What are you on about Anand, what you call the king of mystic works, is a principle!
These vestures are Nirmânakâya, Sambhoga-Kâya, and Dharmakâya, robe Sublime (21).
The Shangna robe(22), 'tis true, can purchase light eternal. The Shangna robe alone gives the Nirvâna of destruction; it stops rebirth, but O Lanoo, it also kills-compassion. No longer can the perfect Buddhas, who don the Dharmakâya glory, help man's salvation. Alas! shall SELVES be sacrificed to Self: mankind, unto the weal of Units?

Subject: Theos-World Re: Blavatsky's mistake about God
Blavatsky calls Jnaneshari king of mystic works. Have you read
Jnaneshari (also spelled as Dyaneshawri) ?
St. Jnaneshwar writes in it that it is sin to consider ourselves
separate from God. He wrote that God is the only one who exists, all
forms which we see with senses are maya or illusion.
If Blavatsky rejected existence of God, was she under mayavic
influences when she called Jnaneshwari king of mystic works ?
Before discussing subject of God, I will recommend all to study
carefully this king of mystic works Jnaneshwari.
As J. Krishnamurti completely spoilt concept Guru, it appears to me
that study of Jnaneshari will set things right.
