Self-Reliance in Theosophy:
A Study in the Path to Wisdom
Independent Lodge of Theosophists
The Independent Lodge and its associated websites offer to students of philosophy an online correspondence course whose topic is “The Search for Discipleship According to the Teachings of the Masters”.
The series of written lessons is available for students of any country, in English and Portuguese, since 2017. The second edition of the course starts on 22 March 2018.
The study is based on the Letters from Mahatmas and on the writings of Helena P. Blavatsky. The lessons use mainly texts and books published in our associated websites. The Independent Lodge believes that – regarding discipleship and spiritual Pedagogy – there is nothing comparable to the Mahatma Letters in the philosophical literature of all time. The viewpoint is examined in the article “Leaving the Masters Aside”.
The course is free and no student has to pay anything. However, the study of the book “The Fire and Light of Theosophical Literature” is strongly recommended. Although not obligatory, the study of that volume is desirable for those interested in discipleship as it gives the Karmic and Historic view of past, present and future from which the course was made. 
The First Level of study in “The Search for Discipleship According to the Teachings of the Masters” presents 10 weekly lessons.
Interested students of theosophy are invited to write any time to firstname.lastname@example.org, making their subscriptions for the next edition of the Course and sending a short report on their spiritual search so far. They should also indicate full name, the city and country where they live, and whether they have the book “The Fire and Light”.
 See in our websites the articles “The Making of ‘The Fire and Light’”, “The HPB Defense Project – 2016”, “A Timely Book for the New Age” (by Robert Kitto), “How to Obtain The Fire and Light”, “Buy ‘The Fire and Light’ Now” and “On The Fire and Light” (by Juan Pedro Bercial).
