Initiation

Naturally the ritual of initiation is the most important, as it is the most elaborate, of any Lodge ceremonial. It is designed to instruct and inspire the initiate; and in an appropriate setting, to secure his or her assumption of the solemn and binding obligation of membership. It is conducted throughout with dignity and decorum. It is wholly devoid of any feature which will embarrass or annoy the candidate, or subject him or her to ridicule or to any discomfort, physical or mental.
