The Theosophical

Order of Service

Return to Homepage


This Order was founded by Dr Annie Besant in February 1908 for the relief of suffering, and is now spread all over the world. The motto which she chose for the Order was: 'A union of those who love in the service of all that suffers.'


Annie Besant


Every country, region or group has its own Director, while the International President of the Theosophical Society is always the President of the Order. Each National Director, guided by a Council, organizes the work in the area concerned and authorizes local groups to carry out any of the numerous philanthropic projects that are possible for it. Mrs Diana Dunningham Chapotin is the International Secretary of the Order.

The Theosophical Community



TOS groups all over the world do such work as holding healing services, providing free medicine and medical aid, helping prisoners, visiting the sick, forming peace groups, doing animal welfare work and donating funds to worthy causes. A magazine called The Service Link provides information and suggestions from time to time.


Cardiff Theosophical Society regularly organizes fund raising events for worthy causes and a healing group meets every month.


We have a charity bookstall ongoing at the Theosophy Cardiff with proceeds to Macmillan Nurses. This has done a brisk trade over the last 3 years. A raffle in aid of Practical Action is held at every Sunday Meeting. Regular Free Bowen Therapy Clinics, run by Theosophists, are held for children with special needs. Details of TOS events are included in our programme.




We have held Bring & Buy Sales and Book Sales in aid of Macmillan nurses since 2002 and in 2008 we decided to hold a car boot sale at Splott Market in Cardiff. This was a great success and great fun and we highly recommend holding a car boot sale to other groups.
