Dear Daniel and all readers

This link and most of its questions need to be answered:
"...we have to preach and popularise a knowledge of theosophy."???

My views:
New teachers are needed. And the teaching needs to be clearly forwarded again, and again, so that there is no doubt about where the various groups are going astray, when they are going astray. This aught to be done taking time, place, people and circumstances into account. And this is where the skilled teacher is needed, so we all can help each other.

Yet I claim: The Masters have other work going on that most theosophist do not have an inkling of even today. (See - Mahatma Letters - no 47 - A.T. Barker)

Earliere in 2004 I wrote the following at Theos-talk....
Theosophical thought, Experience and Teaching"There is a vast accumulation of theosophical teachings, much of it inwritings, which would-be students plough through, looking fortheosophy (Wisdom of the Gods), and wondering why it seems,so often, self-contradictory. The simple answer is that this materialis largely time-and-culture-based. Most of it was prescribed forspecific audiences at certain times and under particular conditions.Choosing the relevant materials for any time is a specialised task.To try to make sense of all of it would be like taking a bundle ofmedical prescriptions, issued over the years to a variety of people,and working out one's own therapy from such largely irrelevantpapers - and without a certain specialised knowledge. TheosophicalTeaching is PRESCRIBED.Such parts of the theosophical Classics, stories, and lettersand lectures and so on which apply to the individual and the grouptoday - have to be selected and applied consciously and appropriately,by someone who is attuned to certain realities."

  Subject: Theos-World Power Structures & Theosophical Societies, Groups

  All of the existing Theosophical groups, societies
  and associations (Adyar, Pasadena, ULT, Arcane School, etc.)
  have current "power structures" - any of which may impede or obstruct 
  in one way or another a better understanding of Theosophical 
  teachings and history.

  Unfortunately, all of the various Theosophical Societies and
  groups have "mind-sets" which may "mislead" and "confuse"
  inquirers and new students to Theosophy.

  BELOW are some postings I have previously submitted to 
  Theos-Talk which may help interested inquirers and students
  gain a greater understanding of the Theosophical Movement
  as well as any one Theosophical Society or group.

  Should an "ideal" Theosophical Society study & "promote" these books?

  "...we have to preach and popularise a knowledge of theosophy."???
