NOTES ON LECTURE BY DR. S.

Ladies & Gentlemen.
Spiritual BROTHERS & SISTERS
The purpose of this meeting is to give you an idea about this new
Mission we start here in West Australia. When I say “Mission”
you don´t have to understand that in the religious idea, but
the Mission means a public contact. In reality you have to know that
since very old antiquity there has existed in the world a spiritual
direction for this world called the Universal Great Brotherhood but
we have the Archives only since the last 35,000 years.
Each 2,000 years on each great epoch the Universal
a new Mission, a new contact with
the public. It means that each 2,000 years the Universal Great
Brotherhood change more or less the manner of approach
to the public, and you understand immediately why, because each 2,000
years the psychology of humanity changes. In ancient times people
needed a different approach than the people of today. For instance,
if we keep only the last great epoch, the last great age, the Piscean
Age, means Christian Age if you prefer to call it so - well these
last 2,000 years were symbolized by a special philosophy of life, a
special philosophy of belief. But today after 2,000 years that the
people have tried to materialise the great lesson of Jesus the
Christ, “Love you one another”, after this 2,000 years
where so many people have tried to have the faith as exemplified by
Jesus of Nazareth, today it is different.
IT DOESN´T MEAN we have realised and that we
have succeeded with the great teaching of Christ, but we are in a new
Age where the people are more critical, more positive, more
scientific, and then the logic with the psychology of the New Age is
different. The human being of today does not accept more the blind
belief. He wants proof, he wants like St. Thomas to touch the mark.
Yes, humanity of today wants a religion, a philosophy more in
contact, more in keeping with his own faculty. The 20th.
century brain has more or less a scientific mind, so we need a
Well, once more the Universal Great Brotherhood
have tried to approach, to be in contact with humanity publicly in
order to give light on the traditional initiation. So it does not
mean that this Mission that we try to start here in Perth is a new
conception. In reality it is the old one, the real one, the only one,
Unite, reunite, religion from the latin “relega”
meaning “keep together”. So it is not a new religion, a
new philosophy, it is the same traditional lesson given with the new
approach, giving more possibility of understanding for the 20th
Nobody has to change, has to convert himself to
something new. He just has to remember the antique lesson. We just
have to analyse deeper the human scriptures, we just have to study
more our own religion and then completely, naturally, logically we
shall make contact one with another, because in the past on the
origin all the religions are the same. They have just changed by
manifestation because in the different times a great teacher has come
always on each great epoch, has symbolised himself in a different
part of the world, and what it was necessary to explain three, four,
five or ten thousand years ago is not a sufficient explanation today.
For instance what is understood by the Hindu, the Chinese is not
understood by the Western World. You see that when some investigators
of the Hindu religion say that the Hindu worships the cow, but in
reality the Hindu does not worship the cow more that the Roman
Catholic worship the sheep with the symbolism of Christ with the
sheep on His shoulder. The sheep is a very
great Symbol. It doesn´t mean that the Catholics worship the
sheep. The symbol would take too long to explain just now but it is
the same way that the Hindu worships the cow. You see we have a very
critical mind in the Western World, people judge too much materially,
they like the proof.
We are looking at the other religion with very great prejudice before
we went to study, but you have to open your mind, not convert, just
study other religions to understand better everything and that other
Human Beings are our brothers. So the teaching given today is the
same as always, but we try to give an explanation – no more in
blind belief, but an explanation, an understanding for the human
being of the 20th Century.
I spoke last week on symbolism, I tried to give a
little light about the graphics in each philosophy and each religion.
For instance, the astrological symbols are very important on each
religion as I have shown you before. The Precession of the Equinox in
apparent movement in each Constellation, and each 2,000 years giving
a new approach we have a new Age of the World. When the Sun was in
Gemini we had the Adamic Epoch, the sign of Adam and Eva. When the
Sun was in Taurus we had the Age of the Bull, and you understand why
in India they still worship the cow, because they have tried to
remain as the antique traditional worshipping in the symbol, have in
a way spiritualised the matter.
It means during 2,000 years when the Sun was in Taurus (the sign of
the Bull) it was not a worshipping of the cow, it was only a symbol
that the sun was in this constellation, and Bull represents the
esoteric teaching that we have understand by the letter. But it was
better to do as the Hindu, spiritualise the matter. It means worship
on the cow than to do the opposite some races have done. It means
they have materialised the spirit
and it is for that Moses when he return from Sinai Mount commanded
“Don´t worship more the Golden Calf”.
When the Sun was in Aries we have the worship of the Lamb, and it was
the epoch where we had to finish with the teaching of the Bull, and
then some people to symbolize that the teaching on the Bull was
finished have introduced toreadors as in Mexico and Spain for the
fighting of the Bull. But today they don´t remember why they
have to kill the Bull. Later on the birthday of Jesus of Nazareth we
have the Sun coming in the constellation of Pisces, and we find the
word ´Fish´ in the Bible many times, and we find
everything in the symbolism of the Fish.
On 21st, March 1948 the Sun entered the sign of
Aquarius (the point of the vernal equinox). The Sign of Aquarius
represents The New Age and we have as the new symbol, the Holy
Chalise, The Sacred Vase, the Grail from which is pouring the holy
water. It is the symbol of transmutation characteristic of the union
between Science and Philosophy, and we see today in Science a little
bit more philosophy, and in philosophy a little bit more Science. We
start today to study the antique scientifics point of view. For
instance when we are thinking about the atomistic force, about the
atomic disintegration, relativity of space and time, magnetism and of
the scientific explosion, these are not in reality. Now for the
Western World, not new for the Eastern World.
We find the problem of the relativity of space and time, trisection
of the angle; problem of mathematical and physical, the problem that
we regard as something new today, something more advanced in the
Western World, but we know in the Eastern World it is not new. We
know it is not new for the Eastern World because of the revelations
about these subjects in Hindu books thousands and thousands years
old. Kapila the great philosopher who lived 3800 years before Christ
has written something about the relativity of space and time. [In]
The book´s Vaisheshika, Kananda deal with the problem of the
relativity of space and time. The Kalpa, distance the atom keeps to
go through his own space. It means therefore that if the Hindu has
made a unity of times, the Kalpa distance of the atom in his own
space, they must know the time and space of the atom and that kalpa
exist 25, 30, 35.000 years ago, and we just start to talk about the
atom in Western World.
Don´t think that with this little explanation I give you that I
try to convert you on Hinduism. I am not Hindu, Brahamin or Buddhist,
but the progress in the comfort of the material life that we have
made in the Western World has cut the possibility of progress in the
spiritual way. It is not a fault, just a fact to consider. All the
time taken to perfect the matter and to made more complication of the
theory. The Hindu in the meantime has not progressed far materially,
but in spiritual subjectivity (in reality) the Hindu finds progress
If we are thinking only about the Chinese, thousands and thousands of
years ago they knew about powder for guns, but they never employed
powder for that purpose – they made fireworks. They did not use
powder for gunpowder as we have done in the middle ages. In Byzance
they discovered the locomotive system – the possibility for
locomotion of the engine but they never applied it because they
realised it would have many consequences with a possible very bad
effect on the minds of the people.
We realise today that with all the conflict etc.
we feel we are in a change of epoch, but it does not give us peace.
Peace we find more in places where they don´t have the comfort
of modern life, railways, radio, aeroplanes – nothing, but they
just try to attain perfection in the spiritual way. Only one person
has tried in the modern world to do
something in this line and that is Mahatma Gandhi. I am not a
disciple for Gandhi, I don´t try to explain his teaching of the
Ahamsa doctrine, non-aggression, but I just quote the example.
We talk about Astrology and always we have the defect to fail to
realise exactly the contact that exists between the Star and the
Human Being. Always people have tried very hard to realise how we can
be governed by the Star. Well I have to tell you that we are not
governed by the Star. In reality we are the Star. Yes, we have to
understand this. If you keep a Sun system and if you keep an atom you
have exactly the same vibration, and same movement. I am not the
first to talk about that. Pascal in his treatise talks of the proton
and electron around the atom of the Solar System. We are an
extraction, an emanation of these, i.e. we stand between the
Macrocosm and the Microcosm.
Well, the Sun and the 7 planets are like the
proton with the electron around, and we understand we are at the same
time in the progression in emanation to the great from the atom,
avatars of a sun system. Just between the Macrocosm and the
Microcosm, just between the two effects, because we are in position
from one and position from the other. You understand we are
composition of atoms, millions of atoms make this physical body, but
millions of this physical body make the one. You know we are a
composition of mineral salt. Well what are the planets? Composition
of mineral salt, and we start to study metabolism in medicine. It
means that today we are a composition of metals – are made from
portion of a planet, and you remember the quotation from the Bible –
God from the salt of the earth have made a body and in the nostril of
this body He has placed [scurril]
- breath giving man his life, First man, Adam. The first man came
from the ground. It means we are a part of this planet, and the
planet is a part of other planets, from other Stars.
We are not governed by the Stars, we are the Stars themselves. How
can we be affected by the Stars? You can understand very easily. A
child living with the mother, father and family is not exactly his
mother, father and family, but he is affected by the contact with
them. What exists in the family is the example for the child. All the
friends and enemies of the family are the friends and enemies of the
child. When children see discussion, animosity, love, hatred between
some members of the family they are affected by the contact, in the
same way that the “animosity” between two Stars gives an
effect by the contact.
So it doesn’t mean we are governed by those
Stars. They don’t impose us to be
like themselves. They just give an impulse, and we can change the
impulse if we want to. It is not a question to believe or not believe
in Astrology. We don’t need to follow
the chart, but we can be guided by it. It is the same as the Captain
of a ship. He has a chart which indicates to him the currents, the
reefs etc. and from this charts he guides his vessel.
Well, in the same way the astrological chart
gives you the “current of the atmosphere” Tells you were
are the rough places for you, the good moment or the accident, but
you don’t need to accept
it. You just now there is something to escape from if you wish to do
so, but you have to move your ship, you have to change the course you
Well, this way, that in reality is faithand wisdom
is the way we can change, change the direction by the two polarities
which exist in everyone and whish symbolize this Age, the Aquarian
Age. The Water Carrier with the big vase, which in the graphics is
represented by the two lines
mean Positive and Negative. It is the Age were Man (the positive)
and Woman (the negative) work together, the combination of Science
and Philosophy, Faith and Reason Intuition and Analysis, Study and
We need to have Faith to change the mountain. With the Faith we don’t
have to be under the influence of the planet, with the Faith we can
move the hills. “With the Faith you can change the mountain”
said Christ. Yes, you can do miracles like Him and more said Jesus of
Nazareth. We need to change our ship by knowledge if we don’t
have the Faith, and for that the Universal Great Brotherhood each
time tries to give those important teachings. How to escape from the
Zodiac? How to escape from this Stellar influence? Well, we know we
are a composition of the planets. We know each planet has a
reflection in our body. We start to learn about the endocrinal glands
– medical science is studying today the importance of the
We have 7 important glands, and the perfect balance of those 7 glands
gives us perfect balance in the physical and psychological life. The
psychological effect. The balance or equilibrium of the body is
affected by the psychological state.
According to the grey matter, according to the density of the
protuberances in the brain it gives as such and such a predisposition
and possibility. This endocrinal science that we have in medicine
today is in perfect parallel with astrology, but if we study the
endocrinal glands we can see the emanation of these glands more or
less in contact with some planets.
These 7 glands (Adrenal, Prostatic, Solar Plexum,
Cardiac, Pharynx, Cavernous, Pineal Body) these 7 different plexus, 7
different nervous centres are the base of all the comportment that we
have in this life. They are exactly the same
centres that the Yogis call Chakras, and the great Gurus, Great Sages
of Antique India have taught since thirty five or forty five thousand
years ago. Yes we have 7 Chakras, 7 centres, those nerve-fluidic
centres because they are an amalgamation of nerves, the emanation of
which makes a special force, an animal magnetism. We know we have
something else, positive physical body, emanation, vibration that
gives us sympathy or antipathy, love or hate, contact between one
human being and another, healing power and different faculties.
Our glands are exactly in vibration with the planets. It means that
if we take one of these plexus and measure the emanation of it, it is
exactly the same in the spectography as a planet. Therefore the
Plexus giving nervous force and the planet giving vibration are in
connection, contact, living together, and each planet of the
traditional system is in accord with one of the traditional plexus.
You see we are not governed by the Stars or planets, but are in very
near contact one with another and each living together.
The system of Yoga tries to give equilibrium, to
Realise the union of the Plexus and the Planet. It means that the man
can realise by the concentration and some special exercises, can
realise he is part of the oneness, of the world. It means he is YUG
which means UNION. Without Yoga it means that when we are searching
we don’t quite know what we are searching for. We try to
analyse. IF WE CUT SOMETHING we don’t see the inside, we
see the outside of the inside. We are
cutting, but in reality we are not penetrating, not YUG. We try to
assimilate an object, not only to feel, smell or see, but to identify
the object. That is the meaning of the word YUG. The day we can
interpenetrate not only the planet or plexus but everything in life
we have perfect understanding of everything.
The parallel exists between the planets and the human being. Gives us
to understand we are part of this great Universe, and it is
impossible that some people can be saved and others lost, as is
thought in some religions. God, and we have the defect to give God a
personality, we put Him in the third person when we say ‘God’
-Well we say God has to be just. He is justice Himself. Everywhere
omnipotent- in everything. It is impossible that ‘God’
make a judgment about what is good and what is bad. We must realize
we are a part of the Great All. We must identify ourselves and
interpenetrate everything in order to realise God in each moment of
We see better if we study a little bit, if we study a little about
Astrology and Yoga. We see better the relationship between the Human
Being and the Big Universe. We are just between the Macrocosm and the
Microcosm. We have to make the UNION between the two. Have you
realised for instance that the heart pumps 650.000 gallons of blood
every year? So long as we let the heart go mechanically then we are
living materially, then we don’t make a work and that is the
reason why we cannot escape from the influence of the planet, from
the influence which destroys us. In reality we have to prove on the
whole universe if we want to be a perfect creation of God, we have to
prove our superiority in showing we are not influenced by Astrology,
by the Star, but we can escape from the influence, we can escape from
this struggle of life that exists everywhere and which can destroy us
for 20, 30 50 or 100 years.
Yes, I have said many times that we have to live
for 250 years, and I tell you again for the simple reason that
everything in creation has to live 10 times the length of time
required for making the skeleton. For instance the long bones of a
dog take 1 year therefore the span of life for a dog is 10 years. The
elephant 15 years for the skeleton so his life in 150 years, the
Human Being 25 years so his life is 250 years. We are not living 250
years generally because we destroy ourselves. We don’t want to
escape from the influence of the Stars, from
our own influence of the Zodiac in the mind.
We are prejudiced about this and that, about race, nationality,
religion etc, etc. we don’t want also to REALISE, we destroy
ourselves living against the natural low.
The Yogis of India for many centuries have found a method of escaping
from this destruction, have found a method whereby they can keep the
body in perfect condition. One method is to stop the breathing
because the heat created by the function of the lungs gives an excess
of work on the blood, and it is for that I have called your attention
to the 650.000 gallons the heart has to pump every year. If we can
stop not only the lungs, but the systole and diastole (pumping) from
the heart we can give rest. That is what we are doing in the caves in
Tibet. Stopping the breathing, stopping the heart.
Generally it is not believe in the Western World, but since the last
few years in America this experience of rest from breathing has been
given in the medical service in America. Dr Brach in 1947, with 14
cases of very advanced tuberculosis tried to stop the breathing of
the patients. In some hospitals in America they have a special room
as the patients don’t have to breathe. It means the lungs rest
during a period of time, very little time of course – but just
enough to give the possibility of the lungs to rest in order to
create new energy for the cure of tuberculosis. Dr. Brach saved 6
people from the 14 for his first experiment. It was a very nice
You can realise if science make a special management to give rest for
the lungs, what is the possibility with the Yoga system. Yoga does
not need a special apparatus, does not need to wait for T.B. but
gives to everybody a system of natural law to give better balance of
the body which gives a new psychology.
A further experiment carried out in Rome in 1949, gave the
possibility with certain friction to see through a wall - like
television. I am talking about medical experience, scientific fact in
1947 and 1949. Well these experiences, little by little, month by
month, every year makes an advancement, but in Reality what they try
to do is to form YUG, that teaching of thousands and thousands of
years ago. They come back on the YUG system, giving us the
possibility of living in perfect Harmony.
You have to remember that to be a Yogi you don’t
have to be a Hindu. A Yogi is not a special Indian. Yogis lived
before the people of India. India is the last spot where Yoga remains
in the 20th
century. Yoga does not mean Hindu philosophy. Not more Eastern than
Western. Yoga is not a cult, not a religion, not a worship. It is a
physical-psychological system. It is a method that gives you a
possibility to physically and psychically accomplish a perfect
mastering of the body and mind. We realise in the mastering of the
body and mind we can really change the world and there we come on the
great fact in the “Psychology of the New Age”. The
benefit of the individual to give his service for this New World.
You have read I am sure the prophecy of the Pyramid. You have read we
are in the end of time. It is not the end of time but the end of one
epoch. Still the destruction i.e. possible not only because of the
atomic bomb but because the human being of today in living so far
from the natural law. We understand this perturbation of humanity can
make a disturbing vibration in the universe, and by this vibration
there can be created a desintegration of vibration from another
zodiacal constellation which could destroy our planet.
Yes, the planet can be destroyed if the people
does not realise the mission they have to accomplish. I don’t
want to be a pessimist and proclaim that the planet will be
destroyed. I believe in humanity. The U. G. B. will be no more an
institution by name, but by fact. We begin to establish the Universal
Great Brotherhood in Perth because Perth is a very important spot.
People have been training here since last year for the work they have
to do for the future, and if I come back in Perth again this year, it
is for a reason.
I like to call your attention to the 30 degree
parallel north. In Mexico a
long time ago, there was a very magnetic spot of great spiritual
importance. Still today there remain some temples.
30 degree North, Canary Islands,
(the most northerly). Here are some secret Temples from Atlantis, and
it is here that live people who speak a language of their own, not
understood, but surmised to be from the Atlantean era. Though not
Mongolian, it is very like it and contains 19 declinations.
30 degrees north, Cairo,
the secret of the Pyramids. Underground temples between the Pyramid
and Sphinx where the real initiations took place.
30 degrees North, Lha-Sa,
(Capital of Tibet). There are two very important holy buildings.
Palace of the Dalai-Lama, the Po-pa-la
built in the rock, - eight or nine floors, but underneath the palace
is the secret temple. The monastery where lives 25,000 monks who
repeat a special vibration during 24 hours.
30 degrees North, Ganges Island,
(North Pacific). Very important not because of the sacred association
of the name, but because we find still some very important temples
underground, maybe from the time of the Mu continent, 100,000 or
200,000 million years ago.
You see these 5 important spots are all on the same line. Well, I
give you that just for your meditation, and I ask you to remember to
look now on the 30 degrees parallel South. Very near is the city of
Perth in Western Australia.
The traditional force, the electro magnetic place of the world is
changing; it changes on each great epoch, and the electro dynamic
force of each spot makes the attraction of the Yogis, the Rishis, the
Mahatmas, the great Sages of the world who have the spiritual
direction of the world.
In each great epoch we have such a sanctuary in different parts of
the world. Tibet was the sanctuary of the last epoch. Today we have
the sanctuary in South America, and the next civilization shall be in
People willing or not, it must be so.
I hope you shall be from the vanguard to establish the spiritual
direction of the world. The first missionaries for the new
civilization of the World.
PEACE WITH YOU
