Theosophical Traditions & New Students of Theosophy

There are at least a dozen different Theosophical "traditions" or "schools" based on the claims of various prominent individuals in the modern Theosophical Movement.
H.P. Blavatsky (1831-1891) was the first person in modern times to write about the Theosophical Adepts, especially the Masters Morya and Koot Hoomi.
Madame Blavatsky wrote:

" "The Theosophical Mahatmas." The Path, December, 1886.

reader's thinking for him, nor would the latter be any the
better off if such vicarious thought were possible..."
