Culdians avoid any purposeless, unproductive rituals, but at the same time they recognize that various rites can serve positive and beneficial ends by holding people together in one common bond of a uniform discipline. Many people find pageantry and ceremony provides the right atmosphere for inducing attunement and also for filling some need in their nature. All Culdian rituals are directed toward the inducement of specific frames of mind conducive to the reception or perception of certain desirable effects.
