Thank you. Yes the Theosophical Society is extraordinary. Blavatsky seems a likeable character...Leadbeater less so! And Annie Besant seems...deluded. But what an influential movement it was.
I'm sorry you think I'm smearing Krishnamurti...I do feel his fame is a little undeserved, that he's a bit of a performer, a bullshitter even. But I do try to balance that out with acknowledgements that his teachings help a lot of people (which is the main thing after all) so if people feel they have been helped by him Id love to hear how. thank you!
