Not at all.  Why should a Theravadinist know anything of Bodisattvas?
FYI, the doctrine of Arhats (Theravadin) and the doctrine of
Bodhisattvas (Mahayana) are from two different schools.

>(b) Ignored what is, after all, a basic tennet of even popular (Mahayana)

What is "popular" today was largely unknown in Crowley's day.
