Glossary of Terms


Literally, the Principles. The Temple is governed not by rules, laws, dogmas, teachings or constitutions - rather it manifests solely by the Seven Guiding Principles. These Seven Guiding Principles were revealed by the Great Liberating Mother Herself and form the cornerstone of all cosmological teachings. Each Principle is ruled by one of the Fortuitous Angels, who overseas its implementation. There are Seven Angels of Fortune and Seven Spokes of the Wheel of Fortuna, just as there are Seven Points on Her Star. In Her guise of Helena the Torch-bearer, the Great Liberating Mother is the Mother of the Seven Fortuitous Angels. Pronounced Prin-kip-ee-ah.
