71 – Resurrection — Endless Path

Torkom wrote four volumes of books on the esoteric meaning of the Teachings of Christ, covering the subjects of birth, life, transformative power, and resurrection of Christ.

            I know many, many people who entered into the path, and they were so happy that they were becoming initiates and masters. Even many disciples, after ten, fifteen years, they came to me and said, “Torkom we became masters. We are great initiates. We are doing great works, teaching and writing, counseling, and we became great ones.” I asked, “Where is your focus of consciousness? One day, observe it and find out where is your consciousness.” Is your consciousness activated by fear, hatred, irritation, gossip, criticism, belittling other people, slander, and malice? If the answer is yes, you have them, you are not an initiate; you are a gopher. You are really creating great destruction and you are preparing your own destruction.

70 – Resurrection — Meditation


Torkom wrote four volumes of books on the esoteric meaning of the Teachings of Christ, covering the subjects of birth, life, transformative power, and resurrection of Christ.

....And the first step for resurrection is meditation.

            Meditation is mastery over your thought world. Through meditation you conquer. Through meditation you purify yourself. Through meditation you build a path between you and higher sources. Through meditation you purify your atmosphere, the field of your service, your room, your business. Even your offices you can purify with your thoughts because meditation eventually takes you from these six steps and puts you into the seventh step, which is pure, creative meditation. It is in that stage, only, that the human soul becomes himself. So resurrection is to become your True Self. Ask yourself and test yourself. Are you acting as yourself, your True Self, or are you acting as your body?

69 – Resurrection — Seven Traps


Torkom wrote four volumes of books on the esoteric meaning of the Teachings of Christ, covering the subjects of birth, life, transformative power, and resurrection of Christ.

There are seven traps that we must conquer in the mental plane. People are resurrected by conquering these seven steps. Here is a summary of these seven traps:

The first step is called the thoughtless state of consciousness. In this state of thoughtlessness, man obeys the thoughts of others and he is like a machine. The interests of other people, their habits, jealousies, and greed control people and they obey these people like sheep….

… the second step… is called the earthly thoughts stage. In this stage man thinks only about earthly interests….

68 – Resurrection — Victory Over Your Mind

Torkom wrote four volumes of books on the esoteric meaning of the Teachings of Christ, covering the subjects of birth, life, transformative power, and resurrection of Christ.

So resurrection is victory over the mind, over your thought mechanism, victory over your think, so that daily not a single thought pollutes your aura or channels an evil force to the world. It is easy to hold your mouth, it is easy to hold your hand, it is easy to control your body, but can you control your thinking? Can you keep that thinking pure, really pure? Resurrection means to achieve the primordial, the essential state of your consciousness, of your beingness. When we become pure selves, we achieve resurrection….

67 - Resurrection – Beneficent Thoughts

Torkom wrote four volumes of books on the esoteric meaning of the Teachings of Christ, covering the subjects of birth, life, transformative power, and resurrection of Christ.

The fifth level is thoughts enflamed by aspirations, by worship, by adoration, by beauty. Here, man starts to breathe and find himself, feel himself. For the first time in his life, he feels that he is a human being because his thoughts have wings. They start flying. He has great aspirations, great adoration, great worship, ecstasy, bliss….
            The sixth one is beneficent thoughts, thoughts that are only based on one thing: how can I help others? How can I make my life a service for humanity? Here your thoughts are totally fused with the … the service of the one humanity. How can I make my physical, emotional, and mental vehicles a service for humanity so that I uplift humanity?...

66 - Resurrection – Clean Up Your Thoughts

Then we come to the third step. The third stage of consciousness is called the stage of disintegrating thoughts. These thoughts are based on lies, on hypocrisy. They are not true….Human beings think that … space is polluted by fuel emissions, by smog, by radioactivity. Of course it is polluted, but the greatest pollution that we have now at the present is the disintegrating thoughtforms in … space.
            …Nothing can live in the world if it has no life principle, if it has no truth within itself. If you are lying, if you are basing your thoughts in hypocrisy, they are disintegrating in … space….

65 - Resurrection – Mental Traps

During the Month of April 2011, Torkom's blog articles (#62-71) will focus on the theme of Resurrection and Easter. We hope these articles inspire you to learn the deeper meanings of Easter and the process of Resurrection.


…The greatest trap is the mental body. It is sometimes easy to release yourself from the physical plane and conquer it. It is sometimes easy to conquer the emotional body, but the mental body is so sneaky. The thoughts are so subtle. You think you are catching them and then they slip away….
            There are seven traps that we must conquer in the mental plane. People are resurrected by conquering these seven steps.
            The first step is called the thoughtless state of consciousness. In this state of thoughtlessness, man obeys the thoughts of others and he is like a machine….Their mind is not in action yet, and the human soul, which is the one that is going to be resurrected, is chained in the mental plane.
If man conquers thoughtlessness and starts to think, to use his mind, he enters the second step, which is called the earthly thoughts stage. In this stage man thinks only about earthly interests. His body is very important. His urges and drives are very important,…. It is very difficult for these people to achieve resurrection.

64 – Resurrection: Meeting our True Self

Torkom wrote four volumes of books on the esoteric meaning of the Teachings of Christ, covering the subjects of birth, life, transformative power, and resurrection of Christ.

During the Month of April 2011, Torkom's blog articles (#62-71) will focus on the theme of Resurrection and Easter. We hope these articles inspire you to learn the deeper meanings of Easter and the process of Resurrection.

From The Teachings of Christ, Vol 4, by Torkom Saraydarian, p. 14.

Resurrection is when the spirit in the man starts to conquer his physical body, then the emotional body, then the mental body, and on and on and on. Eventually, with a very lucky break he meets himself.

….The resurrection ceremony or the resurrection initiation is nothing else but the process of meeting the Father. When we meet the Father we become ourselves, and when we meet ourselves we see the Father. Christ taught that concept when He said many, many times, “I and My Father are One.” He was referring to this divine principle, to this divine doctrine that if one meets that Divine Spark and becomes that Divine Spark, he is already in the Father and the Father is revealed to him. That was the ceremony for initiation.

63 - Ressurrection: The Easter Egg

Torkom wrote four volumes of books on the esoteric meaning of the Teachings of Christ, covering the subjects of birth, life, transformative power, and resurrection of Christ.

During the Month of April 2011, Torkom's blog articles (#62-71) will focus on the theme of Resurrection and Easter. We hope these articles inspire you to learn the deeper meanings of Easter and the process of Resurrection.

From The Teachings of Christ, Vol 4, by Torkom Saraydarian, pp.12-13.

There are many beautiful symbols in Easter that are very, very meaningful, especially the Easter egg. It is a very occult symbol. At Easter you collect eggs. The egg symbolizes the human being.

The human being is an egg. But that egg has a shell and a vital part inside. This vital part is protected. That is the beauty. That vital part is protected by the shell, but later, when that vital part starts to grow and unfold itself, the shell becomes a hindrance. The shell that was protecting the little life is now becoming a hindrance and that hindrance must be broken so that the life in the egg bursts out a little chicken….

62 - Resurrection: The Great Call

Torkom wrote four volumes of books on the esoteric meaning of the Teachings of Christ, covering the subjects of birth, life, transformative power, and resurrection of Christ.

During the Month of April 2011, Torkom's blog articles (#62-71) will focus on the theme of Resurrection and Easter. We hope these articles inspire you to learn the deeper meanings of Easter and the process of Resurrection.

From Teachings of Christ, Vol 4, by Torkom Saraydarian, pp. 11-12.

...Resurrection is the answer to a great call. And what is that great call? The Great Soul of this planet, Who was called the Father by Jesus and by many, many Masters, is calling back His sons. He is calling us back like a man standing on the mountain top and calling his lost son to come back. His Voice is tracing the path. Now this is the path which leads to resurrection. Hearing, listening to the Voice, being able to listen to that Voice and answering that Voice is the technique, is the process of resurrection. As you listen, as you hear that Voice, step by step you orient yourself. You find the right path to climb this mountain, this gap, these precipices. You discover how to penetrate these forests. You learn where to go so that you reach the summit and find your Father.
