Volunteers and TS

Recently there have been some discussions in Internet about need for
volunteers to help theosophical organization and it is a very important and
interesting topic. Anyone who reads the history of TS knows it is the
dedicated volunteers who are responsible for building up the organization

Today we have Internet which provides contemporary and archived information
about the going ons in the organization. For anyone to get committed and
volunteer their time and money, they need to be convinced about the
objectives and ideals of the organization and a very high degree of
confidence in the leaders.

Anyone who Googles or Bings Internet and reads what went on since the start
of last yearâs election, and the continued lack of transparency will make
potential volunteers confused and make them wonder what is going on. What is
most shocking to the lay men and women is the secret attempt to
disenfranchise members world-wide and make the president a puppet and thus
control the TS and its valuable assets and treasury.

What is also striking is the disconnect between the talk and the walk and
lack of unity and the cleavage in the membership of the General Council.

Unless the situation is fixed quickly and unity is brought about and the
confidence level in the leaders, scholars, elders, clairvoyants of TS is
rebuilt, it will be very hard to find real committed volunteers. I hope some
of the leaders are reading what is going on here on this list and other
Internet forums.

We all hope things to change soon for the better.
