In a letter dated July 8, 1881, Mahatma Koot Hoomi wrote to A.P 

...If, for generations we have "shut out the world from the Knowledge 
of our Knowledge," it is on account of its absolute unfitness; and 
if, notwithstanding proofs given, it still refuses yielding to 
evidence, then will we at the End of this cycle retire into solitude 
and our kingdom of silence once more. . . . 

...For countless generations hath the adept builded a fane of 
imperishable rocks, a giant's Tower of INFINITE THOUGHT, wherein the 
Titan dwelt, and will yet, if need be, dwell alone, emerging from it 
but at the end of every cycle, to invite the elect of mankind to co-
operate with him and help in his turn enlighten superstitious man. 
And we will go on in that periodical work of ours; we will not allow 
ourselves to be baffled in our philanthropic attempts until that day 
when the foundations of a new continent of thought are so firmly 
built that no amount of opposition and ignorant malice guided by the 
Brethren of the Shadow will be found to prevail. 

But until that day of final triumph someone has to be sacrificed -- 
though we accept but voluntary victims. The ungrateful task did lay 
her low and desolate in the ruins of misery, misapprehension, and 
isolation: but she will have her reward in the hereafter for we never 
were ungrateful. . . .
Quoted from:


H.P.Blavatsky in Volume I of The Secret Doctrine tells her readers:

". . .  the SECRET DOCTRINE is not a treatise, or a series of vague 
theories, but contains all that can be given out to the world in this 
century." The Secret Doctrine, 1888, Vol I, p. xxxviii (original 

But on the same page, H.P.B. also writes:

". . . But it will take centuries before MUCH MORE is given from it 
[the Secret Archaic Doctrine]. . . . " caps added


In another letter to A.P. Sinnett, Mahatma Koot Hoomi wrote about 
H.P.B. and her occult status and mission:

"This state of hers is intimately connected with her occult training 
in Tibet, and due to her being sent out alone into the world to 
gradually prepare the way for others. AFTER NEARLY A CENTURY OF 
FRUITLESS SEARCH, our chiefs had to avail themselves of the only 
opportunity to send out a European body. . . . "   The Mahatma 
Letters, 2nd edition, Letter 26.   caps added.


And in another letter from K.H., he told Sinnett:

"[H.P.B. is] ... a woman of most exceptional and wonderful 
endowments. Combined with them she had strong personal defects, but 
just as she was, there was no second to her living fit for this work. 
We sent her to America. . . . " The Mahatma Letters, 2nd edition, 
Letter 45.
