Shamballa, Sacred Geometry
 and the Science of (Equilibrating) Triangles


"... peace, as the expression of the will of Shamballa, produces balance, equilibrium, synthesis and understanding..."  -EOH 165

"The only place of complete "peace" (the meaning of the word Jerusalem) is Shamballa ... From the standpoint of true esotericism, Shamballa is a place of "serene determination and of poised, quiescent will" as the Old Commentary expresses it." -TSR V, 314

"The Spirit of Peace ... is, in a mysterious sense, the Spirit of Equilibrium..." -ROC 74

"Libra admits the soul into the world centre which we call Shamballa, for it is the polar opposite of Aries which is the place of beginnings. Libra demonstrates the perfect balance of spirit and matter which first came together in Aries." -TSR III, 168


Building a sacred (equi-LIBRA-ted) planet

"I have said earlier that the intersecting energies in the etheric body of the planet are at this time a network of squares. When the creative process is complete and evolution has done its work, these squares will become a network of triangles. Necessarily this is a symbolic way of speaking. In the Book of Revelations which was dictated 1900 years ago by the disciple who is now known as the Master Hilarion, reference is made to the "city which stands four-square." The etheric vehicle of the planet was inherited from a former solar system, with the purpose or intention in view of its transformation into a network of triangles in this solar system.


In the next one of the triplicity of solar systems (the third or last) in which the will of God works out, the etheric body will begin as a network of triangles, but this will be resolved into a network of interlinked circles or of linked rings, indicating the fulfilment of interlocking relationships. In this present system, the result of evolution, as far as the etheric body is concerned, will be the contact established between all three points of each triangle, making a ninefold contact and a ninefold flow of energy; this is consistent with the fact that nine is the number of initiation, and by the time the destined number of disciples have taken the nine possible initiations, this triangular formation of the planetary etheric body will be complete." -TEL 163


Nested Polyhedra

Five cubes can be inscribed in a dodecahedron.

Ten tetrahedra can be inscribed in the dodecahedra, and the volume common to all ten is an icosahedron.

D.K. on Visualization and Imagination

The power to visualise correctly is one definite mode of ascertaining truth or falsity. This is a statement difficult for you to comprehend. Visualisation is literally the building of a bridge between the emotional or astral plane and the mental level and is, therefore, a personality correspondence to the building of the antahkarana. The astral plane, the second aspect of the personality, is the correspondence to the form-building aspect of the Trinity, the second aspect. The creative imagination "pictures a form" through the ability to visualise and the thought energy of the mind gives life and direction to this form. It embodies purpose. Thereby a rapport or line of energy is constructed between the mind and the astral vehicle and it becomes a triple line of energy when the soul of the disciple is utilising this creative process in some planned and definitely constructive manner.

This visualising process and this use of the imagination form the first two steps in the activity of thoughtform building. It is with these self-created forms—embodying spiritual ideas and divine purpose—that the Masters work and hierarchical purpose takes shape. Therefore, my disciples, it is essential that you begin with deliberation and slowly to work in this manner and to use the above information constructively and creatively. The need of the times is increasingly great and the utmost of work and of purpose is desired. -DNA I, 91

Meditation is essentially the science of light, because it works in the substance of light. One branch of it is concerned with the science of visualisation because, as the light continues to bring revelation, the power to visualise can grow with the aid of the illumined mind, and the later work of training the disciple to create is then made possible. It might be added here that the building of the second half of the antahkarana (that which bridges the gap in consciousness between the soul and the spiritual triad) is called the science of vision, because [Page 97] just as the first half of the bridge is built through the use of mental substance, so the second half is built through the use of light substance. -ENA

Imagination is, as you know, the lowest aspect of the intuition, and this fact must be remembered at all times. Sensitivity, as an expression of the astral body, is the opposite pole to buddhic sensitivity. The disciple has purified and refined his imaginative faculties so that they are now responsive to the impression of the buddhic principle or of the intuitive perception—perception, apart from sight or any recorded possible vision. According to the responsiveness of the astral vehicle to the [Page 489] buddhic impression, so will be the accuracy of the "plans" laid for the building of the antahkarana and the visualising of the bridge of light in all its beauty and completeness. -TSR V

All disciples on all these seven rays use the same [antahkarana] building technique of Intention, Visualisation, Projection, Invocation and Evocation, Stabilisation and Resurrection. Of these the first two are uniform in technique for all the rays, but when the stage of Projection is reached, then the ray techniques begin to differ... -TSR V, 501

D.K. on motion on the plane of mind: "Time, literally, the awareness of the form." -CF 1032

[JB] The five physical senses and the brain-mind give us the three dimensions of space.

The intuitive sense, the Heart-Mind, provides us the Fourth Way, as we move into the buddhic experience of the synthetic essence of things, literally, the no-thing all-thing-ness of Life itself. -JB
