"Lately the Master R. has taken the position of Mahachohan, and that achievement has carried the entering force down into the ranks of those Masters who have taken the fifth initiation thus enabling them to step down this Shamballa force to their individual Ashrams." Dicipleship in the new age II 135. 
"Then and only then does the disciple-initiate pass into the Ashram of the Master of his ray - one of the senior Masters in connection with the seven major Ashrams. If he is a disciple in the Ashram of a Master who is on one of the Rays of Attribute, the task of that Master is to prepare him for transition on to one of the major Rays of Aspect. This shifting and interchange is taking place all the time, when, for instance, the Master R. assumed the task of Mahachohan or Lord of Civilization, his Ashram was shifted from the seventh Ray of Ceremonial Order to the third Ray of Active Intelligence; the majority of those who have taken the second and the third initiations were transferred with him under what might be called a "special dispensation"; the rest of the members of his Ashram remained for tuition and training in service under that Master who took his place as the central point of the seventh ray Ashram."  Dicipleship in the new age II 383. 
"Under the Manu work the regents of the different world divisions, such as, for instance, the Master Jupiter, the oldest of the Masters now working in physical bodies for humanity, who is the regent for India, and the Master Rakoczi, who is the regent for Europe and America. It must be remembered here that though the Master R., for instance, belongs to the seventh ray, and thus comes under the department of energy of the Mahachohan, yet in Hierarchical work he may and does hold office temporarily under the Manu. These regents hold in their hands the reins of government for continents and nations, thus guiding, even if unknown, their destinies; they impress and inspire statesmen and rulers; they pour forth mental energy on governing groups, thus bringing about the desired results wherever cooperation and receptive intuition can be found amongst the thinkers." Initiation Human and Solar 46. 
Dicipleship in the New Age vol II 135.
