(15 November 1923 – 31 October 2013)
The TS-Adyar commemorated the passing of its former international president on the 31st of October. She was a remarkable woman.
“Theosophy is not a matter of having ideas about brotherhood, reincarnation or karma. All these ideas become stale, achieve nothing, and decay when communicated. The concept of brotherhood is based on the truth of unbreakable harmony, the music of the eternal energy we spoke about. That harmony cannot be heard by a self-enclosed mind full of its own noise. Something must break down in that mind. The scientist Yukawa (a Japanese theoretical physicist) noted that prior to creativity there must be a struggle within oneself, a breaking down of the egotistic composition of the mind. When the mind is open, free, perceptive, it sees brotherhood as a truth.”
From Radha Burnier's New Light on Old Ideas
