      > ====================================================
      > Since H.P. Blavatsky's death in 1891, numerous individuals
      > have claimed contact with her Masters, stating that
      > they were new "messengers" conveying further esoteric
      > teachings.
      > The end result has been a confusing morass of claims,
      > counterclaims and various contradictory and conflicting
      > teachings.
      > Even during her lifetime, Mme. Blavatsky told her
      > Theosophical students:
      > "Great are the desecrations to which the names of two
      > of the Masters have been subjected. There is hardly
      > a medium who has not claimed to have seen them."
      > "Every bogus swindling Society, for commercial purposes, now claims
      > to be guided and directed by 'Masters' often supposed to be far
      > higher than ours! Many and heavy are the sins of those who advanced
      > these claims, prompted either by desire for lucre, vanity, or
      > irresponsible mediumship . . . ."
      > Below is a partial list of the claimants:
      > (1) In the 1890s, William Q. Judge said he was in contact with HPB's
      > Master Morya as well as the deceased HPB. Judge claimed he
      > precipitated letters from Master M. and gave out further esoteric
      > teachings.
      > (2) Annie Besant and Charles Leadbeater affirmed that they were in
      > direct communication with HPB's Masters and the deceased HPB. They
      > gave out various Theosophical teachings in their voluminous writings.
      > (3) Katherine Tingley, the occult successor of Judge, said she was
      > in contact with HPB's Masters and claimed to have met on at least
      > two occasions the Master Morya in his physical body.
      > (4) G. de Purucker, Tingley's successor, testified that the Masters
      > M. & K.H. came to visit him in 1929 at Theosophical Society
      > headquarters, Point Loma, San Diego, California. Purucker claimed
      > that he was allowed to give out deeper esoteric teachings than HPB,
      > Judge or Tingley had.
      > (5) Alice Bailey said she was in contact with Masters K.H. and D.K
      > and wrote more than 20 volumes of teachings said to be from D.K. She
      > even gave out further installments of the Stanzas of Dzyan.
      > (6) Mrs. Francia A. La Due (of the Temple of the People) gave out
      > messages from the Masters, especially from Hilarion. She also
      > published more Stanzas from the Book of Dzyan.
      > (7) Guy Ballard (of the "I Am" Movement) claimed to be in
      > communication with the Masters, especially St. Germain.
      > (8) Helena Roerich (of the Agni Yoga Society) published some 13
      > volumes of communications supposedly from the Master Morya.
      > (9) Mark Prophet and his wife Elizabeth Clare (of the Church
      > Universal and Triumphant) claimed to be the emissaries of the Great
      > White Brotherhood and have channeled thousands of messages from El
      > Morya, Kut Humi, the Virgin Mary, Hercules, Chastity and a variety
      > of other Masters and entities.
      > (10) Earlyne Chaney (of Astara) believed she was in communication
      > with Kut-Hi-Mi and Zoser and other Masters of the Great White
      > Brotherhood. She has given out various so-called esoteric and occult
      > teachings.
      > (11) Nada-Yolanda (of Mark-Age, Inc) has channeled numerous messages
      > from M., K.H., and others Masters associated with UFOs.
      > (12) George King, Max Heindel, Rudolf Steiner and Geoffrey Hodson
      > have claimed clairvoyant powers and to be in contact with various
      > Masters - Rosicrucian, Theosophical, extraterrestrial or otherwise.
      > (13) Other supposed communications from HPB's Masters have come from
      > Brother Philip in his book titled Secret of the Andes, from Cyril
      > Scott in his series of books starting with The Initiate, and from
      > David Anrias in his book Through the Eyes of the Masters.
      > And the list goes on . . . .
      > How many of these individuals were actually in contact with
      > Blavatsky's Masters?
      > During H.P. Blavatsky's lifetime, there were a few individuals other than Blavatsky who claimed to be in contact with her Masters.
      > For example, A.P. Sinnett wrote in his book The Early Days of
      > Theosophy:
      > "About this time [early July 1884] Mrs. Holloway, a wonderfully
      > gifted American psychic came to stay with us. . . . .She used to get
      > vivid clairvoyant visions of the Master, - could pass on messages to
      > me from K.H. and on one occasion he actually made use of her to
      > speak to me in the first person." p. 27
      > But the Master K.H. (in a letter received by Sinnett July 18, 1884) pronounced Sinnett's claim false and untrue:
      > "You ask me if you can tell Miss Arundale what I told you thro' Mrs.
      > H[olloway]. . . . . .[But] I have never . . . communicated with you
      > or any one else thro' her. . . . . She is an excellent but quite
      > undeveloped clairvoyante. . . . ." The Mahatma Letters, 2nd ed., p.
      > 355
      > During this same summer, Master KH wrote to Mrs. Holloway:
      > "Your vivid creative fancy [imagination] evokes illusive Gurus and
      > chelas, and puts into their mouths words coined the instant before
      > in the mint of your mind, unknown to yourself."
      > "The false appear as real, as the true, and you have no exact method
      > of detection since you are yet prone to force your communications to
      > agree with your preconceptions. . . . " Mrs. Holloway and the
      > Mahatmas, Letter 17
      > Elsewhere Master KH wrote:
      > "Vainly do your modern seers and their prophetesses, creep into
      > every cleft and crevice without outlet or continuity they chance to
      > see; and still more vainly, when once within do they lift up their
      > voices and loudly cry: 'Eureka! We have gotten a revelation from the
      > Lord!' — for verily have they nothing of the kind. They have
      > disturbed but bats, less blind their intruders; who, feeling them
      > flying about, mistake them as often for angels — as they too have
      > wings! . . . "
      > Master Koot Hoomi, The Mahatma Letters, 2nd ed., Letter 48
      > How many of the claimants listed above who have proclaimed in
      > effect: "Eureka! We have gotten a revelation or message from the
      > Masters!" were in reality simply victims of their own "vivid
      > creative fancy [imagination]" which conjured up "illusive Gurus and
      > chelas" and attributed to these imaginary Masters "words coined the
      > instant before in the mint of" their own minds??
      > Another example of this constructing of imaginary people is as
      > follows:
      > Stainton Moses (a famous English medium and "seer" of the 1870s and
      > 1880s) wrote to A.P. Sinnett about his own "spirit guide" Imperator:
      > ". . . my inner spirit-sense is opened. Only yesterday . . .
      > Imper[ator] . . . was clearly visible and audible to me. . . . "
      > To this comment by Stainton Moses [S.M.], Master Koot Hoomi wrote to
      > Sinnett:
      > ". . . So is Jesus and John the Baptist [clearly visible and
      > audible] to Edward Maitland; [who is] as true and as honest and
      > sincere as S.M. . . . And does not E. Maitland see Hermes the first
      > and second and Elijah, etc."
      > "Finally does not Mrs. [Anna] Kingsford feel as sure as S.M. with
      > regard to . . . [Imperator] that she saw and conversed with
      > God!! . . . And who purer or more truthful than that woman or
      > Maitland!"
      > "Mystery, mystery will you exclaim. IGNORANCE we answer; the
      > creation of that we believe in and want to see. . . . " The Mahatma
      > Letters, 2nd ed., Letter 90.
      > So a student of Theosophy might ask himself:
      > Do I believe all of these individuals were actually in contact with
      > Blavatsky's Masters? And if the answer is no, then how do I
      > DETERMINE which ones were actually in real contact with her Masters?
      > Furthermore, how many of these individuals were victims of their own
      > "vivid creative fancy"? Master K.H.'s words are quite revealing and
      > sobering:
      > "Your vivid creative fancy [imagination] evokes illusive Gurus and
      > chelas, and puts into their mouths words coined the instant before
      > in the mint of your mind, unknown to yourself."
      > Food for thought.
