visit to the Adyar website gave me a surprise. Daily Bulletins in pdf 



format for each day is indicated. So you can visit each day and see the

bulletin and know the highlights of the day. This is a small step in 

providing info on the happenings on a daily basis. I hope, next year,

Theosophist & Lucifer Magazine Issues - Indexed / searchable PDF Files

Traditionally, in print media, an index is compiled and put at the end of the publication. Modern digitization technology has enabled every word in the pdf file to be indexed. This enables one to search for a word or words in the entire file, which is very powerful and handy for the reader.

 

All the Theosophist and Lucifer files in this site are searchable pdf files. The credit goes to Marc who took care of the processing after scanned file was available.

Theosophical disconnect

Theosophical disconnect

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
