"H.P. Blavatsky always assumed Arya meant white as in 'white' race. "

Bhakti Ananda Goswami writes:

"H.P. Blavatsky always assumed Arya meant white as in 'white' race. 
What difference does it make if she used the term 'white or the 
term 'Aryan,' when to her they meant the same thing? Whether they are 
called the Aryan or White Brotherhood or Aryan or White Ascended 
Masters or 'Mastered Beings' (currently popular New Age term) makes 
no difference if Arayan means white race. The whole root races idea 
is based on the erroneous premise that Arya in the Sanskrit 
literatures means 'white race.'"
Quoted from:

In the above statement, Goswami does NOT give any references to HPB's 
writings where we could find support for his statements.

As regards Goswami's reference to "Aryan or White Brotherhood or 
Aryan or White Ascended Masters", where in HPB's writings does she 
use these terms?

I also append BELOW all the entries from THE SECRET DOCTRINE under 
the term "Aryan(s) Race."
