Gnosis, the knowing. buddhism, the understanding.freemasonry, the seeking. all esoteric knowledge based on exoteric belief systems.All understanding is come to as GALAHAD in the grail quest found out at the moment of death.Thus all quests can only be proved individually at the moment of death and the rebirth.This is esoteric knowledge. It does not matter what faith or belief you follow the only path is to death and that is the moment of knowing. Bless all see you in haven
...Of the three kayas, the Dharmakaya is linked to our mind, Sambhogakaya to our speech, or communicative principle, and the Nirmanakaya to our ordinary body.
The process of the three blendings in brief is as follows.
We experience the clear light of the waking state naturally during climax(which, as pointed out by H.H. The Dalai Lama, Samael Aun Weor and others, does not actually refer to the orgasm; at least not for Initiates that is), and it can also be induced with yogic methods.
Moreover, we naturally experience it at the moment of going to sleep, and at the moment of death. The principle here is that this clear light mind as experienced in each of the three occasions (waking, sleep and death) is the highest experience of our consciousness, and in it we dwell in a mental state of blissful, formless non-duality similar to that of the Dharmakaya wisdom of a buddha.
Thus when we experience the clear light mind in any of these three occasions we should blend it with the Dharmakaya...
...The basic principle underlying these three blendings is that what occurs to us at the time of death also occurs to us in miniature form at the time of going to sleep and can be induced in the waking state by means of the inner heat yogas.
Both historically, as the famous cup that passed through the hands of Jesus of Nazareth, and symbolically, as the sacred, symbolic vessel of the Mysteries, Master Samael wrote extensively about the Grail. Notable chapters are to be found in The Great Rebellion and The Three Mountains. As a symbol, the cup represents both the woman and her sexual organs, just as the Spear or Lance represents the man or phallus.
The Immaculate Conception
All the principle tools of (Free)Masonry serve in order to work with the stone. Every Master Mason must chisel well his Philosophical Stone. This stone is the sex. We must build the temple of the Eternal One upon the Living Stone (and not build on sand).
– The Perfect Matrimony (p.305)
Masonic lodges were keepers of this knowledge of The Great Arcanum before degenerating into elitist social clubs that lost the meanings of their own symbols and rituals.
The alchemical symbol of the rock is reinforced by Mithra’s demonstration of shooting arrows into a rock in order to bring forth water. This is the same lesson exhibited by the Jewish savior Moses when he strikes a rock with his staff to bring forth water. For it is within the “stone” of Yesod, the sex, that the waters of life are found.
This is the key to the mysterious black stone of the Qa’abah (dedicated to the Arabian Divine Mother Al-Uzza, particularly revered by the tribe to which Mohammed belonged).
This is the secret of the sacred stone from which the sword (of the Kundalini) is drawn by the one true King (Arthur, the Intimate).
This is the meaning of the rock of Delos that floated on water and gave Leto safe haven to birth the divine twins Apollo and Artemis, after nine days of torment from the serpent Python (which was eventually slain by Apollo). It is the meaning of the great stone that Perseus lifted in order to attain his birthright - his father’s sword (of the kundalini) and sandals (symbol of walking the Path of his Inner Father) and eventually the Athenian throne (where he is crowned King, a Maleck, Tiphereth). It is the brilliant blue rock that protects Apache culture hero Child-of-the-Water from his enemies.
Within these symbols it is seen that in addition to uniting in sexual alchemy to engender a physical, yet divine child, the immaculate birth is also a symbol of the Second Birth explained by Jesus to Nicodemus,
Except a man be born of water (of Yesod, the sexual force) and (the fire) of the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Seriousness in the Esoteric Work
...We well know that in order to disintegrate the psychic aggregates, we have to direct the Lance against them, and this is taught clearly by Richard Wagner, great Master who is underrated by the know-it-alls of cheap pseudo-occultism. Richard Wagner, with his "Parsifal," gives an extraordinary lesson of Tantric esotericism. His Parsifal represents the Inner Christ or the Christ-Jesus; Parsifal certainly can represent the Adeptus who is not an Exentus yet; however, I would say that he represents the Adeptus-Exentus.
Obviously Parsifal also has his Divine Mother, represented by Herzeleide...
Amfortas, the King of the Grail, had a wound in his side, a terrible injury which sheds blood and water; his disciples always wash it in a nearby lake but his wound does not heal...
One day, the King of the Grail, in the presence of Kundri (a kind of Magdalene), fell in her sensual arms. While falling in her arms, Klingsor snatches the Lance away from him and with it he wounds the King Amfortas...
Klipoth 9: Neptune
...Of course, whether we like it or not, in the beginning we need Judas. Because in the beginning we start practicing with desire, but with the help of the forces of Neptune, which are the forces of our own particular Monad, we transmute this desire into willpower. This willpower is precisely the Kundalini which rises in the spinal column. Unfortunately we have to realise that sooner or later Judas will betray us. In the path of the Self-realisation we have to reach the point of transmuting the sexual energy without desire if we want to advance more in the path, and if Judas is alive in each one of us then it is not possible, because Judas is the demon of desire, or that part of us that likes to perform the sexual act, that enjoys the sexual act.
But without the sexual act it is not possible to take advantage of the sexual energy because we have to transmute the sexual energy in chastity, in the Sahaja Maithuna we have to control the Mysteries of the Lance and the Holy Grail.
Dante Alighieri also tells us that in the beginning of the Ninth Sphere we have the spear of Achilles that is the representation of the masculine sexual organs, the phallus. But also Master Samael Aun Weor talks about the Holy Grail, because this Holy Cup is the representation of the feminine sexual organs. The Lance and the Holy Grail, these two holy relics are representations of the sexual organs.
Wagner in Parsifal talks of these mysteries, the struggle of the initiate in the Ninth Sphere to work with these two forces to achieve the Resurrection...
All Christian and Neo-Christian religions: Protestants, Catholics, Adventists, etc. study the Bible literally.
All those sects study the prophecies in an absolutely intellectual and literal manner.
We, the Gnostics, like to converse personally, face to face, with the angels in order for them to explain the prophecies to us.
We are completely practical and we know how to talk to the angels and to the prophets.
Whoever wants to be a magician must obtain the sword.
The sword is the Kundalini.
The sword is the Fire of the Holy Spirit.
We gain nothing with filling our heads with theories.
We gain nothing with interpreting the Bible literally as is done by the Adventists, Protestants, Presbyterians, etc.
The best thing is to learn to talk with the angels and the prophets.
Only like this do we tread on sure paths.
We should liberate the mind from all kinds of desires, emotions, reasoning, intellectualism, theories, vanities, etc.
It is better to love a good spouse and to practice Sexual Magic everyday with our spouse, than to waste time with polemics, intellectualism and foolishness.
Thus we acquire the sword of the Kundalini and we awaken all of our magical powers, to enter through the doors of the triumphant city.
The mind is the donkey that we must ride in order to enter into the celestial Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.
The mind is the den of desire.
When the mind assaults us with useless representations, when the mind ambushes us with its lowly passions, let us talk to the mind like this:
“Mind, remove from me these desires; mind, remove from me these passions, I do not accept them from you, you are my slave and I am your Lord, until the end of time.” - Samael Aun Weor

It is widely known among a few that the CHRIST went to tibet as part of his time in the "wilderness" this has been ignored for centuries by those who would seek to teach MAN how to control his exoteric urges, hence the damning of astrologers and the like within some versions of the bible and other books.
The name of the Christ has been misused as a symbol of blame for centuries when he was martyred.There is an interesting scene in the film pale rider where the property developers meet and say "God help us if someone comes along and gives them faith."When all of the miners were being persecuted and murdered for their land, THE SAME HAPPENS NOW ONLY THEY CALL IT LIBERATION.
The Last Moments of Jesus in Egypt
...Behold, here is the Occult wisdom of Jesus that we, the Gnostics, are spreading in order to initiate the Aquarian Age. We are, therefore, the initiators of this new era.
“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the occult wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But God hath revealed them unto us (the Gnostics) by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God.” - Corinthians: 2: 6, 7, 8, 10
All religions and schools of this century adore and exploit Jesus’ human Personality, yet they reject the secret doctrine of the “I Am.” Yes, no one wants to seek internally his own resplendent and luminous “I Am.” Understand that the doctrine of the “I AM” is the doctrine that Jesus taught to us, nevertheless people reject Jesus’ teachings because:
“...The animal man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” - 1 Corinthians: 2:14
“Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought.” - 1 Corinthians: 2:6
After these events passed, Master Jesus left the pyramids; thus, riding a camel, he went towards the sacred land of Hindustan and Eastern Tibet, where he entered into the schools of mysteries.
In India and Tibet, Master Jesus made great prophecies, and it was there, on the snowy summits of Tibet, where the Master entered a great temple of mysteries, where a great council of Masters was held.
Indeed, Jesus became a true Hierophant of the great mysteries. Thus, after his journey, he returned towards the Holy Land; by that time, Herod was already dead...

Buddha Shakyamuni is said to have taught all three main divisions of the teachings(Sutra, Tantra and The Great Perfection), but that he only taught Sutra publically.
Many would find it appalling that Buddha Gautama Shakyamuni would have had a wife(Yasodhara) and that he would have practiced Karma-Mudra(Sexual Tantra) at all.
But that he actually did, would explain how he Built the Solar-Bodies(raised the Seven-Serpents) of the Bodhisattva before leaving the Palace he lived in, so that he could complete his Bodhisattva-vows by wandering the country to teach others.
In other words, he was already an Adept before even renouncing the life of Royalty.
Of course many "Orthodox Buddhists" of the Theraveda and Hinayana traditions would disagree with the authentic interpretations of the Mahayana and Vajrayana schools.
But this goes to show that many know-it-all Westerners who see Theosophy and Universal Gnosis as mere "new age" interpretations, are ignorant of the fact that much of what these school
Anyway, to truly know what authentic Buddhism is, we must practice it through Meditation, and by staying in Chastity, and by studying with complete sincerity.

I am just simply lost about varieties and diversities and contrarieties of religions, including the opposing schools of Buddhism. How does one ever get to know with certainty whether and where we will get to when we each with absolute ineluctability depart from this life.
Let's imagine this situation:...
...Tell me about what you personally are certain of in regard to the end destiny of man and life post this side of the grave.
That thing about chastity, staying in chastity, that has become moot and academic in modern Western society.
What I have found out is that even Western Buddhists the majority can be meditating about desire being cause of suffering, no-self, emptiness, right conduct, and even claim and are acclaimed to have come to Nirvana, but all the time not chaste, including and most interestingly the masters in charge of sanghas
And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. – Daniel 12:2
where they have women -- and men, being trained to be what? spiritual. Being spiritual is no off limits to libido... that's obvious even in Buddhists, of the contemporary West.
If witnesses' accounts are dependable, Western Buddhists observing chastity, even just the abstinence from sex outside one's marital partner, they make up the exiguous minority if ever they do exist in real life, beyond literature or journalism.
The Role of the Woman in Tantra
...brings about the destruction of the soil and the seed. It desacrates the hollowed ground with the blood of the offerings to false idols.
Jesus the Great Kabir talked about this clearly:
"With patience thou shalt possess thy souls."
People do not possess their souls; their souls possess them. The soul of every person suffers carrying with itself an overwhelming burden (the person). To possess soul is something very different. There are "I's" that are very difficult to eliminate, terrible defects, "I's" that are related with the Law of Karma. When one reaches this point it seems like one is not progressing when in fact we really are, but with infinite patience we will at last eliminate these "I's."...
..."The Arcanum A.Z.F. (Urdhvarata) was practiced within the ashrams of ancient India. At that time, yogis were prepared for sexual magic with the white vajroli. Unfortunately, the brothers and sisters of the temple committed scandalous acts, which discredited sexual magic. The Gurujis then pulled the curtains of esoterism shut, and the Arcanum A.Z.F. was forbidden." - from The Yellow Book
We now once again open the ancient Gnostic Sanctuaries which were closed with the arrival of the Dark Age. Thus, we are now opening the authentic Initiatic Colleges. - From The Major Mysteries by Samael Aun Weor
The Gnostic Buddha
The historical Buddha Shakyamuni did not come to start a religion or to gather worshippers: he came to demonstrate to all beings how they themselves must work to escape suffering. This is the essence of Gnosis: knowledge that is acquired by one's own efforts.
"I cannot pull someone from the hell realm and carry them to nirvana. Leaving samsara, attaining nirvana or buddhahood, depends on your own efforts. You cannot rely on anyone - not the guru, or the Buddha and bodhisattvas." – The 14th Dalai Lama
The Path of the Bodhisattva
For as the lightning cometh out of the east,
and shineth even unto the west;
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
- Matthew 24:27
