Principles of Theosophical Work

By Iqbal Kishen Taimni (1898–1978).

171 Pages | 1991 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170591686.

The members of the Theosophical Society are spread throughout the world. In order to organize the Society’s work efficiently, it is imperative that the members have a clear understanding of its aims and the general principles, that should guide them in planning and execution of their work.

This book fulfils this requirement admirably, by listening the activities and their objectives in great detail, and suggesting ways and means of achieving them in an efficient manner. It lays down the qualifications and preparation of a Theosophical worker. It lists the different kinds of work at the National Section level, the Theosophical training centre level and Lodge level, and how each of these need to be organized.

From Chapter 1 – ‘The Divine Plan and the Theosophical Society’ (p. 5 & 6):

” This (Theosophical) Movement has at least three well-defined, though unspecified functions in the present times. These may be stated as follows:

  1. To give to humanity certain deeper truths of life, which are needed for taking the next step in human evolution.
  2. To instil certain universal guiding principles like Brotherhood into the minds of people in general, so that it may become possible to usher in a better world order.
  3. To provide agents in the outer world, who understand the Plan in a general way and can thus consciously cooperate with the Elder Brethren in the work, which they are doing for the betterment of the human race.

It has thus be seen that the founding of the Theosophical Society is part of a definite move to lift a corner of the veil, which has hidden so far from humanity life’s deeper mysteries and those, who hold the keys to these mysteries. “

The Real Work of the Theosophical Society

’22 Pages | First edition 1970, first reprint 1993 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

The Theosphical Society was founded at New York on 17 November 1875. Its three objects are:

  1. To form a nucleus of Universal Brotherhood of Humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
  2. To encourage the study of Comparative Religion, Philosophy and Science.
  3. To investigate unexplained Laws of Nature and the powers latent in man.

No doctrine, no opinion, by whomsoever taught or held, is in any way binding on any member of the Society. Approval of its three objects is the sole condition of membership. Members of the Society hold that Truth should be sought by study, by reflection, by purity of life, by devotion to high ideals and that it is not a dogma to be imposed by any authority. The members are bound together not by the profession of a common belief, but by a common search and aspiration for Truth.

The Hidden Side of Lodge Meetings

27 Pages | Reprinted 2002 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

C.W. Leadbeater (1854 – 1934) was a highly developed clairvoyant and the author of over thirty books on the spiritual life and the psychic nature of man.

” Naturally the work of every Lodge has its public side. There are lectures given to the public and opportunities offered for them to ask questions; all this is good and necessary. But every Lodge, which is worthy of the name, is also doing something far higher than any work on the physical plane, and this higher work can only be done in its own primary meetings. Furthermore, it can be done only if these meetings are properly conducted and entirely harmonious. ” – page 2.
