Hallo Pedro and all,
My views are:
I would rather ask:
Is it then allright or possible to call the society by the name The
Theosophical Society (Ie. Wisdom of the Gods) ???
Of course it is possible.
It is just necessary that we are taught the view upon the matter.
Phallicism - has no room within The Theosophical Society.
How we use each word and how we define them depends on our lofty needs.
The following is true about all humans:
Atma = Brahman
God defined as formlessness named Neti - Neti (ie. Not this, Not that - not
even Neti or Neti) is within all humans.
All humans transcend time, evolve and become fullfilled Avatars in one sense
or the other.
This is what I truely know.
All theosophical branches has the intention of following such a teaching.
The question is whether they are doing it.
If not - then I would like to know it.
M. Sufilight with a caring smile...

Subject: Theos-World a simple question
"Neither our philosophy nor ourselves believe in a God, least of all
in one whose pronoun necessitates a capital H. (...) Our doctrine
knows no compromises. It either affirms or denies, for it never
teaches but that which it knows to be the truth. Therefore, we deny
God both as philosophers and as Buddhists. We know there are
planetary and other spiritual lives, and we know there is in our
system no such thing as God, either personal or impersonal. Parabrahm
is not a God, but absolute immutable law, and Iswar is the effect of
Avidya and Maya, ignorance based upon the great delusion. The
word "God" was invented to designate the unknown cause of those
effects which man has either admired or dreaded without understanding
them, and since we claim and that we are able to prove what we claim -
- i.e. the knowledge of that cause and causes we are in a position to
maintain there is no God or Gods behind them."
In view of the statement above, by one of HPB's Teachers, can Jews,
Christians and Muslins be theosophists?
