Vow of the Neophyte



I, _____________________ in the presence of the Lord of the Universe and in the presence of my Higher Self, the Divine Guardians of this Order, and this assembly in this Hall of the Neophyte of the Order of the Golden Dawn; Collegium Spiritu Sancti, do of my own free will, most solemnly promise to keep secret the membership of this Order, its rituals, and any and all proceedings that take place at its meetings from every person in the world who has not been initiated into it.

I will exercise the highest discretion in whom I confide about my participation in this Order.   Nor will I discuss Order proceedings with any member who has not the current password, or who has resigned, been expelled, or in general has fallen away from Order attendance and participation.
I undertake to maintain a kindly and benevolent relationship with all Fratres and Sorores of this Order. I will treat all members as if they were a brother or sister, as if we shared the same mother, the same father.

I will neither copy nor allow to be copied the grade material of this Order, correspondences between Order members, and any other documents belonging to our Order except for personal use, until I obtain permission from the Collegium of Adepti.

I solemnly promise not to allow myself to be placed, nor place myself in, a state of extreme passivity through the abuse of drugs, alcohol or any other method of deep induction. I will maintain control of my mind at all times, lest others influence me or manipulate me into purposes of serving their own greed or lust.

I solemnly promise to preserve and defend this Order with courage and determination in the labor and study of the Divine Science and I shall always uphold the integrity of this Order through the virtues of the infinite pillars upon which this Order is built - Love, Truth, Knowledge. I will not debase my mystical knowledge in the labor of evil magic at any time, tried or under temptation.

I promise to uphold the decisions of the Collegium of Adepti as final in the governance of this Order. Neither will I encourage schism nor encourage or suggest other members abstain from Order participation or membership. I accept that if I fail to maintain regimented focus, responsible study, and spiritual advancement through the teachings of the Order, my membership with this Order will be discontinued but my responsibility to uphold this Oath will not.

Finally, I foremost pledge myself to Divine Light, to the magical way of life, to the principles of brotherly love and to the future development of the spiritual through the greater understanding of the Mysteries and the Collegium Spiritu Sancti.

I pledge this secret.
I pledge a sacred oath with my mighty and secret soul.
I do so swear,
