Nancy , Jerry H-E and others:
I am going to make a couple of quick remarks before I leave my office
for the day on the question below regarding any differences between
the teachings of AAB and HPB. I certainly hope to follow-up more on
Jerry's comments later this week.
I have read sevral of AAB's books and in addition I have been in the
AS (Arcane School, which AAB founded) for some 4 years. All I have
read within the AS and within the books of AAB regarding HPB has been
nothing but a confirmation of the truth in HPB's teachings; if AAB or
DK did find something in HPB's books which was not to their liking or
which was not a fact, I have NOT seen any references to it.
The problem from the other side (i.e. regarding HPB's position on AAB
teachings) is hard to gauge since HPB passed on some 30 years before
AAB started writing her books. I have so far only read one of HPB's
books (and that too I am only about 80% finished--some 1300 pages out
of 1500 of SD). There is only ONE paragraph that I have come across
in SD that may be considered somewhat different from AAB's writing,
and I think even this paragraph is perhaps explainable in the light of
the fact that the Masters (or the Hierarchy) seem to 'experiment' or
institue changes in response to demands by Humanity.
The para I am referring to appears in Vol I towards the very end of
Section II (before the Addendum on comparison of SD with Science)--
I'll have to quote the page number etc. later. It says that the
Maitreya Buddha, the great Kalki Avatar will appear during the 7th
Root Race, several hundred thousand years from now. But I have read
in the 'Reappearance of the Christ' (ROC) by AAB that in response to
Humanity's invocation during the great World War during this century,
the Christ has decided to reappear in physical form sometime by the
year 2025. Perhaps there is a way to reconcile these two statements
made by these two great initiates (HPB and AAB), and I hope to write
more on this later.
MAY THE POWER OF THE ONE LIFE POUR THROUGH THE GROUP OF ALL TRUE
SERVERS! MAY THE LOVE OF THE ONE SOUL CHARACTERIZE THE LIVES OF ALL
WHO SEEK TO AID THE GREAT ONES! MAY I FULFILL MY PART IN THE ONE WORK
THROUGH SELF_FORGETFULNESS, HARMLESSNESS AND RIGHT SPEECH!
In Love and Light,
