Since all spiritual light emerged from the same source, likewise there is a fundamental, universal root for all rituals and stages of study, in all churches, temples, lodges, and mosques. These are the primordial sacraments, "sacred acts," of the Divine.
Every spiritual aspirant must pass through stages of study or initiation in their progress towards the Light. These stages are marked by rituals that symbolize the responsibilities they take on, and the benefits they will receive. This comprehensive course introduces the fundamental importance of the initiations and rituals practiced in all religions. The standard sacraments of Western traditions, such as baptism (mikvah), eucharist (passover), and marriage, can also be found in Buddhism, Hinduism, and more.

"We must accept our burdens gracefully, for when the student takes the Path, he is often plunged into ranges of experience which other men escape, in order to teach him to have command of himself in his environment, and thus learn the reason why he has been placed there."
