Dear friends

I just added the following on Wikipedias page for the Theosophical Society

A non-dogmatic and non-secterian Society
According to the Constitution of the Theosophical Society in the period 1875-1891 we find the following in the Constitution of January 1891: "No Fellow, Officer, or Council of the Theosophical Society, or of any Section or Branch thereof, shall promulgate or maintain any doctrinas being that advanced, or advocated by the Society. " [6] So one might say, that each member of the Theosophical Society forwarded their very own views, and they did not forward them on behalf of the Theosophical Society, a Society against dogmas and secterian behaviour. More info on this in the last reference.[7]

The below words about various beliefs among the Theosophists are only correct so far as they have been given by some of the members of the Theosophical Society is concerned. Those who did not follow such philosophical views as the below were free as members of the original Theosophical Society in 1875-1891. This was however changed somewhere after the year 1891 among many of the later offshoot branches and break-away groups, - and according to some also within the Theosophical Society itself, when affiliated branch the Order of the Star in the East was formulated around the year 1910 or 1911 and later. The Theosophical Society's website January 2011 says the following: "The Society imposes no belief on its members, who are united by a common search for Truth and desire to learn the mean-ing and purpose of existence through study, reflection, self-responsibility and loving service." [8]

Maybe it needs som polishing?
What do you readers think?

I have also created similar changes on the following wiki-pages:

But they seem to need approval first.

What about other wiki-pages in other countries?'
