I heard some new Masonic terms, and I thought I'd share them. The more common one first, which many of you may already be familiar with:
GRAND EAST: The place where the Grand Lodge holds its communications and from which place the edicts are issued. (Definition from http://www.masonicworld.com/education/files/masonicdictionary.htm )
But today I read something about "Grand West"
After some research, the meaning seems to be either of these, depending on the jurisdiction:
1) The Deputy Grand Master, or Grand Senior Warden.
2) ALL of the Past and Sitting Masters of any Lodge, or (and perhaps the same people), the Voting Members of a Grand Lodge.
