I completely agree with Liesel.
Everyone, Besant, Leadbeater, Bailey etc.. (including you, me and everyone
associated with theosophy) has contributed. Some more and some less.
Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. We all may not agree on so many
things. If X's speeches or writings have helped some, then so be it. If some
do not like or agree with X's speeches or writings so be it. We cannot get
unanimity on anything. If any one has sacrificed anything to help fellow
beings, however small or great, that is of utmost importance to me. I
thought I should share my fundamental approach, even though at times I may
seem to be critical.
