The TS is a spiritual Society, founded in 1875. The main goal for the founders was to reformulate the ancient theosophical concepts in order to bring about a change in the dogmatic and materialistic mind set of humanity. The Theosophical Society does not have any dogmas or common believes which set people apart. It offers thought provoking hypotheses or concepts which can help each person to better understand themselves and their place in the universe. These concepts are windows on the deeper meaning of life, not revealed truths that must be accepted.
The Theosophical Society welcomes seekers belonging to any religion or to none, who are in sympathy with its Three Objects.
The Three Objects of The Theosophical Society
1. To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
2. To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.
3. To investigate the unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in the human being.
Members of the TS
Members of the TS are united by a common search and aspiration for Truth – or Divine Wisdom – in their lives, not by a common set of beliefs. Members often refer to themselves as “seekers for truth”. This truth can only be explored in total freedom through each own spiritual path.
