You wouldn't want to be at the receiving end of racist rumours either.

The First men were Chhayas (1) ; the second, the "Sweat-born" (2), the Third, "Egg-born," and the holy Fathers born by the power of Kriyasakti (3); the Fourth were the children of the Padmapani (Chenresi) (4).

The MONADS of the lowest specimens of humanity (the "narrow-brained"* savage South-Sea Islander, the African, the Australian)

Here the inferior Races, of which there are still some analogues left -- as the Australians (now fast dying out) and some African and Oceanic tribes -- are meant. "They were not ready" signifies that the Karmic development of these Monads had not yet fitted them to occupy the forms of men destined for incarnation in higher intellectual Races. But this is explained later on.

Fourth Race were the children of Padmapani, may find its explanation in a certain letter from the Inspirer of "Esoteric Buddhism" quoted on p. 68. "The majority of mankind belongs to the seventh sub-race of the Fourth Root-Race -- the above-mentioned Chinamen and their off-shoots and branchlets. (Malayans, Mongolians, Tibetans, Hungarians, Finns, and even the Esquimaux are all remnants of this last offshoot.)"

I miss having a theosophical bookshop in town. They always provided such an excellent service providing books from various beliefs.
Never read Blavatsky though
And of course I hate this "Higher intellectual Races" ...“Inferior race” B-S*.

I was interested in what people who know more about Theosophy have to say about it.

Why not 'go to the horse's mouth' and do some research? That way you'll find out for yourself..... https://theosophicalsociety.org.uk/

I must admit that I have but a passing interest in Theosophy. However, I am glad to see that people are keeping the knowledge alive. The New Age community of today seems to have forgotten this part of their past for the most part.

The following are the few other souces I know for books and collections on Theosophy, besides what has been presented in this thread. I can't speak for what authors are best to read and which to avoid, only that these links simply provide a plethora of books and articles to peruse

Internet Sacred Text Archive
https://www.sacred-texts.com/the/index.htm

Internet Archive (sorted by creator)

I thought by going to the Theosophy section on Spiritual Forums, I was going to the horse's mouth, because the Theosophists on the forum would be here.

Thanks to everyone for the links, though.

Normally yes, but with virus rules now?? Call the phone number and see if they will open up for you.
