ULT @ LA Times Festival of Books 2014

Students from ULT LA participated in the Los Angeles Times’ Festival of Books 2014 at the University of Southern California in support of the publication of The Secret Doctrine Dialogues: H.P. Blavatsky Talks with Students.

Dozens of students staffed the booth in two, eight-hour days on April 12 & 13 and we had many great conversations with interested inquirers. We all think the weekend was a great success.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth and we look forward to seeing you again!

 

 

Judge Day 2014

William Quan Judge
(April 13, 1851 – March 21, 1896)

THE Masters once wrote that we should not be thinking on our good or bad Karma, but should do our duty on every hand and at every opportunity, unmindful of what may result to us… We are all bound up together in one coil of Karma and should ever strive by good acts, good thoughts and high aspirations, to lift a little of the world’s heavy Karma, of which our own is a part. Indeed, no man has any Karma of his own unshared by others; we share each one in the common Karma, and the sooner we perceive this and act accordingly the better it will be for us and for the world.

The Vahan, August 1, 1891

William Quan Judge was born in Dublin, Ireland, on April 13, 1851. His family emigrated in 1864 to New York where he specialized in corporate law (New York State Bar, 1872). A co-founder with H. P. Blavatsky and Henry S. Olcott of The Theosophical Society in 1875, he later became General Secretary of its American Section and Vice President of the International Society. In this capacity he organized and presided over the Theosophical Congress at the World’s Parliament of Religions held in Chicago during the 1893 Columbian Exposition. Through his writing and extensive lecturing around the United States, he helped make theosophy known and respected. He died in New York City on March 21, 1896 at the age of 44. (via The Theosophical Society, Pasadena)

Always loved and remembered, ULT lodges around the world observe March 21st as “Judge Day”.
