The Theosophical Society was formed in 1875 to promote an understanding of Esoteric Teachings. These teachings, sometimes called 'The Ageless Wisdom', which was previously only available to initiates in Secret Orders has found expression down the ages in philosophies, sciences, mysticism, religions and the arts.
The Theosophical Society, now active in over 50 countries, is composed of people belonging to any belief system or to none, who have an aspiration for truth.
Central to the concerns of Theosophy is the desire to promote understanding and brotherhood among people of all races, creeds and philosophies. Devotion to truth, love for all living beings and commitment to a life of altruism marks the true Theosophical Path.
