But, which - objects - of the Theosophical Society are we talking about?

Those given in 1875, or those given by the co-founder Blavatsky in 1886, or those given Jan. 1891 in the Theosophist, or those given in 1908, or those given in 2010? And given by whom? And why choose one and not another?

I for one will oppose the following articles being thrown out in such an attempt - just - because of doctrinaire bias...

1. Any Fellow who shall in any way attempt to involve the Society In political disputes shall be immediately expelled.

2. No Fellow, Officer, or Council of the Theosophical Society, or of any Section or Branch thereof, shall promulgate or maintain any doctrinas being that advanced, or advocated by the Society. "
(The Constitution and Rules of the Theosophical Society given in 1891)

About the list.
I was also referring to other papers/letters by Alice A. Bailey, and other papers and letters by Helena Roerich etc. etc. --- Not that I endorse promoting politics like a number of the Alice A. Bailey followers often seem to do.

What about those very old texts like the Upanishads or those by Shankara and Tsong Khapa, or later Panchen Lama's etc. etc.- Which versions are the proper ones to make available? Or none at all.

And what about Psychological texts?

I can see that this website seem to be expanding:

  I think that those publication are theosophical, which comply the objects of the Theosophical Society.

  I don't know about the latter, while other two are online for a long time already.
