Below are two statements, the first by HPB and the second by Radha 
Burnier. Both statements seem to suggest that students of Theosophy 
are encouraged to think for themselves: 

"Be what he may, once that a student abandons the old and trodden 
highway of routine, and enters upon the solitary path of independent 
thought Godward - he is a Theosophist; an original thinker, a seeker 
after the eternal truth with "an inspiration of his own" to solve the 
universal problems." (Source: The Theosophist, October 1879)


"Some members of the TS were upset by Krishnaji's remarks about the 
Masters. What is the Master? Is he just the image anyone has in the 
mind? Sometimes the question was asked of Krishnaji, `Are you a 
freak?' and he said, `No.' According to him the possibility of 
freedom exists for everybody. Then, who is the free man? What is a 
free man? The Master in the real sense is one who has found inward 
freedom, and is master of his own life. Krishnaji did not allow 
conventional thought, accepted ideas and patterns to remain 
unchallenged on this or any other question. How much good he did by 
posing challenges on a variety of questions! Because challenges were 
part of his approach, one could not help feeling tremendously 
enriched as a result of contact with him."
