point I wish to make is that no particular word is going to
be given by me, because it would be useless. The OM is useless
to most people, even though trained students may now be deriving
benefit from its use. This general uselessness is caused not
only because people do not use the Word correctly, but also
because, even when using it they are not holding its significance
firmly in their consciousness. So it is with a Word of Power.
use would it be if I attempted to give the Word of the first
ray, which looks (when presented in its symbolic written form)
something like this -Ukrtapklsti? Certain sounds in this word-form
are omitted because there is no way of depicting them, since
they are neither vowels nor consonants. Correctly sounded, the
above forms three words. But I can give, as far as possible,
the English equivalent in meaning, and it is this meaning which
I ask you to have in mind as you mentally utter the sound or
Word of Power and visually attempt to see it performing the
esoteric miracle of bridge building."
first ray disciple has, therefore, to meet the requirements
to the best of his ability and to follow the four stages of
the technique of projection (pages 489-493, 509). When he has
faithfully followed this outlined routine, personality and soul
fusion has to be consciously attempted and to some measure achieved,
and then these blended factors are held steady in the triadal
light. Another point of focused intention is now brought about,
resulting in a new and still more dynamic tension. In the completed
silence which results, the act of projecting the antahkarana
is performed, [R&I,515] and it is then carried forward on
the impetus of a Word of Power.
connected with this lies behind the Masonic usage of the words,
translated into English, "So mote it be," uttered
with the right handstretched forth and signifying the embodied
will of the Lodge, itself a symbol of the Will and Purpose of
the Most High." "The meaning of the Word of Power
to be used at this point of accomplished projection might be
summed up in the words: "I assert the Fact." This
is the nearest form I can give you for the word-form earlier
mentioned. A little deep reflection on these words will show
that if uttered with an understanding of their meaning, they
are of terrific potency. The disciple who utters them assumes
and then asserts:
Spiritual Triad is a fact.
relation between the fused and blended personality and the
soul is a fact.
antahkarana is also a fact.
dual expression of the basic duality of manifestation - personality
or form and Monad or Spirit - is a fact.

instrument of its will upon the physical plane.
work is done. This factual assumption is not faith, but knowledge
and conviction, and upon this realized conviction the disciple
rests, acts and depends. It becomes an unalterable and unchangeable
of the above sevenfold statement will become clearer if the
disciple will ponder the distinction between faith and conviction.
It is this divine assertion which holds the universe in being;
it is this divine assertion which is the embodied summation
of all knowledge and love, and the first ray disciple must begin
to use this technique, resting back upon his divine prerogative
of assertion. Ponder on this statement. It is the technique
of Shamballa and the established right, prerogative and privilege
of all first ray souls.
K R T A P K L S T I
+ 2+1+7 + 2+3+1+2+9 = (4+1) = 5
The 1st ray word
of power, UKRTAPKLSTI is composed of 11 sounds that are arranged
into three words. UKR TAP KLSTI
Initially, it will
be wise here for the student to differentiate carefully in his mind
between words and sounds. The Word veils the thought or intended
idea or purpose, and the sound makes it possible to manifest in
matter of some kind, on one or other of the seven planes.
With this preliminary
thought in mind, I submit the following arrangement of three words
but invite earnest students, if they wish, to experiment for themselves
with other possible orders of the letters and the pronunciation
of the three words: UKR TAP KLSTI
5 + 10 +
The numerical value
of the three letters of the first word: the "I", is "5",
the number of self-consciousness, the number of man, the sacred
number of the 2nd ray and the [Reduced Alpha Number] value of the
11 sounds of the word UKRTAPKLSTI.
word of the threefold phrase, the UKR or "I",
carries the value and potency of the "5", or the combined
two sounds of the first word embodies the potencies of
the "5", as
(3+2=5). This is the union of knowledge, the "3" or "U",
and of love, the "2" or "K".
in this divine assertion is the "summation of all knowledge
and love" and its source - Universal Mind.
This numerical sequence
sums up the process of using knowledge and wisdom or love in reference
to the conscious self-aware Identity, or to the self-contained,
These three numbers
sum up the process of the expansion of the duad, the "2",
of the fused and blended personality and soul consciousness of the
initiate into that of the Spiritual Triad, the "3", and
is completely consummated at the fifth, the "5", initiation.
It must be remembered
that intelligence, the "3", and love, the "2",
have been ever present upon Earth, the first in greater degree than
the second, and that the task of all higher initiates is to anchor,
organize, and implement these divine aspects, energies, attributes,
and to further their development within the body of the planetary
initiate's task is to weave his antahkarana with the planetary
antahkarana with a thread of living substance, irradiated by love,
intelligently woven and energized by will.
The initiate knows
the process of building the antahkarana is one of the means whereby
man, the trinity, the "3", becomes a duality, the "2".
When the task is completed and the antahkarana is definitely built
- thus producing perfect alignment between the Monad and its expression
upon the physical plane - the body of the soul (the causal body)
is completely and finally destroyed by the fire of the Monad, pouring
down the antahkarana.
and the "3", best stand for the technique for producing
the highest form of dualism and of eliminating the threefold expression
of divinity, thereby intensifying the divine expression and bringing
the initiate nearer to his ultimate goal.
letters of the 2nd word "TAP" embody the value of the
first ray, the "10".
+ A=1 + P=7 = 10
its anglo saxon translation "assert"
also has a value of "10", as 1+1+1+5+9+2
= 19 = 10
of the one syllable word, TAP, carries the "hammerhead"
potency of the first ray assertion. (Vulcanian)
It is significant
to note the first two words contain the potency of the mathematical
rates of vibration of the 1st and 2nd major rays of aspect.
we know that only the two major rays are largely the goal of human
endeavor, the first ray and the second rays.
The symbolism of
these two numbers connects in our minds the idea that the initiate
comes under the impression of the Hierarchy, the planetary heart
center, and at that point he begins to express the combined energies
of the intelligence and of love; finally, on the Path of Initiation,
he comes under the impression of Shamballa, the planetary head center,
and becomes a participant in the divine Purpose and an Agent of
the divine Plan.
Keep in mind; the
initiate of high degree works with monadic energy and not soul force.
He works with the soul aspect and through the power of monadic energy,
using the antahkarana as a distributing agency.
The symbolism of
the sacred numbers of the two major rays here links in our minds
the idea that initiate has linked up the two major centers into
one synthetic instrument. He expresses will and love blended in
sacred numbers also stand as the the occult values for man, the
"5" and of God, the "10". The value of man is
one half of that of God - the "Perfect 10".
The symbolism of
the numerical value of the third word which equals the "8"
reveals the factual nature of the eternal dual relation between
man and God, Consciousness and Life, the monad and the soul.
The 1st and 2nd
rays relate to the two major centers - the head and the heart.
word is the five letter "KLSTI": 2+3+1+2+9 =17 = 8.
Again, this five
letter third word opens with the root of the "5",
as KL: (K=2) + (L=3) = 5
of the "S", falls in the middle place of the 3rd word
between the "5" (of the dual "KL" opening sound),
and the "11" (of the dual "TI" closing sound,
as TI: (T=2) + (I=9) = 11).
letter word KLSTI translates into the anglo saxon word "fact"
a 5th ray scientific word.
is the sacred number of the 5th ray as the root numbers of the ray
are the "3" and the "5", which when added together
yield the "8" (3+5=8).
values of the three words:
of the UKR
the "10", of TAP
the "8" of KLSTI
reduce to the
formula 2+3 = 5, (as 5+10+8 = 23 = 2+3 = 5).
Again, the same
idea - love and knowledge are the summation of universal mind.
The [Alpha Number]
value of KLSTI is "17".
and the "7", embrace the highest and the lowest and represent
the synthesis of the seven planes of consciousness.
The idea represented
here is the occult fact that the monad is directly related via the
antahkarana to the fully conscious soul on the physical plane.
Let me continue
now with an analysis of the occult significance of the number "11".
In the first place,
"11", it is a dual symbol, as we know, composed of two
"1's" placed in relations side by side. Cipher "1",
is the chief symbol of the Universal-Unit, the Male-God and the
Father Ray. It symbolizes the will of the monad and the pinnacle
of spiritual vision, the governing principle, strength, justice,
truth and divine comprehension of the Plan. The "1", embodies
the beauty of the idea of the Creative Logos, the ultimate glory
of the intelligent arrangement of the Power and the majesty of the
ordered forces fused and blended.
Keeping this thought
ever first in mind, let us now proceed with an analysis
of the "11" sounds of the 1st ray word of
U K R T
A P K L S T I 3+2+9+ 2+1+7+ 2+3+1+2+9 = (4+1) =
In their esoteric
combination, the "11" sounds produce the keynote sound
of the threefold word phrase, the sacred "5", the note
of the ray of Love-Wisdom, the number of the one universal soul
in its many aspects. This indicates that the quality of the approach
that the initiate brings to the work is drawn, as pure energy, from
the heart center of the planetary Logos; it is pure love with its
inevitable corollaries, wisdom and understanding. The "5",
best symbolizes and stands for the fact that the work of the initiate
is carried forward within the ring-pass-not of the Universal Mind.
These give him insight into the plan. The power that he can bring
to the task is drawn from his comprehension of the purpose of the
The initiate cooperates
with that purpose in full understanding and intention. He now knows.
He sees; he participates in the Plan; he relates himself to the
Will of Sanat Kumura through an understanding and he makes the divine
Intention his, as far as he can grasp it. Esoterically the "5"
is always viewed in the Pythagorean system as the product of the
union of knowledge and love as (3+2=5).
The number sacred
"5", in relation to the word of power connotes in the
initiate's mind that it is the "divine assertion" of Love
that holds the universe in being and it is the embodied summation
of all universal knowledge and love. The "5" is the outstanding
symbol for the Universal Mind of the Logos which is occupied with
the first formulation of the Plan upon which the Ideal Form of is
constructed and the Divine Idea materialized.
figure or objective body of the "5", is the pentagram.
It stands for the quintessence of the Logos spread in every direction
and forming all Matter. The supernal radiance of the "5"
reveals beauty in relationship making it the blending number, the
Light-bringer, or light-carrier.
It is the Universal
Mind of the Logos, symbolized by the "5", which reveals
the Love, and brings into rule the monadic or spirit aspect stimulating
the inner soul of all forms. Inexpressible revelations come to the
initiate who can penetrate into the mind of Sanat Kumura in certain
high places where the nature of the divine Will suddenly assumes
a different and amazing significance, where the purposes being worked
out in the Council Chamber of Shamballa are suddenly contacted with
tremendous inspiration; then, the initiate is consciously receptive
to the energy pouring into the Hierarchy from the Great White Lodge
on Sirius, the source of the second cosmic Ray of Love and of Fire
symbolized, again by the "5".
Love is then blended
with wisdom and this developed sense of universality indicates,
when present, a measure of monadic inflow. Number "5",
therefore represents the "light of knowledge" the first
"great lighted area" which the initiate can grasp is the
"circle of the Mind of God." Five are the mountain peaks
that the initiate must ascend. At each peak he receives five times
The formula from
"The Old Commentary" runs, "Five to
five and so from five to five till five fives have brought him light."
of the sounds are on the first ray line of will, intelligence
and organization: the "3", "9", "1",
"7", "3", "1", "9".
of the sounds are on 2-4-6 line of consciousness.
These are the first "K", and "T", and the second

is the cipher of the second ray and the embodiment of the dual energy
of Love. Within
the "word of power" this highly symbolical series of the
four digit "2's", forms a separate quaternary composed
of two duads. The series of four "2's" connote that the
whole evolutionary scheme is based upon a series of ascensions.
That are the result of the process, of the dual technique or method
of invocation by the" lesser" individual and the evocation
of that which is "greater", more inclusive and more enlightened.
The note of Love
is the dominant note of the entire threefold phrase. The Way of
the Higher Evolution has exists in two distinctive phases, as does
the Lighted Way. In the early stages of the unfoldment of the Christ
consciousness is the goal. This is consummated at he Transfiguration.
the first stage leding up until the third initiation
the initiate-disciples pass along the first part of the Path of
treading the second stage, the Way of the Higher Evolution, the
initiate-disciple treads the Way of Antahkarana and
the Way of the Higher Initiations with consequent expansions of
consciousness. These new levels reveal to the initiate the nature
of the soul, the scope (widespread and universal) of the divine
consciousness, and his relation to the Father, the Monad. They enable
him to become the soul, symbolized by the "8", in manifestation
to such an extent that his awareness is definitely and unalterably
that of the soul; at the fourth initiation the soul-body, the causal
vehicle, is no longer needed, and is entirely destroyed, leaving
the initiate free to tread the Way of the Higher Evolution.
The Christ consciousness,
symbolized by the "8", manifesting in its fullness the
nature of love, the "2", permits the full expression of
love-wisdom in its dual aspects. The higher initiate demonstrates
within himself two divine aspects, thus giving "shape and substance
The dual life of
the initiate is revealed both through his Spiritual Triad and his
soul-infused personality as they unitedly prove the livingness of
the divine Love-Nature. As this revelation takes hold of the initiate's
consciousness it initiates him into that mysterious area of the
divine consciousness which we call the "Heart of God";
this is our planetary correspondence to the "Heart of the Sun."
The heart of God,
i.e., of our planetary Logos, and the heart of the Sun, i.e., the
solar Logos, are mysteriously related, and it is through this sustained
relation that it becomes possible for human beings to enter the
Hierarchy, symbolized by the "8", the expression of the
energy of love, the "2".
The idea of duality,
the "2", ever enters into the initiate mental perception:
1. The awareness
of the lighted area from which one comes to the point of tension
or of initiation.
2. A discovery
of a new and more brilliantly lighted area into which one may
now enter.It is the recognition of the successive series of "lighted
recognitions" upon the Lighted Way that is signified.
The initiate enters
into a series of sequential recognition of light of love; this light
permeates his nature and enables him to contact and see the hitherto
unseen, and on the basis of the newly acquired knowledge to direct
his steps still further. What is indicated is a constant fusion
of the lights, progressively entered, thus enabling the initiate
to see further, deeper and more inclusively. The initiate life of
dual activity is based, at any moment of endeavor, upon what he
can fuse and blend of this sum total of his achieved development.
The potency of his
thinking along these dual lines will automatically produce the point
of tension, through the medium of the fusion of the appropriate
dualities. It is through the activity established between higher
and lower mind that fusion with the Spiritual Triad becomes possible,
with points of tension arising at many points along the bridge,
the antahkarana; it is through the activity of pure reason that
fusion with the Hierarchy, the "8", becomes possible,
and it is that which produces those points of tension which we call
Initiations. Light may enter your mind in this connection if you
will constantly bear in mind the essential duality of manifestation
itself; the negative and the positive poles present within the consciousness
of every form.
The achieved point
of fusion (the result of active and positive work and effort) is
rendered negative to that which is being invoked, and by this means
another and positive point of tension can be achieved. Initiation
connotes essentially the fusion of the negative and the positive
aspects. Owing to this, in all initiatory processes, it is the will
of the initiate which is active and which produces, first of all,
a fusion and (as a consequence) the appearance of a point of tension.
The true dualism of the divine nature becomes fully apparent and
the illusory duality disappears. Then you have Spirit-matter, Life-form.
For this the triple
experience of the unfolding consciousness is only preparatory. Through
the unfolding consciousness, the initiate knows the significance
of life and the uses of form, but stands completely unidentified
with either, though blending these dualities in himself into a conscious
This makes the
link between the lower and the higher minds, between spirit and
matter and between Monad and personality a definite and existent
fact. Duality then supervenes upon triplicity, and the potency of
the central nucleus in the egoic vehicle destroys - at the fourth
initiation - the three surrounding expressions. They disappear,
and then the so-called destruction of the causal body has taken
place. This is the true "second death" - death to form
of the sounds on the 1st ray line (3+9+1+7+3+1+9=33=6) - is "33",
or (3+3=6) "6". These are the sounds that implement,
organize, synthesize and anchor the creative energies into ceremonial
manifestation grounding them on earth.
numbers reduce to the "6", and represent the antahkarana
that connects the threefold monad, the first "3", with
the threefold personality, the second "3".
upon the Path of Discipleship, the antahkarana is the bridge between
the personality in its three aspects and the monad and its three
aspects. It is the product of the united effort of soul and personality,
working together consciously to produce this bridge. When it is
completed, there is a perfect rapport between the monad and its
physical plane expression, the initiate in the outer world.
numbers "3", and "6", also signify the three
major threads of the antahkarana, which are in reality six, if the
creative thread is differentiated into its component parts.
The three dual threads embody past and present experience and are
so recognized by the initiate.
The revelation accorded
to the 1st ray initiate through the use of the 1st ray "word
of power" is in reality, related to his identification with
God Immanent, to God in form, to God in the human heart, and to
that veiled and hidden supreme Reality which inspires all existence
and which is for ever "Consciousness" aware of itself.
The initiate has
progressed into the penetration first into the Mind of God, then
into the Heart of God, and lastly into the Purpose of Sanat Kumura.
This attainment lifts the initiate into ever widening spheres of
"lighted consciousness," and this makes him " one
of the Agents of the Light." The lighted areas of being which
otherwise remain unknown, and therefore hidden are known.
The advanced initiate
of the 1st ray creates light; he employs light; he has discovered
the greater lights which serve to reveal the Purpose of Sanat Kumura.
He has found the guiding light of universal mind within that reveals
those brighter lights which usher in the process of 1st ray revelation.
value of the word of power of the 1st ray is "41".
does this connote in the mind of the initiate?
It connotes that
the initiate recognizes "the four that constitute the One."
In other words, the quaternary that he must know and know well is
that which he is essentially himself:
1. Physical body,
astral nature, mind and soul.
2. Soul, mind, brain and the outer world of forces.
3. Spirit, soul and body within the great Whole.
real spiritual attainment and the capacity, therefore, to function
as a soul. Until this has been achieved, one cannot meditate effectively
on the words of power.
Second, he must
recognize "the city that stands foursquare." He must understand
the meaning, of "man, the cube", and this in three ways:
1. Himself as
a human being.
2. His fellow man in relation to himself and the Whole.
3. The fourth kingdom in nature, the human kingdom, viewing that
entire kingdom as an entity, an organized life functioning on
the physical plane, indwelt by soul, animated by spirit.
consequently, with these four, "4", added to the first
one, the '1", spiritual attainment, five of the qualifications
of the white magician.
There is also a
direct connection between the four stages of the Path of Return:
a. The stage
of evolution itself.
b. The stage
of the Probationary Path.
c. The stage
of the Path of Discipleship
d. The stage
of the Path of Initiation. Yet it is one, the "1", and
the same entity which participates in and is responsible for all
the differentiated aspects, steps and stages - experimenting,
experiencing and expressing consciously in every one of these
stages or modes of life, until the fourth initiation.
itself gives place to life, and yet remains itself. To the above
statement, add the fact that it is the fourth kingdom in nature
which undergoes all that is indicated above and is conditioned by
the four aspects of the one sutratma - (4+1=5). Once this is grasped,
the beauty of the symbolism and the numerological relationships
Man then indeed
becomes the Cross. When, however, he succeeds in constructing the
rainbow bridge then finally the Cross gives place to the line. This
takes place after the fourth initiation - that of the Crucifixion.
There remains then only the vertical line "reaching from Heaven
also refers to a higher quaternary dealt with in symbolism here:
1. The Monad.
2. The Soul relates
the initiate to the Love of God, to the consciousness aspect of
Deity, to the Hierarchy as a whole, entering it through the Ashram
of the Master Who has aided him to take initiation.
3. The Personality
relates the initiate to the Mind of God, to the intelligence principle
of the planetary Life, to humanity as a whole.
4. The Life aspect
of the planet, or that great ocean of forces in which all these
three aspects live and move and have their being, relates the
initiate to that Life which works out through Shamballa, through
the Hierarchy and through Humanity, thus forming part of the great
sumtotal of manifestation.
"41" connotes in the initiate's mind the 2nd sub-plane
of the 2nd or Monadic plane from out of the 49 total planes.
This is highly symbolic and significant to note.
The 41st plane corresponds
to the indigo subray of the indigo Ray and this forms the path of
least resistance from the heart of densest matter back again to
The true indigo
is the blue of the vault of heaven and it is the culmination, and
at the attainment of the initiate of synthesis,. Hence the color
indigo corresponds to what the sky nightly proclaims. Indigo absorbs.
The synthetic ray
is indigo, or a deep blue. It is the Ray of Love and Wisdom, the
great fundamental ray of this present solar system, and is one of
the cosmic rays.
"41" corresponds to the plane of Indigo-indigo,
the second sub-ray of Love and Wisdom and finds its great expression
on the second monadic plane, and its major manifestation in the
monads of love.
The majority of
the Monads in our solar system are on the second sub-plane and they
are the Monads of love. The anupadaka or monadic plane is the plane
of the (son), the 2nd ether, electric light and the akasha. It is
vital to realize that it is on the 41st sub-plane - second sub-plane
of the monadic plane - that the majority of the Monads have their
There is a direct
channel, as we know, between the atomic sub-plane on each plane.
This is true of each sub-plane and its corresponding higher sub-plane
numerically, and there is, therefore, a direct and quite expansive
channel between the second sub-plane on all planes, enabling the
Monads of love to link up with peculiar facility with all their
vehicles when composed of second sub-plane matter.
the causal body is found on the second subplane of the mental plane,
and monadic control then commences. The Monads of love return (after
life in the three worlds and the attainment of the goal) to their
originating second sub-plane. The Synthetic Ray which blends them
all is the great Love-Wisdom Ray, for "God is Love."
The seven Rays
are likewise but the seven sub-rays of the 2nd cosmic Ray. The 2nd
Ray is the indigo Ray, and is the blending Ray. It is the one which
will, at the end of the greater cycle, absorb the others in the
achievement of synthetic perfection. It is the manifestation of
the second aspect of Logoic life. It is this aspect, that of the
Form-Builder, that makes this solar system of ours the most concrete
of the three major systems.
The Love or Wisdom
aspect demonstrates through the building of the form, for "God
is Love," and in that God of Love we "live and move and
have our being," and will to the end of manvantaric manifestation.
Love was the source, love is the goal, and love the method of attainment.
But specially note,
that on this planet the Lord of Love and Power, the first Kumara,
is the focal point for all three departments. He is the One Initiator,
and whether the initiate works on the line of power, or on the line
of love, or on the line of intelligence, he must finally find his
goal on the synthetic Indigo Ray of Love and Wisdom. He must be
love, and manifest it forth, but it may be love working through
power, it may be love in harmony, or love working through knowledge,
through ceremonial or devotion, or it may be just pure love and
wisdom, blending all the others.
it is vitally significant to note that Shamballa exists in the matter
of the second physical ether, the focal point for the energy of
the Lord of the World, the distributor of the love and wisdom of
It is true therefore
that Shamballa is primarily second ray as it is expressed, because
that is the ray of the present solar system of which Shamballa is
a part; and that the first ray, or its dynamic life aspect, is focused
in the heart, for the heart is the center of life. (As Electric
Fire is Cosmic Buddhi, found at the heart of every 'atom'.)
The symbolism of
the "5" is also connected with the occult truth that evolution
is fivefold of man and in this solar system, the two remaining rounds
in any planetary cycle, in those cycles are always synthetic; their
function is to gather up and synthesize that which has been achieved
in the earlier five.
The analogy 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. When he asserts his divine prerogative
to say UKRTAPKLSTI or "I assert the fact", these ideas
and many others are evoked by the 11 sounds of the three words that
produce the "41" or "5", in the mind of the
This WORD, if carefully
considered and studied for a number of years, will become the key
means of which the purpose of Sanat Kumura and major aspects of
His creative process come to the mind of the initiate, plus revelation
as to the "divine objectives", which are wider and of
greater and richer implication than has yet been realized.
of the "11", sounds of UKRTAPKLSTI are not easy to grasp
and interpret, because it is only the activity of the higher mind
and the spiritual intuition which enables the initiate to understand
and move forward into the new impulsive monadic arena .
Let me now continue
with an analysis of the anglo saxon translation of the 1st Ray Word.
I will also contrast and compare its numerological meaning and significances
with its ancient senza counterpart.
ASSERT THE FACT"
+ 1+1+1+5+9+2 + 2+8+5 + 6+1+3+2 = 55 = 10 = 1
The tonal value
of the 1st ray word is, fittingly enough, the sacred number of the
1st ray itself, the "Perfect 10", or the "1".
signifies the fact that the 1st ray disciple rests back upon his
divine prerogative of assertion. It is the technique of Shamballa
itself and the established right, prerogative and privilege of all
first ray souls.
The 1st Ray Word
is composed of 14 sounds which brings to mind the idea of the completed
dual septenate, the (2x7=14) of a completed cycle.
relates the anglo saxon word to its senza counterpart. In the relationship
of the "5", to the "10", lies hid the meaning.
The initiate understands
the nature of the soul, symbolized by the "5", the scope
(widespread and universal) of the divine consciousness, and his
relation to the Father, the Monad, the "10". This entails
the bringing through of pure divine will and the relating of the
spiritual Hierarchy to the great Council at Shamballa.
It will be apparent
to you - from stage to stage - the task is the complete revelation
of humanity to the Hierarchy and of the Hierarchy to Shamballa accomplished
by virtue of a completely finished and constructed antahkarana.
Just as the Cosmic Monad is the
sumtotal of all the three aspects, and of the seven principles of
of the OAWNMBS, so is the cosmic Head center a replica of this,
and has within its sphere of influence seven other Master head centers
with itself for synthesis.
These seven Rish/star centers are
likewise divided into the three major and the four minor centers.
First Ray Rishi MARICHI is the positioned at the FIRST star in the
TRIAD of three handle stars of the Sapta Rishi. Just fainter than
the 5th Ray Rishi KRATHU, the front square star of the Sapta Rishi,
the second magnitude star of MARICHI is the second brightest star
in the constellation.
Al Biruni gives the name of the
first Rishi as Marichi "A ray of light." one of the Seven
Rishis of India, sons of Brahma. Marichi was father of Surya, the
Sun. Marichi is the chief of the Marutas. The Marutas are armed
with lightnings and thunderbolts, and ride on the whirlwind and
direct the storm; all very fitting first ray symbolism as we shall
shortly discover and more.
First ray rishi MARICHI is, in direct
correspondence with the first ray, exactly 100 light years away.
With a surface temperature of about 20,000 degrees Kelvin, is one
of the hotter stars that can be seen with the naked eye, and therefore
glows to us a soft blue-white. With a surface temperature of about
20,000 degrees Kelvin, is one of the hotter stars that can be seen
with the naked eye, and therefore glows to us a soft blue-white.
Like the Sun, it is a "main-sequence" star that shines
by fusing hydrogen into helium in its core. However its mass of
six times that of the Sun renders it both hotter and over 700 times
more luminous. Were Rishi star MARICHI our Sun, we would have to
be 25 times farther away to survive, almost to the orbit of Neptune.
This 1st ray extra-cosmic head center
within the head center of the OAWNMBS is just below the temperature
limit at which stars produce strong X-rays as a result of shock
waves in their winds, and is therefore only a weak source of X-rays.
I would also like to remind you of the occult fact that the cosmic
Head center in the Head, is the positive pole to all the other six
M A R I C
4 + 1 + 9
+ 9 + 3 + 8 + 9 = (4+3) = 7
Rishi MARICHI's name is composed
of seven sounds that equal the sacred "7" of the SEVEN
RISHIS of the SAPTA RISHI.
Note how the seven key sounds of
the 1st ray Lord's name numerical construction replicates that of
the Great Bear with its the 3 primary triad or handle stars and
the 4 minor square stars), as the [AN] value of MARICHI 43 which
reduces to 4+3=7. This sequence of numbers are the ARCHETYPICAL
"Sacred Numbers" according to H.P.B., of LIFE, LIGHT AND
UNION in this our special MAHAMANVANTARA.
The master Rishi of the cosmic Head
Center itself, has, in His name, replicated the prototypical construction
of the cosmic Head center and the Sapta Rishi Himself.
