Theosophists and would -be Theosophists are all united by a common devotion to the Regeneration of Man. They may differ in their convictions, interests or approach. The teachings of Buddha, Jesus, Blavatsky, Besant, Krishnamurti or some other teacher may inspire some and not others. But there is a strong common bond, namely profound concern for the progress and perfection of humanity, not merely at the material and intellectual levels, but also morally and spiritually.
A Theosophist does not seek wisdom to benefit himself. 'Not for himself but for the world he lives'; and the more deeply devoted he is to the regeneration of mankind, the more ardently he seeks to understand himself and the world, and penetrates in to the secret of life. His aim is to discover the source of the Goodness and Happiness which is the birthright of all living beings.
Mrs Radha Burnier, who has been President of the Theosophical Society since 1980, conducted two seminars on the subject of human regeneration in the Netherlands in July 1990. This book contains a compilation of the lectures and discussions.
