Angry at the people of the world and not the world.

I am angry at the people of the world and not the world itself. How come? I found out the world was here first people second. Since no one can truthfully say we the people have been here either seven thousand seven hundred thousand or seven million years, then how come we still can't agree on anything, still murder rape and steal plus wars and haven't found peace in those times? Only a few have, how did they do that?…

Theosophical World Congress 2010 - Some thoughts

Based on the feedback received so far, the World Congress seems to be a great success.



Attendance: The congress was well attended by members from various sections and it is a good sign that many have taken the trouble to spend the money and travel to Rome. I was heartened to hear a large contingent of members traveled from Brazil and it only shows that the Brazil Section took the trouble to organize the trip in an efficient manner.…

The Theosophical World Congress evaluated

I came to the World Congress mainly for the people - as I do for any theosophical meeting. And the people were great. I met inspiring and hard working people from all over the world, and have learned about theosophical issues and activities all over the world. I do think in general the atmosphere of this congress was great: relaxed, friendly, cheerful even.

In planning such a congress I do think there are two possible roads to take:

  1. Going for a theosophical theme…

Every member of Brazil Delegation paid their own way - Correcting Katinka's Blog on the subject

Katinka’s blog about who paid Brazilian delegates/attendees expenses to the World Congress is untrue.



Here is the information verified with the Brazil delegates/attendees.




1. Brazilian Section did not pay expenses to any Brazilian delegates at all, not even for Marcos Resende, the National President.…

Heard by the pool of the Theosophical World Congress

I have never been to a theosophical meeting with so much technology: everybody is taking pictures with their own digital cameras. Live streaming and tv's at the back of the hall so everybody can see the speakers properly.

But the one feature of this congress that I think people most enjoy is the pool. It is large enough to take laps in and when it is hot - and it is hot - it is a relief to sit in the brieze by the water.

And sometimes conversations take place…

overheard in the lecture hall - Tenth Theosophical World Congress

While we're listening to lectures on brotherhood, some people had some poignant remarks.

For instance, various suggestions were made to replace 'Dear Brothers and Sisters' with

  1. Dear friends, monads, and countrymen, lend me your ears
  2. Dear permanent atoms ...

Someone else thought that 'dear sister Jane' had a Catholic sound.

Then the insight that 'The last thing a theosophist needs is…

Kim Dieu's Lecture in the World Congress - Some comments

Thanks for Katinka’s detailed report on Dieu’s lecture at the World Congress now in progress in Rome.



Dieu may be highly regarded in European circles, but world-wide, a thick cloud is hanging over her for two of her actions in the past which do not show wise judgment.



Firstly, she is one of the Quartet behind the ill-fated ultra secret plan to the General Council to disenfranchise all members in the election of International President and GC members seize the…

Kim Dieu and other symposium lectures world congress, July 12th

See also the final version of my review of Kim Dieu's talk.

The introductions to this morning's symposium lectures was a white delegate from Central Africa. The delegates from Africa are, from what I've seen so far, a good mix of black, white and Indian. I met the delegates from Ghana personally and they followed the world cup (won by Spain yesterday) as fervently as people in Europe have. About the world cup final: About… Continue

TS World Congress and Internet

Internet live streaming of the proceedings of the World Congress is a very welcome first step for TS trying to use Internet to reach the members and others interested in TS and theosophy. Let us hope the summary of the lectures are also posted on Internet soon without waiting for them to be published in print media which is going to take time.

Dara Tatray at the Theosophical World Congress

Honestly - I had hoped Dara would go into how biology and psychology have shown that compassion is as much built into us as competition is. She didn't. Her talk was based on a definition of science which covered mostly physics and parapsychology.

It was very interesting, however it was impossible to take notes on. Dara uses very long sentences and lots of quotes. This did not make a boring talk though: She talk slowly and clearly and really did very well on a topic that the TS…

P. Krishna at the Theosophical World Congress

This morning we had the lecture by Professor P. Krishna. His talk was inspiring. He talked about a lot that most of us have heard before: the interconnectedness of everything, ecology and how those isses are caused by people not realizing deeply enough that it's all us. This post is a combination of my notes from Krishna's talk and my own thoughts about the issues the TS is dealing with. It's loosely based also on my talks with individual theosophists at this congress.
