As the end of the TS has been (again) announced, I haste in sharing
some ideas about the subject.
One of HPB's Teachers declared: "You have still to learn that so
long as there are three men worthy of our Lord's blessing, in the
Theosophical Society, it can never be destroyed." (LMW, I, 40, also
mentioned in HPB's ES Instructions III)
Surprisingly, something went wrong and the other Master associated
with the beginnings of the Society had this to say:
"Because the Society has liberated itself from our grasp and
influence and we have let it go — we make no unwilling slaves. He
[HSO] says he has saved it? He saved its body, but he allowed
through sheer fear, to its soul to escape, and it is now a soulless
corpse, a machine run so far well enough, but which will fall to
pieces when he is gone. Out of the three objects the second alone is
attended to, but it is no longer either a brotherhood, nor a body
over the face of which broods the Spirit from beyond the Great
Range." (LMW, I, 47)
Note that not even HPB, the 'direct agent' of the Mahatmas, could
save the TS at that time. Are the two above statements
contradictory? Or do they point to the responsibility of the
members? I believe the year was 1888.

The Australian section is not the biggest, ratio-wise. Probably
Finland or Cuba, one of the two, is.

There was a smoking ceremony at the opening of the World Congress in
Sydney, 2001, performed by Australian Aborigines. I did meet the
members from Ukraine but didn't know about the reported phenomena.
As Daniel Caldwell says in his website, there is indeed a morass of
