Then also repeated effort in practice of the shedy disciplines including right ethical living, thinking in ways consistent with the teaching, turning the heart of devotion to god instead of loving worldly things and ideals and meditating on the Divine in the form as pictured and then as abstractly defined; and finally as source of one’s very self. So the repeated effort is in stripping away the delusions and obstructions and the meditation is to concentrate exclusively on the truth of existence and achieve supreme peace (HTP).

Onward! The SEVEN COMPANIONS of the SOUL-the planetary spirits-guard the secret key which locks the past and opens the future. Let your efforts be aimed at the CROWN of the MASTER.”
