(A) Society for the Propagation of the Idea of Brotherhood on Practical Instead of Theoretical Lines

“The members of the Theosophical Society at large are free to profess whatever religion or philosophy they like, or none if they so prefer, provided they are in sympathy with, and ready to carry out one or more of the three Objects of the Association. The Society is a philanthropic and scientific body for the propagation of the idea of brotherhood on practical instead of theoretical lines.” (Helena Blavatsky. The Key to Theosophy, p. 19; emphasis added)
