When spiritual/religious teaching is given, accuracy of statements,
Adepts don't consider accuracy always necessary. If you study
religions, you will find that in every religion there are some
statements which are improbable. 
 Even if Masters allowed Blavatsky and A.P. Sinnett to publish
inaccurate information, it was understood that nothing better could be
given to the world at that time. I don't think we can blame Masters
for allowing Blavatsky and Sinnett to publish inaccurate information.
 I think Masters knew that more accurate and better philosophy will be
given later through Mr. Leadbeater and Mrs. Annie Besant.
