The Ordre Souverain du Temple Initiatique®

The OSTI was founded in 1988 by Raymond Bernard, noted French author and mystic.

The OSTI® is the spiritual heart and governing body of Templar Research Institute. It is here that the inner work of the organization is conducted and it is here that the member pledges him or herself to labor ceaselessly in the name of God and to the benefit of humanity, and to commit their life to working as a Templar.

As a consequence, as is traditional and out of respect for the wishes of such candidates, in applying for membership in Templar Research Institute, each candidate is expected to study and work in the Templar Research Institute curriculum. All members of Templar Research Institute are considered working Templars.

"Nothing that is human shall be a stranger to you."
Raymond Bernard
