Here is a msg from a member who has difficulty in posting. I am posting it
on his behalf

It is true that many of the teachings of HPB came into 'open' very long
after they were made. The papers like the Original Programme, Diagram of
Meditation, How to study the Secret Doctrine stand clear examples of that.

Now, the point is to: Popularize the teaching to the masses (public).
Digitizing the texts is one thing. It should not be forgotten that the
theosophical movement is aimed at the 'intellectuals' to make them learn
and work for the masses. Saying that the knowledge about Globes, Rounds and
Chains, Root-races, Sub-races and Family-races is all 'verbose', requiring
no immediate concern has become a 'fashion'. Theosophy should be made
'practical - another adage is frequently used. How does one 'describe' or
'elaborate' the methodology one has to adopt or emulate?
"Living Theosophy" is what HPB indicated to the members, among others, as
to how they could help the Society (Key to Theosophy). Is there a more
royal way besides the members studying their Texts, assimilating the
Teaching and setting an example in Living (without a proclamation or pride
that they are doing this)? Talking and writing on the knowledge of
Theosophy is also an equal task, if not more! What is the Action Plan?
