26-2014 -Intuition Human and Solar -Glossary- Volume 2, Lesson 13

  We will continue with the Glossary so that you can become familiar with the word meaning in order to understand the metaphysical language used in the Arcane Studies.

Logos:  The deity manifested through every nation and people.  The outward expression, or the effect of the cause which is ever concealed.  Thus, speech is the Logos of thought, hence it is aptly translated by the "verbum" and the "word" in its metaphysical sense. (See John 1:1-3).

Lord of Civilization:  (See Mahachohan).

Lords of the Flame:  One of the great Hierarchies of spiritual beings who guide the solar system. They took control of the evolution of humanity upon this planet about 18 million years ago during the middle of the Lemurian or third root race.

Macrocosm:  The great universe, literally; or God manifesting through His body, the solar system.

Mahachohan:  The Head of the third great department of the Hierarchy.  This great being is the Lord of Civilization, and the flowering forth of the principle of intelligence.  He is the embodiment on the planet of the third, or intelligence aspects of deity in its five activities.

Mahamanvantara:  The great interludes of time between two solar systems.  This term is frequently applied to the greater solar cycles.  It implies a period of universal activity.

Manas, or Manasic Principle:  Literally, the Mind, the mental faculty; that which distinguishes man from the mere animal.  It is the individualizing principle, that which enables man to know that he exists' feels, and knows.  It is divided in some schools into two parts, higher or abstract mind and lower or concrete mind.

Mantrams:  Verses from the Vedas.  In the exoteric sense a mantram (or that psychic faculty or power that conveys perception or thought) is the older portion of the Vedas, the second part of which is composed of the Brahmanas.  In esoteric phraseology, mantram is the word made flesh, or rendered objective through divine magic.  A form of words or syllables rhythmically arranged, so that when sounded certain vibrations are generated.

Manu:  The representative name of the great Being Who is the Ruler, primal progenitor and chief of the human race.  It comes from the Sanskrit root "man" - to think. (Varisvata Manu is the "Manu" or chief of our Fifth Root Race) Adam Kadman is the Manu of  the Fourth Root Race and The Great Divine Director will be the Manu of the Seventh Root Race - also, Lord and Lady Meru will be the Manu for the Sixth Root Race which will be brought into South America, as the 'tail of the dragon' has returned from the East after 13,000 years of being over Tibet and India - it is now in the Andes Mountains.  Even Divine Mother will be overshadowing these two Root Races, she will be in the Etheric over Lake Titicaca. the Andes, South America - mf)

Manvantara:  A period of activity as opposed to a period of rest, without reference to any specific length of cycle.  Frequently used to express a period of planetary activity and its seven races. (We are the Fifth Root Race within the Manvantara during that period known as Kali Yug consisting of 430,000 years - the end of the Day of Brahma - mf)

Maya:  Sanskrit, "Illusion."  Of the principle of form or limitation.  The result of manifestation.  Generally used in a relative sense for phenomena or objective appearances that are created by the mind. (In the Course of Miracles, Jesus tells us that what God created is real, and what man has made is illusion - mf)

Mayavi Rupa:  Sanskrit, "Illusive Form".  It is the body of manifestation created by the adept by an act of will for use in the three worlds.  It has no material connection with the physical body.  It is spiritual and ethereal and passes everywhere without let or hindrance.  It is built by the power of the lower mind, of the highest type of astral matter.

Microcosm:  The little universe, or man manifesting through his body, the physical body.

Monad:  The One, The Threeefold spirit on its own plane.  In occultism it often means the unified triad -Atma, Buddhi, Manas.  Intuition and Higher Mind - or the immortal part of man which reincarnates in the lower kingdoms and gradually progresses through them to man and thence to the final goal - Ascension.

Nirmanakaya:  Those perfected beings who renounce Nirvana (the highest state of spiritual bliss) and choose a life of self-sacrifice, becoming members of  that invisible host which ever protects humanity within karmic limits.  (The Adepts, the Brotherhood, Who guide and direct mankind with karmic limits - mf)

Permanent Atom:  Those five atoms, with the mental unit, one on each of the five planes of human evolution (the mental unit being also on the mental plane) which the monad appropriates for purposes of manifestation.  They form a stable center and are relatively permanent.  Around them the various sheaths or bodies are built.  They are literally small force centers. 

Planetary Logos:  This term is generally applied to the seven highest spirits corresponding to the seven archangels of the Christian.  They have all passed through the human stage and are now manifesting through a planet and its evolutions, in the same way that man manifests through his physical body.  The highest planetary spirit working through any particular globe is, in reality, the personal God of the planet.  (Our Planetary Logos is Sanat Kumara, one of the original "Sons of God" - He is known in the bible as  "The Ancient of Days"- mf) 

Prakriti:  Derives its name from its function as the material cause of the first evolution of the Universe.  It may be said to be composed of two roots, "pra" to manifest and "krita" to make; meaning that which caused the universe to manifest itself. 

Prana:  The Life Principle, the breath of Life. The occultist believes the following statement:  "Life we look upon as the one form of existence, manifesting in what is called matter, or what, incorrectly separating them, we name Spirit, Soul. and Matter in man.  
Matter is the vehicle for the manifestation of soul on the plane of existence; 
Soul is the vehicle for the manifestation of spirit and 
These three as a Trinity are synthesized by Life, which pervades them all - Prana".

Purusha:  The spiritual self.  The embodied self.  The word literally means "The dweller in the city" -  that is, in the body.  It is derived from the Sanskrit "pura" which means city or body, and"usha" a derivative of the verb "vas" to dwell. 

Quaternary:  The fourfold lower self, or man, in the three worlds.  There are various divisions of this, but perhaps for our purpose the best is to enumerate the four as follows:
  1.  Lower mind.
  2.  Emotional or karmic body.
  3.  Prana, or the Life Principle.
  4.  The etheric body, or the highest division of the 
       twofold physical body.

Raja Lord:  The word "Raja" simply means King or prince; the word has been applied to those great angels or entities who ensoul the seven planes.  These are great devas who are the sum-total and the controlling intelligence of a plane.

Raja Yoga:  The  true system of developing psychic and spiritual powers and union with one's higher self or the Ego (Soul).  It involves the exercise, regulation anad concentration of thought.  (This is the Meditation exercise I have given you with the alignment of the three lower bodies to the soul and Higher Self and then to concentrate upon the "lotus" or Holy Christ Self for at least two to five minutes without allowing the lower mind to interfere - mf)

Ray:  One of the seven streams of force of the Logos; the seven great lights.  Each of them is the embodiment of a great cosmic entity.  The seven Rays can be divided into the three Rays of Aspect and the four Rays of Attribute, as follows:

The above names are simply some chosen from among many, and embody the different aspects of force by means of which the Logos manifests. (NOTE:  Each of us are also on one of these Rays as well - mf)

Root Race:  One of the seven races of man which evolve upon a planet during the great cycle of planetary existence.  This cycle is called a world period.  The Aryan root race, to which the Hindu, European, and modern American races belong is the fifth, the Chinese and Japanese belonging to the fourth race.

Triad:  The Spiritual Man; the expression of the monad.  It is the germinal spirit containing the potentialities of divinity.  These potentialities will be unfolded during the course of evolution.  This Triad forms the individualized or separated self, or Ego. (Simply put:  The Triad consists of The Holy Christ Self or Soul, the Causal Body that circular rainbow surrounding the Presence and the I AM Presence or Higher Self-mf)

Viveka:  The Sanskrit "discrimination."  The very first step in the path of occultism is the discrimination between the real and the unreal, between substance and phenomenon, between the Self and the Not-self, between spirit and matter.

Wesak:  A festival which takes place in the Himalayas at the full moon in May. It is said that at this festival at which all the members of the Hierarchy are present, the Buddha, for  brief period, renews his touch and association with the work of our planet.

Note:  This glossary does not undertake fully to explain all the above terms.  It is simply an attempt to render into English certain words used in this Volume of Initiation Human and Solar, so that the reader may understand their connotation.  The majority of the definitions have been culled from the Theosophical Glossary, The Secret Doctrine, and the Voice of the Silence.
