In Memory of Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke

I was deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of my doctoral advisor and a dear mentor Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke. Prof. Goodrick-Clarke was a solid academic who helped turn the study of Western Esoteric history into an accepted academic discipline. He paved the way for the future study of this discipline organizing the MA conferences at Exeter and they were always first rate. 

Nicholas' writings on the early Theosophical Society and his research on various Western Esoteric…

November 17 - Theosophical Society Founders' Day

Theosophists world over remember November 17th the day Theosophical Society was founded in NY in 1875. On this day, theosophists remember the contributions of the Founders - HPB and HSO, the fruits of their labor many have enjoyed. Anyone who has been touched by theosophical tenets would vouch that their outlook on life and those of the fellow men and women have dramatically changed for ever. As one of the Inner Founders said “Ingratitude is not one of our vices,”, let us remember our…

Theosophy in Greece Under Nazism

Dear friends,


As we approach to the celebration of the end of Second World War, at May 8 of 1945, we continue our investigation on the theosophical movement during those dark years.


We have just published a new text in our website about the moving testimony of a Greek theosophist during the Nazi occupation.


The text follows below.


Best regards, Joaquim

"A Masterpiece of Editorial Forgery " in Greek

Dear friends,


We have published in our websites a series of articles denouncing the falsehoods contained in the volume I of “Letters of H.P. Blavatsky”.


One of those articles, maybe one of the most impressive, has just been translated into Greek language.

A Masterpiece of Editorial Forgery


With this new translation, made by a long time student…

Joseph Ross' books on Krotona

Joseph Ross’ books on Krotona

Sometimes, reading historical material gives a better perspective of TS.

Some take a simplistic view of TS as another world-wide worldly organization

like the various business and political organizations were are all familiar

with. Considering the unusual origin of TS and how and why it was launched

and the intense on-hands Adeptic guidance of TS in the early days, it makes

one think and possibly meditate.

Much of the… Continue

New and Serious Problem Adyar is confronting

Dear Friends,

I just learnt about a new and serious problem Adyar is confronting. Here are the full details.


The Tamil Nadu State Government is planning to build a 47 km elevated express way which will include parts of the Chennai coastline. The first studies show that around 14 fishing communities (kuppams) and over 560 families will be affected by the project. The proposed route includes the Adyar beach near the Theosophical Society's compound. The entire… Continue

Krishnamurti's comments on Adyar

Krishnamurti’s Comments on Adyar

On Jan 7, 1924, Jiddu Krishnamurti wrote to the members of TS:


It is essential for the individual member and for the Society that Adyar, as

a great spiritual center, should be maintained worthy and dignified. The

importance of this is so obvious that few can doubt it. Adyar is and always

has been, a spiritual oasis to which the weary traveller looks for comfort

and repose. Though it may not be the previlege of… Continue

When the Spirit Doesn't Move You

Richard Ihle

When the Spirit Doesn't Move You

“Incidentally,” said old J.W. von Goethe, “I despise everything which merely instructs me without increasing or immediately enlivening my activity.”

And now, of course, the only thing which is likely to enliven Theosophy, its organizations and individuals, may be a radical shift toward Theosophical psychology. Like old Goethe, many modern people may have little time and/or… Continue
