The karma of the vegetable kingdom has lain in the providing of food for man and this has resulted in a needed transmutation of the life of that kingdom into the higher stage, the animal.  This transmutation occurs on the Physical plane, hence its availability as food.  The transmutation of the life of the animal into the human kingdom takes place on kama-manasic levels, hence the non-availability, esoterically understood, of the animal as food for man.  This is an argument for vegetarian living which needs due consideration.

occupy this position for karmic reasons and are some of the most highly evolved of the

Devas of the Shadows.  

this round, are those who form the center which vibrates to the measure of kundalini in its

many forms and demonstrations .  In this center at the Base of the Spine is a very effective

display of the two polarities, for the petals of this center, and the fire which animates them,

are negative and positive to each other.  This center is literally a fourfold radiation and the

equal armed cross is its symbol.

Group ‘A’ Agnichaitans:  The most important group on the Physical plane from the standpoint of creation, and of objectivity, for they are the life of matter itself and the intelligence animating the forms of all that exists on the systemic Physical plane, yet they are not self-conscious intelligences.

We have seen that each group can be viewed as:

  1. Those which embody the positive aspect.

  1. Those which embody the negative aspect.

  1. That group which, in time and space, is the union of the two aspects and which, during evolution, demonstrates the third aspect.

The Devas of the atomic levels of all the planes in our scheme work in close affiliation:

  1. With each other

  1. With the seven groups who constitute the atomic matter of that scheme which is the polar opposite of ours.

  1. With that particular group in that scheme which is one of the points in a systemic triangle of which our scheme and our opposite scheme are the other two.

  1. With corresponding groups in lesser degree in all the systemic schemes.

  1. With the scheme which corresponds to the first aspect, or the plane of Adi.

  1. With those Devas who form the Spirit-substance of the manifestation of that particular Rishi of the Great Bear Who is the prototype of our particular planetary Logos.

  1. With those Devas who form the substance of that one of those seven sisters, the Pleiades.  One of these has a close connection with our Heavenly Man and, therefore, we have an interesting cosmic interplay.


We start here upon a consideration of those groups of Devas who are the substance of the Astral plane and who may be initially be considered in the following manner:

  1. The various entities who are the Soul of the differing kingdoms or groups, such as the animal, the human and higher in the scale of consciousness than men, the planetary Logos.

  1. Man himself.

  1. The plane as a totality.
