Thanks for your response.

Based on my long personal experience, I have found that any time any
organization gets involved in legal troubles (especially criminal ones)
with governments in multiple countries, I try to keep away from them. While
the troubles of Ananda Marga may have taken place several years ago, one
should not just ignore it by treating as quirks of in the spiritual life.

One of the outstanding records of *all* Theosophical organizations is that
there may have been differences of philosophy/approach, *none* of them have
ever been involved in any legal troubles, especially criminal ones, in
*any* country.

Such impeccable record over nearly 125 years time is something to be proud
of and speaks for the strong foundation on which Theosophy has flourished
in every part of the world.

Coming with this background, one is troubled about any organization which
gets tangled with governments of multiple countries.

Another aspect which one has to keep in view is that I have personally seen
very many organizations trying to recruit from Theosophical circles. While
there is nothing wrong about exercising this freedom, I personally would
deal with other organizations with a great amount of circumspection.
