Theosophy and the ULT
The Lodge programme takes up the writings of two of the original and most active founders of the Theosophical Society, H. P. Blavatsky and William Q Judge, along with those of Robert Crosbie, the founder of the ULT.
The influence of the Theosophical movement has popularised the Eastern ideas of karma and reincarnation and introduced to the West practices such as meditation and the concepts of the inter-connectedness of all life and non-violence. Its scholarly and fact-based philosophy has given rise to research and study of reincarnation and man’s consciousness, both being important subjects in their own right as some of the keys to man’s well-being and our social and psychological progress.
Such developments as these have become clearly better understood and accepted over the past 100 years and are entering the mainstream due to the spread of theosophical ideas.
Robert Crosbie was a pupil of the two founders and started the ULT in 1909 because he wished to see their work continued along the same lines and with their ideals. The programme of the ULT remains loyal to these original pioneers, whose writings remain far above that of later authors and who are the most reliable and trusted sources of the Perennial Wisdom of theosophy.
