Bringing to you Theosophical Resources

Theosophy World is a collection of Theosophical resources available for those researching a specific topic, wanting to find information, how to get information or for those wishing to put together programmes, presentations or contact people who are doing work in these areas. The intention is to make material available on this website and easily accessed through several means.


Theosophical Society

The Theosophical Society, while reserving for each member full freedom to interpret those teachings known as Theosophy, is dedicated to preserving and realizing the ageless wisdom, which embodies both a worldview and a vision of human self-transformation.

This tradition is founded upon certain fundamental propositions:

·        The universe and all that exists within it are one interrelated and interdependent whole.

·        Every existent being-from atom to galaxy-is rooted in the same universal, life-creating Reality.  This Reality is all pervasive but it can never be summed up in its parts, since it transcends all its expressions.  It reveals itself in the purposeful, ordered, and meaningful processes of nature as well as in the deepest recesses of the mind and spirit.

·        Recognition of the unique value of every living being expresses itself in reverence for life, compassion for all, sympathy with the need of all individuals to find truth for themselves, and respect for all religious traditions.  The ways in which these ideals become realities in individual life are both the privileged choice and the responsible act of every human being.

Central to the concerns of theosophy is the desire to promote understanding and unity among people of all races, nationalities, philosophies, and religions.  Therefore, all people, whatever their race, creed, sex, caste, or colour, are invited to participate equally in the life and work of the Society.  The Theosophical Society imposes no dogmas, but points toward the source of unity behind all differences.  Devotion to truth, love for all living beings, and commitment to a life of active altruism are the marks of the true Theosophist.

The following set of instructions were given by Madame Blavatsky,  a Principal Co-Founder of the Theosophical Society, to some of her earnest students in London in 1888:

Magazine Article: Theosophy in Australia, March 2001

“Theosophy … is the fixed eternal sun, and its Society an evanescent comet trying to settle in an orbit to become a planet, ever revolving within the attraction of the sun of truth.” — H.P. Blavatsky

Article by Pablo Sender.

In an article by Cristian Conen, published in The Theosophist in December 2014, he began to examine the work of the Theosophical Society (TS) based on ideas expressed by the late International President, Radha Burnier. Continuing this inquiry, particularly in connection with work in the field of spiritual education, we may ask: what kind of public programmes should TS offer in order to help the spiritual growth of humanity?


The Theosophical Society has been around for 139 years. But its growth as an organisation has been relatively stagnant in the past more than half a century. Its membership has been declining since 1928 when it had a peak membership of 45,000, down to about 26,000 today. Since 1928, world population has increased three and a half times. Every year, there are 80,000,000 people who are born. If the message of theosophy reaches only 100,000 new people per year, it will take us 800 years before we will reach the number of new people born in one year alone. To reach the population increase of just 2 years, it will take us 1,600 years. We will see that at such a rate, the Theosophical Society will become more and more irrelevant to the changes happening in the world.

The Theosophical Society, as far as I am aware, has no view on this subject, however it is one worth exploring and I present some ideas below in this direction.

Definition: “Homosexuality, sexual interest in and attraction to members of one’s own sex. The term ‘gay’ is frequently used as a synonym for homosexual; female homosexuality is often referred to as lesbianism.”i

Centres around the World

There are various theosophical centers around the world that run courses, meditation sessions, retreats, etc. Here is a list of some of them:

The Emblem of the Theosophical Society is composed of a number of symbols, all of which have been used from very ancient times to express profound spiritual and philosophical concepts about the human being and the universe. They are found in a variety of forms in the great religions of the world and their universality is further shown by their appearance in widely separated cultures.  Each symbol studied separately will yield a wealth of understanding. 

Taken together, as in this emblem, they suggest a vast evolutionary process embracing the whole of nature, physical and spiritual and their study may lead the serious inquirer to contemplate some of the deepest mysteries of existence.

This section lists other theosophical sites that provide useful resources.
