"The Mahachohan is the type of the Statesman,  the great Organizer, though 
He too has many military qualities. He wears an  Indian body, and is tall 
and thin, with a sharp profile, very fine and  clear-cut, and no hair on the 
face. His face is rather stern, with a strong,  square chin; His eyes are 
deep and penetrating, and He speaks somewhat  abruptly, as a soldier speaks. He 
generally wears Indian robes and a white  turban. 

The Master the Comte de St. Germain resembles Him in many  ways. Though He 
is not especially tall, He is very upright and military in His  bearing, and 
He has the exquisite courtesy and dignity of a grand seigneur of  the 
eighteenth century; we feel at once that He belongs to a very old and  noble 
family. His eyes are large and brown, and are filled with tenderness and  
humour, though there is in them a glint of power; and the splendour of His  
Presence impels men to make obeisance. His face is olive-tanned; His close-cut  
brown hair is parted in the centre and brushed back from the forehead, and He  
has a short and pointed beard. Often He wears a dark uniform with facings 
of  gold lace-- often also a magnificent red military cloak-- and these 
accentuate  His soldier-like appearance. He usually resides in an ancient castle 
in  Eastern Europe that has belonged to his family for many centuries. 

The  Master Serapis is tall, and fair in complexion. He is a Greek by 
birth, though  all His work has been done in Egypt and in connection with the 
Egyptian Lodge.  He is very distinguished and ascetic in face, somewhat 
resembling the late  Cardinal Newman. 

Perhaps the Venetian Chohan is the handsomest of all  the Members of the 
Brotherhood. He is very tall-- about six feet five inches,  and has a flowing 
beard and golden hair somewhat like those of the Manu; and  His eyes are 
blue. Although He was born in Venice, His family undoubtedly has  Gothic blood 
in its veins, for He is a man distinctly of that type.  

The Master Hilarion is a Greek and, except that He has a slightly  aquiline 
nose, is of the ancient Greek type. His forehead is low and broad,  and 
resembles that of the Hermes of Praxiteles. He too is wonderfully  handsome, 
and looks rather younger than most of' the Adepts. 

He who  was once the disciple Jesus is now wearing a Syrian body. He has 
the dark  skin, dark eyes and black beard of the Arab, and generally wears 
white robes  and a turban. He is the Master of devotees, and the key-note of 
His Presence  is an intense purity, and a fiery type of devotion that brooks 
no obstacles.  He lives amongst the Druses of Mount Lebanon. 

Two of the Great Ones  with whom we have come into contact diverge slightly 
from what perhaps we may  call, with all reverence, the usual type of the 
physical body of the Adept.  One of these is the spiritual Regent of India, 
He of whom Colonel Olcott  several times writes, to whom the name Jupiter was 
assigned in the book Man:  Whence, How and Whither. He is shorter than most 
members of the Brotherhood,  and is the only one of Them, so far as I am 
aware, whose hair shows streaks of  grey. He holds Himself very upright and 
moves with alertness and military  precision. He is a landed proprietor, and 
during the visit which I paid to Him  with Swami T. Subba Row, I saw Him 
several times transacting business with men  who appeared to be foremen, 
bringing reports to Him and receiving  instructions. The other is the Master Djwal 
Kul, who is still wearing the same  body in which He attained Adeptship only 
a few years ago. Perhaps for that  reason it has not been possible to
make that body a perfect reproduction of  the Augoeides. His face is 
distinctly Tibetan in character, with high cheek  bones, and is somewhat rugged in 
appearance, showing signs of age.  

Sometimes an Adept for some special purpose wants a body to use  
temporarily amid the bustle of the world. That will be the case when the  
World-Teacher comes, and we have been told that several other Adepts also may  then 
appear, to act as His lieutenants and assist Him in His great work for  
humanity. Most of these Great Ones will follow the example of Their Chief, and  
borrow temporarily the bodies of Their pupils, so it is necessary that a  
certain number of such vehicles should be ready for Their use. Students  sometimes 
ask why, since the Adepts have physical bodies already, They will  need 
others on this occasion. 


Those  who, attaining the level of Adeptship, choose as Their future career 
to remain  upon this world and help directly in the evolution of Their own 
humanity, find  it convenient for Their work to retain physical bodies. In 
order to be  suitable for Their purposes, these bodies must be of no ordinary 
kind. Not  only must they be absolutely sound in health, but they must also 
be perfect  expressions of as much of the ego as can be manifested on the 
physical plane.  

The building up of such a body as this is no light task. When the ego  of 
an ordinary man comes down to his new baby body, he finds it in charge of  an 
artificial elemental, which has been created according to his karma, as I  
have described in The Inner Life. This elemental is industriously occupied 
in  modelling the form which is soon to be born in the outer world, and it 
remains  after birth and continues that moulding process usually until the 
body is six  or seven years old. During this period the ego is gradually 
acquiring closer  contact with his new vehicles, emotional and mental as well as 
physical, and  is becoming accustomed to them ; but the actual work done by 
himself upon  these new vehicles up to the point at which the elemental 
withdraws is, in  most cases, inconsiderable. He is certainly in connection with 
the body, but  generally pays but little attention to it, preferring to wait 
until it has  reached a stage where it is more responsive to his

The  case of an Adept is very different from this. As there is no evil 
karma to be  worked out, no artificial elemental is at work, and the ego himself 
is in sole  charge of the development of the body from the beginning 
finding himself  limited only by its heredity. This enables a far more refined and 
delicate  instrument to be produced, but it also involves more trouble for 
the ego, and  engages for some years a considerable amount of his time and 
energy. In  consequence of this, and no doubt for other reasons as well, an 
Adept does not  wish to repeat the process more often than is strictly 
necessary, and He  therefore makes His physical body last as long as possible. Our 
bodies grow  old and die for various reasons, from inherited weakness, 
disease, accident  and self-indulgence, worry and overwork. But in the case of 
an Adept none of  these causes is present, though we must of course remember 
that His body is  fit for work and capable of endurance immeasurably
beyond those of ordinary  men. "
