The World Around Us by Mrs Radha Burnier, international President of the TS, embodies an important aspect of her literary legacy and spans almost thirty years of thoughtful and insightful editorials in the Society’s international journal, The Theosophist, founded by Madame Blavatsky in Bombay in 1879. In it she presents a deep, insightful and objective assessment of the condition of humanity at the present time and shows, with vigour and intellectual clarity, how a parochial and limited mindset prevents humanity from moving forward in its evolutionary journey. Her book is a timely appeal for a wider vision of life and its relationships as well as for compassion for all the creatures that share with us this beautiful earth.

Radha Burnier became 7th international President of the Theosophical Society in 1980, following the lead of her father, N. Sri Ram, who was the 5th President, and close associate of Annie Besant. Mrs. Burnier had previously served in many capacities, including Director of the research and publications of the Adyar Library and Research Centre from 1959-1979. She holds a Master's degree in Sanskrit from the Benares Hindu University, and an honorary Doctor of Literature degree from Nagarjuna University. She has lectured all over the world on Theosophical and cultural topics, and both her talks and writings are known for their clarity of thought and depth of vision.
