Question ID: 95204
Did any of the ten other persons who were with Baird T. Spalding on
his research party to the Far East in 1894 come forward to verify and
authenticate the story of their trip and the amazing things that
happened on their travels?
  According to the principles set forth by Master Emil, Master Emil
would still be alive today, But, I can find no reference to him, other
than Mr. Spalding's. Is there any other records of a Master Emil other
than Mr. Spalding's?
  Even if Master Emil had passed from this world, he surely would have
passed on his knowledge and guidance to a new generation. are there
any people claiming to do the amazing feats that Master Emil and his
people performed in this day and age?
  Also, is there any records other than Mr. Spalding's of a Temple Of
Silence, Healing Temple, or especially the Temple Of  The Great Tau
There is no answer at this time.

An interesting Question indeed

Upon a quick search using these keywords

"Baird T. Spalding" 1894 other sources

I was able to find this paragraph of information that suggests the
whole trip of 1894 was "a euphemism for writing from the imagination."

The paragraph is located in this page

and here is the whole paragraph

Beyond Theosophy, New Thought, and the Silver Shirts a fourth
significant influence came from Guy Ballard’s personal contact with
Baird T. Spalding, who wrote Life and Teaching of the Masters of the
Far East. This was a series of six volumes, the first published in
1924. Spalding lived with the Ballards briefly in 1929. (22) In his
series he recounts his claimed adventures from 1894-98 in India and
the Tibetan region where he and his party of eleven met superhuman
"masters" with magical powers who initiated them into mysteries of the
great I AM. Despite his claim to the contrary in volume one, Spalding
had not been to the Far East until after his third volume was
published in 1935. (23)  Both Spalding and Ballard wrote their
adventures in the magical autobiography genre, a euphemism for writing
from the imagination.(24) CUT promoted the Spalding series in their
bookstore at conferences I attended in 1979-80 and members I knew
believed the stories literally.

I do realize this in no way answers your question but it is
interesting that Spalding supposedly wasn't even in the Far East when
he claimed to be, according to this source.
