As you see, our website has been through renovation!

In addition to the more beautiful looks, the translations of some articles have been through improvements. On behalf of the brotherhood I heartily thank also the outside help given in this!

There is still much to be done before this English side can be compared to the Finnish one, in depth or in clarity. Many of the old translations are in great need of editing, and many new translations are needed. Some older articles are outdated and in need of more info that is already available in Finnish. The working group for finally doing this kind of work is under construction right now, & I trust the future will see much more improvements in quality as well as in quantity.

Meantime, please discuss about any topics both philosophic or practical, and bear with the defects patiently as the great yogis do. :)

Hello Mr. Nefastos,

Indeed it is working and looking wonderfully, I am truly glad to observe the way hwo the temple is progressing and it is my will to also assist in the progress of the temple, yet I am not a programmer nor a graphic master but I will always help as best as I can and just please tell me through the PM or here where you need assistance of any kind and I will always consider it if I am able to serve my help in those workings that will be performed and I don't mean here of course only spiriotual works but the works of any kind.

Greetings.

For your information, username Alfalfa was banned from our Finnish forums due to extremely long monologues and somewhat obsessive behavior that was starting to dominate the discussions in a bad way. He hadn't started acting like this on the English forums yet but to avoid that we naturally had to ban him from here as well. He had been warned but seemed not to follow the wishes we had about changing his way of expression that was more fitting to books and blogs and such platforms.

To clarify any possible misunderstandings, everyone is still welcome to express themselves here in their personal ways, in length or not. In this case it was about constantly showing no interest to other users' experience of using our forums and causing harm to discussion.

By request of Angolmois himself, the username has been deleted. According to the forum rules the messages still remain to keep the conversations intact and readable.

He asked me to post the following farewells:
Dear forum members, I am distancing myself from the internet and social media (and smart phones), so I thought it would be easier also if I no longer have an active profile in the forum. I wish to thank all active forum members from participation to the discussions we've had, and would like to see more registered members active in the discussions. I have tried my best to keep the forum active with the threads I started, and I hope I have not been a burden in the forums. If it is considered feasible, I might come back some day with a new profile. For now I leave myself to the role of a bystander; might check the forum now and then. Have lively discussions upon the esoteric work!

Thank you Angolmois, for your dynamic conversation & interesting threads!

So, it didn't take me long to be in the shadows of the forum. What I realized during the break was that this place is one of the few worth wile places in the whole of internet, and I still have some need to share my thoughts with other esoterists. Meanwhile I have taken a different attitude towards computers, smart phones and the internet, and I try with the best of my abilities to visit the forum more seldomly but contribute with more depth.

Gangleri who has previously used various other usernames on the forums has been permanently banned due to long time problematic relationship with the fraternity and influencing unwanted narratives and communication on the forum. I removed the last discussion with him as it included potentially sensitive commentary and because this decision is not solely based on that discussion. To some here it might seem like a sudden and surprising decision but we've had to watch his messages for a longer time now. Some of the things he posted caught us off-guard earlier this year because we've gotten used to discussions that have little to none need for moderation. His presence has brought here some offensive language, political narratives that can be discussed elsewhere and other problematic ways of communication. He was given many chances to change his behavior but we had to intervene when certain kind of behavior started to appear again.
