We all know HPB's agenda concerning the mythic "Jesus," the Church, the Bible origins, the "God idea," etc., but was able to develop little of it in her lifetime.

If you think HPB will be coming back to pickup the old threads, (W. Q. Judge was convinced), have a look at "Acharya S" and her work today -- if the fire and intensity of the "old lady" is dear to your heart, you may sense it again in Acharya as I did. Who knows?


"Drawing from thousands of ancient Egyptian texts in an assortment of translations along with the original language, as well as modern research in a number of other languages, controversial independent scholar of comparative religion and mythology D.M. Murdock puts together an astonishing amount of fascinating information that shows many of our most cherished religious beliefs and concepts did not appear suddenly out of the blue but have long histories in numerous cultures found around the globe, including and especially in the glorious Land of the Pharaohs."

The following comments about Acharya's writings from the respected author, Barbara G. Walker, "The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets," show her dedication to truth. If that's fanaticism so be it -- and so then was HPB. Read, for example, HPB's article "What is Truth."

Acharya's books she says "endorse the creative variety of spiritual practices around the world, stating that 'Those who narrow down their consciousness to reject the wisdom and perception of all other cultures in favor of their own egotistical and ethnocentric "religious" beliefs are often mean-spirited and poorly educated yet very conceited.' Actually, 'Humankind needs to drop all such ego identifications as nationalism, racism and religionism, when they become divisive.'
What Acharya points to is identical to HPB. The "Jesus Story" and all other similar stories of the Sun personified in previous non-Jewish nations since time began find their genesis in the Ancients' acknowledgment and understanding of the Precession of the equinoxes.

H.P. Blavatsky stated that the story of Jesus was invented after the 1st century. Jesus, she says,

"is a deified personification of the glorified type of the great Hierophants of the Temples, and his story, as told in the New Testament, is an allegory, assuredly containing profound esoteric truths, but still an allegory. . . . Every act of the Jesus of the New Testament, every word attributed to him, every event related of him during the three years of the mission he is said to have accomplished, rests on the program of the Cycle of Initiation, a cycle founded on the Precession of the Equinoxes and the Signs of the Zodiac."

(H.P. Blavatsky, Collected Writings, Wheaton, IL: Theosophical Publishing House, 1950-91, 9:225), H.J. Spierenburg (comp.), The New Testament Commentaries of H.P. Blavatsky, San Diego, CA: Point Loma Publications, 1987.
Agreed there are many faces of HPB, though never an apologist not even, or perhaps more accurately, especially not for the TS. It's easy to understand why today most TS' don't even study Blavatsky consistently, preferring instead the Besant-Leadbeater-Tingley brands; stemming I suspect from HPB's obvious disdain for their theocracy and moribund psychism. "Calling the T. S. disloyal, [to the intent of the Mahatma Founders] will shake it off like dust from her feet," she once wrote.

But to the combative faces of Blavatsky, she wrote in one place that the personality of Jesus "was distorted out of recognition" by the Biblical version. (SD 2:231) This followed a clarity of insightful analysis in Isis where she wrote "Under this unexpected garb his personality was all but lost. In the modern Jesus of the Christian Church, we find the ideal of the imaginative Irenaeus, not the adept of the Essenes, the obscure reformer from Galilee. We see him under the disfigured Plato-Philonean mask, not as the disciples heard him on the mount." (IU 2:33-4)

Then is became the character of Jesus whom she cast in the light of strict reformer, adding a powerful Buddhist flavor to the mixture:

“Jesus is Neb, the false Messiah, the destroyer of the old orthodox religion,” says the Codex. He is the founder of the sect of the new nazars, and, as the words clearly imply, a follower of the Buddhist doctrine. In Hebrew the word naba means to speak of inspiration; and [image] is nebo, a god of wisdom. But Nebo is also Mercury, and Mercury is Buddha in the Hindu monogram of planets. Moreover, we find the Talmudists holding that Jesus was inspired by the genius of Mercury.

"The Nazarene reformer had undoubtedly belonged to one of these sects; though, perhaps, it would be next to impossible to decide absolutely which. But what is self-evident is that he preached the philosophy of Buddha-Sakyamûni." (IU 2:132-3)
I don't think that when HPB is back she/he is going to repeat what she had already written. If this thread is about Acharya's books, I don't see the reason of such a title.
I'm not selling books Ferran, just playing with an idea. If you had to pick someone today who might be HPB reincarnated, who would you pick? A real question.
My sincere thought is that if HPB is again in this world, he/she is now really aware of the dangers of public work, having learnt the lesson, and would not be recognized: his/her field of service might look very different today.
Well, and I don't see anyone like HPB in nowadays world.
Have a nice day!
