User Agreement



The purpose of MithraNet social network is to discuss the beliefs, practices and history of the various Religion of Light communities, to share news and events that affect the same communities or that affect the friends of Religion of Light adherents, and to encourage one another in a friendly, loving environment. Our social network is open to all people who have a serious interest in our communities and would like to know more about the Religion of Light.

We are very happy to answer all questions people may have, we only ask that you please show respect for our faith. This way we do not have to ban anyone from the site.

Part of this respect is shown by never speaking offensively about our God, the Living Spirit, Mithra, Yisho Ziwa (Jesus the Splendour), Mir Izgadda (the Third Messenger), the Prophet Mani, Buddha Moni, Ajan Jyoti, Narayana, Manikkavasagar and so on.

This site is sponsored and administrated by various adherents of the Religion of Light communities.

By using this site, you understand that you are using a Religion of Light operated network by, for and about the Religion of Light. That having been said, you agree to abide by the rules of this site.

Questions can be offered to gain understanding, however, not in an accusatory or disrespectful tone.

Those participating on MithraNet are not required to believe what adherents of the Religion of Light believe, but users are definitely required to accord us the respect you would offer to any other world religion.

Any derogatory statement or attitudes towards our God, our Third Messenger, our Prophet Mani, the leadership of our various communities, or towards our beliefs in general, may result in removal from the site. We understand that not everyone understands all of the terminology used by our spiritual communities. With that being said, please accord respect toward those with the names or titles “Mir,” “Mar” and anyone with the name “Tarendra.” In some cases, those with these names or titles are spiritual heads of various communities within the Religion of Light.

Since this is strictly a Religion of Light site, the promoting of other religions or other spiritual groups, or unapproved businesses is not permitted on MithraNet; however, there is a group on the site that permits friendly discussion between Religion of Light adherents and persons of other religions. However, with that being said, MithraNet is not a place for debates or arguments.

MithraNet is a religious social network, not a neutral site. Those who are not Religion of Light adherents are guests here. Participants understand that MithraNet is not a Christian site to dissect the Religion of Light from the Christian viewpoint; it is not an occult site, a new age site or a unitarian, interdenominational site. The Religion of Light does not teach that “all paths lead to the one.”

If you are not sure what we believe, you can learn more by asking questions on the site, or by visiting official Religion of Light websites.

You agree, through your use of MithraNet, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person’s privacy, or otherwise in violation of ANY law. Not only is this not humorous, but legal actions can be taken against you. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or you have consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also inappropriate to MithraNet.

Note that it is impossible for us to confirm the validity of all posts on this site. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages and are not responsible for their content. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information presented. The messages express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of MithraNet. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator of this site immediately and to click on the “flag” button. We have the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy goes for member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless MithraNet, and any related websites to MithraNet. We at MithraNet also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any information we have about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any information posted by you.

While the Mother Church encourages the use of this social network, it can not be responsible for every statement made by anyone on this site, regardless of their status as a cleric. Unless the content is a direct quote from an official publication (including texts from the Holy Book), all statements made by clerics or laity, Elect or Hearers, are viewed as personal thoughts shared by the individuals using With the exception of posting a link to an official document or statement authorised by the Mother Church, this site should not be used to publish edicts, communiques, epistles or apostolic letters. There are official sites for that purpose and a social network or forum is not the most appropriate format for such purposes. (Please see the WOC letter of July 12, 2013)

The site owners and/or administrators reserve the right to update this Site Usage Agreement when and if deemed necessary.
