Theosophical Workers' Training Camp
Two weeks training camp in May was directed by Dr N. C. Ramanujachary at Adyar. The camp was a sequence to the Fund created by (Late) Dr C. R. Kamath from Madras in 1959. The topics were on Theosophy, Theosophical Society, work in Lodges, and special stress was laid upon the Mission Statement and the latest resolution of the GC on Freedom and Responsibility of Lodges and Branches.
The participants numbered 25 from seven Federations of the Indian Section. Besides the Director there were six experienced theosophists who also provided support in lectures and presentations.
The Theosophical Publishing House has moved to Vasanta Press. Here we see the renovated space in the old factory room.
The renovation of Leadbeater Chambers has started. This is a long-term project. At the moment the focus is on strengthening the pillars.
