Adyar Theosophical Society:
HOW Does One Explain These Two Statements? 

HOW does one explain the two statements BELOW
by the late John Coats, President of the
Theosophical Society (Adyar) from 1973-1979?

What caused such a state of affairs?

Is this situation as described by Mr. Coats
INDICATIVE of the Adyar T.S.
organization and its "mindset"?

Are these statements still true in 2008?

Is such a state of affairs "good" or "bad" or
it doesn't matter?

The two statements by Mr. Coats are as follows:

"The percentage of members, who have not as yet
ever read any books by H.P. Blavatsky is
regrettably high." The Theosophist, Feb., 1975

"There's a great need for the deepening of the
individual member's understanding of theosophy.
A lot of people skate superfically over the
surface of theosophy without really going into
it in depth." The Theosophist, Dec. 1975.
