The Great Masters: An Esoteric History

Point out of the Nice Masters, additionally known as the Nice White Brotherhood, evokes photos of extremely advanced beings, visiting the Earth to assist man in his struggling makes an attempt to understand his non secular nature.

We’re very lucky to have a council of Grasp’s who dedicate their energies to monitoring our progress and personally intervening with people and world occasions at occasions of want.

The Brotherhood goes by many names and is chronicled by such numerous authors as Alice Bailey (referring to them because the seven Kumaras), Baird Spalding (calling them the White Brotherhood and the Thirteenth Faculty); Dane Rudhyar (the seven Avatars); Omraam M. Aivanhov (the Common White Brotherhood); Madame Blavatsky (the Dhyan Chohans, Nice White Lodge); and naturally, the traditional authors of the Rig Veda who referred to them because the seven Sapta Rishis (academics). Gurdjieff additionally makes oblique references to the Brotherhood.

Questions are sometimes raised as as to if there’s a racial bias within the time period, the Nice White Brotherhood. This concern is effectively addressed by Frater Achad: “…reference to the phrase ‘white’ has nothing to do with the colour of the pores and skin or to any race. It does point out the radiance of the non secular shade of the soul (its aura)…. The Divine wears many coloured our bodies.”

As we discover the Brotherhood, sure writers stand out. The accounts that comply with start historical Asian texts and proceed by means of more moderen authors.

Right here they’re known as the seven Sapta Rishis, who’re mentioned to information mankind from the interior worlds. It’s mentioned that these Rishis have been the primary disciples of Shiva, the Adi (first) yogi.

(They) are seven, of whom 5 solely have hitherto manifested (Sinnett’s Esoteric Buddhism), and two are to return within the sixth and seventh root-races.” Via her in depth analysis, Blavatsky factors out that the divine “seven” have been expressed in some method in all traditional world religions.

Baird Spalding, Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East, 1924, 1948: Spalding is maybe one of the vital revered documenters of the Nice White Brotherhood. Quantity I describes the creator’s private experiences with a number of Masters of the Himalayas. These Masters can materialize at will, talk by means of telepathy, and exhibit a number of the most saintly habits ever seen. They would seem to characterize larger echelons of the White Brotherhood.

In Quantity 4 of the sequence Spalding addresses a couple of misconceptions concerning the White Brotherhood. He says that “… they by no means make themselves often known as such… As long as constructive forces work in ‘secret,’ they develop unnoticed by those that would destroy their impact. There’ll come a time, nevertheless, after they (the illumined) will work extra overtly… when there are sufficient illumined folks to know and perceive what they’re doing…. Right now of such helpless disintegration, and solely then, are the actions of the Brotherhood more likely to come out into the open to strengthen the Reality within the minds of all of the folks.”

In keeping with Gurdjieff, it was a brotherhood “which any man might enter, regardless of the faith to which he had previously belonged…Among the many adepts of this monastery there have been former Christians, Jews, Mohammedans, Buddhists, Lamaists, and even a Shamanist. All have been united by God within the Reality.” He indicated that a number of the brothers at this faculty have been 200 to 300 years previous. One of many monastery’s teachings which Gurdjieff adopted involved the significance of studying by means of experience-so that what’s discovered turns into inherent in a single’s being.

Paramahansa Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi, 1946: Yogananda didn’t communicate of the White Brotherhood per se, however spoke extensively of the avatars and the “Nice Ones.” He explains that the “descent” of Divinity into flesh ends in the presence of an avatar. Yogananda provides us a wonderful account of Babaji, a dwelling yogi and avatar of the Himalayas who “has maintained bodily kind for hundreds of years or millenniums.” Babaji teaches the potential for bodily immortality, and has promised to remain his bodily physique ceaselessly (throughout this world cycle). In keeping with Yogananda, Babaji is “ever in communion with Christ.”

He named his fellowship of scholars (10,000 worldwide) the Common White Brotherhood. Aivanhov acknowledges that, “The true Common White Brotherhood on excessive consists of all of the extremely advanced beings which have ever existed.”

Georg Feuerstein, of 1 Aivanhov’s biographers and a famous scholar of spirituality and yoga, refers back to the Common White Brotherhood as “that invisible school of upper beings who’ve the non secular evolution of humankind at coronary heart.”

S. Subramuniyaswami, The Lemurian Scrolls, 1998: Satguru Subramuniyaswami provides the Brotherhood a distinguished place in his current epic, the Lemurian Scrolls.

Subramuniyaswami explains {that a} Brotherhood of gurus has been current of Earth all through human historical past to information our evolution. He indicated that this secret order lived monasteries in previous yugas (ages), however now transfer freely concerning the world in different walks of life. “Via their nice telepathic powers, they (meet) in council most recurrently…Their function on the planet, after dissolving their monasteries on the finish of the Treta Yuga, has been to set new patterns and innovate programs.”

In keeping with Subramuniyaswami, “The rishis are to guide all of the deserving beings from this planet within the (Satya) Yuga, thus finishing their mission.”

After we see the continuity of accounts of the Rishis, the White Brotherhood, the Nice Masters, we will not assist however really feel grateful for his or her dedication to serving to us in our makes an attempt to develop towards the Divinity from which we got here and to which we’re evolving. I consider that the Brotherhood is as lively as we speak as ever, perhaps particularly as we speak, because the Earth and its peoples are confronting seemingly unprecedented challenges.

In my experiences with Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, a yogi grasp from Southern India who has visited the US in recent times, I’ve noticed that he at all times concludes his program with a heartfelt expression of gratitude to “the Masters” who’ve guided us. When one views the depth of Sadhguru’s dedication and his accomplishments in his lifetime up to now, it seems very believable that he works immediately with these beings.

I clearly consider that the Masters are with us as we speak and love us dearly, and that they and their designees are right here for us at any time when we name on them for non secular assist and path.
