What is Freemasonry?

The essence of Masonry cannot readily be expressed in words.
     Know Thyself!

       Rule Thyself!

    Ennoble Thyself!

Freemasonry cannot be learnt from books; it has to be experienced.

One of the more important aspect are the regular meetings with their frank and open exchanges of ideas.

Freemasonry supplies the tools to attempt to achieve this goal.

  • should be understood as a framework, not a corset. Life in the lodges is defined by the members. Authority is delegated from bottom to top, accordingly there is responsibility from top to bottom. Responsibility is only due to people, not offices.
