Theosophy a Received Truth

Christianity was "received" from Jesus, who "received" it from God. Buddhism was "received" from Buddha who "received" it from his spiritual lineage of buddhas. Taoism was "received" from Lao Tao, and so on. Modern Theosophy (cap T as opposed to the ancient theosophy with a small t, of which modern Theosophy is a subset, which was only "received" in pieces by different people and is still largely "occult") was "received" from H. P. Blavatsky who "received" it from her Masters. This seems pretty clear cut to me, and I think Tillet is correct. The idea of having a received truth is why lineages are so important.
