Traditionally, the path prescribed by Gautama Buddha for overcoming suffering. However, a deeper mystical understanding is that it represents the path of mastering the first seven spiritual rays and the eighth ray of integration.
The world of form is created through a hierarchy of beings that extend from the Creator. For example, planet earth was created by seven beings in the spiritual realm, called the Elohim. They envisioned the blueprint for the earth and projected it into the four levels of the material realm.
However, the blueprint is brought into physical manifestation by four classes of elemental beings. These are beings that have a lower self-awareness than humans, but who can grow by serving to help build the material world. The elementals in the four realms are named as follows:
- Etheric realm, fire elementals or salamanders
- Mental realm, air elementals or sylphs
- Emotional realm, water elementals or undines
- Physical realm, earth elementals or gnomes.
Ascended beings with such a high level of consciousness that they have complete mastery over the creation of matter. There is a masculine/feminine polarity of Elohim for each of the seven rays. The following list contains the names of the seven Elohim and their feminine counterparts:
- First ray: Hercules and Amazonia
- Second ray: Apollo and Lumina
- Third ray: Heros and Amora
- Fourth ray: Purity and Astrea
- Fifth ray: Cyclopea and Virginia
- Sixth ray: Peace and Aloha
- Seventh ray: Arcturus and Victoria

Evil, the veil of Maya
In Buddhist tradition, the veil of Maya is what obscures reality to beings in embodiment. This reality is that everything is the Buddha nature, in other words that all life is one. This veil is actually created because the matter universe is made from energy of a certain density, which makes it impossible for the physical senses to detect that even matter is made from spiritual light. Thus, this energy veil is abbreviated as evil.
