Study Ancient Mystery Teachings
There is a SECRET order that teaches the Sublime Occult Mysteries. Many make such claims—few possess the ability to fulfil them. Nevertheless, the Ancient Holy Mysteries have been re-established in order that GENUINE seekers may find the TRUE LIGHT.
Only students who are sincerely interested and prepared to work with determination and devotion for many years will be accepted. In his endeavours the Student will find no glamour and no personal contacts, and "mystery-mongers" and "thrill-seekers" will waste their time making enquiry.
If you REALLY want to study the Ancient Teachings in their entirety as never before revealed, then this is your opportunity to do so.
We said in our introduction above, that 'many make such claims.' Among such claimants are organisations that advertise in print and online claiming to represent the mysterious 'illuminati' we hear so much about nowadays. In connection with this, some visitors seem to be under the misapprehension that we are affiliated with a so-called 'order of the hidden masters' selling books by 'He and She' which trades under the name IRS from an accommodation address at 10 York Place, Edinburgh, which appeared on the Internet in the last few years. We wish to make it quite clear that we have no connection with this company or any other occult order, school or group, with the sole exception mentioned further down this page.
If we examine the claims of such organisations critically and research the personalities behind them, we invariably find that they have more to do with making money and personal glory than the dissemination of the Ancient Mystery Teachings. No wonder genuine seekers are highly suspicious of anything they read online or in print published by organisations that make such claims. Let us say at once that this Secret order is not associated with any organisations that pursue political aims, or offer their members social and political advancement, wealth or material power. The True Spiritual Masters are not concerned with politics or statecraft in any form Can you name one Master who ever involved themselves in politics? Or a True Teacher who was interested in personal glory, social advancement or riches? Need we give examples? Jesus is one, Gautama Buddha is another. Such great Souls have better things to do with their time on earth and better ways to lead Mankind toward the One Light of Truth than from a throne or Presidential palace!
For this reason, if you read about 'occult orders' that claim to number kings and presidents among their members, or say that this or that famous occultist of the past was a member of their organisation, you may be quite certain that the only thing they are 'masters' of is slick and clever advertising! One of the very best articles we have ever read about the so-called 'Illuminati' can be found on the Internet, but we warn you that it pulls no punches in exposing the nonsensical rigmarole surrounding this hot topic. No, the True Spiritual Teachers and Hidden Masters are something quite different, as you can read elsewhere on this website. The Secret order we represent is not interested in recruiting, manipulating, coercing or brainwashing people for political or financial ends. Nor does it accept those who seek these things as members. You can read more about our aims and Teachings below and by clicking the links at the top of this page.
Why 'SECRET' order?
Secrecy has a very bad press nowadays and is associated in the public mind with everything that is evil. But this was not always the case. You may be surprised to learn that there are many GOOD reasons for keeping something secret, and this applies especially to the Ancient Mystery Teachings taught by this Secret order. The simple reason for the order's unalterable and fixed rule of Secrecy is that it aims at a total suppression of the PERSONAL element which leads so often to disruption and strife amongst even the finest and most elevated groups of Occult Workers.
This also cancels out all chance of the personal glorification of one—or more—at the expense of the rest of the Members. This is an old and well established Occult law; too often unknown, ignored or forgotten. This law applies to ALL our members, whose identities are secret, from the highest to the lowest, and NONE may know another except under very special circumstances and for special reasons. For this reason the order does not engage in group activities, rituals or meetings of any kind. Those who are seeking such contacts will waste their time making enquiry. This is also the reason why this Secret order has no NAME by which it is known in the outer world. If it did, it would not be secret, this much will obvious to all. So if you hear of, or encounter other occult orders or groups which claim to be 'secret', yet advertise their name in print and online, you may be quite sure they have no connection with us at all.
You can read more many good reasons for secrecy in the excellent article published on our affiliated website—occult-mysteries. We also recommend the Occult FAQ to be found on the same webpage which provides clear and sane answers to many questions seekers after occult knowledge ask.
About this order's Teachings
The order's Teachings are based on exactly the same principles—though considerably extended and modernised in various ways—as the Teachings of the Hierophants of Ancient Egypt, India, Chaldea and Greece, who in their turn received them directly or indirectly from the Great Adepts and Masters of Atlantis. Moreover, these Teachings are absolutely true to the Old Wisdom, without having added to them the entirely misleading and fantastic claims of the lesser occult groups and teachers who meddle with the sacred lore by superimposing upon it their personal speculations and interpretations. Such groups and teachers often mean well, but all they succeed in doing in leading the genuine seeker away from Truth.
This Secret order teaches the Natural Laws of the Universe and NONE of its Teachings are in conflict with the highest ideals of any religion, or those of the great Teachers, such as Jesus and Buddha. These Studies are intended to lift up your Mind to the highest realms where you can discover Peace, Truth, Wisdom and Happiness. By virtue of these Teachings, the Student may enter the 'straight gate which leadeth unto life'—the Gateway to Initiation—to become a Light on the Way and a shining Torch in the Darkness of the gross materialism, which threatens to overwhelm Mankind in these times.
The order teaches by postal correspondence ONLY and is divided into three Groups. The first Group is the Outer Circle, which consists of three Grades. It takes three years to master the teachings of these Grades, and the work may be compared to a University Course of study in Philosophy, Natural and Occult laws and Science, Higher Ethics and Metaphysics. Each Grade contains 50 lectures on various subjects, mailed out to members weekly. The students of the Outer Circle may pass at the end of the three years into the Inner Group. But we wish to make it clear that only those with special attributes, inherent or acquired by deep study, can hope to succeed to the Inner work of the order. The third Group consists of the Great Adepts and Masters of the order. Further information on these Groups and Grades is given in the order's Manifesto (see below).
Each member is placed under the care of a personal teacher to whom they may write with any questions or concerns they have about the work. The order uses no set letters for this purpose, and each and every member is assured of the prompt, personal attention of their teacher at all times. We say this as we know of many lesser orders and groups that do not provide a structured course of learning or personal tuition. The members of such orders are left to their own devices, leading inevitably to dissatisfaction, confusion and disillusionment. By following a method of one-to-one tuition and structured learning, the Secret order provides every one of its members with the opportunity to master the whole of the edifice of occult science under its guidance. It is for this reason, as well as many others, that hardly any members of the Secret order drop out after a few short weeks or months, which is so often the case in many lesser occult orders and groups.

Conditions of Membership
The only overriding conditions for membership are that the order will not accept members who deny the existence of a Supreme Godhead, or Ruler of the Universe, or those who are not willing to obey in every way the Constitutional laws of the Country in which they live either as natives, or resident or temporary visitors. There are no academic qualifications needed for acceptance, but each member is expected to work HARD for their own advancement. In addition, if English is not your first language, or you have difficulty in reading and writing English, you may not be able to understand our teachings. Applications for membership are judged solely on their merits. Although the Secret order does not pry into the private lives of applicants, it knows at once by the manner in which new enquirers approach them whether they are suitable for the work or not; and if they conclude that they are not suitable, they are not accepted under any conditions.
There is no membership fee. The ONLY fees charged are for the sole purpose of writing, printing and posting the lectures, of which the students receive one each week. Moreover, the fees do not cover the cost of the considerable work of providing personal tuition to each member. The current fees work out at less than £7 per week for members resident in the UK, which is considerably less than British universities charge their students! Members who, for genuine reasons, are not able to afford the full fees may pay a reduced amount commensurate with their means until their material circumstances improve. This information is also included in the order's Manifesto and application form.
Our members come from all walks of life and are found in every country of the world. Most occupy humble positions so far as the outside world is concerned. But whatever their social status or background, each has the opportunity to fully master the laws and principles of occult science so that they will lead more useful and happy lives, which, by force of example, will aid mankind in general along its path of more or less blind existence. By means of the Ancient Mystery Teachings taught by this Secret order each member may gain full understanding of the material and spiritual worlds, leading to individual progress, such as they could not have dreamt of before. We would like to make it absolutely clear that all members are entirely free to leave the order at ANY time, without repercussions of ANY sort. Nor does the order tell members what they should or should not think, believe or do. Such interference is against all natural and occult laws.

Some readers have asked us about the ancient Egyptian illustrations used on this website. These have all been taken from the Papyrus of Ani—the most complete and beautifully illuminated of all the copies of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Far from being a collection of supernatural 'spells' intended to ensure the safe passage of the deceased in the afterlife as most Egyptologists believe, this remarkable text is a treatise on the occult sciences. It's Egyptian title was 'The Book of Coming Forth into Day', or the one Light of Truth we have referred to earlier. Its many chapters, and the vignettes or illustrations that accompany the text, were intended for the instruction of the students of the Mystery Schools of Egypt, who were carefully trained over many years to interpret and understand the rich symbolism of the book. The Secret order provides its students with the keys needed to fully understand this book and discover the many occult secrets it contains, which have been lost for over 3,500 years. You can read a full review of the Egyptian Book of the Dead at our affiliated website, occult-mysteries.org, together with detailed publication information and which editions are best.
