*In Daylesford lies the New Himalaya Retreat, so named by The Theosophical Fellowship to connect with the present abode of the Lord Maitreya in Shigatze in the Himalayas.
This man spoke of suffering that would stop if desires were controlled and then ceased to exist within the mind of men. He spoke of the little self and the power of the great Self. He spoke of the compassion needed to walk the Path. He spoke of Truth which would make free. He spoke of things unknown to me, yet to be understood, yet to come to pass.
He spoke as if he knew me. He they called the Enlightened One, the Buddha. And He made all things new in me. He told of His Brother, the Buddha to be who would come. He was the Wisdom, His Brother the Love, and one day in another time they would come together.
I remember how He suddenly looked at me, His eyes penetrating mine, and for a moment I whirled into cosmos with planets and stars passing by in a rush. I saw the origin of all things. I felt faint. I felt weightless and breathless.
His eyes then left mine and I recovered. Dazed, I looked about me. No one had noticed anything.
Forever I shall remember this moment when He, the Buddha, the beloved Teacher, looked into my soul and blessed me with the tree of knowledge.
Who am I to receive such a wonder, I do not know. I only know that from that day many desires left me and I became a wanderer, a tale spinner with a purpose, for I decided to walk in His footsteps and so to bless in His Name His children of India with my tales.
For 40 years I have wandered. News has recently reached me that the Enlightened One has left us in death of His earthly garment. Soon I too shall die and meet again the Great One. How I long for that day to come.
Law of Forgiveness – Mercy of God, I have erred. I have learned my lesson. Descend into ... [the problem], and neutralise the negative substance created by my action/s, replacing it with the loving Light of Tara the White.
Most Holy Spirit, which for God permeates all my dark, hidden, and suppressed feelings and thoughts from my past lives and from my present life, touch me and heal me, release me and give me peace from shadows of the past and the present.
Teach me how to forgive myself for errors committed out of ignorance. Let me face my shame and my guilt with strength and courage, and so protect me from influences that I cannot control. In gratefulness, I shall offer my undying loyalty and devotion to you, Holy Spirit, and shall open my heart to you in joy and song, that you may enter into my heart and do with it what you want.
A strong inner conviction that the Lord Maitreya is the Christ Buddha, and that you will serve Him, for in so doing you serve God and your own Soul.
A strong faith that He is all Life and the Spirit of the Earth, and in Him all power, all honour, all glory reside, for He is the Son Who sits at His Father’s right side in Heaven as well on Earth, with all the Sons and Daughters seated there with Him.
A strong love that knows no end and makes you gladly live and die for Him. Whatever He asks of you, you will gladly give, knowing that never would He ask the impossible of you. Never would He act without considering your dharma and karma. Always He would seek to make you forgive yourself and live without guilt and fear.
A strong sense of clarity which is seen in your way of dealing with your fellow beings; which is felt in your home as you bring Him close to the home's hearth; which shows in you giving to God what God must have, and so also giving of yourself to those who need, holding nothing of Him back from any living person who seeks Him.
A strong storehouse of knowledge that enables you to explain to yourself and to others the Law, the Principles, and the Presence of the Lord Maitreya: Who He is, what He does, and how He works to redeem and heal the Earth right now.
