Q: You use a term, Dhana, in your writing. What does this mean?
A: Dhana refers to the activation of the attentional principle or the spirit to carry out spiritual ministry. This is primarily an attunement that comes from a spiritual Master to send the Light to selected individuals; in advanced disciples that reach the Cosmic Sphere and above, this beam of overshadowing can also come from their own ensouling entity.
In Planetary, Transplanetary, Cosmic, and Supracosmic levels, the Master makes this attunement with the attentional principle; in contrast, on Transcendental Paths, this attunement is commonly made with the spirit.
For the attentional principle, we begin the training process of making attunements with our Light Sittings. Those who choose the teaching empowerment track on the Bridge Path learn a series of other attunements that can be made with vehicles of the personality, vehicles of consciousness and nuclei of identity in the Superconscious mind, spirits in different domains, and with ensouling entities of different Octaves of Being.
While we tend to think of Dhana as activating the power of attunement and conveying the Light to grant initiation—unfolding the spiritual evolutionary potentials of the ensouling entity and its vehicles—it can empower the attentional principle though any of the Seven Rays. Across the Rays, this spiritual anointing of the attentional principle can emphasize:
First Ray – Attunement, Light Ministry, conveying Initiation
Second Ray – Teaching, inspired discourse (Satsang)
Third Ray – Counseling, practical guidance for life and living
Fourth Ray – Guiding the attentional principle or the spirit on the inner Planes
Fifth Ray – Contemplation of the vehicles of consciousness and the Planes of Light, doing spiritual readings
Sixth Ray – Healing and therapy, working with the core painful issues of the heart
Seventh Ray – Coaching, revealing the stages of the Path ahead and the next steps of personal growth
When this attunement is made with the spirit, it bestows the ability to convey attunements (First Ray), to teach and give Satsang (Second Ray), to guide others (Fourth Ray), and to heal others (Sixth Ray)—it does not typically activate the capabilities of the Third, Fifth, or Seventh Ray.
When the ensouling entity encounters a new ability on the inner Planes, it encounters an inner structure we call a Siddhi Yantra. This vortex of the octaves of volition in the Superconscious mind can express in five ways:
- The power or ability can be ignored and not activated
- The ensouling entity can use its octave of volition to activate the power directly
- The ensouling entity can send the power through the attentional principle or spirit—this is the attunement of Dhana
- The ensouling entity can anchor the ability in an inner center of the Subconscious or Superconscious mind; you must travel to this inner location to activate the power
- The ensouling entity can anchor the ability in the personality and the brain, so you only need to ask for the power to be activated.
Dhana is an element of the advanced practice of Agni Yoga, which trains you to draw down the inner Light from your Soul and from your Supervising Initiate. As you grow spiritually and activate more of your Soul’s abilities, you expand your scope of potential ministry and your capacity to operate in the posture of Dhana.
We teach the initial practices of Agni Yoga in our intermediate meditation classes, the in-person Mudrashram® Master Course in Meditation and the by-mail and online Accelerated Meditation Program. We encourage to learn this ministry using the inner Light Fire, so you can begin to become a conscious co-worker with the Divine and work with the Masters to uplift humanity.
