Title supplied by cataloger. Theosophy is a doctrine of religious philosophy and metaphysics, which originated with Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. In 1875, Blavatsky, along with Henry Steel Olcott, William Quan Judge and a few others, founded the Theosophical Society in New York City. Theosophy teaches that what is known as human is actually a Spiritual Nature classically called the "Monad", or Higher Self, and that all individual beings, regardless of the kingdom in which they exist (human, animal, vegetable or mineral), are involved in an inextricably interconnected single life. The Theosophical Society was strongest in the 1920s, with around 7,000 members in the United States. View of the Theosophy Hall, an unassuming white 2-story building on the corner of 33rd and Grand Ave. The main entrance is located on the left side of the building (visible here between the trees), with three arches leading to three wooden doors. Two marquees, one brown, one black, list days and times of service in English and Spanish, and can be seen on the right.
