No, Paul is not saying that the Masters are mythological in the
sense of imaginary. They are very real. But they are human
beings and their ability to walk on water and fly through the
air has been exaggerated. HPB writes about Jesus that whether
or not he was a real living person, his life instances were
mythologized in the Gospels. Much the same has been done
with Blavatsky's Masters. Our Theosophical literature has
mythologized them. But they were very real living human beings,
as Blavatsky says.
