Dear Anand

My views are:

Is the below words by Annie Besant, what you call theosophical teaching?
So you think that LOGOS is a male like Annie Besant?
We theosophist are not agreeing upon this.

Annie Besant wrote:
"We have learned that the matter in a solar system exists in seven great modifications, [1] or planes; on three of these, the physical, emotional (astral), and mental­ - often spoken of as "the three worlds", the well-known Triloki, or Tribhuvanam, of  the Hindu cosmogony - is proceeding the normal evolution of humanity. On the next two planes, the spiritual - those of wisdom and power, the buddhic and the atmic - goes on the specific evolution of the Initiate, after the first of the Great Initiations. These five planes form the field of the evolution of consciousness, until the human merges in the divine. The two planes beyond the five represent the sphere of divine activity, encircling and enveloping all, out of which pour forth all the divine energies which vivify and sustain the whole system. They are at present entirely beyond our knowledge, and the few hints that have been given regarding them probably convey as much information as our limited capacity is able to grasp. We are taught that they are the planes of divine Consciousness, wherein the LOGOS, or the divine Trinity of Logoi, is manifested, and wherefrom He shines forth as the Creator, the Preserver, the [2] Dissolver, evolving a universe, maintaining it during its life-period, withdrawing it into Himself at its ending.

  How God created world can be read in the Study of Consciousness by
  Annie Besant. Christianity, like other religions, does not give
  knowledge of all the laws of nature. All religions give only few
  important principles, generally related to character building, and
  about God. Theosophy has given knowledge on many different topics
  which you mentioned above. Some of the above topics you can find in
  Christianity under different terminology.
