I have a number of problems with Radha, myself. Her requirement that
newly formed Russian Lodges pass a test before admittance caused a lot
of bad feelings. In the case of Canada, at least, she claims that while
she understood the predicament that they were in (if they kept legal
ties to Adyar, they would lose their tax-free status), she felt that
letting them stay in "under the table" would have been hypocracy.
Still, the individual members SHOULD have been given the choice as to
which section to stay with.
However, she claims that idealogical differences within Theosophy had
nothing to do with the decision.
