Exoteric doctrines are spiritual doctrines available to the masses. These include all forms of organized religion, and some expressions of spirituality.
Individuals studying exoteric doctrine are often taught, either overtly or covertly, that they are in need of fundamental moral or evolutionary repair or revision. In exoteric systems, successful repair leads to "salvation" or graduation while unsuccessful repair leads to failure and anything from permanent rejection and complete obliteration to the eternal repetition of karmic "lessons."
