Helena Petrovna Blavatsky – Through Different Eyes With ONE Heart (ITC 2015)
Contributions Given at the Annual International Theosophy Conference, The Hague, The Netherlands
Our world is in great need of Theosophy
Theosophists from all four corners of the globe realize more and more that a vibrant and committed Theosophical Movement is instrumental in bringing the ancient teachings, that were gathered and reintroduced to us by H.P. Blavatsky in the late nineteenth century, to the minds and hearts of our fellow human beings
Ever since the foundation of the Theosophical Society in 1875, the modern Theosophical Movement was faced with many challenges. Nowadays and worldwide, a number of theosophical organizations do exist. Each one of these organizations, all by themselves, have developed and adopted typical ways of working for mankind. The raison d’être of each of these organizations lies profoundly in the living power of the theosophical teachings as they were presented by H.P. Blavatsky
Theosophists are aware of the challenges they are faced with, and the need for cooperation of cross-pollination among the mainstream organizations to fulfil their shared task in bringing Theosophy into the world.
It is this weighty comprehension that has become the main motivation for the organizing of the yearly ITC conferences, i.e. International Theosophy Conferences, Inc. This yearly event is providing a platform whereby Theosophists inspire and support each other to become better workers for the cause of Universal Brotherhood
Since 2010 all lectures and panel discussions of each one of the ITC conferences have been broadcasted “live” via the internet; the publication of the ITC 2015 conference however is going to be the very first one, being a printed reflection
The 2015 conference was entitled:
“Helena Petrovna Blavatsky Through Different Eyes With ONE Heart”
It was subtitled:
What is our understanding of H.P.B.’s writings? How do they inspire all Theosophists, those affiliated with an organization or independent, to embody and transmit her timeless message to the modern world?
During ITC 2015 Theosophists from the mainstream organizations shared their views and values on what they consider to be the essence of H.P.B.’s message, the mission they see for their own particular organization and the Theosophical Movement as a whole, submitting means of keeping the teachings alive for future organizations
This publication assembles all these valued contributions. The result is a unique document that brings into practice of what was put forward in The Hague: an open and honest exchange, inspired by the collective desire to establish the practice of Universal Brotherhood
