We have a number of topical handouts available for students and visitors to take away consisting of articles, compilations, or quotations, thought to be of relevance and interest.  You can find their PDFs here.

Meeting handouts relating to the regular Sunday events can be found in the relevant place on the Events page.

* Welcome to the United Lodge of Theosophists (an explanatory and introductory welcome letter for all newcomers)

* Theosophy on Jesus (mainly from the writings of H.P. Blavatsky; an overview of what Theosophy has to say about Jesus, who he was, when he lived, and the question of his relevance or importance for the world at large)

* Original Theosophy and Later Versions (an overview of five main and important distinctions to be considered between the original teachings of Theosophy and later contradictory versions formulated after the deaths of HPB and William Judge.)

* Definite Words for Definite Things (important insights from HPB’s “The Key to Theosophy” and William Q. Judge’s “The Ocean of Theosophy” regarding the right use of terminology)

* About The Mineral Monad (from H.P. Blavatsky in “Five Years of Theosophy,” this brief but informative article explains much about the mysteries of monadic evolution)

* Wise Advice for Difficult Relationships (excerpts from “Letters That Have Helped Me” by William Q. Judge)

* Getting a Basic Overview of The New Age Movement Today (a concise summary of today’s New Age Movement and the “theosophical” origins of some of its most popular concepts and teachings)

* On Prayer and Worship (from the Master M., B.P. Wadia, and others; without an understanding of Esoteric Science, prayer, worship, and devotion to “God” and “gods” can be a dangerous thing.)

* When We Die (an extensive chronological overview of the after-death states, processes, and experiences, from the original Theosophical teachings.)

* Hidden Origins of Rosicrucianism (excerpts from one of H.P. Blavatsky’s earliest articles, written even before the Theosophical Society was founded, and which contains her first public mention of her connection with Brotherhoods of Adepts.)

* H.P. Blavatsky on the Bhagavad Gita (statements from HPB about this important Hindu scripture, along with her significant words about Adi Shankaracharya.)

* Real Occultism in 14 Aphorisms (generally attributed to either Robert Crosbie or William Q. Judge. 1 page.)

Who was the Adept – Francis or Roger Bacon? (it is time to restore the name of Roger Bacon who HPB called “this wonderful old magician” and to correct wrong impressions about the later Bacon, Lord Francis, who was no adept and unlikely to have inspired Shakespeare’s great works as is often proposed in certain New Age circles that seem to have a vested interest (why?) in promoting him. Although H.P. Blavatsky recognises the quality of Lord Bacon’s moral aspirations, yet she frankly calls him dishonest! Furthermore The Secret Doctrine says he was “the first to strike the key-note of materialism” in the modern scientific age. 1 page.)

Lineage & Books of the Ancient Wisdom (a diagrammatic representation of key esoteric treatises that are in the hands of the Lodge of Adepts, the Great Brotherhood of saintly occultists who are behind the Theosophical Movement. Out of these texts have spun off the exoteric religions of the world.  Currently work in progress by students in London. 1 page.)

* The Beginning of Life on Earth ~ Anthropogenesis (a sketch outlining many facets of the original, complex Theosophical theory of the evolution of the Earth and humanity. The Rounds, Globes and Races and shown diagrammatically. 1 page.)

* The Seven Principles of the Human Constitution (chart)

* In Memory of H. P. Blavatsky

* When We Die
