144 - The Reappearance of the Christ




Everything in black font are the teachings of the Tibetan

Everything in blue print are comments by Margaret Mary

D. K. "talks about down through the ages, in many cycles and world ages, in many countries (especially now) great points of tension have been characterized by a hopeful sense of expectancy..."

"Someone is expected and His coming is anticipated - usually it's been one of chaos and difficulty  - a climaxing point at the close of a civilization and when the old religious teaching seem inadequate to meet men's difficulties or solve problems.

Today is no different - the coming of the Avatar; the advent of a Coming one, in terms of today, the reappearance of the Christ are the keynotes of the prevalent expectancy.  When the times are ripe, the invocation of the masses is strident enough and the faith of those who know is keen enough, then always He has come and today will be no exception to this ancient rule or to this universal law.  For decades, the reappearance of the Christ, the Avatar, has been anticipated by the faithful in both hemispheres - not only by the Christian faithful, but by those who look for Maitreya and for the Boddhisattva as well as those who expect the Iman Mahdi.





When man has exhausted all their own resources and have come to an end of all their own innate possibilities and that the problems and conditions confronting them are beyond their solving handling, they are apt to look for a divine intermediary and for the Mediator Who will plead their cause with God and bring about a rescue.  They look for a Savior. This doctrine of Mediators, of Messiahs, of Christs and of Avatars can be found running like a golden thread through all the world faiths and Scriptures and, relating these world Scriptures to some central source of emanation, they are found in rich abundance everywhere.  Even the human soul is regarded as an intermediary between man and God; Christ is beloved by countless millions to act as the divine mediator between humanity and divinity.

The whole system of spiritual revelation is based (and has always been based) on this doctrine of interdependence, of a planned and arranged conscious linking and of the transmission of energy from one aspect of divine manifestation to another - from God in the "secret Place of the Most High" to the humblest human being, living and struggling and sorrowing on earth.  Everywhere this transmission is to be found; "I am come that they may have life" says the Christ, and the Scriptures of the world are full of intervention of some Being, originating from some source higher than the strictly human.  Always the appropriate mechanism is found through which divinity can reach and communicate with humanity, and it is with this
communication and these Instruments of divine energy that the doctrine of Avatars or of divine "Coming Ones" had to do.

An Avatar is one Who has a peculiar capacity (besides a self-initiated task and a pre-ordained destiny) to transmit energy or divine power. This is necessarily a deep mystery and was demonstrated in a peculiar manner and in relation to cosmic energy by the Christ Who - for the first time in planetary history, as far as we know - transmitted the divine energy of  love  directly to our planet and in a most definite sense to humanity.  Always too these Avatars or divine Messengers are linked with the concept of some subjective spiritual Order or Hierarchy of spiritual Lives, Who are concerned with the developing welfare of humanity.  All we really know is that, down the ages, great and divine Representatives of God embody divine purpose, and addict the entire world in such a manner that Their names and Their influence are known and felt thousands of years after They no longer walk among men.  Again and again, They have come and have left a changed world and some new world religion behind Them; we know also the prophecy and faith have ever held out to mankind the promise of Their coming again amongst us in an hour of need.  These statements are statements of fact, historically proven.  Beyond this we know relatively few details.

The word "Avatar" is a Sanskrit word, meaning literally "coming down from far away" Ava (as prefix to verbs and verbal nouns) expresses the idea of "off, away, down."  Avatars (comparative) farther away. The root AV seems at all times to denote the idea of protection from above, and is used in compounds, in words referring to protections by kings or rulers; in regard to the gods, it means accepted favorably when a sacrifice is offered.  With the result that the root word can be said to mean "Coming down with the approval of the higher source from which it came and with benefit to the place at which it arrives." (From Monier-Williams' Sanskrit Dictionary).

All of These Avatars, Boddihisattas, World Teachers have come over the centuries to bring light and love and power to answer the prayers of mankind.  Also, we must not forget how often Mother Mary has appeared time and time again, acting as mediator between mankind and Her son Jesus the Christ, answering the prayers of the faithful.

All the world Avatars or Saviours, however, express two basic incentives:  the neEd of God to contact humanity and to have relationship with men and the need of humanity for divine contact, help and understanding.  Subject to those incentives, all true Avatars are therefore divine Intermediaries.  They can act in the fashion because They have completely divorced Themselves from every limitation, from all sense of self hood and separateness and are no longer - by ordinary human standards - the dramatic center of Their lives, as are most of us.  When They have reached that stage of spiritual decentralization, They Themselves can then become events in the life of our planet; toward Them every eye can look and all men can be affected.  Therefore, an Avatar or a Christ comes forth for two reasons:  one, the inscrutable and unknown Cause prompts Him so to do, and the other is the demand or the invocation of humanity itself.  An Avatar is consequently a spiritual event, coming to us to being about great changes or major restorations, to inaugurate a new civilization or to restore the "ancient landmarks" and lead man nearer to the divine.  They have been defined as "extraordinary men Who from time to time appear to change the far of the world and inaugurate a new era in the destinies of humanity."  They come in times of crisis; They frequently create crisis in order to bring to an end the old and the undesirable and make way for new and more suitable forms for the evolving life of God Immnent in Nature. They come when evil is rampant.  For this reason, if for no other, an Avatar may be looked for today.  The necessary stage is set for the reappearance of the Christ.
