[1t is] a very old tradition, older than the two known lines
of tradition from the spiritual and occult point of view,
that is to say the Vedic and the Chaldean lines, a tradition
which seems to have been at the origin of these two known
traditions and in which it is said that when the world, because
of the action of the adverse forces-the Asuras of Indian tradition-was
plunged into the obscurity, inconscience and ignorance that
we know, instead of developing in the natural law of Light
and Consciousness, the creative Power implored the supreme
Origin asking for a special intervention that would be able
to save this corrupt universe. And in answer to this prayer,
a special Entity emanated from the supreme Origin, an Entity
made of Love and Consciousness that was projected directly
into the most inconscient matter to begin the work of reawakening
to the original Consciousness and Love.
ancient narratives, this Being is described as lying stretched
in deep sleep at the bottom of a dark cave and from it as
it lay asleep emanated rays of prismatic light which spread
gradually into the Inconscience and was lodged in every element
of the lnconscience so that it may start its work of Reawakening.
If you consciously enter this Inconscient,
you can still see the same marvellous Being, ever lying in
deep sleep and continuing its work of emanation, spreading
its light; it will continue to do it until Inconscience is
no longer Inconscience, until Obscurity disappears from the
world and all creation awakes to the Supramental Consciousness.
And it is worth noticing that this marvellous
Being strangely resembles the person whom I saw in vision
one day, the Being who is at the other extremity, at the limit
of the form and the formless. But this one was in his golden
crimson glory whereas the other one in his sleep was diamond
white emanating opal rays.
is this one who is the origin of all Avatars. He is, so to
say, the original and universal Avatar who has gradually put
on bodies more and more conscious and in the end has manifested
in the somewhat known line of Beings who descended directly
from the Supreme to perfect the work of preparing the world
so that it might, by continuous progress, be ready to receive
and manifest the Supramental Light in its entirety.
In every country, in every tradition this
fact has been presented in a particular way with different
restrictions, different details, individual specialities,
but in reality the origin of all the stories is the same,
and that is what we may call a direct and conscious intervention
of the Supreme in the obscurest matter without passing through
intermediaries to awaken this matter to aspiration towards
The interval separating these different incarnations
seems to become shorter and shorter, as if matter being more
and more ready, the action could hasten and its movement become
quicker and quicker, also more and more conscious, more and
more effective and decisive.
this action will go on multiplying and intensifying itself
until the whole world becomes the full Avatar of the Supreme.
