Actually the Buddhist Lodge of the TS which was transformed into the
Buddhist Society (another unknown scandal perhaps?). In 1923 he published
an edition of the Mahatma Letters and remained a theosophist and a buddhist
throughout his life (he died in the 1970es or 1980es).
I discovered this suppressed fact by accidence and The Buddhist Society
admitted it (I used to be a member). But the word theosophy vanished from
there long ago (even when describing the life of CH). It is a strange
experience to see history change before your very eyes, to see important
facts and aspects simply disappear!.
