 Scientology A true Religion


THE RITUAL OR MYSTICAL ASPECT

Part of the practices which are described in this section have already been described in the former chapter (training and auditing), therefore I will concentrate more on what can be understood as ceremonies and rites.

These are collected in the Book of Ceremonies of the Church of Scientology. Despite the fact that the founder himself places Scientology in the tradition of the oriental religions, inheritors of Buddhism and the Vedas, it nevertheless has ceremonies which to a large degree remind one of the western religions. This is the case with the Sunday Services and the Matrimonial Ceremonies.
