Good that you posted the above quote.
In the presence of all dazzling details of anthropogenesis and
cosmogenesis and all the song and dance added on, may be we should repost
the above frequently because, the real fundamental objective as seen by
the Founders should never be lost sight of. It is like the north star by
which a sailor navigates safely to the destination.
When I see some of the "theosophical" publications with a high level of
fog index, and the talk by some about the "hidden" objects of TS, one
wonders whether the waning interest as shown by membership numbers may be
due to our forgetting the main objective.
Sinnett was repeatedly told by the Founders that "The Chiefs want a
Universal Brotherhood (sisterhood)". Apparently the problem of
focus/object existed then as it seems to exist today.
