Houston, Texas 77008
MEETING ON FEBRUARY 18, 2017
Group Study: “Theosophy and Ethics,” Chapter 9 of the book “The Spiritual Life” by Annie Besant
Facilitator: Mrs. Zarine Balsara
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Brief Description of the Study Material
The title of Chapter 9 of the book “The Spiritual Life” is “Theosophy and Ethics.” The author asserts that “the highest ethics is rooted in the unity of life,” and that unity is the foundation of brotherhood. Some questions that are answered in the chapter include: (i) Is law the will of the Divine? (ii) Is brotherhood the law of Nature? (iii) What evidence exists to show us that we are all brothers and sisters? (iv) What are the roles of karma and reincarnation in ethical living? The chapter ends by the author by informing us that spiritual teachers, such as Lao-Tze, the Manu, the Buddha and the Christ, have all taught forgiveness, altruism and unity of life. Please come to the meeting to discuss the chapter, and share your insights of the chapter with other seekers.
