  Dear Nigel
  Thank you for your question. 
  Perhaps I should have said that some of the emerging occult schools here in the west that have been strongly influenced by certain Tibetan Schools of Buddhism indicate the importance of intelligent love as a precursor to Atmic comprehension.I ascribe to no school or particular lineage and apologize for any oversimplifications.

May I interject with a question.

You write, "This truth can be seen in some
schools of Buddhism as the unfolding of Atma or Will through Buddhi, 
Higher mind
and Love."

Would you kindly advise which school of Buddhism recognises Atma and 

Thank you

This truth can be seen in some schools of Buddhism as the unfolding 
of Atma or Will through Buddhi, Higher mind and Love. If spiritual 
love is dominate in the life of the advancing student Kundalini in 
its active and most powerful form will spring into activity and rise 
along the etheric spine central channel bringing liberation through 
the higher head centers and Crown or thousand petal lotus. If there 
is not sufficient love developed within the students life the 
infamous kundalini is deflected downward and brings disaster and ruin 
to the unfortunate student. Only Love-Buddhi and a purification of 
the body, emotions and mind can insulate the student from the 
negative side of this this awesome power. The path of discipleship is 
strewn with many skulls of those attempting to speed up or thwart 
this natural evolution or law. It is therefore
