The Theosophical
Society in Australia

Hobart Branch


Theosophy – an ongoing enquiry

The Society’s core business, in the words of one of its founders, is to assist in showing the world that such a thing as Theosophy exists, and to help us ascend towards it by studying and assimilating its eternal truths.

There is no doctrine and no opinion binding on any member of the Society, which does not promulgate any teaching or promote any teacher to the exclusion of others. Study material provided by the Education and Training Committee is offered for the consideration of the thoughtful reader. Only the individual student can ascertain, within the field of his or her own experience, how the teachings can throw light on life's deeper aspects.
