Let us talk a little about the beautiful Helen. Homer says that she was Menelaus' wife. He states that she was abducted by Prince Paris, and that great warrior brought her to Troy. The truth is there was a great war that lasted 20 years. "The Iliad" says much about that war. Troy was besieged by the Greeks, "the long-haired Achaeans, with well-made greaves and faces as dark as night," as Homer said, etc.
Remember "The Iliad…”
“Agamemnon himself, who is by far the foremost of the Achaeans…”
The cunning warrior, Ulysses, destroyer of citadels… Hector, the Trojan; the old man Aeneas, Priam, and many other characters who, in the end, are more Atlantean than Greek or Trojan.
Homer, obviously, was a great initiate. It is affirmed that "he was blind" and that "he lived from public alms, singing his verses from town to town, throughout the Hellenic land." Obviously, Homer's "blindness" is merely symbolic. In reality, he had no blindness; his eyes were very good, very good. This symbol of "blindness" was only attributed to him in order to affirm that he not only saw the things of the physical world, but also those of the internal worlds. That is to say, he was a great initiate, a great clairvoyant. Thus, it is well worth thinking a little upon the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey"...
By the time of Homer, Troy was already in ruins. Thus, this man wrote his two wonderful books based only on traditions and on his powerful clairvoyance...
As for the beautiful Helen, I do not want to deny that she physically existed, but she fits into an extraordinary symbolic drama.
Some time ago, the German Heinrich Schliemann managed to discover the ruins of old Troy. Troy was not in Greece, as was once supposed; Troy was found in Turkey. The most curious thing is that seven Troys were discovered in the subsoil, indicating that the citadel was destroyed seven times. Destroyed... Yet, as soon as it was razed, it was rebuilt in the same place; that is why the seven Troys were clearly cataloged.
In the treasure of the elderly Priam there is fundamental proof that the beautiful Helen existed. It is said that among the riches found, the crown of the beautiful Helen is there, as well as her gold and silverware, precious stones. So, the beautiful Helen has reality.
It is not known where the archaeologist who made that great discovery took those rich treasures. The Turkish government opposed the removal of those riches from Turkey, but the archaeologist managed to negotiate with that government. I understand that these riches were taken to some important museum... perhaps to London, perhaps to the Louvre of Paris. About this, I do not know exactly. What I do know is that the treasure of old Priam was discovered, and that, in itself, is quite interesting ...
The entire story that the Trojan Aeneas makes about his furtive departure from that citadel is captivating; how he took his pennate deities; how he saved his father, already an old man; how he drew all his relatives from among the smoke and fire of that burning citadel; his trip, then, to old Hesperia ... There is no doubt that all of this is captivating.
Those who have read "The Aeneid" cannot help feeling great pleasure when savoring those narrations and the very rich language of The Aeneid: this is obvious. And Virgil, who is the author of "The Aeneid," reveals himself as a great poet.
It comes to my mind, the poetic connubium of that mind with that very rich language which is used by the poet Virgil, when he says:
"You too have granted eternal fame to our shores; tributes still protect your grave, and your name marks your bones in great Hesperia, if that is glory...
“Aeneas, the good, left the harbour and sailed on his way. The breezes blew through the night, and a radiant white moon was no inhibitor to their voyage, and the sea shone in its shimmering rays ...”
And when describing that step, that fight of the oar with the water, with all of his captivating poetry, he says:
“The oars struggle against the soft marble…”
“Keeping close inshore, they skirted the island of Calixto where Circe, the daughter of the Sun, lives among her riches... with her irresistible herbs, the savage goddess had given to men the faces and hides of wild beasts....”
Well, in order not to delve too deep in this field of literature — which if we do, the whole night will be not enough in order for us to talk about the literature of Virgil and Homer — we will concretize this lecture on the beautiful Helen.
I say that, certainly, she existed as a woman of flesh and blood, but esoterically she is symbolic. Of course, this deserves an explanation.
For example, on a certain occasion Faust made the beautiful Helen appear. Some very curious young people from that time expressed their desire to meet the beautiful Helen; they had a craving, they wanted to see her, to see her physically. Just contemplate such a request: after having already died so long ago, and they wanted to see her! Well, Faust was a great magician; it was of no inconvenience to him to summon the beautiful Helen.
They say that Faust left the premises, and when he came back again the young people who waited were surprised to see on his arm the beautiful Helen of Troy. There she was, physically materialized; she looked like a woman of flesh and blood. They described her as having an ineffable and inconceivable beauty. Yes, they affirm that the beautiful Helen appeared before the young people, summoned by Dr. Faust; very beautiful!
She had blond hair that looked like a cascade of gold that reached to her feet, a wide forehead, straight nose, thin and delicate lips, blue eyes that seemed to contemplate the infinite, rosy as the aurora, her slender and delicate figure, of medium height ...
Well, she looked at the young people and, of course, they felt that their little hearts were "melting"; they wanted, then, to see her as she had really been, in flesh and blood.
Dr. Faust introduced her to the young people, and then he left again, with her at his arm. Of course, they asked Dr. Faust to leave her in order for her to be painted by those who knew how to paint, as there were no photographic devices at that time. Dr. Faust refused to do so, but he promised them a "photograph" of her, for later. And certainly, he kept his word.
Indeed, Dr. Faust was a great esotericist. Some time ago, he performed another similar prodigy: he had invoked none other than Charles V, and the Emperor Charlemagne, and his wife, and both physically appeared, visible and tangible. Faust was, by all accounts, a great theurgist; Faust possessed extraordinary powers.
So, as I said, the symbolism of the beautiful Helen has many diverse interpretations. Indeed, we have the case of Simon the Magician. Despite that he was Gnostic, the belief that he is "father of the Gnostics " is not true. Simon the Magician was diverted by the path of black magic. Simon the Magician claimed that he was married to the beautiful Helen, but certainly the one that accompanied Simon the Magician was not the beautiful Helen but a prostitute that he had found, very beautiful and of majestic appearance, whose name was Helen. Thus, Simon the Magician affirmed that she was the beautiful Helen...
See for yourselves the many symbols of Helen. The Greeks said that the beautiful Helen was the daughter of thundering Zeus ("he who gathers the clouds"), and of Leda, the Greek beauty. We could not deny it...
Examining this matter under the light of Greek mythology, we discover that thundering Zeus ("he who gathers the clouds"), is none other than our Father who is in secret, and that Leda, the Greek beauty, is none other than our Divine Mother Kundalini. As for the beautiful Helen, then, it is certainly the Spirit-Soul of everyone that comes into the world.
Now, since this matter about polarities is a tremendous reality, let us understand that in relation to men, Buddhi is polarized in the form of the beautiful Helen. In relation to women, the symbol changes: thus, to women, the Spirit-Soul is their [masculine] beloved. In any case, Buddhi is the Spirit-Soul, this is obvious.
The beautiful Helen of Troy, then, symbolizes the Soul Spirit. We have to fight to conquer that Soul Spirit, that theosophical Buddhi, that immortal soul, that valkyrie.
In the internal worlds, one is amazed when one does not find within the temple one beautiful Helen, but many beautiful Helens: they are the valkyries. One already knows that each of those valkyries corresponds to a master. Therefore, each master is double, since that master has his human soul, which is masculine, and also has his Spirit-Soul, who is feminine, his valkyrie. She is the beautiful Helen.
Dr. Faust was married to the beautiful Helen. People took that "at the dead letter," right? But, esoterically, it means that Dr. Faust had achieved the betrothal with his valkyrie.
On the other hand, in Simon the Magician, we see a desecration of the beautiful Helen. A prostitute who he had found in Nineveh, and who according to him "was the beautiful Helen." With this we perfectly see in Simon the Magician the desecration, the black magic, because the beautiful Helen, in herself, is none other than the daughter of thundering Zeus ("the one who gathers the clouds"), and of Leda, the Greek beauty.
Zoroaster married the beautiful Helen on the day of his resurrection. Nietzsche, in his work entitled "Thus Spoke Zarathustra," mentions Zoroaster. Zarathustra or Zoroaster are the same. I remember how that work begins; Nietzsche, when talking about Zarathustra, said:
"And as he walked alone one evening over the hills surrounding the town called "The Pied Cow…”
Near there is where Zarathustra's story begins, is not it? Saying, "I bring you the superhuman!" ... And that was Nietzsche's mistake: to believe that the age of the superhuman had already arrived, right? When indeed the human state has not yet been reached, which is the state of the true human, and this is what is serious.
Nietzsche speaks to us about the cave where Zarathustra meditated. He says that Zarathustra lived in a hermit cave, and that rising one morning with the dawn, he went before the sun, and spoke to it and said:
"Oh great star! What would your happiness be if you did not have us to shine for? For ten years you have climbed here to my cave: you would have become weary of shining and of the journey, had it not been for me, my eagle, and my serpent....
“Zarathustra came down from the mountains alone, meeting no one. Eventually, he entered a forest, and there suddenly stood before him an old man, who had left his hermitage to dig for roots. And the old man spoke to Zarathustra:
"This wanderer is no stranger to me! Many years ago he passed this way; Zarathustra he was called, but he has changed. Then you carried your ashes into the mountains: will you now carry your fire into the valleys? Do you not fear to be punished for arson?
"Yes, I recognize Zarathustra. His eyes are clear now, no longer does he sneer with loathing. Just see how he dances along!
"How changed Zarathustra is! Zarathustra has become a child, an awakened one. What do you plan to do in the land of the sleepers? You have been floating in a sea of solitude, and the sea has borne you up. At long last, are you ready for dry land? Are you ready to drag yourself ashore?"
Zarathustra answered: "I love mankind."
"Why," said the saint, "did I go into the forest and the desert? Was it not because I loved mankind far too well? Now I love God! Mankind I do not love; mankind is a thing too imperfect for me. Love of mankind would be fatal to me...."
"I compose hymns and I sing them; and in making hymns I laugh and I weep and I hum: thus do I praise God. By singing, weeping, laughing, and humming I praise the God who is my God. So, do you bring us a gift?"
“When Zarathustra had heard these words, he bowed to the saint and said: "What could I have to give to you? I should leave now lest I take something away from you!" - And thus they parted, the old man and Zarathustra, laughing like two schoolboys....”
As Zarathustra went on his way alone, at sunset he met an old woman, who said:
“Now accept a little truth by way of thanks! I am old enough for it! Swaddle it up and hold its mouth: otherwise it will scream too loudly, the little truth."
"Woman, give me your little truth!" said Zarathustra.
“And thus spoke the old woman: "When you go to women? Do not forget the whip!"
Many took the latter quotations literally, for the dead letter, as though we have to whip the woman. But the harsh reality of the facts is different: meaning, we males have to have a little bit of willpower when we want to work in the "Forge of the Cyclops". However, those who do not understand esotericism, interpret it "at the dead letter."
Well, the truth is that Zarathustra came to the city, and looked at the people and wondered. Then he spoke thus:
"Man is a rope stretched between the animal and the superhuman - a rope over an abyss. A dangerous crossing, a dangerous wayfaring, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous trembling and halting.
What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a goal: what is lovable in man is that he is an over-going and a down-going"....
"I love those who do not first seek a reason beyond the stars for going down and being sacrifices, but sacrifice themselves to the earth, that the earth may become the superhuman's..."
“Where is the lightning to lick you with its tongue? Where is the madness with which you should be cleansed. Behold, I bring you the superhuman! He is that lightning, he is that madness..!”
“The hour when you say: the superhuman has arrived...”
Behold, therefore, the great mistake of Nietzsche: he talked to us about the superhuman, when there are not even humans on the face of the Earth. Indeed, "humanoids" are what are on the earth; in other words, what exists are "intellectual mammals," but not humans in the complete sense of the word.
Well, in any case, Zarathustra fulfilled a beautiful mission in ancient Persia. When he resurrected, he merged or integrated himself, completely, with his valkyrie, his Soul-Spirit. Why? Because that Buddhi, or Soul Spirit, as Madame Blavatsky states in "The Voice of the Silence":
“…is like an alabaster vase, white and transparent; within there burns a steady golden fire, the flame of Prajna that radiates from Atma."
Therefore, Buddhi is the valkyrie, and obviously, the inner Logoi is clothed with Buddhi. The Logoi is contained in Buddhi, in the Soul-Spirit.
When integrating the human soul of Zarathustra with Buddhi or Soul-Spirit — that is to say, when merging himself with his beautiful Helen, within which the divine Logoi was already fully manifest — he became resurrected, looking through her eyes, talking with her word: integral, unitotal...
Zoroaster (/ˈzɒroʊæstər/,also /ˌzɒroʊˈæstər/; Greek: Ζωροάστρης Zōroastrēs), also known as Zarathustra (/ˌzærəˈθuːstrə/)
What happened to Zarathustra? Nobody knows. He disappeared from that cavern. Zoroaster became an immortal master…
So, it is good for us to understand what the beautiful Helen signifies, in strictly esoteric terms.
When one attains the integration with Soul-Spirit — within which is contained the Divine Logoi, as in an alabaster vase — then the Philosophical Stone is constituted in oneself, and this is quite interesting.
It is necessary to know what that blessed stone is, since it is stated that stone is endowed with magnificent powers, and that is true. They best alchemists explain that it looks like "a pear" or "an apple of gold," "a fruit," "a pomegranate,” something precious. They say half is formed by a purple-red color, the precious carbuncle, and the other half, the color of amber, a golden hue... It is rather described as a "potable Moon."
In a poetical manner, some alchemists describe the wonders or powers of that blessed stone, of that precious carbuncle, of that Absolute, of that Sun of the Microcosm-Human, of that star of sapience. There was a certain poet who painted it like "a huge, gigantic tree." He stated,
"Even the largest cedars were mere herbs before such a tree."
That poet affirmed, "the trunk was of pure gold," and "the branches of the tree were of silver." All of this is symbolic; the reality is that such a blessed stone... let's say, potable Moon, is double in its psychic manifestations, in its powers. Regarding the universal medicine, it is well known that it turns out to be the famous elixir, the extraordinary elixir, the magnificent elixir of the potable Moon. It is not untrue that the same transmutation of base metals into pure gold is also related to the powers of the carbuncle or red gem.
If we look at it from the point of view of the elixir, of the famous elixir, unquestionably there is much esoteric tradition and Alchemy about it. The best sages affirm that such an elixir "has extraordinary powers"; that such an elixir "can heal the lepers, heal the blind, the mute"; that such an elixir "can heal the paralytics," etc.
Ancient legends state that, "If three drops of that elixir are mixed with a little alcohol, it can give beauty back to an old woman,” that is, to rejuvenate her. To accomplish this, first she has to bathe herself with aromatic herbs, and thereafter she will have to treat her body with those drops of the famous elixir, within alcohol that will not dry but before a flame; thus, that way, her body will have to be dried...
Much has been affirmed about the elixir of long life, about that universal medicine that cures all diseases: "That, if it is mixed with the rainwater of the heavens, then, the trees, the plants, will reproduce," and even plants that grow in other climates, can come alive ...
As for the gem, the red carbuncle, it is affirmed that with it the transmutation of base metals into pure gold is possible. In any case, we must never forget that the Philosophical Stone, in itself, becomes complete upon the celebration of that wedding, when the human soul marries its Spirit-Soul, who, in classic books, is called "the beautiful Helen."
For us men, therefore, the beautiful Helen has charming attraction, since she is the opposite pole. The sisters who listen to us will say: "Well, she is a woman and we are women too; therefore, what attraction can Helen hold for us?” Well, to those sisters, I say that for them the beautiful Helen assumes the aspect of the most beloved, thus it completely changes: it is the Prince Charming of your dreams, the Prince of a Thousand and One Arabian Nights. So, for women the Spirit-Soul is polarized in a masculine way, and for us men it takes the form of the valkyrie. Thus, the Spirit-Soul is always charming. Moreover, keep in mind that when the inner Logoi is already within the Spirit-Soul, the Spirit-Soul seems, as Helena Petrovna Blavatsky said in "The Voice of the Silence":
"An alabaster vase, white and transparent; within which the flame of Prajna that radiates from Atman burns as a steady golden fire."
Such is the flame of our interior Logoi.
In my book entitled "The Three Mountains," I wrote something that the brothers and sisters have not understood. I stated that after Litelantes disincarnated in Lemuria I took a new wife in order to continue on the path; she was a giant. Isn’t this interesting? Well, the point is that everyone believed that she, the one that I had taken, was a woman of flesh and blood, but she was not of flesh and blood; she was the beautiful Helen. Whosoever reaches resurrection marries their beautiful Helen. And if the one who reaches resurrection is a woman, then she marries the most beloved. In any case, one weds the Spirit-Soul.
Behold for yourselves the locations: on this side of the river is the human soul, with its vehicles; on the other side of the river is the Spirit-Soul. Obviously, in his descent the internal God has to be garbed with the Spirit-Soul. Obviously, when resurrection is verified, the human soul and the Spirit-Soul have to merge, to integrate completely. Then, the Philosophical Stone is formed.
When Simon the Magician states that he found the beautiful Helen in a suburb, in Nineveh, and indeed, the one he found was a prostitute — he was accompanied by Helen, a very imposing prostitute, but a prostitute nonetheless — with one glimpse, it can be clearly seen that Simon the Magician was a black magician; this is obvious.
How different is the beautiful Helen that Zarathustra marries! On the day of his resurrection, he meets the beautiful Helen face to face; she reaches for a chalice, a cup, approaches him and then both merge to form a single, integral, unitotal Being. He looks through her eyes, seeing the world: resurrected, because the Logos was already inside her. After that, the disciples who went to look for the saint no longer found him in his cave. What happened to him? No one knew where Zarathustra went!
As for Helen of Troy, the one for whom so many illustrious men fought, the one that motivated such a tremendous contest, she is undoubtedly symbolic. I do not mean that she did not physically exist; yes, she existed physically.
In any case, a question arises: that beautiful Helen that Faust summoned before the young people who thus requested it, and who appeared, visible and tangible before all of them, would she or would she not be Helen of Troy? I dare to affirm that she was not Helen of Troy, but Faust's own beautiful Helen. If she is, as it is affirmed, Guinevere, the Queen of the Jinns, unquestionably, she has the power to become visible and tangible in the physical world, and therefore, it is not strange that Dr. Faust has managed to make her visible and tangible before those young people. This is what I understand …
Well then, let us continue forward with these disquisitions. The alchemist must strive, first of all, to awaken the Consciousness, in order to be able to verify for oneself, to investigate for oneself, all of these great truths in regard to the Philosophical Stone.
We have been told that the science of the Great Work can only be understood when one receives the Donum Dei, that is to say, the Gift of God; this, in order to be able to understand it. But there is a very just proverb that states:
"Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock on Horeb; and thou shalt strike the rock." - Exodus 17: 6
"Strike with thy rod while thou beg to thy God."
If one wants to become a researcher of life in the superior worlds, if one wants to acquire the Donum Dei — which allows one to understand the mysteries of the Great Work — one unquestionably needs to do something in order to awaken Consciousness. It is clear that by destroying the ego the awakening of the Consciousness is achieved; likewise, there are certain useful coadjuvants that help us in that awakening process.
There is a very esoteric order in the East, which is named Epoptae. That order is extraordinary. It does not have representations in this physical world. But, if one concentrates on that order (which is Tibetan), one can manage to be taken out of the body consciously, and be taught to travel in the astral and mental regions. The instructors of that order spare no effort in that sense: their conscious power is transferred to those minds that think of them, the Epoptae. They can come to initiate one in Jinn travel, to be taken out of the body and then teach how to travel, consciously, in those regions. And this is interesting: this is a holy order that does not have visible temples or anything like that in the physical world. It is totally located in the superior worlds.
The first step of that order will be to awaken the students, to teach them to travel consciously and positively, through the astral and mental regions.
The next step will be to lead men who have no priestess (wife), towards the intimate self-realization of the Being; or, to lead women who do not have a priest, that is to say, husband, to the same.
I have already told you that in that order there are elements, some masters, who come to personify Shiva, the Third Logos, completely; and, there are also others who are polarized in a feminine manner and who represent Shakti totally, that is to say, Isis, or the eternal feminine principle. It is clear that a man who has no priestess-wife, and who has been awakened by the Epoptae Order, can thus receive, as a consort, a Dakini, because she is totally polarized with the Shakti, or eternal feminine principle. By working with her, esoterically, he is able to create the existential bodies of the Being, if he still does not have those vehicles, and if he already has them, to restore the fire in those vehicles. And likewise, a woman who does not have a consort can receive a deva for her esoteric work.
Thus, the Order of Epoptae has no representation in the physical world, but is completely suprasensible, and it is well worth getting in contact with the members of that order, so that they might train one in the use and handling of the astral and mental powers.
It is convenient to lie down with your head towards the North. If you look carefully at the needle of a compass, you will see that it is always facing North; there is a magnetic current that flows from South to North. If you take advantage of this current, lying with your head towards the North, it can do wonders. Then, concentrate on the Epoptae; you can be assisted and accelerate your awakening.
As one advances in these studies related to the Great Work, one understands the necessity of the Donum Dei, to be cognizant in the superior worlds, in order to know where one is going. It is unfortunate to have to blindly walk a path that one does not know. But if one manages to awaken in those regions, everything will change.
Well, my dear brothers and sisters, the Donum Dei can be received, but it is necessary to strive for it.
There is a lot of talk in the Tibetan texts about phowa (as it is written, but is pronounced “po wa”), transference of Consciousness. We need to learn how to transfer the Consciousness to other regions, to other worlds of the cosmos, etc.
Is it possible to transfer the Consciousness? Yes, it is possible! But, in this case, through where would the Consciousness escape? Where is the exit, the door? Well, the Brahmaranda. What is the Brahmaranda? It is the fontanelle… Indeed! The posterior fontanelle. In newborns, there in that place, which is called "the crown of the head" in children, you know very well that the parietal bones are the last ones to be closed. Well, that is where there is a door through which one has to learn to make our Consciousness escape...
This matter about transference of Consciousness, this matter about phowa or “po wa" is very interesting.
The Consciousness, free of the ego, can function in an awakened manner in the internal worlds. But, in order for the Consciousness to break free from confinement or control of the ego, and to escape from the body without the ego, without the little problem of the ego, one needs po wa, phowa.
One needs to place oneself in a state of profound Meditation, begging the Consciousness to escape through the frontal fontanelle of newborns; that is, through the Brahmaranda, as it is said esoterically. We need to forget, to not identify, in order to be able to suspend all those chains, those mechanical associations of the mind and desire; we need to remember ourself...
Moreover, one has ask to the Divine Mother Kundalini for help so she will take the Consciousness out through the Brahmaranda. In very deep and very profound Meditation... I am sure that the Divine Mother will give us help; she is able to bring out the Consciousness through the Brahmaranda.
When the Consciousness exits through Brahmaranda, the awakening is magnificent, because the ego cannot escape through Brahmaranda. Thus, what escapes is the Consciousness and it escapes completely free, in order to function in the superior worlds...
But one needs to work, my dear brothers and sisters; as the Apostle James says:
“For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholds himself, and goes his way, and straightway forgets what manner of man he was.” —James 1: 23, 24
It is necessary to perform what you are hearing, that you become practical in phowa, that you learn the science of the transference of Consciousness. The Tibetans achieve it, but on the basis of sacrifices and efforts.
I think you have heard talk about the short path and the clear light. There are those who are deceased that resolve to withdraw from the scenario of this world; some withdraw definitively and others withdraw until the Iron Age passes. While they are incarnated they work, as much as they can, in the dissolution of the ego. After death they continue their work in the superior worlds, until they disintegrate it, and are finally absorbed in the Great Ocean. But, of course, it is very difficult not to return. You have to learn how to close wombs in order to not return, because the wombs want to grab one’s soul; one has to be strong enough to learn how to close them and escape; they have to resist the howling of the hurricane ... Many deceased, for example, flee in terror, and go to hide among the grottos of a cave, and when they take refuge in that cave, fleeing the storm and the hurricane, the silver cord has been tied to that cave. What is that cave? That cave is a womb!
Others return, horrified, before the howlings of the infernal hurricane, others before frightening demonic visions, others before trials of the Father-Mother. They do not resist, and they return; they end up in some womb. But if one knows how to remain serene, and also if one is helped, if one remembers the omnimerciful or the lord of all compassion, etc., then, at last, one manages to enter into a superior molecular kingdom, where one can be instructed by the devas. One’s Divine Mother will assist to dissolve the "inhuman elements" that have remained, until finally one withdraws from the cosmic scenario, converted into a simple elemental, or an elemental buddha.
In those regions of happiness, you can stay forever, or simply until this Iron Age passes. Once it passes, one then returns in a Golden Age in order to enter a school of mysteries and attain self-realization.
Well, this is the short path. In Tibet, those athletes of phowa — that is, of the science of the transference of the Consciousness — help those who follow the short path. They help them by guiding them, encouraging them, etc. They may stand or fall on the path. It is therefore a wonderful science...
There is no doubt, too, that phowa ultimately gives us, among other things, the Donum Dei which allows us to know the science of the great work. I have explained to you here, what the great work is; but you need the Donum Dei to understand it, and therefore it is important that you follow the practices that we are teaching you.
In Meditation, one must choose the most comfortable position. Some will find it better to meditate in the Asian style, others will prefer to sit in a western position: this is irrelevant. What is relevant is for that Meditation to be perfect, so that one is capable of stopping the chain of mental associations and desire, and concentrating internally on the Divine Mother Kundalini, begging her to take our Consciousness through the Brahmarandra. This is what is interesting.
So, the transfer of Consciousness, in the last synthesis, leads us to understand what the great work is.
Further studies are even more tremendous. For example: there is a science that is called trongjug in Tibetan. It is clear that the Tibetans who know trongjug are capable not only of achieving the transference of their Consciousness to the superior worlds, but they are also capable of seizing another physical body. Sometimes they take over a physical body that someone abandoned, i.e. a person who drowned. If that body is still young, capable of lasting, they then enter that body and appropriate it for their personal use, etc. If they do not take care of themselves, in the long run they can become thieves of physical bodies, and that is a bit dangerous...
