One thing I am still noy clear on is how the teacup could have been
placed in the ground a day or two earlier by someone from the temple
without the ground being disturbed when the cup was dug out and with
roots growing densely all around the cup and saucer. If a "brother"
from the Tibetan temple was responsible, and not Blavstsky, as the
story seems to suggest, then it makes sense that Blavatsky would have
had to lead everyone to a spot at which it would have been convenient
for him to deposit the thing.
OK, I don't know what the exact terrain was. But, if one digs in at an
angle to the roots, one can push them aside, put in the teacup, then
refill the hole with dirt, making it appear that the roots grew around
the teacup. Since the entry hole may be a couple of feet from where the
teacup was found, it is likely that it wasn't noticed, especially if it
were covered by a rock and moss.
