About Us

Recognizing that traditional initiates of various Orders were no longer gaining certain fundamental studies and experiences, Templar Research Institute was conceived and created by the Ordre Souverain du Temple Inititique® and founded by Bro. Raymond Bernard in 1988. The OSTI is a Knight Templar lineage tracing its roots back to Jacques De Molay.

We are charged to meet the needs of humanity in modern times. Templar Research Institute is for serious spiritual seekers interested in learning the necessary tools that will allow them to perfect their nature through active study and service. It is hoped that by rigorous study and practical application of the principles within Templar Research Institute, its members will be prepared to take the next step of spiritual knighthood within the Order of the Temple.

In the tradition of Knights Templar, we prepare people for the Templar work of fostering individual transformation, greater understanding and inner peace so that they can be agents and spiritual ambassadors for a more peaceful and united world.
