Re: Theos-World Todays Question?

Dear Gary & Rudy:
This is my conjecture:
I see the concept that Gary brought up is specifically on Atma-
Buddhi, the DUAD spiritual universal principle. On its OWN plane,
it is beyond karma and is not conscious of the lower planes. I
think this is an important point in Theosophy because this concept
separates Theosophy from and many other psuedo traditions. The
quote that comes to mind is from the Gita – Having pervaded this
whole universe with one fragment of Myself, I remain. ...
In contrast, the quote from the Transactions is on Atma - Buddhi -
Higher Manas, the Spiritual Ego TRIAD. They are close but not
exactly the same. In a way, the Higher Manas is the link between
the duad and the lower. In Farthing's When We Die, the chart on the
last page shows, "Universal Principle, World Soul, Individual to
Man only by assimilated part of 5th principle."
