The statement is, to those of us who have been there, a self-evident
truth. The *attitude* of many - often "high-ranking" - TS organisational
theosophists is, however, often far less objective, and newcomers can
be made to feel that they are expected to study these teachings (and
why not?) and *then* accept these teachings (why?).
