AN INITIATORY ORDER
The Women’s Grand Lodge of Bulgaria is a Masonic Order. As such, it aims at the intellectual, moral, spiritual improvement of oneself and of mankind.
Following the maxim of Delphi Temple, “Know thyself”, Freemasonry considers that developing selfawareness, is a necessary way to apprehend mankind and the universe.
Relying on a multisecular tradition, the Masonic path implies initiation, progressive evolution and transmission within a Fraternity. It privileges symbolism and rituals as tools tending to universality and allowing one to rise above usual stereotypes and prejudices.
NON DOGMATIC FREEMASONRY
As belonging to “liberal”, “non-dogmatic” Freemasonry, the Women’s Grand Lodge of Bulgaria considers metaphysical concepts to be a purely personal matter and professes absolute freedom of conscience.
It also considers that the empowerment of the individual through the initiation process and Masonic work requires Freemasons to be concerned with the problems of the world and social issues. There would be no point of becoming a better self if not for being the cornerstone for a better society.
The Women’s Grand Lodge of Bulgaria brings together women of goodwill, regardless of their beliefs, opinions and social status, provided they feel the need to unite and work together for the continuous improvement of themselves and of mankind,
THE CENTER OF UNION
