Could the disciple be Sai Baba ??...

Hi all of you,
Now we have talked about 'proof' a while.
Some people needs 'proof' some people don't.
I still seek an answer to the question on the following from Blavatsky the theosophist :
"The same may be said of the whole Esoteric system. One turn of the key, and no more, was given in "Isis." Much more is explained in these volumes. In those days the writer hardly knew the language in which the work was written, and the disclosure of many things, freely spoken about now, was forbidden. In Century the Twentieth some disciple more informed, and far better fitted, may be sent by the Masters of Wisdom to give final and irrefutable proofs that there exists a Science called Gupta-Vidya; and that, like the once-mysterious sources of the Nile, the source of all religions and philosophies now known to the world has been for many ages forgotten and lost to men, but is at last found."
(The Secret Doctrine, vol.1, p.xxxviii)
1. Did that disciple come ?
2. Was or is that disciple Sathya Sai Baba from India ? (My most likely candidate. One can answer - yes, no, or maybe...etc.)
3. Was it someone else ?
I find these questions very very important to consider for any serious theosophist.
A more new and more modern presentation of theosophy could certainly show us all something of real value.
I know, that some don't like the word 'proof', but Blavatsky used it anyway.
Should it be important to teach the dead-letter view, which Blavatsky was so much against ? - I don't think so.
Should one not examine the different teachings - with words of wisdom just like Blavatsky did her self - quoting many a scholars and learned of her own time ?
Should we not do the same ? - I think so.
What i means is:
We have Depak Chopras, Sai Baba's, Mother Meera's, Radha Burnier's, etc...
What are they all doing those leaders and cocalled personalities of our present day ? What are they teaching ? Is it theosophy ? And what is theosophy anyway ?
It is to dare adress such issues, properly, that will make a serious seeker learn. But those who are afraid of losing face - don't dare debate on such issues - often because they are ignorant. Well that is at least a view.
But Blavatsky dared do it - and a lot of people learned by it, and still do.
But lets us keep - an open mind - let us at least do our best - to move moral upwards.
No answer is of course also an answer.
Feel free to do your best.
Sufilight with LOVE...and...experiences...
