Martin, I think you've made many important points above. *Especially
What is most important is to understand and assimilate these great ideas
of Theosophy behind the words.
Today we have so much Blavatsky and Blavatsky related material in print

Serious students should seek out good material from whatever publisher.
For example, are ULT associates and other Blavatsky students aware of
the Blavatsky series put out by Point Loma Publicatons, Inc., San Diego?
I'm referring to the series compiled and edited by H. J. Spirenburg.
THE NEW TESTAMENT COMMENTARIES OF H.P. BLAVATSKY
THE VEDA COMMENTARIES OF H.P. BLAVATSKY
H. P BLAVATSKY ON THE GNOSTICS
THE BUDDHISM OF H.P. BLAVATSKY
THE VEDANTA COMMENTARIES OF H.P. BLAVATSKY

Wonderful volumes very very helpful to Blavatsy and Theosophical
Many more examples could be given.
