Universities of the Spirit
On January 1, 1986, Gautama Buddha announced that he and the Lords of Karma had granted the petition of the lords of the seven rays to open universities of the Spirit in their etheric retreats for tens of thousands of students to pursue the path of self-mastery on the seven rays. Traveling in their finer bodies (the etheric sheath) during sleep, students spend fourteen days at Darjeeling for training on the first ray under El Morya, alternating with fourteen days at the Royal Teton Retreat for training on the seventh ray under Saint Germain until they have successfully passed certain levels of accomplishment in the use of the first and seventh rays.
Then they may go on to receive training under the lords of the second, third, sixth, fourth and fifth rays in that order: Lord Lanto and Confucius at the Royal Teton Retreat (2nd), Paul the Venetian at the Goddess of Liberty’s Temple of the Sun over Manhattan (3rd), Nada at the retreat of Jesus in Saudi Arabia (6th), Serapis Bey at the Ascension Temple, Luxor (4th), and Hilarion at the retreat of Pallas Athena in Crete (5th).
It is the desire of the Great White Brotherhood that through the courses given and the tests passed in meeting the challenges of everyday life as well as through second and third levels of instruction, students will quickly make outer contact with Summit University and attend its halls of learning at the Inner Retreat.
On December 28, 1986, the God Meru encouraged us to follow the path of the lords of the seven rays by choosing to embody the Presence and light of each chohan (i.e., lord) and then the Maha Chohan (the Great Lord who is over the lords of the seven rays, the representative of the Holy Spirit who delivers the initiations of the Third Person of the Trinity to the evolutions of planet earth) in fourteen-day cycles starting January 1, 1987, while attending their universities of the Spirit.
