I am not denying that the Adepts believe that they represent the One
True Philosophy(tm) (though even they do not claim to know the whole of
it). What I AM denying is the representation that the Mahatma Letters
are themselves the One True Philoosphy(tm), or that they all represent
it, as is being claimed is a basic belief of Theosophists. There is a
VERY important difference.
