In a recent blog Dr. Ramanujachari drew attention to a letter T Subba Rao, well known theosophist, wrote to HPB on the topic of Occult School of South India and Trans Himalayan one. While few of the Adepts of both traditions are known to the public, thanks to the writings of theosophical authors, a basic question that we may want to inquire is this - Surely there should be ‘other’ traditions from other parts of the world such as the China, Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa.…

In all online forums, frequently we come across long posts. Indeed it is understandable that complex ideas and situations need explanations which tend to end up as a long post.
Many who browse forums as well as on maillists, have limited amount of time to read and review posts and emails of interest. This is simply a factual matter since many have daytime jobs and they spend time on Internet after hours. Many tend to ignore long posts due to time constraints.
In the above…
The work done by theosophists in India on the social aspects had immense effect on how theosophists and Theosophical Society is viewed in India. Many theosophists were involved not in speculation of what is going on in unseen world and occult side of things, but were active in improving the conditions of the masses. Why in the recent decades we do not hear of such interests in theosophists should be of concern to everyone. Unless our activities affect our fellow men and women and children,…Continue
Recently we received complaints from users of our website that some of the items do not work properly on iPads even though they are ok on desktops and notebooks.
Our technical support people do not have iPads to test and fix the working of the website. Hence we are looking for donation of iPads 2 and 3 or donation of money to buy iPads.
Theosophy Network is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, and hence all donations are tax deductible

One of the things that baffles newbees as well as long-time students of theosophy, is the confused definitions of theosophy. When one tries to discuss or debate the subject, we may end up parting with deep disagreements because each one of us may have been introduced to theosophy by various lineages, each clinging to certain viewpoints. HPB seems to have forseen this problem and addressed this to the second annual convention of the American Section. She stated:
In the early theosophical literature, there are many references to cycles and how entire universe is governed by cycles. I just ran into one of the most interesting articles about cycles. Here is the link. Some of you may enjoy it.

Something that is to be noticed is the author’s acknowledgement of the…
Acrobat PDF is the digital format most widely used for storage and distribution of books, publications and other documents. It can be displayed and printed in all operating systems.
When a pdf file is created either out of a program such as Word or output by a scanner they can be very large. It is highly desirable to reduce the size of the pdf file as well as make it compatible with earlier versions of Acrobat Reader. The current version of full Acrobat program has an option to…Continue

Theosophists world over remember November 17th the day Theosophical Society was founded in NY in 1875. On this day, theosophists remember the contributions of the Founders - HPB and HSO, the fruits of their labor many have enjoyed. Anyone who has been touched by theosophical tenets would vouch that their outlook on life and those of the fellow men and women have dramatically changed for ever. As one of the Inner Founders said “Ingratitude is not one of our vices,”, let us remember our…Continue
