It has been said by Babajee that "only the chela, entranced, can reach to
the normal objective (meaning physical and personal) state of the
Mahatmas". How then about those who live with Them --- whether chelas or
ignorance servants, those who see Them again objectively in Their material bodies?
Unless one regarded the Masters as Spirits the query seems pretty
unanswerable. If the above sentence, on the other hand, relates only to the Mahatmas
at a distance, then the question changes.
(1) When Master orders a chela to precipitate a note or letter in His
handwriting --- because of the intense desire of some one individual to that effect, a
desire or prayer which, according to occult law, the Masters feel, and if the
addressee is worthy, They are bound to notice one or the other --- he gets
according to his deserts. When the Master --- who certainly cannot descend to our
level --- gives such an order to a chela, the latter acts according to the best of his
ability, and if he, in any way, perverts the meaning, so much the worse for that chela and
him or her who troubled the Master with his or her petty worldly affairs. But each
time when the desire for Masters interference is intense and sufficiently pure
(though foolish in Their sight) the Masters sacramental phrase is: Satisfy
So-and-so, --- to the chela.
(2) When the Mahatmas (or my Master for instance [who] appeared to Olcott in America)
appear or manifest Themselves in Their astral bodies, Mayavi-rupa, (the whole of
the fourth, a portion of the fifth and even an emanation from the sixth principle)
it is Themselves, the Masters. Never would an Elemental dare
(if the creature were an intelligent being, which it is not) assume Masters
form. Those who say it blaspheme. They lower the powers of the Masters and
Their sanctity, and moreover they have no idea of what an Elemental really means.
Perhaps they think of the Elementaries at the Seances, who clothe themselves out of
human reflections and the images in the brains of those present. These could produce
a sorry caricature of one of the Masters, were they in presence of a strong medium who had
see Masters portraits --- but even then the fraud would be soon detected.
(3) When one sees a Master clairvoyantly, and when the seer is pure and worthy
of the blessing, his desire is sure to have attracted that Masters attention, and it
is then Himself. To produce the vision clairvoyantly, whether subjective or even objective,
the Master has to make a very slight effort indeed (if the person is a clairvoyante, nota
bene --- otherwise it does require a great loss of energy). He has only to send
his astral reflection on the current --- that is thrown like a bridge between the
Seer and the Master he thinks of --- (not on a ray of light but on the akasic cosmo-magnetic
fluid or wave, at the command of every Mahatma or great Adept).
There are hundreds of things missing or incomplete in ---- ---- (3). The teachings were given by Mahatma K. H., a few letters
written by Himself, others precipitated by his chelas. The mistakes made, whether
through the fault of the precipitators or by others, have been and will be
gradually explained and corrected.
(4) In case of ordinary persons who will themselves out of their physical bodies, the
astral form whether it becomes objective or remains subjective (which depends on
the psychic constitution of that person) is composed of the third and second principles
--- the fluidic perisprit that every human (or even animal) being has inside
himself. The linga sharira proper cannot be moved until death, for it is part and
parcel of the second or life principle, Jiva. When C. saw B. so plainly, and
he wrote to her that he had been thinking intently of her at the time, it was his astral
body materialised in Akasha, unconsciously to himself, emanating from his lower
principles, that got projected and became visible to C.
