I find your corrections somewhat confusing.

Since you own all A.Bailey's books you should know that the most consistent
and precise way of thinking of Shambhala, etc., is in terms of planetary
chakras according to the Hermetic principle of correspondences. It means
that one may find some correspondences to Shambhala, etc., in one's own
body (not necessarily physical body though), which makes the whole issue
much more sensible and down-to-earth. I just would like to mention it,
it's not my intention at this time to write about it in more detail.

Your way of referring to Master Morya as El Morya suggests that you
acknowledge the material channeled by Mark Prophet and Elisabeth Clair
Prophet (spelling may be in error). I do not.

More references:

A lot of material about the Brotherhood may be found in the following
Agni Yoga books:

	- Hierarchy

	- New Era Community (or just Community)

	- Brotherhood

	- Supermundane (subtitle: Book 1. The Inner Life of the Brotherhood)

Very valuable material including minute details of the life of the
Himalayan ashram of the Brotherhood, is found in Helen Roerich's book
entitled "On the Threshold of the New World" (in Russian; published in
Moscow by the International Roerichs' Center in 1994). An OCLC record

Unfortunately this material is not covered in the book on Shambhala I
referred to in my previous posting.
