I focus on your two sentences which read:
 "...I don't think there is sufficient accuracy in so called
 "....Mahatma's image is tarnished because of low quality of
Blavatsky's writing in so called Mahatma Letters....'
Anand, can you give some SPECIFIC and CONCRETE examples of this "low
quality" and "[in]sufficient accuracy" and why you judge these
examples AS SUCH?
I must say that you have this "habit" of seldom if ever giving any
details, specifics, etc. by which any of your statements can be
You may sometimes have a good point, etc. etc, but who knows since you
usually write in such vague and general terms.
Of course you can write as you so see fit but I would suggest that
some readers of your postings may have a tendency to disregard what
you say simply because you seldom ever give sufficient information,
etc. so that we can understand what you are getting at.
So 4 or 5 SPECIFIC, CONCRETE and DETAILED examples from the Mahatma
Letters would help.
Personally I have read and studied the Mahatma Letters since the early
1970s and have helped in a few ways George Linton and Virginia Hanson
with their 2nd ed. of THE READERS GUIDE TO THE MAHATMA LETTERS, also
Mrs. Hanson's MASTERS AND MEN and also supplied some input to the
editor of the Chronological edition of the MLs, and yet I still find
everytime I read the letters greater value and more insight contained
in these epistles from the Masters.
So I am somewhat puzzled by your comments about "low quality", etc....
Just take Letters 10, 22 and 134 (as numbered in the first three
editions of the letters), .... wow there is a world of meaning and
depth to be found in just these 3 letters. Whoever wrote these letters
not only had a command of the ideas presented but also knew how to
bring in just the right citations, references, that help to support
and elucidate the basic ideas presented. These 3 letters have high
quality material and ideas presented. And I could give more examples
of this. And in fact later when I have more time, I think I will do
that in a series of postings here.
