overheard in the lecture hall - Tenth Theosophical World Congress

While we're listening to lectures on brotherhood, some people had some poignant remarks.

For instance, various suggestions were made to replace 'Dear Brothers and Sisters' with

  1. Dear friends, monads, and countrymen, lend me your ears
  2. Dear permanent atoms ...

Someone else thought that 'dear sister Jane' had a Catholic sound.

Then the insight that 'The last thing a theosophist needs is another talk'.

One person was heard to remark: 'I have taken a vow against workshops, unless it can be proven in advance that the person conducting it knows what a workshop is. It is not a mini-lecture for instance.'


The TS is a talking and sitting society.Edi Belimoria said: If there's any problem, preach in platitudes.

Two people actually gave me permission to give their names here.

Edi Belimoria said: If there's any problem, preach in platitudes.

P. Krishna said: if only sermons could solve problems.

That one reminds me of a Joy Mills joke. If theosophists had to choose between devachan and a lecture about it, they would choose the latter :) More theosophical jokes: http://www.katinkahesselink.net/other/jokes_t.html
