It is advisable not to change The Great Invocation September 02, 2005 7:36 AM

It is advisable not to change the great invocation.

Because The Great Invocation was "say" to the huans by "the master" I mean if  "someone" who "it's in a hogher level" than us say one thing Who are we to "change" it? I mean we must say The Great Invocation "as is" we "musn't" "make" another versions. We must "use" "the original version":

THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men,
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Actually, DK wrote that it is advisable to change some of the wording of the GI if it would make it more understandable to people. When you think of it, each time it's translated (and how many languages is it in now?) it's changed to suit the syntax and the concepts of the people who speak that language.

The changes made by the Arcane School (it was Alice A. Bailey, the founder of the AS to whom the GI was given first) are, as you can see, more acceptable to people around the world. "Christ" has been changed to "the Coming One" and so on. Here's the adapted version.


From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into human minds.
Let Light descend on Earth.


From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts.
May the Coming One return to Earth.


From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide all little human wills -
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.


From the centre which we call the human race
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.


Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Namaste, ND
