What?  Even the long diatribes against professor this or theological
that?  These are clearly Blavatsky speaking, and not HPB - a distinction
she acknowledged herself more than once.

I regret (genuinely) that I see in your post the same kind of worship of
a book as many fundamentalist Christians do with the Bible.

In saying it can take many years, decades, or whatever, I have to ask
how on earth can you be sure this is true.  Can you define what you
understand (not what the book says) by "An Initiate." ??
