Paul:<What if the lines laid down by the Masters and the original
teachings were "a hodge-podge of this and that?" Does that
ennoble hodge-podges or lower the dignity of the Masters and
Theosophy teaches material that can be found, here and there, scattered
throughout the world's religions, all tied together with some new materials.
How can it help from being "hodge-podge" in that sense? HPB quotes
Montaigne as saying "I have here made only a nosegay of culled flowers, and
have brought nothing of my own but the string that ties them" (SD, Vol I, p.
xivi). A "nosegay of culled flowers" is, in a sense, a hodge-podge.
However, the "string" that links them is the real key that theosophy offers.
