is the real purpose of meditation?
is a method, more or less scientific (depending on the meditation),
for bringing the man or woman in incarnation into contact and
eventual at-one-ment with the Higher Self or soul.
The time has passed for meditating
alone, getting on with one's own personal spiritual salvation,
without at the same time accepting the need, the duty, of service.
The nature of the soul is to serve. The soul knows only altruistic
service and comes into incarnation to serve. So what is the point,
as a meditator, of spending all that time and effort getting
in touch with the soul and not carrying out its purpose? The
soul is carrying out the Plan of the Logos. It is a great sacrifice
for the soul to do so, because it is so limited at this physical
level. It gains experience at this level, but the true reason
behind the incarnating process is the carrying out of the Will
of the Logos through the sacrificial decision of the soul itself.

in meditation will have been engaged, whether they know it or
not, in aligning the physical brain with the soul, the personality

Meditation affect the process of our growth or evolution?
work is a door which leads to a path that takes you directly
to Hierarchy. It is part of a process planned by Hierarchy whereby
the aspirants and the disciples of the world will work in a co-operative
fashion with each other.
Most people want to approach Hierarchy
whether they are ready for it or not - they would like to meet
and work with a Master. Transmission is not a way to meet Masters,
but it is certainly the simplest way to work with the Masters.
What we are really doing in Transmission
Meditation (besides helping the world) is doing Kriya Yoga, which
is actually being done for you by the Masters. Gradually, the
shifting of polarization from astral to mental is taking place,
without your being aware of it. What you do become aware of is
the change in yourself, in your outlook on the world. Many people
have said to me: 'I feel a better person; I can do my work better;
I am more mentally focused, more articulate; I can bring many
ideas together, . . .', and so on. This is all the result of
steady Transmission work. It happens just by doing Transmission,
because it is being done for you by the Masters. It is a deeply
occult meditation, and the Masters manipulate the energy for
you. What you might achieve in 20 years of Kriya Yoga practice,
you will probably achieve in one year of steady Transmission
work." (Back to Top)
the prerequisites for forming a Transmission Meditation group?
a desire to serve the world -- a simple, altruistic motive of
serving. It is not the place to seek individual guidance, contact
with the astral planes or messages of any kind. It is simply
a giving of oneself in service, acting as a positive mental channel
through which the energies sent by the Masters can be stepped
Another requirement is regularity
and continuity. The group should always meet at the same place
and time every week. The Masters need to know that every Monday,
for instance, at a certain location, at eight o'clock in the
evening, or whenever, they will find a group of individuals ready
and willing to transmit the energies. . . . the prerequisites
are service, regularity, continuity, and commitment." (Back to Top)
do you mean by "aligning the physical brain with the soul"?
or later we have to come into a state of alignment between the
physical brain and the soul. That is what meditation does. By
meditation you gradually build a channel called the 'antahkarana',
which is a channel of light from the physical plane up to the
soul. Simultaneously, the soul is building the same bridge down
toward the physical. This channel, when formed, provides a link
between the soul and its vehicle, and vice versa. This is the
process whereby the man or woman gradually becomes at-one with
the soul. The soul 'grips' the vehicle and reflects itself through
it. By the use of the mantram OM and the holding of the attention
at the ajna center between the eyebrows, an alignment is created
between the brain and the soul."

is alignment to Transmission Meditation?
important. It is the alignment between the brain and the soul
which allows the Masters, working from the soul level, to channel
the energies through the groups."

any special breathing techniques we should use during Transmission
The breathing should be natural, light, high in the chest and
silent. With experience you will find that the breathing becomes
so light it practically stops for quite long periods. These are
often ended with a sudden, strong, 'gasp' of air intake." (Back

the Buddhic level. It is stepped down for us by the Masters and
we step it down further. Alignment is necessary to transmit it." (Back
danger in transmitting these energies?
is a danger inherent in all meditation, of course. These are
very powerful forces. The forces which you receive from your
soul during meditation are very powerful, especially if you meditate
in a dynamic fashion. Transmission Meditation is a very dynamic
meditation, although it is also the simplest one I know. But
it is totally under the control of the Masters. They are experts
and will not send through your centers more energy than you can
The only provision is that no children
under the age of 12 should take part in a Transmission Meditation
for the simple reason that the force centers, the chakras, of
a child under the age of 12 are still relatively unformed and
unstable, so the energy could do them harm. It is also not advised
to keep infants or babies in the same room where Transmission
Meditation is taking place. The Masters have to shield them from
the energies and it is a waste of Their valuable energies to

Meditation to be done only by mentally stable and well-anchored
Meditation should be done, in principle, only by mentally stable
and well-anchored people. In specific cases it can benefit somebody
who does not necessarily fit into these categories, but in general
when people are in a highly unbalanced emotional state or in
a psychotic condition, they should not take part in Transmission
work. The energies are too high and there is a danger of over-stimulation." (Back to Top)
Is it necessary
to have reached a certain level to profit by and serve through
is a self-selecting process at work in that only those sufficiently
evolved to want to serve will be attracted to Transmission Meditation.
But that provision aside, no special expertise or experience
is required to transmit the Hierarchical energies in this way." (Back to Top)
How can we
become better transmitters of energy?
best way to become a better transmitter is to do more Transmission
work. It is a self-grooming process. The more you do, the better
you become. It is not possible to do it without being transformed
by the energies. What is tremendously potent at one time you
will not even notice six months later. Your centers are absorbing
it and getting used to it. What you notice is the next higher
potency. Only by doing Transmission Meditation do you make progress
in it." (Back
If one is
in a Transmission Meditation group, is it all right to take part
in other types of meditation?
Transmission Meditation does not work against any other form
of meditation. Indeed, it will enhance the quality and effectiveness
of any other meditation you may do. Every individual today, whatever
his level, his background, his type of mind, and tradition has
a teaching, a path, a meditation, or a guru available to him.
All true gurus are members of the Hierarchy at some level, initiates
of some degree. The more developed the individual, the higher
the guru he will be attracted to." (Back
