My answer is word authority is wrong. About Mars and Mercury, I am 
not interested in what chain they belong to. 
Danile, you wrote "Anand, I am trying to understand your point of 
view and thinking on this matter and how you are arriving at such 

Just now I typed following message for somebody else and it I think 
will tell how I arrive at conclusions. E-mail is-

As you know officially there is no authority in TS which tells this 
is right and that is wrong. Every member has to use his own 
intuition, intellect, judgment, knowledge, wisdom etc. After using it 
TS member arrives at a decision that these books and articles would 
be useful to people. And so he promotes it.
My personal policy is I use intuition, intellect, judgment, 
knowledge, wisdom etc. Then think which books will be useful to 
people. Also I recommend mostly books by writers who I think were 
actual disciples. I don't recommend books by mere intellectual 
interpreters who many times write books on spirituality just to earn 
royalty etc. But his judgment depends on personal judgment and 
spiritually and intellectually evolved person will have more accurate 
Best regards.
