Good News From Our Indian Branch
An Important Announcement Comes at a Very
[From The Mystic Triangle September 1925]
For several years we have referred to the fact that our Grand Lodge and Supreme Temple
in India have been planning
to admit our higher members into full and Honorary membership in their Lodge Academy.
It has required considerable correspondence and a rearrangement of all their
plans and courses of study to make such a plan feasible because of the
First, the Supreme Temple of Amorc in India conducts its work there as a
Monastic Order along the lines of the truly ancient and Oriental method. In
past only those who could go to the Temple
and live in the environs were permitted to have any part in the study and
exercises conducted by the Mystics of that Order.
Secondly, the teachings issued there are of a rare and personal nature. They
cover subjects which have never been put into printed form for general study
and it seemed almost impossible to arrange these long and illuminating lectures
into form for transmission by mail.
For these reasons it has required great work and much time on the part of the
Director of the Order in India
to arrange with the Imperator in America a feasible and convenient
method of sharing the valuable Indian studies with our members in other lands.
The Order in India
is known as The Sovereign Grand Temple "Iasc-Amorc," and conducts its
work through its principal Academy known as The G. T. Monastery. It is located
in beautiful gardens in the outlying section of a small town in the Madras
Under the new arrangements members of the Amorc everywhere who are in or above
the Fourth Grade in the regular Lodges or Groups, or who are in the Postulant's
Grade of the Supreme Lodge, may take up the complete course of study direct
from the Temple in India and prepare themselves for Honorary Membership in the
G. T. Rosicrucian Monastic Order of India. (Do not confuse the term monastic
as having the same meaning as is usually understood in occidental countries.)
In addition to certain obligations which all our Amorc members have already
assumed as Rosicrucians, the only other obligation is the small expense of
postage and clerical charges in preparing and mailing the private lessons.
The Director of the work in India
announces also that they will publish a monthly magazine as a companion to our
MYSTIC TRIANGLE. It will bear the name "MYSTIC CASKET" and will
contain special, instructive articles for students of their courses and for our
As stated above, several years ago we announced that such a plan was under way
and our announcement was a little premature, for many wrote to us about taking
up the Indian course of study, but the plans had not been completed.
We announce now that we are ready to transmit applicants' names to the Director
Therefore all those who are in good standing in the Amorc anywhere, who have
been regular in their studies of the Amorc lectures and lessons, who are in or
above the Fourth Grade in any regular Lodge or Group or in the Postulant's
Grade conducted by mail from headquarters, may send their names and addresses
to the name below stating that they desire to take up the Indian study. To
these persons we will send an outline of the work of the G. T. Temple and
advise them how to enter that work.
Address your letters on this subject to "Indian G. T. Secretary,"
care of Amorc, 843 Octavia Street,
San Francisco, California.
Please do not write on this subject in any general letter to the Supreme
Secretary, or mix your correspondence with other subjects. Make it a separate
letter addressed only as above. (Write at once, but bear in mind that after
November 1, 1925, the address should be care of Amorc, Rosicrucian Square, Memorial
Boulevard, Tampa, Florida.)
