Subject: Theos-World World  Congress in Italy 

Has anyone heard anything more about the World  Congress scheduled in July 

The Italian website has the  following info: 

âThe tenth World Congress of the Theosophical Society  will take place in 
Rome, Italy, from 10th to 15th July 2010, focusing on  the following 
âUniversal Brotherhood without any distinctions: a  path towards awarenessâ

The subject is closely related to the history  and activity of the 
Theosophical Society and to its previous nine World  Congresses which have 
always offered great opportunities to scholars from  all over the world to 
meet, to study, to share ideas and points of view.â  

Of course, there is also an expensive Italian tour after the congress  
most ordinary theosophists cannot afford. 

While it is good  that all the scholars from all over the world can meet, 
study and share  ideas and points of view. 

What seems to be missing is the current sad  situation in TS in most 
countries where the membership is either frozen or  shrinking and in some 
section such as in the American Section, lodges  getting their charters 
cancelled or withdrawn, setting up an sad trend. In  addition we have seen 
the disunity and cleavage indicated in the 2008  election, followup 
to disenfranchise members around the world and  the 2008 GC meeting and the 
silence from the leaders around the world not  telling their members what 
they are doing anything to address the above  serious basic issues. 

We have had all the scholars, leaders,  occultists, professors, politicians 
etc. all highly dedicated theosophists  heading the sections with poor 
in respect of membership growth. One  wonders why no leader is talking 
this simple problem and if it is  not addressed, we may be seeing sections 
disappearing in countries outside  India in our life time. Is this the 
leaders want to happen and if so who  gets all the mon_ey in the treasury 
the valuable real estate sections  and lodges own. 

Added to all the above is the continued lack of  transparency in the TS 
sections, which no one seems to think about. Let us  not forget the warning 
in the 1900 letter about the transparency issue.  

While the above may be a call in the wilderness, I do not think  keeping 
quiet is not a good option to theosophists under the current  conditions. 
us call and talk to our leaders and find out what is it  they are doing 
the above serious issues.
