The Founding Document of the United Lodge
United Lodge of Theosophists
A 2016 Editorial Note:
The United Lodge of Theosophists,
ULT, was founded in 1909 and this brief
philosophic statement is its sole guiding document.
Founded in September 2016, the Independent
Lodge of Theosophists has much in common with
the ULT and considers the following text as an
inspiring summary of Helena Blavatsky’s Pedagogy,
and a true gift from the ULT, essentially belonging
to the theosophical movement as a whole.
The policy of this Lodge is independent devotion to the cause of Theosophy, without professing attachment to any Theosophical organization. It is loyal to the great Founders of the Theosophical movement, but does not concern itself with dissensions or differences of individual opinion.
The work it has on hand and the end it keeps in view are too absorbing and too lofty to leave it the time or inclination to take part in side issues. That work and that end is the dissemination of the fundamental principles of the Philosophy of Theosophy, and the exemplification in practice of those principles, through a truer realization of the SELF; a profounder conviction of Universal Brotherhood.
It holds that the unassailable basis for union among Theosophists, wherever and however situated, is “similarity of aim, purpose and teaching”, and therefore has neither Constitution, By-Laws nor Officers, the sole bond between its Associates being that basis. And it aims to disseminate this idea among Theosophists in the furtherance of Unity.
It regards as Theosophists all who are engaged in the true service of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, condition or organization, and
It welcomes to its association all those who are in accord with its declared purposes and who desire to fit themselves, by study and otherwise, to be the better able to help and teach others.
“The true Theosophist belongs to no cult or sect, yet belongs to each and all.”
The Independent Lodge of Theosophists sees the ULT with philosophical sympathy and gratitude.
