JC: Dear Brothers, I found this article by David Reigle interesting because it
indirectly refers to the path of earth service and relinquishing the higher buddhic monadic vesture. According to an online
translated book by Tsong Khapa, Amitabha means "boundless Age" of the universal soul as well as "immeasurable light" and "all
encompassing radiating light" or "sun and lotus disc" bright as a "million beams of pure light" which I translate as the Dharmakaya
monadic vesture or seventh principle. Tsong Khapa teaches only enlightenment and intelligent and wise traverse across the
ocean or "deep pit" of samsara will lead to this vesture and the mind or light of wisdom of Sophia, "brighter than ten thousand
suns" and therefore born of the seven sons of light. At The seventh initiation the initiate becomes a concentrated point of
living light and a Buddha.
It has been said in further articles, that Tsong Khapa refutes
the first and third fundamental propositions of the Secret Doctrine*. This is incorrect. We may take
the indication of this “boundless immutable principle and absolute reality as the abstract and un manifest one ray of
the first fundamental of the secret doctrine being manifest in the three logi rays which become the seven. We are able to
do this due to the un precedented instruction of AAB/DK and the teachings on the three fundamentals, the seven rays and also
seven Dhyani-Buddhas and the Boundless ¬di-Buddhi primeval and Universal Soul of the occult doctrine.
Tsong-Kha-pa. This great Tibetan Reformer of the fourteenth century, said to be a direct incarnation
of Amita Buddha...
"Amit‚bha" (in Chinese, "Wu-lian-sheu") means literally "Boundless Age," a synonym of "En" or "Ain-Suph," the "Ancient
of Days," and is an epithet that connects Him directly with the Boundless ¬di-Buddhi (primeval and Universal Soul) of the
Hindus, as well as with the Anima Mundi of all the ancient nations of Europe and the Boundless and Infinite of the Kabalists.
To deny The “Boundless Immutable
Principle; one Absolute Reality” implies the denial of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ray logi. Without the first logos, there
can be no manifested universe or seven ray logi and indeed immediately denies the very existence of all energy and matter
in the Kosmos. Interestingly Tsong Khapa does mention that from bad deeds will come the long unbearable pain of existence
in the "lower three realms" or planes. Whilst from good comes the entering of "higher realms and the echelons of enlightenment".
It is my proposition that Tsong Khapa in reality does not deny
these fundamental propositions, for he acknowledges the Dharmakaya vesture as being 'all encompassing immeasurable radiating
light' referred to as the "truth body" in union with the "sphere of reality" Dharmabdatu or "emptiness" which in scientific
terms would be absolute vacuum, no-thing, void of all lower conscious modifications.
That everything is subject to change, evolution and progression
does not imply that there does not exist the, “Boundless Immutable Principle; one Absolute Reality” running like
a life ray and preceding all manifested forms. To be “empty of inherent existence” implies there is no “absolute
reality” which refutes the first fundamental of the secret doctrine of HPB/DK. This is the truth reality of occult doctrine
and the force of truth was known to Tsong Khapa just as he acknowledges the "great Rishis" being "possessed of the force of
truth" known to us as the seven ray lords. Indeed, he speaks of his wish to be lotus born. It is his clear indication to be
within the realms of "Mount Meru" or Shamballa to practice his adoration, prostrate and bowed head in utter adoration before
the Masters and the Lord. This wish is clearly described and understood here.
Whether Tsong Khapa taught this or whether it was recorded
or blinded to lead to the veiling of reality is of no real concern here as Tsong Khapa obviously describes Sarasvati or Sophia
the goddess of learning and esoteric wisdom as being unto a rainbow of many and varied colours among other beautiful descriptions
as having a voice and wisdom to wash away all faults, "Sophia is also Aditi with her seven sons hpb" the "great rishis" described
by Tsong Khapa with their "lotus feet and crowns of jewels" and thus the above is in accordance with the Secret Doctrine of
HPB and modern day ray philosophy. His own description of the dark forces refers to their "wrathful destruction" and gives
an insight into the mind set of the great Lords and Buddha's. Referral made to 'The Splendor of an Autumn Moon' By Tson-Kha-Pa.
"Absorbed in the practice of enlightenment, may I perform by
mere wish, in accord with my prayers, infinitely powerful deeds pleasing to the Buddhas. When shaping my mind with study,
contemplation, and meditation, I meet obstruction upon enlightenments path, may I destroy utterly with wrathful action the
power of all dark forces."
"I bow before the conquering Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and Arhats
of all directions and at all times." The Splendor of an Autumn Moon' By Tson-Kha-Pa.
It is said of the Dharmak‚ya-the formless Being-that once it
is taken, the Buddha in it abandons the world of sensuous perceptions for ever, and has not, nor can he have, any more connection
with it. SD3 379.

Among the few glimpses obtained by Europeans of Tibet and its
mystical hierarchy of "perfect lamas," there is one which was correctly understood and described. "The incarnations of the
Bodhisatwa Padma Pani or Avalokiteswara and of Tsong Khapa, that of Amitabha, relinquish at their death the attainment
of Buddhahood—i.e. the summum bonum of bliss, and of individual personal felicity—that they might be born again
and again for the benefit of mankind."(Rhys Davids)
In other words, that they might be again and again subjected
to misery, imprisonment in flesh and all the sorrows of life, provided that by such a self sacrifice repeated throughout long
and dreary centuries they might become the means of securing salvation and bliss in the hereafter for a handful of men
chosen among but one of the many races of mankind. And it is we, the humble disciples of these perfect lamas, who are
expected to allow the T. S. to drop its noblest title, that of the Brotherhood of Humanity to become a simple school of psychology?
No, no, good brothers, you have been labouring under the mistake too long already.53 "View of the Chohan on the T.S.," in

Tsong-Kha-Pa and Amita Buddha:
(a) "Amida" is the Senzar form of "√di" ; "√di-Buddhi" and
"√di-Buddha, " ["Buddhi" is a Sanskrit term for "discrimination" or intellect (the sixth principle), and "Buddha" is "wise,"
"wisdom," and also the planet Mercury.] as already shown, existed ages ago as a Sanskrit term for "Primeval Soul" and "Wisdom"
; and (b) the name was applied to Gautama Sh‚kyamuni, the last Buddha in India, from the seventh century, when Buddhism was
introduced into Tibet. "Amit‚bha" (in Chinese, "Wu-lian-sheu") means literally "Boundless Age," a (Page 408) synonym of "En"
or "Ain-Suph," the "Ancient of Days," and is an epithet that connects Him directly with the Boundless ¬di-Buddhi (primeval
and Universal Soul) of the Hindus, as well as with the Anima Mundi of all the ancient nations of Europe and the Boundless

Wide as the sea are his eyes pure and
Shining in his brilliance by transformation
Are countless Bodhisattvas and infinite Buddhas.
