	As far as I know, one of the primary characteristics
of the "faculty of Buddhi" is acceptance.  This implies tolerance
and open-ness to new ideas.  "Core Theosophy" is a mental
construct, made of manas, perhaps with some buddhi-manas
insight, but manas nonetheless.  It serves well as a step
along the Path, but all theosophists should recognize that it
is but a step, and needs to be transcended some day. This
is exactly the function of Jnana Yoga.
