Hello Barbara,

We find ourselves making the same comments about HPB's writings. Sometime we run into people who are into some new age thing and start telling us about the latest books, with great ideas they have never heard before. In almost every case, it is some simplified and distorted version of something that HPB had written about over a hundred years ago. There is nothing quite like her, and she seems to be the direct or indirect source for so many current ideas.
While we have study groups on Theosophical texts (e.g. Secret Doctrine, Mahatma Letters, Voice etc.), We also do classes where we explore subjects HPB covers by using current works. We have found that these studies tremendously expands, clarifies and brings a whole new relevance and currency to HPB's writings. We just finished a two year course on Kaballah, which started with the roots of Judaism in Egyptian, Babylonian and Canaanite religions. Currently we are doing a course on the roots and origins of Christianity. I'll be happy to email you and/or anyone interested a copy of our syllabus for this current class.

Hi Jerry,
I have always read and enjoyed your posts. They are both thought provocative and insightful. In regards to your recent thread with Dallas, I just want to say that, perhaps some TS students, like myself, have never found any teachings that come remotely close, in terms of profundity, to the TS, which is why we have not gone outside. After studying HPB, everything looks pale. HPB writings have so many layers, that readers can continually peel layer after layer. If you have found any teachers or books that you think have the same level of depth, I would appreciate it if you could share them with us. I do share your concern about theosophy in the Post Modern Generation.
