well, to give you a whole truth answer, you should ask me afte rmy return
In the meantime in is the result of my 20 years study of Blavatsky I am
coming to the conclusion is that Theosophy in general is not a finished
work, is is ever becoming.
So it is not recommended on any occult topic to stop thinking, to stop
research and claim: I have the whole.
As we have contradicting statements from HPB and her teachers it can also be
that a figure here and then is exactly, who knows?
One should decide it not before one has reached the same level of knowledge
and must not erect dogmas of the own mindset before.
Breaking the moulds of minds - was HPB'S motto.
We are as students always in danger to come to incorrect conclusions, we
should avoid fanatical conclusions and not forget, that we are just
beginners and not experts.
That mindset it is what I have to reject on Besant - not, that she has tried
to proof and find out for herself. But that she errected dogmas and became
fanatical - which is always typical for convertites - and poses even as a
teacher, while she was only an expulsed recorder of the teachings and Joint
Outer Head on probation. not fixed.
When she re-opened an E.S. of her own in 1897 she considered not the
warnings of HPB that a fallen chela errs and forgets the teachings (probably
not all the information, but the keys, the common overwie, the higher
understanding). But obviously a fallen chela whose mind is confused may not
remember the warnings, whose oversights resulted in the fall.
OTOH, a fallen chela is not to be blamed, as he/she has tried. Much worse
are the cases, were people do not try.
With her fanatical style of spreading half-true, more exoteric versions of
what she has heard, Besant provoked the counter reaction, which forced the
Masters via Tingley for counter propaganda, which resulted in much quarrels.
But the quarrels were also healsome for the Movements, otherwise it had died
So in answering your question I have always felt, that no theosophical
lineage has the whole. Each author hands down information, which no other
has, and only a comparision all teachings and traditions and not their
suppression can lead to progress.

Are you saying that 1) as EXACT figures are not given out, and 2) as
some figures were given, therefore 3) non of the figures given are exact?
If so, any use of figures derived from HPB's work will generate

Ok, there must be always somebody, who plays the role of the bad cop.
