You keep pointing out to the issue of a lack of transparency in the TS. Well, I do hope the President and her aides at Adyar especially are listening to you. They do lack transparency, but then how can you expect them to stand in the Light of Truth when they have not been able to do that with themselves in the first place?

      Recently, there was a cryptic comment that the leaders from outside India

seem to be more interested in knowing who is mowing the lawn in Adyar. This

points to misplaced priority of the leaders whose job primary job is to make

sure theosophy flourishes in their Sections. The sections are given full

autonomy and also the National Secretaries are given total immunity in that

they cannot be removed from the General Council for any reason. Diverting

the attention of the members to Adyar issues while the membership situation

in most countries is either frozen or on the decline â hopefully we will not

end with sometimes quoted number of three theosophists. This diverting the

attention of the members is seen by many as self-serving and not unlike how

politicians divert attention of their constituents to unimportant issues

while fire is raging on critical issues.

Two key issues at Section level are the sad situation regarding membership

and the ultra secrecy with which Section matters are handled, namely lack of

real transparency.

While reviewing the maillist archives, I ran into three messages touching on

the membership and secrecy issue in the American Section. I am sure you will

find them interesting to read. Here are the links.
