Adyar Day

Adyar is the location of the International Headquarters of the Theosophical Society (TS) in Chennai (formerly named Madras), India. Adyar Day was founded in 1922 with the intent that on February 17 of every year theosophists around the world might turn their thoughts to the spiritual and administrative center of the Society. On this day homage is paid to the past leaders of the Society and donations are made towards the support of Adyar Headquarters. February 17 is also the anniversary of the death of the President-Founder Henry Steel OLCOTT.
