Adyar Theosophical Academy
A brochure announcing the new school describes its philosophy in this way:
The objective of the Theosophical Society is to bring about a transformation of the individual and that of society. True transformation comes from awakening the higher faculties of a person and the mastery of the lower nature. From such transformed individuals will emerge a society that will be truly harmonious, loving and growth-giving.
It is not easy to change. The deeper one’s conditioning is, the harder it is to change. Theosophical education aims at laying the right foundations in the development of the personality, mind and character.
The capacity to change oneself is a self-transformative capacity and can be cultivated by a conscious intention. Self-awareness is the first step towards bringing about self-culture.
