I suppose theosophical circles differ, I have heard Radha 
Burnier wonder about Sai Baba, which to my mind gives the 
idea that she is open to what he might be. But in general 
theosophical students study less of the different new 
prophets than the second object suggests them to do. It is 
a pity. But I am myself an admirer of Sai Baba, and also 
part of some *theosophical circles*. ;-)
