Statement by Djwhal Khul

Extract from a Statement by the Tibetan
(Djwhal Khul) in August 1934

Suffice it to say, that I am a Tibetan disciple of a certain degree, and this tells you but little, for all are disciples from the humblest aspirant up to, and beyond, the Christ Himself. I live in a physical body like other men, on the borders of Tibet, and at times (from the exoteric standpoint) preside over a large group of Tibetan lamas, when my other duties permit. It is this fact that has caused it to be reported that I am an abbot of this particular lamasery. Those associated with me in the work of the Hierarchy (and all true disciples are associated in this work) know me by still another name and office. Alice Bailey knows who I am and recognizes me by two of my names.

I am a brother of yours, who has traveled a little longer upon the Path than has the average student, and has therefore incurred greater responsibilities. I am one who has wrestled and fought his way into a greater measure of light than has the aspirant who will read this article, and I must therefore act as a transmitter of the light, no matter what the cost. I am not an old man, as age counts among the teachers, yet I am not young or inexperienced. My work is to teach and spread the knowledge of the Ageless Wisdom wherever I can find a response, and I have been doing this for many years. I seek also to help the Master Morya and the Master Kuthumi whenever opportunity offers, for I have been long connected with Them and with Their work. In all the above, I have told you much; yet at the same time I have told you nothing which would lead you to offer me that blind obedience and the foolish devotion which the emotional aspirant offers to the Guru and Master Whom he is as yet unable to contact. Nor will he make that desired contact until he has transmuted emotional devotion into unselfish service to humanity - not to the Master.

The books that I have written are sent out with no claim for their acceptance. They may, or may not, be correct, true and useful. It is for you to ascertain their truth by right practice and by the exercise of the intuition. Neither I nor Alice Bailey is the least interested in having them acclaimed as inspired writings, or in having anyone speak of them (with bated breath) as being the work of one of the Masters. If they present truth in such a way that it follows sequentially upon that already offered in the world teachings, if the information given raises the aspiration and the will-to-serve from the plane of the emotions to that of the mind (the plane whereon the Masters can be found) then they will have served their purpose. If the teaching conveyed calls forth a response from the illumined mind of the worker in the world, and brings a flashing forth of his intuition, then let that teaching be accepted. But not otherwise. If the statements meet with eventual corroboration, or are deemed true under the test of the Law of Correspondences, then that is well and good. But should this not be so, let not the student accept what is said.

Editor Comment

All of the Tibetan's books can be found on line or purchased from Lucis Trust, the publisher. They represent a restatement of the Ageless Wisdom teachings in a language more appropriate for the current stage of humanities spiritual evolvement. In restating these ancient teachings in modern language, he has removed some of the allegorical veils that were present in their earlier statement during the past 4,000 years. Since these teachings are not appropriate for those who have not reached a certain stage of mental development, he has veiled them in a language that will be less appealing to the less intellectually developed segments of humanity.  Study of the books also helps develop the mental body. Since evolution is a sequential process, the development of the mental body must be completed before one can experience moksha or liberation from the wheel of rebirth. Thus, education, as a vehicle to complete the development of the mental body, is equally as important as meditation in the earlier stages of inner growth.

In an earlier incarnation, the Tibetan Master Djwhal Kuhl was Confucius and left the imprint of His thought upon Chinese philosophy which endures to this day (p. 2, Rainbow Bridge 1). As the great teacher Aryasanga, he left many works in Tibet which have influenced an entire culture.

In the 30+ years that I have been studying these books, I have found them to be a very accurate and comprehensive source of information on all aspects of the Ageless Wisdom.
