More Order of the Star Pages -- Complete with Swastika and "Maitreya"
Don't stop commenting on the earlier post today, but here are two more significant pages from that same bound volume of collected issues of THE STAR, the journal of THE ORDER OF THE STAR IN THE EAST, the Theosophical order dedicated to Krishnamurti as the new "Christ" and/or "Maitreya. I thought it would crowd the other page a little too much to be meaningful here, so decided to give these two startling pages their own space. There will be more.
Krishnamurti adored as "Maitreya"
The ugly swastika as part of the Theosophical /Maitreya scene 1928
Yes, an ugly history is repeating itself -- this time with Twitter, the internet, flash mobs, cell phones, fax machines, and all the other rapid instruments of modern communication. The old themes, however, remain just about the same!
