Vol 6 of Krotona Series by Joseph Ross Released

Just learnt that Joseph Ross has released Vol 6 of Krotona Series. Deals with years after 1931. Yet to see the book. Just ordered it from Amazon. Also a Kindle edition is available. Will look forward to a pdf file. Which is the most efficient and effective way to distribute material around the world in today's Internet World.  This is especially true when those interested in the history of TS and JK are miniscule and spread around the world. Yet to see any reviews by editors and authors. Let…

Late White Lotus Day Meditation

Hi all,

I just wrote a blogpost on my Modern Theosophy Blog and not till I was finished did I notice it was the day after White Lotus. Here it is: 

Theosophists must excuse me for once more butting in where I no longer have any business. I was thinking just now about where the Theosophical Movement went wrong. When did, in…

Theosophy and TS

One of the things that baffles newbees as well as long-time students of theosophy, is the confused definitions of theosophy. When one tries to discuss or debate the subject, we may end up parting with deep disagreements because each one of us may have been introduced to theosophy by various lineages, each clinging to certain viewpoints. HPB seems to have forseen this problem and addressed this to the second annual convention of the American Section. She stated:

But there…

Contribution of Joe Fulton and Theosnet Recognized

A new book titled The Theosophical Society: The History of a Spiritual Movement has been published by Jeffrey D Lavoie. First 25 pages can be found here.



While I have not had a chance to access the full book, it appears that it is a well researched publication and hence anyone interested in the history of TS should read it.



Something that is to be noticed is the author’s acknowledgement of the…

Out of print theosophical books - A simple solution

 The uploading of early Theosophists, Lucifer and The Path demonstrated what is doable by a handful of dedicated theosophists. Further, out of box thinking, brought me to the subject of out of print theosophical books. Using KISS and non-organizational and non-business approach, here is my loud thinking.

The eight page bulletin for third day of the convention is on the Adyar website.



The attendance at the convention is 1,200 plus, which is a welcome news.



There are summaries of talks by:

In addition, there are summaries of activities in many of the European Countries. What is striking for anyone who has been in India, is how minuscule the membership in many of these countries.

Theosophical disconnect

Theosophical disconnect



Frequently one finds a disconnect between what theosophists talk about and act. This is all the more so when you deal with ‘organizational’ theosophists.



The scanning and uploading of early issues of Theosophist on this site is an  invaluable resource…

Theosophical organisational issues

I've been neglecting you all. I'm sorry - the last months of the year are the busiest, for my online publishing work (which pays my bills). Here's what I've written about the present and future of the Theosophical Society:

Theosophist Magazine 1879-1885 Scanned and Posted to Cyberspace

The volumes scanned and made available due to the labors of dedicated theosophists contain very valuable information which many will find it interesting and useful. But for Internet, it would have been almost inaccessible for ordinary readers. Now the task is for the masses to get to know about it. Most of us use search engines to find information and hence I expect most readers will come to the site from searches. In the meanwhile, let each one of us spread the word.

Two recently published theosophical books

Katinka, in her blog, brought attention to the two theosophical books published in 2010; one by Joy Mills on ML and the other SD Commentaries.



It is a pity that neither is cheap and especially the Commentaries are very pricey and out of reach of most middle class theosophists especially in the third world.



The decision makers could have simply made an electronic edition available on Internet. All books, these days are first created in electronic media and then only it is…

Why TS/TSA should make electronic versions of publications available for free?

Why TS/TSA should make electronic versions of publications available for free?



The current situation regarding electronic version of SD Commentaries (SDC) has brought focus on the need for the publications to be made available as pdf files.



In the case of SDC, due to the pricey hard copy publication, someone has taken the trouble to scan it to a pdf file and make it available on Internet. Since the copyright holder objected to it, it was removed from the website. But in the… Continue

Converstion of hard copies to electronic medium

Many times we may like to convert hard copies to electronic medium by scanning them. Theosophists world-wide are a minuscule in numbers and many are acquainted with each other. With the scanners becoming inexpensive, there would be an urge to convert hard copies of documents to a pdf file. However, we want to avoid re-inventing the wheel by trying to scan hard copy books and periodicals wasting time and labor. Anytime, we are embarking on a scanning project, it would be a good idea to inquire… Continue

TS is 135 years old today

Erica reminded everyone on theos-talk that TS is 135 years old today.

It is remarkable that we are now talking to a world-wide audience almost with the speed of light.

Theosophy has indeed affected almost everyone who came into contact with it.

Modern communication technology is going to make theosophy reach millions in days to come.

May the "Forlorn Hope" become reality, at least partially in the days to come.
