Articles about Theosophy

There are now over 200 articles on this website, relating to all aspects of Theosophy and the Theosophical Movement. If any of these articles are of interest or help to you, please consider sharing them with others (whether on Facebook, by e-mail, Twitter, or any other means) so that as many people as possible can benefit from these truths.

We must emphasise, however, that the best and most effective way to advance on the path of deeper spirituality presented in Theosophy is of course by reading, studying, practising, and meditating on the original source teachings for ourselves. These articles are in no way intended to take the place of the writings of H.P. Blavatsky and William Q. Judge or the Masters but are instead designed to point towards those and to encourage and inspire all to approach and enter the Ocean of Theosophy.

The links to the vast majority of the articles are listed here under their relevant categories. Depending on the nature and content of the article you may notice it in more than one category. We hope you will find them interesting and beneficial.
