7. Practical Theosophy

Theosophy teaches that the object of doing our duty to humankind is not the attainment of personal happiness, but promoting the happiness of others. Happiness, or rather contentment, may indeed follow the performance of duty, but is not –and must not be – the motive for it. 


Duty is that which is due to humanity, to our fellow-men, neighbours, family, and especially that which we owe to all those who are poorer and more helpless than we are ourselves. This is a debt which, if left unpaid during life, leaves us spiritually insolvent and moral bankrupts in our next incarnation. Theosophy is the embodiment of duty.
