“The Theosophical Society, founded in 1875, is a worldwide body whose primary object is Universal Brotherhood without distinction based on the realization that life, and all its diverse forms, human and non-human, is indivisibly One.” – Official Website, Theosophical Society International Headquarters, Adyar, India.

C.W. Leadbeater and Annie Besant, were founding members of the Theosophy Movement. Out of ancient tantric, yogic and Buddhist concepts such as Chakra, they developed a system of bodily energy centers and aura forms (planes of the astral body). Their early 20th century contributions of aura diagrams, thought forms and clairvoyance principles have met with criticism yet continue to hold popularity within spiritual philosophy circles and parapsychology until today.
