Hi Brigitte and all of you,

A view among many:
The below is certainly interesting.

But I will also have to say, that the below text can be taken from
the ancient "Puranas" by any serious spiritual reader of sanskrit.
And a translation to english most likely will follow that of Randolph and Blavatky, when talking about the below and similarities.
Don't you agree with me on that Brigitte ? 
(I don't have the books in my possesion, so maybe another on Theos-talk will be able to refer to the relevant pages, if it is nescessary for you to know them...)

I agree, that Blavatsky to a certain extent borrowed from the present day terminology, - especially because she was quoting so much from other writersbooks etc. 
The great thing about the book The Secret Doctrine, by Blavatsky - is according to me, that Blavatsky made a book which look strange and clumsy if youread with "dead-letter-view", like near all scentist do these days. But ifyou read with spiritual understand, using "the 7 keys" then the book is wonderful - and spiritual enlightening, - well at least to some. And that is good.

There you see the genius of Blavatsky as a bookwriter. But some don't see it because, they read with "dead-letter-view".

Theosophy is more concerned with MORAL - than with whether it copies from other writers to a certain extent.

The wise gets more from the books than schoolars do.

Sufilight with translations....
