Theosophy stands for knowledge of truth.  It is a synthesis of Science, Religion and Philosophy, and throws a flood of light on all these areas of knowledge.  It is an ancient tradition which has shown that by exploring the depths of our own nature we are able to reach an experience of Truth – an understanding of that Wisdom which is the seat of all spiritual knowledge.

Fundamental Unity of all People

We find there are many uniting principles in all the great religions, esoteric teachings, philosophies and sciences of the world, and a study of Theosophy shows there is a fundamental unity between all people.  We are all one family.

The Foundation encourages an appreciation of the unity of all people and is committed to a search for truth in all things, mutual understanding and freedom of thought.  Mankind is not yet perfect and whilst there is unrest in the world, it is necessary to strive to bridge the gap and learn to live in harmony with one another.
