....according to Mr. Massey's philosophical conclusion we
have no God....He is right -- since he applies the name to an extra-

same time, -- impersonal Avalokiteswara.....

Elsewhere the Master amplifies his above comments:

...Avalokita Isvar literally interpreted means "the Lord that is
seen." "Iswara" implying moreover, rather the adjective than the
noun, lordly, self-existent lordliness, not Lord. It is, when
correctly interpreted, in one sense "the divine Self perceived or
seen by Self," the Atman or seventh principle ridded of its mayavic
distinction from its Universal Source -- which becomes the object of
perception for, and by the individuality centred in Buddhi, the
sixth principle, -- something that happens only in the highest state
of Samadhi. This is applying it to the microcosm. In the other sense
Avalokitesvara implies the seventh Universal Principle, as the
object perceived by the Universal Buddhi "Mind" or Intelligence
which is the synthetic aggregation of all the Dhyan Chohans, as of
all other intelligences whether great or small, that ever were, are,
or will be....

...Avalokitesvara is both the unmanifested Father and the manifested
Son, the latter proceeding from, and identical with, the other; --
namely, the Parabrahm and Jivatman, the Universal and the
individualized seventh Principle, -- the Passive and the Active, the
latter the Word, Logos, the Verb....
