Recognized by many as

The Purple People

Welcome to

Nahziryah Monastic Community / Retreat for Meditation and Wholistic Living

Monastic Ecovillage / The Community Of The Purple Lodge

The Nazir Order Of The Purple Veil / In The Degree Of The Ascension



You may have seen long purple robed monks and nuns walking softly and respectfully across Mother Earth, speaking very little, always carrying a greeting of Peace…

You may have seen purple veiled renunciates traveling through city and countryside in purple vans and step vans with bumper stickers carrying the message, “May Peace Prevail On Earth – The Purple People”…

Perhaps you have experienced entering into establishments where the walls inside and out were graced with the color purple, the air filled with delicate fragrances, shelves filled with books, recordings and more – of a metaphysical/esoteric nature, and all kept diligently clean and in order by purple veiled attendants (whom you may have also witnessed prostrating at the sight of their Spiritual Master)…

Or maybe you have walked up to purple draped outdoor tables surrounded by an aromatic vibrance – on which were displayed art crafts made at the Monastery, along with an interesting array of incense, oils and more…

And even now, while traveling through the midst of this virtual reality called cyberspace –
arriving here at The Purple People Place

…and wondering who are The Purple People and why in the world

(and in truth beyond)


Please be Aware

There are and have been those who profess, take on the title, and perhaps a variation of appearance… but have not nor do not adhere to the strict disciplines brought forth by living the Life under the watchful eye of the Master — the disciplines, the Life, the feeling, the Knowing, the actions, the aura which prompted the one professing to bear the name (and in name only) yet not taking the initiative to receive Initiation. Therefore, when coming in contact with a “purple people” (or other member or association), it is advised that proper channels be followed to insure that one has in Truth come in contact with a member of Nahziryah Monastic Community/The Nazir Order of the Purple Veil, with “Purple People”.(Pay close attention to their wrists…)

We Offer you a glimpse

Reverend Baba Nazirmoreh K. B. Kedem (All Blessings and Respect Due) is the Founder, Spiritual Head and Director of Nahziryah Monastic Community and the Nazir Order of the Purple Veil. Since beginningless time, the Reverend has brought forth Universal Truth Principles (which in this current time dispensation are also called Ancient Wisdom Teachings). As Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) teaches one and all, “Live the Life, and you will know the Doctrine, the Love”. The purple robed mendicants are direct students of Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.), full time live-in members (for the most part) of Nahziryah Monastic Community under the direct direction of Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.), and have been initiated into the Nazir Order of the Purple Veil by Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.). (Please note: There are different levels and degrees of membership and participation.) And the items offered at various locations and times as sited above – are integral services of Nazir Art Crafts – established by the Reverend to support, maintain and sustain the Community’s efforts to serve and to be of service.

True to life long vows (and a sign of this vow) – we first, foremost and always proclaim Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) as our Spiritual Master.

Why do we wear the color purple?

The color purple is a color of the highest spiritual vibratory rate. This is the color of the age of enlightenment, the age of Universal Consciousness, the age which the world is now embarking on. With far reaching vision, Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) envelops the Community in this purple vibration – an aura which is conducive to, assists in, and embraces the Direction, the Goal.

Nahziryah Monastic Community’s Nazir Order of the Purple Veil (NOPV), is the Community’s initiated inner Order and Path of strict discipline. An initiate of the Order is one who is consecrated. The Nazir Order makes consciousness expansion and further spiritual development the chief object of life. The Purple Veil and garments of the initiates of the Order are worn to enshroud those of the Order in the spiritual, peaceful and positive energies emanating from the color purple; purple being a color of the highest spiritual vibratory rate. It may cause a feeling of consternation in those who have a fear of the unknown, however, the overall effect is that of helping to usher in more spiritual and harmonious states of consciousness throughout all existence.

The Reverend teaches respect for all Life, that there are many paths, which lead to the same Goal… that we are all fellow travelers — different degrees, different levels, different grades; some traveling swiftly, others more slowly, still others taking detours along the way. No one path is the only path, or the only right path. One of the fundamental Truth Principles brought forth by Reverend Nazirmoreh (A.B.R.D.) is that we are One — beyond the body, beyond the mind, beyond the mundane/physical/mental/programmed/conditioned illusion of separation. That we are not the body, we are not the mind, we are not sex, race, nationality and so on. That we are everliving, everlasting Spirits taking on these appearances to gain through that particular experience, to learn and to grow beyond the experience… there are always heights ahead — different degrees, different levels, different grades. We are all fellow travelers.
