Master DK refers to a "relative glory of the new civilization"
which may perhaps refer to the coming in and development of the new age Aquarian sixth sub race of the Fifth Root Race. Interestingly
it is the 50th anniversary of the conquering climb of Everest which although was indeed a group event and joint climb with
Tenzing, was also headed by a New Zealander [sixth sub race] mountaineer named Sir Edmund Hillary. JPC.
The attempt today to climb Mount Everest is amazingly
symbolic, and it is being watched with much interest by the Hierarchy, for in this effort we see the attempt of humanity to
achieve the top of the mountain whose height has hitherto defeated all efforts. But - and this is the matter of moment and
of interest - when humanity emerges into the light and relative glory of the new civilization, they will at the same
time conquer this last remaining summit. That which is of the densest materiality and which is the consummation of earthly
grandeur will remain - but it will be beneath the feet of humanity. 1951. EA 159.
The summit that is mentioned here is Mt. Everest, or,
as it is called in Tibetan, Jemo-Kang-Kar, She who Rules the White Snow. The highest point on Earth and also both earthly
poles have a tremendous significance, because of the reservoir of electromagnetic forces which is collected upon them. When
the crucial moment shall come that will decide whether or not our Earth will continue to exist, these points will play the
decisive role in the salvation of our planet. As you know, all the attempts to reach the top of Mt. Everest, so far were not
successful and caused the loss of many lives. AY 315. 1929.
Not long ago only the Northern Lights were known, but
now the Himalayan Lights have been seen too, yet no one can point out their cause. One can speak of the intensification of
the energy, and of the electric phenomena, but these are nothing but vague assumptions. Why, somewhere behind Everest, does
an unusual intensification of energy take place? And why does this phenomenon cause such varied effects? Many questions arise
but as yet the essence is still unexplained. SMD 626.
Pockocke, may be, was not altogether wrong in deriving
the German Heaven, Himmel, from Himalaya. SD3. HPB.
The forthcoming 6th Sub Race -- which may begin very
soon -- will be in its Satya (golden) age. SD. HPB.
Secondly, it is to be noted that there is upon our
planet a group of men and women belonging to every nation, who are definitely upon the Path of Discipleship and because of
their status, they are all of them as definitely serving the race. They are subjectively welded together into a body, which
we have called the New Group of World Servers, for lack of a better name. Their characteristics are well known, for many have
made a careful study of this group for two or three years and many also form a part of it. Prominent members of this group
are to be found in every country in Europe, in China and Japan, in North and South America, and in South Africa.
In Australia, New Zealand and other countries not enumerated
above, members and servers of this group are to be found. Many of these group members know or recognize each other from the
similarity of objectives, ideals and methods, to be seen in their work, but in many cases they remain unknown to each other.
Group members are to be found working in all fields of human enterprise, - economic, political, social and religious. EP2
And now regarding your question about the Sixth Race.
Yes, in many Theosophical books, even in The Secret Doctrine, we find the indication that the Sixth Race is gathering in America.
But precisely in The Secret Doctrine I encountered a contradiction. In one place it is mentioned that it is in America that
the sixth sub-race of the Fifth Race is commencing to be formed, while in another part it is given as the Sixth Race. Certainly,
there is a vast difference between the concept of a sub-race and that of a root race. One should also take into consideration
the possibility of a misprint.
At the birth of America the majority of migrants belonged
to the sixth and even the seventh sub-race of the Fifth Race. It is rather remarkable that no one pays any attention to the
strange fact that almost nowhere in Theosophical literature is our country mentioned, as if a sixth part of the world had
no place in the cosmic plan and in evolution. Almost no one asks, "Why is this and what is the reason for it?" I will answer,
That which is secret is carefully guarded, and if it were announced prematurely that his country has a great future, it would
be torn to pieces.
Moreover, the Teaching of the Secret Doctrine would
not have been accepted. As for the sixth Race, those single individuals who belong to it are indeed born in all countries,
and at the proper time the majority of them will be assembled in the principal and safe place. Just as the seeds of the Fifth
Race were saved, so, also, the seeds of the Sixth will be safeguarded. LHRII.
It has been denied that the prophesied Golden age -
the Satya age - the age in which the Sixth Root Race will appear, could by any possibility be so close at hand as has been
claimed by some writers, as such a long time must elapse before the close of the Kali Yuga.
would appear that such disputants might have forgotten or never knew that there must be a Satya cycle in the Kali Yuga, just
as there must be sub-races of the Sixth Root Race - the progenitors of which must appear in the Satya cycle of the Kali Yuga
for all root races overlap each other by many thousands of years. In fact there are Third Root Race men and those in the early
sub-races of the Fourth Root Race in strange places on the earth even to this day. Theogenesis. Hilarion/Morya.
