Yes, I think your statement is correct, I recall having read the same myself. in fact I wondered if HPB may have had contact with Ramalinga but I didnt pursue it. The same question floated up about the rest of the personages you mentioned. The world is undergoing a vast transformation and enablement's of ability to communicate with each and potentially all others. Almost daily we read of some new personal device that is premiered to the citizens of the world alongside the parellel developments of macro networks that facilitate enhanced means of creating new awareness of ourselves and others. perhaps the context of the WT that has been postulated will be found to utilize these recent enhancements such as the Internet which itself is presently moving to become it's next transformation and an order of magnitude ascent for mankind's ability to communicate. Communication is the fundamental action of the Being.

There are a few predictions about the World Teacher, some more detailed than others. Historically speaking, the Tamil saint Ramalinga Swami was the first person to predict not only about the coming of the World Teacher, but also about the formation of the TS which he described as an organization that would be formed by two foreigners and set up in Adyar for spreading brotherhood. He further added that from this organization would emerge the next WT who would spread this message all over the world. Though he stated this around 1850 it has been long ignored by both the TS and even the K foundations. Neither HPB, AB, or CWL were really the originators of the WT prophecy. May be they were not aware of the swami and did not know Tamil to realize the earlier prophecy.
Thankfully, Radha Burnier finally acknowledged this publicly a few years back. You know, there is nothing higher than truth, so what if it takes 150 years?!!
