The Master about the Pentagram
The Pentagram: on top – clear blue – Truth, to the left – clear red – Love, to the right – light yellow – Wisdom, at the bottom right – clear green – Justice, at the bottom left – Virtue – the color of golden ripe wheat. Pink is the color of love. The colors of the Pentagram correspond to the head, hands and feet. The clear blue is for the spiritual man. Clear red – for the heart and lungs. Clear yellow – for the mind. Clear green – the gallbladder and liver.
There’s no illness, which can’t be healed in front of this picture. This is the original. This image must always be in your minds.
Man is a representation of the Pentagram. When you look at man, you can see the five virtues in him: the line connecting his left foot and his head is Truth; the one connecting the head and the right foot – Justice; the one from the right foot to the left hand – Love; the line from the left hand to the right – wisdom; the one from the right hand to the left foot – Virtue.
The Pentagram is based on certain occult laws. Probably one of them is the correspondence between the vibrations of hue, color, number, measure etc., also known as the “golden section”, referred to by the occultists as “Divine”. The work with the
Pentagram can generally be called the “way of the disciple”, who – through trials and initiation - completes his evolution cycle, i.e. passes from the outer to the innermost circle.
The outer circle is the world, the Earthly school, the way of the worldly man.
The formula “ The power of human soul lies in the fulfillment of God’s will”, written as a circle, in the occult science means the Divine conditions, in which man can develop.
The Sword symbolizes the material wealth, the brute material force.
The cup represents the karmic law, one will go through all the sufferings he has caused to others; at the same time suffering prepares the new man, the man of Love.
The book reveals to man why does he have to suffer, teaches him the laws of life.
The enlightener is the human mind, it illuminates the book of life; man himself is the enlightener.The wand means the law of Justice.
When the light of the enlightener increases, one acquires power and influence over the others, but not the power of the sword. With the sward he had lived to take, and with light he lives to give. Then he achieves the wand – power over himself, capability of making use of certain natural forces and laws.
The letters V, U, J (Cyrillic - В, У, Ж) are the letters of Christ; the three letters mean the Great School of Life (Bulgarian: Великото Училище на Живота).
The middle circle is the teaching, it’s the start of the way of the disciple, who consciously produces in himself the Divine virtues.
The Disciple passes through the “narrow door”, to meet Christ. Then he establishes connection with the five peaks – Ararat, Moriah, Sinai, Tabor and Golgotha – the five initiations of the disciple, the five steps of human evolution, which mankind made for thousands, millions of years.
The wide door leads to the Truth, meeting the Master – to Justice, the narrow door – to Christ, the eye – to Wisdom.
The tree of life symbolizes the virtue, which, in the wide sense of the word, incorporates all the virtues, and in the narrow sense – serving God.
The central (innermost) circle is the holy of holies, it’s the place where there are angels, adepts, great consecrated ones, the Divine Center. From the snakes, from hell, through the circle, towards the cross, the disciple passes through severe trials, reaches complete self-denial to become one with God. Then he acquires immortality.
There are two images of the Pentagram. The black-and-white Pentagram is depicted on a 62/51 cm sheet of paper, with diameter of the outer circle of the formula - 43 cm. The color Pentagram has additional elements. There are two known originals. In Veliko Tarnovo, in 1922 a large color Pentagram was brought to the School in a special flat box. The small color Pentagram, with dimensions 180/138 cm was signed by F. Shliater in 1922. In a lecture on June 28, 1923 the Master mentioned that in 1895 (the last year of his stay in America) a healer named Shliater, shoe-maker by trade, appeared there, and he healed 15 000 people a day, starting at 4 a.m. and using only the touch of his hands. He then disappeared after several months. Later the Master said that Shliater headed towards the East Coast, where he went through severe hardships in life. What’s the connection between the Master and Shliater and why and where was that picture painted in 1922 remains a mystery.
In 1925 during a surprise rummage by the police, the large color Pentagram was confiscated. Later Lyubomir Lulchev managed to bring the Pentagram back, but the Master then held it rolled and never took it out.
The Pentagram is used in Paneurhythmy, as the Master provides the motions, melody and text.
