Taking the Next Step Forward
There is at this time an inner intention to blending the occidental and the oriental approaches to the ancient wisdom and to the Hierarchy. Cooperation and the mutual interchange of wisdom and of knowledge are essential if this is to be perfected. (DINA vol.1 pg. 18)
This must take the form of a closer cooperation between all groups and a standing together in a closer relationship, thus strengthening each other’s hands and, where possible, pooling resources. (DINA vol.1 pg. 20)
This is exactly what I’ve been trying to do for some time, but so far, with little success. Most students of the Alice A. Bailey’s books of the Tibetan Master DK, follow the general ideas that are given out in the books, meditations, seed thoughts, and study, as does the Arcane School and other schools that have branched off from this one teaching. I have taken part and visited some of these other schools in past years, so I’m talking from some experience. Most seem afraid to step out of the box of the books. I continue to work with other groups, such as the Twelves, which helps to strengthen the efforts we are all making.
I’ve placed posts on fb about the Symposium on the Ageless Wisdom and WESAK Festival, which has the purpose of introducing this blend of the Ageless Wisdom with an East/West flavor. In my book (Living on the Inner Edge), I mention that our group was contacted by one of the Masters and we were given a word of power. This word, or mantra, was in Sanskrit, not English. This mantra is mentioned by the Master DK as being the most sacred mantra given to humanity to date (TCF). We were given this, I believe, because our group, though Western, was made up of Eastern Souls and we experimented with the teachings of the East, yet anchoring our knowledge base from the teaching of the Master DK. The next step forward is to understand the most Sacred Science, the ‘Garland of Letters’ or ‘Mantaryana’ as it’s called in Vajrayana – Esoteric Buddhism. From understanding mantra comes the understanding and relationship with Deities. All this gives great knowledge, enhances real alignment with one’s Soul, and a more direct link to the Hierarchy of Masters. So, I implore all who are sincere workers in what the Master KH calls, ‘the cause’ to make the effort to attend this Symposium and WESAK effort. For the WESAK meditation you will be taught the mantra of the Buddha in Sanskrit and how to chant it in a particular tune and rhythm. You can find the words to this mantra on the internet, but not this tune, rhythm, and inner application of thoughts which were given to my teacher. This will be explained in full at the Symposium. You’ll see and learn about what a sacred alter is, and how this WESAK alter is made up of both 2nd, 5th, and 7th Ray attributes. What to do for the Devas of the inner school. This will make for a compelling experience and a new direction for many. The Master DK’s teaching is Vajrayana, he’s transformed it to be applicable to the (Christian) West. That’s why Theosophy was considered, “Esoteric Buddhism”. Real esoteric teaching has to been given out verbally, person to person. This has been the way of the sacred esoteric Dharma and it still is, that’s why it’s called the Ageless Wisdom.
