Listening to Adyar: A Vibrant Centre with Multiple Voices

Catalina Isaza Cantor – Colombia, India

The Society CAT 2

Statues of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and Henry Steel Olcott in Adyar's Headquarters building

It is a pleasure and an honor to celebrate Adyar Day in Adyar itself, the international headquarters of the Theosophical Society (TS), and to be able to share some thoughts about the deep imprint that this place generates. Living and working in Adyar (and even visiting the place for a period of time) are not only great pleasures but also opportunities for transformation. Once one becomes a member of the TS, the name Adyar becomes familiar thanks to anecdotes from other members, documentaries, writings, images, and so on. Once we begin to learn more about the place, a deep affection for it is born, as well as a yearning to visit this sanctuary some day.

Editorial - Being free … (really)

Jan Nicolaas Kind – Brazil

The Society Editorial 2 BEING FREE 220

I wear a mask and use it not to protect myself, but to protect others. I am free because now I can read or re-read all those amazing books I hardly touched because I told myself there was no time. For sure, free I am, because I concluded that the pandemic is climate change in a pressure cooker.

Free because I could go inward, in the quiet surroundings of my meditation room and garden, while trying to connect with all the goodness that still surrounds us on this planet. Really free, because instead of going to my favorite vegan restaurant, I now experiment with various delicious recipes myself, didn’t know the dishes would turn out so well.
