Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter VI - The Use of Form in Meditation
Forms used in one of the Three Departments

August 13th, 1920

The interest of what I have to communicate today is very great, for we have to take up the matter of the forms used in the Departments of the Manu, the World Teacher and the Mahachohan, the Lord of Civilization.

These three Departments represent in the Hierarchy the three aspects of the Logos as manifested in the solar [167] system, - the Aspect of Will or Power, the Aspect of Love and Wisdom (which is the basic aspect for this system), and the Aspect of Activity or Intelligence. You know from your studies the work undertaken by these departments.

  • The Manu manipulates matter and is occupied with the evolution of form, whether it is the dense physical form of animal, mineral, flower, human being or planet, or the form of races, nations, devas or the other evolutions.
  • The Bodhisattva or World Teacher works with the evolving life within the form, with the implanting of religious ideas and with the development of philosophical concepts both in individuals and races.
  • The Mahachohan, who synthesizes the four lower rays, deals with mind or intelligence, and, in collaboration with His Brothers, controls the evolution of mind whereby the Spirit or Self utilizes the form or the Not-Self.

The synthetic work of the three Great Lords is inconceivably great. Form - Life - Intelligence, Matter - Spirit - Mind, Prakriti - Purusha - Manas, are the three lines of development, and in their synthesis comes completeness.

Each of these three lines works through formulas, or through set forms, which by graded steps put the man who employs the form in touch with the particular line of evolution represented by the Head of that line.

...What I seek to bring out here are the three clear lines whereby a man may mount to the Logos and find union with the self of the Solar System. He can mount by the line of the Manu, he can attain through the line of the Bodhisattva, or he can reach his goal via the path of the Mahachohan. 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 [168] is the One Initiator, and whether a man 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 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. Love was the source, love is the goal, and love the method of attainment.
