The theme of the Buddhas
or Kumaras is vast and comprehensive and I have done my
best to condense and essentialize the salient points of
the theme as presented by the Tibetan.
This opening paper is a simple
introduction and an overview to the three Kumaras while
parts two and three [inserted below, into this one web page] will
deal with technical correlations to the science of triangles,
planetary center relations and other scientific occult
data of interest to relatively advanced students of the Seven
Since the momentous year of the
Great Decision 1952, the word has gone forth via the NGWS and
we have planted the seed and created the general world thought-form
of the Science of Triangles, Triangles of Light and World Goodwill.
Now is the third phase REVELATORY
ERA of modern Occultism and the time for the potency of the Triangles
of Light to be augmented and their potency objectively demonstrated
because the three Kumaras have become aware of the existence
of our global NGWS thought-form in its nature of light and its
quality of goodwill. They now are in position to augment and pour
of Their life into the world-wide network as need arises
and emergency decrees and through this process the Will of Sanat
Kumara will hold sway.
The three Buddhas of Activity
represent conscious intelligent life, conscious, intelligent and
active wisdom, and conscious, intelligent and active creation.
The Tibetan offers us
the following analogy:
Buddhas of Activity
are to Shamballa
Nirmanakayas - the group of divine Contemplatives
are to the Hierarchy
the New Group of World Servers
It is correct to state therefore
1. The Buddhas
of Activity are Themselves impressed by the WILL of God
as it energizes the entire planetary life.
2. The Nirmanakayas
are impressed by the LOVE of God
3. The New Group
of World Servers are impressed by the active INTELLIGENCE of
It might be said here that the
three Buddhas of Activity are the primary impressing Agents
of the Manu, Christ and Mahachohan, the "impressed
Recipients" at the atmic level of awareness, which
is the area energized by the Will of Sanat Kumara. The
Tibetan says that "this is found midway between the highest
plane whereon the Council Chamber of Sanat Kumara is found
and the three planes which form the active arena for hierarchical
work - the three levels of consciousness of the Spiritual Triad.
This "focused area"
has been precipitated by the Agents of the divine Will; They know
the ultimate purpose of Sanat Kumara and hold it steadfastly
in view, making it available to those Masters of the Wisdom Who
can act as the "impressing Agents of Sanat Kumara's
These are the Manu, the
Christ, and the Mahachohan, the Lord of Civilization."
I will now attempt to carry this
conception of divine impression down to the level of our present
group understanding. A consideration of at present highly-inaccessible
occult truths, such as those dealing with the theme of this Letter
on the "three Pupils of Sanat Kumara", will hopefully
ultimately serve to inspire our minds, evoke our intuition and
give us greater vision and increased planetary perception.
What do the names
of these great Individualities mean to us?
The three Agents of the Divine
Triplicity Who are known, esoterically and in the East
as the three Kumaras, or the three Buddhas of Activity
remain but names and possible hypothetical expressions of divinity
until after the third initiation when the conscious recognition
of the Monad becomes possible; then Forces and Energies, personified
for us in these great and stupendous Lives, can be demonstrated
as having true existence.
Therefore, all that I here tell
you must be regarded as possible of verification, and as being
testified to by the initiates of all lands, but it must necessarily
remain personally unverified by the group until a later date in
its antahkarana construction, extension and unfoldment.
Consider with me, if you
will, however, the extreme practical import of this study.
The three strands or cables of
our group antahkarana are destined to be securely anchored
via the three Buddhas of Activity in the Council Chamber
of the King.
Rule XIII in the Rays and
the Initiations makes explicit reference to this fact. In
this spirit, therefore, let us consider the role and function
in the Planetary Scheme of the three Pupils of the Supreme King
of the Planet, Sanat Kumara Who is the source of the energy
of the three major Rays and Aspects of which Shamballa,
Hierarchy and Humanity are the expression. He alone is the Custodian
of the Supreme Will of the Great White Lodge on Sirius, and the
burden of His cosmic purpose is shared by His three principle
Pupils, the Buddhas of Activity.
First however, please do read
once agan Rule XIII. From the Tibetan:
we find a relation to the spiritual Triad and the three points
in the Council Chamber which are presided over by the three
Buddhas of Activity, and within Whose exalted
consciousness the three strands of the antahkarana meet
and become active in a way incomprehensible to you. Necessarily,
this great antahkarana is not constructed correctly except
by those whose individual antahkaranas are likewise in
process of construction."
three points of anchorage within the sphere of the planetary
Consciousness, or (if you like it better, though remembering
ever that we are speaking and thinking in terms of symbols)
in the planetary brain, find their feeble correspondence in
[RI257] the three points of sensitivity in the head of a disciple
or initiate, that is, in the region of the pineal gland, the
pituitary body and the carotid gland. These, as you know, are
to be found within the areas to which we give the names the
head center, the ajna center and the alta
major center. These correspondences are very real, even
though functioning upon a minute scale; the initiate achieves
his desired "perfecting" when the triad within his
head is related, and love, will and intelligence are functioning
in synthesis. Here we find a relation to the spiritual Triad
and the three points in the Council Chamber which are presided
over by the three Buddhas of Activity, and within Whose
exalted consciousness the three strands of the antahkarana
meet and become active in a way incomprehensible to you. Necessarily,
this great antahkarana is not constructed correctly except
by those whose individual antahkaranas are likewise in
process of construction.
you, therefore, the necessity of eventually organizing a group
in the world which will be so constituted and so carefully chosen
and interiorly related that all its members are initiates, all
have created their own "rainbow bridges" with understanding
and accuracy, and all can now work in such complete unity that
the group antahkarana becomes a channel of unimpeded communication
direct from Shamballa to the group because every member
of the group is a member of the Hierarchy. In this manner the
three planetary centers arrive at the needed relationship,
and another great triangle reaches true functioning activity.
When this takes place, a revelation undreamed of will be manifested
upon the Earth; a new divine quality, of which no knowledge at
present exists, will make its presence felt, and the work of the
Buddha and of the Christ, and the work of the coming Avatar, will
be superseded by One for Whom both Shamballa and the Hierarchy
have unitedly waited and of Whom the doctrine of the Messiah
and the doctrine of Avatars have been and are today only the dim
distant symbols. They preserve this concept of the Great Revelation
in the consciousness of men, in the expectancy which the Hierarchy
evidences,  and through the "preparatory work"
now being undertaken at Shamballa.
group, therefore, to whom I address this instruction
is not the group or groups who will first receive these papers.
The instruction is intended for a group which will come later
and which will prepare the way, and of which some of the more
advanced aspirants can form part if they "walk humbly with
my brother, is one of the most advanced injunctions in any of
the world Scriptures and is found in The Bible. It has no reference
to humility as usually interpreted and understood. It signifies
the ability to view all life with a sense of divine proportion
and from the angle of spiritual mathematics, and (paradoxical
as this may sound) with no sense of dualism. The usual meaning
is not correct. It involves acceptance and comprehension of
purpose, and this in such a manner that the consecrated personality
- under control of the Monad, via the antahkarana, and
in cooperation with the one known God - walks the ways of Earth
as a channel for the three divine qualities (love, will and
intelligence), but also as a channel for that which these three
qualities will enable him later to sense, know and reveal."
In this letter I intend to confine
my attention to the 3rd Ray of Active Matter, or to that latent
heat in substance which underlies all planetary activity and is
the cause of our planets motion.
If we think with clarity on the
subject we will see how closely the three Buddhas of Activity
are closely connected with our Planetary Karma as it concerns
one or other of the three fires while Sanat Kumara synthesizes
the work of his three Brothers and attends to the uniform blending
and merging of said fires. The function of the three Buddhas
of Activity is highly occult. They are three aspects of the one
aspect, and, as just stated, the pupils of Sanat Kumara.
In short, these three Buddhas are the creative Agents of
the KING and are Wielders of His Law of Evolution.
The Buddhas of Activity
embody within themselves the essence of the third Ray of Active
Intelligence, through which the third aspect can successfully
project and express itself. It is these three Buddhas who
were instrumental in the occult process of implementing the mental
principle upon our planet, and who - through their creative meditation
- brought our planet, the Earth, and the planet Venus into direct
alignment. "This made possible the coming of the Sons
of Mind and the formation of the fourth kingdom in nature, Humanity.
They are Embodiments of the intuition, and control the inflow
of intuitional energy into the minds of men."
The three keys to the "mystery
of electricity" are held one each in the hands of the three
Buddhas of Activity. Theirs is the prerogative to control
the triple electrical forces of the 3rd Aspect on the physical
plane, and Theirs the right to direct the three major streams
in connection with our present planetary globe. These three electrical
streams of energy are concerned with atomic substance, out of
which all forms are constructed.
The three Buddhas
Themselves form a deeply esoteric Triangle related to the Throat
Center of the solar system, 3rd ray planet Saturn.
The throat center
has a small symbolic triangle of its own, to which I would call
attention: the thyroid gland and the parathyroid. The dense physical
externalization of the Throat center is the thyroid gland
- (larynx, vocal cords and palate) . Its purpose is to
guard health, to balance the bodily equilibrium in certain key
aspects of the physical nature.
Thus it will be apparent to you
how whole areas of the planetary physical organism are brought
into active and correct functioning, vitalized and kept in good
and true condition by the activity of the three Buddhas
The three great energies which
are brought into play during the divine creative activity are
unified in activity by the full expression of the energy flowing
through the throat center, through the apparatus of speech
and the two lungs.
You have in this relation: Life
or Breath, the Word or the Soul, and the throat center
of Substance in activity."
The throat center best
symbolizes the "Holy Spirit" or third aspect of intelligence
and of substance impregnated with mind. It is connected with the
the third divine aspect in manifestation, "over-shadowing",
the Mother, the Virgin Mary.
The Mother, or the negative aspect,
builds and nourishes, guards and cherishes the Son through
the antenatal, and the infant stages, and stands around Him during
later stages, giving of the energy of her own body and activity
in ministry to His need. The Tibetan says, employing biblical
symbolism, that the para-thyroids are symbolic of
Mary and Joseph and the relation they hold to the over-shadowing
Therefore, we arrive at the realization
that the 3rd ray personality of Earth in its relation to the fire
of matter, is directly influenced and adjusted in its working
by the third of the three Buddhas of Activity.
The three Buddhas, Who
are the cosmic Prototypes of the Lords of the three major rays
are the correspondence of these three rays and are responsible
for the entire manifested universe, but only, according to D.K.,
"within the orbit of the third aspect, the expression
of the Universal Mind."
The functions of the three Pupils
of Sanat Kumara are many and varied but dealing primarily
with the electrical forces and energies of nature, and the direction
of the building (Deva) agencies. Each embody the
force or energy of one or other of the three higher subplanes
of the cosmic mental plane:
Sanat Kumara only
directly deals with the ego on the mental plane while His three
Pupils deal with the other three types of consciousness, of which
man is the summation.
1st Kumara: Human Kingdom:
Sanat Kumara is the energy
which produces self-consciousness in the human family.
1st Buddha: Animal
The three Buddhas are the
source of the energy which animates the three lower kingdoms,
and which produces their differing grades of consciousness.
These three great Buddhas
summarize the transmuted essence of the third solar system. The
essence that underlied all the activity of the third solar
system was intelligent activity, not love, the basis of system
II, the present.
They are the three supreme Personalities
in the Council Chamber or Triad Who stands closest to Sanat
Kumara and are, as just stated, the planetary correspondences
to the three Aspects of the logoic third Aspect and are
concerned with the force behind planetary manifestation.
Under the Law of Analogy,
They are to Sanat Kumara what the three mind aspects upon
the mental plane are to the disciple and the initiate.
They represent in action:
1. The concrete or lower mind
of the planetary Logos,2. That energy which we call the
soul,3. The higher or abstract mind.
The Three Buddhas
of Activity are essentially the "eye within the Triangle",
the expression, in activity, of the "All-Seeing Eye"
through whose agency Sanat Kumara sees, and through them
and the energy directed through them, He directs the creative
These three great Lives Who have
associated Themselves with the Lord of the World might be regarded
as constituting aspects of His personality, though this is not
technically so. "The times and seasons of their appearing
vary according to the particular karma of the Lord of the Ray,
and nothing in connection with these great cycles, and incarnation
periods, can be revealed to the unpledged and the profane."
[TCF729] "According to astrological conditions, and according
to the turning of the planetary wheel of life, so one or another
of the six Buddhas of Activity on our Planetary Scheme
will be active.
The three Buddhas of
Activity change from time to time, and become in turn exoteric
or esoteric as the case may be. Only the King, Sanat Kumara
is self-sustaning and persists steadily and watchfully
in active physical incarnation."
The three exoteric Buddhas
are the sumtotal of activity or planetary energy while
the three esoteric Buddhas embody types of energy which
as yet are not in full demonstration upon our planet. Each of
these six Buddhas is a reflection of, and the distributing
agent for, the energy and force of one of the six other Planetary
Logoi, the remaining six spirits before the Throne.
Through each of them passes the
life force of one of the six rays. The Buddha's of Activity, are
but the vicegerents upon our planet of those three planetary Logoi,
Who, with our planetary Logos, make the sum total of the logoic
Associated with them are the three
esoteric Buddhas of Activity Who represent the three other
planetary ray Logoi, and so make focal points for
all the ray forces within our planeatary chain.
Again, keep in mind; in each chain
six Buddhas are found; six focal points embraced by the
seventh, the planetary Logos of the scheme, Who holds them
all within His aura.
They are the centers in the body of the planetary Logos.
Each chain corresponds to one center, and the globes are
but the lesser wheels within any particular center. The
life of the Logos in this incarnation on the Earth is flowing
through three centers and beginning to stimulate a fourth,
hence four globes are involved and the three Kumaras (so
called for lack of a better term) are vitally intelligently active;
three are in abeyance and one is beginning to function. The globes
correspond to the chains. This fourth Kumara is as yet practically
unrealized, but as hinted at earlier His day is about to dawn."
Second. They act as transmitters
of a particular type of force to those units who go to the content
of any particular center. They are, in fact, the agents
for the Lords of the Rays to the Monads of any ray in incarnation
in any particular chain and on any particular globe.
They are the agents for:
Lord of a Ray as stated above.
The planetary Logos of Their own scheme.
great Deva of the Earth planet.
"They work with the
law; They are the cognizers of the intelligent purpose
of the planetary Logos, and know His plans; They are the vital
activity of the planet, and in a subtle sense they are not only
the Ray representatives but likewise the link between the chain
and the scheme.The normal contacts of the three Buddhas
is extra-planetary and are very seldom of a planetary nature.
They are in direct rapport with the Planetary Logos upon His
own high plane, the cosmic mental plane.Their
major characteristic is Will or Purpose. They embody and consciously
know and intelligently appreciate what is the motivating idea
which the Planetary Logos - working consciously on His own high
level - seeks to work out and achieve in His planned incarnation
through a planet. He functions when in incarnation on the cosmic
physical plane, and embodies the seven principles of which we
know, and all is focused in and through the Individuality of
Sanat Kumara, implemented and energized through the seven
planetary centers. His three Pupils are expressions of
their "counterparts on cosmic levels of the energies latent
in the three permanent atoms in the three worlds of human endeavor."
three Pupils steadfastly sustain and cooperates with Him in his
concentrated creative thought and are the agents for attracting
- through the potency of their meditation the required extra-planetary
energies within the orbit of the universal mind which he needs
to carry forward his vehicle of expression, the Earth, and thus
to bind all together into one great created whole, tending ceaselessly
to the greater "Glory of God". His three principle students
wield the Law of Synthesis and hold steadfastly in the universal
Mind the ultimate result of His magnificent and supreme divine
From the NGWS Triangles of Light
now created and assembled, the Buddhas of Activity extract
those essential qualities which can go to the building of this
aspect of the planetary antahkarana. Reflect on this.
I remind you;
the creative antahkarana meditation work of the New
Group of World Servers especially the Science of Triangles has
for its objectives the creation of the new civilization and of
the new world order. Antahkarana meditation, indiviudal,
planetary, systemic and cosmic is the major creative agent in
our universe with the emphasis upon creation by use of mental
energies in process of unfolding or expressing themselves in the
The quality and the conditions
of the manifesting universe, solar system or planet are known
to us. It must be borne in mind that in all manifestations the
three aspects, purpose or will, attraction magnetic love or plan,
and appearance as manifestation of both of these are necessarily
present. The manifesting Entity on our planet, Sanat Kumara
is responsible for the three major expressions of divinity and
"occultly declares" all conditions and qualities.
You can gather as you read from
this series of Letters on Occult Cosmology what a tremendous field
of esoteric truth I have attempted to comprehensively cover and
how abstruse to the average occult student is the whole of our
theme on the Antahkarana. Again I would remind you that
the real significance of the antahkarana formulations will
only be perceived by the trained disciple.
My explanation of the seven
ray Words or Phrases of Power and the system of Lodge or spiritual
mathematics I explained incidental to the construction of the
the seven cables of the planetary rainbow bridge and cautious
promulgation of occult knowledge concerning the necessitated stages,
will hopefully serve to incite strenuous effort, vision and accurate
aim on the part of the group members.
Group consciousness, universal
awareness, and therefore synthetic effort, synthetic understanding
and synthetic activity are our group goal. We should not need
to be reminded that we need to read, research and study
with increasing care as we advance upon the path of the Rainbowbridge
and begin to approach the Way of the Higher Evolution.
Our mental training does not end
as we attain certain spiritual initiatory goals, in fact, it accelerates.
Each of us must begin to immediately consciously formulate a mental
propostion of the purpose of the Plan of Sanat Kumara
as the Plan has been revealed to him through the means of his
group experience. It is the exalted consciousness of S.K. which
has brought our planet and all that is within and upon it into
being. It is the fixed desire and the pattern or purpose of the
divine activity of Sanat Kumara down the ages Who
produces in manifested form the beauty of His great design.
There is a vital necessity for
each disciple to work out this grand design, its pattern, the
significances and meanings of the Plan through the medium of his
own life experiment and to arrive at correct formulation through
direct experience. As our inner Triadic realizations affect our
outer experience and daily living, then the underlying Purpose
of Sanat Kumara will shine forth and we will no longer
be working in the dark.
All we can do in this course on
planetary occultism is to fit ourselves as individuals and as
a group to grasp divine purpose, and thus see the divine design
and patterns as they are in reality. Once we have taken the needed
steps and complied with the requirements, all mystery will disappear.
It is the highest divine aspect of the Will of S.K. which we will
finally manifest, prior to entering upon the Way of the Higher
Evolution. The will, as considered and understood by the initiate,
is essentially that monadic essence, qualified by "fixed
determination," which is identified with the Will or Purpose
of Sanat Kumara. The Tibetan has said that it is through
a mental proposition of the Purpose of Sanat Kumara that
the three Buddhas of Activity implement Their triple
Sanat Kumara is the prototype
of all world saviors. Under the Law of correspondence,
each initiate functions, in replica, under such a self-formulated
mental propostion through the medium of a individually
developed, pure, reasoning will, and not simply from that of impulsive
love and its activity; the grand design, and the "fixed determination"
within the orbit of the universal mind of the three pupils of
Sanat Kumara motivates all ensuing activity.
You can now better understand
the motive behind this three part letter on the three Buddhas
is directed towards our greater understanding of and perfecting
of the third aspect of active intelligence.
The three Buddhas are Embodiments
of the intuition, and control the inflow of intuitional energy
into the minds of men. All of us, may put ourselves in the group
position of being in direct relation or alignment with the Buddhas
of Activity, who embody within themselves the essence of the third
Ray of Active Intelligence, through which the third aspect of
Sanat Kumara can successfully project and express itself,
the "hidden mystery" be revealed and all "shadows
The ancient occult maxim of the
Initiate runs: In order to tread the Path one must become that
Path itself and prove the accuracy of the occult truth that the
antahkarana is itself but illusion. Ponder on this, for
it carries illumination for those who have eyes to see.
Man is literally "THE PATH"
Initiation and the Science of
Sacred Numbers deal primarily with subjective realization and
consciousness, and not fundamentally "ability to function
on a plane," nor the energy of form or matter.
The system of "spiritual
mathematics" based on the number 10 of the White Lodge of
Sanat Kumara deal with the subjective life, life as part
of the consciousness, self-realization and identification with
the Universal Mind of Sanat Kumara and not life in matter
or form as we understand it. In this Light, the student of these
letters should very carefully study here the significance of the
numbers three, four and five in the evolution of consciousness.
Even a slight study will show
you that you have in these three numbers 3, 4, and 5 the production
of a synthesis of activity and of potencies which are essential
for the development of the consciousness of humanity
THE 3RD, 4TH AND 5TH RACES:
The three Buddhas of Activity
have a special relation to the three strictly human races, the
third, the fourth and the fifth root-races, the Lemurian,
the Atlantean and the present Aryan race. In an eoteric
manner, the Tibetan tells us they represent in Shamballa
the soul of each of these three races. He goes on to say that
the same souls reincarnate in each race, and each soul therefore
"comes in turn under the influence of each of the three Buddhas,
each of Whom is of a quality different to that of his two
I will see to it that the focus
of our study remains on the subjective aspect and ever lay
the emphasis upon the subjective psychologically. In this solar
system, do not forget, the numbers (3,4,5) are the most
important from the angle of the evolution of consciousness.
3RD BUDDHA......3RD RACE
2ND BUDDHA......4TH RACE
ATLANTEAN.....LOWER CONCRETE MIND
1ST BUDDHA......5TH RACE
To sum up:
There is a stage in the evolution
of consciousness where the three, the four and the five blend
and merge perfectly.
In connection with the root-races,
the first two are preparatory dealing with the form and the last
two are synthetic and synthesize the development of the 3rd, 4th
and 5th races; the consciousness principle itself unfolds thorough
the three central races of any one round.
The Tibetan says:
"I would here point
out a fact that is little realized, that in this fivefold evolution
of man and in this solar system, the two remaining rounds in
any planetary cycle, and the sixth and seventh root-races in
those cycles are always synthetic; their function is to gather
up and synthesize that which has been achieved in the earlier
five. For instance, in this root-race, the sixth and seventh
subraces will synthesize and blend that which the earlier
five have wrought out.
lies in the fact that in this solar system the two higher planes
(the logoic and the monadic) are synthetic. One is the
synthesizing plane for the Logos from whence He abstracts the
essence in manifestation; the other for the Monad, from whence
the Monad abstracts and garners the fruits of objectivity. [TCH165]
"So in the sixth root-race and the sixth subrace a
similar analogy will be seen. Out of the shattered form of the
fifth subrace of the fifth root race, built up under the
fifth Ray of Concrete Knowledge, with the aid of the fifth Law
of Fixation, will emerge the sixth subrace of brotherly
love - love shown in the realization of the one life latent in
each Son of God." [TCH596]
major rays of our planetary scheme at this particular time scheme
are the 1st, 2nd and 7th with the three Buddhas of Activity
holding the three "points" and working through them.
At "this particular time in our planetary Scheme, the seventh
Ray of Ceremonial Law or Order is regarded as a major ray, being
a ray of synthesis, and one on which the Mahachohan is
blending his work." [IHS181]
Two interlaced triangles,
created by the six constellations from which the three Buddhas
of Activity draw Their needed energy and to which They
are uniquely related through Their individual karma. These two
interlaced triangles are the cause of the six-pointed star,
so familiar among the many occult symbols. The Six are the six
forces of Sanat Kumara, or the types of energy embodying
His dynamic qualities and characteristics. They indicate His
life force oriented, directed in a certain alignments and direction.

and marks a point in the energizing of substance.

Two cosmic Rays of differing
polarities are mutually attracted. On extra-systemic or cosmic
levels, the individualization process produces a corresponding
activity in the egoic body of the Logos, and hence increased
vibration in that center in the body of the ONE ABOUT WHOM

It also produces a reaction
or "occult recognition" in the prototype of the Septenate,
or in the seven Rishis of the Great Bear, and this reaction
in cosmic circles will persist until the end of the mahamanvantara,
when the Logos is set free (even though temporarily), from physical
The Act of Initiation.
I would call your attention
to the word act; I am not here referring to process. His work
only begins at the third initiation when the planetary Logos is
the Initiator. At that initiation, the will aspect begins to function.
The Buddha behind the initiatory process is extremely active at
this time; He works through the Christ and the Lord of the second
ray, drawing the needed energy from the constellations Capricorn
and Aquarius. [RI269] Initiation marks a stage in the intensification
of "solar Fire." It has relation to the achievement
of Vishnu, and marks a point in the evolution of consciousness,
through self-consciousness to group consciousness, or universal
The Act of Identification.
This involves what has been
called a "moment of opening-up," during which the initiate
sees that which lies within the cosmic intent and begins to function
not only as a planetary unit but as a cosmic focal point. The
Buddha of Activity, responsible for this type of planetary activity,
works with the Lord of the first ray and functions as an outpost
of the consciousness of the informing life of Aries and of Leo.
His work is only now beginning to assume importance.
Identification with the aggregate
of all groups might be the term used to express the final stages
of the evolutionary process; it marks a period towards the close
of the mahamanvantara when all groups begin consciously
to work out the eternal Will. It involves a type of realization,
incredible to man now but which is conceivable [TCF732] (though
not yet practicable) to the Chohans of the Hierarchy now
on Earth. They work consciously carrying out the Will of the planetary
Logos in the planet, but even They are as yet far from
appreciating fully the Will and purpose of the Logos as He works
through the system. Glimpses They may get, and an idea
of the general plan, but the details are as yet unrecognizable.
From the Law of Analogy, another
exceedingly important triangle is found in the human body and
(esoterically considered) is related to the subject under consideration:
BUDDHA: BASE OF SPINE
BUDDHA: THROAT CENTER
1. The ajna center,
embodying the directing energy of that body of activity which
we call the personality.
2. The throat center,
which is peculiarly active today in all human beings; this testifies
to the success of the creative work of the Buddhas of Activity.
This, in its turn, has a small symbolic triangle of its own, to
which I would call attention: the thyroid gland and the parathyroid.
3. The center at the
base of the spine. This is galvanized into activity at a certain
stage of the evolutionary process, by energy emanating
from the Buddhas of Activity Who are the least active at
this particular time. It is an energy pouring towards the fourth
kingdom but not directed towards any individual. These
great Lives work through major groups. Their potency is such that
it would otherwise prove destructive.
