Yes to both comments above. It has, though, reminded me that
"source teachings" received from (say) the Masters derive from
the teaching that they themselves received form their teachers,
who recevied it from theirs, and so on back through the
timelines. In the initiation I received via the Shankaracharya
school each guru was asked to assist, by name, going back, and
back, and back - a very long list of names of former holders of
this Himalayan office. There is still a living Shankaracharya,
just as there was when HPB mentioned him and his office.
