Do Masters Judge People?

Of course, Masters of the Wisdom judge and evaluate people. It could 
not be otherwise:  everyone has to evaluate persons and they are no 

But by what criteria do Adepts judge human beings?  How to they 
judge those who aspire for universal wisdom under any of its many 

The Eastern  Adept who wrote the greater number of Letters to A. P. 
Sinnett once taught:

"We, my dear sirs, always judge men by their motives and the moral 
effects of their actions : for the world's standards  and prejudice 
we have no respect." (1) 

 So this is a fundamental criterion by which Initiates and Masters 
judge people. 

Indeed, the degree of  honesty in one's intentions and the moral 
effects of one's actions are two central factors in one's karmic 
records,  and in one's life.   

Something  to think about, as we seek for self-knowledge. 

Regards,  Carlos.
