All correspondence between Mrs Besant and C. W. Leadbeater are in AA. They are quoted here from copies sent to me by B. Shiva Rao at Krishnamurti’s request.

 1. Blavatsky and her Teachers, Jean Overton Fuller, pp. 24–27 (East–West Publications, 1988).

 2. According to tradition, the Buddha was a position in the hierarchy. Gautama had been the last Buddha. The Lord Maitreya, it was said, was to be the next Buddha after he had fulfilled his mission on earth, hence the title of Bodhisattva. Madame Blavatsky made no mention in any of her writings of the coming of the Lord Maitreya, but she evidently said something to her followers, even if it was misunderstood, because Mrs Besant reminded her critics when she founded the Order of the Star in the East that Madame Blavatsky had ‘regarded it as the mission of the Theosophical Society to prepare the world for the coming of the next great Teacher, though she put that event perhaps half a century later than I do’.

Thầy Thích Nhuận Tâm như dường không có ngày nào để nghỉ ngơi... Sau Hội Tết Mile Square Park vừa xong, Thầy đã lo sắp xếp để sẽ tổ chức buổi tiệc Tri ân vào Chủ Nhật 4/3/2018 này tại Việt Báo Gallery ở thị trán Westminster.
Nếu các chính trị gia của chúng ta không phản ứng lại sự than khóc của quốc gia vào buổi sáng hôm nay, thì chúng ta dùng lá phiếu để loại bỏ họ ra khỏi chức vụ. Chúng ta nhấn mạnh về sự quan trọng của lòng từ bi, nhân cách đạo đức, và sức mạnh đạo đức. Và tôi cũng chia sẻ quan điểm của Đức Đạt Lai Lạt Ma, nói rằng lời cầu nguyện suông sẽ không giải quyết được vấn đề nầy.
Để tri ân những Ân Nhân trong thời gian qua đã tận tình giúp đỡ Thượng Tọa Thích Nhuận Tâm, Trụ trì Chùa Lá, Giám Đốc Trung Tâm Ngoại Ngữ Miễn Phí Thiện Nhơn Chùa Lá - Gò Vấp (www. hoàn thành những Phật sự tại California.
