TS - Adyar

There were some msgs on the leadership of TS-Adyar. Here are my .02.

After Jiddu Krishnamurti came on board, there has never been any charismatic
and outstanding leader in the theosophical arena. This includes everyone who
came after Annie Besant.

In addition, historically in any upcoming growing movement, the leadership
has always been young and/or middle aged. Lord Buddha, Shri Shankaracharya,
Lord Jesus comes to my mine. Even HPB, Olcott, and Judge and others were in
their prime of life, not old men and women, having a second career after
retirement from fulltime jobs.

So to me it looks like the Theosophical Movement is in a maintenance mode
for quite some years. I do not see any upcoming charismatic young or middle
aged leadership on the horizon yet. The use of Internet also has changed the
need to have physical organizational structure that was necessary 100 years
ago. So it looks like we will be in a maintenance mode for the forseeable
future with the property and assets being used in the mechanical function of
publishing and other similar activities.

So in 10 to 20 years from now, if TS turns out to be an administrative
organization, one should not be surprised.
