Path of the Bodhisattva 04 Bodhichitta in Christianity.mp3
Bodhichitta as represented by John the Baptist in Christianity. The importance and role of Bodhichitta for "making straight the way [or incarnation] of the Lord." Lecture relates to the Sephirah Yesod.
"...to have the mind of the Lord is to have the Bodhichitta, which in the Bible is symbolized by Elijah or ELIAO in Hebrew. We are not going to explain about Elijah or the prophet Eliao himself, but we are going to explain Elijah directly related to our psyche. Every personage that you find - whether in Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, etc. - is always a symbol; even though the personage existed, understand that they symbolize something within our psyche, within our true selves. This is precisely the point when examining the Gospels. Elijah the Prophet symbolizes the forces of the solar energy that we have to manage. Remember that in Greek, Elijah, Eliao, is Elios (Helios), the Sun, the solar force. So here, when we refer to Elijah or Eliao, we are referring to Helios the sun, which is not a person. We are referring directly to the solar energy that we have to learn how to handle and manage in our body. If I am emphasizing Elijah or Eliao, it is because in the Gospels, as well as in the Old Testament, it is written that it is necessary for Elijah to come before the Messiah. The Messiah is the Bodhisattva and Elijah is the Bodhichitta. Elijah represents the completely developed solar mind, that solar mind which is utilized by the Spirit.
The lectures are also playing continuously on Gnostic Radio:
"The powers of the masters emanate from their purity of life and the merits of their hearts."
