Just a first impression, reading through it -- seems Madame Blavatsky was a difficult boss!An interview of HPB by Charles Johnston:
Interesting ... but I do wish Theosophy would desist from misquoting Origen (in misrepresenting him by reference to Contra Celsius I, 32 – he's talking about what the philosophical schools believe, and using their own logic against them, not what he believes.)The transcendental universe; six lectures on occult science, theosophy, and the Catholic faith
Is such absolute unity possible in nature? In the material world? Or is it the absolute antithesis of nature -- a spiritual perfection?The idea of Absolute Unity would be broken entirely in our conception had we not something concrete before our eyes to contain that Unity. And the deity, being absolute, must be omnipresent, hence not an atom but contains IT within itself. The roots, the trunk and its many branches are three distinct objects, yet they are one tree.

The teaching of the immortality yogas -- Taoist yoga and Kundalini yoga?As to the process of [self-will or] self-saturation, we have only to turn to the account of the priestly devotees of Japan, Siam, China, India, Thibet, and Egypt, as well as of European countries, to be satisfied of its reality. Long persistence in a fixed determination to subjugate matter, brings about a condition in which not only is one insensible to external impressions, but even death itself may be simulated, as we have already seen. The ecstatic so enormously reinforces his will-power, as to draw into himself, as into a vortex, the potencies resident in the astral light to supplement his own natural store.
