To Perry: So what do you think of the book "Man: Son of Man"?

I'm curious.

What do you think of the book:

Man, Son of Man, In the Stanzas of Dzyan
by Sri Madhava Ashish. ??

Your mentioning of this book brings back
fond memories of the early 1970s when I
wrote to Geoffrey Barborka about Ashish's

I remember Mr. Barborka writing back dozens
of single spaced pages of commentaries!  Quite
a treat....

If I remember correctly Ashish contended the
root races were NOT to be taken literally.

In other words, there were NO Atlantean giants....

I also remember Mr. Barborka writing to me and quoting from an early
letter from Master KH:

"The vril of the 'Coming Race' was the common property of races now 
extinct. And, as the very existence of those gigantic ancestors of 
ours is now questioned -- though in the Himavats, on the very 
territory belonging to you we have a cave full of the skeletons of 
these giants -- and their huge frames when found are invariably 
regarded as isolated freaks of nature, so the vril or Akas -- as we 
call it -- is looked upon as an impossibility, a myth."
