Yes H.P.B. acknowledges that she was the agent or deputy of a MASTER OF WISDOM. She also indicated that the original Theosophical Literature was the combined gift of a number of such ADEPTS --but she was closely allied to the work of two of them who had the general welfare of humanity at heart.
And those THREE ( for in one of Their letters They claimed her as Their colleague ) we may see the manifestation ofthose primeval archetypes from which all of our terrestrial wisdom springs
She also acknowledged her particular Master who gave her the drop of “essence” that opened the eyes of the person named Helena Petrovna Blavatsky so that she became (at least to us) H.P.B.
She gives an account of these things in that series of letters of hers, printed in THE PATH (after her death) by Mr. Judge (Vols. 8, 9, 10) and recently reprinted.
But more than that, she indicated that we all have a “Master” innate in us. [ See TRANSACTIONS ( pp 66-76; and BCW Vol. X pp 252-263)
In manifestation, the MONAD of each human being consists of the imperishable combination of ATMA (Spirit Universal--a “ray” thereof), BUDDHI (the accumulated Wisdom ofthe ages through which, that Monad has lived and experienced life -- and through which it can contact every other Monad in the Universe, and secure from them their individual experience), and MANAS -- the One impartial and imperishable RAY which emanates from the ABSOLUTENESS that is the “background of All -- AND WHICH IS ABLE TO PERCEIVE the interaction not only at all levels of ATMA and BUDDHI, but gives each “Human Monad” its independence and its “Power to Choose.”
So we have the Individual Master innate to ourselves, and the Master who is our friendand Guide on the rocky Path to Perfection. [One who has already reached Perfection and who has chosen to remainto help humanity work to achieve to this elevation that is within the reach of all.]
In each incarnation self-effort purifies the pathway so that the “External Master” may assist the internal one to illuminate the embodied and aspiring mind of a self-purified personality.
