Had you read carfully the past history of all of this business, you would have found that HPB had snubbed Subba Row's sensibilites regarding his feelings as a Brahmin. He thought that she was revealing far too much to the West. This is sectarianism at its best, where it decides who shall know what, even though the Mahatmas (essentially the Brotherhood out of which all sectarianist impulses had come throughout history) were completely behind The Secret Doctrine.

On 4 th January 1887 HPB wrote letter to Col. Olcott after Subba Raw
(S.R.) gave opinion about Proem of SD.
HPB writes " ........Let S.R. do what he likes. I give him carte
blanche. I trust in his wisdom far more than in mine, for I may have
misunderstood in many a point both Master and the Old G. (other Adept).
They give me facts only and rarely dictate in succession. I am no maker
of books you know it........"
It not only tells wisdom of SR but also tells that she did
misunderstand things which went into her writing.
Later when she sent draft of Secrete Doctrine to Subba Raw for
correcting mistakes. He went through it and told her that if he was to
correct it he would have to write whole book again.
