Harishinghji, Rupsinghji

(1861-1903). Prince of Varal, Kathiawar, India, who joined the Theosophical Society (TS) about 1881; his wife also joined at the same time. He donated money to transport from a ruined temple, a gateway which was erected at ADYAR as a memorial to their daughter Kusumavati and son Ranjitsinhji. The Prince presented the carved doors of what was then the Adyar Library on which are depicted the “Ten Avataras of Vishnu.” An enlightened and progressive agriculturist, he incurred heavy debts to save the lives of his poor tenants. He was as a son to Henry S. OLCOTT, offering, in 1892, to support him. He died January 2, 1903.
