Q. Theosophists have talked about different groups of masters existing physically or even non-physically.
Spiritual knowledge has many difficulties in order to exist. The first difficulty is that it cannot be expressed adequately.
So even when someone comes to know, he is not able to express it exactly. What has been known cannot be transferred easily. Someone knows something, there are seekers who want to know, but the knowledge cannot be communicated. Just because you want to know it and just because someone is capable of telling you does not mean that communication is possible. The very nature of spiritual knowledge is such that the moment you try to express it, you feel that it cannot be expressed. So to express it and communicate it, esoteric groups are needed.
