By reading the correspondence, Daniel comes over as someone who studies the
Theosophy of the Mahatmas (KH & M) and HPB. And for those of us (or some of
us) who study these teachings it is terribly difficult to see your point of
view as being credible. The Mahatmas warn of unprogressed planetaries who
parade under varoius guises, and they are very "real" in some senses. A
main difference between our views is that you seem to somehow feel that we
can bring the Masters down to our level, if one has understood you
correctly, while the Theosophical teachings teach that it is for us to lift
ourselves to their level.
The very word MAHATMA: MAHAT/ATMA would suggest this. A study/meditation of
the SD, does by the very nature of their being behind it (for want of better
words), give contact with the Masters. The SD is imbued with their essence.
There mind and spirit is alive in the secret doctrine.
And in another mail:
>What is the reason for the concept of brotherhood?
On the last page of the original and 2nd editions of the SD only, the first
object of the Theosophical Society is given as:
"I.To form the nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood of Man, without
distinction of race, colour, sex or creed."
One rendering of many of this is:
To form the nucleus (i.e. MANAS) of a Universal Brotherhood (i.e.
atma-buddhi are the universal principle(s)) of Man, without distinction of
race, colour, sex or creed (i.e. without distinction of the 4 lower
principles). Once the teachings fall into the area of the 4 lower
principles of "race," "colour," "sex," or "creed" they lose their pristine
purity. This is why it is so difficult to see how we can bring the Mahatmas
