WHAT IS THEOSOPHY ?
Return to Homepage
The word Theosophy is derived from the Greek THEOS (god) and SOPHIA (wisdom)which can be translated as Divine Wisdom, Wisdom Religion or in the modern interpretation as Ageless Wisdom. The word Theosophy has been in use for centuries.
Theosophy examines the underlying elements of basic wisdom or thought of various religious teachings that have been important in the development of humankind. This examination does not seek to draw anyone away from the religion that he or she belongs to, but to give a rational explanation and interpretation of the inner meanings of the creeds and ceremonies of religion.
Theosophy is not a religion since is has no dogma, creed, or ritual.
