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 Cross?

An interesting Question indeed Upon a quick search using these keywords "Baird T. Spalding" 1894 other sources ://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%22Baird+T.+Spalding+%22+1894+other+sources&meta= 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 http://www.user.fast.net/~szimhart/cutdecline.htm and here is the whole paragraph Beyond Theosophy, New Thought, and the Silver Shirts a fourth significant influence came from Guy Ballards 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.
