My thought about your question is:
The Teaching given to us by The Brotherhood has not been effectively used.
There have been around, to many boomerangs of irritation and
non-recognition, between working individuals and Ashram-groups. This has
seriously harmed the work. And also; many of the Ashram-groups have not been
able to reach the physical plane, as was planned early in this century. The
war period was the delaying factor. As you know, the wars were, and are also
in the other worlds.
The presence of the Arhats with us is a matter of great importance.
It is my opinion that there are now in formation groups, that will be in fit
to cooperate and work together as will be needed in the coming decades.
These groups will have knowledge of the best, in esoteric studies.
These groups will not be authority bounded, like they are so many today.
We must realize that there is no perfect esoteric teaching available. And
that what is ahead will be more comprehensive than what has been given.
Let us therefore, "pick up knowledge as bees pick up honey."
Let us not waste energy and time in criticism and arguments. To reason and
analyze, that is a different matter.
I have a question in mind. How do you define the word Arhat.?
Definition of the word varies between writers.

Do you have some contacts in Russia.?
The Russians students of Theosophy would welcome cooperation with students
in other countries. They have actually been seeking for such cooperation.
Things have been made difficult for them, by groups pretending to be
Theosophists, trying to profit by asking for financial support.
The study group that I work with, has given support and co-operation to
groups in Russia. We have been planning a combined news-letter and a
study-list. The plan is to have that e-mail list in action, in the fall. It
will be Global and open for all.
PS. I will be in the upland most of the time in the summer. Therefore I may miss
