The Hiereus Lamen Badge is the Admission Badge to the “Rite of the Pentagram and the Five Paths” in the Portal grade. This lamen is based on the Hiereus’ Lamen in the Neophyte Hall—a triangle within a circle.However, the symbolism of this Admission Badge is more complex, as indicated by its description in the Portal ceremony:
“…the Triangle in the Circle is the High symbol of the Holy Trinity, and the first three Sephiroth and of Binah wherein is the Sphere of Saturn, Ruler of the Path Tau. … The Lamen in its more special attributions to the Hiereus, has the following meanings. In the circle are the Four Sephiroth, Tiphareth, Netzach, Hod, and Yesod. The first three mark the angles of the Triangle inscribed within, while the side are the Paths of Nun, Ayin and Peh, respectively. In the centre is marked the Letter Samekh indicating the 25th Path. While the wheel revolves, the hub is still. Seek ever then the centre, look from without to within.”
