"When Blavatsky and Masters founded TS, they did not found the TS with
the object "work for Christ". They had set three objects which are
different. Although all work is Christ's work, there are different
projects that work independently. Theosophy and World-Teacher project
are different. They should not be mixed."
This might not be entirely true. HPB did have a special messenger in
mind who would use the TS as avehicle to accomplish things even beyond
what had already been accomplished:
"If the present attempt, in the form of our Society, succeeds better
than its predecessors have done, then it will be in existence as an
organized, living and healthy body when the time comes for the effort
of the XXth century. The general condition of men's minds and hearts
will have been improved and purified by the spread of its teachings,
and, as I have said, their prejudices and dogmatic illusions will have
been, to some extent at least, removed. Not only so, but besides a
large and accessible literature ready to men's hands, the next impulse
will find a numerous and united body of people ready to welcome the
new torch-bearer of Truth. He will find the minds of men prepared for
his message, a language ready for him in which to clothe the new
truths he brings, an organization awaiting his arrival, which will
remove the merely mechanical, material obstacles and difficulties from
his path. Think how much one, to whom such an opportunity is given,
could accomplish" (Key, 306-307)
Besant, CWL interpreted this as applying to Krishnmaurti, with which I
concur. Meanwhile, as the WT project floundered, we have to look for
the 20th century effort as sponsored by the Masters.
