One way to answer the questions is to go to the nearest street corner and botton-hole passers by asking "Do you know what Theosophy is? " and then "Do you know what Theosophy means? " and "Do you know who Madame Blavatsky was? " and "Do you think the Theosophical Teachings are important in your life in any way? ". Do this for a long time moving to different street corners in different parts of the city with different incomes and types of people, you will get the answers.

Subject: Theos-World 2 Statements to Ponder On 

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 2009? 

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

The two statements 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.
