"Remember that each one of the nine Initiations of Lesser Mysteries has a musical note and an instrument which produces it." - Samael Aun Weor, The Revolution of Beelzebub

"To want to rapidly become fused with the Innermost without having passed through the nine initiations of Lesser Mysteries is akin to wanting to receive a doctor’s degree in medicine without having studied all the required years at university, or like wanting to be a general without having passed through all the military ranks." - Samael Aun Weor, The Zodiacal Course

"Throughout the Initiations of Lesser Mysteries, the disciple has to pass through the entire tragedy of Golgotha..." - Samael Aun Weor, The Zodiacal Course


"The one who does not know how to fulfill his duties as a simple citizen cannot tread the path of the great mysteries. Many disciples forget the good manners of a sincere and honorable gentleman or lady and become truly irresponsible and even dangerous individuals."

Samael Aun Weor, The Major Mysteries
