THEOSOPHY AROUND THE WORLD
In October, 10 people from all across the USA met in Chengdu, China to begin a pilgrimage in Tibet-Blavatsky's Tibet-sponsored by the TSA. The year before 47 pilgrims had made a similar journey. Although six members of our group were members of the Theosophical Society and knew something of HPB's life and travels, everyone came as pilgrims-people reverently making a journey to a sacred place. The clear focus for all of us was Tibet's spiritual dimension and a spiritual tradition, which for 1500 years has produced an unbroken lineage of enlightened masters, sages, and saints. It continues to influence spiritual seekers today with its profound teachings and its potential for enlightenment. Read more

ELECTION DAY ON NOVEMBER 4, 2008
by Janet Kerschner
I have a few comments for those who are interested in the TSA headquarters as a polling place. A total of 473 people turned out to vote in our building, and the voting process went very smoothly. Many of the voters had not been on our property before, and staff members answered many questions about the building and the organization. I spoke to several people who took brochures and planned to return on another day to visit the library and grounds. I feel that we performed a useful service to our community and democracy by allowing our classroom to be used in this way, and I hope we offer use of our facilities again.

"Grow as the flower grows, unconsciously, but eagerly anxious to open its soul to the air. So must you press forward to open your soul to the eternal. But it must be the eternal that draws forth your strength and beauty, not desire of growth. For in the one case you develop in the luxuriance of purity, in the other you harden by the forcible passion for personal stature."
- Light on the Path, Mabel Collins
