Consciousness, Contemplation, Commitment:
The Future Is Now

We are excited about the first-ever World Congress held in Asia! Our members in Singapore have been making preparations for more than a year, and are looking forward to welcoming their Theosophical sisters and brothers from around the world. Singapore is a beautiful, multicultural, world-class city with a thriving Theosophical group. We hope you can attend!

World Congress is held not more than once in every seven years ! Join this one. Previous Congresses were held in Rome (2010), Sydney (2001), Brasilia (1993), Nairobi (1982), New York (1975), Salzburg (1966), Geneva (1936), Chicago (1929), Adyar (a Jubilee Congress  1925), Paris (1921).

PROGRAM

Our present actions shape the future. It is the work we do now within ourselves and for others that determines what the Theosophical Society will look like in years to come. This Congress is to encourage us to actively participate in the NOW, to come to a shared vision foru our future.

The Congress will kick off on Saturday morning on 4 August. Arrive on 3 August.

ABOUT THE SYMBOL OF THE WORLD CONGRESS

1. The artist Joma Sipe was "inspired" by MERLION The Merlion (MalaySinga-Laut) is a well-known icon of Singapore depicted as a mythical creature with a lion's head and the body of a fish. It is widely used as a mascot and national personification of Singapore. The logo is not a replica of Merlion. 

2. Two of our Founders, H. P. Blavatsky and H. S. Olcott were both Leos.

3. The lion logo shows strength, leadership, but also fairness thus portraying great majesty.

4. The colors used were adopted from an original 1886 book  publication Theosophy, Religion and Occult Science by Henry Olcott. Coincidentally those colors link directly with Singapore and its Chinese background and history.
