Subject: Theos-World Letter to the International President of the TS

Dear Radhaji,

As the TS goes through another of its periodical crises, the present 
being perhaps one of the most serious in the last one hundred years, 
my thoughts are very much with you at this moment.

I am sure I am joined in my concern for both your well-being and the 
well-being of The Theosophical Society by members in many countries.

One joins the TS in order to serve its purpose and ideals, and this 
is a privilege of many lifetimes, as the Society exists to help the 
Powers of Goodness and Wisdom in their work of regenerating the human 

Those who, in the recent Presidential election in the TS, used your 
health as an instrument of political manipulation and power, are now 
attempting to curtail your constitutional prerogatives as the duly 
elected President of the TS, among other things. They are also 
attempting to disenfranchise the entire membership of the Society 
from their fundamental right to elect the International President.

We have seen such forces acting at different times in the history of 
the Society. They are the instruments of division, strife and 
separateness. However, every time such forces have raised their 
heads, and attempted to deviate the Society from its sacred purpose, 
they have been prevented from doing so by the collective will of the 
majority of the members. The present attempt is perhaps more serious 
because it includes manipulation and politicking from within the 
General Council. Those who are doing so, as you know, have not 
consulted you at any time regarding their intended actions. 

Your life and your work speak for themselves. When members world-wide 
successively elected you as President of the Theosophical Society, 
they expressed their choice. Your mandate therefore has been given to 
you by the members of the TS. Your contribution to the Society is 
such that it has maintained the TS as a strong spiritual body 
internationally. You have shown us that the essence of Theosophy is 
indeed human regeneration and, in doing so, you have helped to keep 
alive within us, members, the message of the Founders.

With strong support for your work, for Adyar and with warm and 
fraternal good wishes,

Pedro Oliveira
