Ceremony for the degree of Sublime Master of the Stoka, 74

Dit Amerikaanse rituaal dateert uit de tweede helft van de negentiende eeuw.



In Sanscrit verse a Stoka contains eight syllables to the Pada, or quarter verse; thus a Stoka consists of two lines of 16 syllables; of which the 5th, 13th, and 15th are short, the 14th long and the rest optional. Hence a 'Master' must know its construction. Further the occult property of numbers and rhythm; and the power whicb they have over the component seven principles of the Macrocosm and Microcosm. The power of Music in composing the Mind, and in the healing of bodily disease by aiding its efflux is recognized.
