The Future? of the
Adyar Theosophical Society
But Vote Anyway
With the General Council remaining
silent over the allegations of irregularities in the current presidential
election, it looks like the idea of a valid and trusted election has been
dumped in favour of a quiet life. Can the Adyar Theosophical Society really
continue with a ďletís pretend it isnít happeningĒ attitude in the executive
governing body? The emergence of doubts over the integrity of the electoral
process has revealed a Society with a governing body that is not only incapable
of speaking to the members, but also canít even assert its authority as the
For decades, Radha Burnier told the
timid and cowering General Council what it could and couldn't do, but since her
death the Council has been exposed as a management incapable of managing, thus
leaving the Theosophical Society dangerously vulnerable to predators. The General
Council has neither a strategy to deal with the issues facing the Society, nor
the will to govern. On current form, it will stand there in silence while the
members are cheated out of their Society. Expecting members to participate in,
and accept the result of, a suspect election reaches new heights of betrayal.
Neither presidential candidate has
spoken up regarding this vitally important issue of election irregularities and
it must now be assumed that they are meekly complying with the General
Council's need for a quiet life. Perhaps their compliance to the General
Councilís wishes contributed to their nomination and they certainly havenít
disappointed their masters. Any senior official not making a stand on issues
now, is certainly not going to be capable of making a stand on anything after
The lack of an effective leadership and
the power struggle between the vested interests will be a major contributor to
the break-up of the Society. Former members will look back on the General
Council's failure to administer a credible election as a marker in the history
of the demise, and as a lost vital opportunity for the management to assert its
authority. Members have been badly let down by a General Council that has
shunned responsibility and hides itself away.
