THE BRIBE INVESTIGATED
Jun 06, 2006 12:59 PM
How much did the Vatican pay Solovyov, as a humble, HOLY BRIBE ?
Or do you believe Solovyov did not receive any Christian Bribe? Worked for free, as a Holy Ghost volunteer?
Since you are so dedicated to divulging Solovyov's treason against HPB and his "versions" about the Masters , perhaps you have already done some practical investigation about the average price of a traitor, in his particular case?
The Coulomb's bribe, at leat part of it, was already revealed.
I also would like to know if David Green received bribes -- if any, to attack some "blanks".

> August 26?27, 1884
> Brussels, Belgium and then later at Elberfeld, Germany
> Having received a letter from my countrywoman, Madame Helena

> I left Paris on the 24th of August. Next morning, at the Grand Hotel
> in Brussels, where I was staying, I met Mlle. [Justine de Glinka]
> (daughter of [a] Russian ambassador and maid of honour to the
> Empress of Russia). Hearing that I was going to Elberfeld to see
> Mme. Blavatsky, whom she knew and for whom she had much respect, she
> decided to come with me. We spent the day together expecting to
> leave in the morning by the nine o'clock train.
> At eight o'clock, being quite ready to depart, I go to Miss [de
> Glinka's] room and find her in a great state of perplexity. All her
> keys, which she always kept about her person in a little bag and
> that she had in this bag on going to bed, had disappeared during the
> night, although the door was locked. Thus, as all her baggage was
> locked, she could not put away the things she had just been using
> and wearing. We were obliged to postpone our departure to the one
> o'clock train and called a locksmith to open the largest trunk. When
> it was opened, all the keys were found in the bottom of the trunk,
> including the key of this trunk itself, attached as usual to the
> rest. Having all the morning to spare, we agreed to take a walk, but
> suddenly I was overcome by weakness and felt an irresistible desire
> to sleep. I begged Miss [de Glinka] to excuse me and went to my
> room, and threw myself on the bed. But I could not sleep and lay
> with my eyes shut, but awake, when suddenly I saw before my closed
> eyes a series of views of unknown places that my memory took in to
> the finest detail. When this vision ceased, I felt no more weakness
> and went to Miss [de Glinka], to whom I related all that had
> happened to me and described to her in detail the views I had seen.
> We left by the one o'clock train and lo! after about half an hour's
> journey, Miss [de Glinka], who was looking out of the window, said
> to me, "Look, here is one of your landscapes!" I recognized it at
> once, and all that day until evening, I saw, with open eyes, all
> that I had seen in the morning with closed eyes. I was pleased that
> I had described to Miss [de Glinka] all my vision in detail. The
> route between Brussels and Elberfeld is completely unknown to me,
> for it was the first time in my life that I had visited Belgium and
> this part of Germany.
> On arriving at Elberfeld in the evening, we took rooms in a hotel
> and then hurried off to see Madame Blavatsky at Mr. Gebhard's house.
> The same evening, the members of the Theosophical Society who were
> there with Mme. Blavatsky showed us two superb oil paintings of the
> Mahatmas [Morya] and Koot Hoomi [painted by Mr. Schmiechen]. The
> portrait of M. especially produced on us an extraordinary
> impression, and it is not surprising that on the way back to the
> hotel, we talked on about him and had him before our eyes. Miss [de
> Glinka] may be left to relate her own experience during that night.
> [Miss de Glinka's experience was similar to Solovyov's. ?Editor.]
> But this is what happened to me:
> Tired by the journey, I lay peacefully sleeping when suddenly I was
> awakened by the sensation of a warm penetrating breath. I open my
> eyes and in this feeble light that entered the room through the
> three windows, I see before me a tall figure of a man, dressed in a
> long white floating garment. At the same time I heard or felt a
> voice that told me, in I know not what language, although I
> understood perfectly, to light the candle. I should explain that,
> far from being afraid, I remained quite tranquil, only I felt my
> heart beat rapidly. I lit the candle, and in lighting it, saw by my
> watch that it was two o'clock. The vision did not disappear. There
> was a living man in front of me. And I recognized instantly the
> beautiful original of the portrait we had seen during the evening
> before. He sat down near me on a chair and began to speak. He talked
> for a long time. Among other things, he told me that in order to be
> fit to see him in his astral body I had had to undergo much
> preparation, and that the last lesson had been given me that morning
> when I saw, with closed eyes, the landscapes that I was to see in
> reality the same day. Then he said that I possess great magnetic
> power, now being developed. I asked him what I ought to do with this
> force. But without answering, he vanished.
> I was alone, the door of my room locked. I thought I had had a
> hallucination and even told myself with fright that I was beginning
> to lose my mind. Hardly had this idea arisen when once again I saw
> the superb man in white robes. He shook his head and, smiling, said
> to me, "Be sure that I am no hallucination and that your reason is
> not quitting you. Blavatsky will prove to you tomorrow before
> everyone that my visit is real." Then he disappeared. I saw by my
> watch that it was three o'clock. I put out the candle and
> immediately went into a deep sleep.
> Next morning, on going with Miss [de Glinka] to Madame Blavatsky,
> the first thing she said to us with an enigmatical smile was "Well!
> How have you passed the night?" "Very well," I replied and I
> added, "Haven't you anything to tell me?" "No," she replied, "I only
> know that the Master was with you with one of his pupils."
> That same evening, Mr. Olcott found in his pocket a little note,
> that all the Theosophists said was in the handwriting of
> M: "Certainly I was there, but who can open the eyes of him who will
> not see."
> This was the reply to my doubts, because all the day I had been
> trying to persuade myself that it was only a hallucination, and this
> made Madame Blavatsky angry.
> I should say that on my return to Paris, where I am now, my
> hallucinations and the strange happenings that surrounded me, have
> completely stopped.
