The Three Objects

The Theosophical Society was formed at New York on November 17, 1875, and incorporated at Chennai (Madras) India on April 3, 1905. The Society's three declared Objects describe its threefold mission, which is:

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

  2. To encourage the comparative study of religion, philosophy, and science.

  3. To investigate unexplained laws of nature and the powers latent in humanity.
