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 Theosophic life. The compilation provides a rich source of handy reference material and comments of wisdom on a wide range of subjects – social, geographical, environmental, and spiritual, among others – that rouse the reader to a better awareness and involvement in the world around us. This book is an imprint of the Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar, and is imported from India.
