TEMPLE OF THE
A Twenty-First Century Initiatic Mystery School for the New Humanity
Logo Digitized by Scott Shubert
THE ANCIENT GRAAL
The Graal or "Grail" mysteries existed in Western Europe long before the advent of Christianity. The Graal was the "Graded Path of Initiation," comparable to the Lam Rim of Tibetan Buddhism. It comprised both male and female initiatic mysteries. In ninth century Christian Europe the Graal traditions had been preserved and merged with Roman-Hellenistic initiatic traditions to illuminate an esoteric Celtic school through the work of the legendary Graalmeister (Grailmaster) known as Trevrizent or Treverizent.
In the ensuing Carolingian Renaissance, Trevrizent was depicted as the maternal uncle of Parsifal in the Arthurian legends, where the "Holy Grail" was associated with the legendary Eucharistic Cup of the Lord's Supper, chivalric orders, and spiritual questing. But alchemical, gnostic, and other schools who kept alive the Western Mystery Tradition and its Holy Graal paths revered the Graalmeister Treverizent as their archetypal Adept, Initiate, and Guardian of the Holy Mountain of Initiation. The inner orders of the Knights Templar and their Companions, as well as those of the Rosicrucian movement and esoteric Freemasonry, were to greater and lesser degrees based upon ancient Graal traditions as well, but further merged with Middle Eastern and Eastern initiatic tradition that found its way to Europe through the migration of the so-called Gypsies (from India), trade routes, and cross-cultural chivalric fraternity.
The Temple of the Holy Grail is a "contacted" Order through the Greek Master 'Ilaryion or Hilarion, who was an associate of Mme. Blavatsky and an adept greatly admired by her, according to her own accounts. She tells of his final journey into Tibet, after which no more was known of him. However, while Blavatsky was trained in the lower-grade initiatic orders of a Tibetan Outer Kalachakra school (Stanzas of Dzyan, etc.), it seems that Hilarion advanced through Generation and Completion Stages of the Inner Tantra and achieved true Mastery.
Theosophy describes Hilarion as a Mahachohan, Kumara, Manu or Annunciator of the Sixth Root Race or New Humanity--in previous incarnations St. Paul, Iamblichus, and the American Indian adept Hiawatha. It was Hilarion who contacted the founding Grailmaster of T:.H:.G:. and continues to guide him through refinement of First and Second Order Empowerments of this new manifestation of the Graal paths.

Cost, Contact, and HOW TO BEGIN
The Temple of the Holy Grail (T:.H:.G:.) is an Initiatic Mystery School for mature women and men who feel ready to privately undertake advanced esoteric spiritual training in order to anonymously serve human and planetary evolution. Its First Order Empowerments are safe, potent transmissions employing a new kind of dynamic methodology given by Spiritual Hierarchy to promote the self-evolution of contemporary disciples. They require a minimum of time and practice to produce optimal results.
Templars work independently through private ritual, Skype mentoring, and online password-protected multimedia instruction regardless of location.
Annual Wesak Initiation confers Grail Talisman, ritual materials, and Apostolic liturgical authorities through which all Empowerments may be received privately according to lunar or solar cycles.
The Empowerments constitute a high-tech internal alchemy that can bring to fruition spiritual and psychic qualities already developed in the souls of many twenty-first century disciples. The techniques developed in First Order Empowerments include harmonic intoning, mudra, higher triad meditation, antahkarana attunement, long-life practice, healing, microcosmic elemental mastery, exorcism, theurgy, liturgics, and elements of Grail Priesthood. Full Priesthood training is offered as a separate curriculum through the Home Temple Priesthood at http://www.hometemple.org. Home Temple Priesthood training is required in order to accomplish the last two Empowerments (Liturgist and completion of Root Chakra Empowerment), which train the Initiate in Grail Priesthood, theurgical operation, and preparation for Advancement into the Second Order Christ-Melchizedek Tantra.
Empowerment for Effectiveness in Service
The purpose of T:.H:.G:. is to empower people dedicated to a life of service, regardless of what their work or position in society might be. All fields of human endeavor have sacred dimensions that Grail Teachings, Sacraments, and Empowerments can potentiate and inspire. Admission to the Initiatic process and First Order Empowerments opens new dimensions of effective and invisible service in all life endeavors, whether professional, artistic, medical, educational, religious, commercial, social, domestic, or manual labor.
Probation and Application for Initiation
Preparatory lessons and practices for Initiands or potential Initiates who want to investigate T:.H:.G:. are available as eleven hours of lecture and the book entitled Initiation into the Grail Mysteries. These can be ordered through the Home Temple Bookstore. Since Initiation can be done only at the Shamballa Full Moon of Wesak in the spring, Initiands who begin study far in advance can supplement their studies with modules from the Wisdom Seminars site to help them refine skills in harmonic intoning, higher triad meditation, and other elements that are introduced in the preparatory lessons. If they wish to complete the entire First Order Empowerments of T:.H:.G:., they will need to undertake concurrent Priesthood training through the Home Temple as well.
COMMENTS BY INITIATES
"Rarely in the annals of history has a new concept come as powerful as T:.H:.G:. The Grail Master is one of the most learned men that I have ever known who has been able to remain in contact with humanity in order to spread love and benediction."
Eugene Whitworth, M.A., Ph.D., D.O.J.S.
Author of The Nine Faces of Christ, Genesis, The Jaguar Prince, et.al; Founder of the Great Western Brotherhood and Great Western University; Supreme Minister, Temple of the Jade Sun; Bishop Templar T:.H:.G:.; deceased
"The reason the Temple of the Holy Grail has to be taken seriously is that its Empowerments really do work. I have done a great many esoteric spiritual practices in my seventy-odd years, but I have never found anything to compare with the power and efficacy of the Temple Empowerments. It is in that fact that the true authority of the Temple lies."
H. E. Count George Boyer, D.D., Th.D., C.C.M.S.
Grand Master and Lord Abbot, The Healing, Teaching, and Chivalric Order of St. Michael and St. Raphael; Bishop Templar, Knight, and Pontifex, OSMTH (Knights Templar); Bishop Emeritus, Apostolic Episcopal Church; Superior, Guardians of the Way
"I found the Temple of the Holy Grail when I was researching topics of Templar spirituality, on a personal Quest for further Light in my spiritual life. Even that I was fascinated by the teachings, I found the spiritual practices even more meaningful and more profound. Through the practices, I gathered a sense of a balanced discipline which allowed me to reconnect with the forces of nature and the basic energies of the Planet on one side, and the higher spiritual forces on the other. Through the practices, I was able to make contact with the Egggregor of the Temple, an intensely luminous spiritual force, clean, powerful, a real promise for the future of the Servers of Humanity which are being trained by the T:.H:.G:.
"In summary, the Temple is firmly rooted in the past through deep connections into the Initiatic and Apostolic chains of power of the Western tradition; but is looking into the future as an innovative, fresh and vital Esoteric School."

THE SHAMANIC ART OF HARMONIC INTONING AND CHANT
THG Candidates must develop skills in Harmonic Intoning to operate the First Order Empowerments. We recommend that you register for the Seminar entitled THE SHAMANIC ART OF HARMONIC INTONING AND CHANT at Wisdom Seminars and begin working with the technique before operating the Initiatic Vigil, if possible. It may take many weeks of practice before your ears can discern the overtones, and months before you gain the ability to isolate and produce the seven main overtones at will. The E-book and narrated multimedia course are available for $55 at the Wisdom Seminars site for those with fast internet connection. Dr. Keizer also presents and mentors the seminar as a Friday night workshop before the Saturday Yeshua Workshop on his lecture tour. See HERE for his worldwide lecture schedule.
The latest point in any initiatic year that a person can begin Probationary studies and practices is normally February 15, although exceptions can be made. That is because an absolute minimum of six to eight weeks of daily practice is needed to develop the basic skill of evoking the White Light or Iliaster. Without this skill, the Initiatic Vigil will not be successful.
After completing the recorded lectures and reading materials (no later than February), Probationers may apply to the Grailmaster for Initiatic Vigil and Wesak Initiation instruction and consecrated materials. The application is the same one used in the Home Temple Priesthood to admit Postulants for Holy Orders (see APPLICATION ). It requires three character references and a telephone interview. The first materials delivered to the successful applicant include the gamatheii with tapes and instructions for performing the Initiatic Vigil on the Full Moon of Easter-Passover. After this the applicant receives tapes and instructions for analyzing the results of the Vigil as well as sacred materials such as Temple Talisman, Consecrated Hosts, and other things necessary to perform the Wesak Liturgy of Initiation and to undertake the First Empowerment.
There is no discrimination by sex, age, race, or sexual orientation. However, in their written application, candidates for Initiation must demonstrate evidence of spiritual maturity, dedication, and achievement in human service. They must also provide email addresses of three people who can vouch for their character and motivation.
The Initiatic Vigil
The all-night full moon Vigil is done on or within 72 hours of the Passover-Easter Full Moon. It may be done indoors or outdoors. The information gleaned from the theurgical skrying and other practices done during the night is analyzed to gain information about previous transmigrations and incarnations to be used in the First Empowerment. The initiand is not given the analysis material until after the Vigil has been completed. The Initiatic Vigil is a demanding but very fruitful process.
The Process of Wesak Initiation
Initiation into the Temple of the Holy Grail is done once each year at the exact time of the Wesak or Shamballa Full Moon. For T:.H:.G:., Wesak is the full moon following the Easter-Passover Moon, or the second Full Moon after the Vernal Equinox. This is sometimes in variance with the Buddhist date for Wesak.
Initiation is done by Spiritual Hierarchy through the the Eggregore of the Temple. The Initiand is instructed by audio and video tapes as well as written materials in the procedures for opening the Eggregore of the Temple, and is authorized to operate the Liturgy for this purpose. In cooperation with Grailmaster, Grail Mother, the Bishops Templar of the Round Table, the Augoeides of the individual Initiand or Candidate for Initiation, and Hierarchy, the Initiation is transmitted.
Each Initiand must have successfully completed the following preparations for Initiation:
1. the Probationary Studies (internet audio and text files, or hard-copy book and tapes);
2. development of Temple Meditation for the evocation of the Iliaster or Christ Light;
3. the work of the Initiatic Vigil;
4. the Vigil Analysis.
In addition, he or she must have been formally accepted and authorized for Initiation, trained in the Liturgy of the Chalice, and supplied with the Temple Talisman, sacred materials, and Consecrated Elements for private Wesak Initiation and First Empowerment.
During the ritual of the Wesak Initiation, the Temple Talisman of the new Initiate is activated. He or she consecrates a violet length of yarn for the Necklace Practice. The coming month will be devoted to this practice and the First Empowerment Studies.
Without formal application and acceptance into the Temple and Eggregore of the Temple for Initiation, it is impossible for a person to receive the Initiation. Without the Initiation, regardless of what materials, texts, tapes, and supplies a person may have obtained, it is not possible to receive the First Order Empowerments. Furthermore, it is not possible for any Initiate or non-Initiate to misuse or abuse the theurgical operations of the Grail Sacrament and Rites. All of these conditions have been established in the Eggregore of the Temple.
Progress Through the First Order Empowerments
When Wesak Initiation and First Empowerment have been completed, the Initiate will request and receive sacramental materials and password for audio and printed instruction and practices for the first part of Root Chakra Empowerment and the Long-Life Empowerment. Like the Initiation, these will be done with a combination of daily practices and special sacramental work at the exact times of New and Full Moons. The time of the actual Empowerment ritual depends upon the moon. The Initiate must prepare to have privacy for sacramental work at these times.
If it is not feasible to do the Empowerment on one full moon, the Initiate can do it on the next full moon. There is no time limit for receiving Empowermentsonly a proper sequence of order. Once an Empowerment has been received, however, it is the work of the Initiate to ripen and bring the powers awakened into fulfillment. This is especially true of the Long-Life Empowerment, which must become a part of continuous daily practice once it has been received.
When the Root Chakra has been started and the Long-Life Empowerment has been received and established, the Initiate will request and receive sacramental materials and password for audio and printed instruction and practices for Heart of the Master and Healer Empowerments.
When these are completed, and before the next Easter-Wesak season of a year following Initiation, the Initiate will request and receive password for audio and printed instruction and practices for the Antahkarana Building Empowerment, which must be done in coordination with the Wesak moon cycles. IIf the Initiate is Ordained in valid Apostolic Succession or completing Home Temple Ordination Studies, he/she will also request and receive password for audio and printed instruction and practices for the Liturgist Empowerment including the final parts of Root Chakra Empowerment. Then he or she will work personally with the Grailmaster by telephone, fax, postal mail, and/or e-mail to document and accomplish the theurgical operation with elemental spirits. When success has been demonstrated, the Grailmaster will certify that both Empowerments will have been received.
It is possible to complete the First Order Empowerments over a thirteen-month period and be authorized to begin Portal practices for Advancement into the Second Order Tantra.
When all seven of the First Order Empowerment have been completed, the Initiate may request formal dubbing as a Dame or Knight of the +OMR+ by the Grailmaster in a Temple Convocation. Many Initiates combine this with Ordination into Home Temple Priesthood if they have done concurrent Priesthood training, and Advancement into Second Order, since all of these require travel and Convocation.
The prerequisite for Advancement to Second Order is Apostolic Ordination. An Initiate must hold valid Ordination as a Priest or Priestess in the Home Temple (cf. APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION ) or other valid Apostolic lineages, or must have completed studies for Ordination into Priesthood. Those who have received Apostolic Succession outside of the Home Temple program may be required to make up deficiencies or amplify previous training before being advanced.
Advancement into the Second Order authorizes an Initiate to undertake the Christ-Melchizedek Tantra Generation and Completion Stage practices. A sequence of private Portal preparations, studies, and practices is undertaken at the spring equinox leading to C-Day Vault Initiation, which can be operated only by the Grailmaster and/or Grail Mother. Candidates must travel at their own expense for this Advancement and bear their own costs. The Generation and Completion Stage practices require long-term commitment and ongoing personal instruction by Grailmaster or Grail Mother.
Summary of First and Second Order Empowerments
FIRST ORDER EMPOWERMENTS
FIRST EMPOWERMENT, or Empowerment Over Dark Forces[Two Consecutive Full Moons]
Initiation confers the authority to advance on the Path. There are many steps, the Temple of the Grail seems very far away, and spiritual danger lurks at every turn. But the First Empowerment confers the same powers over Dark Forces given by Mar Yeshua to his legendary seventy-two disciples. We are shown the Path and empowered with tools to protect ourselves and those near us. It is now our work to ripen that Empowerment and bring it to fulfillment.
ROOT CHAKRA, Part One: Practices and Work with
Elementals and the Blessing Way [Introduced Concurrently with Long-Life Empowerment]
LONG-LIFE EMPOWERMENT [One New-Moon Cycle]
Password is sent upon email request after confirmation that First Empowerment has been completed.
We stand before the Grail Castle. We have been given Empowerment to work with invisible subtle forces, including those that optimize the length and quality of our lives. We approach the great door, which faces West. Looking up, we see a sculptured face of the Green Man with ears like a faun. The form of the Temple is octagonal. It is a mandala of the macrocosm and of our microcosmic souls.
HEART OF THE MASTER EMPOWERMENT, or
Initiation as Chela of Master Jesus [Two
Consecutive Full Moons]
HEALER EMPOWERMENT: Work with Cells and Elementaries; Acceptance as Companion of +OMR+ [One New-Moon Cycle]
Password is sent upon email request after confirmation that Second and Third Empowerments have been completed.
ACCEPTANCE INTO THE
TEACHING AND HEALING ORDER OF ST. MICHAEL AND ST. RAPHAEL (OMR)
Password to begin studies to raise status from Page to Squire.
We enter into the Grail Temple. We draw near to the One signified by the Green Man. He is Mar Yeshua, the Master Jesus, and the true Grailmaster. He develops within us our innate powers of healing and the ability to evoke healing in others. He accepts us as close disciples. We are accepted for training in a true and valid Order of Knights and Dames of the Graal, and we see now that the Grail Castle is the esoteric structure built by the Emperor Von Hohenstauffen in the 13th century for meetings of the international Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Pactio Secreta.
ANTAHKARANA-BUILDING EMPOWERMENT:[Easter Full Moon to Wesak Full Moon]
Password is sent in time for Easter-Wesak moons one year after Initiation upon email request after confirmation that Fourth and Fifth Empowerments have been completed. If Initiate has been Ordained as Deacon(ess) or Priest(ess), he/she will receive the Liturgist and Final Root Chakra Empowerments as part of this packet.
We enter into the central courtyard. Looking up, we see the sky and on the eight sides we see windows for study and meeting rooms at a higher level. Returning to the interior hall, we enter one of the lower-level rooms. We observe that the ceiling is divided hexagonally. Here we develop studies and practices that may allow us to eventually ascend to the higher level for advanced work.
LITURGIST or SEVENTH EMPOWERMENT: Advanced Training in Harmonic Intonation, Mudra, Theurgical Operation, and Grail Sacramental Liturgy[One New-Moon Cycle] with concurrent completion of ROOT CHAKRA EMPOWERMENT. After full solar year of practices; done on Full Moon. Preparation for Completion of First-Order Empowerments and Dubbing as Knight or Dame in OMR
Only Initiates trained in Home Temple Priesthood are allowed to progress into the Completion of Root Chakra and Establishment of the Seventh Empowerment, both of which confer Grail Priesthood. The Seventh or Liturgist Empowerment requires "proving" through communication and documentation of theurgical operation to control weather under personal supervision of Grailmaster.
LINEAGES OF THE WESTERN MYSTERY TRADITION IN T:.H:.G:.
All extant Apostolic lineages as well as the major European initiatic orders and their charters flow by live transmission into the Eggregore of the Temple. These synthesize a new, evolutionary, and transformative impulse of Hierarchy generated through the Christ. They constitute the Grail Priesthood and its Mysteries, which are transmitted in the language of world adeptship (Paracelsian, Rosicrucian, Kabbalistic, Theosophical, Agni Yoga, Tibetan Buddhist, Gnostic, etc.). However, The Grail Mysteries transcend these in a presentation hitherto unknown and done for the most part orally on cassette tape.
GRAIL PRIESTHOOD, APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION, AND THE HOME TEMPLE
First Order Initiates are licensed as Subdeacons of the Home Temple Priesthood and taught basic liturgical skills to do the sacred theurgical operations required for each Empowerment. If they choose to advance into Grail Priesthood after Fifth Empowerment, they must undertake the Home Temple Priesthood training program concurrently with First Order work. See http://www.hometemple.org
All historically extant lines of legal and valid Apostolic Succession from Mar Yeshua, the Master Jesus, are transmitted in the Holy Orders of the Home Temple Priesthood. These lineages include the Roman Catholic, Old Catholic, and Syrian-Antiochene, each flowing through the Apostle Peter, as well as Coptic, Armenian, Greek Orthodox, Greek Melchite, Syro-Chaldaean, Chaldaean Uniate, Anglican, Irish, Welsh, French Non-Juring Bishops, Mariavite, Russian Orthodox, Syrian-Malabar, Syrian-Gallican, and Corporate Reunion. They also include the clandestine Gnostic Apostolic Hieratic lineage of the French Templars dating from the twelfth century.
THE EUROPEAN INITIATIC ORDERS AND LINEAGES OF T:.H:.G:.
The Ill. Bro. John Yarker, Jn.: 33 , 90 , 96 , Initiated and Installed James Heard as the first Vicarius Salomonis, Conservator of the Rite of the Ancient Universal Pan-Sophic Rite of Masonry, (which synthesized all esoteric European lineages in the late 19th century), who transmitted to Ill. Bro. Hugh G. deWillmott, who transmitted to H.S.H. Duc de Palatine, who transmitted to Bishop and Count George Boyer, Grand Archon, Brotherhood and Order of the Pleroma, Hermetic Brotherhood of Light, Sanctuary of the Gnosis (which have authority to transmit the following extant lineages), who warranted the Grailmaster, on behalf of the Temple of the Holy Grail, to carry forth the authorities embodied in the Pansophic Rite as Grand Master of each, including:
ILLUMINIST: Order of the Illuminati; Order of the Martiniste; Brotherhood of Luxor
TEMPLAR: Knights of the Holy Ghost; of St. John; of Malta, of the Holy Sepulchre; of the Temple
ROSICRUCIAN: Order of the True Rosy Cross; Order of the Ecclesiae Rosicrucianae Catholicae; Hidden Church of the Holy Grail
MASONIC: Ancient and Primitive Rite; Rite of Memphis; Rite of Mizraim; Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite; Swedenborgian Rite; Order of the Rose Croix of Hiredom; Order of the Holy Royal Arch of Enoch
TRANSMITTED SEPARATELY THROUGH RICHARD, DUC DE PALATINE: Fratres Lucis or Brotherhood/Sisterhood of the Illuminati founded in 15th century Florence, Italy. The Grailmaster is the only valid living Grand Master of the authentic Illuminati (not to be confused with the defunct so-called Bavarian Illuminati--the subject of various conspiracy theories)
It is not necessary for Templars to seek initiation into any of these orders. Rather, the Temple Teachings advance and elevate to a higher octave the essential gnosis of these traditional European schools to serve the spiritual needs of the New Humanity--men, women, and young adults.
However, many Templars do seek admittance to PANSOPHIC FREEMASONRY, a valid male-female branch of Freemasonry founded by Grand Master Keizer in 1996.
In its First Order, the M:.O:.T:. (Martinist Order of the Temple) offers all three of the Martinist Philosphical Degrees through S::I::III.
Admission as a Companion to the Teaching, Healing, and Chivalric Order of St. Michael and St. Raphael is offered to those who complete the Healer Empowerment of First Order. Upon successful completion of all seven First Order Empowerments, Templars may choose to be dubbed Knights or Dames.
The First Order Temple training also offers a revised form of Operational or Theurgical Elus-Cohen training for Templar Priesthood as part of the Liturgist or Seventh Empowerment.
THE THEURGICAL LITURGY OF THE HOLY GRAIL
The Grailmaster and Temple are Keepers of the True Grail, which is the Eternal Sang Real or Divine Royal Blood [San Greal in Christian esoteric tradition, "Holy Grail," often confused with the Grail Chalice itself]. The Grail is the Divine sacrificial energy--normally invisible and intangible--that nurtures evolutionary unfoldment in the physical universe and among beings developing amidst the disharmony, darkness, and chaos of this nethermost plane of existence. It is the power that sanctifies matter, quickening its spiritual vibration and level of refinement. The Grail is the actual substance of Divine Blessing [O.E. "sprinkling with sacrificial Blood"] or Divine Bliss ["Blood sanctification"]. It is the Philosophers Stone, Elixir, or Amritha that transforms the lower into the Higher, expands the crystallized or contracted Heart-consciousness, and mediates inspiration, guidance, selfless service, and Divine Love.
In the Liturgy of the Chalice, the Divine Nectars, Fragrances, and Essences of the Holy Grail are poured out as a potent blessing and nurture for the spiritual evolution of all beings in all worlds, and especially for those on this plane of existence. First Order Templars are trained in Theurgical Operations of the Liturgy and daily practice of the Blessing Way, benefiting immensely from these works when carried out with fiery, selfless devotion to humanity, the Divine Will, and all beings. The True Grail is poured out for the sake of the New Humanity and the New World that is coming into manifestation. It is a Divine Theurgical Sacrament for higher human and planetary Initiation.
