Thanks for the information.

For whatever reasons, TS leaders have been very slow to take advantage of
what Internet has to offer to disseminate theosophy to the people world-wide
and I feel they are yet to wake up.

Even such simple things like making newsletters and magazines available as
pdf file is yet to be implemented. Recently a friend from another continent
wanted a copy of a newsletter published here and it took a few minutes for
me to scan it and email it. I called the editor and suggested they make the
newsletter available as a pdf file. The editor is a very old person in the
80s and I do not know even if the editor understood my request. I have not
heard anything so far.

While a lot of good work may be going on in the higher planes, disseminating
theosophy to the world should be top priority because that was why it was
established in the first place.

I think this is a very important topic that can be discussed in the world
congress and I hope they do so.  A lot of money of TS is being spent to
travel to Italy and best use should be made of the opportunity.
