A theosophist wrote:
In all the communications from the Masters, in the period 1880-8, they object to the use of the word "God", as a designation to describe the Ultimate Reality, the Root Cause, the Substratum, which is the basis of the universe and the Primary Cause of everything. Because, as can be seen everywhere, the word God at once connotes a Personal God, that is, a Creator, a Manipulator of the universe, who is imaged in a human form (though he may have many heads and arms as in Hindu images). Once the Ultimate Reality is so personalized, the next invariable result is to offer prayers to him, asking him for benefits or for exemption from the operation of his own laws.
