I certainly hope people's minds are broad enough to accept many
definitions. I take it then, that you all have to agree on
Please excuse this method of replying but since having just dropped in to
test the waters I seem to be on digest somehow.
Theosophists do not very often agree on anything which in many cases may stem
from the terminology used. People on this list can be very passionate about
their particular aspect of Theosophy so arguements occur and we even shout at
each other over e-mail if you can imagine such a thing.
I think Max may have been 'tongue in cheek' with his reply because the
hardest thing is to explain Theosophy in a few words. It all depends which
perspective one comes from and I have had persons walk into our library and
casually ask what is Theosophy and I sort of cringe inside and try to crank
up the thought process to find something to say that makes sense to them.
Where to begin? The 3 objects, karma, reincarnation, masters, good library,
nice members, wisdom, the organisation, the founders, study group, to name
but a few that run throught the mind in great haste. I hope that some of the
knowledgeable people on here will respond because then I may have something
to say to my inquirers too. Some people are good with arranging their
thoughts into written pages so, please something concise but meaningful :-)
