The initiation system outlined in the Societas O.T.O. is a high initiation system and is based in many Para Masonic Rites or systems such as:
The thirteen degrees of the Order of Illuminati (The Enlightened Operative Rite of
Ten degrees of the SOTO,
The Ancient and Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraïm,
The Hermetic Order of The
The Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite,
The Templar Rite,
The Egyptian Rite,
Gothic Mysteries, among others.
The initiation system gives importance to fundamental pillars of initiation: as the real desire, the will, the
awakening of human consciousness from sleep, respect the cycles and order, coherence, a traditional means of initiation
(Yoga, Tantra, Cabala, symbolism, alchemy), and initiated the transformation of operational work into the divinity itself, in the alchemical androgynous divine, always looking to this project in its internal evolution external.
In this system an important figure is the God of Light, Baphomet. Only with Baphomet the initiation is
complete. With the other Abrahamic Gods and their slave-shackles initiatory work is "castrated and full initiation is not possible. It is important to add to the above, both the Liber Oz and the Book of the Law.
