I had occasion to e-mail back & forth with John Algeo. I thought his idea of
what should and should not get paid for in the course of teaching Theosophy
makes sense. I also thought some of you'd be interested in knowing what he
thinks on the subject, so I'm sending it on.
>>of course we do not (and in general no one should) take personal payment
for doing Theosophical work such as lecturing. But the Society, Lodges, etc.
>>bills to pay for quarters, etc. It is not realistic not to ask those
>>who attend meetings to help with the cost of putting them on. Moreover,
>>helping with the costs is a form of service and of karma-yoga!
>>All best, John.
