MEMBERSHIP OF THE THEOSOPHICAL SOCIETY

The three Objects of the Society are:

1. To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.

2. To encourage the study of Comparative Religion, Philosophy and Science.

3. To investigate unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in the human being.

The Theosophical Society is composed of students belonging to any religion in the world, or to none, who are united by their approval of the Society's Objects. Their bond of union is not the profession of a common belief, but a common search and aspiration for Truth in an environment of freedom of thought. The Society welcomes as members those who are in sympathy with its Objects and who are willing to abide by its Rules.

Persons interested in applying to join the Society are encouraged to attend a few members meetings (we encourage up to four) or other Theosophical events in order to acquaint themselves with the Society and its members. They should also consider some of the literature produced by the Society, which is available in our library.

When a person has acquainted themself and has decided to join, they need to fill out the application for Membership Form which must be personally submitted by the applicant to the library/bookshop as adequate personal identification must be witnessed and recorded by a financial member of the Branch. Applications will be considered for approval by the Executive Committees of the Perth Branch and the Australian National Section.
