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.

The Second and Third Objects of the Theosophical Society as Related to the First From Mr. Keightley's talk in 1890

Universal Brotherhood is not only the foundation stone of the Theosophical Society, but literally the essence of its second and third objects – the life-giving spirit in them all. Without this grand and sublime ideal, the study of ancient religions, sciences and philosophies would lose its noblest and purest charm. Without it, the pursuit of the third object would be either altogether meaningless, or if in any degree successful, it would lead to the most disastrous consequences.

TOS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE:SAVE THE DATE!

The Fourth TOS International Conference will take place 9-11 August, 2018 in Singapore. The TOS Conference immediately follows the Theosophical Society World Congress which runs from 4-9 August. The specific venue has yet to be determined. Both events will be located at the same venue. This is a working conference for those who are active in TOS work. We will review our accomplishments since our last conference in 2013 and make plans for the next five years. All active TOS workers are welcome, whether or not they are members of the TOS. As an unexpected extra, 9 August is a National Holiday in Singapore, complete with parades and fireworks.
