the place to receive the disciples. And all of the functions of
the seven rays fulfilled in that home of light can be fulfilled
in your own home of light and in your own teaching center—a
place for nourishment and rest for the Master and the disciples,
for the recharging of the life of Jesus as you live that life.
"Where would the Master have gone had there
not been a home consecrated by the flame of consecration, the
flame of constancy? It was a place for the dissemination of the
teaching, a place for the Holy Spirit and for the family life,
the place from which Jesus walked to Bethany’s hill in the
hour of his ascension, the place for truth, the place for the
discipline of the disciples in the ray of truth and for their
commissioning to go forth empowered in the Word in their ministration
and service, the place for the ritual of the anointing of the
Lord’s body, the place for the contact of the Guru and the

rays and finally for the integration of the eighth ray of the

must be prepared on earth for the masters, for their coming, and
for the disciples attending their coming.
"As each home of light resembles more and
more the etheric retreats of the Brotherhood, so there is the
meeting of heaven and earth and there is the open door to the
path of the ascension whereby worlds are transcended and the soul
that is born in Matter is born again in Spirit. Thus prepare the

" . . . I desire to make known to you and to develop a certain
concept that has been touched upon. And it is this: that in the
transferring of the forcefields of the cities and of the nations,
you may therefore keep the flame for those areas of your former
service and of your present karma here at the Inner Retreat. It
is our desire.
" . . . You see, our university of the Spirit
has many branches, even as the colleges and universities in the
world today. And some have entirely separate campuses for their
areas of concentration and development. Therefore, in each of
the branches of the pursuit of life and the unfoldment of the
seven rays in the consciousness of the new race, we may so dedicate
not only the center but its architecture, its discipline, the
inclination of its devotees to one of the major points of past
and present attainment.
"Therefore, when and if it should
become necessary to withdraw other teaching centers of other cities
and to reproduce their function and their service and even to
call their members to this place, let it be with the full understanding
that we expect the focuses of the chakras of the earth, such as
that of Washington, D.C., and its mighty citadel of God-government,
to be represented here in all levels—in the levels of the
mind and in the levels of the soul, in learning, in understanding,
and in keeping the flame to which that city or center has long
been dedicated by the Great White Brotherhood.
"We envision this place, as Serapis
alluded to, as the point to which many devotees bring the flame
which they have kept. Inasmuch as each of you is a Keeper of the
Flame, you ought to examine that which has been and is of worth
in your mastery, service, profession, and sacred labor wherever
"What are your roots? What is the
origin of your heritage and culture? What will you bear in your
hand as sacred labor, as the carpenter of Nazareth?
"You have yet time to perfect a skill,
to assemble the research for your library—to realize that
when you come here you cannot simply go down the street to the
New York Public Library or the museum of Los Angeles to find some
missing piece of information and research or a point of artwork
that you may need. And therefore, it is a time to collect things,
and it is a time to take other things to those sales where you
may unburden yourself of such articles and objects and books that
have no intrinsic worth and no need of preservation.
" . . . I was with the messenger as she
gave to Summit University some of the old teachings of Nicholas
Roerich, who was inspired by me and El Morya to contemplate the
museum of art and the Roerich Peace Pact. He worked with us for
peace and understanding of the nations and also to preserve the
art treasures of ancient Tibet and the works of his own hand inspired
"Thus, as impractical as it may seem, the thought form for
a museum of the treasures of the world's great spiritual art,
as well as the pragmatic art of Western and Eastern civilization,
is already in the ethers.
"Some of the objects that are in
the collection of the Vicar of Christ in this organization, such
as statues of Buddhas and delicate china of Czechoslovakia and
so forth, that have been brought by devotees, are shrines in themselves,
fully capable of carrying a flame. They ought not to be anywhere
but in this museum of the Spirit where, as you pause before each
focus, you contact a spirit of art, the causal body of masters
of bygone years. And that meditation, which may become a decree
spoken aloud before that particular object and display, serves
for the training of the eye of children, for their education,
and for their souls' drawing forth of the next step in the creation
of art itself or science or whatever subject matter leads the
soul to a new definition in the field of knowledge.
"Without the building blocks of past
civilizations, how can the new be born? Earth is not a vacuum
and we are not in its pristine state. Earth is old by comparison
and, beloved hearts, the collective evolution and knowledge, the
beauty, the learning ought not to be lost.
"Why, beloved hearts, if it were
left to the people of this state alone, very little of the world's
heritage would be preserved here, except perhaps in those centers
of learning where many have come from other parts. And therefore,
you can see that there can develop in a people a certain satisfaction
with their environment and a simple daily life devoid of an accelerating
"Thus, we are lovers of culture.
And in all of our ancient monasteries we have sought to preserve
that cultivation of light through the seven chakras and the five
secret rays. Many souls will be born here who have built a mighty
foundation already. They deserve to have access to, even in their
younger years, those very things, traditions, and assemblies of
knowledge which they themselves have builded. Thus, only if they
can contact these things as school-children can they rise in the
true genius of inventiveness and carry the age a step forward."

A Portrait of Maitreya as the Hemp-Bag Bonze
Another portrait of Maitreya, which took
shape in China in the tenth century, is that of the plump, jolly,
pot-bellied Laughing Buddha who is known as the Hemp-bag Bonze.
A “bonze” is a Buddhist monk.
This endearing figure is often depicted sitting
and holding a sack, with happy children climbing all over him.
Some Buddhists say that the children Maitreya is playing with
represent arhats (adepts, perfected saints). Statues of the Laughing
Buddha can be found in most temples in Taiwan and have made a
comeback in mainland China. He is usually the first image one
sees inside Chinese Buddhist temples, his smiling visage greeting
all who enter. Tour guides in China explain that Maitreya manifests
in this unhandsome form so that people will concentrate on his
teaching rather than upon the beauty of his being as portrayed
in earlier Buddhist art.
Scholar Kenneth Ch’en says that the Hemp-bag
Bonze is mentioned in “a number of works in the Chinese
canon, where he is always described as having a wrinkled forehead
and a protruding belly left uncovered.” He is said to have
been a native of Chekiang province who was well liked because
of his jovial nature and uncanny ability to predict the weather.
When he was seen wearing wet sandals and scurrying
for shelter, rain was expected; but when he slept on the market
bridge in a squatting posture, his head resting on his knees,
then good weather was expected. One feature of his appearance
singled him out—he carried a hemp bag wherever he went.
Into this bag was deposited whatever he received, and for this
reason the bag became an object of intense curiosity, especially
among the children. They would chase him and climb all over him,
and force him to open his bag. On such an occasion he would place
the bag on the ground, empty the contents one by one, and just
as methodically put them back into the bag.
The expressions attributed to him were all enigmatic
and exhibit [Zen] characteristics . . . Once a monk asked him
about his bag; he replied by placing it on the ground. When asked
what this meant, he shouldered the bag and went away. Once he
was asked how old the bag was, and he replied that it was as old
This bag demonstrates the mystery of space and
the miracle of space under the dominion of the Buddha. Its timelessness
shows the Buddha’s mastery of segments of eternity, hence
eternity itself, through the flame of Mother.
Because of his popularity the people were only
too willing to believe the stories that he never died. All such
stories pointed to the prediction that he was the Future Buddha
in the flesh. Once people were amazed when they found him lying
in the snow, unaffected by it. On another occasion a friend found
him bathing in the river, and discovered that he possessed the
third or wisdom eye on his back. Surprised by this, the friend
exclaimed, “You are a Buddha!” whereupon the Hemp-bag
Bonze silenced him and warned, “Do not tell anyone.”
. . .
The following couplet, seen . . . in Hopei, is probably the most
apt description of him:
“The big belly is capable to contain, it
contains all the
things under Heaven which are difficult to contain.
The broad face is inclined to laugh, to laugh at the
laughable men on earth.”
In this potbellied figure one is able to see
the representation of a number of Chinese life-ideals. The huge
protruding stomach and the hemp bag denote prosperity and a wealth
of material goods, for only a rich person would have enough to
eat and be fat. The reclining figure is indicative of the spiritual
contentment and relaxation of one who is at peace with himself
and the world. Finally, the large number of children usually surrounding
him are illustrative of another Chinese virtue—a large family
consisting of many children. When these features are combined
with the genial appearance of the figure, as if he were full of
mirth and friendship, then it is easily understood why he has
been so enthusiastically received by the Chinese. When the
Chinese look at him, they see not just a Buddhist deity but also
a good representation of many of the things after which they aspire.
Author M. Conrad Hyers has some additional insights
into the character of what he terms this “incognito appearance
of Maitreya.” He writes:
According to legend [he] refused the designation
of Zen master, as well as monastic restriction, and instead walked
the streets with his sack over his shoulder . . . Sometimes,
in fact, he is pictured sitting inside his sack (his only home)
peering impishly out . . . Like an Oriental Santa Claus, he was
the merry sage with a twinkle in his eye who had rediscovered
the wisdom and freedom and laughter of little children. Whenever
he met a fellow Zen devotee, he is reputed to have extended his
hand, saying in childish fashion, “Give me a penny.”
Or if anyone would suggest that he return to a temple or monastery,
or more formally instruct others in the Zen path, he would again
reply, with an air of innocence, “Give me a penny.”
[The Laughing Buddha] represents, therefore, the Zen goal of recovering
on a higher plane the spontaneity and naturalness and playfulness
. . . of the child . . . [He] symbolises the wisdom of children.
He is not a little like the commonly ignored image of Jesus who
pauses to play with the children, despite his disciples’
dismay, or who sets a little child in the midst of his all-too-earnest
followers with the declaration: “Unless you turn and become
like children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
"One of the wisest masters of old, Sri Magra, once said: 'Affinities
are the fine ties that are established in the perfect balance of
the heart where the natural affections are enhanced by the feeling
of delight in givingness as well as in a gracious state of receptivity.'
Let souls be drawn together according to their highest good."
"Understanding Yourself," XII
"Thus, we are in the heart of the Ashram, for is not the
Ashram the nucleus of all energy systems? Aye, indeed it is!
" . . . The Ashram is ever present. It is a world order.
There are many members outside of this Community who are my chelas.
They uphold the Ashramic consciousness; and the antahkarana has
been abuilding for thirty, forty years and more. For the understanding
of the Ashram as the house of Light, the dwelling place of the
Guru and the chela, gives comfort to all. It is the comfort flame
midst the storm. It is the light in the cabin window that is seen
afar off by the traveler through the night storm.
"The Ashram is the haven. It is the resting
place. It is the special place that, wherever you find it, is
the same as every other such place. Surcease from the struggle,
entering in for the recharge, brothers and sisters of one mind
and heart and purpose meeting here and there along life’s
way in our secluded outposts—such is the vision of the Ashram
that I hold and that does exist.
"Therefore you, too, have been nestled in
that place, which many have prepared by the stretching of the
antahkarana of a cosmos. Feel now the thread of this antahkarana
pass through your heart. It is truly a thread of Light. And therefore,
if you will tremble the thread by using at least one of the meditations
daily (and there are indeed short ones that no one should find
excuse to neglect), then you see, you will always be a part of
the antahkarana. You will always be able to hear with the inner
ear and hear with the heart what is the situation of all servitors
of the will of God of a cosmos.
"You stand to benefit much from this association;
for admittedly many are beyond your attainment, some the unascended
adepts, others Ascended Masters and Cosmic Beings. And therefore,
you may deliver to those of lesser attainment their momentum even
while you yourselves are strengthened by that impetus from above.
"Indeed the Ashram is an impulse. It is
an impulse to love and to fulfill the commands of Christ Jesus.
We are worshipers of the universal manifestation of the Christ.
Yet we are here to fulfill the words of the Saviour Jesus Christ,
who is Lord and must be seen as Lord by those who would enter
the heart of God’s will and receive the strength to fulfill
it; for without Christ ye cannot.
"Shorn lambs, yes, karma-bearers, yes, and
those who have vested no small amount of energy in other causes
that are not of God’s will. Therefore, until all of these
strands be withdrawn from an investment unwise, you see, you require
the intercessor in order to do the will of God. The intercessor
is indeed the mantram, is indeed the meditation, is indeed the
ritual! For I and my Father are one.
"And, lo, Christ will whisper to you, “I
AM the Word and my Word is manifest in you as you allow that Word
to resound through you.” And so as you do, beloved, first
you become the manifestation of the words of Christ, and then,
beloved, millions of words clustered together in a diamond heart
become the chalice for the Word itself. And one day you will know:
" . . . Thus, the Ashram is indeed a means
to an end, and that end is total identification with the Word
of God. It is the strengthening of hearts that we seek, and ritual
has evermore been the means to that end. The ritual itself does
increase the capacity of the individual to hold mighty currents
of energy. As the capacity does increase, you are transformed.
Rituals are self-transforming.
" . . . Now understand how the Word of Jesus
Christ does live forever beyond heaven and earth. For it is beyond
these octaves that the Word goes coursing on its way, nourishing
Life and holding the balance of the universal Ashram of the devotees
of the will of God.
"Blessed ones, all who have any level of
attainment whatsoever must be devotees of the will of God. Thus,
you begin to see the magnitude of our Ashram, that the entire
Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood is a part of the antahkarana
that you enter when with regular rhythmic cycle you recite our
"In the beginning was the Word, indeed.
And in the ending is the Word as the Work of the Lord. And in
the middle is the Word. And everywhere is the Word!
"Now then, beloved, I assure you that it
would please me highly if you should seek out and find those souls
of Light of a similar wavelength to your own to bring them the
message of the universal Ashram of the Light of God’s holy
will, that they might understand that by a little entering in
and a little joy in the vibrations that pour through the worded
release of our meditations, they might find the true communion
of saints and oneness with all who have ever loved the will of
" . . . Now in the heart of the Mystery
School I AM come. The thread of the antahkarana of the Ashram
I have passed through your heart. Now I make this offer to you
to establish a focus of the Ashram by giving the rituals and seeking
to expand the circle of your meditation, inviting those who will
come and those who would enter in.
"If you establish
this forcefield, even if you are alone in your home, if you establish
a weekly routine of daily meditations and keep it, I, Morya, Lord
of the First Ray, will sustain for you the matrix of the Ashram
where you are. If possible, consecrate a place where you give
your rituals and keep it holy. Even a little corner of a room
"Our strategy, then, and the only solution
that the Darjeeling Council can offer—which comes from the
heart of Mother Mary, with the wisdom of Jesus and Kuthumi, who
also serve here in our deliberations —is to recommend that
you isolate those issues that are most necessary to the keeping
of the peace and the freedoms, issues that concern all the people
and the fate of the nations.
" . . . whereupon you should of course decree for the will
of God to be upon the hearts of the people concerning these issues;
but above all, you should seek to educate the people and to influence
public opinion by writing your letters to the editors, to your representatives,
and by appearing, if necessary, on television and radio programs.
" . . . and then you must keep on repeating the message as
you demonstrate the workability of the God-solution in the equation
that you personally believe in and that may not be obvious to the
" . . . El Morya and I are concerned with the dates. We have
been asked by your messenger to sponsor Glastonbury North and Glastonbury
South. We accept the messenger's call, as she has asked El Morya
to preside on the side of the north as the one who represents Alpha—the
Father, the Guru, the will of God—while I on the south, representing
the seventh ray and Omega, therefore will represent the flame of
the building, of the science, of the invention.
is not to say that one side will have one thing exclusively and
the other another. But we as patrons, Thomas More and Francis
Bacon, will bring to both as one our dreams of the new order and
of the Utopia and of all things that a people working together
can do. The first ray is not complete without the seventh, nor
the seventh without the first.
"And thus, we have made only one
condition to our sponsorship, and that is that, first and foremost,
each site shall be dedicated to the Blessed Mother, Mary—to
her love, to her cathedral of Glastonbury, to her shrine, and
to her keeping the vigil for these little ones. Thus, together
we dedicate to the purpose of the Holy Family and the community
these places set aside and dedicated, through the heart of Edward
to your own heart, selflessly and therefore purely and therefore
"May you then know that we do indeed
see a future there. And as it has been said to our messenger in
these long months of her keeping the flame with the staff of the
ranch, we cannot truly move forward in light or vibration in this
area until there are set here one thousand chelas of the will
of God, both within the staff and in the Glastonbury community.
Therefore, look ahead and look to the opportunities even now being
prepared in Livingston and Bozeman.
"For, blessed hearts, to maintain
a spiritual center such as this, as large and all-comprehensive
in time and space, it does require many tall pines. And the adversity
itself, whether political or religious or through the media, will
be neutralized when one thousand devotees keep daily the watch
upon the wall of the Lord. Sometimes our staff have been bowed
down here, as fifty and less have attempted to keep the light
against the forces of the Amorites and all of those companies

" . . . Indeed there is the need for the
Community of Glastonbury, for souls to stand guard to see that
no power, political or otherwise, should in any way interfere
with the guarding of this magnet. For this forcefield, beloved
ones, though it may be a bit hard for you to comprehend, is our
designated focal point for the holding of balance of earth changes
on the entire planet.
"We have no other place so secluded,
so far away from the cities, yet so accessible and usable. We
have no other group of devotees of the numbers of this organization
so consecrated on the single wavelength of the Mighty I AM Presence,
the sacred fire, and the violet flame."

"Blessed ones, we know and we understand. Therefore, we have
set forth the plan of the Inner Retreat and the Ranch and Glastonbury
not only for your personal protection or mutual reinforcement,
but for a way of life, that you might enjoy not having to be a
part of the aggressive forces of success that are in the world
or a constant financial burden to your households or to the church.
"We desire to see you enjoy a life that
is ample yet simple, so that all of your resources, especially
those of your time and your breath, might be devoted to the decrees
on world conditions as well as the preaching of the Word.
"We are not empire builders; we are the
humble of heart whose mansions are in heaven. We desire to see
that union and reinforcement there because we know the strength
of the united call and the prayer vigil that was once kept in
Glastonbury Cathedral in the name of the Mother, which did hold,
indeed, the balance of light even as that balance was held in
Tibet, in China and in India.
"Beloved ones, we
desire to see you secure for yourselves that place in the sun
so that the balance of the world forces could be held."

"Therefore, of supreme importance is self-government within
the Community, is harmony, is education for the children that
they may early take their places of responsibility. And therefore,
parents and teachers, listen to your mentors and do not abuse
the children entrusted to your care by doing too much for them
or too little for them. There is an independent pioneer spirit
that must be nurtured, and therefore do not limit their style
of creativity. Do not draw circles around them and say, 'You may
perform only within this little circle or this little box.'
"Blessed ones, we send Lightbearers and
you must beware of those who creep in who are the seed of Darkness
and not require so long to perceive that the seed of Darkness
will destroy the Lightbearers and cannot remain.
"Therefore I raise the sword of Sanat Kumara
and I place that sword before you. This sword, then, becomes a
new standard within the Community. And the standard is equal unto
all—whatever the source, whatever the seed. Let them meet
the standard of obedience to the Lord God and the true love of
the desiring of the heart, and let them not be indulged.
" . . . The entire establishment of
the Royal Teton Ranch, including Glastonbury, is the manifestation
of holy purpose. Every man, woman, and child gathered there must
have exacted of them the same standard of individual Christhood.
For I tell you, you will face the Philistines, as you already
have; you will face the fallen ones. And the unity and the love
and the perception of Truth must be upheld. And therefore I command
the Messenger and our representative there to see to it that all
are brought to the standard of Sanat Kumara."

"Keep my flame in this community, beloved, for I have given
more of myself than you will ever know to the very presence of my
Church in this place. And it shall not be bestowed upon me that
I may start anew or begin again. With almighty God (and) all saints
of heaven who have gone before you, I say: in this community we
must not fail.
be no fragmentation or division, but know that your loyalty is
to the flame that burns upon the altar because the LORD God has
sent to you a messenger who is able, by his grace, to keep that
flame. And as you sustain your devotions the flame is kept in
this octave. It is a light unto the world, beloved, and that sacred
fire is your salvation in this octave . . . "

" . . . That bright and noble spirit, Mary Baker Eddy, who
did pioneer the science of healing in the latter part of the nineteenth
century, is one who also served Jesus together with your Messenger
at the home in Bethany. Therefore you are about to hear of lost
Teachings and secret Teachings delivered by Jesus our LORD as initiation
to Lazarus. And to this I would add, the initiations given at the
home of Bethany included those of the healing arts in a most practical
application and use, as is recorded of myrrh and aloes, other spices
and herbs, as well as the Teachings of the LORD in the high Himalayas
brought back by Jesus.
ones, you have heard us liken the teaching centers to that home
at Bethany, that home of Light where disciples might come—come
from their journeying and their pilgrimages, come to be fed and
made whole—a hospice of Light, a center of the Great White
"Devotees of Light are still looking for
that cup not only of cold water but of the elixir that will transmit
to them the sacred fire for the resurrection and regeneration
of their temples, that they might live again another day again
to serve again in the mission of the Lord Jesus, the healing mission,
and the mission of Saint Germain of alchemy and miracles. For
more than healing is required, yet healing must come.
" . . . Blessed hearts, we the archangels
have come, then, once again to remind that when the teaching centers
of this Church Universal and Triumphant are kept with the flame
of Bethany, the Masters do frequent them and their chelas are
drawn and impelled by the inner fire."
Note: At the time of Jesus, Mary Baker Eddy was embodied as Mary
of Bethany, sister of Lazarus and Martha, a prior incarnation
of the Messenger. (See Matt. 26:6-13; Mark 14:3-9; Luke 10:38-42;
John 11:1-45; 12:1-3.) Mary Baker Eddy, author of Science and
Health with Key to the Scriptures, founded the Christian Science

" . . . Receive my mantle and know that your hour is come when
you receive me bodily into your temple. Therefore, beloved hearts,
these roles must be fulfilled. As the golden scrolls descend, as
rolls of parchment, so read the handwriting of God.
"You are messengers going before the
One Sent who is the Word incarnate. You are the disciples who
go into every city and town wheresoever the Word should come.
You are the Marys and the Marthas who establish the home of Bethany
in each teaching center, in every city wheresoever I would go
through my messenger and through the Mother whose time is come.
Therefore you are the clearing of the way, even as the Mother
has cleared the way before you, even as the ascended messenger
so cleared the way before her."
