Meditations and Rituals
“Meditation is not a doing, but a happening”
Meditations and Prayers
Meditation is the basis for all inner growth. The silent growth of the Soul happens in moments of silence. There are many kinds of meditation.
This section contains simple instructions along with the full text of the morning and evening meditations and prayers as practiced by the members of the WTT. This section also describes meditations that can be practiced on regular astrological events: Full moon and New moon meditations, Dhanishta meditations, and Global Prayer for Peace.
Prayers are direct invocations of Master. They serve the purpose of submitting the disciple's mind to the Master's presence. They form the channels of force from the etheric plane, in space, around the earth, into the etheric body of the disciple.
Working with the occult meditations enables psychological adjustments, which would lead to occult experiences. They would ultimately lead to experiencing the Divine.
This section contains additional meditations and prayers that can be practiced by the aspirants: the Healing Meditation, Occult Meditations, the Great Invocation, and Prayer of the Year.
Meditation is not a doing, but a happening, a being, in order to be receptive to higher impulses. To trace back the source of thought and to investigate, “Who am I?“ is the basic meditation. We face many obstacles in our journey due to our habits and thought patterns.
The presence of a teacher causes the necessary transformations in the seeker to remind us and express ourselves as immortal, divine beings of Light.
The solstices and the equinoxes are the four most important festivals of the annual cycle. The Hierarchy wants that we follow the festivals that are in nature.
A ritual is the higher order imitated in the material plane. It works as sacrament to change and extend the nature of man. A rhythmic life is a pre-requisite of a ritualist. Genuine rituals relate to the death of personality and to the birth of consciousness. Rhythm leads to ritual and ritual leads to the hidden secrets, which reveal the Light of Truth. All rhythms and rituals finally aim at transforming the matter of our body in a natural way in order to enable a faster development.
Initiates use rituals to replenish their will and thus to be able to conduct great tasks in an effective manner.
Hymns and Suktams
Suktams are Su-Ukthas, meaning the well uttered ones. The Veda suktams are good utterances. They are observed in the Nature and uttered forth as such by the Vedic seers. The Vedic seers knew “How it is and how it is becoming”. The becoming of the creation upon the background of “BEING” is a process of Sound and Light. The Sound uttered forth in creation resulting in the universe was well realised by the seers. The process of experience of Sound from Silence is a variety. These varieties are expressed out as suktams.
