Is the Theosophical Encyclopaedia a joint venture of all theosophical groups,
i.e., The Theosophical Society (Adyar), the United Lodge of Theosophists and
The Theosophical Society (Pasadena) or is it under the sponsorship of just
one organization? Just curious. Definitions may vary according to what
"school" of the theosophy one belongs. For instance, the term SOLOR LOGOS may
have no meaning for a ULT Theosophist. The ASTRAL BODY may mean the exactly
that for a so-called "neo-theosophist", that is, a vehicle of consciousness
for the Astral Plane. However, for a Blavatskyite the terms 'astral body"
refers the Etheric Double. Geoffrey Farthing, for instance, is in the
Blavatsky school and his classifications generally coincide with that of W.Q.
