Jesus is in charge of the retreat of the Brotherhood in the Arabian Desert, northeast of the Red Sea. The retreat is in a complex of buildings that were hermetically sealed by the masters before a cataclysm covered them with desert sands. The tops of the buildings are now 125 feet beneath the surface.
Every seven years the International Council of the Great White Brotherhood is held in this subterranean city. The retreat is entered through an opening wide enough to admit cars, which drive down an incline into a parking lot and service area two hundred feet in diameter. When the jaws of the earth close, all that can be seen is desert, with no indication of the location of the retreat.
Descending almost four hundred feet by elevator, we enter a huge chamber with large columns, three hundred feet high and decorated with hieroglyphs. We proceed into an adjoining council chamber two hundred feet square, having a single great column in the center supporting the arched ceiling. At the base of the column inlaid in the floor are the cosmic symbols of the twelve houses of the sun. We note that they are different from the signs of the zodiac currently in use in the outer world. The entire architecture, as well as the interior design of this subterranean city, is of an ancient style resembling that which we think of as Greek and Roman.
As we are shown the marvels of the retreat, we enter the television chamber where there is a large reflector upon which one may observe, by the mere turn of a dial, the activities occurring at any given point upon the globe. In the adjoining radio chamber, completely proofed against sound and vibration, there is an instrument that is used to tune into sounds or conversations occurring anywhere on the planet. Thus, the masters have immediate contact with the activities of the outer world. The master K-17, head of the Cosmic Secret Service, frequents this retreat and uses these instruments to gain firsthand knowledge of the activities of the brothers of the shadow and their plots against individual and national freedom.
There is a chemical laboratory where initiates learn how to counteract germ warfare, poisonous gases and chemicals when such are released on a large scale for controlling the masses. In the cosmic-ray chamber, students are taught the use of the seven rays and how to direct them for the blessing of mankind. In the chambers of art, music and state, new techniques are being developed and will be released for the advancing culture and progressive forms of government that will be used in the golden age. In other chambers, the riches and records of ancient civilizations are kept and will one day be released for the edification and blessing of the people.
