1. The New Initiation
The fulfilment of the Testament of Truth in our epoch requires the gathering of the spiritual fruits from the whole Hindu-European cycle, spiritual awakening of the people and meeting the new coming of the Divine Masters. They will reveal the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth where the illuminated humankind will live.
We can find the typological picture of the spiritual history of humankind during the Hindu-European cycle in the world religions: in Hinduism the teaching about the Yugas, in the Old Testament the visions of the prophet Isaiah and the prophet Ezekiel, in the New Testament the Book of Revelation by St. John, and others. For instance, the vision of St. John in the Book of Revelation (Chapter 21) of the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, which has twelve gates, is like a colossal metaphysical Zodiac-Mandala the Mandala of the Heavenly Jerusalem:
The Spirit took control of me, and the angel carried me to the top of a very high mountain. He showed me Jerusalem, the Holy City, coming down out of heaven from God and shining with the glory of God. The city shone like a precious stone, like a jasper, clear as crystal. It had a great, high wall with twelve gates and with twelve angels in charge of the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of the people of Israel. There were three gates on each side: three on the east, three on the south, three on the north, and three on the west. The city's wall was built on twelve foundation stones, on which were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Revelation 21: 10-14)
In essence, 'the twelve gates' are the spiritual paths traced by the world religions which lead through one or another 'entrance' to the wholeness of the Kingdom of God. The 'twelve tribes of the people of Israel' are the archetype of the whole of humanity, while 'the twelve apostles of the Lamb' personify specific human qualities and virtues enabling entry into the Holy City through the various gates.
The Throne of God and of the Lamb, the four metaphysical directions (east, west, south, north) and the twelve gates, 'three on each side', depict a gigantic cosmic-spiritual Zodiac. In this metaphysical Zodiac God Himself (manifested by the Holy Trinity) is the cosmic-spiritual Sun which never sets; the four directions are the turning points of the spiritual 'seasons' and the 'twelve gates' are specific cosmic-spiritual fields of energy (like twelve spiritual zodiac signs). The 'seasons' correspond to the great spiritual epochs in the history of humankind for instance, the Satya, Treta, Dwapara and Kali Yugas, according to the Hindu tradition. Each world religion comes in a particular cosmic-spiritual season (historical epoch) and reveals a complete picture of the Universe but in accordance with its 'season'. Thus, the religions form one or another 'room in the Father's house' with a specific gate (i.e. spiritual path) of entry into the Kingdom of God. The interpretation of the Holy City as a cosmic-spiritual Zodiac allows us to integrate all spiritual epochs in the Hindu-European cycle of evolution (from the previous Golden Age, the last Satya Yuga, to the coming new one) in a gigantic Zodiac-Mandala. This is the contemplation of all human history on Earth in the panorama of the great metahistorical 'cosmic-spiritual year' in the life of humankind.
In other words, the vision of the Heavenly Jerusalem is a typological picture of the whole metahistorical cycle of humankind's life on Earth since the Fall the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise to their return back to the Father's house. It includes all historical epochs through which humankind has passed during the process of involution (from the Garden of Paradise to the material world) and evolution (from the dark 'material' consciousness evolving to cosmic-spiritual consciousness). In this picture all initiations in human history, such as those of Krishna, Hermes, Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Orpheus, Pythagorus, Plato, Jesus Christ, Muhammad, Bodhidharma, the Master Beinsa Douno and many others can be inscribed.
Each one of the twelve gates of the Heavenly Jerusalem leads to the majestic Divine Temple of one or another world religion. Each Temple embraces the whole vertical structure of creation with its three worlds the earthly, the celestial and the Highest Divine World, reaching the Absolute Origin of Being. The Divine Masters, founders of the religions, and the manifestations of the Divine Feminine connected with them keep the gates of the Temples in the Heavenly Jerusalem always open in order for millions of followers to enter and to receive their initiation (see Scheme One below):
All the elements of the Mandala on Scheme 1 the centre, the circumference, the horizontal and vertical axes, the three circles (pink, blue and white), the day-night cycle, the four cosmic season, the gates of initiation, the Temples of initiation, etc. have a deep mythological significance and symbolise the structure of Creation, the different phases in the involution and the evolution of the human being and the different historical epochs in human civilisation as well. A detailed description of the Heavenly Jerusalem as a majestic metaphysical Zodiac-Mandala, i.e. the metahistorical picture of the whole Hindu-European cycle in the human history, is given in the book The Second Coming by Leon Moscona.
If we depict the whole Hindu-European cycle of human evolution, metaphorically, as a clock, now humankind is approaching the 12th hour of this historical epoch, the moment when the old cycle finishes and the new one begins. For this purpose the Spirit of Truth opens the last Universal Gate in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the one which leads to the cosmic spiritual summer, the New Golden Age, the epoch of the Holy Spirit. Thus the prophecy of St. John from the Book of Revelation that all gates of the Holy City will be open day and night (Revelation 21:25) will be fulfilled and humankind will live in the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth forever.
The opening of the last Universal Gate in the Heavenly Jerusalem is a great apocalyptic event which marks the new stage in the evolution of humankind as God's people on sacred Earth. The building of the New Temple of the Holy Spirit which appears on the Southern Universal Gate follows the archetypal model of all other Temples in the Heavenly Jerusalem in accordance with the three fold structure of Creation. It unfolds on all three levels as well the earthly, the celestial and the Divine levels. It is in this Temple that all awakened souls from the four corners of the earth, receiving the New Initiation from the Living God, will realise the Testament of Truth.
The New Initiation, which comes from the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit, is the fulfillment of the Testament of Truth in our epoch and has three main aspects which are very closely and organically interconnected metaphysical, metahistorical and metacultural. The metaphysical aspect is connected with the spiritual journey on the Path of the Divine Rainbow from the earthly world to the Highest Divine World; the metahistorical aspect is an experience of the New Pentecost and meeting the new coming of the Divine Masters; the metacultural aspect is participation in the Divine Wedding in Heaven and co-creation with God.
2. The Path of the Divine Rainbow
The metaphysical aspect in the fulfillment of the Testament of Truth is the ascent through the whole vertical structure of Creation and entry into the Heavenly Jerusalem, into the Kingdom of God where there are many mansions. For this purpose the Spirit of Truth leads the awakening souls step by step on the Path of the Initiate. This is the Nine-Fold Path of the Divine Rainbow which traces our ascent through the whole vertical structure of Creation and our entry into the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth.
The journey on the Path of the Divine Rainbow begins with building the Right Understanding, creating an appropriate style of life and making our Exodus from the restricted material consciousness (Step One, Exodus). The next Step is an ascent to the second world of the three-fold structure of the Universe (i.e. to the celestial world), and spiritual rebirth as celestial souls (Step Two, The Garden of Paradise). The Third Step, The Sacred Mountain, leads to the highest Divine world of the three-fold structure of Creation and to the spiritual centre of the Universe from the perspective of one or another world religion. From there we can experience the mystery of Creation and embrace its whole vertical structure. This Step brings our second rebirth the awakening of our Divine Self. From the highest point, at the Centre of the Universe, we can contemplate all rooms in the Father's House i.e. the great variety of spiritual worlds which have been revealed by the different religions (Step Four, The Holy City). Above the highest Divine world is the 'Throne of God', the Absolute Origin of Being, which is manifested by the Holy Trinity. The Fifth and Sixth Steps are consecrated respectively to the Mysteries of Universal Spirit the active, subjective, masculine Divine principle and to the Mysteries of the Universal Feminine the receptive, objective, feminine Divine principle. The Universal Spirit and the Universal Feminine are in eternal Divine Union, and now this Union brings forth the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth.
The Fifth and the Sixth Steps constitute the climax of the Divine Rainbow and are the culmination of the Rainbow Path. But, while the Fifth Step crowns the first act of the Drama of the transformation of humankind our ascent to the celestial reality of the Kingdom of God, the Sixth Step opens the second act of this Drama our descent back to the Earth with the task of bringing the reality of the Kingdom of God down on Earth. Thus, the Seventh Step of the Divine Rainbow Path is The Transfiguration of the Earth, while the Eighth Step is Transformation of the Earthly Culture into a Celestial Culture. Finally, as we establish our new celestial style of life which bears fruit twelve times a year (Revelation 22: 2), we reach the end of the Divine Rainbow, the Ninth Step, and enjoy the New Golden Age.
The Steps of the Divine Rainbow Path are organically connected to the three-fold structure of the Universe and to the essence of the human being, created in the image and likeness of God, as a micro-model of Creation. Each Step on the Path embraces a vast realm of spiritual work and requires a great variety of methods, techniques and spiritual practices for achieving its goals. In its entirety the Path of the Divine Rainbow is a well-defined and precise spiritual Path which has been given for our epoch.
In accordance with the three levels in the Temple of the Spirit of Truth, which is in the process of building on the Southern Universal Gate, the Path of the Initiate begins with a Spiritual School for the awakening souls, develops into a Mystery School for the awakening Divine Selves and is crowned with Apostleship in the Testament of Truth and participation in the great Divine Action for the establishment of the Kingdom of God on Earth.
In essence, the Steps on the Path are not crystallised and encapsulated within themselves. In fact, each Step projects itself onto all others and all others are projected onto it. This holistic principle opens endless possibilities for mutual projections and for the unfolding of each Step through the prism of the whole Rainbow Path. As a result, we could go deeper and deeper into the essence of every Step experiencing through it the richness of all others.
On this important holistic principle the whole Nine-Fold Rainbow Path is built and this principle directs the spiritual activities of its followers. From this perspective, the Path of the Initiate is open for everyone who is interested, but, of course, the participants will receive in accordance with their level of spiritual development and commitment.
Here we could compare the journey on the Nine-Fold Path of the Divine Rainbow with a climber's expedition in the Himalayas. In it, part of the group stays in the base camp, another part builds the intermediary camp, while the most prepared climb to the top of the summit. In all cases however the group acts as a whole and the success, even of a single person, is the result of the activity of the whole group and brings fruit for everyone.
So, when the advanced followers on the Path of the Divine Rainbow enter into the Heavenly Jerusalem they are able to visit the various temples of the world religions and to receive, in person, the Initiations of the Divine Masters, founders of the religions. The bearers of the Spirit of Truth help and accelerate this process through their direct connection with the Divine Masters and by shedding light on the whole Heavenly Jerusalem as the Kingdom of God with many mansions. Thus the metaphysical aspect in the Testament of Truth is fulfilled. For the realisation of the metahistorical aspect however the initiates have to gather in the centre of the Heavenly Jerusalem in front of the Throne of God and to experience the great mysteries of the New Pentecost and the Second Coming.
3. The New Pentecost and
Meeting the Second Coming
The metahistorical aspect in the realisation of the Testament of Truth is the conclusion of the whole Hindu-European cycle and experiencing the great spiritual riches gathered by humankind for more than ten thousand years. It is connected with the fulfillment of the prophecies of the world religions and meeting the Second Coming (or the New Coming, or the Coming) of the Divine Masters.
For this purpose the advanced followers on the Path of the Initiate have to ascend to the Highest Divine World, to the centre of the Heavenly Jerusalem, and to experience a majestic new integral Pentecost and to meet the new coming of the Divine Masters.
After they receive initiation from the Divine Masters in various Temples of the Heavenly Jerusalem the initiated followers on the Path of the Divine Rainbow are ready mystically to stand in the centre of the Heavenly Jerusalem, in front of the Throne of God. In moments of culmination in prayer and meditation the human being could become a witness, even a participant, in the Divine Service in front of the Throne of God in which emotional apocalyptic events connected with the new manifestations of the Divine Masters and the manifestations of the Divine Feminine are happening. During such emotional services in the Highest Divine World the participants become initiated into the mysteries of the New Pentecost and the Second Coming of the Divine Masters.
From the Acts of the Apostles we know that on Pentecost the promise of the Lord Jesus Christ was fulfilled (John 14: 26; 16: 14). On Pentecost not only the apostles but many of the people present around them in Jerusalem experienced the descent of the Holy Spirit and received of the spiritual treasures which the Lord Jesus Christ brought on Earth.
Now through the Testament of Truth, from the centre of the Heavenly Jerusalem, the Living God will bless us with a new majestic integral Pentecost. This time the Holy Spirit will reveal the whole spiritual history of humankind in the Hindu-European cycle, initiation after initiation, so that all twelve gates of the Heavenly Jerusalem will be open and the people will become able to experience simultaneously the richness of many spiritual traditions Hermetism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Zoroastrism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and others. Thus the Holy Spirit will open the Book of the Living where all initiations from the Hindu-European cycle are written.
When a human being receives enlightenment he comprehends all his life, sees all previous incarnations and brings the spiritual achievements from them into his new life as an initiate. He builds himself as a temple of God and the enlightenment which came is the Spirit of God who begins to live in him. In a similar way the enlightened humankind will see all cultural historical epochs in the Hindu-European cycle through which it has passed in order to bring the initiations from its spiritual history into the New Cycle of Existence.
In order to enter into the New Cycle of Existence however, the participants have to meet the New Coming of the Divine Masters and the Personifications of the Divine Feminine connected with them. The New Pentecost and the Second Coming are activated by the apocalyptic act of the One Who sits on the throne and makes all things new (Revelation 21:5). This time the Divine Masters will manifest themselves simultaneously, participating altogether in the New Creation. Each one of the Masters brings a new Initiation, while the personifications of the Divine Feminine, connected with them, receive a new spiritual mission linked with the mystery of the Divine Wedding through which the Lord creates everything new.
The new initiations of the Divine Masters will be very closely interconnected and will depict the whole reality of the Kingdom of God with its many mansions. Each one of them will incorporate all the others, but according to its own spiritual approach. We could also compare the Second Coming of the Divine Masters with the joint construction of a majestic Divine Temple with many different but transparent chapels from which one could observe the whole Temple. The result of this universal multidimensional integration of all new initiations is a dynamic unity in diversity, because all of them integrate the same reality of the Kingdom of God, and diversity in unity because each one of them integrates the others differently.
The Masters, according to their promises, can appear in any level of Creation, but regardless of their actual manifestations, they will proclaim the wholeness of Being on both the macrocosmic and microcosmic levels. For instance, Christ, the Son of Man will appear, coming on the clouds with great power and glory (Mark 13: 26), i.e. He will appear in His universal body, in the highest Divine world, as the Light of the whole of Creation. The Hebrew Messiah will come to lead the New Exodus of representatives of all world religions to the Promised Land (the Kingdom of God, the seven Heavens) and will inaugurate the Third Temple the whole Universe as a Divine Temple. Zoroaster may manifest in the heavenly worlds as an inner Guide within our souls and spirits and will reveal the mystery of the great cosmic-spiritual Sun which gives eternal life to all of Creation. The coming of Maitreya-Buddha will result in a great, staggering Enlightenment revealing the totality of all existence and embracing the past, the present and the future of humankind. The Divine guru Ramakrishna was an embodiment of Rama and Krishna; in his Second Coming he can even become a manifestation of Masters from different traditions in order to confirm the absolute mystical unity of all religions.
Each one of the Masters, and the personifications of the Divine Feminine as well, will find the most appropriate male and female, physical, etheric, heavenly or universal bodies to manifest the great apocalyptic event of the Second Coming. This is why we will have many incarnations, embodiments, personifications and manifestations related to the mystery of the Second Coming in all three worlds. On the other hand, many human beings will be directly inspired by the Masters and will become their channels, witnesses, messengers, collaborators and co-creators.
The participants in the Divine Service in front of the Throne of God will meet the new coming of the Divine Masters and the personifications of the Divine Feminine and will receive their new initiations for co-creation with God. This will happen in emotional spiritual events similar to those of the first coming of the Masters. Let us remember the apostles around Christ, the disciples around Buddha, the priests and the elders around Moses, the friends around Muhammad, the first disciples around the Master Beinsa Douno and many other emotional stories connected with the coming of the great spiritual Masters. This time the followers on the Path of the Initiate have to experience similar Divine events in connection with their second or new coming.
For instance we could expect that when the initiates on the Divine Rainbow Path are ready, the Cosmic Christ will bless them in the name of the cosmic-spiritual Cross of Immortality. The Master Beinsa Douno will introduce them into the great celestial school of the Universal Brotherhood; the coming Maitreya Buddha will bless them with a great new Enlightenment, while the Divine Guru Babaji will include them in his legendary group of initiates in the Himalayas; the coming Messiah will initiate them in the new Commandments from the Lord God Almighty, while the Imam Mahdi, up to now in occultation, will reveal himself to them and will lead them on an emotional spiritual journey (similar to the night journey of Muhammad) through the whole vertical structure of Creation up to the Garden of Truth.
It is hard to imagine a more emotional and inspiring spiritual work here on Earth than this one connected with the experience of the New Pentecost and meeting the new coming of the Divine Masters and the personifications of the Divine Feminine linked with them. This will be a mystical closure of the old Hindu-European cycle in the history of humankind and entry into the New Cycle of Existence, developing the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth. In essence this means to participate in the mysteries of the Divine Wedding in Heaven (as a result of which the New Reality comes into existence) and to co-create with God.
4. Participation in the Divine Wedding and
Co-creation with God
The metacultural aspect in the fulfillment of the Testament of Truth is the entry of humankind as God's people into the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth and the beginning of the New Cycle in its evolution. This cycle is connected with participation in the great Divine Wedding in Heaven and spiritual co-creation with the Divine Masters and the personifications of the Divine Feminine for the coming of the Kingdom of God on Earth.
The birth of the New Heaven and the New Earth comes as a realisation of the Divine Wedding between the Divine Spirit and the Divine Feminine, i.e. between the Universal Masculine and Feminine Principles in Creation. In this respect we could speak about the archetypes of the Celestial Father and the Celestial Mother who are radiations from the Absolute Origin of Being.
From the point of view of this new archetype the Divine Spirit is the essence of the Subjective Principle in Creation, while the Divine Feminine is the essence of the Objective Principle which manifests and sustains Creation; the Divine Spirit is the Sacred Word through which everything was created, the Divine Feminine is Creation Itself; the Divine Spirit is the light of the world, the Divine Feminine is the manifested world illuminated by this light; the Divine Spirit is a manifestation of the Universal Spirit in Creation, the Divine Feminine is a manifestation of the Universal Soul in Creation; the Divine Spirit is the Living Water for Eternal Life, the Divine Feminine is the river of the water of life clear as crystal which springs from the Throne of God (Revelation 22:1); the Divine Spirit is the living Bread coming from Heaven, the Divine Feminine is the One who nourishes all living beings with this bread; the Divine Spirit develops the human being as a Temple of God, the Divine Feminine sustains this holy Temple within the human being.
When the One who sits on the throne makes everything new, the Divine Spirit and the Divine Feminine, in absolute harmony and collaboration, create the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth and give birth to the New Transcendent Humankind. This is realised in the process of the new coming of the Divine Masters and the Divine Wedding between the Universal Divine Spirit and the Universal Divine Feminine. This is the great creative act of the Lord, which we could contemplate and in which we are called to participate through the Divine Service in front of the Throne of God.
The Divine Service in the centre of the Heavenly Jerusalem is not a single demiurgic act but a continuous dynamic process of new Creation. Let us remember here the majestic Divine Service described by St. John in the Book of Revelation (Chapter 4) where the twenty-four Elders and the four mythological creatures, day and night, glorify the Lord (Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who was, Who is and Who is to come). This is the way in which they participate in the Divine unfoldment of Creation. This is why the event of the new coming of the Divine Masters and the appearance of many manifestations of the Divine Feminine is not a single apocalyptic event, but a continual living process. We have not only to meet them but to live with them where they are (John 14: 1-3), i.e. they create unceasingly in the Highest Divine World and we co-create with them. Of course first we have to meet them mystically and to see their new Divine manifestation from the Lord who creates all things new. After this however we have to witness and to participate in the creative process which they unfold, fulfilling the great Messianic Plan for the enlightenment of humankind and all of Creation.
The Messianic Prophecies in the various world religions, such as the Second Coming of Christ, the coming of Maitreya-Buddha, the coming of the Messiah, the reappearance of Imam Mahdi, etc., are predictions given by the Lord to the Divine Masters or to some of their closest disciples. They are in the Causal World and if we compare them with living seeds they are in the 'storehouse' of human evolution. Fulfilling the Testament of Truth with the blessing of the Masters, we have very carefully to sow these seeds (i.e. all the predictions about the Second Coming, the Divine Wedding the Reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth and others) in fertile soil in order for them to sprout. In this process however the first task is to prepare them for sowing. This means to transform them from their archetypal metaphysical form into concrete ideas which have to become the basis for inspiring spiritual work. In this respect the Revelation of St. John, a sacred book sealed with seven seals, has to become a plan and scenario for action.
In other words we have to take these sacred ideas, transform them into living impulses for spiritual work and sow them in fertile soil in the Divine Garden. Naturally we ourselves have to become the fertile soil. We have to accept in our souls the living seeds of the Second Coming of the Divine Masters which they left to us as a promise in their First Coming and start taking care of them, growing them in our souls and spirits. This is a very refined and emotional process. With great devotion, joy and appreciation, in prayers and creative meditation, we will water the seeds in this Divine Garden by developing 'Second Coming consciousness' (accepting the Initiation of the Spirit of Truth) and these seeds will sprout through our living mystical contact with the Masters and receiving the new creative impulses coming from them.
So, the fulfilment of the Testament of Truth is realised in the Centre of the Heavenly Jerusalem, but projected here on Earth where the predictions about the Second Coming of the Divine Masters and the re-creation of the world become the basis of our inspired Divine work. As a result of our co-creation with the Masters and the manifestations of the Divine Feminine the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth comes into existence. This is a continuous process and we start living in a new dynamic, creative Universe. Thus the meeting of the Second Coming and the participation in the Divine Wedding is the beginning of the New Cycle of humankinds evolution.
Therefore, through the New Pentecost, on the one hand, the spiritual treasures from the first coming of the Masters are gathered and the Hindu-European cycle in human evolution is concluded in its fullness and wholeness. Through the meeting of the Second Coming of the Divine Masters and participation in the Divine Wedding, on the other hand, we are entering into the New Cycle of Existence which is a continuous creative spiritual process. In it the life of every human being, of all humankind, of the whole of Creation "blossoms as the Tree of Life". This is the realisation of the Testament of Truth, which the Lord God envisaged in the Messianic Plan!
