Theosophy and Social Responsibility
– Applying the Head and Heart Teachings of H.P. Blavatsky –
The aim of the International Theosophy Conference 2016 was to explore the active connection between Theosophical teachings and social responsibility.
Guided by the principles and metaphysical perspectives given in The Secret Doctrine and other writings of H.P.B. and those of her close co-workers, conference participants discussed how fundamental ethical questions reflected in contemporary social conditions might be answered. How might students of Theosophy understand and practice social responsibility? What thoughts and deeds might help us reduce suffering and improve the quality of life for all that lives? Do the teachings of Theosophy, in particular the messages of H.P. Blavatsky, indicate a duty to help others?
The location and program of the Conference, at La Casa de Maria, provided an inspiring and regenerative opportunity for both formal and informal discussion in a community of Theosophical learning.
