A Lonely Disciple - T. Subba Row

T. Subba Row (1856-90) was an earlier member of the Theosophical Society.  He was greatly impressed by the work of Madame Blavatsky’s “Isis Unveiled”, and entered into correspondence with her. His article “The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac” was written and published in the monthly journal “The Theosophist”, well before he formally joined as a member. He was instrumental for the visit of the Founders to Madras (now Chennai) and the formulation of the Society’s policies later on.

 

Having traced his Life and Work in a span of few years (1881-90) in two slim volumes, viz. “A Lonely Disciple” and “An Enduring Philosopher”, I am now working on his Ten Letters to his associates and am also attempting to abridge his “Lectures on Bhagavad-Gita”, which hopefully will be ready during the current year. His writings and philosophy need a close, insightful look.

 

It is rejoicing news that  www.Esoteric-Philosophy.com , www.Theosophyonline.com   and their associated websites are placing the book  “A Lonely Disciple”  on digital mode, so that the contents are accessible to all interested in the history of the early days of the Movement  and the pristine character of its philosophy. The “Forgotten pages” need revival and our continued attention.
