Figuratively speaking, yes. There was one group who felt that only the
teachings of the Mahatma's should be studied or presented by the
Theosophical Society, and the teachings of other religions, even when
they were completely in synch with what the Mahatma's taught, should be
forbidden. The Mahatmas said that each person should find the truth
through their own religion, and let those who wish to follow only the
words of the Mahatma's should form their own special section.
