The decision to become a Minister is not one that should be taken lightly. It is a life-altering commitment to a path of self-realization, spiritual enlightenment, and service to humanity. In order to be considered for the training to become a Minister at the Spirit of the Lotus, you must regularly attend Church services for at least one year, and must attend a minimum of four different classes given by the Church (these classes vary in length from 4 to 8 weeks).  

The Minister Program itself last for 6 months. During these 6 months, there are 1-2 classes per week which lasts 1-2 hours. Homework includes not just reading, but gazing, breathing, visualization, and meditation exercises which must be done by the trainees. Multiple short essays are required as is a term paper at the end of the 6 months.  Once ordained, Ministers at the Spirit of the Lotus will be given certain responsibilities including leading Church services and classes. Service to the community, which can take very different forms, is required, and all Ministers must attend the yearly Retreats offered by the Spirit of the Lotus.

The Spirit of the Lotus (SOL) lies safely within the Teachings of the Great Masters. It uses the form of the Lotus to experience the manifestations of the Word.  The SOL allows us to have conscious contact with God the Father which in turn releases the Master Within.  It uses the Rainbow Bridge as its vehicle to take us from the darkness into Light, from the unreal to the Real, from the illusion of death to Immortality, from chaos into unsurpassed beauty. 

The Lotus is the Master Contractor that correlates the consciousness for building the great Bridge to Freedom. The SOL has no dogma; it never limits itself to sex, race, color, religion and/or creed. It is the guiding light that helps illuminate and realize the Word or Shabd; therefore it gives its students and practitioners the impetus toward Self-Realization.  The Church and School of Wisdom continue to evolve and grow. . .teaching, encouraging and inspiring disciples along the Path.
