Re: Blavatsky Aryans vs. Nazi Arayans
Blavatsky's use of the term "Aryan" is a completely different thing than the Nazi's use of it and they get mixed up, and Blavatsky gets flak and ignorant prejudice for it. Blavatsky uses it in terms of large cycles of human types, the Asian Indians being the first "Aryans," the Jews and Negroes also being "Aryans" in her system. She writes on the Jews:
“The Aryan Hindu belongs to the oldest races now on earth; the Semite Hebrew to the latest. One is nearly one million years old; the other is a small sub-race some 8,000 years old and no more.” (Secret Doctrine, II, 470-71, Orig. Ed.)
