It was a summer day in Cambridge, Mass. in 1987, with people from everywhere around the world strolling through Harvard Square, reading on benches, or playing chess. Hankering for a new book, I knew where to go. As I entered the only esoteric bookstore in Cambridge, a wall of blue caught my eyes and like a bee to a flower I was beckoned. All of the blue books were by one author, all had the same plain blue cover, all felt delightful in my hand. A sweetness ran through my heart, light and excitement billowed in my mind and I went home with Treatise on White Magic, the Way of the Disciple by Alice A. Bailey. That moment has led to everything else of my spiritual journey as a student, a teacher, author, and meditator.
The Master Djwal Khul began to telepathically communicate with Alice A. Bailey in 1919, but she did not start to take the dictation that became the books until 1925. This unusual relationship lasted through the turmoil of World War II, the rise of socialism and capitalism, and the spread of the principles of Theosophy and Anthroposophy through the western world. The last book created through this telepathic rapport was in 1949.
I bow to the Master DK as a cherished teacher. The Trans-himalayan philosophy has opened many other subjects for me, for example astrology, Buddhadharma, and physics. The teachings given by DK support me in a deeper exploration or cross-referencing type of synthesis with these subjects. I am forever grateful and offer any benefit generated by my teaching and writing back to the Master and his work.
There is a portion of the Bailey/DK writings that were pertinent in their time and are often misread now. That is true of many writings penned in humanity’s challenging hours. DK wrote to inspire, explain, and educate. The Bailey/DK books still are timeless sources of that. It has been my joy to be a student, to lead groups in discussion, and to create curriculum and classes on and born from the Trans-himalayan Wisdom and the teachings of the Master DK.
Please take note of the 2013 Winter Free Online Lecture Series with DK and the Trans-himalayan teachings in mind.
