If there are any "Bastards" -- real or imagined here, you are in very good
company. Some of the world greatest geniuses have been bastards. One well
known example, is the Great Indian Teacher Shri Shankaracharya who is
revered by millions even today after several centuries, and who is
considered by every Theosophical writer starting with HPB onwards as one of
the Greatest Adepts to incarnate was considered a bastard and when his
mother died, the people in the village shunned Him and refused to give him
fire to cremate his mother's remains. He by his power lighted the funeral
pyre and his mother was cremated. The world owes a lot of gratitude to many
bastards for the good they have done to it.
