H.P. Blavatsky on the Kumaras

I give BELOW (1) a simple definition of Kumara as given by H.P.B. and
also the Kumara entries in (2) the index to THE SECRET DOCTRINE and 
(3) the index to HPB's 14 COLLECTED WRITINGS volumes.

I would think that the interested reader and student could spend a 
CONSIDERABLE amount of time just reading and studying what H.P.B. has 
written on this one subject!!! 

H.P.B. also gives teachings on the Kumaras in her INNER GROUP 
TEACHINGS.  See index to 2nd edition.   

<Below is the KUMARA entry in Glossary to KEY TO THEOSOPHY, 1890 ed.>

Kumara (Sans.) A virgin boy or young celibate. The first Kumaras are 
the seven sons of Brahma, born out of the limbs of the god in the so-
called Ninth Creation. It is stated that the name was given to them 
owing to their formal refusal to "procreate" their species, and thus 
they "remained Yogis" according to the legend.
