An organisation whose goal is to aid its pupils' evolution through the theoretical and practical transmission of the Teaching. This Teaching is considered to have its origin in higher consciousness and can enable man to raise himself toward this higher consciousness. The School is where higher principles are taught and put into practice, to be subsequently applied in ordinary life. A School of this kind cannot exist without the presence of an awakened instructor or Master, who is often its founder and organiser. He always refers to his own Master.
