Good quote, Daniel.
Here is an addition:

"The value of the educational institution at Point
Loma lies in the fact that it has proved the truth
of its theories by its success. It has
accomplished the mission which brought it into
being. It has rescued Theosophy from the domain of
an intellectualism which might easily have become
more selfish, because more subtle, than the
current thought of the world."
- Katherine Tingley: Theosophy, the Path of the
Mystic, first ed. 1922, ch. VII, p. 183

These and other paragraphs have been forgotten in
later editions, including the TUP online edition

Theosophy... more selfish... than the current
thought of the world TODAY?

Theosophical organizations today below the

Are they shameful rather to the recipients?

Today a German newspaper published for the first 
time fragments of the missing new bible which the 
Leader Hitler ordered around 1938 the Protestant 
church to publish, coming back to its spiritual 
values and corrected from its many "improvements" 
over the centuries. It included a new translation 
of the commandments, which number to 12.

Where are today the spiritual warriors - a term KT
often used - who fight for pukka Theosophy?

Master Koot Hoomi wrote to A.P. Sinnett:

"I dread the appearance in print of our philosophy
as expounded by
Mr. H[ume]. I read his three essays or chapters on
God (?) cosmogony
and glimpses of the origin of things in general,
and had to cross out
nearly all. He makes of us Agnostics!! We do not
believe in God
because so far, we have no proof, etc. This is
ridiculous: if he publishes what I read, I will
have H.P.B. or Djual
Khool deny the whole thing; as I cannot permit our
sacred philosophy
to be so disfigured. He says that people will not
accept the whole
truth; that unless we humour them with a hope that
there may be
a 'loving Father and creator of all in heaven' our
philosophy will be
rejected a priori. In such a case the less such
idiots hear of our
doctrines the better for both. If they do not want
the whole truth
and nothing but the truth, they are welcome. But
never will they
find us-- (at any rate) -- compromising with, and
pandering to public
