June 2 2004 Dear friend Andre: Now that must have been a wonderful study through many expositions of THEOSOPHY . I wonder if you can keep all that information straight? I don't think I could, and so have read and re-read those and other books many times. To be specific. Please help me: I don't have THEOSOPHIST, VOL. 79, March 1958 (pp. 367-72) available to me just now. By any chance is it reproduced in the "Collected Works: BLAVATSKY, 15 Vols." ? [ see it in Vol 13, p. 301 ] I have found it: It is in CW:B Vol. XIII, p. 301... I see it is an unfinished essay and it is in two handwritings -- also on p. 302 in a footnote, it speaks of a missing page -- so there is some doubt as to whether it is entirely hers... So we don't know whether she would have retained the fragmentary version that is now available to us, if she had ever printed it in her magazines. For a number of years I have puzzled over the statements made as printed, and so far have not been able to make any definite reconciliation, such as you seem to seek. There are two methods of calculation apparent at least. And I have not specialized in the calculation of cycles and time-periods. I have asked myself if an application of the cycles of the Chaldeans: Naros, Saros, Sar had any relevance, did some calculations and arrived nowhere conclusive. One reason I gave to myself was that all decisions we make alter our own INDIVIDUAL and "Personal" cycles of incarnation. Apparently, we as individuals, work in and through those general cycles. Also I could not imagine to myself a particular use or value I might secure from a decision I might make in regard to those cycles of years. I agree that the differences are there but why? I am unable to help. I am sorry I am not able to help you further, But I think there are some possible correlates to the last paragraph of this document, see in S D I 164 and 170 and 200. (see also in Vol XIII, pp. 268, 324-5 -- again the exoteric and esoteric figures are mentioned in connection with the Zodiac.) Best wishes, Dallas Have a look at the following A THEOSOPHY CHRONOLOGY [Tentative} The Work of Adepts Note This is an attempt to place events and personages within various accepted and Theosophical time-frames. It is hoped that it will help in observing evidence of the Wise Men and Sage Adepts of the past at work. It will help the compilers if you would contribute any corrections or additions to this growing project, as a result of your own study and use of this list. _____________ Most time references are based on the periods that HPB has given us in either Isis or The S.D., or in her articles. This is under active completion and verification, hence, you will be asked to excuse some errors that will be found, and invited to draw the attention of the compilers to corrective facts. Verifying dates have occasionally been secured from Encyclopedia Britannica and other sources, and those have been added to those secured from Theosophical sources. If uncertain = c / ? .

Although i have read the following books since the last 2 years: Isis Unveiled 1 and 2 S.D. 1,2 and 3 Bhagavad Gita The Kabbala of Philo of Alexandria Man in Evolution The Four Sacred Seasons Wind of the Spirit To Light a Thousand Lamps The Path of the Mystic Expanding Horizons The Voice of the Silence H.P.

If i may, i have another question for you: H.P.B. states, that the firt races showed up some 300 million years ago. However, last week i read an article, which was originally published in The Theosophist Vol. LXXIX, March 1958, pp. 367-372, in which HPB makes calculations about the Rounds, Planets and Races, with completely different figures. It is about Cosmic cycles, Manvantaras and Rounds. Do you have an explanation with regard to these (big) differences. Many thanks in advance. Best regards, André Kollen
