Brotherhood of the White TempleAdvancement of Metaphysical and Spiritual Knowledge
What does the Brotherhood teach?
The Brotherhood gives to its members a complete instruction in ALL of the fundamental laws of the Cosmos. It teaches the individual how to develop his own inner powers so that he becomes perfectly balanced on the three phases of manifestation, physical, mental and spiritual. It teaches Universal Law in all of its aspects, so that the student learns the Key-Truths, which enable him to strip the veil from the symbols of all philosophies and religions and find the true God behind all manifestations. These Lessons are carefully prepared so that the student may learn the fundamental laws, not only of the material but also of the higher mental and spiritual planes. All Lessons remain the property of the Brotherhood, being only LOANED for the use of the student, and must be returned if the membership is terminated. The instruction is separated into the following divisions:
Weekly: Church lessons
Ancient Wisdom Teachings
Truth Sheet (Information from Brotherhood headquarters)
Truth Workers Guild Lessons (Lectures by Brotherhood
Minsters and Ministers-In-Training
Monthly: Fellowship of the Avatar Lessons
Three large issues a year: Light On The Path magazine
The Brotherhood of the White Temple is a correspondence Church. It offers a series of lessons on every branch of occult, metaphysical and Spiritual Science, including healing. These lessons are divided into four Neophyte and twelve Temple grades. These sixteen grades require approximately four and one-half years to complete. Each grade has from twelve to twenty-seven lessons, one lesson being mailed each week. Upon completion of this course, the student may then be invited to enter the Inner Work of the Brotherhood.
A contribution of $25 dollars for a one-time entrance fee and $50 dollars membership dues for the first month is required, which will be returned if the application is rejected for any reason. A further contribution of $50 dollars each month is required as long as one remains a member. Upon being accepted for membership, you will be mailed the first lesson, a membership card and a contribution card.
What the Church teaches
The Brotherhood recognizes the fact that each soul manifests through a different vehicle, and a different degree of consciousness and development. It knows that the problems of each individual are different and for this reason it desires to help you with your own particular obstacle. You may write the Brotherhood an explanation of your particular problem and you will be shown how you may eliminate it according to Divine Law.
It recognizes that perfect health is a vital factor in development, for if one is constantly beset by pain and illness, it is hard for the full power of consciousness to be turned toward the Divine Light. For this reason, it teaches the laws of perfect health according to the Divine Plan. It shows you how to overcome all physical disturbance, so that your efforts toward Spiritual unfoldment will be unhindered.

All of the work given is for the purpose of developing your own inner power, so that you may become a perfect instrument for the Divine Consciousness to manifest through. You learn to find the Great Masters of Wisdom, and coordinate your efforts with theirs, so that more Light may shine on a world of darkness. You learn how to find your own part in the Great Plan, so that you may perform the works best suited to your own talents.
Ancient Wisdom Teachings
In addition to the metaphysical Church lessons issued to the members of the Brotherhood, a course of lessons and sermons on metaphysical and religious instructions will be given bi-weekly. The Ancient Wisdom Teachings lessons contain explanations of the original Gnostic teaching of Jesus with metaphysical explanations and daily suggestions for spiritual concentration. The lessons are prepared with the idea of giving the seeker a correct understanding of the principles of the Divine as expounded by Jesus, and the great Prophets of the Christian Bible.
It is the belief of the Brotherhood that the true teachings of the Bible have been lost by the orthodox churches. It is the purpose of the Brotherhood to restore these teachings to their original form, making them understandable to everyone, even the little child.
To all members of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings, a lesson will be sent for every week of the month. These lessons very closely interconnect and support the teachings in the Church lessons. These two units of study give a greater and clearer understanding of the mystical and occult truths and will explain the manner in which the seeker may utilize the truth principles in his everyday life. Therefore, enrollment in the Ancient Wisdom Teachings is required for those that enroll in the Church course. The Church lessons are designed to raise the inner self to liberation of the soul and spirit so that one can attune with the Avatar and other Masters throughout the universe.
Begin Your JourneyNo knowledge is forbidden to man, when he has, by his own efforts, made himself ready to receive; so he who has ears to hear, let him hear - Dr. M. Doreal
I have been a member of the Brotherhood of the White Temple for close to 45 years. I have met many members of the Brotherhood through attending the classes which were held in Shamballa. The Brotherhood members I met were some of the finest people I have ever known. Many of them have become lifelong friends.
The teachings of God and the Universal laws of this organization far surpass and are far more pure than any other teachings I have ever come in contact with. These teachings are not, however, for the shallow minded, but are only for the most serious students of truth. Those who cannot see beyond the surface of materially will see no value in these deep and wonderful teachings. If one is looking for an easy path to self-aggrandizement, or for power over others, they need to look elsewhere.
