http://judis.nic.in/judis_chennai/Judge_Result_Disp.asp?MyChk=233224

 

Tim Boyd, as President of TS, filed objections claiming that the members have no standing to sue.

This was denied and judge has ruled that they have standing and hence the case goes forward to trial.

It is significant that the judge has recognized the importance of fair and free elections in Democracy and let us all pray that at the end of the day, the law suit will fix the TS President Election System as it is very critical to the future of theosophical movement.

We can be sure that theosophical movement will ultimately win.

 

In the trial, much details would emerge, we all should be ready for many surprises.

 

 

Some Key Observations:

 

"Accordingly, this application (of Tim Boyd) deserves no merits and the same is dismissed." 

 

"Accordingly, this Court is of the view that the applicant/D10 is not  justified in contending that the respondents 1 and 2/plaintiffs are not having locus-standi to file the present suit" 

.

"Court has also found that a member or voter of a Society/Association has a right to challenge the elections in the absence of specific bar either in the Bye-laws or under the statutory provisions."

 

"I have already pointed out that the By-laws of the first defendant-Association are totally silent about the manner in which the elections have to be challenged."

 

"Election is a symbol of Democracy and the same has to be conducted strictly in accordance with the procedures established by law in a fair, transparent and unbiased manner. There cannot be any compromise on the mandatory and essential procedures in conducting the elections. Only when those procedures are strictly followed, it could be said that the Democratic way of electing people, has been achieved. If there are any deviations, it should be viewed seriously, as the same cannot get the seal of approval from a Court of Law, automatically.”

Международный Теософский Конгресс 

Dear Theosophists ❗We inform you that the Russian Lodge "Adamant", as well as other members of the Theosophical Society with diplomas from the TS (Adyar), namely 46 theosophists, announce their official withdrawal from membership of the TS (Adyar), according to their personal statements.
The decision of the General Council of the Theosophical Society (Adyar), headed by an American citizen Tim Boyd, to liquidate the Adamant Lodge without providing the documents on the basis of which this decision was made is unprecedented. The leadership of Adyar did not bother to acquaint the Theosophists with either the Protocol of the General Council or any other information, for example, who exactly was present at the General Council and what exactly the Adamant Lodge was accused of, did not bother to request explanations from the Adamant Lodge, on the basis of which a decision would have been made to revoke the status of a Lodge (Charter).
The absence of the above documents proves that the leadership of Adyar has forgotten how serious and responsible this decision to revoke the Charter of the Lodge is and that they are responsible for it before the entire world community.
Moreover, in order to make such a responsible decision, it is necessary, first of all, to have a decision of the Theosophical Society of Russia, at least a Protocol of the General Meeting of all Lodges in Russia with a list of evidence about the "non-Theosophical activities" of the Adamant Lodge and the results of the vote.
It took a lot of efforts, long work and a path of learning to create the Lodge. At present, the Adamant Lodge is known for its activities to Theosophists of different countries, because it is an engine of Theosophical thought that makes its efforts and selfless work for the benefit of humanity under the auspices of the Theosophical Society (Adyar) so that the banner of Theosophy becomes visible over the world.
For several years, the Adamant Lodge has implemented many Theosophical projects with no analogues in the world and brought the concept of Theosophy to a publicly significant social level. But the leadership of Adyar preferred not to notice anything like this, but to unfairly accuse the Lodge of a false representation of Theosophy and liquidate it.
✅We believe that the political decision of the General Council and the TS (Adyar) undermined the foundations of brotherhood, the basis of cooperation, the independence of thoughts and judgments, common trust and practically put forward a ban on the study and research of "The Secret Doctrine" of H.P. Blavatsky. Thus, it confirmed its incapacity, inability and unwillingness to conduct research and public activities at a qualitatively new level according to modern standards. You could have used the experience of the Adamant Lodge, but you chose to liquidate it. Your and A. Besputin’s painstaking work against Adamant's activities has been conducted for a long time and purposefully, and our open statement of support for Peace against fascism was only a pretext for liquidation.
For many years you have been covering the maleficent activities of the representative of the president (Adyar) in Russia A. Besputin, who was not accepting documents for admission to the TS and the issuance of diplomas, documents for the creation of new Lodges, groups in Russia, did not fulfill many decisions of TS Lodges, did not send a full package of documents to the Adyar about the Decision of 7 Lodges to create an Association of the TS of Russia, for 6 years has not submitted a single financial report with the attachment of documents relevant to the decisions of the Lodges on the expenditure of the general contributions of TS members. About all these violations and A. Besputin’s abuses of authority you have repeatedly been officially informed by Russian Lodges, but you did not take into account these facts.
You defend fascism and the proxy war unleashed by the United States with the help of Ukraine against Russia, thereby finally undermining confidence in the Theosophical Society.
You once rejected W.Q. Judge, the only one who did not betray H.P. Blavatsky (in her own words), you wallowed in rites and rituals, which H.P.B. fought against, you equated Theosophy with religion, forgetting that There is no religion higher than Truth.
We leave without regret such a society, which has violated all three main goals of the creation of the TS and voluntarily cancel our diplomas. But we will forever preserve our love for Adyar and reverence for the place where the Masters visited, despite the fact that after the departure of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky from the earthly plane, They left it.
✅Our activity has never depended on anyone's decisions and assessments, because knowledge and the development of consciousness do not depend on the presence or absence of a diploma. True Brotherhood is measured by other measures – in Spirit.
Here are the words of one of the free Theosophists from Russia, not a member of a Lodge, who, having passed the whole story through the heart, wrote in a statement about leaving the TS: "Helena Petrovna Blavatsky was born in our Land, and no Adyar will ever truly understand Her Soul! Her Great Heart! Let's recollect how Our Master was wounded in a Russian-Turkish War, let's recollect how Helena Petrovna smashed furniture of an English lord, just because he said bad things about Russia! I'm leaving Adyar, I'm leaving my diploma to you without regret. Because I know you've lost everything! And we, who love our dear Helena Petrovna, are finally with Her forever!"
We are starting a new journey and invite you all to promote Theosophical thought together, to make discoveries, to explore the Laws of the Cosmos, Nature and Man. The time has come for Theosophy to go into science, culture, health care, education. The activity of the International Center of Theosophy, H.P. Blavatsky International Research Center, begins. And may the Divine Wisdom illuminate this World.
Some statements of TS members, explaining reasons for their withdrawal
"I, a survivor of the Siege of Leningrad, declare my voluntary withdrawal from the Theosophical Society in Adyar, based on my sincere conviction that from a fraternal organization the Theosophical Society has become a political one, activities of which and those who helped in making this blasphemous decision to liquidate the only working Lodge in Russia, the Adamant Lodge, are directed against Russia."
"I attribute my leaving to the loss of confidence in the TS Adyar in the person of Tim Boyd, since the society discredited itself as a Theosophical organziation by illegally depriving, in violation of procedural norms, the Adamant Lodge (Russia) of its Charter, with the participation of A. Besputin (the representative of the president in the Russian Federation). I consider my presence in the Adyar Society incompatible with the theosophical worldview".
"I ask you to exclude me from the Theosophical Society (Adyar) at my own request, especially since I have already joined another Theosophical society, where there is no politics and destruction of Theosophical thought, but there is a Brotherhood".
"I cannot accept your position in relation to the special operation in the Donbas, which has turned into a bloodbath due to the gross interference of America and Western countries using Ukraine as a weapon against Russia. You have failed the tests and betrayed the founders of the TS, the Masters of the East, the Divine Entity. Without these Great Ascetics and carriers of True Knowledge, your society is dead. Under your “sensitive” leadership, the TS has turned into a society of traitors and to be a member of it means to be a traitor. Not a chance!"
"A society that rejects its best representatives, who give unique and original ideas and directions for the study of Theosophical works and the socialization of Theosophy, who have proved their highest devotion to Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and the Masters, as evidenced by decades of experience, such a society does not have the future that is commanded by the Masters of Light".
"I ask you to withdraw me from the Theosophical Society (Adyar), because I consider it impossible for me to stay in the same organization with you."
"In connection with the anti-Russian position of the leadership of the Theosophical Society (Adyar) and non-fraternal behavior towards Theosophists of Russia, disrespect for the memory of the Founder of the Theosophical Society Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, who was a great patriot of Russia and made every effort to elevate the name of Russia in the world, I declare my withdrawal from the membership of this TS. Were HPB now embodied in a physical body, she would undoubtedly stand on the side of Russia in the issue of conducting the special operation in Ukraine. All the talk that this is not the case only means that people who speak against Russia and against the fact that at this time it is impossible to solve the issue of growing fascism on the territory of Ukraine in other ways, except for the one our President is conducting, do not understand that there is a great division, equal or maybe more dramatic than that which took place during the Mahabharata. Those who do not see the depth of cause-and-effect relationships and the complexity of what is happening simply do not see and do not feel Theosophy and the Teaching of the Heart. In this regard, I am glad to announce my withdrawal from the Theosophical Society (Adyar) and I hope that those who are still able to look over their personal concepts and insinuations of Belial’s servants against Russia will be able to shed the veil of anti-Russian propaganda and Russophobia, and take the side of Those Who gave them the opportunity to follow the Path!"
