Leaves of Morya’s Garden I (The Call) is the first book from the Agni Yoga Series which is composed of fourteen books. In them is found a synthesis of ancient Eastern beliefs and modern Western thought and a bridge between the spiritual and the scientific. Unlike previous yogas, Agni Yoga is a path not of physical disciplines, meditation, or asceticism—but of practice in daily life. It is the yoga of fiery energy, of consciousness, of responsible, directed thought. It teaches that the evolution of the planetary consciousness is a pressing necessity and that, through individual striving, it is an attainable aspiration for mankind. It affirms the existence of the Hierarchy of Light and the center of the Heart as the link with the Hierarchy and with the far-off worlds. Though not systematized in an ordinary sense, Agni Yoga is a Teaching that helps the discerning student to discover moral and spiritual guide-posts by which to learn to govern his or her life and thus contribute to the Common Good. For this reason Agni Yoga has been called a “living ethics.”Agni Yoga Society, Inc., New York
As you know, I believe in reincarnation, so the next quote from Wikipedia is of interest to me:
“Morya’s earliest notable claimed incarnation is recorded by Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater (from, the source states, their research into the “akashic records” at the Theosophical Society headquarters in Adyar (Tamil Nadu), India conducted in the summer of 1910) as having been the Emperor of Atlantis in 220,000 BC, ruling from his palace in the capital city, the City of the Golden Gates.
“According to the Ascended Masters teachings, some of the later incarnations that Morya is said to have had include:
- Osho along with K.H (Devaraj)
- Melchior (one of the three wise men—the one who gave myrrh to Jesus)
Well, isn’t that special?! Only one niggle: I thought Morya withdrew from incarnation (ascended) in 1898?
The Theosophical Society has much to be proud of, especially their bringing knowledge of the ascended masters to people of the West. But I’m wondering if there isn’t something trying to undermine that knowledge by muddying up the spiritual waters, as it were. Like this one.
We are a gullible lot, so anything foreign sounding gets our spiritual attention. But we have to be discerning. My mother read (almost) all the Alice Bailey books. I had some, too, but I found them to be difficult to digest. I wonder what I’d think of them now that 40 years have past.
In the meantime, I should like to point out a very interesting thing: Morya’s signature…
