April’s topic will be conducted by Bro. Kale Johnson in a study of Freemasonry: What Makes a Person a Master?
After a short lecture, a discussion and debate by the group will follow.
Synopsis: At the Feet of the Master is a book written by Jiddu Krishnamurti (Alcyone), a student and legal son of Annie Besant. Many believed he was imbued with sacred knowledge from a postulated embodied spiritual entity. This was believed to be done through a mystical process while he slept. Upon waking it is said that Alcyone underwent the laborious task of writing down in great detail everything he was taught from this entity. The resulting work, rich with its wisdom, is what we find today in At the Feet of the Master. It’s a relatively short work but the practical use of the knowledge is vast and those teachings can be found universally throughout the beliefs of many wise people.
To be a Master is a special achievement. There are many different paths that one can take to become a master. There are many different masters and the qualities of these masters range. But what does it mean to become a Master? What qualities are needed in a Master? In Freemasonry, the term “Master” is quite familiar and every Initiate will come to use this word. During this discussion, we will use the writing of Alcyone’s At the Feet of the Master to analyze the nature of the Master and its relation to Freemasonry.
The Masonic Philosophical Society embraces the concept of learning, not for school, but for life, and believes that all men, who seek it, deserve access to continued education. We further embrace the concept of a community environment, where ideas can be shared and debated in an open forum. From the seven liberal arts to the arcane, we seek to gain and to share the knowledge that is the legacy of mankind.
