In the later years, in Poona, many sexual experiments were tried. Bhagwan told one woman how to overcome her phobia of rats: The mangoes were very popular with everyone Milne, As to the characteristics which Bhagwan was looking for in his mediums, he soon explained: Rajneesh has said at some time that underwear interferes with the passage of energy Gordon, He would manipulate my genitals, masturbate me, but it was also as if he was rewiring my circuits in Gordon, The other main way of making money in those days was to mount a drug run Milne, The most ambitious known smuggling attempt was made in when fifty kilograms of marijuana were packed into the frame and furnishings of a hippie-style bus traveling from [Poona] to Europe.
About twenty disciples had invested in the deal and another twenty had worked on the bus. The contraband, however, was discovered in Yugoslavia, and three sannyasins were put in jail for a year Mangalwadi, One sannyasi murdered another in one of the hut villages about a mile from the ashram, and another was found dead with multiple stab wounds beneath the nearby Mulla-Matha bridge Milne, Pausing at the top of the departure stairs as he exited the plane, the sage expansively proclaimed: I am the Messiah America has been waiting for in Milne, And this was when the real problems began.
To complete the Club Med appeal, discos, bar lounges and gaming tables were made available in late Palmer and Sharma, Directing their attention as well to concerns outside of the ashram, followers in the same year spiked salad bars at ten restaurants in [nearby The Dalles, Oregon] with salmonella and sickened about people Flaccus, William James thought he had recorded the ultimate mystery under the influence of nitrous oxide.
On returning to his normal state, he eagerly consulted the paper on which he had scrawled the great message DeRopp, Hogamous, Higamous, Man is polygamous. Higamous, Hogamous, Woman is monogamous. And such injury will be not only of each other, but also will be reflected upon others near to them. One should therefore most assiduously eliminate all conflicts.
One can visualize a dark legion which makes an onslaught upon each break in the aura. It is dreadful to feed such vermin with the inner layers of radiations. The protective net alone blocks the attack of the dark forces. Each breach in the aura also threatens one with obsession.
Let us therefore be even more cautious. Thus by the width and emanations of the aura it is possible to determine the high standing or quality of the spirit. LHR I, p Austerity of Labor — The very austerity of labor can acquire a beautiful meaning by the elimination of all coarsening effects and the introduction of the concept of cooperation. Only limited people condemn. Not out of condemnation is perfection born. BR, 41 Authenticity — Authenticity creates power, authenticity does not fear.
Following authenticity one may be assured as to timeliness of decision and amplitude of means. COM, Avakara — Sk. You know and understand the lofty concept "Avatar", but in order to attain it, it is needful to become "Avakara"—the fierily inspired. COM, Avalokiteshvara — Sk. In the exoteric interpretation, he is Padmapani the lotus bearer and the lotus born in Tibet, the first divine ancestor of the Tibetans, the complete incarnation or Avatar of Avalokiteswara; but in esoteric philosophy Avaloki, the "on-looker", is the Higher Self, while Padmapani is the Higher Ego or Manas.
The mystic formula "Om mani padme hum" is specially used to invoke their joint help. While popular fancy claims for Avalokiteswara many incarnations on earth, and sees in him, not very wrongly, the spiritual guide of every believer, the esoteric interpretation sees in him the LOGOS, both celestial and human.
The descent of a god or some exalted Being, who has progressed beyond the necessity of Rebirths, into the body of a simple mortal. Ignorance opposed to Vidya , Knowledge.
TG Militant darkness is familiar to all peoples under different designations. In the last analysis, darkness remains the most frightful aspect of Avidya.
But it is very dangerous when it begins to act. One must courageously meet its attacks in action sustained up to the point of its destruction. It has been said—darkness is as a carpet to the Fiery World. But in order to pass more quickly over the dark terrain, one should become kindled in heart.
Thus the Fiery World will be the goal of victory over darkness. If darkness is perilous, then the goal must be great. A state; not necessarily after death only or between two births, for it can take place on earth as well.
The last of the eight hells, we are told, "where the culprits die and are reborn without interruption —yet not without hope of final redemption".
This is because Avitchi is another name for Myalba our earth and also a state to which some soulless men are condemned on this physical plane. TG Ayur Veda — Sk. The Veda of Life. The Teaching of Life. TG Balsam — An aromatic, resinous substance flowing from certain trees and very valuable for its medicinal properties. It is irreplaceable in the treatment of old, malignant wounds. Bahkti Yoga — see Bhakti Yoga Battle — We call to calmness and at the same time constantly speak of battle.
One should understand this struggle as an accumulation of strength through work. It is impossible to intensify energy without labor, and each labor is a battle with chaos. I affirm the manifested forces do not go out to fight; they stand on the defensive against chaos. Thus it is not easy for many to understand that the battle is continuous, only its rhythm changes.
Timid ones tremble at a single mention of the battle and ask, When will it end? But they become completely crestfallen when told that the battle will come to an end only with the termination of chaos.
BR, Baume Bengue — Fr. A medicinal baume, which contains a large amount of menthol, useful in the treatment of painful nerve centers.
One who carries within himself all the highest fires and through striving and achievement becomes thus a great and forceful leader. Beauty — Throughout the history of humanity one may find convincing proofs of beauty having been a shield. This is the true realm of the heart. This desired purification of life gives that solemnity which is like an inextinguishable Light. He promoted the first psycho-physiological laboratory, founded in , the St.
Like a resonator it gathers the symphony of the world, and it can transform the deepest silence into a thundering chord. It is absolute Be-ness , not Being , the one secondless, undivided, and indivisible All—the root of all Nature visible and invisible, objective and subjective, to be sensed by the highest spiritual intuition, but never to be fully comprehended.
Be-ness in its boundlessness may be affirmed as Infinity. The entire essence of Be-ness is contained in this law of communion with the Fire of Space and in the principle interchange of energies.
Root of ideation is the profound basis of Be-ness. Since Be-ness is Fiery Expanse, our life is filled with cosmic energy. INF I, 56 To know the significance of Be-ness means to be convinced of the goal-fitness of existence. INF II, An opinion exists that prayer is something apart from daily life, whereas it is the foundation of life.
Without a link with the Higher World humanity would be unthinkable, it would be worse than the beasts! Thus, one may regard this bond with the Higher World as the foundation of Be-ness.
It matters not in what language the invocation is uttered. Thought has no tongue, yet it is all-pervading. AUM, 42 History shows how the nests of true thoughts have been put together, therefore the science of thought is the science of Be-ness. It is inadmissible to complicate the study of thought with any restrictions. Besides, this science must be forever alive, for thought continually vibrates and lives in space. Thus, an aspiring study of thought leads to an understanding of so-called phenomena, which are nothing but unrealized psychic energy in its various manifestations.
Exoterically, kindness and charity. The heart that has consecrated itself to righteousness radiates benevolence continuously, independently of the volitional sendings. The heart that has pledged itself to evil will thrust out arrows consciously, unconsciously, and continuously.
The heart of goodness sows about itself health, smiles, and spiritual bliss. The heart of evil destroys warmth and, like a vampire, sucks out the vital strength. Thus, the activity of hearts, good and evil, is unceasing. Arrows may be aimed even at a rogue. LMG I, In human hands benevolence is like the evening lamp. Darkness falls, but the lamp is ready and an experienced hand is there to light it. But again I say—praise each good deed, it is a manifestation of generosity. Let each spark of good be blown into a flame.
Though good be accidental to a great extent, it still is good. It would be too much to demand always a conscious good action; let the darkness be dispersed, even by dim lights. Even with one spark of light, absolute darkness will no longer be such. Behind the thought, word, or deed, Light is already standing. Thus, he who knows how to find a spark of Light is already an illumined co-worker. In he introduced steam sterilization and in began to use aseptic methods.
One of his specialties was cranial surgery. The path of selfless love. It begins to enter in the beginning of the fourth month when the first nerve and brain channels are being formed.
The formation of the vetebral column brings in the next degree of possession of the body. Wonderful is the moment of birth when the consciousness of the spirit flashes up brightly and then binds with matter.
There are even cases when words are pronounced at birth. With justice they ask, "What distinguishes the significance of thought in the New Age? If thought is affirmed so persistently does it mean that a special designation is given to it in the regeneration of life? If during the Black Age thought was centered around man and magnetism was spread across small distances, in the New Age thought is Space! Therefore, one must not think personally but spatially.
Although the effects of the Black Age will still tag along, the bright sowings already begin to produce sprouts under the beneficial rays of new combinations of the luminaries; and the sowers of darkness will begin to suffer defeat. One should observe not only Ours but also the Black Brotherhood. It is erroneous to minimize the strength of the dark forces.
Very often their victory is due to such neglect. People very often say, "They are not worth thinking about. If people justifiably protect themselves against thieves and murderers, so much the more should they guard against the assassins of the spirit. One should appraise their strength in order to better withstand them. But those who think that visions and dreams are caused by indigestion, can easily sleep through the most valuable signs of reality. Only those who know the strength of their adversaries can hope for victory.
FW II, 13 Lucifer is now at the head of the Black Brotherhood, which is very powerful, for it has co-workers among the masses over the entire span of the planet. Indeed, the dark forces always act through masses; in single combat they are not strong.
Likewise, they are distinquished by greater unity than the co-workers of the Forces of Light, for the realization of danger is at times the best unifier. Each receptivity is already an acceptance of Fire.
Tension of energy is the transformation of an undifferentiated element into active vibrations. True receptivity is always positive, because the fiery energy then acts directly. Each unlawful deviation and destruction arouses the so-called black fire.
It has a peculiar analogy to venous blood. Phlebotomy had its reason. The black fire could be discharged by it. Fortunately the luminous Fire does not call for such coarse measures.
The more naturally the Fire is kindled, the more beneficial it is. Hence the conclusion that the fire of love is the most perfect. You wish to protect the Hierarch, and you do so not from fear, not for gain, but from love.
The substitution of fear or covetousness for love results in black fire. The result is the same in the case of any other unworthy substitutions. Every fire is magnetic; therefore one should so cautiously avoid the magnetism of the black fire. It does not transmute the particles of dense emanations, but acts just reversely, thus encumbering space.
This can be especially harmful in the case of blood relationships when the dense unconsumed particles are so easily attracted and can overstrain already weakened organs. Thus, it is impractical to kindle the black fire. But do not try to convince of the Fiery World a heart that is ignorant of Fire. Such coercion will only lead to the black fire. If we could count the number of servants of darkness created by various coercions, we would be terrified by the enormous total.
FW I, The enemy does not lose time and uses the black fire which, of course, is so easily ignited and fanned whenever the magnet of irritability is evident. The black fire is nothing else but irritability, so beloved by the dark ones. LHR I, The mechanical methods so broadly recommended for the development of psychic energy cannot give the higher quality of this energy; they only develop the black fire, which leads to disastrous results.
Blasphemy results in the rending of the protective net and eventual sickness. Our Communions are not merely for information, but are to be accepted with the heart. Soon you will finish the first part of the writings about the Fiery World. They should not be given only to the curious, for this may give birth to blasphemy.
The meaning of blasphemy must be understood and full attention paid to it. Blasphemy not only repels Light; it inherently carries an actual infection. The blasphemer is not quite the same after his utterances, for he has rent a part of his protective net. One may then expect various sicknesses, for the protective net is not only a spiritual protection but also a physical one. Therefore blasphemous utterances should be forbidden, even in childhood.
It is deplorable that people have lost the sense of responsibility to the extent of forgetting the significance of words. September 8, , founded The Theosophical Society, together with Col.

She died in the midst of arduous labors, May, 8, SD — jacket cover Bliss — The state of the highest tension of energies. It is analogous with what is called Nirvana, and with "Divine Nearness". The Heart might be termed the "Organ of Bliss" since it acts as a Magnet and draws its essence into itself.
Bliss, Nirvana, Divine Nearness and all analogous terms for the higher state are usually understood in an earthly sense. Thus, Bliss is always understood as an ecstatic oblivion and the rapture of some kind of indolent rest; but oblivion may be understood only as the erasure of all earthly means and examples.
Truly, why such limited earthly ways, when one can already act through the higher energies? Is it possible to identify Divine Nearness with indolence and immersion in oblivion?
Such a correlation is contrary to the very meaning of approach to the Highest Principle. This conjoining with the Highest, this transformation through the higher energies, primarily impels one to an increased tension of all forces.
Even in extreme tension a man must not lose hold of himself. But amidst the contacts with fiery radiances, the seed of the spirit will be kindled the more, and its striving toward thought-creativeness, unrestrainable. One may wonder why people try to limit and disparage the significance of the Fiery World. They wish to clothe it in earthly limitations and also stipulate that the inhabitants of other worlds must exist in earthly bodies and dwell in earthly conditions.
Only an undeveloped imagination can limit the Universe to such a degree. Therefore I so greatly emphasize the development of imagination as the basis of striving toward the Higher Worlds. FW I, Forgotten and eliminated from daily life is the moral perfectment and refining of our senses, so essential for the perception of Bliss, which is sent to us from Above.
If humanity would only refrain from devouring dead bodies, then evolution could be accelerated. Meat lovers have tried to remove the blood, but they have not been able to obtain the desired results.
Meat, even with the blood removed cannot be fully freed from the emanations of this powerful substance. Try to carry out a psychic energy experiment near a slaughterhouse and you will receive signs of acute madness, not to mention the entities which attach themselves to the exposed blood.
Not without foundation has blood been called sacred. BR, 21 Bodi, Sambodhi — Sk. Receptive intelligence in contradistinction to Buddhi, which is the potentiality of Intelligence.
TG Bodhisattva — Sk. Bodhi—enlightenment or awakening, and Sattva—the essence. Bodhisattvas were the disciples of Buddhas, who voluntarily renounced their personal liberation and, following the example of their Teacher, entered upon a long, weary, thorny path of help to humanity. Such Boddhisattvas appear on earth in the midst of the most varying conditions of life. They possess the qualities of the maximum development of energy, courage, patience, constancy of striving and fearlessness. There are three joys of Bodhisattvas: Patience, always, in all, and everywhere.
The Sons of Budda, the Sons of Conquerors, Bodhisattvas in their active compassion are the Mothers to the all-existing. From among their number came the founders of the great kingdoms, great religions and philosophies, many alchemists and several saints. Physically indistinguishable in any way from the rest of humanity, they nevertheless differ completely in their psychology, constantly being the heralds of the principle of the common welfare What qualities must a Bodhisattva possess?
In the Teaching of Gotama Buddha and in the Teaching of Bodhisattva Maitreya, given by Him to Asanga, according to tradition in the fourth century, the maximum development of energy, courage, patience, constancy of striving and fearlessness were first of all underlined.
Energy is the basis of everything, as it alone contains all possibilities. Buddhas are eternally in action; immobility is unknown to Them. Like the eternal motion in space, the actions of the Sons of Conquerors manifest in the worlds. He was born about at Old Seidenburg, some two miles from Gorliz Silesia , and died in , at nearly fifty years of age. In his boyhood he was a common shepherd, and, after learning to read and write in a village school, became an apprentice to a poor shoemaker at Gorlitz.
He was a natural clairvoyant of most wonderful powers. With no education or acquaintance with science, he wrote works which are now proved to be full of scientific truths; but then, as he says himself, what he wrote upon, he "saw it as in a great Deep in the "eternal". He had "a thorough view of the universe, as in a chaos", which yet "opened" itself in him, from time to time, as in a young plant".
He was a thorough-born Mystic, and evidently of a constitution which is most rare; one of those fine natures whose material envelope impedes in no way the direct, even if only occasional, inter-communion between the intellectual and the spiritual Ego.
Anyone could approach them, but only a few were able to discern the superearthly radiance behind the earthly face. Only upon the higher law can the page of Sublime Be-ness be affirmed. Valiantly must the spirit strive to the realization of all the subtle principles in order to attain higher knowledge. The Book of Life contains every aspiring action.
The Book of Life contains the manifestation of all vital fires. The heart carries in itself all imprints of the Book of Life. BR, 89 Brahma — Sk. The student must distinguish between Brahma the neuter, and Brahma, the male creator of the Indian Pantheon. The former, Brahma or Brahman, is the impersonal, supreme and uncognizable Principle in the Universe from the essence of which all emanates, and into which all returns, which is incorporeal, immaterial, unborn, eternal, beginningless and endless.
It is all-pervading, animating the highest god as well as the smallest mineral atom. Brahma, on the other hand, the male and the alleged Creator, exists periodically in his manifestation only, and then again goes into pralaya , i. A very important center located physically by a position in the crown of the head. It is connected with the heart by a spinal nerve known by the Sanskrit name of Sushumna which is another name also for the solar ray.
This center has an important function as the link between our psychic energy and the fires of space and is sort of the funnel through which the Fires of Space gain access to the Fires of all the Centers. Striving toward the heights is the best task for the Center of Brahma-Randhra. Everything heard and seen throughout the Brahma-Randhra deserves especially sensitive attention. A high form of knowledge and discrimination enabling one to discern the real nature of things and to penetrate into the mysteries of the Cosmos.
The knowledge, the esoteric science, about the two Brahmas and their true nature. A word does not contain it. Script cannot express it. Because its flame is within that thought which is not expressed in the physical shell.
Only the mirror of the eye emits the sparks of highest thought. Such eyes discern the sparks of the cosmic rays which crude sight will term simply the light of the sun. In order to split the cosmic ray into the sparks of Fohat with the naked eye, the fire of Brahmavidya is needed. The human word is futile in expressing the nature of Brahmavidya.
One may partially penetrate it with the spiritual sight by peering into the shattering rays with closed eyes. But the growth of the fire of Brahmavidya will permit the perception openly of those component parts of the rays which are imperceptible to the mechanical apparatus.
This possibility is already akin to the domain of communion with far-off worlds. It flashes up as unexpectedly as each illumination of consciousness. It does not respond to enforced development, but it comes at the moment of the development of the sensitiveness of the organism.
The Teacher cannot force this possibility, but He rejoices when this sight is carried from darkness to light. The same process occurs with the sounds of the far-off worlds. At first they appear undeniably in the depths of the consciousness and then unexpectedly they fly into the open, exultant ear. Those who do not understand enlightenment will not understand whereof I speak. The force impelling life is comprised in each atom as inherent to each element, in which the predestined impulse in turn creates a direction.
The impelling force magnetizes by its attraction that sphere which surrounds it. As a continuity of action, there will be a generation of other seeds in the spheres. These spheres fill the space, and humanity has its own affirmed combination of spheres. The spirit itself determines its sphere and upon entering it, acts as a magnetic force. The cosmic spheres and the human spheres are subject to the law of Cosmic Breath.
Bromine — Among the minor narcotics beware especially of Bromine. It is an extinquisher of the fires Each one helps in accordance with the measure of his forces; each one does not condemn in his heart; each one affirms knowledge according to his experience; each one lets no time escape, for it is irrecoverable; each one is ready to lend his strength to a Brother; each one displays his best quality; each one rejoices at the success of a Brother.
This definition has a dual significance. Actually, the Brotherhood is primarily concerned with curative principles and establishes them among its fellow members. Each brotherhood, as a true unit, will be in itself a carrier of health.
In it there can be no restrictions of age, race, or of occasional moods. Indeed, above all else there is the primary energy. If it is manifest, and if contacts through it can be harmonized, then there will be affirmed a lasting bond. Co-workers may differ in the degree of consciousness attained, whereas brothers will sense each other precisely according to consciousness.
Brothers may not be working together outwardly, but their thinking will be strongly knit together. This will be united freely; their unity will not be a burdensome yoke or a bondage.
But precisely these brothers will understand unity as a powerful motive force for the good of the world. It is impossible to place limits upon such unity, for the basis will be love. BR, Brothers — Few there are who know how to await messages in complete magnanimity, while working, and amidst difficulties—such co-workers are the ones who become brothers. The highest degree of knowledge. To become a Buddha one has to break through the bondage of sense and personality; to acquire a complete perception of the REAL SELF and learn not to separate it from all other selves; to learn by experience the utter unreality of all phenomena of the visible Kosmos foremost of all; to reach a complete detachment from all that is evanescent and finite, and live while yet on Earth in the immortal and the everlasting alone, in a supreme state of holiness.
In Principle, the process of perfecting is perpetual; therefore, when talking of perfection one must remember the many gradations of perfection meant for particular cycles of the planet and planets, etc. In the case of Buddha, this perfection is immeasurably high as He, together with several other Spirits, came to Earth from the highest planet in the Third Race of our cycle for the acceleration of the evolution of humanity. Therefore, He will not incarnate again on our Earth but only in the last race of the cycle of the highest planet of our solar system.
The name given to Gautama, the Prince of Kapilavastu, at his birth. It is an abbreviation of Sarvartthasiddha and means, the "realization of all desires". Gautama, which means, "on earth gau the most victorious tama " was the sacerdotal name of the Sakya family, the kingly patronymic of the dynasty to which the father of Gautama, the King Suddhodhana of Kapilavastu, belonged.
Kapilavastu was an ancient city, the birth-place of the Great Reformer and was destroyed during his life time. In the title Sakyamuni, the last component, muni , is rendered as meaning one "mighty in charity, isolation and silence", and the former Sakya is the family name.
Every Orientalist or Pundit knows by heart the story of Gautama, the Buddha, the most perfect of mortal men that the world has ever seen, but none of them seem to suspect the esoteric meaning underlying his prenatal biography, i. The Lalitavistara tells the tale, but abstains from hinting at the truth. The 5, Jatakas , or the events of former births re-incarnations are taken literally instead of esoterically. Gautama, the Buddha, would not have been a mortal man, had he not passed through hundreds and thousands of births previous to his last.
Yet the detailed account of these, and the statement that during them he worked his way up through every stage of transmigration from the lowest animate and inanimate atom and insect, up to the highest—or man , contains simply the well-known occult aphorism: Every human being who has ever existed, has passed through the same evolution. But the hidden symbolism in the sequence of these re-births jataka contains a perfect history of the evolution of this earth, pre and post human, and is a scientific exposition of natural facts.
One truth not veiled but bare and open is found in their nomenclature, viz. He became a full Buddha on the night of the 8th day of the twelth moon, in the year , and finally entered Nirvana in the year , according to Southern Buddhism. The Orientalists, however, have decided upon several other dates. All the rest is allegorical. He attained the state of Bodhisattva on earth when in the personality called Prabhapala. Tushita stands for a place on this globe, not for a paradise in the invisible regions.
The selection of the Sakya family and his mother Maya, as "the purest on earth", is in accordance with the model of the nativity for every Savior, God or deified Reformer. The whole events of his noble life are given in occult numbers, and every so-called miraculous event—so deplored by Orientalists as confusing the narrative and making it impossible to extricate truth from fiction—is simply the allegorical veiling of the truth. It is as comprehensible to an Occultist learned in symbolism, as it is difficult to understand for a European scholar ignorant of Occultism.
Every detail of the narrative after his death and before cremation is a chapter of facts written in a language which must be studied before it is understood, otherwise its dead letter will lead one into absurd contradictions. For instance, having reminded his disciples of the immortality of Dharmakaya, Buddha is said to have passed into Samadhi, and lost himself in Nirvana— from which none can return. And yet, notwithstanding this, the Buddha is shown bursting open the lid of the coffin, and stepping out of it; saluting with folded hands his mother Maya who had suddenly appeared in the air, though she had died seven days after his birth, etc.
As Buddha was a Chakravartti he who turns the wheel of the Law , his body at its cremation could not be consumed by common fire. Suddenly a jet of flame burst out of the Svastica on his breast, and reduced his body to ashes. Space prevents giving more instances.
As to his being one of the true and undeniable SAVIORS of the World, suffice it to say that the most rabid orthodox missionary, unless he is hopelessly insane, or has not the least regard even for historical truth, cannot find one smallest accusation against the life and personal character of Gautama, the "Buddha".
Without any claim to divinity, allowing his followers to fall into atheism, rather than into the degrading superstition of deva or idol-worship, his walk in life is from the beginning to the end, holy and divine. During the 45 years of his mission it is blameless and pure as that of a god—or as the latter should be. He is a perfect example of a divine, godly man.
He reached Buddhaship— i. Esoteric teachings claim that he renounced Nirvana and gave up the Dharmakaya vesture to remain a "Buddha of compassion" within the reach of the miseries of this world. And the religious philosophy he left to it has produced for over 2, years generations of good and unselfish men.
His is the only absolutely bloodless religion among all the existing religions: No persecutions, and enforcement of faith by fire and sword, have ever disgraced it. No thunder-and-lightning-vomiting god has interfered with its chaste commandments; and if the simple, humane and philosophical code of daily life left to us by the greatest Man-Reformer ever known, should ever come to be adopted by mankind at large, then indeed an era of bliss and peace would dawn on Humanity.
TG Buddhi — Sk. The sixth principle, i. Buddhi , in its highest aspect, is manifested in the heart. The Great Enlightenment consisted in a perception of causes of suffering and of the way of salvation from suffering.
Buddhism teaches that nirvana , release from liability to suffering, from mortality, is the highest goal attainable, now or hereafter. All beings, gods and men alike, are in need of such salvation. The teaching dharma as to the way of salvation is embodied in the "Four Aryan or Noble Truths": Buddha denied the special virtue of caste, ritualism, and asceticism, and insisted upon the necessity of pity, kindliness, and patience, for salvation.
Buddhism has developed and still embraces many sects. The two main divisions are Hinayana literally, small vehicle, known as Early, Pali , or less correctly, Southern, Buddhism and Mahayana great vehicle, known also as Northern, or Later , Buddhism In the latter the Buddha is deified, and an elaborate pantheon of Bodhisattvas and other divinities is found. The greater part of Buddhist art is Mahayana. Two disciples were discussing the most expressive symbol for this concept.
One proposed gold, but the other suggested that white marble might be better. Both agreed that a burden, meaning something weighty, would be best expressed by a stone. But the Teacher observed, "The smallest seed corresponds to the concept of the burden of the world. The Cabbala was traditionally handed down by oral transmission.
Cagliostro, Allessandro, Count — A famous Adept, whose real name is claimed by his enemies to have been Joseph Balsamo. He was a native of Palermo, and studied under some mysterious foreigner of whom little has been ascertained. His accepted history is too well known to need repetition, and his real history has never been told. His fate was that of every human being who proves that he knows more than do his fellow-creatures; he was "stoned to death" by persecutions, lies, and infamous accusations, and yet he was the friend and adviser of the highest and and mightiest of every land he visited.
He was finally tried and sentenced in Rome as a heretic, and was said to have died during his confinement in a State prison. Yet his end was not utterly undeserved, as he had been untrue to his vows in some respects, had fallen from his state of chastity and yielded to ambition and selfishness. TG Callicratus — Gr.
A disciple of Apollonius of Tyana. Calls — People frequently hear voices that seem to be calling to them. Sometimes such calls are so strong that they force one to start and look around, though others present do not hear them. Can one possibly doubt that such spatial sendings do occur?
Only a very refined organism can sense, as it were, a call; it will be desirous of making sudden observations. It is necessary to be prepared to respond to such a call. An imperative call about altruism and mutual understanding reaches certain people.
But pay attention to the unexpectedness of such arrivals. If, on a map of the world, the places be marked where Our call is perceived, a very unexpected pattern will result. The manifestation of calmness will be a sign of Service. Such calmness and but one breath of prana will provide a strong shield. Each agitation distorts the clarity. Likewise, the primary energy requires calmness in order to reflect Truth.
It should not be assumed that calmness is decline and enfeeblement. Only disorderly agitation can distort the mirror of energy. People talk much about the tranquility of wise men, but it is really a great tension, so great that the surface of the energy becomes mirror-like. Thus, calmness must not be taken for inaction. Thus, knowledge of the meaning of battle will bestow calmness. The sower of cosmic fires into the consciousness of men is a true co-worker of Cosmos.
Hence each fiery thought conforms to the tensed Magnet. Therefore, the thought of the Carrier of Fires is in itself of cosmic creativeness, and wishes of the Carrier of Fires powerfully advance evolution. INF II, Causal Body — The spiritual Soul of man, formed by the triad of the seventh, sixth and fifth principles, where lies the true individuality of man, as distinguished from his lower soul or his personality. It is called Karanopadhi , "the basis of the Cause", by the Taraka Raja Yogis; and in the Vedanta system it corresponds to both the Vignanamaya and Anandamaya Kosha , the latter coming next to Atma, and therefore being the vehicle of the universal Spirit.
Buddhi alone could not be called a "Causal Body", but becomes so in conjunction with Manas, the incarnating Entity or Ego. The precept that every origin shall have its consequence, and every happening its cause. Unification is affirmation of the Cosmic law of Causality. In it is contained the answer to every question. The human mind is confused by the problem of misfortunes, but the law of Causality brings one to the law of Karma.
Man is exasperated at calamities, but the law of Causality points out to him the sources of same. Man is bewildered by strange disturbances of equilibrium, but the Cosmic law invokes Higher Justice. He who is aligned with the law of Causality in his spirit, is already allied with Truth.
If schools and churches would proclaim the law of Causality, the consciousness would be then on a higher level, as that which is separated from the foundations of Existence, cannot advance.
It is right to affirm that a primary cause cannot exist without the one Fire of Being; and Cosmic Construction proceeds in like manner, uniting those things which by right belong together.
Thus, everything is unified in the Cosmos. The law of Causality must be accepted in all its might. It is especially erroneous to think of a manifestation as having one single effect. Around each action there can be observed many different realms which exert an influence and on which an influence is exerted.
One must assimilate the fact that the sphere of each action is far broader than can be defined according to earthly reasoning. Thus, by each action and each thought people contact several spheres.
One must accustom oneself to the complexity of effects. No one wishes to understand that a certain time must elapse between cause and effect. BR, Caution — What we mean by caution must be definitely understood. The ignorant may assume that caution is inaction or the gloom of fear.
On the contrary, caution is a strengthening of action, watchfulness and courage. Caution is very necessary when fiery waves are provoked. One can resist such tensions by means of the magnet of Hierarchy. When I indicate caution, it is necessary to direct the heart, aflame to Hierarchy. A cloud impels a gardener to take measures for protection, but he is not afraid of every whirlwind.
BR, Cedar — One of the family of coniferous trees. One of the "lifegivers" which store the heart energy of nature and nourish all the nerve centers with fiery energy. Plants will indicate the better possibilities.
Look for cedars and pines, heather and oak, grass and flowers of vivid color. Natural electrification in a locality is necessary. Large, long needles of evergreen are the best condensers of electricity.
Druids also called the chalice of cedar resin the chalice of life. And only later, with the loss of the realization of the spirit, was it replaced by blood.
The fire of Zoroaster was the result of burning of the cedar resin in the chalice. LMG II, 72 Center of the Shoulders — You have already experienced the two sharp points piercing the region of the shoulder blades, and with the same piercing the centers of the lungs may be opened.
These centers control prana. The legend concerning wings is highly symbolic. Likewise, it was a favorite custom of the ancients to wear a round metal plate upon their breasts.
But for complete crowning, man must kindle all the forty-nine fires which include all the fires of all the centers and their branches. All spiritual centers depend on the heart. The heart is the great accumulator and transmuter of all the energies; it may be called the sun of the organism because of the role it plays. Sometimes the nerve centers are not consciously realized and, being partly opened, often show the symptoms of tuberculosis, asthma, rheumatism, and other diseases.
The opening of and acting of these centers should first be manifested in their psychic or spiritual aspects. With a constant inner striving toward the Highest, and a broadening of the consciousness, the acceleration of the opening of the centers is quite possible. It comes either with the help and guidance of the Great Teacher of Light, or sometimes from contact with the purified fiery aura of a high disciple. Everything must come from higher to lower, from spiritual to physical, but not vice versa.
Excessive physical exercises, such as sports, are also quite harmful. How many centuries must pass before the spirit that broke away can again grasp a new link!
And we know that all the majestic concepts and the whole beauty of Eastern thought evolved precisely from the sequence and succession in the infinite Hierarchic Chain, which consists of links formed by the limitless devotion of a disciple to his Guru. Thus, the East looks upon a Teacher who rejects the Hierarchic principle as upon a dry, rootless tree. To deprive the spirit of reverence for the great concept of the Teacher is equivalent to spiritual suicide.
The Great Teachers provide our nurture; without it, not only would we die but so would the whole planet. Effulgent is the White Chain from the Mountains of Light. These are significant times, when even the humblest discern the magnificence of the White Chain. All Indications should be fulfilled so that the specks of imperil may not impede the might of the White Forces. H, Chain of the Planets — This expression used in The Secret Doctrine and The Mahatma Letters refers to different stages of the same planets as they might appear in a "space-time continuum"—visible and invisible.
Translated means "wheel" or "disc". There are forty-nine chakras or centers altogether. In Agni Yoga twenty-one are mentioned and it is the opening and transmuting of these 21 centers that causes the kindling of the rest. The seven main chakras and their locations are: Muladhara-Kundalini, located at the bottom of the spine; 2.
Svadhisthana-chakra, in the abdomen between the base of the spine and the navel; 3. Anahata-chakra, or the Chalice; 5. Vishuddha-chakra or the center of the throat; 6. Ajna-chakra, or the Third Eye; 7. Brahamarandra-chakra, or the Bell, on the top of the head.
There are also seldom mentioned centers in the shoulders, cheeks, lungs, wrists, knees, kidneys, etc. All these chakras have important functions peculiar to them and are important in their own right, but for the most important chakra, and the one that none of the others can survive without is the Center of the Heart, or the Anahata-chakra. It is through this center that the Fiery Energy is disseminated throughout the organism and by means of the action of this center that the other centers are kindled.
The Heart Center, the center of the Larynx, and the center in the Solar Plexus form an important triad and seem to "work together", as it were. The throat center is closely connected with striving and with synthesis.
All the centers react strongly to various reactions of the individual, indeed they mirror his every mood and the fluctuations of his emotions, usually to their own detriment, for it is the calm and placid nature in the world of contrasts that allows his centers to develop.
The greatest enemy of the centers is irritation, which causes the blocking up of the nerve channels and the starving off of the centers from their sustenance that comes in the form of Vital Energy. Upon them all things play; upon them, all things resound; upon them, all is transmuted. When the force of the cosmic ray is intensified, the responding vibration attracts the corresponding fire. Creation always strains the centers. When the force of vibration reestablishes the correlation of the centers, coordination is attained.
It is impossible to establish correlation without the responding vibration. The creativeness of an Agni Yogi is based upon the striving toward vibration. The centers vibrate like most sensitive strings.
Upon them, all things play; upon them, all things resound; upon them, all is transmuted. When We, Brothers of Humanity, had to immerse into human emanations, We encountered powerful currents. The manifestation of fires strain so greatly all centers. The subtle energies are locked within the center of the Chalice, and therefore all changes are felt quite keenly. One may assert that all occurrences, manifest and unmanifest, play upon the currents of the fires of an Agni Yogi.
INF I, A wise host does not light all fires without special purpose. Thus, in ancient legends there is mentioned the mountain surrounded by flame, but it is not stated anywhere that the fire burnt continuously; it rose according to the need.
Thus also your fires glow according to necessity—the Eye of Brahma, or the wings, or the rays from the larynx, or the other principal twenty-one fires—it is necessary to permit them to be kindled according to their natures. It is necessary to point out that the fires act according to their power of contact with the Hierarchy. Conflagration or unbridled burning is not permissible.
In the Great Service, care and caution are the first principles of the highest cooperation. We protect each particle of the energy of the Elohim and each Uruci, from the Fire of Space.
They were "savants", the magicians of Babylonia, astrologers and diviners. The famous Hillel, the precursor of Jesus in philosophy and in ethics, was a Chaldean. Since times immemorial the Chalice has been a symbol of Service. The gifts of Higher Forces are gathered in the Chalice and given from the Chalice. The symbol of the Chalice has always stood for self-sacrifice. Whoever bears the Chalice bears Achievement. Each lofty deed can be marked by the symbol of the Chalice.
Everything most lofty, everything for the good of humanity, should bear this symbol. The Heart of the Cosmos is reflected in this great symbol. All images of Heroes of the Spirit may be represented as bearing the Chalice. The whole universe is reflected in the Chalice of the fiery spirit. The Chalice contains the accumulations of centuries which are gathered around the seed of the spirit. It is necessary to accept the affirmation of the Chalice as a great symbol in everyday life.
Small children, and all youth, should be taught to think about the Chalice. One should understand the entire diversity of forms of the great symbol, the Chalice. The Chalice is the focal point of all emanations.
This is the focus in which and through which all emanations of the seed of the spirit are refracted and spread. The Chalice forms a triangle between the center of the heart and the solar plexus. It is the Chalice above the solar plexus at the level of the heart. Let us see how the Agni Yogi creates and transmutes.
The fire of the Chalice represents the psycho-dynamics which ignites around it all energies. Through the synthesis of the Chalice, all fires, at different degrees, are directed by summons toward the cumulation of the Chalice of Amrita.
To drink the poison of the world in order to be reborn with full power! This symbol comes from ancient legends. We see it in Egypt, in Greece; Shiva himself recalls it; a whole chain of Redeemers bears the chalice of poison, transforming it into Amrita.
Four guardians, protect the Chalice of the Archangel! Unprecedented is the time when events are poured cosmically into the Chalice of the Archangel! FW I, Chalice of Attainment — Refers to part of an ancient mystery in which juice of the pomegranite was poured from four sides of a container, to symbolize the readiness to serve the General Good without end.
Chaos — Cosmic dissonance. The result of discord and disunity. The antithesis of the aims of the Brotherhood and the benign influence of the Cosmic Magnet. Evolution is the antipode of Chaos. Evil should be opposed as a manifestation of chaos. Only a steadfast consciousness can be a protection against chaos. It overwhelms wherever the least vacillation is found. Chaos loses no opportunity of breaking through a weak barrier.
Many suppose that the very concept of chaos excludes any system. A representation of chaos as completely formless will be untrue. Even in each life it can be observed how subtly chaos creeps in. It intrudes as an actual decomposing force. BR, Cheerfulness — Creativeness is the basis of evolution. With what then is it possible to strengthen the acts of creative power? Joy is a special wisdom. Cheerfulness is a special technique.
This enhancement of vigor arises out of a conscious realization of the creativeness of elements. Truly, creative patience and cheerfulness are the two wings of the worker. COM, Chela — Sk. A disciple, the pupil of a Guru or Sage. The follower of an adept of a school of philosophy. TG Chiaroscuro — It. Literally, "light and dark".
Esoterically refers to the building with Light, the light of knowledge which throws happenings into the sharp, defining light of reality and truth, enabling the individual to discern the true state of things.
Literally means "small rhythm" while Mahavan means "large rhythm". These refer to the rhythms of the Fire of Space, the rhythm of Cosmos. The Christ is our highest and most purified ego.
The word meant the highest divine principle in man. The Krestos, or neophyte, went through the sufferings and passed the tests of initiation and after being anointed, emerged as Christ, "the purified".
Perhaps Brotherhood does exist? Perhaps, as an earthly anchor, it maintains equilibrium? Perhaps in the dreams of humanity it has remained as an unalterable reality?
Let us recall certain dreams and visions, so clearly engraved upon the memory, visions of walls and towers of the Brotherhood. The imagination is but a memory of that which exists. Perhaps someone will remember also in reality the Tower of Chun? BR, 7 One should not speak or even think about the Brotherhood if dissension, disturbance, and unbelief are felt. As delicate blossoms droop in a smoky atmosphere, so also the Images of the Brotherhood fly away amid irritation and falsehood.
That which was still convincing yesterday can be distorted in the confusion of the heart. The clearest reflection of the Tower of Chun can be shattered by a crude touch.
BR, Circle — Occultly, the circle appears as an impersonation of the human organism broadened by possibilities. The best number for the circle is seven. The circles of keen sight proceed centrifugally and those of receptivity proceed centripetally. From symbols and dim outlines they advance spirally to sharp fact, to clair-call, clair-audience, clair-voyance, clair-understanding, clair-achievement, clair-knowledge.
The first circle concerns the near ones and future events. The second is confined to current matters and to the near future. The third embraces the past which concerns the near ones. The fourth encompasses past events. The fifth is within the limits of the contemporary world.
