That makes sense. The same method, different name. And BTW this was 
spoken of by Charan and other masters as being THE MOST difficult of 
spiritual practices, to have that visualization of the master within. 
But it is still YOUR creation. It is still YOUR illusion. But at 
least it is the path that you have created, your oversoul, your inner 
gaze focussed on the focus. This is the sine quo non of those who are 
beholden to a cult. That they are unaware that this outer physical 
man/master is but the template on which to create their own inner 

This Dyhan was priceless it was said. They would say that even those 
who spend a great deal of time with the master do not and cannot do 
Dyhan. This was the holy grail among Satsangis: visualizing the 
master within or having dreams of him.

My question then: does this difficultly arise because once this has 
been accomplished the disciple has become the master or is about to 
embark on the ladder and ascend the sounds as HPB describes in "The 
Voice of the Silence"? I like to think this is so.

When I had the first experience of the inner master externalizing and 
making me hear his voice it was the most thrilling experience of my 
life. But I had no physical master at the time. What or who was it I 
asked myself for years? The answer came back as it only could return: 
It is YOU, I AM. You are the object of your search.

Love that. Thanks
