Do you actually listen to yourself when you write such things? For 
example, can you provide any evidence whatsoever that the TS, as a 
whole, is following Krishnamurti? Are you able to see the aberration 
of such a point of view? Why don't you use your digital acumen and 
conduct a poll world wide to see how many TS members follow 
Krishnamurti? If you continue with such insulting sweeping statements 
you will certainly cease to have me as a listener.

Why don't write to the Chairman of the European Federation, Mis Tran-
Thi-Kim-Dieu? She is also a member of the General Council of the TS. 
Her email address is displayed on a number of websites. Russia does 
come under the regional area of that Federation.

Under the TS Rules, Lodges are administered by ELECTED officers and 
the TS does not discriminate regarding affiliation to any school of 
thought. In one sweeping statement you have insulted thousands of 
Lodge officers world wide who have been ELECTED to work for the TS 
through their Lodges.

I am sure Miss Kim Dieu will be happy to correspond with you on this 
matter. She has visited Russia several times in the past.
