“Theosophy is a scientific religion and a religious science…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Friday 23rd January 2015 “Theosophy is that ocean of knowledge which spreads from shore to shore of the evolution of sentient beings; unfathomable in its deepest parts, it gives the greatest minds their fullest scope, yet, shallow enough at its shores, it will not overwhelm the understanding of a child.

“Capital punishment is both useless and injurious…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Friday 27th September 2013 “Capital punishment is both useless and injurious. It is as great an injustice to the world of beings left unexecuted as to the one so violently sent out of life.

Murders have not decreased. … Continue reading “Capital punishment is both useless and injurious…”

“Spread, explain, and illustrate the laws of Karma and Reincarnation…”
