Adyar TS Convention Bulletin - Dec 26, 2010

For the first time in TS history, members around the world are able to keep up with the daily happenings at the International Convention through the daily bulletin that is posted at the Adyar Website.

Here is the link.

Eight page pdf file bulletin for the Inaugural day - 26th December is highly welcome. It contains the President’s Address in full and in my opinion, it is excellent.

What I would have liked to see are brief accounts of other lectures and significant happenings of the day, in addition.

In the bulletin, there is the mention of the periodicals published from Adyar, namely-

The Theosophist (Monthly)
Adyar Newsletter (Quarterly)
Wakeup India (Quarterly)
Theosophical Digest (Quarterly)

Most of us outside India, have not seen any of the above, except the Theosophist unless one has access to a good theosophical library. It would be nice if all of the above are released as pdf files, as they are published, so that world-wide membership can keep up with them.

This brings another aspect of the issue of access to Adyar periodicals. Recently, a very small group of theosophists have scanned and made early issues of Theosophist and Lucifer available on Internet at www.theosophy.net. This demonstrated the doability of scanning and uploading past issues of magazines in a very small budget. This is a one-time job for posterity. I hope the authorities at Adyar will look into making this happen soon. The group which worked on material at www.theosophy.net can share their experience for the project.

Enjoy the bulletin.

Just looked at the Hodson's Book Light on the Sanctuary and there are two copies on Amazon for $300 plus; out of reach of most theosophists. Something like this should be available on pdf file.

There was a request from a long time theosophist if Hodson's book Light on the Sanctuary is available in pdf form. I do not think so, unless someone has one for personal use.

 

I feel there is no reason why all theosophical material is not made available as pdf files. We need decision makers to think thru all the good that would come to Humanity from this. I am sure many volunteers would be available to make this happen.
