Theosophy

Divine Wisdom (or theosophy) is timeless, but it does have eras when it is more public than others. In 1875 the Theosophical Society was formed by Helena Blavatsky. Blavatsky laid the philosophical and ethical foundation for Interfaith relations and well as much of the "New Age" teachings.

Here is a link to get one started: http://davidpratt.info/

Theosophy: any number of philosophies maintaining that a knowledge of God may be achieved through spiritual ecstasy, direct intuition, or special individual relations, especially the movement founded in 1875 as the Theosophical Society by Helena Blavatsky and Henry Steel Olcott.

ORIGIN: mid 17th Century, from medieval Latin "theosophia", from late Greek, from "theosophos" 'wise concerning God', from "theos" 'God' + "sophos" 'wise'.

Adepts, Masters, Brothers, Initiates

G de Purucker's expounds on the theosophical notion of humans who have, over many lives, become Masters of their lower nature. They now radiate from their True Nature. Some are in bodies of flesh, some in subtle bodies. All are bodhisattvas - enlightened beings who live to help other beings advance spiritually.
