Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter VIII - Access to the Masters via Meditation
During the period wherein a man is an accepted disciple the work done by the Master is of very real interest. The pupil is assigned to special classes conducted by more advanced disciples under the supervision of the Master, and though he may attend still the larger general classes in the Ashram (the Master's hall for teaching) he is subjected to a more intensified training... The Master works in the earlier stages in four main ways:
  1. At intervals, and when the progress of the pupil justifies it, He "gathers the pupil to His Heart." This is an esoteric statement of a very interesting experience to which the pupil will be subjected. At the close of some class in the ashram, or during some specially successful meditation wherein the pupil has reached a certain rate of vibration, the Master will gather him close to Himself, bringing him from the periphery of His aura to the center of His consciousness. He thereby gives him a tremendous temporary expansion of consciousness, and enables him to vibrate at an unusual rate for him.
    Hence the need for meditation. The reward of such an experience far outweighs any of the strenuous parts of the work.
  2. The Master works upon the bodies of his pupil with color, and brings about results in those bodies that enable the pupil to make more rapid progress. Now you will see why... so much emphasis is laid upon color. It is not only because it holds the secret of form and manifestation (which secret must be known by the occultist) but the emphasis is laid thus in order that he may consciously cooperate in the work of the [280] Master on his bodies, and intelligently follow the effects brought about. Ponder on this.
  3. At stated intervals the Master takes His pupils, and enables them to contact other evolutions, such as the great angels and devas, the lesser builders and the subhuman evolutions. This can be safely done by the pupil through the protective effect of the Master's aura. Later, when himself an initiate, the pupil will be taught how to protect himself and to make his own contacts.
  4. The Master presides over the work of stimulating the centers in the pupil's bodies and the awakening of the inner fire. He teaches the pupil the meaning of the centers and their correct fourth dimensional rotation and in time He will bring the pupil to a point where he can consciously and with full knowledge of the law work with his centers, and bring them to a point where they can be safely stimulated by the Rod of Initiation. More on this subject is not yet possible...

I have only touched in the briefest manner on a few of the things a Master has to do with His pupils. I take not up the later stages of the pupil's progress. We lead all on by gradual steps, and as yet even accepted disciples are rare. If by meditation, service, and the purifying of the bodies, those now on probation can be led to make more rapid progress, then will come the time for the communication of further information. What use is it to give facts of which the student cannot as yet make use? We waste not time in interesting intellectually those we seek to help. When the pupil has equipped himself, when he has purified himself and is vibrating adequately, naught can withhold all knowledge from him. When he opens the [281] door and widens the channel, light and knowledge will pour in.

Tomorrow we will take up our third point, methods of approach to a Master via meditation; certain types of meditation will be slightly enlarged upon which will facilitate contact, but forget not that the life of objective service must keep pace with the subjective growth; only when the two are seen together and approved are the necessary steps for contact permitted. A Master is only interested in a man from the point of view of his usefulness in the group soul, and his capacity to help.
