The Theosophical Society (Adyar) is an international organisation, founded in New York on 17 November 1875, which was transferred later to Adyar, Chennai (Madras) where it is headquartered until the present day. Its three objects are:

  1. To form a nucleus of the universal brotherhood of humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste, or color.
  2. To encourage the comparative study of religion, philosophy, and science.
  3. To investigate unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in humanity.

Members are only expected to be in agreement with these three objects of our organization. To become a member, see membership.
