Universal Theosophy

universal-theosophy“Universal Theosophy”  by Robert Crosbie

A compilation of 30 talks and selected quotations from Robert Crosbie on how he continued the theosophical work after the passing of H.P. Blavatsky and William Judge.

His writes of his role with characteristically humility:

“We have undertaken a high mission and a heavy task — not because we think ourselves so eminently fit, but because we see the need and there is no one else to do it; and we also know that we will not be left alone in the doing.”

The Friendly Philosopher


This collection of articles are complementary to those of H.P. Blavatsky and William Q Judge and are in perfect accord with their ideas and occult metaphysics.

Crosbie studied under the Founders and his writings helped guide the formation in 1909 of the nascent ULT in Los Angeles.  They remain a vital source and are as reliable a guide now as they were during those times when pseudo-Theosophy was on the rise during the critical time when the New Age movement was taking its first steps.

His writings are clear, profound and simply put and they are recommended to all who wish to understand the essentials of the esoteric philosophy as it was originally taught and who want a reliable source book for their studies.
