We would like to draw your attention to several websites that we find to be rich resources for sincere theosophists. The “web” is the medium of the present and the future, and there is much good work being done to further the core causes that lie at the heart of Theosophy. While we’re not directly affiliated with these sites (with the exception of our sister-site), we feel akin to them in many ways.
Our sister-site, Theosophy Nexus, provides an online forum community with several study groups and discussions to participate in.
The Theosophical Society (Pasadena) has a wonderful website which contains perhaps the largest online library of theosophical books and articles (Theosophical University Press):
The Phoenix Lodge of the ULT has an ever-growing website, containing full-text of several important theosophical books, including the Secret Doctrine, Isis Unveiled, The Ocean of Theosophy, Five Years of Theosophy, etc..
Blavatsky.net provides a wonderful resource, including hundreds of articles by H.P. Blavatsky and W.Q. Judge.
The Edmonton Theosophical Society has a website that reflects their dedication to the promotion of the original programme of the Theosophical Society. The site includes a good intro to the history of the TS, and online editions of Fohat Magazine.
The ULT in India has a website that contains valuable resources for theosophical study, including pdfs of central theosophical books, a collection of articles, and their ongoing theosophical periodical “The Theosophical Movement”.
The Blavatsky Theosophy Group UK has a pair of sister-sites that present a very authentic version of Theosophy through regular articles.
Theosophy Watch “monitors the world of science, religion, philosophy, consciousness and the arts, for emerging signs that point back to ancient universal verities, articulated so profoundly by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky in her life’s writings and work.”
Wisdom World draws from hundreds of articles to put forth a systematic presentation of a wide array of theosophical subjects.
The Eastern Tradition Research Institute‘s purpose is to trace the lost Wisdom Tradition in its extant sources, primarily the scriptures of the East, and provides very valuable resources in this area.
The Philaletheians provide excellent resources for students of Theosophy, as their “overriding aim is to promulgate Ageless Wisdom and Higher Ethics as presented by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.”
“Circle of Asia” is a blog that provides research on Theosophy. It encourages eclectic study of philosophy and religion for students. The site contains many well-written articles on a wide range of theosophical subjects.
Sites we endorse:
His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama’s mission is of the highest importance in today’s world. His promotion of Brotherhood and his spread of Buddha’s teachings is unequaled in our day.
The Institute of World Culture was founded upon truly theosophical principles, aiming to promote universal brotherhood and foster human fellowship among all races, nations and cultures. Its activites are based upon its wonderful Declaration of Interdependence.
Ralph Waldo Emerson was one of the leading Transcendentalists of the 19th century, and is beloved by many theosophists. His essays, such as “The Oversoul” and “On Self-Reliance” and many others are filled with the highest thinking and noblest morality.
Mahatma Gandhi showed the world the true spirit of non-violence in action, and has had a profoundly uplifting impact on humanity. Gandhi worked to exemplify the high ideals that form the heart and soul of Indian philosophy, making the theoretical practical.
Henry David Thoreau was a true lover of Nature and leading figure among the Transcendentalists of the 19th century. He is an exemplar in the highest use of the term, showing us the real “living of the life” founded upon universal ethics. Thoreau had a direct and powerful influence upon such notable figures as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King.
