Re: TS - ILLEGAL CHANGES TO INTERNATIONAL RULES

That was indeed a long well argumented and formed letter. It is a shame
that Algeo lobbied these illegal and perverse things behind members'
back! I am grateful to Mr. Sanat for this deep analysis.
However, a couple of things disturb me. To me Sanat seems to
represent "the old school", which always claims that we don't need any
institutional changes because "the TS is a spiritual organization". I
think we have heard this song too long and I am sure that this is one
reason why the Society is right now so stagmatized. Is it so that most
Indian members don't miss any development into the organization? I
believe that most Westerners absolutely need institutional changes into
the TS. Further, it seems to me that Sanat doesn't want to admit that
the international administration doesn't work as a true democracy now.
I have heard many complainments how Sections and members are not
listened at Adyar. So it is populism to say that the TS already is a
And Sanat mentions importance of Adyar. Why? In my knowledge Algeo has
not talked against Adyar being the center of the TS. You can read what
Algeo says in his web site. Is this what many Indians seem to fear: if
they critizise Adyar and India, they fear that the HQ will be moved
For me the TS is ALSO a secular organization which needs to be
developed. I think this notorious quartet had also good proposals.
Some writers here have already said that the Indian Section has not
necessarily been succesful. I agree with them. There are so many people
in India anyway, and more are born all the time with high percentage.
And actually, there were a couple of thousands of members more in India
only a few years ago.
I thank Mr. Sanat once again. Just wanted to express other views, too.
