Based on an early (1870s?) letter from a Master, published in 1888 as "Some Words on Daily Life":

One who has reached to the full comprehension of the name and nature of a theosophist will sit in judgment on no man or action.
Letter from a Master, see HPB's CW VIII:146ff or Letters From The Masters Second series, letter 82.

May 8 is White Lotus Day, the day HP Blavatsky died. She suggested reading some of Edwin Arnold's Light of Asia on the anniversary of her death. Here is a little from it...
That night the wife of King Suddhôdana,
Maya the Queen, asleep beside her Lord,
Dreamed a strange dream; dreamed that a star from heaven —

Splendid, six-rayed, in color rosy-pearl,
Whereof the token was an Elephant
Six-tusked and whiter than Vahuka’s milk —

Shot through the void and, shining into her,
Entered her womb upon the right. Awaked,
Bliss beyond mortal mother’s filled her breast,
And over half the earth a lovely light
Forewent the morn. The strong hills shook; the waves
Sank lulled; all flowers that blow by day came forth
As ‘twere high noon; down to the farthest hells
Passed the Queen’s joy, as when warm sunshine thrills
Wood-glooms to gold, and into all the deeps
A tender whisper pierced. “Oh ye,” it said,
“The dead that are to live, the live who die,
Uprise, and hear, and hope! Buddha is come!”
May all seek, find and follow the Path of Buddhas.

As the white ray of light is decomposed by the prism into the various
colors of the solar spectrum, so the beam of divine truth, in passing through the
three-sided prism of man's nature, has been broken up into vari-colored fragments
called RELIGIONS. And, as the rays of the spectrum, by imperceptible shadings,
merge into each other, so the great theologies that have appeared at different
degrees of divergence from the original source, have been connected by minor
schisms, schools, and off-shoots from the one side or the other. Combined, their
aggregate represents one eternal truth; separate, they are but shades of human error
and the signs of imperfection.

It is true that the world is in a saddened and anxious state. But
mark you, I think it unwise and spiritually and psychologically
unwholesome to emphasize this, for it raises none to higher things
but depresses courage, the courage to meet life and carry on in a
higher and nobler way. See the beauty in and behind things, see
the beauty in your fellow men; see likewise the ignominy and the
ugliness in life, although do not let these latter depress you or
discourage you. There is no reason to lose our calm, our inner
peace, in order to become like unto them of the mobs, passion
driven, governed by prejudice. Such an attitude will not help us
or those who suffer. But we can send forth into the world thoughts
of courage and hope and an optimistic looking into the future,
founded on our own blessed God-Wisdom: that no matter what
happens through man's folly or infamy or infidelity to his spiritual
inner God, to his spiritual Essence, there are always right and
justice which will ultimately triumph over all. The only thing is
to be sure we are on the side of right and justice - and we cannot
always judge by appearances.

During WW II some Theosophists used radio to try and offset a little of the hatred in the atmosphere.
