THE AVALANCHE

Only through devotion to FRATER PERDURABO
may this book be understood.
How much more then should He devote Himself to
AIWASS for the understanding of the Holy Books
of {Theta-Epsilon-Lambda-Eta-Mu-Alpha}?
Yet must he labour underground eternally. The
sun is not for him, nor the flowers, nor the voices
of the birds; for he is past beyond all these. Yea,
verily, oft-times he is weary; it is well that the
weight of the Karma of the Infinite is with him.
Therefore is he glad indeed; for he hath finished THE
WORK; and the reward concerneth him no whit.


COMMENTARY ({Pi-Delta})


This continues the subject of Chapter 83.
The title refers to the mental attitude of the Master;
the avalanche does not fall because it is tired of staying
on the mountain, or in order to crush the Alps below it,
or because that it feels that it needs exercise. Perfectly
unconscious, perfectly indifferent, it obeys the laws of
Cohesion and of Gravitation.
It is the sun and its own weight that loosen it.
So, also, is the act of the Adept. "Delivered from the
lust of result, he is every way perfect."
Paragraphs 1 and 2. By "devotion to Frater Per-
durabo" is not meant sycophancy, but intelligent
reference and imaginative sympathy. Put your mind
in tune with his; identify yourself with him as he
seeks to identify himself with the Intelligence that
communicates to him the Holy Books.
Paragraphs 3 and 4 are explained by the 13th
Aethyr and the title.
