Mrs. Radha Burnier served five terms as the President of the Theosophical Society, having taken office as the seventh President in 1980. The World Around Us is a compilation of Burnier's 'On The Watch-Tower' notes, which appeared as her editorial articles in The President's official monthly Journal The Theosophist between the years 1980 and 2007. The validity and teachings of these articles continue to be appreciated by many members of the Theosophical Society around the world.

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.

From Chapter 1 - 'Theosophy and the Theosophical Society' (p. 10):

" No Wisdom from above descends on anyone save on leaving every atom of selfishness or desire for personal ends. Nature gives her innermost secrets and imparts true Wisdom only to him or her, who seeks truth for its own sake and craves for knowledge in order to confer benefits on others, not on his or her own unimportant personality. "

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.
