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…Continue
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…

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:
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…
As I just posted on my Modern Theosophy blog, I resigned my membership this morning.
Just thought you'd all want to know. Here's my full explanation: http://www.moderntheosophy.com/2011/member-theosophical-society/

Videos of 10th International Theosophical Congress is now On-line.
By live streaming of the 10th International Conference, Italian Section made it for the first time that everyone around the world can see what is going on in the congress. Due to time zone difference and other reasons, many would have missed many of the sessions. Now, the video recordings of the sessions are on-line and can be viewed by anyone with an…

Eight page Daily Bulletin for the second day of the Convention is on the

It contains summaries of talks by:
R C Tampi
There is also a list of General Secretaries and representatives attending
the convention. The attendance this year is much better than last year
(especially from the West) and we will…

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…

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:Continue

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.

As usual, the International Convention will start on December 26, 2010 in
Adyar. Here is the tentative program I found on Adyar Website. What is
significant is that the General Council Meeting schedule is also included.
If anyone with a computer is attending the Convention, it would be very
informative if a daily - one…

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…
