The Theosophical organization: more needed now than ever before.

December 4, 2017 - By S. Ormerod

To form a nucleus of Universal Brotherhood without distinction of race, sexual orientation, belief, social position, or skin colour.* 

This is the first object of the Theosophical Society, an organization, formed in New York City, 1875. They were a diverse group of sincere people wishing to meet on a regular basis to discuss the newest discoveries regarding; comparative religion, science, ancient and occult texts and wisdom; the unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in man.

These ideals, questions, studies and experiments are as relevant now, 140 later, as they were then. The Theosophical organization still meets, all over the world, within a rainbow of diversity, however this first object still remains its mandate.

Organizations are dedicated to keeping the original theosophical literature in print and easily available to anyone, (at no cost on line), as well as many units of individual groups who are meeting, reading and studying and partaking in informative lectures. You can find information describing  the origins of all religions; the common denominator which links us together as one human family; the path of  purification through meditation, a clean life, and a dedicated search to help one’s fellow human beings.

“Behold the truth before you: a clean life, and open mind, a pure heart, and eager intellect, an unveiled spiritual perception, a brotherliness for one’s co-disciple, a readiness to give and receive advice and instruction, a loyal sense of duty to the Teacher, a willing obedience to the behests of Truth; once we have placed our confidence in an believe that Teacher to be in possession of it; a courageous endurance of personal injustice, a brave declaration of principles, a valiant defence of those who are unjustly attacked, and a constant eye to the ideal of human progression and perfection which the secret science (Gupta-Vidya) depicts – these are the golden stairs up the steps of which the learner may climb to the Temple of Divine Wisdom.”

*The original 1875 wording reads –  To form a nucleus of universal brotherhood without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
