I don't think it takes a large group. most important things, it seems to be,
are carried on by an extremeley small body of dedicated people who are
willing to give all their time, resources, energies and hearts to the task.

After all, how large do we think the Masters' Brotherhood is? Hard to
estimate, I'm sure, but surely a very, very, very small percentage of the
world's population are Adepts, let along Mahatmas. Likewise, in each
tradition (every school of Buddhism, Hinduism, Theosophy, Judaism, etc.) very
few people take on the responsiblity of completely absorbing the entire body
of teachings and practices and dedicating their lives to practising,
preserving, and teaching them.

The few. The proud. [?!?!] The Theosophists. :)
