The barest necessity to have visual portraits and images of the Mahatmas is conditioned by one of the tasks in connection with externalization of the Spiritual Hierarchy. The very fact that Masters appear to their disciples and aspirants in their visions is one of the forms of "expanding" Spiritual energies throughout the world of men, or the Kingdom of God throughout the human Kingdom.
Images that transmit not only appearance of the Guides of our race but mainly their vibratory activity undoubtedly create an opportunity to align auric energies if the disciple is ready to it. We see here the required synchronization of the energy fields of He Who guides and he who is guided. Its goal is to accumulate the atoms of the Spiritual Triad in the subtle bodies, forming and development of the centers, and an expansion of the perceiving consciousness. Hence a concept of a New Icon as a Psy-resonator of that which is higher in man. It is necessary to point out an important question of an appearance, or a transform which the Masters take. They can take an appearance of the disciple’s natives, his friends or the well-known public characters. It depends solely on the choice of the Great Ones themselves who base their decision on the cosmic currents and the inner inclinations of those who are intended to be the Contacteurs, or the witnesses of the wonder of an appearance. That is why these images represent specific individual interpretations of the Higher Existence taking one or another transform. The seeking onlooker has to understand it. His openness, his reverent attitude and invocation produces an effect of his spiritual effort through visualization and possible response of a Master. The strength and craving of he who thus calls for the needed Magic Saving Hand will condition everything.
