Introducing myself

I've been studying world religions for years - even went to university to study them there for a few years. The Theosophical Society is a great help to me in that study - right now for instance we're studying the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali in the lodge in The Hague (The Netherlands).

I share my insights on my blog All Considering.
I archive interesting material on any religion I'm studying at my website Katinka Hesselink Net. It has a large section on theosophy and theosophical history. See also the sections on Jiddu Krishnamurti, Buddhism, Sufism and Alternative Christianity.

My hope for the Theosophical Society (and the Theosophical Movement) is that it will continue to be a force for interfaith dialog, based on the understanding that ultimately Truth is ONE.
