The Theosophical Order of Service

The Theosophical Order of Service is a world-wide organisation committed to putting into practice the ideal of brotherhood with all life.

Members endeavour to have a compassionate and constructive approach to the welfare of humanity, animals and the environment.

It focuses on various forms of service to put into practice these ideals of theosophical philosophy. It is ‘theosophy in action’.
Dr Annie Besant the then International President of the Theosophical Society, founded the

The Theosophical Order of Service in February 1908 in response to the wishes of a number of Theosophical Society

members ‘to organise themselves for various lines of service, to actively promote the first object of the Society.’
The motto chosen was ‘A Union of Those who Love in the Service of All that Suffers’, and its aims:

  1. To minimise the sum of misery in the world;
  2. To forget self in working for others;
  3. To eliminate selfishness and substitute love as the rule of the world; and
  4. To live to the highest that is within us.
The Theosophical Order of Service is the service arm of the Theosophical Society and offers a framework in which:
* individuals may work along self-selected lines of service for the uplifting of humanity and the protection of the planet;
* the practical application of theosophical principles to issues of contemporary concern may be explored;
* social action as spiritual practice is honoured and nurtured.
