through the recognition of his mission that Irineu Serra started to
be called by these followers, and referred in many of their hymns,
as Mestre (master). These followers and their hinarios are the doctrine’s
faithful representation, in a proof of the loyalty, clearness and
of the love dedicated to him and by him being denominated - together
with his hinário "O CRUZEIRO" - as the official hinários:
the doctrinaire base of the Santo Daime doctrine.
we must address that Irineu Serra, since his first steps on earth,
was accompanied so much in the physical matter as in the realm of
the divinity, giving testimony to the importance of the mission
that by him would be planted in Brazil's heart, the Amazon forest.
Assunção Serra, his mother, gave us this light in
the form of a boy, educated in devote cradle, in the city of São
Vicente do Férrer. There he grew up, worked and relied, in
dreams, in the teachings of his spiritual teacher, Clara, who would
later be recognized as the Virgin of the Conception. It was also
in his native city that Mestre Irineu had his uncle’s advices,
this of fundamental importance on his move, still young, to Acre,
where he met with his cousins and fellow citizens Antônio
and André Costa, the responsible people for introducing to
him the sacramental drink ayahuasca.
was almost twenty years later that the first followers started to
arrive, these ones present in the opening of the spiritual works
of the mission that later would be called Santo Daime. Companions
who gave us a testimony of faith, love and loyalty, a legacy delivered
to us through the hymns, personal accounts and history: together
with our Mestre, the fundamental pillars of the doctrine.
"companions" were many, and we are going to, as far as possible, mention
the ones that are known to us, being important to address that contributions
will be very welcomed, in text, photo or video, regarding all the
ones that somehow contributed to form this so beautiful garden.
