The Theosophical Society In Oakland

Join us as we study and explore the concepts of Theosophy, our self-realization, and development. We focus on examining, in the light of Theosophy, the latest scientific research, and teachings of ancient and modern philosophers, psychologist, and mystics.

Our Motto is:  There is no religion (or law) higher than truth.

What is Theosophy

Theosophy promotes understanding and unity among people of all races, nationalities, philosophies, and religions. Therefore all people, whatever their race, creed, sex, caste, or color, are invited to participate equally in the life and work of the Society. The Society imposes no dogmas, but points toward the source of unity behind all differences. Devotion to truth, love for all living beings, and commitment to a life of altruism are the marks of the true Theosophist.

Taking the spiritual path

The Importance of the Spiritual Path for Development:

Theosophy emphasizes the spiritual path as a journey of self-discovery, transformation, and service to others. By cultivating inner virtues such as compassion, wisdom, and selflessness, individuals can evolve spiritually and contribute positively to the welfare of humanity.

Service to others is viewed not merely as a moral obligation but as an essential aspect of spiritual growth. By selflessly serving others, individuals align themselves with higher spiritual principles, foster unity, and contribute to the collective evolution of consciousness.
