It is, in fact, little more than a reflection of it in the grosser matter of the astral plane. Such an endeavor has been made in Plate XXVI, but an effort of the imagination even greater than usual is necessary to complete the picture, by reason of the fact that the leadbeated of this causal body have two characteristics which are irreconcilable here on the physical plane.

It would be impossible visile take again out of the bucket the same glass of water, but every glassful taken out afterwards will necessarily be colored by the matter brought in from that first glass.

There is a good deal of selfishness and avarice, and a certain capability of inisible is also apparent. It is an intensification of the life in various directions.

There is still a good deal of the scarlet which marks liability to anger, but it is noticeable that it now takes a much lower place in the cloud, which means an improvement in the general quality of the matter of which this mind body is composed.

The process by which the colors leadbwater produced works always from below upward. But although the man now possesses a causal body, he is very far from being sufficiently conscious to receive or respond to impressions at that level; and since the appointed method for the evolution of his latent qualities is, as has been said, by means of impacts from without, it is obviously necessary that he should descend far enough to meet such impacts as can affect him.

So it will be seen that we are justified in speaking of the action of desire in the mineral kingdom. Nitin Sonawane rated it it was amazing Jan 20, This indicates that the man has his desires thoroughly under the control of the mind, and is no longer liable to be swept away from the firm base of reason by wild surges of emotion.


Naturally enough, that part of the faculty which usually opens first is the lowest, the nearest to the physical, and a man may often for very many years be able to see only the denser kinds of astral matter.

A factor which has its share in helping to preserve the astral shape unchanged after death is the thought of others. Theosophy comes forward with a theory based upon entirely different foundations. Such a man during life has invusible dim consciousness in his astral body while asleep, and after death he is very fully conscious and active on the lower astral sub planes.

What His Bodies Show Us. So absolutely is laedbeater that leadbrater earthly left behind by the aspirant who attains its transcendent glory, that some European Orientalists fell at first into the mistake of supposing that it was viskble entire annihilation of the man – an idea than which nothing could be more utterly the opposite of the truth.

To aid us the better to comprehend this, let us turn to Plate IV. The order of the colors differs according leadbearer the type to which the Adept belongs, so that there are several well-marked varieties amid their glory. Even these, however, are found to be units only from the point of view of our physical plane; that is to say, there are methods by which even they can be subdivided, but when they are so broken up they give us matter belonging to a different realm of nature.

Thus none can come within the range of his influence without being the better for it he shines upon all around him like the sun, for, like it, he has become a manifestation of the Logos.

Theosophy : Man Visible and Invisible by C.W. Leadbeater

He would indeed be conscious of the ocean, but for him the shore and the cliffs would not exist; he would perceive the clouds very clearly, but would see almost nothing of the landscape over which they were moving. If we now turn to Plate X we shall find the astral body which corresponds to the mental body in Plate IX – the astral body of the ordinary man.

It manifests itself in a phenomenon, which, though upon a higher plane, has a curious resemblance to the way in which a cell divides. It is found that ladbeater individualization which lifts an entity definitely from the animal kingdom into the human, can take place only from certain types of animals.


Plate II – Planes of Nature. Colors and Their Meaning.

Man, Visible and Invisible by Charles W. Leadbeater

These spots gradually fade away, but their places are taken by others, for the irritable man is never at a loss for subjects of annoyance. The case of the irritable man is a good specimen of these.

The name of Buddhi has been given to that principle or component part of man which manifests itself through the matter of the fourth plane, while the mental plane is the sphere of action of what we call the mind in man.

In a healthy man the spleen does its work in so generous a fashion that the specialized life-force is present in very large quantities, and is constantly radiating from the body in all directions. So, in the course of his many lives, man develops within himself many qualities, some good, some evil; but while all good development is steadily stored up and accumulated within the causal body, that which is evil can express itself only through the lower vehicles, and so is comparatively impermanent.

If it is impossible to attempt to illustrate the causal body of the Master; it may yet be worth while to give some idea of the relative size and appearance of that of one of his more advanced pupils – one who has attained that fourth stage of the path which in Oriental books is called that of the Arhat.

These are names given in order to indicate a certain quality of the matter of the plane; in the lower part of it the matter is very readily moulded by the action of human thought into definite forms, while on the higher division visiblw does not occur, but the more abstract thought of that level expresses itself to the eye of the clairvoyant in flashes or streams.

The force itself is naturally invisible, like all other forces; but as it exists around us in the atmosphere it clothes itself in millions of tiny particles which are colorless though intensely maan. There is one point in connection with the junction which we have been trying to describe which requires further explanation.

Thanks for telling us about the problem.
