Important new book "en espanol"
The book is "H.P. Blavatsky: Alumnos,
Amigos-Enemies," Blavatsky Editorial
A.C. (Ma. Enriqueta Camarillo de Pereyra,
No. 45, Santa Maria la Ribera, Mexico,
D.F. 06400, MEXICO
8-1/2 x 11, 900 pp., paperback, 2006,
Translations by Jose Ramon Sordo, profusely
The title in English would be "H.P.

pp. to Judge.) I don't think there is
any thing along biographical lines similar
to this in English, or as comprehensive.
Any one who has read Jose Ramon
Sordo's writings in English will

he is an ideal person as a translator.
How much of the material is "new" or
translation I can't say. There are
also hundred of illustrations,
old photos, etc. It is an attractive
publication, and even with the 900pp, not
too big to be difficult for reading.
Blavatsky Editorial is in association
with Fundacio Blavatsky in Mexico, I
believe, perhaps its publishing arm.
Fundacion Blavatsky has an impressive
Perhaps someone who is Spainish-English
bilingual can give a better description
of this book than I can.
Among Spanish-speaking people would
seem to be a good place to work now
theosophically. With the growing Spanish
population in the US and Mexico, it seems
obvious that they are on an upward cycle
as a sub-racial group, and we're informed
in the literature that it is best to work
With Nature's cycles and take advantage
