Max Heindel vs HPB

For one year, 1948 to 1949, at the age of 15, I lived and worked at the Rosicrucian Fellowship, in Oceanside, California. As I recall, the founder, Max Heindel, was somewhat of a student of HPB but "took off" in a more specific "Christian esotericism" direction. Since it has been nearly 60 years since I was, in any way, connected with them, I often wondered how they have fared vis a vis theosophy per se.

Well, this thread's been here a year, but I just picked up the very book that reflects the root of Naren559's curiosity: Blavatsky and the Secret Doctrine by Heindel. It cost me 50 cents at a Friends of the Library booksale. Heindel's organization seems to be doing well enough; here's its web presence.

Thank-you. I checked out the "web presence" link and was quite impressed. The picture is the interior of their chapel, which is an up-to-date improvement compared to 1949. Also I did post their site ddress to the Astrology group as they did, at one time, offer their astrolgy corespondence couse at no cost.

Eleven years later, I finally got around to reading the Heindel book in question!

My review is here: Blavatsky and the Secret Doctrine.
