The Adyar Convention Bulletin 4 is now online at the Adyar website.
It contains summary of lectures by:
N R Narayana Murthy
C A Shinde
Also an account of the TOS activities is there.
A summary of the activities of TS mostly in South American countries can be found in the Bulletin.
There are two significant facts that I noticed. The first one was that in Chile, electronic publications are well received. Should this surprise anyone in today’s electronic world? Continued, obsolete thinking of key decision makers in TS around the world makes them cling to the print model and in today’s world, electronic publications are well received, not to mention the very low cost and also the world-wide immediate distribution as well as updating of the material. Putting out electronic publication is one time effort and lasts for ever. One more tool to broadcast the message of theosophy. Just today, one theosophist was inquiring on theos-talk if Hodson’s Light on the Sanctuary is available in electronic form. Probably not, unless it has been scanned and circulated privately. It is time to open the eyes and see what current technology can do for theosophy.
The second item that caught my eye was the membership in Singapore lodge. This single lodge has 366 members; more than many Sections around the world. The lodge should be doing something right and it is time that rest of the world visit the lodge and find out the secret of their success, instead of justifying why membership is low in the West.
The current report of the delegates is 1,424, which is very good. Of course, most of the members are from India, which has the largest Section.
You can read and enjoy the full bulletin at Bulletin 4.
