Based on the state of spiritual evolution and karmic impedance of the inner vehicles, initial experiences in meditation may have certain characteristic content. Science focuses the attention from Physical 1 through Physical 7. At the densest pole, you are only aware of the gross anatomical structures and sensations in the body. As the transmuting fire begins to refine the vehicles, you become aware of progressively finer states.

Certain teachings tend to focus the attention in different states. For example, psychic teaching focuses the attention along the continuum from Etheric 7 to Emotional 5. Christianity and Judaism, teachings of the first exoteric Planetary Initiation, focus the attention in the range of Emotional 6 through Mental 2. The Philosopher-Kings and Magi of the Mystery Schools operate in Mental 3.

In the Mudrashram® Master Course in Meditation, we direct the attention in the range of Mental 4 through Supramental 3. In the Mudrashram® Advanced Course in Meditation and Satsang Program, we guide participants to the higher octaves of ensoulment, and to cognize the elements of Supramental 4 through Supramental 7.

The capacity to study your self is a function of the witnessing mind, first encountered in its own nature on Mental 7. The capacity to work on your self, to do spiritual practice, is the faculty of the attentional principle and the spirit, at Supramental 1 and 2. The inner teacher and knower within everyone, the ensouling entity, is encountered at Supramental 3. Disciples and Initiates who initiate others work with the flame of the Spirit and the seed mantra of unfoldment, Supramental 4 and 5.

Attention is the key to self-study and activation of the faculties within whereby you can engage in inner work. The ability to do spiritual work is contingent upon the degree to which an individual can consciously function at the level of the attentional principle and spirit, and at the Supramental levels.

The activity of a Master is geared towards awakening those two principles within—the attentional principle and spirit—and guiding the individual to carry out conscious inner transformation.
