Dear Igani,

I imagine that the management of the world is hard and extensive work 
and that Hierarchy, as every good father, would like to see that we 
will grow up and will be able to take our share of this work and 
begin to settle our own mutual relations in a fraternal manner by 

So, my suggestion would be: if there is interest for the theosophical 
work in your area then form a lodge and start to promote the 
theosophy. Don't wait anybody! None can do the work for you! And you 
will for sure get all the help you need on this mail list. 

It is a theosophical lodge which is actually the essential unit and 
the foundation of all theosophical work around the world.

Transformation is the matter of each individual. 

We don't need a Watch Tower but many Beacons of Light.

Warmest regards,

transformed, leadership will be chosen by the Hierarchy and there 
would be no questioning.
