Re: International President endorses Casteism as a Criterion for Chelaship

Dear Mkr

May I suggest you and others read more than 350 comments
on the Theosophy Community discussion website under the 
heading "The Esoteric School Lobby."

Among others, Anton Rozman wrote recently:

"A little less than a year ago Mrs. Betty Bland and three other 
members of the GC made a proposal of Amendments to the 
TS Rules and Regulations. One of the Amendments was dealing 
with the way in which the TS President is elected. The proposal 
was sent to the TS Administration in Adyar according to the 
required procedure but definite person who had access to this 
document at Adyar made it public and characterized it on 
theos_talk e-mail list as an "attempt to disenfranchise members". 
What followed is what I call the campaign of "members' 
disenfranchisement" on that e-mail list as there are people who 
are demonizing those who proposed the Amendment as a clique 
and characterizing the proposal as an "ultra secret attempt to 
disenfranchise members with the purpose to make the TS 
President a puppet". This campaign actually prevented and is 
still preventing a rational debate not only on that Amendment 
but on any proposed change in the TS Rules and Regulations." 

I also read from someone else that the proposal was deliberately 
leaked so as to create the impression that a "secret attempt" was 

Regardless of whether we agree or not with the proposal of 
discussion for the General Council members to elect the 
international President, it appears the process to discuss the 
issue was in order and not from "ultra secret?"
