Three Discipleship Training Components
The daily practice of creative meditation, as assigned by the School, is structured around seed thoughts and is part of the Raja Yoga tradition. Some students need to learn concentration as the first step, for a certain degree of mind control must be present before Soul contact can be made via the mind.
Students are expected to read assigned material and prepare written papers to help them integrate and synthesize that material. One of the services provided by the School’s training is the organization of available esoteric literature into specific topics so that the material is not quite as daunting as it might be reading a single text cover-to-cover. Another service provided by the School is the sequencing of training material so as to guide the student step-by-step in spiritual growth, with review of previous content built in periodically.
As part of the initial lesson assignments, students are asked to engage in spiritual experiments to gain practice in the application of spiritual concepts and laws in daily life. Students are also guided in recognizing the service work going on around them in their communities, their nations, and the world at large. As they progress in their studies, students are encouraged to become actively engaged in service work themselves.
