Autumnal Equinox -Initiatory event

Carlos et al-
Teachings harmonious with HPB's 'Diagram of Meditation' can be now
found in the Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhist 'Dzogchen' or Great
Perfection teachings. These teachings were super secret before the
late 1970's and now some part of these teachings are available in
book form and from a very few qualified Tibetan teachers. They teach
a 'meditational view' that transcends the cycle of sleep and waking,
life and death etc.
Coincidentally, this Autumn Equinox on Friday coincides with a new
moon and planetary alignment of the sacred planets. This is an
extraordinarily rare event. The teachings regarding this are given
by G. dePurucker and published in "In the Temple:Esoteric Teachings
on the Four Sacred Seasons".
"The Great Ones undertake this fourth initiation in order to have
first-hand experience, in every respect, not only of the Underworld,
but more especially of the Upper Worlds, and of what every Monad
leaving incarnation must undergo in the ordinary course of dying."
There is additional suggestive teachings related to this subject
in "The Doctrine of the Spheres" vol. vii of 'Esoteric Teachings',
p. 47 -- on p. 55 there is a diagram of correspondences between the
globes, zodiacal signs and planets which forms the basis of a truly
Theosophical esoteric astrology, though I do not know of any
theosophical student to have as yet worked this out.......!

origination, just as understanding the dependent origination allows
us to expand consciousness.
