Theosophy

Three Tenants of Theosophy

  • To form a nucleus of the universal brotherhood of humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste, or colour.
  • To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy, and science.
  • To investigate the unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in man.

Theosophy, in its modern presentation, is a spiritual philosophy developed since the late 19th-century. Its major themes were originally described mainly (though not exclusively) by Helena Blavatsky (1831–91), co-founder of the Theosophical Society.

Blavatsky’s sprawling magnum opus, published in 1888 as The Secret Doctrine, is considered to be the major foundational work of modern Theosophy.
Contemporaries of Blavatsky as well as later theosophists also contributed to the development of Theosophy, producing works that at times expanded on the original concepts. Since its inception, and through doctrinal assimilation or divergence, Theosophy has also given rise to or influenced the development of other mystical, philosophical, and religious movements. As of 2011 Theosophy, through the Theosophical Society, remains an active philosophical school with presence in more than 70 countries around the world.
