The Bulletin for the 5th Day of the Adyar Convention is now on Adyar website.
For some reason, there was a delay in it being uploaded to the site.
The bulletin contain summaries of talks by:
The talk by Saripalli is on Changing Environment which was delivered as the Theosophy Science lecture.
There is news about activities around the world and this keeps us informed of happenings around the world.
There is a report on TOS and it is significant to notice that the book – Helping the Dying by Nelda Samarel is being distributed thru TOS and anyone can contact the director in their respective countries to get a copy.
Nelda Samrel is one of the Directors of TS in America and resides in Krotona, Californai.
One wonders why this book is not made available for free on TOS or any other theosophical website. This way one need not go in a round about, time consuming process to get hold of a copy. This saves time and money for everyone including TOS. I hope the movers and shakers in TOS, including the author seriously consider making this available on Internet.
In the report on Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar, there is mention about re-prints of books and publication of a couple of new books.
What is missing is that no one seems to be interested in making any of the books, old and new as pdf files so that any theosophist can access it. Also, with print on demand in many western countries, one can get a book printed. I hope to see something is done on this matter of policy. As I have already mentioned, today’s scanners do a quick job of converting books into pdf files and active theosophists are going to resort to it when they need a pdf copy since they cannot get it for love or money.
The bulletin closes with a quote from HPB, which is below:
Let the encouragement we draw from a survey of the results accomplished in the year that has fled serve to spur us on to greater efforts and more strenuous exertions. Let it make all feel that there is now a power behind the Society which will give us the strength we need, which will enable us to move the world, if we will but UNITE and WORK as one mind, one heart. The Masters require only that each shall do his best, and, above all, that each shall strive in reality to feel himself one with his fellow-workers. It is not a dull agreement on intellectual questions, or an impossible unanimity as to all details of work, that is needed; but a true, hearty, earnest devotion to our cause which will lead each to help his brother to the utmost of his power to work for that cause, whether or not we agree as to the exact method of carrying on that work. The only man who is absolutely wrong in his method is the one who does nothing; each can and should cooperate with all and all with each in a large-hearted spirit of comradeship to forward the work of bringing Theosophy home to every man and woman in the country.
H. P. Blavatsky
