The second Alchemical element, the externalisation of astral substance, that of the sixth sphere.
A religious festival commemorating the parinirvana of the Buddha. It is held on the first (Taurean) full Moon in May throughout the Buddhist world and increasingly so in the West. It is one of the most important such occasions in the spiritual calendar, for on this day the Buddha reappears to our Earth and externalises His Energies upon the mental plane, to be absorbed and rightly distributed by the Hierarchy of Love to all. He is said to appear at a certain valley in the Himalayas to those (the entire conclave of the Hierarchy) that annually gather there, physically, astrally, and upon the higher spheres. The Great Invocation is a mantra that is Sounded out during this period by the Christ (the Bodhisattva) for the resuscitation of the substance of the Earth and the bringing about the aims of the mantra.
It is one of three main spiritual Festivals held by the Hierarchy of Light, the other two are the Festival of Goodwill held in the full Moon of Gemini, and the Festival of Easter (the Festival of the risen Christ) held in the full Moon of Aries.
Indeed, each full Moon period is a special time of meditation and concurrence by the Hierarchy to make use of the available Energies pouring forth from the respective opened zodiacal gate.
The control of the forces of nature by means of co-operation with the greater Deva Builders, and Lords of Life. It involves travelling the right hand path, and thus the awakening of the powers latent within the chakras in right sequence and ordered development. It necessitates the grounding of all in Wisdom and Love, and obeying all the precepts and rules of training that will allow one to become a fully liberated being, a Bodhisattva, and hence a member of the great White Brotherhood, the Hierarchy of Love. See also black magic.
Practitioners of white magic, as opposed to black magicians.
The energy of the first Ray, the energy of the Father aspect.
The word “Witch” is derived from the Anglo-Saxon term wicca, “to know” and wikken “to divine”. It concerns “natural magic”, worship of the Mother Goddess, and of the forces indigenous to Nature, hence of the horned God, Pan. But this form of obtaining Wisdom or Divine knowledge has been distorted by many, degenerating its rites into forms of sex-magic. Most (or could I say all) modern day “witchcraft” really concern forms of black or left hand magical practices, even of those who consider themselves “white”. Their psychism, magical incantations, emanations and methods, generally evoke grey pranas or are used by black Sorcerers for their own ends.
Look at the motives of the practicing “witches”, there is very little altruism or Love developed. Whenever there are magical practices that are basically utilised to serve the self, the obtaining of power or dominance over elementary lives for any self-willed purpose, then you have black magic in practice. Many who are converted to witchcraft are lured by the “glamour of Mystery”, by sex magic, and the lure of quick development of basic psychic powers, all of which assist the schemes of the dark brotherhood. Be not deceived, all forms of teachings that offer rapid development of psychic powers, and that focus upon the lower psyche, lead eventually to the dark path; all shades of grey are but aspects of the left hand path.
A beast of prey of the dog family. The “wolf” is the traditional nemesis of the “good shepherd”, for he preys on the “sheep” that are under his care. Hence, the Wolf symbolises the adepted members of the dark brotherhood, the Sorcerers.
