THE OBJECTS OF THE SOCIETY ARE FOR THE PUBLIC BENEFIT TO PROMOTE MORAL AND SPIRITUAL WELFARE, AND THE ADVANCEMENT OF EDUCATION, THROUGH THE PROMOTION AND STUDY OF THEOSOPHY, AND THE DISSEMINATION OF THE RESULTS OF SUCH STUDY TO THE PUBLIC. "THEOSOPHY" IS DEFINED IN AN APPENDIX TO THESE ARTICLES. APPENDIX V THE THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY, WHILE RESERVING FOR EACH MEMBER FULL FREEDOM TO INTERPRET THOSE TEACHINGS KNOWN AS THEOSOPHY, IS DEDICATED TO PRESERVING AND REALISING THE AGELESS WISDOM, WHICH EMBODIES BOTH A WORLD VIEW AND A VISION OF HUMAN SELF TRANSFORMATION. THE THEOSOPHICAL TRADITION IS FOUNDED UPON CERTAIN FUNDAMENTAL PROPOSITIONS: I. THE UNIVERSE AND ALL THAT EXISTS WITHIN IT ARE ONE INTERRELATED AND INTERDEPENDENT WHOLE. II.EVERY EXISTENT BEING FROM ATOM TO GALAXY IS ROOTED IN THE SAME UNIVERSAL, LIFE CREATING REALITY. THIS REALITY IS ALL-PERVASIVE, BUT IT CAN NEVER BE SUMMED UP IN ITS PARTS, SINCE IT TRANSCENDS ALL ITS EXPRESSIONS. IT REVEALS ITSELF IN THE PURPOSEFUL, ORDERED AND MEANINGFUL PROCESSES OF NATURE AS WELL AS IN THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF THE MIND AND SPIRIT. III. RECOGNITION OF THE UNIQUE VALUE OF EVERY LIVING BEING EXPRESSES ITSELF IN REVERENCE FOR LIFE, COMPASSION FOR ALL, SYMPATHY WITH THE NEED OF INDIVIDUALS TO FIND TRUTH FOR THEMSELVES, AND RESPECT FOR EVERY RELIGIOUS TRADITION. THE WAYS IN WHICH THESE IDEALS BECOME REALITIES IN INDIVIDUAL LIFE ARE BOTH THE PRIVILEGED CHOICE AND THE RESPONSIBLE ACT OF EVERY HUMAN BEING. IV. CENTRAL TO THE CONCERNS OF THEOSOPHY IS THE DESIRE TO PROMOTE UNDERSTANDING AND FELLOWSHIP AMONG PEOPLE OF ALL RACES, NATIONALITIES, PHILOSOPHIES AND RELIGIONS. THEREFORE, ALL PEOPLE, WHATEVER THEIR RACE, RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION OR GENDER, ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE EQUALLY IN THE LIFE AND WORK OF THE SOCIETY. THE THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY IMPOSES NO DOGMAS, BUT POINTS TOWARD THE SOURCE OF UNITY BEYOND ALL DIFFERENCES. DEVOTION TO TRUTH, LOVE FOR ALL LIVING BEINGS, AND A COMMITMENT TO A LIFE OF ACTIVE ALTRUISM ARE THE MARKS OF A TRUE THEOSOPHIST.
