     Blavatsky was one of the first occultists to make goddess worship an alternative to Christianity, paving the way for Gardner and the Wiccans. Likewise, Gardner borrowed some ideas from Blavatsky, particularly her take on reincarnation which was different from the Eastern idea of it.

    Even though Blavatsky admitted she was a fake, there are still a handful of followers that refuse to believe it. There are two branches of the Theosophical society, the result of a schism after her death. One branch is based in Arya, India, the other in Wheaton, Illinois. In the 1990's during a Theosophist convention of the American branch, a pair of ice tongs Blavatsky had 'materialized' during her career (no doubt by slight of hand) was proudly on display. Some people will always want to believe.

    Supposedly, the Tibetan masters she was in telepathic contact with lived for centuries. Why then was she in poor health during her final years, and only lived to be 61 instead of hundreds of years like Coot Hoomi and Count St. Germain? Why follow a follow a fraud who caused so much evil? Blavatsky helped in part create the holocaust. Her racist doctrines are more than just  pure fantasy, they are also pure evil.

Who Was "Coot Hoomi"?
      Coot Hoomi was the creation of Madame Blavatsky.  Cult leaders have a habit of making fun of people who follow them. Coot Hoomi is a play on words for Col. Henry Olcott, and early supporter of her's and a founding member of theTheosophical Society. Although Ol' Cooot isn't really some kind of superhuman Tibetan monk who lives inside a mountain in Shangri La, many occultists and psychics through the years jave claimed to be in "telepathic contact" with this fictional character. The A.M.O.R.C. continues the hoax, and spells his nake "Khuthumi" to make it look more Egyptian. The now defunct "Astara" occult mail order school also claimed to be in contact with him. Yep, good Ol' Coot has made many a fake psychic money over the years, even if he isn't real!
COLONEL HENRY STEEL OLCOTT Helped Blavatsky found the Theosophical society. Since he was in Blavatsky's inner circle, he no doubt knew of her tricks. Olcott wrote A Bhuddist Chatachism, and developed his own standing within the Theosophical Society, which irked Blavatsky.  For a while Olcott and Blavatsky shared a house together in a platonic relationship. A little acknowledged fact among occultists is that Col. Olcott is where Blavatsky got the idea for the name of her fictitious ascended master 'Coot Hoomii''s a play on words for Colonel Olcott!
    The Society for Psychical Research published a detailed 200 page report, detailing the methods of trickery Blavatsky used. The report concluded by calling her ' of the most accomplished, ingenious, and interesting imposters in history'. Many of her closest followers were said to have suffered miserable fates, including suicide.  Biographer Gertrude Williams wrote that 'she ruled her followers ambidextrously, through glamour and fear'. Toward the end of her life, she wrote a confession to one of her detractors, a Russian writer named Solyvov, and admitted she had lied about many things, including the existence of the Mahatmas, having hundreds of lovers (she was actually a virgin until they day she died), that she faked communications with spirits and that some of the phenomena her followers saw could be attributed to hallucination! Even then, she wrote the letter in the most dramatic manner possible, making herself sound like a persecuted martyr rather than a fraud. Though Blavatsky was proven a fraud in her lifetime and even finally admitted it, her Theosophical Society continues on. There are chapters in several countries even today, including the U.S. Her followers will even say things like 'Sure, HPB had a streak of charlatanism in her, but you have to look past that and read her teachings for what they really are.'

CHARLES LEADBEATER The number two man in Theosophy under Bessant's leadership. Leadbeater was an Episcopal minister who became a Theosophist, simply after having been handed a letter that claimed the spurious 'Coot Hoomi' wanted him to join! He would later claimed he joined around 350 B.C. in Greece by Pythagoras, and then spent the rest of the time in Theosophist Heaven called Devachan. Leadbeater has been described as a 'hopeless romantic', and not meant in a good way.     Leadbeater , according to writer James Webb, Leadbeater was a 'homosexual' (The Occult Underground by James Webb, pg 87) and also notes that "From his early days as a Hampshire curate until the close of his life at at Sydney, he seems to have had an incurable taste for young men."(Ibid pg.97). It was Leadbeater who had discovered an 8 year old Krishnamurti on an Indian beach and decided to 'adopt' him. Krishnamurti's father nearly ruined the scheme for the Theosophists, however, when he accused Leadbeater of 'corrupting' his son. 'There was...small doubt that Leadbeater had been up to his old tricks again', according to Annie Bessant's biographer, Arthur H. Nethercot ( The First Five Lives of Annie Besant by Arthur H. Nethercot pg 102).

    What are these teachings? Blavatsky's Theosophy deals with such hookum as the "seven root races". The god like Aryan race lived on Atlantis and lost their god-like status by intermarrying with Jews. Eventually they blew up Atlantis through black magic. The next root race were invisible, made from fire mist, and lived at the North Pole. No doubt, neighbors of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! I wonder if they were invisible how anyone knew they existed since they can't be seen? The race after that was just barely visible, lived in Asia and invented sex. A race of giant telepathic apes inhabited the now vanished continent of Lemuria. (I know, it sounds like a D.C. comic.).  Her writings are also anti-Semetic as well as anti-Christian. She considered Jesus to have been 'a failure', and seemed troubled, if not jealous, of the Virgin Mary.  Blavastky's hokum was a big inspiration for many occultists of her day. It stirred up interest in goddess wirship and influenced many Rosicrucians groups, The Golden Dawn, Astara( the California psychic church and mail order occult school run by the Cheney's), The Church Universal and Triumphant (Elizabeth Claire Prophet's gun toting survivalist cult), among others. The Rosicrucian Fellowship uses Blavatsky's teachings for the bulk of their mail order 'Western Philosophy' course. Aleister Crowley, claimed to have actually met her in person, and Blavatsky's books were required readings for members of  Crowley's occult organizations.

     HPB was probably the first to introduce reincarnation into Spiritualism. Up until then, most Spiritists believed in a heaven like existence throughout eternity, called 'Summerland'. Blavatsky also introduced 'evolution' into reincarnation by saying people were reincarnated as people, not randomly switching incarnations between animals and people as in the Eastern version of  Reincarnation (8).

     Her saddest and most horrifying accomplishment was being the spiritual impetus for the Nazi regime, decades after her death. As you can guess by her doctrines about Aryans previously mentioned, many German occultists and racists embraced Blavatsky's idea of being descended from Aryan god-men and her anti-Semeticism. Blatvatsky's favorite occult symbol was the swastika, which she claimed was the symbol of the Aryan race. This symbol was adopted by the Nazis. Heinrich Himmler was a devout believer in Blavatsky's teachings, and even went on an expedition to Asia as Germany was losing WWII to try and find the link to the Tibetans and the Aryans.
