ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS
SCIENTOLOGY AND DIANETICS TRAINING AUDITING
What is the difference between the two Scientology paths of auditing and training?
The reference that best explains the difference between these two routes is the Classification, Gradation and Awareness Chart (also known as the Grade Chart).
On the right side of the chart there are various steps of grades a person moves through as he participates in auditing. Each grade listed has a column for Ability Gained that describes the increasing levels of spiritual awareness and ability rehabilitated at each stage. This is done on a gradient (a gradual approach to something, taken step by step), so those states of being which are seemingly too high above one can be achieved with relative ease.
The left-hand side of the chart describes the gradient steps of training on which one gains the knowledge and abilities necessary to minister each level to others. Each training service listed includes a description of the specific subject matter for that level. In training, one is learning about the various facets of life with a view to helping others.
These two different paths parallel each other. Optimally, a person follows both paths.
The chart is a guide for the individual from the point he first enters Scientology, and shows him the basic sequence in which to proceed with his auditing and training services.
