Ok, the very first thing we have to do is get rid of those obsolete ideas  of 
purity, self-denial, charity, etc and concentrate on finding what really is  
going on.

"For our doctrines to practically react on the so called moral code
or  the ideas of truthfulness, purity, self-denial, charity, etc., we
have to  preach and popularise a knowledge of theosophy."

Quoted from a letter  from the Chohan

So  exactly what do we preach and popularise?

Are there certain teachings  that constitute this "theosophy"? And if
so, what are these  teachings?

And where do we find these teachings?

And how do we  learn about them and study them so that in turn we
can "preach and  popularise" them?

And who is "we"? The leaders of the TS? Elected  officials of the
TS? Any member of the TS?

And remember there is  more than one TS or theosophical organization
or association.

Can  non-members preach and popularise this theosophy?

And in this same  letter, the Chohan tells  us:

The  doctrine we promulgate being the only true one, must, --
supported by such  evidence as we are preparing to give become
ultimately triumphant as every  other truth. Yet it is absolutely
necessary to inculcate it gradually  enforcing its theories,
unimpeachable facts for those who know, with direct  inferences
deducted from and corroborated by the evidence furnished by  modern
exact science.... Theos-sophia, Divine a synonym  of

This  is quite a CLAIM.

"The doctrine we promulgate being the only true  one...."

So what is this DOCTRINE that is "the ONLY true one" and where  can we
find an exposition of this teaching?

Is it to be found in THE  SECRET DOCTRINE written by H.P. Blavatsky?

Or can it be found in C.W.  Leadbeater's and Annie Besant's "Man,
Whence, How, and Whither: A Record of  Clairvoyant Investigation"W

Or in a book by Alice Bailey?  a book by Elizabeth Claire

If "we" are to popularise a  knowledge of Theosophy, what exactly do
we popularise?

Is  reincarnation part of this DOCTRINE?

What if I start popularising the  teaching of reincarnation that
includes the provision that humans can  sometimes be reborn as

Am I faithfully transmitting the  DOCTRINE?

And who is to say that I am faithfully or not transmitting  the

In other words, who is to say what the REAL, TRUE  "doctrine" is?

The objects of the TS doesn't tell us what the DOCTRINE  is all about,
so where and how does one [an inquirer, a newcomer] discover  what the
DOCTRINE is that the Chohan seems to hold in SUCH high  regard?
