Discipleship in the New Age I - Summary of the Tibetan's Work
The Masters work through their disciples in many organizations; they do not exact, through these disciples, the implicit obedience of the organization members, nor do they exclude from the teaching those who disagree with the organizational policies or the interpretations of the leaders. They are not separate and antagonistic to the groups working under various disciples or other Masters, and any organization in which the Masters are interested would be inclusive and not exclusive. They do not fight over personalities, endorsing this one or rejecting that one simply because the policies of an organizational leader are, or are not, upheld. They are not the spectacular and illbred people portrayed by the mediocre leaders of many groups, nor do they choose (for their pledged disciples and prominent workers) men and women who, even from a worldly point of view, are of a pronounced inferiority or who deal in claim-making and in the art of attracting attention to themselves. To be a probationary disciple, one can be a devotee; the emphasis can then be laid on purification and the acquiring of an intelligent understanding of brotherhood and human need; to be an accepted disciple, working directly under the Masters and active in world work (with a growing influence) requires a mental polarization, a heart development and a sense of real values.

Knowing all the above, and having watched the ill effects of the usual teaching given anent the Masters, A. A. B. has gone to extremes in order to present the true nature of the Hierarchy, its goals and personnel; she has sought to lay the emphasis - as does the Hierarchy itself - on humanity and on world service, and not on a group of Teachers who, even if they have transcended the usual personality problems and experience in the three worlds, are still in process of training and are preparing themselves (under the tuition of the Christ) to tread "the Way of the Higher Evolution," as it is called. The name given to us by some disciples in Tibet gives the clue to our point of attainment. They call the Hierarchy the "society of organized [789] and illumined Minds" - illumined by love and understanding, by deep compassion and inclusiveness, illumined by a knowledge of the plan and aiming to comprehend the purpose, sacrificing their own immediate progress in order to help humanity. That is a Master.

The second point I would make is in the form of a question. What harm does it do if some one points the finger towards a Master and recognizes him as such, provided his record substantiates the statement and his influence is worldwide? If by this inadvertent slip, A. A. B. has thus indicated me as a Master, has any harm been done? My books, the carriers of my influence, have gone to the far corners of the earth and convey aid and help; the goodwill work which I suggested, and which F. B. is carrying out voluntarily, has reached literally millions of people by pamphlet and radio, by the use of the great Invocations, by the work of the Triangles and by the words and example of the men and women of goodwill.

The third point I would bring to your attention is that in the new cycle which will come at the close of the war, the fact of the Hierarchy and the work of the Masters - through their disciples - must and will be brought to public attention. Disciples everywhere will present increasingly the hierarchical plan of brotherhood, spiritual living and inclusiveness to the world; this will be done not in terms (so prevalent among the foolish) of "The Master has chosen me," or "the Master stands behind my effort" or "I am the representative of the Hierarchy" but by a life of service, by indicating that the Masters exist and are known to many men everywhere; that the plan is one of evolutionary development and educational progress towards an intelligent spiritual goal; that humanity is not alone but that the Hierarchy stands, that Christ is with his people, that the world is full of disciples unrecognized because silently working; that the New Group of World Servers exists; that the men and women of goodwill are everywhere; that the Masters are not the least interested in personalities but will use men and women of all attitudes, faiths, and nationalities, provided that love motivates them, that they are intelligent and have trained minds and that they have also magnetic and radiant influences which will attract people to truth and goodness but not to the [790] individual - be he a Master or a disciple. They care nothing for personal loyalties but are dedicated solely to the relief of distress and the promotion of the evolution of humanity and the indication of spiritual goals. They look not for recognition of their work or the praise of their contemporaries but only for the growth of the light within the world and the unfoldment of the human consciousness.
