Quotations from the Work of the Tibetan
(Djwhal Khul), through Alice A. Bailey

The Rays & the Initiations
All moods, all display of sorrow, of pain, or of happy excitement, are due to our identification with objects of desire, with the form aspect and with that which is material. (5)

In the steady adherence to self-appointed rules comes the gradual refining of the instrument and the perfecting of the vehicles. (11)

True understanding is, I realise, not possible for you but much can be gained by your effort to comprehend. (304)

To be static, to have attained all that can be attained and to be at a complete standstill, would be utter death and, my brothers, there is no death. There is only progress from glory to glory, a moving forward from point to point on the divine Way and from revelation to revelation, towards those points and revelations which are perhaps part of the Goal of God Himself. (328)

Love and light are the great revealers and if the student truly seeks to understand and profit by what I am endeavouring to teach, let him love all men more deeply and let him see to it that his light shines forth in a dark place, for "in that light shall he see Light." (329)

The goal of all endeavour upon our planet, is right relations between man and man and between man and God, between all expressions of divine life, from the tiniest atom up and on into infinity. (737/8)

From stage to stage, from crisis to crisis, from point to point and from centre to centre, the life of God progresses, leaving greater beauty behind it as it moves through one form after another and from kingdom to kingdom... The manifestations of the Kingdom of God on Earth, the preparing of the way for its great Inaugurator, the Christ, the making possible the externalisation of the Hierarchy upon Earth, give us each and all a fully adequate task and something for which to live and work, to dream and aspire. (738)

May light and love and power shine upon your ways and may you in due time and with as little delay as possible, stand before the Initiator and join the ranks of Those Who - actively and consciously - love Their fellow men, work as reconstructive and regenerative Energies and forever - SERVE. (738)


Ever down the ages and at every great human crisis, always in the hours of necessity, at the founding of a new race, or in the awakening of a prepared humanity to a new and wider vision, the Heart of God - impelled by the Law of Compassion - sends forth a Teacher...a Christ. (9/10)

(The Christ's) reappearance will knit and bind together all men and women of goodwill throughout the world, irrespective of religion or nationality. (21)

It is to the whole world that Christ comes and not just to the Christian world. He comes to the East and to the West. (100)

He will come unfailingly when a measure of peace has been restored, when the principle of sharing is at least in process of controlling economic affairs, and when churches and political groups have begun to clean house. Then He can and will come; then the Kingdom of God will be publicly recognised, and will no longer be a thing of dreams and of wishful thinking and orthodox hope. (163)

Nothing under heaven can arrest the progress of the human soul on its long pilgrimage from darkness to light, from the unreal to the real, from death to immortality and from ignorance to wisdom... Nothing can keep the spirit of man from God. (159)

All spiritually inclined men and women, all who seek and work for the establishing of right human relations, all who practise goodwill and truly endeavour to love their fellow men, are an integral part of the New Group of World Servers and their major task at this time is to prepare the way for the reappearance of the Christ. (186)


Once an idea becomes ideal, humanity can freely reject or accept it but ideas come from a higher source and are imposed upon the racial mind, whether men want them or not. (8)

Only a few, here and there, really grasp the vision of the future and realise what is going on, seeing truly the beauty of the emerging Plan. (20)

All formulated theologies are the lower expression of the higher spiritual truths, because they embody the mind reactions of the religious man, his confidence in his own personal mind deductions and the surety that he is obviously right. (39)

The little conclusions of the little minds are some of the most dangerous factors today in world affairs. (41)

The world is one world, and its sufferings are one; humanity is in truth a unity, but many are still unaware of this, and the whole trend of the present teaching is directed to the awakening of humanity to this, while there is yet time to avert still more serious conditions. The sins of humanity are also one. Its goal is one, and it is as one great human family that we must emerge into the future. I would emphasise this thought: It is as one humanity, chastened, disciplined but illumined and fused, that we must emerge into the future. Those who do not grasp this important fact, whether they are called belligerents or neutrals, will suffer deeply as a result of their non-participation in the fate of the whole....The Hierarchy is not neutral. It is one with the right element in every nation, and set against all separative, isolationist and materialistic attitudes. Such attitudes prevent the apprehension of the true spiritual values, and hinder human development. Identification with all, and participation in world conditions -- voluntarily and not from force -- is the way out today for all peoples. Ponder on this. (65)

There is no power on earth which can prevent the advance of man towards his destined goal and no combination of powers can hold him back. (106)

The unintelligent work upon the physical plane ... has led to a world which is suffering from cleavage in as true a sense as an individual person can suffer from a "split personality." The lines of demarcation between science and religion are a striking instance of this and have been clearly and forcefully drawn... When a form and an activity is what you call evil, it is only so because the motivating energy behind the form and responsible for the activity is wrongly oriented, selfishly impulsed and incorrectly used. (127)


Sincerity is the first thing for which those of us who teach, inevitably look. (xvii)

Students need to remember that they themselves evoke and call forth the teaching they receive. (110)

You will grow and your soul will take increasing hold upon its instrument, when your mind and effort are turned towards group service and when your tongue is rendered harmless, through the inflow of Love. (111)

Psychology has shown that in the consciousness of every human being is a sense of duality, that man is in some mysterious sense two beings and that it is the warfare between these two which has led to all the neuroses and complexes. (119)

I care not where or to whom you give, only that you give - little if you have but little of time or money, much if you have much. Work and give, love and think and aid those groups who are building and not destroying, loving and not attacking, lifting and not tearing down. (189)

Few people can evolve from within themselves the thoughts and ideas which should lead them on in the realisation of truth; and those of us therefore who are responsible for the teaching of the race, must perforce provide that which is required. (232)

Standards are shifting things and change with man's growth towards divinity. They vary also according to man's destiny as it is affected by his time and age, his nature and surroundings. They alter also according to the point of evolutionary development. (284)

Man stands midway between heaven and earth, with his feet deep in the mud of material life and his head in heaven. In the majority of cases his eyes are closed, and he sees not the beauty of the heavenly vision, or they are open but fixed upon the mud and slime with which his feet are covered. But when his open eyes are lifted for a brief moment, and see the world of reality and of spiritual values, then the torn and distracted life of the aspirant begins. (312)

Men are always searching for the novel and the unusual, forgetting that every new truth and every new representation of an old truth, carries with it the onus of increased responsibility. (315)


The basic truths of today may be seen later as simply aspects of still greater truths and when the greater truth is grasped, the significance and interpretation of its formerly important part is seen to be widely different to what was supposed. (20)

The lesson needs to be learned that death as the human consciousness understands it, pain and sorrow, loss and disaster, joy and distress, are only such because man, as yet, identifies himself with the life of the form and not with the life and consciousness of the soul. (94)

Pursue your own duty and task, shoulder your own responsibility and then leave your fellow disciples to do the same, free from the impact of your thought and criticism. The ways and means are many; the points of view vary with every personality. (107)

As the individual aspirants lose sight of self in service and as they arrive at the stage of indifference to personality claims and happenings, they learn to cherish a spirit of confidence, of joy and of love, deep and lasting, for each other; they learn to work together whole-heartedly for the helping of the world and the assistance of the Hierarchy. (117)

Service is a life demonstration. It is a soul urge and is...an evolutionary impetus of the soul...It is the outstanding characteristic of the soul, just as desire is the outstanding characteristic of the lower nature. (125)

It takes the soul itself to reveal to the poised and peaceful mind the next step to be taken in the work of the world evolution, through the impartation of ideas. Such is the Plan for humanity. (15-136)

There slowly arises in man a divine discontent: the savour of his life experience and enterprises begins to prove unsatisfactory. Another shift in consciousness takes place and he reaches out - at first unconsciously and later consciously -to the life and significance of a dimly sensed reality. (337)

Humanity is weary and tired of unwholesome ways of living, of the exploitation of the defenceless, of the growth of discontent and of the centralisation of power in wrong and selfish hands. (450)

The expansions ... need not be along the line of recognised religious effort ... there is no life activity, no vocational calling, no mental occupation and no condition which cannot provide the key to the unlocking of the door into the desired wider world, or serve to lead a man to the mountain top from which the wider horizon can be seen and the larger vision grasped. (466)

Guidance can come from a man's own soul, when through meditation, discipline and service, he has established contact...This, when clear and direct, is true divine guidance, coming from the inner divinity. (491/2)

It should be remembered that criticism is a virulent poison. It damages in every case eventually the one who criticises - owing to the fact of voiced direction - it hurts still more the one who is criticised. (617)

There are millions of these men of goodwill in the world; they have been increasing steadily in numbers as a result of the agony of the world war but, feeling isolated and alone, they have been impotent and futile. (645)

Human beings are innately kind when their minds are not distorted and their vision impaired by the false teaching of any selfish interest, political propaganda and racial or religious difficulties. (655)

It is only through constant reiteration that men learn and these things must be said again and again. (668)

We live in an era of extremes - of extreme riches and extreme poverty; of extreme ignorance and extreme learning; of extreme discontent and the extreme satisfaction of personal ambitions; of extreme selfishness and extreme self-sacrifice. (670)

Resist not evil but so organise and mobilise the good and so strengthen the hands of the workers on the side of righteousness and love, that evil will find less opportunity. (691)


It is always confusing to the beginner who has not yet a developed and trained intuition, to reconcile the seeming discrepancies and apparent contradiction which appear in the teaching of the Ageless Wisdom...Interpretation and right understanding are based upon the stage of the development of the individual. (64/5)

My underlying motive is ever the same: to indicate the way of living process and to stimulate that divine curiosity and that sense of outgoing spiritual adventure and eager aspiration for progress which is latent in all disciples and which, when stimulated, will enable them to proceed more serenely and sanely upon the Path of Return. (202/3)

Shirk not these crises, hard and difficult though they may appear to be. Difficult they are. Forget not that the habit of confronting crises is a long-established one within the consciousness of humanity...(They) are only the points of examination as to strength, purpose, purity and motive and the intent of the soul. They evoke confidence when surmounted and produce greatly expanded vision. (477)

(Crises) foster compassion and understanding, for the pain and inner conflict they have engendered is never forgotten, for they draw upon the resources of the heart. They release the light of wisdom within the field of knowledge and the world is thereby enriched. (477)

The intuition is the ability to arrive at knowledge through the activity of some innate sense, apart from the reasoning or logical process. It comes into activity when the resources of the lower mind have been used, explored and exhausted. Then and then only, the true intuition begins to function. (516)


It is impossible for me to convey to you the truth, because there exist neither the terminology nor an adequate groundwork of knowledge on your part. (12)

Bitterness, disgust, hatred and a sense of frustration can and do produce many of the prevalent toxic conditions and a state of general poisoning and ill health, from which many people habitually suffer. (92)

The goal of all development is integration - integration as a personality, integration with the soul, integration into the Hierarchy, integration with the Whole, until complete unity and identification has been achieved.(126)

If you will have patience and will be willing to learn by absorption more than by analysis, you will later discover that you know much - intuitively and discriminately. (308)

Above everything else in life, give to all who seek your aid the fullest measure of love, for love releases, love adjusts and interprets and love heals on all three planes. (353)

As regards those who have passed into the light, whom you want to help, follow them with your love, remembering that they are still the same people, minus the outer limiting shroud of the body...Go to them but seek not to bring them back to you. (365)

Let us not fear death, or that which lies beyond it. The wise disciple labours in the field of service but looks forward steadily to the dawn of the "clear cold light" into which he will some day enter and so close the chapter for a while upon the fever and the friction and the pain of earth exist- ence. (365)

My work and the work of all the teachers in this transition period, is to stimulate (students) and fertilise their minds with ideas... They must carry their own responsibility and fail or succeed in arriving at the truth through their own self-initiated effort. (368)

Death appears frequently to be so purposeless; that is because the intention of the soul is not known. (436)

The truth is that much of the divine expression, as any man can demonstrate at his particular point in evolution and at any given stage in his incarnated history. (567)

Man....no matter how low his position on the ladder of evolution, is conscious ever of the unattainable; he is constantly aware of an urge to betterment. (17-568)

If you were entirely free from all emotional reactions, your clarity of mind and your ability to think clearly, would be enormously increased, with all that that involves. (673)

Everything that is of true spiritual value is persistent, ageless, immortal and eternal. Only that dies which is valueless. (684)

I seek to lay the foundation for a future structure of knowledge...I seek to generate in you also a wise and searching expectancy, which will use the little that I am able to impart and the symbolic words I may dictate and so prepare for a greater understanding later. (694)

We are on the verge of entering a new era in scientific unfoldment, owing to the discovery of how to release the energy of the atom. Not even the scientists responsible for the discovery have the faintest idea of the far-reaching effects of the momentous happening. (713)




Leaves Of Morya's Garden   Book One      The Call
Into the New World my first message.

You who gave the Ashram,
And you who gave two lives,
Builders and warriors, strengthen the steps.
Reader, if you have not grasped — read again,
        after a while.
The predestined is not accidental,
The leaves fall in their time.
And winter is but the harbinger of spring.
All is revealed; all is attainable.
I will cover you with My shield,
        if you but tend to your labors.
I have spoken.

There is no salvation surer than that through devotion. One can forgive much where there is unswerving devotion. The man who is devoted in heart can be relied upon. It is cause for rejoicing when Hierarchy is upheld by devotion. At present it is especially needed. If yesterday's confusion seemed enormous, what can one say of tomorrow's? I have already prepared you for the growth of Armageddon, and you know that the black wings of darkness will not withstand the Fiery Sword. Be not astonished, the Battle increases!

Agni Yoga Teachings regarding sex
If we compare two individuals, of whom one dissipates the vital substance while the other consciously conserves it, we will be amazed at how much more sensitive the spiritual apparatus of the second becomes. The quality of his labors becomes entirely different, and the quantity of his projects and ideas multiplies. The centers of the solar plexus and brain are being heated, as it were, by an invisible fire.

Benjamin Creme discusses the emergence of Maitreya, The World Teacher


Maitreya Dancing in Karbala (believe it or not!)


The "Horseman" appears @ 1:23:


Kalki Avatar with the sword of cleavage


"In Hinduism, Kalki (Devanagari: कल्कि; meaning 'Eternity,' 'White Horse,' or 'Destroyer of Filth') is the final incarnation of Vishnu [Maitreya, the World Teacher] in the current Mahayuga, foretold to appear at the end of Kali Yuga [now!]...the Puranas foretell that Kalki will be atop a white horse with a drawn blazing sword. He is the harbinger of the end time in Hindu eschatology, after which he will usher in Satya Yuga [New Age]." Source: Wikipedia

"When Maitreya comes before the world there will begin for men a period of intense heart-searching and reflection. It is only to be expected that for many it will be a painful, even traumatic, one. So steeped in the ways and ideas of the past, so fearful of a future unknown and strange, are millions today, that men will want to take stock of the new situation which will then pertain…. When Maitreya first announces His plans and hopes for the rehabilitation of the world, His energy of Love – the Sword of Cleavage – will further delineate the divisions which now exist. Men will take sides – for or against the new principles that He will present for the betterment of all. Thus will it be. Thus will a period of discord and discontent precede the acceptance of the new. Gradually, however, even the least sanguine will acknowledge the need for a reconstructed world and add their weight to the task.

"There will begin a time unlike aught seen before on Earth. On every hand and at every level the changes will pursue their logical course, cementing in law and principle and form the aspirations of all. Thus will men regain a hold on their destiny and turn away for ever from the abyss. (The Master -- from ‘Coping with change’) 
The Sword of Cleavage is the energy of Love. As people respond to this energy the world will be divided – those who are clamouring for change along the lines Maitreya is advocating, and those who are fearful and looking to the past, who see Him as the Antichrist, are fearful and do not know what to do. They will stand aside and watch the events, and so lose the opportunity presented, for the first time in history, to take part in the transformation of the world. It is up to each individual, from where he or she stands, to assert their divinity. (Benjamin Creme, The Awakening of Humanity)

"Much that is loved must go. Cling not to the old forms. Much will depend on man’s ability to renounce these outworn structures, and to create a new and simpler world. Remember this. Forget not that I come to change all things. My Coming brings peace. Likewise, My Presence brings cleavage. My Sword, that Love which I am, will separate all men, will show the True from the false, will clear the way for the New Light which I bring. May it be that you can withstand this change and accept My Light. (Maitreya, from Message No.74)

 In an interview with the German author Peter Andreas, the scientist Prof. G. Quispel expresses his amazement that the demonstrably wrong ideas on this subject have not been abandoned:

"I am constantly astonished to see that people still do not appear to know what has been recognized for one and a half centuries: that the beast from the Apocalypse refers to none other than the Caesar, Nero. Only the later Christian church, in the time of Constantine (325 AD), put the Apocalypse into a future, historical time-frame." (From: Was Morgenwahr sein kann, Econ Verlag)
666 -- and other misunderstandings



  • One of the easiest ways to know me, Maitreya says, is to be honest in your mind, be sincere in your spirit, and practice detachment. Any action performed with dishonesty of mind, an insincere spirit and attachment is destructive. For example, when you think one thing, say another, and do something which is different again, you are lost. Honesty of mind leads to honest speech and honest action. This harmony leads to peace and happiness. Without detachment there is no salvation.

  • Be what you are. Do not surrender your self-respect, your dignity, to others. Do not allow anyone to cast his shadow over you. A Master gives experiences, but does not cast his shadow.

  • Do not follow one another. If you practice honesty of mind, sincerity of spirit and detachment, you will know me, you will know the Lord.
