    Hi Everyone,
    I want to know what is the starting point to be a mason ?
    I have some background on Esoteric and occult subjects.
    and the problem is I cant access to any lodge (Sadly lodges are banned in our country ) to join or find the materials to read,
    but in my Book archive I have many books on or about freemasonry ,

    such as :

    Albert Gallatin Mackey - The History of Freemasonry
    Albert Pike - Ancient and accepted Scottish Rite of freemasonry, 1872
    Arthur E. Waite - Aspects of Masonic Symbolism
    Frank C. Higgins - The Beginning of Masonry

    and thousand of other names...

    thanks

    If Masonry is banned in your country it could possibly be dangerous to go in search of it. We do not encourage people to break the law.

    Ok, I highly doubt you'll find much in Iran on Freemasonry. As others have said, be cautious.

    Lets get one thing straighten out.
    Freemasonry does not limit itself to secret circles around the rulers.
    If they would be members of AASR it would be open for anyone and there would be a GL in Iran. Wich there isnt.

    iran has an grand lodge named : Damavand grand lodge ,
    but after the 1979 regime change (anarchy) , lodges closed and many masons left iran, sadly

    yes it is but I don't know much about that,'
    I think I read somewhere , masons that left iran had made that lodge,

    The problem is that freemasonry works in a certain way that cant be tweaked.
    For example you cant have AASR without a GL as the first three degrees have to be given by a lodge and lodges are under a grand lodge.

    actually Im very interested in esoteric sciences, old books, and occult subjects
    my main reason is to access to libraries and read the masonic books,

    lets say , I want to know `what` is life and its purpose

    kinda like Pi Scenario ,
