Elvira Carbonell Letter, December 19, 2007

Below is the letter of Elvira Carbonell to Ricardo Lindemann, National
President of the TS in Brazil and General Council member of the Society,
received on 19 December 2007 by email.


Dear General Council member, Mr Lindemann:

Since there has been uncertainty about the state of our President's health
and our Vice-President's willingness and ability to accept nominations for
the upcoming Presidential election, several of us at Adyar feel the need to
write to members of the General Council to share the following information.

Many of us at Adyar are concerned that our President will be putting an
unnecessary burden on herself and her prospects for continued recovery if
she runs for another term. Because of our deep regard for her and the
Society, we would like to see her live as long as possible as a wise counsel
and guide to whoever gets elected as the next President of the Theosophical

We have learned that our Vice-President has been asked if he will accept
nominations, and have confirmation from him that although he is not eager to
run for President, he will do what seems to be in the best interest of the
Society when the time comes, and he will accept nominations. We have also
received confirmation from him that he feels Adyar has to remain the
international Headquarters of the TS, for both practical and symbolical

We hope that others who are qualified and have the best interest of the
Society at heart will make themselves available as nominees in a
non-adversarial spirit, as having several candidates on the ballot will
ensure a wider choice of experience and abilities, which can only benefit
our Society.

Fraternally yours,

Ms Elvira Carbonell Theosophical Society, Adyar, India
