NOTES ON LECTURE BY DR. DE LA
The Aquarian Age is going to see the fulfilment of the Christian
teachings as given by the great Nazarene Master. For this there are
strict rules to be followed.
l.- Love God with all
our heart, soul, mind, strength.
Then if any capacity for love remains.
2.- Love our
“Brother” as ourself.
This is not only for our own nationality, culture or religion. Our
love must be for all. It is not the sentimental love; it is the
Christian love. “If you cannot hate father, mother, wife and
children…. You cannot be My disciple. “Take up thy cross
and follow Me”. Remember the answer of the Christ to those who
asked for time first to mend nets, and to bury the dead.
It is hard to understand how we must give everything to the Divine.
In India we see some who give all worship to the Divine. We say
“fanatics”. But there is something in India which is
We notice in Sanskrit writing that there is always a line _________
Thus we can make no mistakes. If we think of the
Divine, we place it ABOVE the line,
if of the material thing, we place it BELOW.
Thus we never write ABOVE the line. The people write down,
that is they try to express Spirit on the Material Plane. If they try
to write a Holy word, there is an indication above
The sacred fire is linked with the saying, “You
must be born again”, for by the holy, inner fire must come
transmutation which makes a new the whole “man”.
In India there are 4 castes. This system we criticize. In the
exoteric life we must try to suppress Caste. We must work for
But the 4 castes represent all evolution.

priesthood of Initiation.
the warrior Caste, who forgot the service of the Priesthood, and
tried to attain their end by force.
The traveler for the wealth of this world.
labouring Caste, the slave, the masses, the proletariate
More or less each 500 years, (the quarters of the
2000 years of a sign), represents the
evolution of one of these four Castes.
Thus all humanity is under the principle of these Castes.
Christ’s birthday came when the Masses
were the movers. He tried to forget all
the division of Caste, and tried to symbolize the next one,
There is some secret in the teaching of Jesus. When John asks a
question, Jesus says, “some more to tell that they are not yet
ready for”… “no pearls before swine”…..
Thus about the year
500 sees the last of the Priesthood,
when the last school of wisdom shut the door, and the church sought
temporal energy and power.
From the 6th
Century the Church suppresses the belief in Reincarnation, and the
year 1000 sees the climax of dictatorship, the soldier Caste.
But 500 years later,
1492 Christopher Columbus, 1498 Vasco da Gama,
the sailor, shipping, and commerce dominate the scene. Business and
wealth is the order of the day, the
Another 500 years
later, our own epoch to the year 2000 is the day of the people, the
masses. In our politics it is the
“people”, democracy, socialism, etc… But at the
same time preparation is being made for the return of the great
Priesthood, the Brahmin…
However, the Hindu has kept the letter but has forgotten the spirit.
Thus each 2000 years we see the four Castes in
humanity. Here is a truth to investigate, for it is always so. The
command to forget everything and to love God
above all else does not apply to this present age. We have our nice
churches, our glass of beer, the Trots, and God once a week. The rest
of the time we forget Him. We are not in Union.
Yoga? The world does not want Yoga.
We interpret “Thou
shalt not kill” as “Thou
shalt not kill man”. We kill
animals. But surely this is killing; in Genesis we read that God has
herbs for food and not the flesh of animals, Ch 1: 29-31.
day God made the grass, the herb and the tress bearing fruit, for the
nourishment of man.
Note the difference on the 5th
day, two days later… (a day is a symbol meaning epoch,
3,328,000,000 a day of Brahm). The 5th
day he made fish and birds only.
day God made the cattle and the swine.
Thus there are 3 categories:
day.. birds and fish.
But notice again what was created on the 6th
day. Beside cattle o swine. Remember also there was another creation
Thus we are from the same group, from the same culture. We are not
the same as fish,
but we are the same as cattle.
Cattle eat only herbs. If we eat blood, there is in the blood the
soul; and for each soul we eat, there shall be asked back a Soul.
Thus it becomes a crime. A crime made on a carrot
is different from a crime made on a cow.
We are sorry for people who want to be Christian
and yet who eat meat. Vegetarians do
not, but Meat eaters do
get toxic complaints.
So if we cat a corpse, (cow), we cannot call ourselves Christian. It
is better to say, “Christian life is too difficult, too hard”,
just as we say, “Yoga is too hard for me”.
There must be light on the Christian discipline to
be followed. It is best to forget all names… Christian,
Mohametan etc… The Koran, Ch. 2 verse 260 says, “Thou
shalt not eat animal”. Ch 1:verse
168, “Thou shalt abstain from wine”.
The Buddhist and Hindu teachings also teach the
same – eat no meat.
Of course we still have the right to eat
the meat, but why keep the name of Christian?
The new Psychology teaches us to have courage and to express
