When has a Mahatma fed anything but himself?

For some reason a  scorpion hiding in the midst of Adyar is an interesting 

metaphor,  considering some of the stuff going on lately.

And yet, how wonderful  it would have been if, while the Mahachohan had been 

filling the skies  of the ashram with hot air, a large, cream pie had 

miraculously  appeared and hit him in the face. I have a feeling that that 
one thing  

would have been the most salutary and instructive incident that could  have 

happened in Theosophy.

And it would have been very funny  to see as well.

When the plane landed at Chennai last Friday, Mumbai was still  under 

a terrorist siege. The terrorists struck at the very touristic  heart 

of that city, near the famous Gateway of India. On Saturday  morning, 

when commandos of the National Security Guard finally cleared  the 

last hotel in which hostages were being kept, the total death toll  

was over 170, with more than 300 people injured. There was widespread  

shock and disbelief in India. But India always recovers from such  


Students from Slovenia, Finland, Canada, Australia,  Hungary and India 

are attending classes at the School of the Wisdom.  The theme is "The 

Mahatmas on Theosophy and the TS". There is half an  hour of silent 

meditation before the morning talk begins.

The  different departments at Adyar are gearing up for the Convention 

at  the end of the month. There were strong rains and winds in the 

last  fortnight and some trees were uprooted. 

I met the President briefly  the day after my arrival. She was 

preparing to go to a meeting at the  Government House (Rashtrapati 

Bhavan). She was invited by the Governor  of Arunachal Pradesh to give 

a speech during a book launch. She goes  to the office both in the 

mornings and afternoons. 

The quiet  and natural beauty at Adyar are refreshing. In one evening 

I decided  to go for a walk after dinner and took with me a small 

torch. Near the  coconut grove I met one of the many natural residents 

at Adyar: a  black scorpion. He (or she) was the sort of creature that 

makes you  pay careful attention. We had this silent meeting and I 

then decided  to part company with the illustrious resident when I 

finally realized  he was not going anywhere!

Some of the workers I had met in 1992 are  still here and they 

apparently remember me. The TS at Adyar has given  employment to 

generations of workers coming from the impoverished  surroundings. 

Many of their children have studied in the Olcott  Memorial High 


One of the passages we examined recently  at the School of the Wisdom 


"Shall we devote our selves to  teaching a few Europeans fed on the 

fat of the land, many of them  loaded with the gifts of blind fortune, 

the rationale of bell ringing,  cup growing, of the spiritual 

telephone and astral body formation, and  leave the teeming millions 

of the ignorant, of the poor and despised,  the lowly and the 

oppressed, to take care of themselves and of their  hereafter the best 

they know how. Never. Rather perish the  Theosophical Society with 

both its hapless founders than that we  should permit it to become no 

better than an academy of magic and a  hall of occultism. That we, the 

devoted followers of that spirit  incarnate of absolute self 

sacrifice, of philanthropy, divine  kindness, as of all the highest 

virtues attainable on this earth of  sorrow, the man of men, Gautama 

Buddha, should ever allow the  Theosophical Society to represent the 

embodiment of selfishness, the  refuge of the few with no thought in 

them for the many, is a strange  idea, my brothers." (The Mahachohan's 


Walking around  Adyar and its encircling neighbourhood helps us to 

understand the  words of that great Adept. There cannot be Theosophy 

without a genuine  sense of compassion towards those who are poor and  


The rains have stopped, the work continues, the crows  are everywhere 

and Adyar continues to be pervaded by a sense of  uncreated vastness 

and peace. I miss my litlle black scorpion friend.  Perhaps we shall 

meet again. He has taught me to remain mindful. And  he also goes to 

sleep in the magic quiet of Adyar nights.
