These are the devas who construct, and build in matter of theFire, 634:the relationship between the two great groups of devas who build and construct the most objectiveFire, 634:an analogy also in the relationship between the devas of the astral plane, and the motor andFire, 634:not enlarge upon this angle of vision. These devas have to do, in a very esoteric sense, with theFire, 635:is of interest, but in studying these groups of devas at present we will view them principally inFire, 635:Elementals The Agnichaitans - Physical Plane Devas These devas are the sumtotal of physical planeFire, 635:The Agnichaitans - Physical Plane Devas These devas are the sumtotal of physical plane substance.Fire, 635:of activity. For purposes of active work, the devas of the system are divided into forty-nineFire, 636:as the body of manifestation of one of the seven devas through whom the Raja-Lord of the plane isFire, 636:C. the lowest three subplanes; they are the devas who are the essences of all that is tangible,Fire, 637:of force, therefore, play upon or through these devas: That energizing the devas of the firstFire, 637:upon or through these devas: That energizing the devas of the first subplane, the atomic.

That energizing the devas of the lowest three orders, emanating fromFire, 639:to make anent this third group of the lowest devas. They are very destructive where man isFire, 640:importance of the war man wages on the fire devas for instance is very real in connection with theFire, 640:be that of water (or the calling in of the water devas to neutralize the fire devas), but that ofFire, 640:in of the water devas to neutralize the fire devas), but that of incantation, and a knowledge ofFire, 640:and Fire Elementals The third group of these devas is very definitely connected with the control ofFire, 640:of the Manu's department, and of the great devas associated with that department on this planet.Fire, 642:department through their own rulers - certain devas of a development equal to that of the sixthFire, 642:kingdoms) is to be found a great hierarchy of devas who concern themselves with the development ofFire, 643:B - we are dealing with that important group of devas who are designated in some works as theFire, 643:devas who are designated in some works as the "devas of the shadows." Their function is primarily aFire, 644:out by the agency of  certain groups of devas on all the planes. These three groups on theFire, 644:conscious or unconscious source. Fourth, these "devas of the shadows," perform certain activitiesFire, 645:to bear in mind that we are dealing with the devas on the evolutionary arc, which may be dividedFire, 646:Class 4. A very important class of etheric devas (as far as man is concerned) who are definitelyFire, 646:angles, some of the most highly evolved of the devas of the shadows. They are distinguished byFire, 646:Class 5. We have here a very important group of devas, who are peculiarly active and esotericallyFire, 648:given over to deva control - the two groups of devas meeting there, and performing their functionFire, 649:power. We have above considered a few of the devas of the ethers but have of necessity left manyFire, 649:when it is remembered that in dealing with the devas we are dealing  with that which is theFire, 650:likewise exists between these three groups of devas on the systemic physical plane, and theirFire, 650:Elementals and Fire Elementals As regards the devas of Group B, little more can be said. Only a fewFire, 650:a few more generalities are advisable. These devas, especially those of the fourth ether, are soFire, 651:effects of the war was felt among the devas of the shadows, and primarily among those of the fourthFire, 651:have to be offset. Another effect upon the devas resulting from the war, as it worked, can be seenFire, 651:the war, as it worked, can be seen among the devas of Group A, or those devas who are (in an occultFire, 651:can be seen among the devas of Group A, or those devas who are (in an occult sense) the physicalFire, 653:We have seen that on all planes the groups of devas can be divided into three  main groups,Fire, 654:We have touched upon the two lower groups of devas. Now, we might take up the consideration ofFire, 656:six principles do to the seventh. Therefore, the devas of Group A are the concentrated creativeFire, 656:in Their schemes, and therefore in the types of devas through whom They function, and out of whoseFire, 656:the response of certain peculiar groups of devas to His note. They embody in themselves just thoseFire, 656:It will, therefore, be recognized that the devas of Group A, being what we might call theFire, 656:of Group A, being what we might call the key-devas, are of prime importance, and, from our presentFire, 656:the reason for this will be apparent. If the devas of Group A could be recognized, or evenFire, 656:lower man are within the causal periphery the devas of the three worlds on the atomic subplanesFire, 656:there must be unity of purpose and of plan. The devas of the atomic levels of all the planes in ourFire, 657:first aspect, or the plane of Adi. With those devas who form the spirit-substance of theFire, 657:of our particular planetary Logos. With those devas who form the substance of that one of thoseFire, 658:and Fire Elementals Agnisuryans - Astral Plane Devas We start here upon a consideration of thoseFire, 658:here upon a consideration of those groups of devas who are the substance of the astral plane, theFire, 658:The plane as a totality. We might consider these devas: First, as the substance of the astral planeFire, 658:the correspondence on the astral plane to the "devas of the shadows," for the desire bodies of allFire, 660:is due to the stage of development of the great devas who embody the plane, who ensoul it, and whoFire, 661:1. The Function of the Agnisuryans The devas of the astral plane are those with whom man is veryFire, 662:from His present limitation. Owing to this the devas of the astral plane assume a very importantFire, 662:plane activities. If man only realized it, the devas of the astral plane at present very largelyFire, 665:here to bring out a point in connection with the devas of the lower planes (those with whom man isFire, 665:in the three worlds. Occultly understood, these devas (of the type we are considering) are onlyFire, 665:for the purposes of our present study, the devas are only to be found in the three worlds. BeyondFire, 666:a little of the point of view of those great devas Who cooperate intelligently in the plan ofFire, 667:is demonstrating the aspects of divinity. The devas are demonstrating the attributes of divinity.Fire, 667:the inner vision and must learn to see. The devas are evolving the inner hearing and must learn toFire, 667:means of contact and experience. He expands. The devas evolve by means of the lessening of contact.Fire, 667:is the law for them. Man aims at self-control. Devas must develop by being controlled. Man isFire, 667:Love - the Force which produces coherency. The devas are innately intelligence, - the force whichFire, 667:throw light upon the relationship of Man to the devas. The devas of the physical plane, thoughFire, 667:upon the relationship of Man to the devas. The devas of the physical plane, though divided into theFire, 667:C, are under another grouping spoken of as "the Devas of the Seventh Order." The seventh order isFire, 667:The seventh order is peculiarly linked to the devas of the first order on the first plane. They areFire, 668: archetypal plane. This seventh order of devas is directly under the influence of the seventhFire, 668:seventh plane. As the goal of evolution for the devas is the inner hearing, it will be apparent whyFire, 668:varying phenomena. This seventh order of devas is the one with which the workers on the left handFire, 668:with desires and motives. He works through the devas of the sixth order. The devas of the sixthFire, 668:works through the devas of the sixth order. The devas of the sixth order are those of the astralFire, 668:order are those of the astral plane, and are the devas who have the most to do with the forcesFire, 668:is why the White Brother, if He works with the devas at all, works only on the astral plane andFire, 668:astral plane and with the positive aspect. These devas of the sixth order, as might be expected,Fire, 668:buddhic plane and in these three great orders of devas we have a powerful triangle of electricalFire, 669:D - Thought Elementals and Fire Elementals These devas of the sixth order come under the specialFire, 669:connected with this particular order of devas, and through this dual influence is produced thatFire, 669:out the true meaning of this sixth order of devas, whose symbol is the six-pointed Star set at aFire, 670:God or man) has sought physical incarnation. The devas of the sixth order, the Agnisuryans, are aFire, 670:in bringing this about. In the sixth round these devas will begin to make their presence felt moreFire, 671:also evolve and, therefore, the subject of the devas in their dual aspect as the negative andFire, 671:true idea is to be approximated. Therefore, the devas - who are the sumtotal of substance - must beFire, 671:the true mystery of Being. When the two great devas seek each other, when they meet and merge, theFire, 672:dealing in this section with the evolutionary devas who are the positive Life animatingFire, 676:passing to the consideration of  those devas who are concerned with the construction of man'sFire, 676:the cosmic astral plane. Second. Seven great Devas, who are the positive force of each of the sevenFire, 676:systemic astral plane. Third. Various groups of devas, performing different functions carrying outFire, 676:and would be unintelligible if mentioned: Those devas who form the permanent atomic substance ofFire, 676:groups according to the Ray of the Monad. Those devas who form the "liquid" aspect in the physicalFire, 677:in watery physical matter. A group of devas, who form the desire body of that great entity whoFire, 677:in its incentive impulsive aspect. Certain devas who - being of the third order - form the HeavenFire, 677:the Hell for the same class of thinker. Those devas who form the astral life of any thought-form.
