About the Seven Rays

 

by George A. Boyd © 1999

The Seven Rays

The Seven Rays emanate from the Hierarchy of Light at Planetary, Cosmic, Supracosmic and Transcendental octaves of the Great Continuum of Consciousness. The Seven Rays exist in many different expressions. The classical names for these Rays are:

1st – The Ray of Divine Will

2nd – The Ray of Love Wisdom

3rd – The Ray of Active Intelligence

4th – The Ray of the Harmony of Opposites

5th – The Ray of Concrete Knowledge

6th – The Ray of Devotion

7th – The Ray of Ceremonial Magic

In the Mudrashram® System of Integral Meditation, you will encounter these Seven Rays in the following forms:

People see things differently than you because they see through the filter of another Ray. Understanding the Rays will help you to better understand others, and your own nature. Use the template of the Seven Rays to gain insight into the structure of nature and consciousness.
