TS Election - American Candidate moving and living at Adyar
- One of the important issues that many members world-wide want to know from the American candidate is his plans to move to Adyar and live and work there.
Every President starting with Col Olcott lived and worked and died (except CJ) there even though they were frequently traveling on theosophical work. Many members want the International President to live and work from Adyar and hence most will never vote for a President who wants to live in the USA and operate remotely through a local Czar.
In the questionnaire developed with input from members world-wide and submitted to the candidates, this question was central. It was a very simple question and answer is also very simple - Yes or No.
To this day, what we have seen is the candidate keeping silent.
From the grapevine, it appears that during the December convention, some leaders brought this issue with the American candidate and we are all kept in the dark about the response they got. TS is not a secret organization and this is a central issue and should not the leaders share with voters what they found out? One wonders what is so sensitive about this information.
Here is a classic example of unnecessary secrecy that Master KH warned about in the 1900 letter to Annie Besant. Let the leaders be daring and disclose it and let the chips fall where they may.
