The 135th International Convention at Adyar will commence tomorrow. A
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,
Adyar resorts to live streaming of the programs, which will bring
membership in closer contact…

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.
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…

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.

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…
