  >The above by you I will agree upon. I do not however think she ever had a true or close contact, because of the number of faults in the books - and for instance the lack of irrefutable proof of Gutpa-Vidya (Atma-Vidya) in the book A Treatise on Cosmic Fire. But I also think that some of the content in the books are promoting altruism - no doubt can be said about this, I think. About the Dark brotherhood thing - I will however throw a yes and no answer to. I think it all depends on how one interpret her books and use them. The overall view I have is that the content of the AAB books and Lucis Trust all in all are highly problematic and show clear signs on misleading people into pseudo-Christianized emotionalism without showing an understanding of the difference between sectarian and non-sectarian teachings, and the psychological term subtle Mind Control.

  My feeling from the few books I read of hers was that she was trying
  too hard to make her philosophy orderly. It seemed too
  compartmentalized. I think Annie Besant's books are orderly, but I
  never had the feeling that she was trying to fit a square peg into a
  round hole the way I did with AAB.
