Helena Petrovna Blavatsky Through Different Eyes With One Heart
The focus of ITC 2015 was the result of the outcome of ITC 2014, where with joint efforts The Naarden Declaration was drafted. The Declaration makes clear that Theosophists are aware of the challenge they face, and the need for cooperation and cross-pollination between the mainstream organizations to fulfill their common task of bringing Theosophy into the world. In the true spirit of brotherhood they can do this through sharing, collaborating and by being open minded.
The subsequent step in this process of cross-pollination and keeping the teachings alive is to learn more from each other. This requires that we be able to talk openly about our backgrounds. If we can talk about our differences, we will make it capable to learn from each other.
It was the purpose of ITC 2015 to learn about how the different branches of the theosophical tree look at and interpret the theosophical teachings. To learn what their theosophical stance is in today’s world, and how Theosophists classify their undertakings in keeping the teachings alive for future generations.
Four main questions were addressed:
- Who we are, our mission and where do we stand now?
- H.P. Blavatsky, H. P. B. and the current Messianic Cycle
- How to grasp the essence of H. P. B.’s timeless message?
- How to keep H. P. B.’s message alive for future generations?
Speakers from the Theosophical Society Adyar, the Theosophical Society Point Loma – Blavatskyhouse, The Hague and the United Lodge of Theosophists presented their views on these questions. The questions were further elaborated on in small working groups that consisted of Theosophists from different organizations, after which the outcomes were shared in plenary sessions.
