Playing Scrabble--a Possible Tool For Researchers
Some time back I read a book about Madame Blavatsky and her Theosophy system and its social history--Madame Blavatsky's Baboon
, by Peter Washington.
When Michael Jones mentioned 'Kut-Hu-Mi'
I sat up, and thought that name sounded familiar,sounded like something from Blavatsky's system.
A Google search revealed that yes, there was
a Blavatskyian equivalent--Hoot Koomi.
--the name of the Ascended Master who is supposed to be the source from which Blavatsky channeled her material.
I entertained myself by playing Scrabble with the name.
All that was done was to change the double 'oo' to 'u' and to switch the places of 'K' and 'H'.
mi' and then 'Hut Kumi' to
Then, just add a Chinese style hyphen--'Kut Hu-Mi'
Late Nineteenth Century Theosophy formed a very rich mine of material. . It gained attention from many respectable persons in the 1920s, especially Aldous Huxley. It produced a legion of variant systems.
Here is a google search for 'theosophical dictionary'. There are at least a couple of online dictionaries/glossaries.
I would suggest for those interested that you read through and skim the names of all the theosophical terms and make a list of the ones that resemble items from AMORC.
Spelling may differ between Blavatsky's/Besants/Bailey's system and that of AMORC (eg Koot-Hoomi
(Blavatsky) and Kut-Hu-Mi
Have a look at this:
Koot-Hoomi: Spiritual - Theosophy Dictionary on Master, Masters
Master, Masters Adopted in theosophical literature to designate those human beings further progressed on the evolutionary pathway than the general run of humanity, from which are drawn the saviors of humanity and the founders of the world-religions.
These great human beings (also known by the Sanskrit term mahatma, "great self") are the representatives in our day of a brotherhood of immemorial antiquity running back into the very dawn of historic time, and for ages beyond it.
It is a self-perpetuating brotherhood formed of individuals who, however much they may differ among themselves in evolution, have all attained mahatmaship, and whose lofty purposes comprise among other things the constant aiding in the regeneration of humanity, its spiritual and intellectual as well as psychic guidance, and in general the working of the best spiritual, intellectual, psychic, and moral good to mankind. From time to time members from their ranks, or their disciples, enter the outside world publicly in order to inspire mankind with their teachings.
Two of Blavatsky's teachers became publicly known under the names of Master M (Morya) and Master KH (Koot Hoomi
). Some of their correspondence with one of Blavatsky's earlier theosophical helpers has been published as The Mahatma Letters to A. P. Sinnett.

Koot-Hoomi: Mysticism Magick Dictionary on KOOT HOOMI
One of the Chohan entities, initiates or "secret chiefs" contacted by HPB and Alice Bailey. Koot Hoomi is responsible for the creation of Theosophy.
Note for researchers. I once was looking up an Indian guru (deceased) by the name of 'Ramsuratkumar'. It turned out that varient spellings on this same person is 'Ram Surat Kumar' or 'Ramsurat Kumar'.
