The Spirit of Masonry, provides an esoteric view of Freemasonry as part of the eternal spiritual "Quest" - the key to both individual and group progress toward God’s goal for man. The Tibetan Master described Masonry as one of three paths leading to initiation.

"The three main channels through which the preparation for the new age is going on might be regarded as the Church, the Masonic Fraternity and the educational field.…The Masonic Movement when it can be divorced from politics and social ends and from its present paralysing condition of inertia, will meet the need of those who can and should, wield power. It is the custodian of the law; it is the home of the Mysteries and the seat of initiation. It holds in its symbolism the ritual of Deity, and the way of salvation is pictorially preserved in its work. The methods of Deity are demonstrated in its Temples, and under the All-seeing eye the work can go forward. It is a far more occult organisation than can be realised, and is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists."
