is a very simple generic meditation form. It can be used for any meditation work including one's
daily morning meditation or meditation within a workshop group or at a
full moon meeting. It is designed for group meditation, yet, as we
know, all of our meditation work, including the meditation work we do alone, is group meditation. So, please feel free to adapt this form to fit your specific situation.

BUILDING THE CHALICE
At this point, we prepare the group instrument for an
act of group service upon the plane of mind. Pause. We gather and blend
our forces into a sincere desire and determined will to be a ready
instrument for the Forces of Light and Love. With the physical eyes
closed, see with the mind's eye two persons in this group
with whom you already feel a sense of fellowship in service—whether they
are present here or at a distance … See them and yourself as three
points of a triangle … Turn toward them with your heart ...
Visualize a stream of loving regard, of heart energy, flowing around the
triangle from you ... to first one … on to the other ... and return ...
Again, send a stream of loving regard from you ... to one, on to the
other, and return ... Once more, send love from you ... to one, on to the
other, and return—thus circulating heart energy around the triangle three
Now, let individual persons fade out of your field of
visualization. See each triangle simply as a three-pointed field of heart
energy ... the triangles interlacing with one another … weaving the group
chalice. Thus is created the light body of this group. It is a chalice
built of relationships, bright and shining with service. Pause. Now, as
one group self, see our group connecting through loving recognition with
two other groups on the planet. Thus we revitalize the planetary network of light and love through which the energy of the reappearing Christ is infusing the world.
LIFTING THE CHALICE
Let us raise the chalice, now, into the Light of
As one group self we recognize and take our place within
the Ashram of Synthesis. We recognize and honor the Presence of our three Elder Brothers, our Masters and Guides, sending to them our love and gratitude for all that they do for us. Master Morya, Master
Djwhal Khul, Master Rakoczi.
We project a line of light and love through the Ashram to the Christ who
stands at the heart of the Ashram of Sanat Kumara, the Lord of the World.
The Christ stands at the center of a great triangle made up of the Buddha,
The Avatar of Synthesis and the Spirit of Peace. Pause. See the energy of
the Christ carrying the energy of these three great lords radiating
throughout the Hierarchy. Standing within the field of this radiance, let
us affirm together: “We assert the fact of our identification with
Christ, Hierarchy, Humanity.”
Extend the antahkarana towards Shamballa, the
where the Will of God is known and held.
Holding this alignment, let us open to impression.
[Insert Seed Thought here (silence 10-20 minutes).]
(Allow 3 to 5 minutes for this activity.)
Very gently allow the abstract mind to impress the
cleared and waiting lower mental substance with the insights gained in the
FILLING THE CHALICE
(Anchoring and distributing the energy)
See the energies of Shamballa and the Christ,
transmitting the energies of the Buddha, the Avatar of Synthesis and the
Spirit of Peace flowing to all life on Earth.
Together sound the affirmation:
At the center of all love we stand; from that
center, we, the soul, will outward move; from that center, we, the one
who serves, will work. May the love of the divine Self be shed abroad,
in our heart, through our group and throughout the world.

See these energies flowing through the five planetary
inlets—New York, London, Geneva, Darjeeling and Tokyo—and through our
group, blending with the energies of the New Group of World Servers and
with those of people of goodwill everywhere, creating a pathway of Light
for the descent of the Christ to Earth. Then see the energy flowing into
the divine, lighted center of Earth itself, radiating and uplifting the
substance of the Earth.
Sound the Great Invocation, seeing the invoked energies
distributed through the 5 planetary inlets and throughout the
consciousness of humanity.
