Not only are most of them poorly written but they are full
of errors of fact mis-quotes incorrectly attributed quotes
confused explanations of teachings incorrect explanations of
teachings and terms incorrectly used. With the above in mind
I'm surprised that you even noticed an obsolete word. Speaking
of obsolete words I'm still waiting for a list of those words
from Eldon and Rich and from you if you have one.

The introductory course I mentioned has been available since
1990 through Quest Books in Wheaton Theosophical University
Press in Pasadena or through us. It is a 72 minute video with a
146 page study guide. The cost is $24.95 through us:

Nautilus Books
P.O. Box 2803
Turlock CA 95380

We also have another course under development and will make
general announcements when it is ready.
