On June 3, 1960, the ascended master El Morya announced an unprecedented dispensation from the Karmic Board: “A mighty Temple of Victory is to be built in this nation for all mankind, dedicated to the Presence of Almighty God. It shall be called ‘I AM’ the Temple of Life’s Victory”—the “first temple of the Great White Brotherhood known to the outer world since Atlantean days.”
The pattern for this magnificent, vast temple was lowered into the etheric realms of earth, but it requires the acceptance of the gift and the full appreciation of its significance by the sons and daughters of God before it can be externalized in the physical plane.
In announcing this dispensation, El Morya said:
By the authority of the great Karmic Board and in the name of beloved Helios and Vesta the following grant is given to the mankind of earth—
The earth has been blessed by the presence of a mighty number of advanced souls, avatars and divine personages through the ages, manifesting as cosmic teachers, founders of great religions and revelators of divine truth, including the rather universally acknowledged Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha and Mohammed as well as many other magnificently God-endowed beings sent to earth by the Eternal Father for mankind’s enlightenment and blessing. Wholly unaware is the mass-mind still of the proper veneration and allegiance they ought to pay to the supreme God, the Eternal Father, their personal individualized God Presence “I AM!”
Therefore, to the present day confusions abound, allegiance is divided and strife continues concerning the holy purposes avowed by men universally as the will of God, the wisdom of God, et cetera. Likewise, in the arena of politics and government, the ruling personages of the world continue to engage in so-called diplomatic exchanges—some necessary and some not—which keep the status quo of the nations in a continually disturbed state. Without attempt to fix blame, we who know the divine law because we have syncretized ourselves with it, make certain recommendations in connection with this cosmic grant which is given to Earth by the same loving Father who long ago sent forth blessed Jesus in the land of Judea and the city of Bethlehem to make his first world advent. The Father has declared to us “I AM” in heaven (the divine consciousness) and all is right with the world when they attune constantly with my goodwill!
Therefore, because all religious strife and intolerance is incompatible with God’s will; because wars and warfare are diametrically opposed to the purposes of the Prince of Peace we offer a gift to earth which is set forth below:
When peace and harmony are achieved religious-wise and secularly among the family of nations, in the whole body politic, to be just it must be under the direction of Almighty God, and when that occurs it will be a magnificent victory for both God and men! Therefore, the grant to mankind from the ascended host is to give to the world a genuine outer focus of the Great White Brotherhood without concealment or secrecy! A mighty Temple of Victory is to be built in this nation for all mankind, dedicated to the presence of Almighty God! It shall be called
“I AM” the Temple of Life’s Victory
(Remember Solomon builded him a house and that name is clearly seen to mean Solomon—“solar-man”: Christ-illumined men full of the sun of divine wisdom)
The pattern for this vast temple is now being lowered from the blessed Silent Watcher into the etheric realms and the action will be completed by July 1st—in time for a celebration of our cosmic declaration of independence for this blessed earth from all imposition of tyranny or bondage! That is what we are doing—regardless of human appearances. We are affirming the freedom of earth by establishing the first temple of the Great White Brotherhood known to the outer world since Atlantean days.
What is the meaning of this whole dispensation? Beloved ones, Saint Germain shall describe this blessed building to you in next week’s Pearl—together with a more complete explanation thereof. Meanwhile I want you to take stock with me of how blest we are to secure this joint dispensation. First, an opportunity to heal the “laggard” breach of discord, and then the glory of Victory’s Temple on earth where our communion can be established right “through the veil” and wherein the radiance of heaven can begin to produce upon earth that scientific, spiritual and political life which represents the will of God as a glorious opportunity for all to share in building the golden age.
That now the door is open is the significant factor!
Description of the temple
In the next Pearl of Wisdom, Saint Germain gave the following description of this temple:
How precious a dispensation beloved Helios and Vesta have given! What a cosmic victory is sent to earth! All who grasp the significance of this grant and are serving as channels must sense that victory which is literally flooding the world and all mankind. This is the long-called-for light of a thousand suns from the radiance of millions of Cosmic Christs who now in answer to your calls have descended and will remain until life’s perfection is restored to all. While this action for mankind’s benefit goes on right now it is more or less unspeakable to the outer world, but, God be thanked, the second phase of the dispensation can be given recognition in the outer world and can be used as a focal point for the expansion of not only our outer action but also the enlightenment of all our chelas and those we will later draw out to serve the expansion of the light in this very day!
Surely if temporal government can demand of mankind the material substance to “arm the earth” with instruments of destruction, the lovers of peace and freedom who are multitudinous in every land—will respond to the great privilege of “laying many stones” in this outer temple designed in such lofty spiritual grandeur at inner levels! When it is complete I am planning on giving my greatest gift to America and the world, for therein I am going to actually anchor the full focus of my freedom flame! Do you see now why I have labored so long for America’s “freedom” so that the whole world may kindle its own fires of freedom on America’s torch, that from the great heart of its people grace may flow to all the family of nations—for all are the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.
The first floor of the temple (and there are three above the earth level) is Victory’s Temple. It is the largest, and is completely circular, surrounded by huge Corinthian columns on the outside and granite artwork as lovely as the Taj Mahal itself, all within the beauty of its towering columns. Around the circular amphitheater will be glorious paintings of the great chohans themselves and also including beloved Jesus and Mary, the archangels and many others of the familiar members of the ascended host. Services here will be open to all mankind without restriction as to creed or race in keeping with the traditions of the Brotherhood.
The second floor is dedicated to the “Holy Spirit” and as such is an “upper room” vast though it may be, dedicated to the magnificent Lord the Maha Chohan. Here the most sacred rituals shall be performed, including those which are calculated to represent the “ceremonial action” of this age over which I now preside. The anchoring of the “freedom flame” here is a gift of divine wisdom! A huge focus of “a snow-white dove” will also be anchored in this temple within which the Masters of Light shall precipitate several sacred tokens and “foci” of the sacred fire to assist in amplifying the action of the Holy Spirit within the lives of mankind—and especially those who study the laws of the sacred fire and sincerely seek to apply themselves to the unfolding of that flame of God life within the chalice of their own sacred heart!
The third floor is closed to all except the most advanced chelas and is under the direction of the great ascended master Serapis, whose stricter disciplines lead to the freedom of the ascension! It is circular, too, but smaller than the other temples. We expect to permit here the use of an ascension chair—located directly above the freedom flame focus on the second floor which is, in turn, above Victory’s altar on the first floor! This temple is strictly dedicated to the ascension and is for the use of those nearing that achievement. In this temple we will actually step through the veil in our tangible bodies and assist in completing the earthly victory of our most faithful chelas as we did in the Cave of Symbols and other sacred retreats. Thus this circular pyramid of victory honors the name of God by a means whereby the various stages of evolution may come into a practical focus which will not be too sharply delineated so as to separate men from one another, except to inspire them and elevate them by world-renowned beauty and the vibratory action of the great Brotherhood itself as it now moves once again into fiery world action in the outer visible unconcealed realm!
Further descriptions may be given from time to time, but we are not presently so concerned with the form as with the gift of the temple. Its approval is God’s gift from our realm of light. Its creation, then, is a cosmic gift externalized by the acceptance of mankind. We will assist in its externalization from time to time but the law requires that you balance our gift by serving the law of your being, and calling forth your own God perfection while doing also as we do and assisting all life to find their own victory!
Physical manifestation of the temple
The design for this temple came from Mighty Victory. The temple exists in all its pristine beauty in the etheric realm and may be visited by unascended mankind while they sleep. We yet await the full manifestation of this dispensation through the physical building of the temple.
