Thank you for the info. I have always liked Sri Wadia's STUDIES IN THE SECRET
DOCTINE, Volumes I and II, Also someone I knew attributed POINT OUT THE WAY to
P.B. Wadia's authorship. One of the regular students in the Washington ULT
Lodge, Jacob Regardie (brother of Israel Regardie), now deceased, would
delight in telling me that he often played tennis with Sri Wadia whenever he
came to town.

I had read that P.B. Wadia, Annie Besant And George Arundale were interned by
the British for agitating for Indian Independence and, upon their release,
they were given a hero's welcome in Madras, complete with parade.

I was in Bombay 17 years ago and I visited the Adyar TS compound in that city.
I was impressed by its size. There were a number of buildings there on the
grounds. I was taken on a tour of the main building. There were no meetings
going on at the time. Unfortunately, I was unable to visit the Bombay ULT and
the Institute of Culture (Sophia Wadia). I am returning to India in September
and perhaps I will be able make a stop in Bombay. If you could email me the
times of the meetings there I would appreciate it.

The present head of the Institute of World Culture will be speaking at the
Washington ULT on June 21st but I don't know if I'll be able to make it. His
name slips my mind for the moment.
