Understood thanks The interlinking of such efforts is most valuable to
all/ It validates the universality and impersonality of THEOSOPHY
We make ourselves responsible for pure and accurate transmission -- and
have to keep it so.

The Theosophical Academy was established for this very purpose. The
founders, after many years in study and contemplation of various
versions of theosophical writings, writers, organisations and
history, thought that these and other "original", unaltered works of
Madame Blavatsky, together with "The Mahatma Letters to A.P.
Sinnett", to be the most authentic and credible collective
representation of the Ancient Wisdom available to date.
It was also understood that the writers and inspirers of
these "original" works never intended them to be ends in themselves,
nor for them to be authoritative to the exclusion of free thought, as
did some later writers. It seems these works were the basis of newly
released information, coordinated in such a manner as to assist
humanity towards an altogether new way of thinking. Not simply in
terms of additional technical information but more in the form of a
new structure and process.
Perhaps the inestimable value of the "original" Theosophy of Madame
Blavatsky and the Mahatmas lies not only in the profound concepts
they elucidate, which can be "lifetimes changing" in themselves, but
in the manner in which their written form and structure can lead to
dramatically different ways of mind processing.
This free and "holistic" form of thinking is now more vital than ever
in our modern age where competition, singular authority and other
expressions of the separative mindset are so apparent.
With kind regards
