Books by and about Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
Theosophy has been called the Wisdom Religion. The word stems from the Greek words “theos” (God) and “Sophia” (Wisdom) and refers to the “Wisdom of the Gods”. In the 19th century Helena Blavatsky’s work, with the help of others, was to reveal a portion of this wisdom tradition to the world. Our First Friday programs will focus on the themes in theosophy. Through the exploration of one theme per month, we offer you the opportunity to gain greater depth about the wisdom tradition.
The Theosophical Society maintains the right of individual freedom of thought for every member. Those who join the Society are not asked to give up the teachings of their own faiths. No doctrine, no opinion, by whomsoever taught or held, is in any way binding on any member of the Society, and no teacher or writer has authority to impose opinions on others. All members are urged to defend and act upon these fundamental principles and also fearlessly to exercise their own right of liberty of thought and of expression within the limits of courtesy and consideration for others.
The TOS was founded to provide a framework in which people can engage in creative, practical and humanitarian action in a theosophical spirit. It offers opportunities for participation in activities promoting the First Object of the Theosophical Society - To form a nucleus of a universal brotherhood of humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
The Theosophical Order of Service is international in scope, autonomous in each country, and organized to meet the needs of its own communities.
