NEWS FROM THE INTERNATIONAL SECRETARY – TS ADYAR
RESPECTING LIFE AT ADYAR
It goes along with the principles of Theosophy to respect life in all forms, in the human, animal, and plant kingdoms. Consciousness is evolving at every stage and we need to care about all life in oneness, the basis of which is respect. That care is taken seriously in practical life at Adyar. There are many examples, but the following two have raised recent questions.

Adyar is a Nature sanctuary, which is carefully looked after. Its beauty is well known. Nature thrives year by year during the monsoon, the insects and ants flourish, thickets increase, and trees get overgrown and crowded. Forests need care as well, but no trees are cut due to anyone’s whim. Individual buildings and houses begin to get hidden and taken over by trees, the branches reach the walls and enter through windows, giving ants nice pathways into the structures. The Garden Department has much work in Adyar and they do their best in keeping the many roads and views sufficiently open. Especially before Convention time, the main areas are cleaned and cleared.
