Iv been studying theosophy for some time now. Iv found that HPB uses
a somewhat enigmatic references. For example Toum - Tum / Atum among
other slightly off references . I am finding it harder to rely on the
accuracy of HPB books ie; secret doc and Isis Unv, when referencing
with more specific groups of study . The question is Might the
translations of her work be actual translations , is their actual
documented references ie; tablets pictures original text of the
lesser known specifics. And or Is their a possibility that the
inaccuracies of her work be intentional?

It is this students considered opinion that any book that deals with esoteric
meanings as well as exoteric meanings will in almost every case be filled
with "blinds" and the student is always left with that inevitable , "is it OR
isn't it" feeling., and that , to my mind, is a goad for the student to
"exercise" what they have been "seeing" but not necessarily "learning" and
after a certain point , only a "guide" will get you to where you want to
go.For example, our famous Mt. Everest climbing stories show that even the
most experienced climbers from other countries needed the sherpas of Tibet to
make the trip knowing from "experience" that WITHOUT them they were most
probably doomed to failure, even with all their great knowledge and
experience climbing mountains.
Such is the nature of realizing at some point that a Master or Guru is
actually NECESSARY in one's spiritual travels.A "thus far and no further"
feeling being a mysterious factor in all of it.
May we ALL get to Everest!!!
