About

OUR MISSION

The Virtual Centre for Theosophical Studies is a self-functioning centre of the Theosophical Society established in May 2020 for the study of esoteric principles and ideas. In this capacity, the VCTS aims to utilise the digital environment to make known the teachings of Theosophy to inquirers around the world.

 

A Virtual Centre

As a virtual centre, our aim will be to make known the teachings of Theosophy to youth around the world through the digital landscape.

 

An Opportunity for Innovation

As a team, we will contribute research and innovative ideas pertaining to the future of the Theosophical Society and the role of youth in its activities.

 

A Global Resource

Our outlook will be global, with a special focus on supporting objectives and the general work of the Theosophical Society through virtual volunteer efforts suited to isolated members.

We will be hosting online discussions, provide online studies, and more. Stay tuned for more content as it comes available. In the meantime, visit our social links below and follow us.

Arni Narendran

Arni narendren

education Director

Arni Narendran is from Mumbai and joined the TS in 1976 at Chennai, and became a protégé of Brother John Coates who inspired many a youth across the world to Theosophy. He is very optimistic about the future of the Theosophical Society as Theosophy has become relevant to humanity, more than ever before in history. The way forward, I see the Society play a catalyst role in bringing a transformation to the “Universal Thought Process” – from a “divisive” world view to an “inclusive” world view of Universal Brotherhood. Our present leadership as well as members are evidently working towards this goal. Arni has published articles with Hermes Magazine.
