My sympathy to the Narada Lodge and all true 
Blavatsky students the world over!

True theosophists are persecuted today by the 
"Theosophical Society" similary to the true 
Christian by the "Christian church"!
What can be done to help the rebels against 
the dark Empire?

Writing a petition to Wheaton, signed by 
thousands of Adyar members and independent 
A public campaign? Broadsheets in the 
Cancel the membership?

property/funds that are meant to be
used to further interests of theosophy being 
expended on attoneys. Anytime
one gets into litigation, both parties loose.
