Suddha Dharma Mandalam

In 1915, Sri Subramania Iyer.[1], Vakil of the Court of Madras, India, and Vice President of the Theosophical Society, which, at that time, was presided by Annie Bessant, published several articles in The Theosophist Magazine [2], turning public information about the existence of The Great White Hierarchy [3] of the Himalayas, under the name of Suddha Dharma Mandalam. Until that moment this information was exclusive of small groups of Great Initiates.

Brief History

Soon after this public disclosure, a group of studies and practices was established on behalf of Suddha Dharma Mandalam, to promote the opening of its doors to all human beings, regardless of gender, social status or any other form of discrimination [4], so that all those who dedicate themselves would be able to, in any time or condition, make contact with the great divine beings and serve to the extensive administration of the planet, material and spiritual .

In the following years were published precious books [5] for all those who, with an open and willing spirit, would have a clear idea of how the Universe works, what is the relative human position in this great work and, mainly, to have access to practices that ensure material and spiritual progress, as well as contact with the Masters of Suddha Dharma Mandalam.

By making public the existence of a huge group of divine beings, constantly working for the protection of all existences and development of progress and well-being, it turned to be a great moment in the history of divine revelations that alter the course of human history.

The articles aroused great spiritual interest in many people, who requested the entrance to the Sacred Order [6] to the external authorities of Suddha Dharma Mandalam.

Over the following years, and as an effect of understanding and practicing the wise teachings, new Centers were opened around the world, drawing special attention to the one that was established in Santiago, Chile, under the auspicious of Benjamin Guzmán Valenzuela, who, until the time of his death carried out an apostolic work, helping to open centers in Brazil, Argentina, and Colombia.

The need for Suddha Dharma Mandalam to be publicly disclosed

Through the study of several published books and by practicing the methods that open up the perception of wider and inclusive worlds than humanity uses as standards of normality, it is concluded that the Sacred Order, Suddha Dharma Mandalam, has always been behind the wide variety of religious expressions of all times, according to the needs of the time and places where they arose.

Dharma is the expression of how things work, the spirit of the law.

There are temporary Dharmas [7], which serve to temporary purposes, and there is the eternal Dharma [8], the Suddha Dharma, which is valid at any time and place.

The spiritual organization Suddha Dharma Mandalam estimated that, as all the temporary Dharmas ceased to have a positive and auspicious effect on humanity, the time had come when only through the practice of the eternal Dharma, the Suddha, would humanity have its progress guaranteed.

Main objectives of Suddha Dharma Mandalam external activities[9]

  1. To study the nature of human beings and the Universe.
  2. To investigate and understand the relative position of human beings in the Universe.
  3. To coordinate the experiences of inner and outer lives.
  4. To reach the divine perception through the Synthesis of Yoga with the help of Initiations (Dikshas), granted by the Hierarchy, under the direction of Sri Bhagavan Narayana, who occupies the position of the entity on which there is speculation in all the religions and to which the name of God is attributed.

Methods and Practices

The eternal method, the Suddha Dharma, through which all human beings, regardless of their social status, gender, or any other distinction, can guarantee the contact with this Sacred Order and progress on the material and spiritual path, is the one denominated Suddha Raja Yoga [10].

Although in our time Yoga is associated with the physical practices of Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga does not involve any type of physical activity to open the divine perception [11]

Its principle is that in every living being there is a divine spark of infinite reality, which remains trapped inside, until the living being takes care of placing it in the proper place where it belongs, as the ruler and guidance of attitudes and activities.

Suddha Raja Yoga is the unique eternal method of awakening the divine spark and it is from there that all activities are guided by it, also allowing to make contact with the Masters of the Sacred Order.

Joining the Order

It is worth mentioning that, despite the time of public disclosure of the activities of the Suddha Dharma Mandalam Order, at the beginning of the 20th century, and the place, in India, subject to a social system of castes, from the beginning it was clear that entrance and participation in the Order would not be subjected to distinctions of any kind, be it gender, caste or any other type.

Thus, among other great revolutions that started with the opening up and widening of Divine activities, it is worth highlighting its role in promoting equal opportunities for all human beings, a feat that today we take for granted, but that at the time of its publication was a revolutionary movement.

The Avatars

It seems that if the Divine Hierarchy, from time to time, is not directly involved with the affairs of humanity, humanity itself would stop seeking its spiritual progress. Hence, at certain times, an emanation from the Director of the Divine Hierarchy embodies the human form, submitted to its limitations, but demonstrating that it can still exist with the wholeness of divine being. The presence of Avatars through the ages marks important moments in history, always establishing turning points that, from then on, takes and goes on taking a long time to be assimilated by humanity.

Avatars always were and continue to be, the figures around which human beings have the living example about what humanity can conquer.

They were born at different times and with different capacities, always influencing human history, but, until now, expressing themselves locally, through specifical people.

By now, this has changed as well, because publications and meditation practices that open the perception of those who dedicate themselves, make it clear that the current Avatar is already among us and that this time it has a worldwide reach. Although the Avatar does not show in public now, he is dedicated to the work subtly.

The new Avatar [12] is called Mitra Deva and was born on January 16, 1919.

He is the only true incarnated Master of today, all the others, who call themselves Masters, or who are treated as such, do not hold the necessary degree to deserve this title.

Therefore, much of the Suddha doctrine is based on that no one needs to worship human Masters [13], but dedicate to practices that serve to establish a link of inner contact and inspiration, working in telepathic union, or at least aspiring to establish this link.

Current Status of the external Centers Suddha Dharma Mandalam

Benjamin Guzmán Valenzuela's work, while alive, had surprisingly unified the external work of the Sacred Order, through the efforts of many people.

This unification soon lost its grip after his death and nowadays the Center of Santiago in Chile does not represent a force that unites the other centers which, also, mostly are losing the original purity of the eternity of the teachings, mixing with other doctrines, such as Hatha Yoga, Ayurveda or Astrology and this confuses public opinion regarding the transcendence and importance of the work.

There are cases of people who manage Suddha Dharma Mandalam Centers that, contrary to what the doctrine assures, strive to be treated as spiritual Masters, something that adds chaos to the landscape, because there is no one among humans who deserves to be called Master, except the sacred Avatar Mitra Deva.

The denomination of Master is a privilege won by those who, from subtle plans, influence, help and serve humanity in its eternal progress towards the Sacred Order.
