too much about what may or may not be mistakes. Yet to acknowledge the
possibility of these can have its rightful place and provide food for

Peter, this is an excellent point. And I certainly do not want my little
investigations into Theosophy and Tibetan Buddhism to distract from discussion
of Theosophy *per se*. I'm also not terribly interested in "mistakes"
(whatever may be the perception of my writings in this list) but I am *very*
interested in all the little tidbits and hints that HPB gives us about ancient
Aryan teachings, Vedanta, and "inner Buddhism" -- and I find it fascinating
and personally valuable to track them down, and see what HPB says compared to
what these groups say about themselves. However, I'm not looking to
antagonize people, or set myself up as an enemy of my Guru. So your post is
helpful in getting me to see the effect of my posts on other readers, and I
thank you for that.
