Blavasky Was She A Racist?

I have come across many people in my life who believe that they know everything, even though theoretically this is not actually possible. How in the world can anyone have a firm grasp on all the world has to offer when there is so much of it? While there are people like Blavatsky who have this ancient wisdom, the reality is that no one can be mindful of every piece of information that is available out there and when you are teaching esoteric subject that appear contrary to established church teachings you are bound to attract criticism even if what you are sharing is considered ageless wisdom .

In case you have no idea who Blavatsky is, she was an occultist and author who founded the Theosophical Society in the 1870s. Interestingly enough, she is not a fan of the idea that people can connect with the dead. Most people who have a deep knowledge and interest in the occult certainly have a different view on this. This discerns her from all of the other people who are walking around with the occultist title.

I am one of those people who knows a lot of information across a wide range of different topics, and this makes people get the impression that I think I know everything. being a know-it-all has become part of the persona that people believe I have, but I am not in agreement that this is part of my character. I suppose I am similar to Blavatsky in the sense that I have people who are on my side as far as understanding the knowledge I possess, yet there are others who would stake their life on the fact that I don’t know as much as I think I do.

While Blavatsky is one of those people who has so much knowledge that some believe that she is far ahead of the pack, some of her ideas seemed to threaten others. Untruths have been said that she was someone who had thoughts about others races of people that were antisemetic and insulting and other falsehoods such as that she has said that Asians, Africans and aboriginal Australians are not as valuable as Europeans. She has also been falsely accused that she thought aboriginal Australians are half-animal. In fact nothing could be further from the truth. The Theosophical Movement was founded with three chief objects or aims.

First: To form the nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.

Second: To promote the study of Aryan and other Eastern literatures, religions and sciences.

Third: To investigate unexplained laws of nature and the psychical powers of man. (The Key to Theosophy by H.P. Blavatsky)

The theme of Universal Brotherhood is emphasised constantly throughout all the writings and teachings of HPB. She has shared a wealth of knowledge on divine science and esoteric subjects.
