The WISDOM-RELIGION was ever one, and being the last word of possible human knowledge, was, therefore, carefully preserved. It preceded by long ages the Alexandrian Theosophists, reached the modern, and will survive every other religion and philosophy.

Blavatsky's handful of big books are popular sources on Theosophy. Yet she & her friends also wrote many articles, such as;

Truth is Truth, regardless if it comes from a fool or a Saint.
It is universal and eternal.
And no man or institution has sole possession.

Quote:
Foreword to pamphlet #1 - "Is Theosophy a Religion?"
The contents of this pamphlet originally appeared in Lucifer for
November 1888 as the opening editorial.

Because of the differences of opinion at that time among Theosophists,
leading to dissensions in several cases, Theosophy and the Society through
which its teachings were being promulgated came in for much ridicule. Further,
because of the human weakness which transforms the spirit of enquiry into mere
belief, a pseudo-religious-scientific attitude of “we know it all and are the saved
and chosen” had sprung up among some students of Theosophy. To demolish
these and to restore the spirit of unity among the workers and revive openminded
honest search among the students, Η. P. Blavatsky wrote this memorable article.

Its facts and appeal are true to-day as then, and even more applicable to-day
than in 1888; for the noble science and philosophy has been degraded, and what
passes as Theosophy is a kind of childish mysticism, highly sectarian and
dogmatic. Madame Blavatsky refers to India as then (1888) showing some result
of Theosophical effort. Alas! Since her passing, perhaps in no country has the
name of Theosophy been so abjectly degraded and its teachings so twisted
beyond recognition as in this ancient land.

A cyclic readjustment is now taking place.

Some of the topics that demand the serious attention of the reader are:
1. Theosophy is not a religion.
2. How all religions are false and true.
3. Spiritualism as it is and as it should be.
4. Religion and Science can be reconciled.

BOMBAY

But you didn't add your take on it, just offered something to read, that indicates you are not interested in discussing anything.

Surely in these over 200 posts my "take on" Theosophy is clearly that of a supportive advocate. Ask a question and I will discuss.
