I have noticed that high functionary's in the ES often
study the Mahatma Letters more than usual, but the way I
have always understood it, the ES was meant to make
brotherhood more real, and promote the esoteric kind of
living. That is, living for humanity and serving humanity
the best way posible. And if those who wanted to follow the
words of the Mahatma's were ES-members, then why was not
Sinnet an ES-member?

SO WHAT? That may just be Indian prejudice speaking. Are
you presuming she is personally in contact with the
Mahatma's and therefore infallible?
