>>I belong to TS Adyar, but I also belong to the TS in Canada, which was

> Too? What for?
>Maybe, for studying "Hiawatha"? :)

>>I think Adyar, at this point, is much too strict with

>hists they  associate it with Adyar headquarter.  And if Adyar
>does something wrong it automatically extends to all  theosop-
>hists in people's opinion.  Because of that an acknowledgement

>> The Theosophists > on the Internet are not only Adyar Theosophists.
>...
>> the rules of TI are a modernized version of the 3 objects.
>    I think that these "three objects" are only important con-

>    Some people say (in this list, too) that SD is wrong.  But
>it cannot be a ground for expellation.  HPB is famous theosop-
>hist,  like  Einstein  is famous physicist.  And physics in XX
>century is associated with name of Einstein. But if his theory
>of  relativity  will be refutated,  it will not be end of phy-
>sics. Contrary, it will be a good progress for it!
>    And studying other teachings cannot be cause of expellati-
>on, too.  Because of second object of TS imposes to study dif-
>ferent teachings. I would better expell those who doesn't :)
>BTW, russian orthodox church expelled HPB (and all her  follo-
>wers, too) two years ago. Since orthodox church doesn't accept
>reincarnation, HPB is now only under  God's  jurisdiction.  So
>they placed  themselves  higher  than God (or began believe to
>reincarnation, which is heresy, too). :)
>    What I am all this writing for?  HPB wrote in "Isis unvei-
>led" that there's more than 400 christian sects in USA.  I af-
>raid that theosophists can "catch up & leave behind" as soviet
>enthusiasts of 30's said.
>    Have theosophists ever trying to fix this situation? Here,
>using Internet, we have wider possibilities than before. Those
>who are Adyar-F.T.S. can organize letter campaign to Adyar he-
>adquarter in order to force Adyar officials begin the reinteg-
>ration process.  I  don't  mean full reintegration but signing
>something like a "charter" on  mutual  acknowlegement  between
>all theosophical  &  semi-theosophical lodges.  Since theosop-
>hists are divided, their talks about "forming nucleus of brot-
>herhood" seem funny for other people, as well as other doctri-
>nes especially if latter were indeed a cause of separation.
