Yes, you`re right. I was just unlucky to get in touch with so called
Leadbeaterian theosophists when I got first interested in
theosophy. Leadbeater`s view of the masters was very peculiar.
People believe in him anyway and so did I at first.

I agree that the teachings are the most important thing. But, I
believe now, that they had much more politics in mind than is
generally acknowledged amongst theosophists and I think it is
important to know that.
And, yes, it is not that important who they were or what their real
names were. It just became important to me when I was trying to
get rid of the silly-occultism of Leadbeater. I (and I`m sure I`m not
the only one) needed that information by P.Johnson & co. to clear
some things in my head - even if their theories are not correct.
