Пишут, что Лаудердейл на основе ритуала Дхармы.
The Lauderdale Ritual
This has evolved from the Dharma Ritual, dating from about 1904. The ritual is unique to Le Droit Humain. It has elaborate ceremonial, uses incense, and incorporates a candle lighting ceremony. It stresses the mystical side of Masonry, dear to Annie Besant and includes her specially written Mystic Charges.
The Verulam Ritual
This is another working unique to our Order, dating back to about 1925. It is a compromise between the very elaborate Lauderdale and the plainer ceremonial of the English and Scottish workings, again with its own traditions, such as the freeing ceremony. It is thought to have been written by Bishop Wedgwood, who was a leading member of the British Federation.
The Scottish Ritual
This was introduced by Annie Besant to cater for those joining from all-male obediences. The Scottish Standard Ritual is one of the oldest in existence and was that originally used and still used today by the Grand Lodge of Scotland. It is thought to have been worked at the initiation of Robert Burns by Lodge Canongate Kilwinning No. 2 where he was installed as Poet Laureate of the lodge on 1st March 1787 and remained as such until 1796. The working is ceremonially sparse, but with unique characteristics of its own, for example the method of ballot. The Scottish Lodge No. 884 was formed in 1927 at the direct request of Annie Besant who was its founding master.
The Irish Ritual
This working is very different from the other workings available in the British Federation, being "in the round". It was introduced in 1950 by a brother brought up in the Irish military lodge tradition but little more is known as the records are lost. It has spread, far and wide, through the travels of the Irish military lodges. Introduced with enthusiasm into the British Federation in the early 1950s, the intermingling of the practical and other-worldliness of Celtic mythology is preserved in the unique quality of the Irish Ritual.
The Georges Martin Ritual
This working is crammed full with symbolism. Its origins are unknown but it has much in common with the earliest Scottish workings. There is no incense used but it is easy to see why Annie Besant thought so much of it that she introduced elements from it into the Lauderdale working. The Magic Flute, Mozart's famous Masonic opera, gives a flavour of the approach of this working which has considerable appeal, whilst also offering much to those of humanitarian principles. This working is commonly used throughout most of our Order, but also very similar versions are in use by other Grand Lodges.
И вот здесь еще:
This list can be made a bit shorter, when we know that the “Sydney workings” are the same as the “Annie Besant Concord” which became the “Dharma Workings” which after 1925 became “Lauderdale” on its turn and because these are the Rituals written by Annie Besant and Charles Leadbeater “Besant/Leadbeater” is more of a popularised name. What in the Netherlands is called “English” also seems to be a variation of that Ritual (the other two Rituals in this country are called “Dutch” (based on the 1928 Ritual of the (regular) Grand Orient of the Netherlands) and “French” (an atheistic Ritual, presumably based on the origianal Ritual of Georges Martin)).
Portugal also has a Ritual called “English”, but British members of Le Droit Humain said that this Ritual is nothing like their own. The British website of Le Droit Humain mentions incense used in their “Lauderdale” Ritual which is also used in the Dutch “English” Ritual.
In the United Kingdom Le Droit Humain works with no less than six different Rituals (Lauderdale, Verulam, Scottish, Irish, Georges Martin, Emulation). They are nicely summed up and explained on their website.
