Re: Can theos-talk look at the world?

Theosophy is altruism. If one is to understand Theosophy he must be 
engaged in actively helping others in a way his capacities permit, 
atleast something unselfishly for others. It depends on capacity of 
the individual how much he can do outside Theosophy. Annie Besant's 
capacities were so great that she not only handled outer 
administration of TS, established word-wide TS organization, headed 
ES, but also worked fot independence of India and there is a long 
list of activities through which she tried to help vast number of 
people. However it was only her genius could do. For us we can take 
smaller work for others.
Best regards.
