Graal lodge emphasises the esoteric Christ: the path of compassion, buddhi and the bridge of buddhi-prâna. It is a purpose of the lodge to present the challenge of bodhisattvic orientation, which must be accepted as part of ”esoteric esotericism” when stepping on the ascending path. Within its operation Graal lodge gives special emphasis to the last sentence of The Star of Azazel’s constitution, especially the last words: ”we strive for the spiritual expansion of individuals and societies under the banner of understanding and love.”
Graal lodge has been founded for the use of the aspect of Chalice, especially for its inner, esoteric side. Unlike the exoteric side of Chalice, it is protective of the core even in its sharing nature, and thus the operation has its enclosed side.
In the center of the lodge’s operation is a path of study basing on a grade system. The purpose of the three step grade system is to offer members support and structure to their occult practice and prepare them for esotericism of the Star of Azazel. The path of practice, formed by the grades, leads through the symbolism and the most important teachings of the fraternity. It bases on multiple choices and individual practice, which is turned open by keys of virtue.
In general, the lodge does not organize meetings amongst its members nor does it emphasise the social element in its operations.
