Contact with the sun should be much sought after, and the vitalization that comes through its rays. The sun kills all germs and frees from disease.
(Letters on Occult Meditation p334)
The main centre for the reception of prana at present is a centre between the shoulder blades.

(1) Solar prana - this is that vital and magnetic fluid which radiates from the sun, and which is transmitted to man's etheric body...It is... emitted as powerful radiations, which are applied directly through certain plexi in the uppermost part of the etheric body. ...
(2) Primarily the functions of the etheric body are three in number:
1. It is the receiver of prana.
2. It is the assimilator of prana.
3. It is the transmitter of prana.
(Treatise on Cosmic Fire p93)
(3) The pranic emanations of the sun are absorbed by the etheric body, via certain centres which are found principally in the upper part of the body, from whence they are directed downwards to the centre which is called the etheric spleen. ... The main centre for the reception of prana at present is a centre between the shoulder blades.
(Treatise on Cosmic Fire p98)
(4) The more refined and rarefied the form, the better a receiver of prana it will be, and the less will be the resistance found to the uprising of kundalini at the appointed time.
(Treatise on Cosmic Fire p103)
(5) The race suffers from certain incapacities, which may be described as follows: -first: Inability to tap pranic currents, owing to the unhealthy lives passed by so many.... The cure is apparent-the bringing about of better living conditions, the employment of more appropriate clothing, and the adoption of a freer and more salubrious mode of living. When the pranic rays can find free access to the shoulders, and to the diaphragm, the subnormal state of the average spleen will adjust itself automatically. -second: Over-ability to tap pranic currents.... The etheric body receives prana or solar rays too rapidly, passes it through and out of the system with too much force, and this leaves the victim a prey of inertia and devitalisation.
(Treatise on Cosmic Fire p106/7)
(6) The healer or healing group must remember that it is not mental energy only with which he works. He, for himself,
a. Creates a thought of healing power.
b. That created focal point of concentrated, attention, becomes the directing agent for the healing force, or prana.
c. This prana is neither mental nor astral in nature. It is pure planetary substance or living essence, and is that substance of which the vital body of the planet is made.
d. The healer or the healing group, appropriates as much of this substance as possible, and by the power of their united thought, direct it to and through the center involved. Healing work is circulatory and this must not be forgotten. The pranic energy (thought directed) is not sent to the centre and there permitted to accumulate. It is passed through the centre, first of all to the organ involved, or the area where the difficulty is found, and then is sent out to the body as a totality. It might be regarded as a system of flushing, with a purifactory and stimulating effect.
(Esoteric Healing, p.287)
(7) Prana might be defined as the life-essence of every plane in the sevenfold area which we call the cosmic plane...

Agni Yoga Teachings about Prana
Leaves of Morya's Garden I,
The Call, 1924
The Call, 51. Powerful, exalted visions require pure surroundings, and prana.
Christ's deeds were consummated amidst the beauties of nature. Never did He dwell for long in cities.
The Call, 138. Realize the healing power of prana. The torpor of life is dispelled in the pure rays of the sunset.
The Call, 254. Our essential being needs the currents of prana.
The tired organism is more affected by outside forces.
Direct your thoughts to the one source of the world's creeds.
The Call, 370. Read, and consider how many times even Christ withdrew into solitude.
Even His Spirit had need of prana....
The Call, 380. It is often better to defer a decision until morning.
The morning is permeated with prana.
After sundown it is harmful to remain tense.
Evening is the time to give.
Morning is the time to receive knowledge.
Leaves of Morya's Garden II,
Illumination, II:I:4. It is good to be in the sunshine, but the starlit sky also brings harmony to the nerves. The moon, on the contrary, is not for us. The moon's pure light affects the prana. The magnetism of the moon is great, but for repose it is not good. Often the moon evokes fatigue, like people who devour one's vital energy. The manifestation of miraculous power increases during moonlight.
A pure prana must respond to the attraction, otherwise there is no miracle but a destruction of the vital treasure trove. While resting it is good to laugh, for the thyroid gland is purified by laughter. To purify the glands is a primary duty.
Leaves of Morya's Garden II,
Illumination, III:VI:15. What external condition is indispensable for quality of labor? Light. Only light makes labor productive and useful. The butterfly can fly until its rainbow pollen is exhausted. Man has the same rainbow force, which absorbs the power of the light by means of photoplasm. The different plasms are intermediaries between the visible and the invisible. Photoplasm, being an emanation of the nervous system, forms a rainbow pollen which absorbs rays of light and conveys them into the nerve channels.
The best connections with the light are obtained in the morning. Therefore, do not shut out the morning light. Work in the light, make decisions in the light, pass judgments in the light, grieve in the light, rejoice in the light. Nothing is to be compared with the light wave. Even the best electricity, even the bluest, yields eight thousand times less light than a ray of the sun.
Illumination, III:II:21. Amidst dusty daisies a lily of Heavenly Purple. It is better to live near the Celestial Flower, for earthly flowers are the sole living bond between Earth and Heaven.
In the creation of floral pollen there are precipitated, as it were, crystals of prana. Without frivolity one can say that in flowers the Heaven settles down upon Earth.
If the Earth were deprived of flowers, half of its vitality would disappear. Just as important is the snow, and like beacons of salvation stand the snowy mountains.
Certain plants exist as reservoirs of prana. The pine trees collect it as if in electric needles. And as a bond between heaven and the depths of earth, the earth is covered with living antennae which gather and preserve the true renewing element of the spiritual tissue.
Community, 182. True, true, true people must settle themselves in tested localities. Even a bear shows greater care in selecting his den. Plants will indicate the better possibilities. Look for cedars and pines, heather and oak, grass and flowers of vivid color. Natural electrification in a locality is necessary. Large, long needles of evergreen are the best condensers of electricity. Heights above eleven thousand feet, devoid of vegetation, provide useful prana.

Leaves Of Morya's Garden Book One The CallInto the New World my first message. You who gave the Ashram, And you who gave two lives, Proclaim. 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.--- The Agni Yoga books can be freely downloaded (available in seven languages): http://agniyoga.org/index.html
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!

Transmission Meditation Groups
It is the creation, in co-operation with the Hierarchy of Masters, of a vortex or pool of higher energy for the benefit of humanity. There are more than 600 Transmission groups in 40 countries worldwide meeting on a regular basis. You may join an existing group in your area, or form your own group by simply inviting a few interested friends to meet with you at least once a week. All you need is the intention to do so and the desire to serve. There is never any fee to participate. http://www.transmissionmeditation.org
An excellent online catalogue and library documents the stages of return to the modern world of Maitreya & the Masters of Wisdom. An ongoing process for which some have been preparing humanity since 1875.

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.
This article was dictated by the Tibetan teacher, Djwhal Khul, in 1934. It is printed in the book, The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, pp. 3-20, published by the Lucis Publishing Company. The need for trained esotericists is more urgent today than it was then.
