Dear friends,

The Theosophy Virtual Lodge, is a cyberlodge dedicated to the
promotion of theosophical thought via the world wide web. Our live
presentations are normally scheduled for each Saturday of the month.

Emerging paltalk technology gives us the opportunity to hold
discussions and present lectures using real-time audio and
eventually perhaps even video feeds.

We are glad to invite you to join us in this effort to promote
theosophical awareness.
