THEOSOPHY literally means “Divine Wisdom.” It can be called Esoteric Philosophy – Esoteric Science – the Esoteric Doctrine – Occult Philosophy – Occult Science – the Sacred Science – the Secret Doctrine – Ancient Wisdom – Ageless Wisdom – Timeless Truth.
In the East it is called the Gupta Vidya, which can be translated as “Secret Knowledge” or “Secret Doctrine.” This hidden body of Knowledge is in the safe keeping of a relatively small number of individuals. They have been called the Masters of the Wisdom. They are Adepts and Initiates belonging to a hidden esoteric Brotherhood which guides and watches over the spiritual evolution and advancement of humanity.
In the 19th century, some Masters belonging to the Trans-Himalayan Brotherhood based in Tibet taught, trained, and prepared a Russian woman named Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) to go forth into the world to give out as much of that Teaching as was permitted. In so doing, Madame Blavatsky literally changed the face of world spirituality forever. The Theosophical Society which she founded was the first introduction of Eastern spirituality to the Western world.
Alongside teachings about such fundamentals as Karma, Reincarnation, and the Oneness of All Life, Blavatsky presented to the world certain esoteric spiritual teachings which had never been given out to the public before, such as those about the origin, nature, and future of Earth and humanity (including planetary chains, globes, rounds, root races etc.), Atlantis and Lemuria, the true details of the afterlife state and what happens between death and rebirth, the sevenfold nature of man, the true nature and system of evolution, and the birth, origins, and structure of the Universe.
The writings and teachings of H.P. Blavatsky have received endorsement and praise from numerous individuals including Mahatma Gandhi, D.T. Suzuki, Albert Einstein, the ninth Panchen Lama, and the present Dalai Lama.
Theosophy’s heartbeat and constant underlying theme is selfless service to humanity. It is a high and living spiritual philosophy which is to be KNOWN and LIVED. It has the effect of bringing about both an intellectual expansion and a deep and life changing spiritual awakening for those who study and practice it.
