Theosophical Society in the Philippines
Theosophy is not a religion. The term has been used as an expression of the ageless wisdom of life that has existed since time immemorial and which maybe found in the great spiritual traditions in the world. Its worldwide view is founded on universal oneness amidst apparent diversities, the reality of inner planes and inner laws of nature, and the existence of the path to self-realization and the attainment of each individual's highest spiritual potentials. As a way of life, it promotes understanding, unity, respect for all religious traditions, compasionate altruism and the living of the higher life.
From the Theosophical Digest
The Theosophical Society is a nonsectarian, undogmatic, worldwide organization devoted to human solidarity, cultural understanding, and self-development. It seeks to bring people together; to reconcile the religions, philosophies, and sciences of both East and West; and to increase awareness of the inner reality inherent in every human being.
Its three declared objects are:
· To form a nucleus of the universal brotherhood of humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste, or color.
· To encourage the comparative study of religion, philosophy, and science.
· To investigate unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in humanity.
