Sources or Testimonies
In his book "The Secret Mansions of the Rose-Croix", Fr. Raymond tells us of his encounters with the High Adepts and his visit to their Rosicrucian Mansions, the Houses of the Spiritum Sanctum. He mentioned his visits to the secret mansions in Amsterdam, Vienna, Lisbon, and in Madrid. He also mentioned that there are 144 mansions all around the world and that their location may vary according to the world conditions. He said that apart from promoting and monitoring the development and expansion of the Rosicrucian Tradition all over the globe, the Adepts select a few high advanced students to be part of their secretive organization to help them with the Great Work of supporting humanity towards its spiritual unfolding.
Fr. Bernard's work includes plenty of detailed description of the visited locations, his initiations and rituals performed in the houses of the Spiritum Sanctum but their exact address and other details must remain hidden from the public.
I would like to open a discussion regarding the concept of an Adept and its required preparation in an esoteric school settings like the Rosicrucian orders, not only AMORC but other Rosicrucian schools or orders as well.
