Dugpas & Shammars - Commentary by Master KH

As anyone who has been following the events surrounding the TS since last
December, can easily see why there is a serious crisis facing the future of
TS and Theosophy. This crisis is perhaps the most serious in our life times
and is not unlike the Coloumb crisis. Whenever there is a crisis, we all can
see the hidden hand of the Dugpas and Shammars. They have been bent on the
destruction of TS from the early days of TS. Some time ago, I posted a short
message listing some factors to keep in mind to avoid our becoming their
agents unknown to ourselves because their agents would be deluded to believe
they are doing good to the TS and theosophy.

I am quoting below some of the Commentaries by Master KH on the subject of
Dugpas and Shammars.

"It is impossible to worship both sides, - the male and female of nature, -
at once; one or the other must predominate. Only by following the absolute,
sexless Unity, can the white path be trodden. Hence the necessity for
chastity. The occult and the physical must never be mixed up. It is
absolutely necessary to concentrate on one or the other. The tendency
naturally is to Black Magic, and that is why several years of training are
necessary to cut away every sort of prejudice before power can be entrusted
to you. Before you can become an occultist you have to give up every
prejudice, every liking, every feeling of preference for one thing or
another. The adept must entirely separate himself from his personality. He
must say, I am a power! It is easy to fall into Black Magic. A black
magician prepares to do mischief without giving a thought to whether it will
harm others. He is essentially selfish, for he works for a thing he
personally loves. Apparent unselfishness may be really selfishness. A deed
of kindness done with partiality may become evil, viz., by stirring up
animosity in the minds of others. It is necessary when acting to lose all
sense of identity and become an abstract power. There is good and evil in
every point in the universe, and if one works however indirectly for one's
own partiality, one becomes to that extent a black magician. The opposite of
Justice is partiality. When a man uses the powers of Nature
indiscriminatingly, with partiality, and with no regard to justice, it is
Black Magic. But to help a sick person is not Black Magic, but no personal
preference must guide you. Like a blackleg, a black magician acts on certain
knowledge. Magic is power over the forces of nature, viz., the Salvation
Army by hypnotizing people and making them psychically drunk with
excitement, is Black Magic. Bismarck and Beaconsfield are types of black

On the astral and psychic planes the Masters are always stronger than the
Dugpas, because there, good is stronger than evil.  But on our material
plane, evil is stronger than good, and the Adepts having to exercise cunning
if acting on this plane, (which is contrary to their natures) encounter
great difficulty and can only palliate evil effects. In powers not good
there is an absence of good, but not presence of evil, and the higher you
go, the more does evil become the absence of good. The first exercise of
Dugpaship is to psychologize people. Every man has a potential Dugpa in him.
When the 6th Race reaches its close, there will be no more Dugpas. A Dugpa
may become converted during life, at the expense of terrible suffering and
trials. Dugpas are usually destroyed by Kundalini, the astral fire. They
consume themselves. The Dugpa is forced to his own destruction. He becomes
fascinated, runs into the evil current and so destroys himself. The beasts
of Dugpas have nothing but the animal in them, and even when they awaken the
highest spirituality in them, it is the spirituality of the beast where
there is nothing but vile, selfish instinct. On earth there is no evil power
higher than the Dugpas. They cannot when seen psychically conceal the
presence of red about them. It is always visible in their aura. The color is
deep crimson red. The sign of the presence of a Dugpa is a cold, clammy,
empty, snaky feeling. Do not mistake the above for another feeling, viz.,
when chelas materialize they create a vacuum around them, which feels to us
like a change of atmosphere, like being suddenly removed to a high plateau
in Thibet. (The one a dry cold like high atmosphere, the other clammy)."
