A few views...
This phamplet seems clearly to have a Sectarian content or perhaps rather a sectarian wording...
An Absolutely non-Sectarian Society would never release such a Phamplet unless some words have been omitted by you...or...am I mistaken..?
Because who decides whether the followng sentence is true ???:
"The major contribution of Madame Blavatsky was to bring into currency the 'metaphysical realism' and the workings on correspondences of the Cosmos, World and Individual."
The individual member of the Society or the "leaders" (so-called) of the Society who decided to issue the Phamplet???
Let us not forget the following was a part of the original programe in the early days of the Theosophical Society...
CONSTITUTION AND RULES OF THE THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY
The Theosophical Society is absolutely unsectarian"
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 doctrines being that advanced, or advocated by the Society.
Why did they write all these words into the Constitution of the Theosophical Society if they meant something else, with the objects of the Society and how to promulagte altruism, - and that, as much as 15 years after the beginning of the existence of the Society?
And why did they get deleted from the TS Consitution later on in the years after the year 1910?

Subject: theos-talk The Philosophy of Theosophy
The Indian Section Theosophical Society, in a pamphlet recently issued under the subject said the following:
" The philosophy of theosophy 'restores to the world the science of the Spirit.' It also 'illuminates the scriptures and doctrines
of the religions by unveiling their meanings, and thus justifying them at the bar of Intelligence, as they are ever justified in the eye of Intuition.'"
"The major contribution of Madame Blavatsky was to bring into currency the 'metaphysical realism' and the workings on correspondences of the Cosmos, World and Individual.
"The basic work of the Society is to aid the spiritual regeneration of the World by the regeneration of Individuals. The study it encourages must evoke awareness of the essential needs of humanity, and help to make it healthy morally, psychologically and spiritually.
What makes theosophy unique is its statement that it is only 'a restatement of the eternal verities' and therefore is nobody's exclusive property."
"Madame Blavatsky affirms that the earth will be a heaven in the 21st century in comparision with what it is now. It is for each one of us to see and make this a 'fact' rather than a mere ideal or a set-goal. Needless to say, the right understanding, both veral and practical, of theosophy alone will make this happen."
