2018 February Programme

Prayer and Forgiveness of Sins

Our Hon. Secretary, Lily Chong, gives this interesting and thought-provoking talk which examines the nature of prayer, the different types of prayers and methods for answering them, how we should pray, and prayers for the departed. It will then take a look at a closely related subject — the forgiveness of sins. This talk was last given 5 years ago. Read the synopsis in the 2013 January Newsletter.

Early Members of the Theosophical Society

Our VP, Tang Kwok Choon, walks us through the early history of the TS.

 

One of the early members was William Stainton Moses (pen-name M.A. Oxon). We look at this rather controversial person and his time in the TS. He was even extensively commented upon in the Mahatma Letters to A. P. Sinnett.

Avatâras

Choong Chi Pin starts a new series of talks based on the four lectures delivered by Annie Besant at the 24th Anniversary Meeting of The Theosophical Society at Adyar Madras, December 1899. These lectures were later published as a booklet with the same title—Avatâras. The four lectures given by Annie Besant were:

What is an Avatâra?
