But Eldon is right that there are indeed differences, not "only
agreements." There is a formalized bureaucracy in AAB's occult
schemes, with the Manu, Mahachohan, Maitreya, etc. having roles
that define their place in the hierarchy of the world. HPB has
no such bureaucracy in her view of the cosmos, no carriers of
titles, only individual adepts striving to uplift humanity and
working with others as they can.
