We have made the decision to close the Leeds Lodge for the foreseeable future. As far as we can discern the decision to close is being adopted by all Lodges across the country, including the London HQ. We will review the situation with due reference to government guidelines.
Leeds Theosophical Society will be hosting the International Vedic Astrology Conference which was scheduled to be held in October (2-4 October) in 2021.
The theme is: Dealing with Career. Visti Larsen, Gordon Brennan and Vijaya Subramanian are all invited speakers. We have also invited Sonal Sachdeva to give a talk. Sonal is the resident Jyotish expert at Watkins Bookshop in central London.

Tim Wyatt is the Treasurer of Leeds Theosophical Society.
This book provides a concise digest of the timeless truths and universal laws which shape us, our world and the universe beyond. As the sub-title suggests, this is merely an overview of a vast and fascinating body of knowledge which offers a coherent and comprehensive explanation of human and cosmic evolution.
What is Theosophy
The word Theosophy has been used for many centuries. It is of Greek origin (theo-'divine', and sophia - 'wisdom') meaning Divine Wisdom. It is the wisdom that cannot be enclosed within words.
It is a Truth which must be discovered and experienced by each one for themselves. Theosophy, sometimes also called the Ageless Wisdom, is the Light which shines through the many coloured lamps of religions. It is the thread of truth in scriptures, creeds, symbols, myths and rituals.
The Mission Statement of the Theosophical Society
“To serve humanity by cultivating an ever-deepening understanding and realization of the Ageless Wisdom, spiritual Self-transformation, and the Unity of all Life.”
Resolution passed by the General Council of the Theosophical Society (2018).
The Objects of the Society
To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.
To investigate unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in man.
ARE YOU A THEOSOPHIST?
**** Do you try to encourage true friendliness and sympathy between people of all nations, cultures and beliefs?
**** Do you feel you are open-minded enough to learn about other people's religions and to see the signs of unity within all of them?
**** Would you enjoy exchanging ideas on how the sciences of the outer physical world and the teachings dealing with the Soul of things can be reconciled?
**** Above all, are you interested in contributing to the welfare of mankind by developing the potentials innate in each one of us?
