Re: Theos-World Leadership seems to foster egomania

It is sad to see personal issues causing harm to theosophy -- not the
doctrines, details of unseen worlds, and other philosophical matters.
Anyone who reads the views of Mahachohan as found in ML to APS, which are
considered the charter of the TS, anyone can easily understand the important
from the unimportant.
Add to this, a comment in one of the Mahatma Letters how Anna Kingsfordâs
vegetarian and anti-vivisection activities brought the attention of
Mahachohan, indicates the importance of many of the activities carried out
by TOS. Causing difficulties for the operation of TOS only ends up hurting
the recipients of help that TOS provides. They are not the fat cats (rich
people). They are the needy living beings.
Due to the autonomy of the Sections, it is up to the section members to
communicate to their leaders their disapproval of the action to throw out
TOS under some pretense. Who is going to mix up TS and TOS? On the other
hand, TOS in addition to carrying out a needed service to Humanity, may
bring in dedicated warm hearted men and women who in turn join TS. With 22
members showing up for the general assembly, the situation is pitiful.
Daily we are seeing actions from leaders which we can only call - cutting
our own throats!
