Theosophical Society

The Theosophical Society is a worldwide association dedicated to practical realization of the oneness of all life and to independent spiritual search. It was founded in New York City in 1875 by Helena P. Blavatsky, Henry S. Olcott?, William Q. Judge?, and others. Blavatsky (1831-1891) is the primary force behind the modern theosophical movement. Her works and those of her teachers express the principal concepts of its philosophy. A Russian by birth, she traveled for over twenty years through Europe, the Americas, Asia, and the Near East studying mysticism and occultism before devoting her life to The Theosophical Society and its objectives. read more here (external link)
