The United Lodge of Theosophists, founded in 1909 by Robert Crosbie, holds a unique place in the Theosophical Movement. Its “Declaration” states its policy is “independent devotion to the cause of Theosophy, without professing attachment to any Theosophical organization” and that “the work it has on hand and the end it keeps in view” are “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.”
