by Bro. Terence Satchell, Mt. Rushmore Lodge #220, Grand Lodge of South Dakota.

¨ A GUIDE FOR THE NEW ESOTERIC FREEMASON
by Bro. William Steve Burkle KT, 32°, Scioto Lodge No. 6, Chillicothe, G.L. of F.&A.M. of Ohio.

This paper presents a viewpoint which supports that esotericism is a legitimate element of the Craft and exists by design, and that Freemasonry is the inheritor of a great wealth of secret knowledge which has been encoded in our rituals, symbols, and traditions. It argues that many Blue Lodges are not equipped to Mentor the new Mason who expresses esoteric interests in the Craft. This paper also presents a description of what constitutes Esoteric Masonic practice, identifies reading materials (a topical list) for esoteric study, and provides a suggested curriculum (linked to the topical reading lists)which provides the new Esoteric Mason with a thorough course of study.

¨ A MODERN EXAMINATION OF THE LANDMARKS OF FREEMASONRY
by Bro. Terence Satchell, Mt. Rushmore Lodge #220, Grand Lodge of South Dakota.

This paper reexamines the Landmarks specified by Mackey and Pound. It establishes the criteria which these two authors established to define the individual Landmarks of the fraternity and determines whether these criteria were followed. It also uses more recent documents in Masonic history to see if the fraternity continues to regard these customs as Landmarks and examines the repercussions of not recognizing certain customs as the Landmarks of the order. Finally, the paper creates a set of Landmarks based on this reexamination which could alleviate much debate.

by Bro. Prof. Dr. U. Gauthamadas, Lodge Prudentia No.369, Grand Lodge of India.

A Freemason is informed, during his initiation, that the practices of moral and social virtue are the foundations of Freemasonry that distinguish it from other institutions. However, the terms ?moral? and ?virtue? are used rather loosely today. This paper explores also the concept of moral virtue in Greek, Roman, Christian, Islamic, Vedic, and Buddhist Literature.

by Bro. William Steve Burkle KT, 32°, Scioto Lodge No. 6, Chillicothe, G.L. of F.&A.M. of Ohio.

This ordering was so ingrained in the cultural, political, and theological structure of society that it was accepted as a matter of absolute fact at least until the late 1800'??s or early 1900'??s. This paper will discuss the concept of the Great Chain of Being, will examine its historical basis, and will explain how the esoteric symbolism of the Masonic ladder is related to this concept.

The Tetagrammaton serves as a bridge between these concepts which span time, culture (Greek and Hebrew), and multiple Masonic rites and rituals. This paper discusses the Tetragrammaton, the Tetractys, and the Sephiroth and shows how the three are related.
