Welcome to the Theosophical Society in England

emblem-separator-1The word Theosophy  has been used for many centuries, it is of Greek origin meaning Wisdom of the Gods (theo – of Gods, sophia– wisdom). Wisdom cannot be enclosed within words, it is a Truth which must be discovered and experienced by each one for themselves. Theosophy, sometimes known as the Ageless Wisdom, is the Light which shines through the many coloured lamps of religion. It is the thread of truth in scriptures, creeds, symbols, myths and rituals. Divine Wisdom is One, the paths towards it are many.

The Theosophical Society, founded in 1875, is a worldwide body whose primary object is Universal Brotherhood without distinction based on the realization that life, and all its diverse forms, human and non-human, is indivisibly One.
The Society imposes no belief on its members, who are united by a common search for Truth and desire to learn the meaning and purpose of existence through study, reflection, self-responsibility, and loving service.
Theosophy is the wisdom underlying all religions when they are stripped of accretions and superstitions. It offers a philosophy which renders life intelligible and demonstrates that justice and love guide the cosmos. Its teachings aid the unfoldment of the latent spiritual nature in the human being.

    Yoga Vasistha is considered one of the most important texts of the ancient Vedantic philosophy and is a very engaging one. It describes Prince Rama’s frustration with the life, the world and human suffering, and his desire for liberation.
