Why become a Scottish Freemason?
There are many personal benefits to becoming a Scottish Freemmason. The rewards are different for each person. However all Scottish Freemasons share one common goal: to become a better man.
When you become a Mason, you become part of an ancient tradition that spans centuries. From the original craftsmen that produced some of the most majestic architectural wonders of the World to modern day Freemasons, who participate in numerous charitable activities, you'll feel connected to a vital, growing and spiritually uplifting organisation of moral men.
You will share the values of the great men: Men who believed in the brotherhood of man. Freemasonry is built upon the three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Brotherly love is the practice of the golden rule. Relief embodies charity for all mankind. Truth is honesty, fair play and adherence to cardinal virtues. Above all, men of all faiths are welcome, as long as they believe in a Supreme Being.
Scottish Freemasons seek to improve themselves and to help others, not because they think they should, but because they want to. Because of this crucial distinction, Freemasons give freely of themselves and ask nothing in return. When you're a Freemason, the satisfaction derived from selfless service is immeasurable, for it is in helping others that one most helps himself.
Freemasons come from all walks of life: accountants, teachers, office workers, labourers, you name it. They represent all creeds and cultures, and all are welcome. You are bound to develop lasting friendships, meet new business associates, and broaden your circle of friends. No matter where your travels take you, it's great to know there are brothers you can depend on and trust.
