Re: Theos-World Pablo AND Frank on discrepancies between Purucker & Blavatsky

Pablo, you have understood my position well.

The teachings from Besant and Leadbeater that differ from HPB, are wrong as they are a human mind creation and are in conflict with the original teachings of the Dzyan school.
The teachings of Purucker that differ from HPB, are right, as they are no human mind creation, but come from the same source, the Dzyan school.
Purucker's teachings have the proof in it, because by logic combined with intuition they proof themselves.
I find it very much intelligent.

Otherwise, it could be that we have also a different interpretation of the term "intelligent".

I just want to say I don't "reject all teachings which are not 
expressed in "The Secret Doctrine" I think that's clear enough. I'm 
just saying: You say AB and Leadbeater said different things from 
HPB's teachings. So GdeP did. But of course, in the former case it is 
pseudo theosophy, in the latter a deepening of it. That is what I 
find "non-intelligent".
