The TOS was founded to provide a framework in which people can engage in creative, practical and humanitarian action in a theosophical spirit. It offers opportunities for participation in activities promoting the First Object of the Theosophical Society - To form a nucleus of a universal brotherhood of humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
It also acts as a forum in which people may air their views on global affairs in the light of spiritual principles and the ideas of the theosophical philosophy - one source of unity beyond outward differences; the interrelatedness and interdependence of all forms of life; the ordered unfoldment of the cosmos in accordance with natural law.

ITALIAN EARTHQUAKE RELIEF
A devastating magnitude 6.2 earthquake hit central Italy on 24 August this year in and around the city of Amarice. Several hundred people were killed and many more wounded with more than 225 people being pulled from the flattened rubble that now lays where the town(s) used to be. Tremors continued in this area with a magnitude 6.6 quake occurring in nearby Norcia on 30 October with about 200 aftershocks since then. The TOS in Italy is aiding those affected by the quakes and needs our help.
Donations to help in the relief efforts are being gratefully received by the Italian TOS.
