eBooks and shape of future of free publications
While browsing on Internet, I was surprised to find free several theosophical publications are available on Barnes & Noble’s Nook eReader. All these free books are out of print books. The eBook phenomenon in books - both old and new - is taking off and the current attraction is the immediate download and low prices. There is a push to keep the prices low to attract larger readership by keeping the royalties higher at lower selling… Continue

The recent trend in downloading of programs, music and other material, coupled with inexpensive pricing spurred by the wide spread use of wireless phones has opened up a new channel in distribution. So much has been downloaded from the Apple store that its sale has surpassed other major retailers such as Best Buy, Walmart etc.
In the spiritual related matters, this trend can be taken care of to feed those hungry for information. Instead of traditional bulky printed pricey material, I… Continue

How do we make materials available to all souls, rich and poor, who may be able to use them and transform themselves and thus the world?
On the one hand, we have seen spiritual publications, nicely printed and bound to last for centuries and more, but literally costing an arm and a leg so that the poor theosophist in the developing world cannot afford them.
There was no solution to this dilemma 10 - 20 years ago. But today we have one which is inexpensive and efficient -… Continue

A pseudonymous author has in another Internet forum questioned certain dates in Jerry' intro. Theosophical circle is small and most of the active players know each other, at least on the Internet. Surely the man or woman who has been hiding under assumed name is someone we all know or even possibly is one of the members here.
If there are factual errors, why the writer did not choose to contact Jerry directly so that… Continue

The uploading of early Theosophists, Lucifer and The Path demonstrated what is doable by a handful of dedicated theosophists. Further, out of box thinking, brought me to the subject of out of print theosophical books. Using KISS and non-organizational and non-business approach, here is my loud thinking.
