Dear Bro Anand;
I respect You and your right to hold your views, But I fundamentally Dis-agree with you.
H.P.B., Annie Besant & C.W.L. were all disciples of the Masters of Wisdom,from the Great Brotherhood.
As their representatives they gave us certain teachings which we know as "Theosophy." I am in agreement with you that both Annie Besant and C.W.L. are Great Saints and follow and respect their interpretation of Theosophy.
It is "The Brotherhood" which we must look to as the actual "Source " of our teachings and Not any particular discple, however much we may admire them. We are told that at the head of The Brotherhood a Great August Being known as "The World Teacher" is one of the presiders along with others.
Disciples however advanced they may be, and have certain advanced Vision, are still human beings subject to minor error and confusion of interpretation.
When the World Teacher speaks no disciple would be presumptious enough to condradict Him, as at His State of Being includes Superior Vision and Wisdom.
Krishnaurti was the expression of The World Teacher, and his message does Not contradict Theosophy,
rather it is a Fulfilment of Theosophy.
I think that it may be OUR interpretion of Theosophy that needs adjustment.
Warm Fraternal Greetings;
