A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division D - Thought Elementals and Fire Elementals
As we know, the egoic lotus consists of three circles, - each circle being composed of three petals, and all shielding the inner bud where hides the jewel. It is with the evolution of these petals that we are concerned, with their formation, their vitalization, their nurturing, and eventual unfoldment. It will be useful for the student at this stage to remember that we are primarily dealing with the development of the second aspect in man, the love-wisdom aspect, and are only secondarily considering the third aspect, that of activity which finds its energizing centers in the three permanent atoms. [821]

These three circles of petals are called in the esoteric terminology:

  1. The "outer knowledge" triad, or the lords of active wisdom.
  2. The middle "love" triad, or the lords of active love.
  3. The inner "sacrificial" triad, or the lords of active will.

The first is the summation of experience and developed consciousness; the second is the application of that knowledge in love and service, or the expression of the Self and the Not-Self in reciprocal vibration; and the third is the full expression of knowledge and love turned toward the conscious sacrifice of all to the furthering of the plans of the planetary Logos, and to the carrying out of His purposes in group work. Each of these three groups of petals come under the definite guidance of three groups of Agnishvattas, who form them out of their own substance and who in essence are the threefold Ego during its manifestation. Through them flows the force and coherent energy of those mysterious Entities whom (when considering the human family as a whole) we call:

  1. The Buddhas or Lords of Activity.
  2. The Buddhas or Lords of Compassionate Love.
  3. The Buddhas of Sacrifice, of Whom the Lord of the World is, to man, the best known exponent.

Through these three groups flows that threefold energy which, on the mental plane, finds its medium of expression in connection with the human kingdom, in the three groups of Agnishvattas or solar Pitris above referred to. These groups form the substance of the three circles of petals, and each group has also a special influence upon the particular petal belonging to their especial scale of vibrations. For the sake of clarity, we might tabulate the various petals so that the student may [822] get a clearer comprehension of the conformation of his own causal vehicle, and some idea of the various triangular relationships:

I. The outer "knowledge" triad:

  1. Petal 1 - Knowledge on the physical plane.
    Colors: Orange, green and violet.
  2. Petal 2 - Love on the physical plane.
    Colors: Orange, rose and blue.
  3. Petal 3 - Sacrifice on the physical plane.
    Colors: Orange, yellow and indigo.

These three petals are organized and vitalized in the Hall of Ignorance, but remain unopened and only begin to unfold as the second circle is organized.

II. The middle "love" triad:

  1. Petal 1 - Higher Knowledge applied through love on the physical and astral planes.
    Colors: Rose, and the original three.
  2. Petal 2 - Higher intelligent love on the physical and astral planes.
    Colors: Rose and the corresponding three.
  3. Petal 3 - Loving intelligent sacrifice on the physical and astral planes.
    Colors: Rose and the same three.

These three petals preserve the fundamental orange but add the color rose in every petal, so that four colors are now seen. These petals are organized and vitalized in the Hall of Learning, but remain unopened. The outer tier of petals simultaneously unfolds till it is open entirely, revealing the second circle; the third remains shielded.

The inner "sacrificial" triad:

  1. Petal 1 - The Will to sacrifice through knowledge on the mental plane, and thus intelligently to dominate the entire threefold lower man.
    Colors: Yellow and the four colors, orange, green, violet and rose. [824]
  2. Petal 2 - The will to sacrifice through love on the mental plane, and thus to serve.
    Colors: Yellow and the four colors, orange, violet, rose and blue.
  3. Petal 3 - The utter sacrifice of all forever.
    Colors: Yellow, orange, rose, blue and indigo.

In the mystery of these subsidiary colors and of the gradual shining forth within the lotus of five colors in any one petal at one time, is veiled the mystery of the five Kumaras. (S. D., I, 483.) The student who seeks the significance of the preponderance of orange and of rose is approaching the secret of the two Kumaras Who fell. More it is not possible to say, but the colors hold the esoteric key to this great occurrence. This inner circle of petals is organized and vitalized in the Hall of Wisdom, and simultaneously the middle circle unfolds, so that two rows of petals are duly opened, and only the third remains to be unclosed. This final opening is effected during the period of treading the stages of the Path of Initiation, and in this round it is hastened by the rites of initiation and by the strenuous and abnormal efforts of the man himself, aided by the electrical work of the Initiator, wielding the Rod of Power.
