To all readers
My views are:
H. P. Blavatsky said the following in her "The Key to Theosophy"...Read in the below quote
And This might explain why we are in opposition to the use of calling the most highest Deity by the name of a teological Nightmare as well as a gigantic MALE.
As HPB said: "Our duty is to keep alive in man his spiritual intuitions."
"To oppose and counteract ―after due investigation and proof of its irrational nature―bigotry in every form, religious, scientific, or social, and cant above all, whether as religious sectarianism or as belief in miracles or anything supernatural. "
What are your views?
Here is a longer excerpt by H. P. Blavatsky of the same:
OUR OTHER OBJECTS
ENQUIRER. Will you now explain the methods by which you propose to carry out the second object?
THEOSOPHIST. To collect for the library at our head quarters of Adyar, Madras, (and by the Fellows of their Branches for their local libraries,) all the good works upon the world's religions that we can. To put into written form correct information upon the various ancient philosophies, traditions, and legends, and disseminate the same in such practicable ways as the translation and publication of original works of value, and extracts from and commentaries upon the same, or the oral instructions of persons learned in their respective departments.
ENQUIRER. And what about the third object, to develop in man his latent spiritual or psychic powers?
THEOSOPHIST. This has to be achieved also by means of publications, in those places where no lectures and personal teachings are possible. Our duty is to keep alive in man his spiritual intuitions. To oppose and counteract ―after due investigation and proof of its irrational nature―bigotry in every form, religious, scientific, or social, and cant above all, whether as religious sectarianism or as belief in miracles or anything supernatural. What we have to do is to seek to obtain knowledge of all the laws of nature, and to diffuse it. To encourage the study of those laws least understood by modern people, the so-called Occult Sciences, based on the true knowledge of nature, instead of, as at present, on superstitious beliefs based on blind faith and authority. Popular folk-lore and traditions, however fanciful at times, when sifted may lead to the discovery of long-lost, but important, secrets of nature. The Society, therefore, aims at pursuing this line of inquiry, in the hope of widening the field of scientific and philosophical observation. "
