Sanat Kumara and the Planetary Logos It is the universality of these conditions and the clear-cut issues that have made this period one of planetary opportunity and planetary initiation. EX 136 ...4. Upon certain planetary happenings, connected with the life of the One "in Whom we live and move and have our being." hese involve the impact upon our planet of !orces and "nergies which will be instrumental in altering the e#isting civili$ation and culture, in clima#ing %armic necessity and in thus engineering release, presenting humanity with that stage in the e#perience of the disciple which we call "the meeting of the &weller on the hreshold with the 'ngel of the (resence," and inducing as a conse)uence a certain planetary initiation. hese four stages of the *aw of +ause and "ffect ,as it affects humanity at this time- might be called. ...4. he attainment of planetary initiation *aw of Initiation EX 109 'fter the present great world crisis, incident to our planetary *ogos having moved forward upon the cosmic (ath, and therefore having ta%en a cosmic initiation, /is imperfections are demonstrably lessened. there will be less distress and disease on earth once the necessary planetary ad0ustments have been made. EH 536-537 'll I have done is to give you a hint as to the significance of the initiations, instituted by the *ord of the World. hese are not, may I repeat, initiations to which the planetary *ogos is /imself sub0ected. he world crises, which ever precede initiation on a planetary scale, are part of the preparatory wor%, tests and trials which ma%e possible some cosmic initiation to which /e has been and will eventually be sub0ected.... here is little more that I can tell you anent the planetary initiations or--as they might be more correctly called--the planetary initiatory processes. hese affect our entire planetary life but are not essentially initiations as we understand the term, or as that word could be applied to 1anat 2umara. hey are a definite part of cosmic process and particularly of solar evolution, but they are, as we have seen, only preparatory to that initiation for which our world was made--the manifestation on "arth of the highest of the three aspects. the WI** of 3od, as it is universally called. RI 661 hese are the broad and general lines governing the initiatory process4 the wor% here indicated is followed by all disciple-initiates of all degrees, and even by the *ord of the World /imself. /e, in /is high (lace, holds the manifested world of energies in a state of fusion4 points of tension successively occur as a conse)uence of a growing divine reali$ation within these forms of intelligent activity, of love-wisdom and of the will-to- good. hese points of tension vary according to the divine purpose and the individual initiatory problem of 1anat 2umara /imself, as /e submits to a cosmic initiatory process. RI 542 he originating source of the manasic principle in a planetary scheme is that lesser cosmic "ntity Whom we call a planetary *ogos. /e wor%s through /is seven chains as does the *ogos through /is seven planetary centers. It is interesting here to note that when the solar *ogos is being manasically impelled to wor% out some purpose of /is greater 1ource ,/" O5" '6OU W/O7 5'U3/ 7'8 6" 1'I&- /e may cause a vivification in one or other of /is centers according to the purpose in view. his occurred in the forming of the triangle of which "arth and 9enus are two points, and ,affecting the /eavenly 7en of these two schemes - stimulated hem to ta%e initiation, and led the planetary *ogos of our scheme to form a lesser triangle within /is sphere of activity, which triangle eventuated in /is ta%ing a lesser initiation, and in the manasic impregnation of animal man. hus were swept into ob0ective activity that group of monads who go to the composition of a particular center. C 393-394 7ercury was active at the time of individuali$ation when the "eighth gate" was opened and a ma0or initiation of our planetary *ogos too% place, producing, in the human %ingdom, the process of individuali$ation. E! 29" !irst, it should be borne in mind by the occult student that. ...c. hat the planetary *ogos did not come from the 9enus scheme but from the 9enus chain of /is own scheme, the "arth scheme. Owing to systemic alignment logoic %undalini could flow through a certain triangle of which two points were 9enus and the "arth. his caused an acceleration of vibration, and enabled the /eavenly 7an of our scheme to ta%e a minor initiation, and to set about /is preparations for a ma0or initiation. 5e#t, it should also be remembered that in considering this matter we must be careful to view it not only as it affects our own globe and its present humanity, but from the systemic and cosmic point of view, or from the angle of its importance to a planetary *ogos and a solar *ogos. /ence it is a fact that this event was not only the result of the ta%ing of a minor initiation by our "arth *ogos, but in the 9enus scheme it was signali$ed by the ta%ing of a ma0or initiation by the 9enusian planetary *ogos on /is fifth chain. In connection with a solar *ogos it followed upon the stimulation of one of /is centers and from the geometrical progression of the fire through the earlier mentioned riangle. C 3"6-3"7 'll these results were seen when the /eavenly 7an of our scheme too% initiation eighteen million years ago. his initiation was brought about--as earlier pointed out--by a peculiar 0u#taposition of chains, globes and schemes, and caused such a stimulation of all the latent manasic units within /is body that a downflow of pure manas from the planetary manasic permanent atom was possible along the path of the planetary antas%arana--a channel which e#ists in the case of the planetary *ogos, and which has not to be built as in the case of man. 'long with this 0u#taposition came a similar alignment with one of the (leiades, permitting of manasic influence from that source. C 349 When man individuali$ed in *emurian days, it was through the application of the :od of Initiation to the *ogos of our earth chain, which touched into activity certain centers in /is body, with their corresponding groups. his application produced literally the awa%ening of the life to intelligent wor% on the mental plane. 'nimal man was conscious on the physical and on the astral planes. 6y the stimulation effected by the electric rod this animal man awo%e to consciousness on the mental. hus the three bodies were coordinated, and the hin%er enabled to function in them. IH# 127 hirdly, initiations in which a /eavenly 7an may ta%e either a minor or a ma0or initiation, thereby involving /is entire nature. !or instance, when individuali$ation too% place during the *emurian, or the third root race, and the human family in this cycle definitely came into manifestation, it signified a ma0or initiation for our /eavenly 7an. he present stimulation in hierarchical effort is leading up to a lesser initiation. "ach great cycle sees a ma0or initiation of a /eavenly 7an ta%en on one or other of the globes, and herein again complication lies, and much food for thought. IH# 1"1 he fact, therefore, that in each chain the planetary *ogos ta%es a different initiation, affecting different centers4 and so bringing into manifestation different lesser entities. C 3"0 hey depict only one cycle in logoic evolution, and cover only the present greater period in the wor%ing out of which we are engaged. hey might be roughly described as embracing that period in the system which began for us in the middle of the third root-race of this round and continues until the period called "the ;udgment" in the coming fifth round. When that time comes our planetary *ogos will have attained the initiation which is /is present goal.... C 3"9-390 ' ma0or incarnation is one in which a planetary *ogos ta%es some initiation. /e may, and does, pass through many incarnations without ta%ing initiation. When /e does ta%e initiation, it is interesting to note that He $oes so $%rin& some incarnation in 'hich He ta(es a )ehicle o* etheric matter as is the case at this time+ he *ogos of our scheme is preparing for initiation and hence the terrific tests and trials, incident to life on our planet during this cycle, are easily accounted for. he *ogos of our scheme, 1anat 2umara, will ta%e a ma0or initiation in the middle of the fifth round, but is preparing for a minor one at this time. C 374 here is, as you may imagine, little that I can say on this matter for it concerns one of the great and ma0or mysteries of initiation. It deals with and is related to the spiritual status of the planetary *ogoi, those great 6eings in Whom all forms of life on all planets live and move and have their being. It is concerned with heir point in evolution, with heir goals and ob0ectives upon the cosmic (ath and with the initiation for which hey-- in heir incomparable and incomprehensible livingness--are preparing. 6asically it might be said that a planet is regarded as "sacred" when its informing spiritual *ife has ta%en five of the ma0or cosmic initiations and that a "non-sacred" planet is one whose planetary *ogos has not ta%en these initiations. E! 503 It is a cycle also in which the planetary *ogos, having successfully ta%en initiation and thus affected /is entire planetary life, has also established certain e#tra-planetary relationships which are necessarily incomprehensible to you and of no moment whatsoever to the individual human being, but which will eventually create a situation in which our planet will become a sacred planet. EX 567-56" When this stage of centrali$ation is achieved, then the group can begin to reveal the hidden mystery. 'll that I can tell you about that mystery is that it concerns the purpose and the reason for which our planetary *ogos too% incarnation and became the informing *ife of our planet, the "arth4 it concerns the necessity, inherent in /is Own nature, to reach a point upon the cosmic ladder of evolution which would ma%e /im--as a result--the informing *ife of a sacre$ planet. !orget not that our planet is not yet a sacred planet, though it is close to that great transformation. he cosmic secret of this transforming process is one that 1anat 2umara is now learning, and when ,hat which overshadows /im during this incarnation has wrought the needed changes through a process of transformation and transmutation, then a great ransfiguration will ta%e place and /e will ta%e /is place among those empowered to wor% through a sacred planet. RI 260 his group approach, this group intention, this "group silent reticence and vocal recognition," and this group dedication and vision are no longer in the e#perimental stage. his group achievement ,I refer not here to your particular group which has not been outstandingly successful- mar%s the point where there can be the inauguration of a new phase of activity in 1hamballa. his will enable the *ord of the World to become the :uler of a 1acred (lanet which, up to date, has not been the case. Our "arth can now become a 1acred (lanet, if all right conditions are fulfilled. ' new divine )uality ,as yet unrevealed and which we would not at this time recogni$e if presented with it- is slowly crystalli$ing into e#pression, through the medium of this hastened initiation process. -.!2 326 here is one triad of cosmic energy that is of supreme importance upon our planet and it is the united influence of its three constellations which will eventually bring about the initiation of the planetary *ogos4 this will warrant any future planetary e#pression of /is life to be termed a "sacred planet." 't present our "arth is not regarded as a sacred planet. *ater, when these three energies have produced ade)uate effect and the needed planetary changes have been produced, the term "sacred" will be deemed correct and appropriate. his statement of course means little to any student at this time. E! 469 'll this has been brought about as the result of the determined, conditioned activity of a 3reat *ife, Which chose to ma%e a ma0or sacrifice and to be crucified upon the cardinal +ross of the /eavens, and thereby pass through a cosmic initiation.... E/2 91 We need to remember that 0ust as in particular incarnations, men are focused or polari$ed in various bodies--sometimes the astral and sometimes the mental--so at this time one might infer that our planetary *ogos /imself is focused in /is mental body. /e, it has been said, is striving towards the fourth cosmic initiation, which ma%es possible o%r attainment of the fourth Initiation, for /e carries us forward with /im, and, on our particular level, we achieve as cells in /is 6ody. 01 391 It might here be stated in connection with the planetary *ogos of our scheme that. a. /e is in physical incarnation. b. /e is midway through /is career upon the cosmic (ath of Initiation, and conse)uently is to ta%e the fourth Initiation in this chain. Well may this globe, therefore, be considered the globe of sorrow and of pain, for through it our planetary *ogos is undergoing that which the mystic calls "the +rucifi#ion." ...Our planetary *ogos has for ob0ective seven initiations, the second cosmic Initiation being /is goal. C 3"4 6ut at three points on the path of evolution the 7onads of *ove, wor%ing on the abstract )ualities, touch the devas of activity wor%ing on concrete faculty. he perfection of the two evolutions mar%s the point of attainment of the divine /eavenly 7an4 it is the perfecting of the two ma0or centers, creative activity and love, of the *ogos. In their lower aspect these centers are %nown as the centers of generation and the solar ple#us, but are transmuted, as evolution proceeds, into the throat and heart centers. hen, in a dual synthesis, they will pass on into the third system, that in which the (ower aspect is developed, and the head centers will be complete. his achieved, our *ogos has triumphed, and measured up to the si#th cosmic Initiation, 0ust as /e should measure up in this system to the fourth. C 590 :'8 II -- his ray is always in sub0ective manifestation and very potent because it is the ray of our solar system and particularly so at this time as the /ierarchy is approaching closer to humanity in preparation for the "crisis of love," and an imminent ma0or planetary initiation. -. 142 +ertain great read0ustments are going on in that center st :ay of Will he heart center--/ierarchy--?nd :ay of *ove-Wisdom he throat center--/umanity--@rd :ay of 'ctive Intelligence he impact of the new incoming energies upon /umanity will result from a planned redirection. his will bring in an era of greatly enhanced creative activity4 it will be an activity such as has never been seen before, and which will e#press itself in every department of human living. RI 550-552 'strologically, the time is propitious4 from the planetary angle, great and momentous events are imminent, as the planetary *ogos is ta%ing a cosmic initiation4 the energy which produces order and which magically brings spirit and matter together ,the energy of the seventh ray- is already organi$ing human affairs and these three great coinciding events in time and space ma%e it possible for the seventh ray energies to reach a high point of fused activity and of blended cooperation. -.!2 426 his seventh ray sweeps into organi$ed and directed activity the world of forces upon the outer sphere of manifestation, and produces the precipitation of 2arma, which, in this case leads to. >. he wor%ing out into e#pression of all the sub0ective evil of the life of humanity, thus producing the world war. ?. he initiation of the planetary *ogos and--with /im--of all who ta%e their stand upon the side of the !orces of *ight. his ta%es various forms as far as humanity is concerned. a. he initiation of the consciousness of the masses of men into the ')uarian 'ge, bringing them under the new influences and potencies, and enabling them to ma%e a response of which they would not otherwise be capable. b. he initiation of the aspirants of the world on to the (ath of 'ccepted &iscipleship. c. he bringing about of certain ma0or initiations in the case of those world disciples who are ready enough and strong enough to ta%e them. E! 540 In considering these points it should always be remembered that great shifts in consciousness, or great e#pansions of awareness, are followed inevitably by upheaval in the outer forms. his is true in the life of the solar &eity, of a planetary *ogos, of humanity as a whole and of a man. /ence again todayAs world problem. ' ma0or event such as a change in the a#is of the "arth is related to an initiation of the planetary *ogos. E! 410-411 he benefit to the unit reacts upon the whole. ' 7aster carries /is disciples on and up with /im in a similar manner. he matter is abstruse and largely one of the secrets of the law of vibratory e#pansion. he initiation of the *ogos has a universal effect. 01 352 he evil %arma generated in any %ingdom in relation to the "realm where dwelleth the planetary &weller on the hreshold" stands between the cosmic &oor of Initiation and our planetary *ogos. his &weller represents all the mista%es and errors due to wrong reactions, unrecogni$ed contacts, deliberate choices made in defiance of %nown good, and mass movements and mass activities which are temporarily not progressive in time and space. I reali$e that where these facts apply to the subhuman %ingdoms in nature you are not aware of what I mean, but that does not alter the law or movements which are in no way related to human evolution. In connection with the planetary *ogos I would li%e to add that in that great planetary struggle and /is subse)uent initiation, we are all implicated--from the atom of substance up to and including all the *ives which form the +ouncil +hamber of the *ord of the World4 it is this titanic effort which is made by the sum total of all the living processes and entities that compose the manifestation of 1anat 2umara which is responsible for the creative evolutionary processes4 it is also responsible for what we call time, with all that that concept involves of events, opportunity, the past, the present and the future, the good and the evil. ,E2 "0 Hint #e)en+ 34ne o* the mar(s o* rea$iness *or initiation is the a5ility to see the e6pan$in& an$ incl%si)e 0hole7 an$ to note the la' 'hich is transcen$e$ 'hen the part 5ecomes the 0hole+3 ...his sentence both in its individual, tonic and orchestral sounding forth, carries information and illumination even to the planetary *ogos when it is uttered during any cosmic initiation that the planetary *ogos may be ta%ing--and which /e is .o' doing.... he reason lying behind all this is that the planetary *ogos in this particular world cycle is undergoing an initiation which will shift /is focus into the hierarchical center, into that center of energy which we call the /ierarchy4 from that point of attained focus /e will submit to the cosmic initiation for which /is planetary wor%--creative and magnetic--has prepared /im. 's /e, in /is Own essential nature, ma%es progress, every phase of /is manifesting body, /is e#pressive (ersonality, is involved, with the emphasis of the conditioning energies wor%ing out through the two centers at this time preeminently active4 i.e., the center which we call the race of men, /umanity, in which the energy of intelligence is focused and critically active, and the center where the love of 3od is demonstrated, the /ierarchy. In these two centers a great activity is on the move and a vital e#pansion or moving outward is ta%ing place. -.!2 41"-419 's our planetary *ogos nears the clima#ing point of the initiation which /e is now undergoing, /is 'shram, the /ierarchy, must and does ,as part of a normal development- feel the effect. !rom the +hrist down to the newest and latest accepted disciple, each in his own place, all are becoming increasingly responsive to the "will of 3od."
