BY HUMAN HANDS AND FEET
 References compiled from the Books of the Agni Yoga Teachings
 —————— 
 Leaves of Morya’s Garden, Book I, The Call 
, 1924
 199. A miracle is wrought — you perform servicesimportant for the manifestation of future life.The difficulties of the task are akin to those of  polishing a diamond.A hostile will must be diverted to the good just as astream is directed to the mill.But how many dams must the miller build before hecan control the current!A hand must possess strength, and an eye vision,to perceive new possibilities.The most worthy labor is that performed with one’sown hands.By labor do you unlock the Gates to the Land of your striving.230. Apply all your efforts.By your own hands will the power of the future be built.I will help, I will help, but add your own efforts.290. Display your wisdom — I speak of action.Each day’s new rays bring new strength.Protective action is not personal, when the raging darknessthrows itself upon the defenses of the pure dwelling.The motion of the Hand of the Divine Sower encompasses the firmament.And the hands of all His Sons shall be upliftedwith one accord and They shall cast Their seed.I will indicate the time for action.Regard the approaching days as the threshold

of the winter’s activity.Hasten to display action.Join your forces for action.Warriors have never been in such a turmoil of action.O thou keen blade, O thou smiting hammer!I am coming, Master Builder. I am coming!306. The harvest must be gathered with a scythe.The wheat-spikes must be brought into the granary byhand.Pure grain must be winnowed by the breath,And the chaff discarded.Thus do We choose the banners of the future.I said it!
 Leaves of Morya’s Garden, Book II, Illumination
, 1925
 I:VII:6. The world’s basin is overflowing with bacilli. The web which covers it quivers. But the magic flower must be plucked on Earth by human hands.II:V:4. One may build a city, one may give the best knowledge, but most difficult of all is to reveal the trueImage of Christ. Think, how to cleanse the Image of Christ.Gathering the crumbs of the people’s concept of the Savior and replacing the chiton by overalls, one can findillumination.By human hands must the Temple be built.II:V:5. The Star of Allahabad pointed out the way. And so We visited Sarnath and Gaya. Everywhere We foundthe desecration of religion. On the way back, under the full moon, occurred the memorable saying of Christ.During the night-march the guide lost his way. After some seeking, I found Christ seated upon a sand moundlooking at the sands flooded by moonlight. I said to Him, “We have lost the way. We must await the indicationof the stars.”“Rossul M., what is a way to Us, when the whole world is awaiting Us?”Then, taking His bamboo staff, He traced a square around the impression of His foot, saying, “Verily, I say, by human feet.”And making the impression of His palm, He surrounded it also with a square. “Verily, by human hands.”Between the squares He drew the semblance of a pillar surmounted by an arc. He said: “O, how Aum shall penetrate into the human consciousness! Here I have drawn a pistil and above it an arc, and have set thefoundation in four directions. When by human feet and human hands the Temple will be built wherein will blossom the pistil laid by Me, then let the Builders pass by My Way. Why should We await the way, when it is before Us?Then, rising, He effaced with His cane all that He had drawn.“When the Name of the Temple will be pronounced, then shall the inscription emerge. In remembrance of My constellation, the square and nine stars shall glow over the Temple. The sign of the foot and the hand shall be inscribed above the Cornerstone.”Thus He Himself spoke of the eve of the new moon.And the heat of the desert was great.The Star of the Morning is the sign of the Great Epoch which will flash as the first ray from the Teaching of Christ. For who is to extol the Mother of the World if not Christ, the One so demeaned by the world.Give Us the Arch of the Dome, wherein to enter.II:V:19. In the Egyptian Mysteries there was a fixed moment when the neophyte, having been placed before athreshold in absolute darkness, had to enter into the Unknown without slackening his steps.Especially nowadays, since Christ has renounced the miracles, this moment into the Unknown must be passed

 by special means. Because the future epoch must erase the boundaries between the worlds. And the EgyptianMysteries have been transformed into the formula, “by human feet.”II:VI:1. One may have at one’s disposal powers not for demonstration but for progressive actions. When theessence is invisible to the crowd and arouses no attention, being veiled by the result, such essence will penetrateinto the consciousness of the people, accustoming them to the fact of achievement through human hands. Thus,actions will be achieved by human hands as a result of the highest spirit-creativeness. It behooves the spirit todwell in spirit. Let the hand manifest the earthly direction; creation by human hands does not arouse hatred.II:VI:3. Our Shield is forged by human hands. The manifested power will come through people. There is no needfor angels to deafen the ears with trumpets when human hands are found able to accept the chalice.III:V:2. Life’s achievement must be performed by human hands.III:V:17. Working hands may disguise the Messenger.
Community
, 1926
 53. Verily, the Earth is to be saved by earthly hands, and the Heavenly Forces are sending the best manna; but if ungathered it is transformed into dew. How then not to rejoice when gatherers are found? When, ignoringderision, these seekers proceed, remembering Our Shield.156. It can be seen that the path of those who bear a mission is not a restful one. People think of a procession of some kind of magicians, almost as with the cap of invisibility.But the World Community is built with human hands and feet, and therein lies the beauty of the construction.

 258. We will affirm the concept of “by human hands.” Why do We insist on the need for action by humanhands? It would seem easier to expand humanity's possibilities by providing access to some new subtle energies.But, once again, the heart of the matter lies in the consciousness. As long as the finer energies are not realizedthey will not be beneficial to people. In fact, it must be understood that energy not consciously realized can even be destructive. An unrealized energy, like an unbridled elemental force, can demolish all surroundings.Realization is almost mastery, and it is already co-measurement. Until humanity begins to realize the truemeaning of energy, it is essential to insist upon the principle “by human hands.”373. Agility of consciousness is a quality of the Higher World. One should understand why royal incarnationsmay alternate with those of shoemakers, without debasement. It is difficult for those on Earth to grasp this ideaof changeability of external forms, because the ascent of the spirit is little understood. Agility teaches one tounderstand things from different angles. And the formula “by human hands and feet” ceases to be an abstraction.375. Wherein lies the success of a yogi? It is not in the attraction of crowds, not in the conversion of multitudes.But, near the works of the yogi, one can observe how others emulate him. Consciously or unconsciously,voluntarily or involuntarily, people begin to do the same thing. Even his enemies, while cursing him, are drawnin his wake. It is as if a special atmosphere had gathered about the actions of the yogi. This is a true success,when neither money nor fame, but the invisible fire kindles human hearts. Desiring to emulate him, these ignitedhearts enter the yogi's atmosphere and bear away with them some drops of the creative dew. Success does notcome only from without. It is created by the collaboration of human hands with spatial thought.
 Infinity
, 1930
 33. To each one is entrusted the finding of the path to the higher sphere; but when humanity thinks that the work designated for the transmutation of the spirit and of all accumulations can proceed from without, then the lever of Cosmos will devastate the accumulation. Only by one’s own hand, only by one’s own will, only by one’s ownstriving, only by one’s own work can the spirit become a conscious co-worker of the Infinite.
