Re: Theos-World "...we have to preach and popularise a knowledge of theosophy."

the Mahatmas selected HPB as their vehicle - they did not choose Leadbeater or Besant - she fulfilled her obligation by completing and publishing her writings for the world to judge for themselves- if their doctrine is the true doctrine then it must be consistent with the works of HPB. 
Are we not otherwise comparing the OT with the NT of the biblonians.

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.

Quoted from a letter from the Chohan
_http://www.theosoci http://www. theoshttp: //wwhttp: //www._ 
(http://www.theosoci /mahatma/ ml-choh.htm) 

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?
