KH: "those [letters] which are so copied have...become theosophical property.."
- In the summer of 1884, Mohini Chatterji and
Laura C. Holloway were writing a book on Theosophy
entitled "Man: Fragments of Forgotten History."
Both Mohini and Laura were chelas of Master
In a letter addressed to Mohini, Master K.H.
"You may, if you choose so, or find necessity
for it, use in Man [the above-mentioned book] or in any
other book you may chance to be collaborating for,
anything I may have said in relation to our secret
doctrines in any of my letters to Messrs. Hume or
Sinnett. Those portions that were private have
never been allowed by them to be copied by anyone;
and those which are so copied have by the very fact
become theosophical property. Besides, copies of
my letters at any rate those that contained my
teachings have always been sent by my order
to Damodar and Upasika [H.P.B.], and some of the
portions even used in 'The Theosophist.' You are
at liberty to even copy them verbatim and without
"Thus not only you, a chela of mine, but anyone
else is at liberty to take anything, whole pages,
if thought proper, from any of my "copied" letters
and convert their 'dross' into pure ore of gold,
provided they have well grasped the thought.
Show this to L.C.H. who was already told the
Letter 39 in "Letters from the Masters of the Wisdom,"
In the light of the above words from the Master K.H., would the
United Lodge of Theosophists be willing to offer classes using
Jinanrajadasa's "The Early Teachings of the Masters"? This
volume was compiled from those portions of the Masters' letters that
had become THEOSOPHICAL PROPERTY.
This volume is on the WWW at:
Would the United Lodge of Theosophists be willing to publicly
circulate/sell this volume by Jinarajadasa OR A SIMILARLY
COMPILED VOLUME OF THE LETTERS FROM THE MASTERS THAT HAVE
BECOME THEOSOPHICAL PROPERTY?
Since Dallas tells us that the ULT has no officers or leaders, then
who would make that decision? Would each lodge make that decision?
Food for thought...
