"Theosophy usually does not produce an exact religion; rather, just the vague but persisting religious flavor that death may not entirely end things, after all. . . ."—General Theosophy

"discussion on religion tends to arouse strong passions."

The various TS organizations have members that will fight amongst themselves with great vigour. Unfortunately, They have created several religions. HPB created a syncretic system, and was an honorable attempt to keep it religiously neutral. Human beings seem to have a natural tendency to create religions when there is none. sad.

Theosophy should be above infighting, not below it. I do not like to talk about this either.

An experience belongs to the human who has one/them. One cannot argue against a personal experience. Hence - many religions. <g> 

The "General" has touched on this before, as I seem to recall.

Peace -

John

I am of the view that theosophy and religion are near antonyms....however I really would not like to discuss this beyond what I’ve said since discussion on religion tends to arouse strong passions.
