Informal Study Group
Students often need to
seek clarification on theosophical teachings and explanation of certain
writings as our literature can sometimes be rather abstruse. To facilitate
earnest students, we are holding informal study group (ISG)
meetings for the express purpose of answering questions of students. In such
meetings, students may refer to specific writings or passages that are
unclear or aspects of theosophical teachings which they have difficulty
understanding. Chong Sanne will be the facilitator for the ISG.
Participants are requested to submit their questions by email in advance.

Darkness to Light: Understanding Violence
There seems to be no end
to violence in the world. It leaves behind it a trail of destruction,
despair, indescribable suffering and pain, making the world dark with fear.
This presentation will explore the nature of emotions and their effect on
the mind, the genesis of violence in the human consciousness, as well as
essential insights from the Perennial Wisdom which can naturally lead to the
ending of all violence in the awakened individual and in the world.
Bro. Pedro Oliveira,
President of the Indo-Pacific Federation of the TS, will meet members of the
Singapore Lodge and give this insightful talk.

By popular request, our
Hon. Secretary, Lily Chong, will give a talk on her research into
vegetarianism, to take us through various facets of the subject. In the talk
she will debunk the myth on the lack of nutrition of a vegetarian diet. She
will also show us the consequences of the demand and supply of animal
products, including a video show on animal farming. Come to the talk and
delight in the merits of vegetarianism.
Note change in time.
