Monastic Training


Chapter 7

88 ¶All young people coming into our monastery would be carefully taught over a long period of time, and when one had learned his skill well, he performed it for the rest of his life. We are concerned more about inner visions, interplanetary travel, precisions and communication and our quest for the Self rather than perfecting a multitude of external skills, going always deeper and deeper into the core of our Being. Taking care of our monastery and temple consumed all of our time, as we followed a strict routine. We are told that this routine has not changed for thousands of years, each one of us performing one small part of it. §

Ākāśic Manuscripts Of Procedure§

89 ¶Every aspect of a monastic’s training was written for him in ākāśic books. Every move of the hand in performance of his task, how and when to proceed was designated there. Therefore, we knew exactly how to perform each task, where and when to gather in the monastery in small groups or large. But for the most part each one was alone, as the map for running the monastery was so precise that two of us were rarely found in the same place at the same time, unless the task to be performed required the presence of two or more. The senior always taught the junior, and in his training he was taught to read in the ākāśa the book that clearly outlined the simple skill that he was to perform in his function within the monastery. If he were to leave on a pilgrimage or tapas, someone else would fulfill this exact function in the exact same way. In this way this vast machinery of beings worked on Earth, bringing through divine radiation from our other planets to this one. §

Each one within the monastery should acquire a semblance of sameness, be he evolved or not evolved, be he in a manifested body or a body given birth to by a mammal human. §

Representative Lemurian Priesthood§

90 ¶The Lemurian priesthood contains all of the phases of mind powers represented by different groups of individuals, from the least evolved on into the highest evolved. Each must be represented, none neglected. In the Lemurian culture we tend to emphasize transcendental means as the mode of what we are all aspiring for, to set a standard for the ones of us coming out of the animal kingdom into human form. This cultural attitude should not exist in our temples and monasteries. Each one within the monastery should acquire a semblance of sameness, be he evolved or not evolved, be he in a manifested body or a body given birth to by a mammal human. This sameness should and must persist for the monastery to perform its function and for the Deity to be able to do His work within the temple. We all know our Deity and Lords rule the temples. The gurus of our culture rule the monasteries. Each monastery of this great Lemurian priesthood blends so closely with the vibration of the darshan, that only one person, one other person than the guru, should be felt to exist within the monastery, while in the temple there is one person and the Deity felt, even though a thousand may be present. §

Training From an Early Age§

91 ¶The training of the Lemurian priests begins at a very young age. A Lemurian becomes a priest in the monastery at the time he is initiated and begins his training, or assumes his position of service if he has already been trained in another monastery. To hold the force field strong so that the darshan persists when a group of Lemurian priests are together, each one must adhere to the dictate of grouping together in a line or a circle, always in succession according to the length of time each one has been in the monastery. Each one in the priesthood upon entering has direct contact with the guru, the band of devas in the monastery and all our monasteries and our Deity, the great Lord of the universe. §

Priesthood Order by Seniority§

92 ¶When a circle of priests was formed, it too was carefully grouped from left to right according to the length of time spent within that particular monastery. The more time the Lemurian priest stays within a monastery, the more of the darshan of that monastery he’s able to disseminate. There can be others within the monastery, not in the priesthood, but here to learn on a short or long tenure of stay. They must follow the same pattern as the priesthood as well as they understand it, but they do not have to adhere as directly, because this group of beings move more frequently from monastery to monastery. It must be well known that all initiation be kept secret between the guru and the initiate. Neither initiations nor secretly imparted teachings shall change anything in the daily lives of Lemurian monastics. §

Training Community Elders§

93 ¶The elders of the community surrounding our temple must impart the teachings, raise the children and train some of them for entrance into our monasteries. Only in this way will Lemuria persist and be strong on this planet. The elders may visit and live in the monasteries, take written teachings back to their homes and learn to read from the ākāśic libraries. It is the responsibility of all Lemurian gurus to carefully choose young men to study with our elder men in their homes before entering the priesthood. This then will be the training for the elder himself, as he will enter the priesthood in his next life at a very early age. If this be the case, he should be taken into the monastery from his parents’ home and be raised by the monastics, for he will remember the training he gave to many young monastics in his last incarnation. §

Calculating Monastic Age§

94 ¶Our time is calculated according to the moon circling the Earth. Therefore, an elder who trained monastics in his last life, entering the monastery at one circle of age in his present life, would grow up year by year. Every two moons form one circle while living in the intensity of the Lemurian monastery. Generally, one circle would equal twelve moons. In this way the monastic age is calculated accurately, and each one has the same starting point, be he one circle or twenty circles of physical age. When taken from the wall for the first time, the young Lemurian must be one circle of monastic age, and then increasingly every two months another circle. §

The Second And Third Circles§

95 ¶During the second circle in the monastery, his training must be then similar to a child’s training in the ages between six and twelve circles. During the third circle of twelve moons, he is looked at as between the ages of twelve and eighteen, and it was generally during this time he became initiated and entered the Lemurian priesthood. During this time, between the monastic ages of twelve and eighteen, more strenuous demands must be placed upon him, as he is no longer considered a child. Nevertheless, his elders must supervise him well. The elders would be those more senior. During the Lemurian monastic’s fourth circle in the monastery, from the monastic age of eighteen to twenty-four, he must settle into what he has been trained to do and perform these duties for the duration of his time in the monastery, perhaps for the rest of his life. §

Exceptions To Training Norms§

96 ¶Education, being a predominant part of our culture, changes this pattern and is the only way that this pattern within the monastery can be changed. Should the monastic begin to make tremendous literary contributions to our culture that begin to be become used by the elder men of our community, or if he emanates tremendous darshan as a result of his personal evolution, intensified by his disciplines, only then would he be released from some of his duties that he had been trained to perform within the monastery or temple. §

Each Lemurian monastic’s training is clearly outlined in ākāśic manuscripts year by year, according to the ratio of one circle equaling six monastic years, throughout the duration of his life. §

Training as Outlined in Ancient Texts§

97 ¶Each Lemurian monastic’s training is clearly outlined in ākāśic manuscripts year by year, according to the ratio of one circle equaling six monastic years, throughout the duration of his life. Some of these manuscripts are so precise and detailed in day-to-day description of inner practice for our Lemurian monastics of 100 years of age and on that only the most astute are able to follow these disciplines. It is our gurus who have access to the chartered course given within these manuscripts, which were prepared on the planet whence we came, carefully placed within the ākāśa there to be read here by the gurus of Lemuria. §

Latitude For New Monastics§

98 ¶Through the first six moons within the monastery after coming from the wall, all should come to know the newcomer, and he must be taught through telling him the favorite stories of the monastery, by playing games with him and blending him into the group. Sports of all kinds have always been a part of our culture ever since we came to the planet. They keep our culture strong, as while we perform in a group we lose all external awareness of ourself. A new monastic should not be given much responsibility until he is well into his second circle, or between nine and twelve monastic years old. Up until that time, he should be told stories and taught the subtleties of conduct, which only by living in the monastery one can learn, and enter into the many physical and mental games that are played each day. It is in the third circle, between the monastic age of twelve and eighteen, that he should be given tests of will, strength and valor, a lot more recreation and stories about how positive accomplishments for our culture have been made in the past and will be made in the future. Still yet, during the ages of twelve to eighteen, little direct responsibility should be given to him, but shouldered by the senior Lemurian priests that are training him. §

The Giving Of Personal Responsibility§

99 ¶Between twelve and eighteen monastic years old is the time that personal discipline is given to him and when he usually is initiated as a permanent member of the monastic order, the priesthood. It is in this third circle of his monastic years, between twelve and eighteen, that a personal interest must be shown in him by his elders as to his ability to remember the teachings and the stories by examination as to how philosophically astute he is. This attention should be given to him closer to the end of the third circle, between sixteen and eighteen monastic years. The outcome of how well he had performed his disciplines then becomes apparent, and he is placed in the appropriate permanent position of service within the monastery. §

Allowances During the Third Year§

100 ¶The routine for a Lemurian monastic going into his third monastic circle must never be terrifically strict in any way. They must be given time to play, to be young and move here and there, or from monastery to monastery if they are helpers on projects that their elders have initiated. It is only in the fourth circle that they settle down to regulated activity. §
