Mountain of Initiation
The first of three symbolic mountains that represent stages of spiritual development. The first mountain is a series of initiations achieved by the Monad, in which the soul is created and prepared for the remainder of the work.
The first mountain begins with theof Major Mysteries (serpents of fire), in which the solar bodies are created.
At the fifth, one chooses between the straight or spiral path. Only those who choose the straight path, the path of the , incarnate the and continue on the three mountains. Their next step is the Venustic (serpents of light), which Christifies the solar bodies.
