In our race we find the "lights which ever shine."
This is the individualization of the sixth race types who came in in the
In the next chain to ours on the evolutionary arc individualization
will take place during the sixth race of the second round. TCF 459.
Thus the Monads of Class 2 reach the incipient
human stage only in the Second Round. SD1 173.
The Second Round brought forth and developed two Elements -- Fire and
Earth -- and its humanity, adapted to this condition of Nature, if we can give the name Humanity to beings living under
conditions unknown to men, was -- to use again a familiar phrase in a strictly figurative sense (the only way in
which it can be used correctly) -- "a two-dimensional species." SD1 251.
A condition of nebulosity of a pronouncedly volatile
condition, marked the first round and race. Movement, and the accompaniment of heat, is their distinguishing
quality, much as in System I, but in the second round, and also in the second race, a definite cohesion is noticeable,
and form is more clearly recognizable in outline. TCF 579.
JC: Second round, second race a definite cohesion took place
regarding the human form with individualisation taking place in the sixth race for what are now highly advanced Initiate
These other alchemical workers are concerned with the liquid action of divine manifestation.
They work, therefore, in cooperation with the devas of the waters, or liquid substance ... The history
of the second round; this secret when revealed will make clear why man (under the law) should be a vegetarian and not carnivorous. TCF 932.
second Round, Earth -- hitherto a foetus in the matrix of Space -- began its real existence:
it had developed individual sentient life, its second principle. The second corresponds to the sixth (principle); the second is life
continuous, the other, temporary." SD1 260.
In the second round and the second root-racetouch
was evolved. TCF 351.
The second Ray only came into power in the second round. TCF 426.
JC: The Tibetan DK remarks that those advanced
humanity which posses of a consciousness equal to that of the coming sixth race of this fourth round of "strictly human
races" indeed individualised in the second round as jelly like astral/etheric though condensing more like men,
later becoming more solid and human though crawling on the ground as do our reptiles and serpents. The individualised
lesser "serpents" who "scarcely felt" the vibration of SK are now the serpent Initiates
under the rule of Sanat Kumara our planetary Logos who is called "The Living Serpent". The mystery is
that man as second round reptile like form even with somewhat serrated skin, took sustenance from the vegetable kingdom with all taking their physical vitality
from the watery element as the vegetable kingdom does today. Each kingdom serves the next and the vegetable kingdom serves
the animal form of man of the second and fourth round. Here we have a physical and also a psychic connection.
heavenly serpent manifested, being produced out of the egg, and began its convolutions, gaining in strength and majesty, and
producing through its immense fecundity millions of lesser "serpents." The reptile kingdom
is the most important part of the animal kingdom in certain aspects, if such an apparently contradictory statement can be
made. For all animal life can be seen passing through it during the prenatal stage, or returning to it when the form is in
advanced decomposition. The connection is not purely a physical one, but it is also psychic. When the real nature and method
of the kundalini, or serpent fire, is known, this relation will be better understood, and the history
of thesecond round assume a new importance. TCF 894.
As stated in various occult books, many of the present advanced
humanity individualized on the moon chain, and only took physical bodies in the earth chain during the fourth
root-race, thus escaping incarnation during the first three rounds, and the first two races of the fourth round. TCF 365.
"This the soul does through the medium of five stages, steps or initiations which are the correspondence in
the interior life of the soul to the five stages whereby expression is developed in the strictly human races, beginning with
the Lemurian stage, passing through the Atlantean and the Aryan, and so on through the two final races upon our planet in
this world cycle.
In connection with individualization the following points should be remembered:
upon the moon chain took place in the fifth race of the third round.
2. In Lemurian days, individualization took place because
it was the third root race and the fourth round.
3. In Atlantis, the door of initiation opened, and forced initiation
became the objective of the best of the human family. Those who could or can thus become initiate are the "lights which ever
radiate." In Lemurian days it was the "lights which ever burn" that came into being.
4. In our race
we find the "lights which ever shine." This is the individualization of the sixth race types
who came in in the second round. EP2 210.
The second Ray of Love-Wisdom leads from love or divine desire in the
second race to full intuitional understanding in the sixth race... the sanctified and free devotion of one-pointedness in
the next or sixth race EP1 318.
JC: It is said in the secret doctrine that it was back in the second root
race that the first and latent germ of mind, also sometimes called a spark, was implanted by Asuras and the Kumaras, so I
think this might be considered also. Further more let us note the above from DK who makes the incredible statement of fact
concerning our more advanced Initiates and Masters. They are today the sixth race types in consciousness and are the highly
advanced human Hierarchy of Initiates and forerunners of the sixth race... "the Buddha of the Sixth Race"SD3. ... "The Sixth
Race will have the perfection of form with the highest intelligence and spirituality."SD3. "Our Lord Buddha -- a 6th
r. man" KH Letters.
let us digest for a moment that according to TCF and SD Lord Buddha is a sixth round man or equivalent to the level of achievement that
humanity will generally accomplish in the sixth round in acquired consciousness here on Earth. Plato was a fifth
round man as are all fifth degree Masters and also possibly some of those soon to take this 5th Initiation in this 4th round.
It indicates that the Buddha has taken the first part of the dual seventh Initiation and has fully mastered the sixth plane
of the Solar System and is in process of obtaining control of the seventh.
It carries with it the capacity
to have full conscious control on the seven planes of the solar system, and covers that period of development
which is undergone in a planetary chain during the fourth, fifth, and sixth rounds. TCF 290.
In the sixth Round of the present
chain of the Earth scheme, the sixth law will demonstrate with great clarity and force, as love shown in brotherhood, love
translated or transmuted from the astral to the buddhic. So in the sixth root-race and the sixth subrace a similar analogy
will be seen. TCF 595.
Plato and Confucius were fifth round men and our Lord a sixth round man (the mystery
of his avatar is spoken of in my forthcoming letter) and not even Gautama Buddha's son was anything but a fourth round man.
The United States fulfils the same office for the sixth or coming subrace,
which is the germ race for the future sixth great race, whilst Brazil will function as the
leading division of the great sixth race. These three races embody the attractive cohesive aspect of the
second ray, and will demonstrate it through wisdom and wise government, based on idealism and love. The United States will
therefore represent a fusion of races, with the Anglo-Saxon element dominating. Brazil will
later represent the best of that which the Latin races have eventually to give. This presented fusion will
be considered from the angle of the ray types and the basic unfolding principles, and not from the angle of culture
and civilization. EP1 387.
statement that the great Kumara or the One Initiator came to this planet from Venus is true in so far as it embodies the fact
that He came to this dense planet (the fourth) in the fourth chain from that chain in our scheme which is called the 'Venus'
chain, and which is the second chain. He came via the second globe in our chain; His scarcely
felt vibration was sensed (occultly) in the second round, but only in the third root-race of the fourth round did
conditions permit of His physical incarnation and of His coming as the Avatar. EA 687.
