Food for Thougth
Does all-inclusive includes contradictory?
Can accuracy be compared with dogmatism?
Who can say what Theosophy is or what is not. Is it not allready said by the Masters, the Founders?
Really I do not know, maybe Truth itself can say, doesn´t It have It´s own Voice?
If there is no Religion higher than Truth, and Truth should not be a dogmatism it does not mean it should include Lie not to be dogmatic.
Wheré they not Messengers and Teachers, UNDERSTANDING TRUTH coming to teach us and teach us to make diference ourselfs betwing Truth and Lie. Who, who is not able to make diference betwen both can call himself a Theosophist. I do not know what is needed to be a Theosophist but usually if you go to any University you have to go througth exams to proof that one have understood certain basic knowellege in order to deserve your diploma.

Asunto: Theos-World What Books Should a Theosophical Society promote?

Should an "ideal", non-dogmatic, all-inclusive
Theosophical Society study and "promote" all
of the following books?

Books by Blavatsky, Sinnett, Judge, Besant,
Leadbeater, Tingley, G. de Purucker, Olcott,
Bailey, La Due, Ballard, Roerich,
Prophet, Chaney, Steiner, Hodson, King, Crosbie,
Wadia, Scott, Heindel, Innocente, Shearer, and
other "Theosophical" writers.

As well as books by various yogis, lamas,
metaphysicans, sufis, spirtualists, psychical reseachers,
kabalists, religionists, etc. etc. etc. etc.

I believe that almost all the named individuals
(in the 2nd paragraph above) have claimed contact with
the "Masters" and all their books could broadly be
called "theosophical" .

Who is to say what and what is not Theosophy or

And who is to say what or what is not to be studied
and promoted in a Theosophical Society or group?

It should be noted that the three major Theosophical organizations
(TS Adyar, TS Pasadena and ULT) all feature, study and promote (i.e.,
SELL) ONLY CERTAIN authors and writers.

Therefore are these three groups being "dogmatic" and in fact
promoting a "fundamentalistic" version of Theosophy by LIMITING
which authors are promoted and/or studied???
