Problem with Blavatsky's writing??? Is this "problem" unique just
with her and her writings?
Anand, you now say:
"Problem with Blavatsky's writing is her students don't [know] what
she wants to say. Whether what she wants to say is right or wrong is
different question. That can be considered when you know what
Blavatsky wants to say. Funny thing about Blavatsky's writing is her
students are not sure what she wants to say, whether God exists or
not. I get different answers on these important issues from students
I find it somewhat hard to know what you are actually trying to
I will only speak for myself but I think I have a pretty good idea of
what Blavatsky is writing about when she speaks of "God".
In other words, I have taken the time and effort to read most if not
all of HPB's writings on "God". Now my understanding and
interpretation of Blavatsky may be somewhat faulty but that is not
Blavatsky's fault, is it?
So are you blaming Blavatsky for what her students understand or
Again is there a religious teacher or philosopher --- living or
dead --- whose students and followers ALL have the same understanding
of that teacher's writings or views?
Most teachers, most philosophers, most religious leaders, most
religions and most holy books have numerous followers and there are
DIFFERING interpretations and CONFLICTING understandings by the
followers of these philosophers, religious leaders, etc.
So I fail to understand why you are singling out Blavatsky.
OBTW, I have no clear idea of what your belief or idea is
about "God." Maybe that is my "fault" but I would say you have
provided us with very little on how you view "God".
Maybe you will start by trying to answer those 6 questions which you
can find through this link:
