Armageddon – The great decisive Battle between
the Forces of Light and darkness. It was predicted in all the ancient scriptures, and the name, "Armageddon" as well as the
description of it, can be found in the Apocalypse.
The year 1936 is indicated as most significant. It
is interesting to note that these calculations are also found in the pyramid of Cheops. Thus, today we find ourselves in the
midst of this Battle, which will increase. LHR1
Of course, the year 1936 was indicated as a year of
great foundations and great changes. But the reign of the Lord of Shambhala does not imply that He will come and take part
physically in the last battle; this is the mistake that the most ignorant of Buddhists make. The Lord of Shambhala, according
to the most ancient chronicles, will fight the Prince of Darkness himself. This battle, first of all, takes place in the subtle
spheres; whereas, here the Lord of Shambhala acts through his earthly warriors. LHR1.
The East knew about this dangerous period a long time
ago. In ancient scriptures there are times indicated, regarding the approach of the fiery energies, corresponding to the forties
of our century. It is interesting to note that the calculations of the Hierophants of ancient Egypt show that the year 1936
is most significant; and, still further, the very years during which the destiny of our planet should be decided are pointed
out. This destiny will be either a beautiful epoch of Great Balance or else it will be the end, a final total explosion. Thus,
the fate of our planet is in the hands of humanity. LHR1
As you see, the year 1936 was filled with the most
significant events, but do many understand their profound meaning? LHR2.
Writings are being revealed and new, new hearths are
being kindled in the most unexpected places. Precisely the year 1936 brought much joy for those who are able to see. LHR2.
On the Christ: Some aspirants and disciples may experience
an almost constant recollection of the Christ; that is due to their increasing sensitivity to the inner planes and particularly
to the fact that so much of the matter in the astral body of the advanced aspirant is taken from (and is therefore sensitive
to) the highest subplane of the astral plane.
It is also due to the fact that the Lord Maitreya with
His workers is approaching nearer all the time to the physical plane. The focus of His attention in the year 1936 was, for
the first time, predominantly on the first subplane of the astral plane. Hence the sensitive's correct and immediate response
to His energy there expressed. EH 361.
This was the third of the "Great Approaches" made by
the Hierarchy towards humanity. The success of these approaches is largely based on the intensity of the desire found in the
world aspirants and among those who have, on their side, established also a "way of approach" through meditation and service.
Their numbers being phenomenally greater than at any
previous time, the year 1936 saw the Hierarchy make a step forward that was unprecedented (I had almost said, unexpected)
in its experience. This was due to the worldwide activity of the New Group of World Servers. EP2 702.
The year 1936 was mentioned in many prophecies as the
year of the personal battle between the Archangel Michael and the Dragon. Thus, in spite of everything, courage and the joy
of a new battle for Light abide in our hearts. LHR2.
Armageddon is in its full fury. Broad is the threshold
of the year 1936. LHR2.
The use of the great mantram or invocation - in two
parts. The first was used in 1936 and the second in 1940, and is still in use. The first was intended to centralize human
desire, and the second was intended to utilize what mental power was available to invoke Those Who (on the inner spiritual
side of life) are waiting to help. EXT 249.
Those who think only in terms of peace as they understand
it and desire it are apt to forget the Biblical implication that the Prince of Peace takes a definite part in the battle of
Armageddon (now in full progress). EXT 259. DK. (written 1940).
