Study it very carefully as it helps all.
Love and best wishes,
UNITED LODGE OF THEOSOPHISTS
The policy of this Lodge is independent devotion to the cause of Theosophy,
without professing attachment to any Theosophical organization. It is loyal
to the great Founders of the Theosophical Movement, but does not concern
itself with dissensions or differences of individual opinion.
The work it has on hand and the end it keeps in view are too absorbing and
too lofty to leave it the time or inclination to take part in side issues.
That work and that end is the dissemination of the Fundamental Principles of
the Philosophy of Theosophy, and the exemplification in practice of those
principles, through a truer realization of the SELF; a profounder conviction
of Universal Brotherhood.
It holds that the unassailable basis for union among Theosophists, wherever
and however situated, is "similarity of aim, purpose and teaching," and
therefore has neither Constitution, By-Laws nor Officers, the sole bond
between its Associates being that basis. And it aims to disseminate this
idea among Theosophists in the furtherance of Unity.
It regards as Theosophists all who are engaged in the true service of
Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, condition or
It welcomes to its Association all those who are in accord with its declared
purposes and who desire to fit themselves, by study and otherwise, to be the
better able to help and teach others.
"THE TRUE THEOSOPHIST BELONGS TO NO CULT OR SECT,
YET BELONGS TO EACH AND ALL."
The following is the form signed by Associates of the United Lodge of
Being in sympathy with the purposes of this Lodge, as set forth in its
"Declaration," I hereby record my desire to be enrolled as an Associate, it
being understood that such association calls for no obligation on my part,
other than that which 1, myself, determine.

Subject: Re: WW II NOT QUITE FINISHED
I read someplace very recently that theosophists belong to no
particular religion, but to all.
In my opinion I can be a Christian,
a Jewish, a Hindu, a Buddhist...without any problem. That doesn't
mean that I accept any dogmas, but I interpret every symbol my own
way. For example Christ is not a historical individual, but it is our
Sixth principle. The Holy Grail is not a historical relic, but it is
the Self. And so on...
There is room in Theosophy for every honest and fraternal belief from
any religion, and so, any person who professes that belief.
After all, we are supposed to believe in Universal Brotherhood.
Amused by the discussion,

Now you are suggesting that HPB was a Liberal Catholic! It was her
words I quoted, not mine. I am starting to think that you are
perhaps a fundamentalist theosophist, as you take what you want
from the teaching and abandon what doesn't fit your personal point
For the record, I get the innuendo, group me as a liberal catholic
and you have the moral justification for tearing me and everyone
else who opposes your opinion, to the rank of heretic.
I guess Liberal Catholic people find it difficult to understand the
WW II. I wonder why. Perhaps they see "God" in Hitler, as the Pope
Pius XII seemed to do.
