Be careful. HPB said on the title page that the SD was a synthesis
and reiterated that statement in the body of the book and made it
clear in the way the book was written that it as a synthesis and
Theosopists violently contend that it is NOT a synthesis. One fellow
told me he has a hard time with non-Theosophists who point straight
at the word on the title page and ask him how he can steadfastly
contend that the book is not a synthesis. A Theosophistr in England
went so far as to deny that any of the quotes in the book are really
quotes. That does not fit into his belief system somehow. That
naughty word on the title page is a hot button issue for
Theosophiucal Fundamentalists and none of the rest of us have a clue
as to why. It is interesting how people can aggressively filter out
plain facts of which they wish to be unawate.
