Dogma, Theosophical Society Opposed to

The Theosophical Society (Adyar), the Theosophical Society (Pasadena), the United Lodge of Theosophists, indeed, all organizations within the Theosophical Movement are, in theory, opposed to any suggestion that there is a theosophical dogma as a matter of official policy. The magazine The Theosophist includes every month inside its front cover the manifesto which reads, in part, “As the Theosophical Society has spread far and wide over the world, and as members of all religions have become members of it without surrendering the special dogmas, teachings and beliefs of their respective faiths, it is thought desirable to emphasize the fact that there is no doctrine, no opinion, by whomsoever taught or held, that is in any way binding on any member of the Society, none which any member is not free to accept or reject.”
