On the ULT’s mission and future
The United Lodge of Theosophists is an association of students of Theosophy which came
into being through the determination of a small number of Theosophists to pursue the
objectives of the Theosophical Movement without organizational distractions and
formalities. Read more …
On forming an association
To become a ULT Associate is an important step which is given free of charge. An older student wrote on what it means:
As far as I can see the signing of a form has a meaning only to the individual who signs.
In this case, after studying the implications of the “DECLARATION OF THE ULT” one may, or may not, offer to sign such an “Associate” card. The decision means no more than that which the individual intends in his own “Heart” to support and sustain. So there is no room for false promises. All signers determine for themselves what they will do, so there is full and open liberty of conscience. The commitment is to Theosophy, to one’s own HIGHER SELF and to no outside individual or “form.”
The ULT will continue to offer its help and facilities to all-comers.
No questions asked of anyone.
Freedom and independence…
“Fearlessness, sincerity, assiduity in devotion, generosity, self-restraint, piety, and alms-givings, study, mortification, and rectitude; harmlessness, veracity, and freedom from anger, resignation, equanimity, and not speaking of the faults of others, universal compassion, modesty, and mildness; patience, power, fortitude, and purity, discretion, dignity, unrevengefulness, and freedom from conceit ― these are the marks of him whose virtues are of a “godlike” character.”
from the Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 16
Some ask “What is THEOSOPHY?” They are pointed to some of the predecessors of H.P.Blavatsky.
Some say that if we adopt for ourselves and for others rigid ideas of Theosophy we will fail to see the value of others’ sayings and teachings.
So by seeing the eclecticism of Theosophy, we need not fear that mere words will grade or separate individuals, this is not the concept of Brotherhood. There is a vast spiritual Unity in the Universe. WE ARE ALL ONE, self-reliant yet interdependent.
It is a brotherhood of ideas and, like all sciences and philosophies, it has a few essential concepts. It claims to be the most refined and ancient wisdom whose concepts are universal, basic and apply to all who speak for Theosophy, in whatever language and in time or clime. They give the same scope to all, and limit no one.
This ANCIENT WISDOM knew – and continues to know – deep and vast knowledge about ourselves, our purpose in life, nature, the universe, the highest god-like principles, and man’s long history on this earth.
Theosophy is the portion of that ancient knowledge brought to us by H.P.Blavatsky and William Q Judge toward the end of the 19th century, as taught to her by her Teachers.
There are no members of the ULT, only associates for those who choose; see the Associate form, after the declaration of policy.
