C. Jinarajadasa (1875- 1953) was a prominent figure in the Theosophical Society, an international organization originally founded by Helena Blavatsky and other mystics with the aim of understanding universal wisdom for spiritual enlightenment. Born to Sri Lankan parents in England, he would eventually become one of the most important figures in its history. As he was known, Jina served as president of the Theosophical Society between 1945 and 1952 and helped lay the foundation for many successful international projects such as cross-cultural studies and interfaith initiatives. His advocacy of justice and human rights inspired the promulgation of progressive causes that remained relevant years after his death. Legacy wise, Jina will be remembered as an early pioneer who strived tirelessly to bridge gaps among people through compassion and understanding.
