[Graal] An Invitation for New Members

Post by Smaragd »

From the introductory text of the lodge:
In its work, Graal lodge emphasizes the esoteric Christ: the path of compassion, buddhi and buddhi-prâna connection. It emphasizes the last sentence of the constitution of The Star of Azazel, especially the last words: ”we strive for the spiritual expansion of individuals and societies under the banner of understanding and love.” It is a purpose of Graal to present the challenge of the bearing of boddhisatva/christ, which must be accepted to the sempiternal ”esoteric esotericism” when stepping on the ascending path.


Renewed in its praxis, Graal lodge opens its doors wider for the the members of The Star of Azazel and welcomes all those interested in its work. Come the winter solstice, a path of study based on a grade system will begin, in to which the first members are now welcomed. The purpose of the three-stepped grade system is to offer the members support and structure to the practice and to prepare them for the esotericism of the fraternity. The path formed by the grades goes through the symbolism and the most important teachings of the fraternity. It is based on multiple choices and individual path of praxis, which is turned open by keys formed by virtues. The renewal of Graal commences a completely new way of work and path within The Star of Azazel which hopefully answers to the challenge of informality the members often wrestle with. The operations of the Graal lodge focuses geographicly around Helsinki, but membership, and the journey through the grade system is possible without physically participating in the meetings of the lodge. Thus international members will also have possibility to join the work.

Applying for Membership

Graal is applied to by letter sent to the fraternity's common P.O. Box. In addition to the general introduction and opening the current individual situation, the freeform application must include what the applicant expects from the membership of Graal, as well as the individual relation to the lodges emphases. The recommended length of the application is 1 to 2 pages. Two personal referees are needed. An acceptable referee is a guide of another lodge the applicant is a member of, or a member of Graal lodge, who is not a guide to a grade. The referees must be mentioned in the application.

Graal membership requires a minimum of one year membership in another lodge of The Star of Azazel. Applying to the lodge also means that the applicant accepts Graal's hierarchical structure.

During a year, there are two possible windows for applications and joining the lodge. Periods of application run through January to February & from July to August. The accepted members will join the lodge on the solstice following the application period at hand, either on the winter solstice or the summer solstice.

More information of the lodge, its work and the grade system can be asked in this thread or from the guides of the grades, that is me, Fatuus or Nefastos. Welcome aboard!
