Blavatsky Lodge is the Sydney branch of The Theosophical Society in Australia. The Society attracts members from many cultures and religious backgrounds and with varied interests. It emphasises freedom of thought which allows for individual differences in approach. Those who choose to join The Theosophical Society are not asked to accept any particular belief or to surrender existing beliefs – they are asked only to be in sympathy with the Society’s Three Objects:
The Three Objects of The Theosophical Society
- To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
- To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.
- To investigate the unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in the human being.
Membership provides access to various events, publications and facilities, such as:
- lending and research libraries
- meetings, talks, discussions, seminars and workshops
- opportunities to attend national and international conventions, seminars, retreat and educational centres
- national and international journals
- contact with theosophical organisations, groups and members throughout Australia and around the world
It is suggested that anyone wishing to join the Society should first become familiar with its aims and activities.
They could perhaps join a theosophical library, attend meetings and get to know members. Blavatsky Lodge requires two sponsors, who must be members, for membership applications.
A membership application form and information about the membership fee may be obtained, from Blavatsky Lodge of The Theosophical Society, Suite 8 / 599 Pacific Highway, St Leonards, NSW.
