You’ve heard of Philosophy. You’ve heard of Theology. Now, you’re hearing about Theosophy.
This teaching is established on the simple truth that TRUTH is the supreme “religion” people should follow.
Yet, the “truth” may not be that simple or easy to discern.
What is Theosophy?
Theosophy is a doctrine of religious philosophy and metaphysics.
In 1875, the Theosophical Society was founded by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891), along with Henry Steel Olcott, William Quan Judge, among others. The teaching promotes that each religion has an aspect of the “truth,” and each attempts to help humans in perfecting the evolution of the species.
Theosophy also teaches that in their “higher selves” humans are immortal. But with their lower self, i.e. the physical, emotional and mental components, being unconscious of this state of immortality, humans decompose and die.
There were three clearly defined objectives delineated by the Theosophical Society as its purpose:
1. To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste, or color.
2. To encourage the study of Comparative Religion, Philosophy, and Science.
3. To investigate the unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in man.
