Ratings and Meanings of Freemasonry

The traditional world of regular Masonry, the Grand Lodge, New Apprentice,  Fellow Craft and Master Mason works at three levels of Masonry. The rank of master is considered to be the highest rank of Masonry, and the Locals are neither spoken nor spoken above the Master.

In general, it is accepted that Elias Ashmole thinks that a 33-degree system is to operate in the same locals who belong to various sects and communities. In this system, Ashmole pursued the aim of describing and applying the information about the various grades of human thought in a developmental way. But the 33-degree system is suggested by those who studied the history of freemasonry, such as Jean Palou, whom the French Masons thought before Ashmole, and Dante, using his thoughts. Whatever the finder is, the fact is that it has been widely accepted at 33 degrees today, and points to certain views and teachings. However, there is a distinction between the grouping of 33 as proposed by Ashmole and the present grouping. Ashmole has divided the four groups of 33 degrees. The first group contains 1-3 grades. The operative Masonry comes to apprentice-master-master level, the second group will be 15 level, and all the past pennies will be explained in pieces. It's from the original Rose-Croix. The third group is 13 and reflects the traditions of Templar Knights. The fourth group is taken from the Alchemists and indicates the synthesis of all the ratios. In response to this distinction of Ashmole, the current 33 degrees are divided into 7 sections.

According to the Scottish Ritual, which is also accepted by the Masonic Locations in Turkey, Freemasonry is arranged over 33 degrees. It forms the basis of a particular teaching at every level and has its own symbols, sacred words, ritual and commonplace ceremony.

33 degrees in masonry is not always accepted. Former operative freemasons have only accepted the apprenticeship and boarding friendship classes. Mastery is not a degree, it is only management. This management is based on liquidation and driving licenses. Since the establishment of the Great House of London, two degrees have been accepted. In contrast, Ramsay's reformist attitudes and excellent masters have sought to establish a fourth degree. In the meantime, to show that masonry is not only influenced by Christianity, the concern of representing all religious and intellectual tendencies existing in Freemasonry at that time (XVIIth Century) suddenly rose to grades 91. In 1758, II.Frederick (1712-1786) wanted to establish the Supreme Council of the Thirty-Three, and the Scottish rite to achieve a uniform system of grades. Finally, in 1800, for the first time a 33s council was established in Charleston. Freemasons from this council were in France in 1804, in Italy in 1805, in North America in 1813, in Belgium in 1817, in Ireland in 1824, in Scotland in 1829, in Turkey, 33 have formed a council and 33 degrees have become a common degree system. In spite of this, there are some German Rites practicing only four degrees today.

Masonic roads and teachings, called rites for grades above the third degree, are held under different associations and in different places. Joining or not participating in these rituals is a choice left to the Masons with Master's degree, not a mandatory or obligatory obligation. Studies of these ratios include high-philosophical and spiritual studies, as well as investigations to find out more about the secrets and secrets of the teachings of the first three degrees of Freemasonry.

The 33rd-ranked Scottish Riti, which is also followed in our country, is the most preferred philosophical ritual with the highest number of members in the world. It is followed by York Riti, widely adopted in the United States.

There are some ridges of only one degree, as there are those who have carried out intensive work like the 99-degree Memphis-Misraim Riti in various rites that exist on the world.

Any ritte must have a regular degree of Master Locanda working in connection with the Great Loca in order to be able to continue to the fourth degree and upwards, as well as to be unregulated at any time in its relations with this master Lodge and to fulfill its obligations without interruption. A member who is declared irregular in his / her Locality automatically falls to a higher membership. There are only men and unrelated members in this region. [1]

The Human Rights Declaration with the Mason Symbol at the top Traditional World Regular Freemasonry Operates at three levels of Freemasonry, including the Great Local, Chirag, Kalfa and Master. The rank of master is considered to be the highest rank of Freemasonry, and any degree above the rank of Master.

Secrets of Freemasonry

Freemasonry is applied differently around the world. Grades are different. Some are closer to Catholicism, some to Protestantism, and some to Judaism. But all of them were influenced by "cult" sects such as Jewish Kabbalah, Hermeticism, Paganism and Karmatism, Hashishism.

Masonic Groups in Turkey 33-degree Scottish Ritual Practical. 1-3. The grades are the part known as "apprentice", "kalfa", "master". Basic rules and ideals are taught. It is known as "operative freemasonry."

The higher rating is called "Philosophical Freemasonry." That's 4-14. Hiram (master) philosophy is processed. More Jewish beliefs are dominant ... This period is known as the "tekemmül" level.

15-18. ratios are intermediate ratios. More general information is given. This rating is called "chapitre".

18-30. and "upper philosophy" is processed on the grades. In this period, sâlik is tried to be purified from all religious beliefs. This grade is the level of "aropathy".

31-33. it is not the number of times that every father can reach. They are the ruling ranks ... The inhabitants take part in various levels of government. Here, they are now regarded as real (!) "Master". [3]

Time of Freemasonry Stay and Prison Mechanism


A person who is taken "by monotheism" of Masonry can rise to the highest level of masonry (33rd degree and "beyond") by ascending in "Remzi" and "philosophical" ranks.

As we have mentioned, the ascension can only take place in stages in these two forms.

The first of these increases (remzi grades) occurs in group grades, the second group (philosophical grades).

One who receives majestic as "apprentice" is named "Kalfa" and then "Master-Master", which is given the name "Increase of Nafak" by the term of operative-operative masonry.

In order to be able to move to the 4th of the philosophical grades from the remoting grades, the candidate must have been an active member of "Master-Master" and "Blue Lodge" for at least two years (to enter the Tekemmülül-Development Locations).

19th grade from 18th grade; that is, from "Rose-Cross Knight" to "Great Scots", the person who is Mason on the ascension changes the group.

It is essential to spend a certain period of time to be able to pass another degree at a level and to attend the meetings of the Locarna (at least half).

The degree upgrades are carried out with a ceremony ritual / ritual in which the philosophical affinity that concerns the degree is represented and the name "ikaf" is given.

According to the articles 102-109 of the "Great Lodge Regulation of Turkey", Çirrak Birader, who had acquired the masonic information completely in the place of "Apprentice" and who had gone to the Lodge one year after the "Tekris" , "Nafakası is increased", "Kalfa" is removed.

2. Rise to Rise: The "Beatiful" Brother has learned the knowledge of his own level and has participated in at least three-three Kalfa meetings, starting from Apprentice, with ten-10 apprenticeship, including other Locars, If the waiting period is filled, it is raised to "Master-Master".

According to this "Regulation"; It is not possible to ascend "Apprentice" for at least 1 year, "Kalfa" for at least 1 year and 3rd Degree, "Masters-Master" for at least two or two years.

The promotion of a mason's degree may be "with the proposal of the envir and the Master," which means "envar", which is the idea that other Brothers in the Loca will open for the upcoming masonic.

If a positive decision comes, Mason will be "pushed" to the "second degree cell" for a final decision.

There are no apprentices in the black, with the "Master" being the "Master" ascension.

If the verdict is positive, then it is "pushed" to the "middle cell". The "Kalfa" is removed from the Loca while the submissions are being discussed.

According to the "Statute"; The Supreme Council of Supremes - every Master-Master belonging to a Rit recognized by the Council, Mason. Level 4 can be upgraded.

It is believed that it takes seven to seven years to rise to 33rd grade on the 1st.

This figure is not certain, of course; but in this year and so forth the 33rd degree promotion is carried out.

Besides; According to the "Statute", an "apprentice" with the required conditions can be raised by two (or more) degrees by shortening the waiting period by the decision of the Lodge in case of need.

According to Masons, this exception applies to "those who will go abroad or stay there for more than a year", but it is known that after a "tekris" operation, a very effective person has a much higher rating than those waiting periods.

Masonic rules may be as written in the "Statute"; but "conditions" can accrue different results.

Just as Turkish Masons do not know the "Secrets" of 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, they do not teach "mysteries" to "our" (!) freemasons as they can not teach and that they believe that Freemasonry believes that Freemasonry is supposed to be "doing mastermind"!
