About the Presentation
The Mahatmas who brought together the Founders of the TS made clear through their correspondence with several members that the essential basis of the Society is Universal Brotherhood without distinctions. It implies both a regeneration of the mind as well as an acceptance of others as they are. We will examine, with the spirit of enquiry, several statements from The Mahatma Letters and their relevance to the work of the TS today.
