Amidst assertions by The Franklin Register and Norfolk County Journal that H. P. Blavatsky held a 33rd-degree Freemasonic status, Blavatsky issued a clarifying response. She articulated her detachment from Western masonic lodges and their hierarchical degrees, underscoring her affiliation with Eastern lodges, notably Sat B'hai and of the Rite of Adoption of the Ancient and Primitive Rite. Blavatsky's stance provoked disagreement among certain Freemasons, particularly regarding her ability to be considered a Freemason. In refutation, she emphasized her non-association with the 33rd degree, while expressing her intent to retain the diploma bestowed by JOHN YARKER, a Sovereign Grand Master, which conferred upon her the title of "Brother."
H. P. Blavatsky promptly emphasizes her absence as a 33rd-degree Freemason and her non-involvement in Western Lodges. She asserts that participating in Oriental Freemasonry should legitimately qualify her for the title of Mason, regardless of not acquiring male-specific degrees. She goes so far as to indicate in other correspondences that her teachings surpass the collective impact of all Grand Lodges.
In summary, H. P. Blavatsky's absence as a 33rd-degree Freemason is evident, even though she engaged with multiple Co-Masonic factions throughout her lifetime. Notably, she acquired basic literacy skills from her relatives' masonic journals. This raises questions about her relationship with Freemasonry and the skepticism it evokes from Freemasons themselves, despite her being honored as a Crowned Princess. H. P. Blavatsky was resolute in her belief that Freemasonry, could be traced back to its origins with Loyola, the founder of Jesuitism and an accused Alumbrado.
This notion is said to have originated with John Robison (1739–1805), who held a position as a professor of Natural Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. He introduced this concept in "Proofs of a Conspiracy" 1797.
Adding to the narrative, a German bookseller and Freemason residing in Paris, operating under the name C. Lenning, elaborated on the story in a manuscript titled "Encyclopedia of Freemasonry."
Continuing to build upon this account, the renowned English Masonic author, Dr. George Oliver (1782–1867), progressed the tale in his work "Historical Landmarks" from 1846. He even asserted that King Charles II was actively involved, attending these gatherings.
Freemasons refute these allegations, yet it's important to note their commitment to stringent and solemn blood oaths that safeguard the order's mysteries. This is why there are persistent contradictions and counterarguments that the lodge consistently contends with.
Antimasonic.org stands in opposition to Helena Blavatsky's teachings, though it's undeniable that her claim of Jesuit infiltration resonates with the warnings our forefathers and antagonizes Freemasonry.
