It is true and there is no argument that there is no "official" definition of "Theosophy." There is no offical definition because in Theosophical Studies there is no official "definitor." No one is ever authorized to proclaim "The Final Word" on Theosophy. 

This is because Theosophical Studies require individual Self-Reliance, Self Effort, and Self Responsibility. The karma of individual effort is required for each student to pierce the "veil of illusion." No one else can do this for you. There is No vicarious illumination, and no vicarious salvation. 

Illumination and Liberation are the result of individual effort. 

We can however join together as fellow students and learn certain things from each other that will help augment our ability to have "Aha" experiences, illuminations from the intuitional or buddhic dimension, which clarify our 
perception and understanding of certain points. 

Because there is no "official" definition of Theosophy however does not mean that there is no curriculum of information, this is a gross error and mis-perception. 

Serious students of Theosophy concur that Madame Blavatsky was the Messenger to communicate to the modern world certain esoteric teachings from a perennial Ancient Wisdom Tradition, and through her writings: The Secret Doctrine, Isis Unveiled, The Key to Theosophy, and The Mahama Letters to 
A.P. Sinnett, reveal that there is Wholeness, Order, and Purpose to the cosmos. That there IS a Divine Plan, and that we can come to know and understand it. 

To deny this is intellectual dis-honesty and egoic solipsism.
