The First Lesson


In India, the Candidates for Initiation into the science of “Raja Yoga,” when they apply to the Yogi Masters for instruction,

are given a series of lessons designed to enlighten them regarding the nature of the Real Self and to instruct them in the secret knowledge whereby they may develop the consciousness and realization of the real “I” within them.

They are shown how they may cast aside the erroneous or imperfect knowledge regarding their real identity.

Until the Candidate masters this instruction, or at least until the truth becomes fixed in his consciousness, further instruction is denied him,

for it is held that until he has awakened to a conscious realization of his Actual Identity, he is not able to understand the source of his power,

and, moreover, is not able to feel within him the power of the Will, which power underlies the entire teachings of “Raja Yog”.

The Yogi Masters are not satisfied if the Candidate forms merely a clear intellectual conception of this Actual Identity,

but they insist that he must feel the truth of the same must become aware of the Real Self-must enter into a consciousness in which the realization becomes a part of his everyday self-in which the realizing consciousness becomes the prevailing idea in his mind, around which his entire thoughts and actions revolve.

2. The Ego’s Mental Tools

In the First Lesson, we gave instruction and exercises designed to awaken the consciousness of the Candidate to a realization of the real “L”

We confined our instructions to the preliminary teachings of the reality of the “T,” and the means whereby the Candidate might be brought to a realization of his real Self, and its independence from the body and the things of the flesh.

We tried to show you how you might awaken to a consciousness of the reality of “T”; its real nature; its independence of the body; its immortality; its invincibility and invulnerability.

How well we have succeeded may be determined only by the experience of each Candidate, for we can but point out the way, and the Candidate must do the real work himself.

But there is more to be said and done in this matter of awakening to a realization of the “I” So far, we have but told you how to distinguish between the material coverings of the Ego and the “I” itself.

We have tried to show you that you had a real “I,” and then to show you what it was, and how it was independent of the material coverings, etc.

But there is still another step in this self-analysis a more difficult step.

Even when the Candidate has awakened to a realization of his independence of the body and material coverings, he often confounds the “I” with the lower principles of the mind.

This is a mistake. We shall try to bring out this fact in this lesson and its accompanying exercises.

We shall avoid, and pass by, the metaphysical features of the case, and shall confine ourselves to the Yogi Psychology.

We shall not touch upon theories, nor attempt to explain the cause, nature, and purpose of the Mind— the working tool of the

Ego-but instead shall attempt to point out a way whereby you may analyze the Mind and then determine which is the “not I” and which is the real “I.”
