"The Theosophical Society was organized for the purpose of promulgating the Theosophical doctrines, and for the promotion of the Theosophic life." (The Key to Theosophy, H. P. Blavatsky)

And of course not to promote an emotionally or intellectual oriented Messiah cult.

  Isn't it a bit hypocritical that some theosophists feel that JK abandoned theosophy, when it was categorically stated in the SD and the Mahatma Letters that organized religion is the root of all evil? Once you bring in a Messiah you are talking about an organized religion.

  refused to fund the travel expenses of a first rate
  lecturer who came to a group of branches to speak about K's
  philosophy. Some times you need to look at the actions to read the
  motivation of people.
