an opportunity to meet together & discuss theosophy at a deeper level
Forum for TS Members at Melbourne Lodge
We couldn't resist using the above image of Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama of Tibet in conversation with President Barack Obama, who does happen to bear a striking resemblance to the President of the Theosophical Society, Mr Tim Boyd; although, as far as we know, President Obama has no significant connection with the TS.
The young Dalai Lama however visited the international headquarters of the Theosophical Society (Adyar) on several occasions, including in 1957 and 1959. In 1990, His Holiness delivered the Besant Lecture to the international convention at Adyar.
In 2011, at the invitation of Tim Boyd, the Dalai Lama paid us the great honour of joining the Theosophical Society. They are shown below photographed during a series of fundraising events that were sponsored by the Theosophical Society in America, in Chicago in 2011 (Image: Theosophical Society in America Archive via https://theosophy.wiki/en/Tenzin_Gyatso,_the_XIV_Dalai_Lama).
