135 Years of Theosophy

Radha Burnier, President of Theosophical Society, speaks at the
commemoration of the 135 anniversary of the Society held at its headquarters at Adyar,
Chennai, India, on Wednesday. In the background are statues of Blavatsky and Olcott.

Theosophical events may not be news elsewhere in the world, but in India it can still make the papers. The Hindu newspaper for November 18 carries a report of an event at the International Headquarters of the Theosophical Society at Adyar in Chennai (Madras). November 17 was the 135 anniversary of the Theosophical Society, and after mentioning the words of Radha Burnier on the unity and brotherhood the organization stood for, the paper noted: Over a hundred theosophists paid floral tribute to the statues of the founders, Madame Blavatsky and Colonel Olcott, at the Headquarters Hall in the society's premises in Adyar.
