Closed or Open Lodges

Closed or Open Lodges The Path, May, 1890 The Theosophical Society has never prohibited Private Branches. If five Members-at-large can exist separately, they can exist together; for they are no worse off when organized than when not. It is conceivable, moreover, that there may be special circumstances where publicity is undesirable—as where there is exceptional local bitterness against Theosophy, or where t ...

Authority The Path, November, 1887 We have received the following from California: In the July PATH is an article entitled—"Shall We Know Our Friends in Heaven?"
