The World Around Us
The World Around Us
Description
Back of the Book

The world around us is a compilation of on the watch tower notes written by Mrs. Radha Burnier the president of the Theosophical society. These notes appeared as her editorial articles in the president’s official monthly journal The Theosophist between the years 1980 and 2007.

Mrs. Burnier’s careful observation and deep perception of the modern world and of human nature in general sensitively guides the reader to a better understanding of the Theosophical life. The compilation provides a rich source of handy reference material and comments of wisdom on a wide range of subjects social geographical environment and spiritual among others that rouse the reader to a better awareness and environment in the world around us.

 

Preface

This long awaited book is derived form the series of on the watch tower articles by Mrs. Radha Burnier President of the Theosophical society which were published in the Theosophist the Society’s international journal between 1980 and 2007. The validity and teachings of these articles continue to be appreciated by many members of the Theosophical society around the world. It is my personal experience that they appeal to the sense of what is right and what is wrong.

The articles have been gathered and arranged more or less subject wise in ten sections which partially overlap. Therefore the categorization should not be regarded as final or complete. A summary table of contents is given and at the beginning of each section more detailed contents are presented. In addition the year of publication of each article is provided.

As the head of a spiritual institution the author brings together her considerable experience which is reflected in this work. Perhaps few in the world could have synthesized so many insights form various fields combined with a deep understanding of human nature and its many possibilities. All the articles are presented in a lively readable manner this book is a rewarding compilation both delightful and instructive to the learning mind.

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to Mrs. Radha Burnier who kindly permitted me to compile and prepare this material as a book. My warmest thanks also go to the Theosophical publishing house the Adyar Library and research centre and the Editorial office of the Theosophical society.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.
W. J. Barnett, USA
My beautiful shawl arrived today. Thank you so much for this lovely shawl. Really, it is nicer than the photograph. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year and much prosperity in the New Year. With gratitude
Tom Anderson, Canada
An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
