TG Jagrata (Sk.). The waking state of consciousness. When mentioned in Yoga philosophy, Jagrata-avastha is the waking condition, one of the four states of Pranava in ascetic practices, as used by the Yogis.

FY Jagrata, waking.

WG Jagrata, waking existence, one of the three states of consciousness known to ordinary man. (See Avastha-traya.)

OG Jagrat -- (Sanskrit) The state of consciousness when awake, as opposed to svapna, the dreaming-sleeping state of consciousness, and different again from sushupti when the human consciousness is plunged into profound self-oblivion. The highest of all the states into which the consciousness may cast itself, or be cast, is the turiya ("fourth"), which is the highest state of samadhi, and is almost a nirvanic condition.

All these states or conditions of the consciousness are affections or phases of the constitution of man, and of beings constructed similarly to man. The waking state, or jagrat, is the state or condition of consciousness normal to the imbodied human being when not asleep. Svapna is the state of consciousness more or less freed from the sheath of the body and partially awake in the astral realms, higher or lower as the case may be. Sushupti is the state of self-oblivion into which the human being is plunged when the percipient consciousness enters into the purely manasic condition, which is self-oblivion for the relatively impotent brain-mind; whereas the turiya state, which is a practical annihilation of the ordinary human consciousness, is an attainment of union with atma-buddhi overshadowing or working through the higher manas. Actually, therefore, it is becoming at one with the monadic essence.

FY Jagrata Avastha, the waking state; one of the four aspects of Pranava.

TG Jehovah (Heb.). The Jewish "Deity name J'hovah, is a compound of two words, viz of Jah (y, i, or j, Yodh, the tenth letter of the alphabet) and hovah (Havah, or Eve)," says a Kabalistic authority, Mr. J. Ralston Skinner of Cincinnati, U.S.A. And again, "The word Jehovah, or Jah-Eve, has the primary meaning of existence or being as male female". It means Kabalistically the latter, indeed, and nothing more; and as repeatedly shown is entirely phallic. Thus, verse 26 in the IVth chapter of Genesis, reads in its disfigured translation . . . . "then began men to call upon the name of the Lord", whereas it ought to read correctly . . . . "then began men to call themselves by the name of Jah-hova" or males and females, which they had become after the separation of sexes. In fact the latter is described in the same chapter, when Cain (the male or Jah) "rose up against Abel, his (sister not) brother and slew him" (spilt his blood, in the original). Chapter IV of Genesis contains in truth, the allegorical narrative of that period of anthropological and physiological evolution which is described in the Secret Doctrine when treating of the third Root race of mankind. It is followed by Chapter V as a blind; but ought to be succeeded by Chapter VI, where the Sons of God took as their wives the daughters of men or of the giants. For this is an allegory hinting at the mystery of the Divine Egos incarnating in mankind, after which the hitherto senseless races "became mighty men, . . . . men of renown" (v. 4), having acquired minds (Manas) which they had not before.

WGa Jehovah, literally Male-Female. The god of procreation, or sex-god. The tribal-god of the Jews -- now worshipped by Christians as the "Most High".

TG Jerusalem, Jerosalem (Septuag.) and Hierosolyma (Vulgate). In Hebrew it is written Yrshlim or "city of peace", but the ancient Greeks called it pertinently Hierosalem or "Secret Salem", since Jerusalem is a rebirth from Salem of which Melchizedek·was the King-Hierophant, a declared Astrolator and worshipper of the Sun, "the Most High" by-the-bye. There also Adoni-Zedek reigned in his turn, and was the last of its Amorite Sovereigns. He allied himself with four others, and these five kings went to conquer back Gideon, but (according to Joshua X) came out of the affray second best. And no wonder, since these five kings were opposed, not only by Joshua but by the "Lord God", and by the Sun and the Moon also. On that day, we read, at the command of the successor of Moses, "the sun stood still and the moon stayed" (v. 13) for the whole day. No mortal man, king or yeoman, could withstand, of course, such a shower "of great stones from heaven" as was cast upon them by the Lord himself . . . . "from Beth-horon unto Azekah" . . . . "and they died" (v. 11). After having died they "fled and hid themselves in a cave at Makkedah" (v. 16). It appears, however, that such undignified behaviour in a God received its Karmic punishment afterwards. At different epochs of history, the Temple of the Jewish Lord was sacked, ruined and burnt (See "Mount Moriah") -- holy arc; of the covenant, cherubs, Shekinah and all, but that deity seemed as powerless to protect his property from desecration as though they were no more stones left in heaven. After Pompey had taken the Second Temple in 63, B.C., and the third one, built by Herod the Great, had been razed to the ground by the Romans, in 70 A.D., no new temple was allowed to be built in the capital of the "chosen people" of the Lord. In spite of the Crusades, since the XIIIth century Jerusalem has belonged to the Mahommedans, and almost every site holy and dear to the memory of the old Israelites, and also of the Christians, is now covered by minarets and mosques, Turkish barracks and other monuments of Islam.

For additional reading on this topic, hyperlink to The Story of Jesus by G. de Purucker, and the Christianity Topics articles.

WW Jesus You all know the story, of course, as set forth in the Christian gospels: of a certain man who is supposed to have been born in Syria, in Palestine, in the town of Bethlehem, from a virgin betrothed or married to a man called Joseph, and of his life works, and of the fact that he is the accepted Messiah of the Christians and a rejected postulant, as supposed by the Christians, to the Messiahship of the Jews. Now, in the first place, there are few things either in history or legend that are so much involved in obscurity and uncertainty as the story of Jesus, afterwards called the Christ. The Gospels themselves differ in their accounts of him very seriously, and the Christians who accepted his mission and his gospel differed very greatly among themselves as to the way they accepted life so that uniformity as regards his birth, mission, and even death, cannot be found. But it would seem that at some time about 1900 or 1950 years ago (about 46 B.C.), there did live in Palestine a Jew, a sage, around whose life and mission has been built up the tremendous fabric which we call Christianity. [See Le Lotus, Vol. II, No. 13, April 1888, reprinted in Blavatsky Collected Writings, IX, 216 et seq. "For me Jesus Christ . . . was never a historical person. He is a deified personification of the glorified type of the great Hierophants of the Temples, and his story, as told in the New Testament, is an allegory . . . The legend of which I speak is founded on the existence of a personage called Jehoshua (from which Jesus has been made) born at Lud or Lydda about 120 years before the modern era." -- PLP EDS.]

There are two ways in which to look at it. One is as Jesus the man; the other, as Jesus the type-figure of a religion or of a mythology. And this latter is Jesus the Christ. When we come to the further definitions in our study to the Mysteries and Initiations, we shall be able better to understand what now we can merely speak of as a skeleton theory: that is to say, that the life of Jesus, his mission, is based on a typical figure, a type, an exemplar of what was prefigured in the Mysteries, no matter in what country these Mysteries were held. The Mysteries, though varying in form, were one in the fundamental subjects taught.

Now I spoke of Jesus in connection with the sun. Obviously that did not mean that Jesus was the sun, nor that Jesus Christ, the type-figure, was the sun, but it meant that both the man and the type figure had a mystical relationship to the sun, as conceived in ancient days, and as taught in the Mysteries, the sun being in one sense the Logos or Word of the Father. Hence he was the type-figure of the perfect man, and in another sense the manifested demiurge, that is to say the cosmic artificer, acting on this plane.

Last week we spoke about the Christians having a conception of the type-figure, Jesus the Christ as the Sun of Righteousness, "which riseth with healing in its wings" (a passage taken from the Jewish Prophet Malachi, IV, 2, and frequently applied to Jesus by Christians), and apart from the invocation or hymn or prayer which you remember we quoted as used in the 6th or 7th centuries, and undoubtedly before that time by the Christians. It is interesting also to recollect that the early Christian Fathers, such as Origen in Contra Celsum, I, 51; Eusebius, Vita Const., III, 40, and Justin called the Martyr in Dialog. 78, speak of the birth of Jesus as having taken place in a cave in or near the village or town of Bethlehem in Judea. And in the 5th century, Jerome, the Latin Church Father, who passed a great many years of his life in Palestine as a monk, tells us in a letter (Epist. ad Paulin, VIII; see also Epist. ad Sabin) that the cave where Christ was born was dedicated to the worship and celebration of rites in honor of Adonis, Adonis being a Syrian God of the sun. Eusebius also tells us that the Emperor Hadrian built a temple to Apollo, that is to say, to Adonis, over this cave. Several of the Apocryphal gospels also mention the cave (see especially the Protevangclium of Tomes, 18, and the Gospel of the Pseudo Matthew, 13, History of Joseph the Carpenter, 7, and others.)

The connection of the Logos idea with the sun was noticed in our other studies, as you will remember; and the Christians did adopt a great many pagan ideas, and with them the philosophical consequences, thus establishing the connection of Jesus, the type figure, with the sun.

Now, in the first place, when was Jesus born? No one knows. He is supposed to have been born in what is commonly spoken of as the year 1 A.D., or 1914 years ago. [[Obviously the number of years changes as each year passes.]] Criticism of the Gospels has shown that it ought to be at least four years before that, so then he would have been born (accepting this not as a truth but as something of a basis to work upon) 1918 years ago. [[Ibid.]] When he was really born, no one knows. Justin the Martyr tells us (first Apology, 46) that Jesus was born 150 years earlier. The trouble is that no one knows exactly when Justin himself lived. The time of his birth varies according to different computations from 89 of this Christian era to as late as 120; but taking the largest figure, even then Jesus was born more than 1918 years ago. [[Ibid.]]

To be the Messiah as accepted by the Christians, based upon the ideas of the Jews concerning their Messiah -- because you will remember that the Christians adopted a great many of the mystical ideas of the Jews in founding their faith -- Jesus must be of the seed of David; that is, belonging to the blood royal of the Kingdom of Judah; he must come to restore the Jewish nation, to purify the Jewish faith, and to carry the gospel of righteousness to surrounding peoples. If it could be proved that Jesus was not the seed of David, he was not the Messiah. Now in the Gospel according to Matthew he gives the genealogy of Jesus from Abraham down to Christ, dividing it into three periods: to wit, from Abraham to David, 14 generations; from David until the carrying away into Babylon, 14 generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon until Christ, 14 generations. (Let me interpolate and remind you that these titles "The Gospel according to Matthew", or Mark, or Luke, or John, do not mean that they were written by these individuals. No one knows who wrote the Gospels. Pious believers suppose and hope that they were written by these men, but there is no proof of it, and the contradictions in the Gospels themselves show that if they were written by eye-witnesses either the eye-witnesses were lunatics when they wrote them or they were not eye-witnesses). Thrice fourteen is obviously a mystical number and shows an endeavor to conform facts to a theory. Second, there are not 14 generations (as may be found by counting them) from the carrying away to Babylon to Christ, but only 13 generations. Again, the genealogy ends "and Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called the Christ." The genealogy given here shows Joseph to be the seed of David, not Mary, Christ's mother, the virgin. Therefore he cannot be the Messiah by the genealogy of Matthew.

Mark gives no genealogy. Luke, in the third chapter, Verses 23 to the end, verse 38, gives a genealogy from Joseph on up through a larger number than in Matthew, ending "which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God," tracing it back to God. This genealogy also makes Jeseph Joseph? of the seed of David, not Mary the virgin, the mother of Christ. Therefore by Luke he cannot be the seed of David, because Joseph was of the seed of David, but not Mary, the virgin, his mother.

Thus far Matthew and Luke agree; but when we examine these genealogies we find that the father of Joseph in Matthew was Jacob; the father of Joseph in Luke was Heli; the Father of Jacob in Matthew was Matthan; the father of Heli in Luke was Matthat; the father of Matthan in Matthew was Eleazar; the father of Matthat in Luke was Levi; the father of Eleazar in Matthew was Eliud; and the father of Levi in Luke was Melchi; and so on, the genealogies being different. Now the very early Christians, such as Justin the Martyr, who lived as I have said at some indefinite periods between the year 89 of our era and the year 165, traced the genealogy of Jesus through Mary and not through Joseph; they know nothing of the genealogy of Jesus as being the son of Joseph.

Furthermore, there were other early Christians, some of them called heretics, who said that Joseph was indeed the father of Jesus, and it was but mystically that Jesus was said to be born of a virgin. The 23rd verse in the 3rd chapter of Luke is as follows; "And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli." And then the genealogy continues. Now, that "as was supposed" is ambiguous, in Greek as in English. It could mean: as was supposed, such being the fact; or it could mean: as was wrongly supposed, such not being the fact. These three words are probably a "harmonistic" interpolation, to destroy the stated fathership of Joseph.

Now as regards the personality of Jesus the man, nothing is known. It is popular to think of him as a man of noble and prepossessing appearance, high-minded, gentle, infilled with the spirit of the Deity, incapable of sin, the incarnation of love and pity -- a man of majestic personal presence, etc. Origen, the Christian father, in his answer to the philosopher Celsus wrote a work called The True Word showing the contradictions and impossibilities in the Christian scheme, which unfortunately has not come down to us except in small extracts. In one of his arguments (Contra. Cels. vi) he says that even if Celsus does say, "quoting certain of our sacred works" (that is, accepted by the Christians) that Jesus was insignificant, vulgar in appearance, unprepossessing in form, it still matters not, because although it is true that certain writers say that, nevertheless the 45th Psalm speaks of his beauty -- by prophecy. Saint Paul, by the way, the most philosophical writer found among the books called the Christian New Testament, is also described by some ancient and present discredited writings which have come down to us from the Christian era, as being a bandy-legged fellow, bald, with a hooked nose. And some able men today believe that when Saint Paul speaks of the thorn in his flesh against which he had constantly to wrestle, it was because he was an epileptic. These, of course, are merely stories and traditions, as worthy or as little worthy of credence as the Gospels, so-called, themselves. One may say that if any historical fact were founded upon such information as the story of Jesus contained in these Gospels, it would be thrown out by any historian jealous of his reputation, particularly as these Gospel tales not only differ among themselves, differ seriously, but contradict each other, and there are some grotesque errors, as for instance they speak of the High Priests of the Jews. The Jews of course had but one High Priest. Coming from Jews, supposedly, who lived and assisted Jesus in his work, this is rather ridiculous.

TG Jetzirah, Sepher; or Book of the Creation. The most occult of all the Kabalistic works now in the possession of modern mystics. Its alleged origin, of having been written by Abraham, is of course nonsense; but its intrinsic value is great. It is composed of six Perakim (chapters), subdivided into thirty-three short Mishnas or Sections; and treats of the evolution of the Universe on a system of correspondences and numbers. Deity is said therein to have formed ("created") the Universe by means of numbers "by thirty-two paths (or ways) of secret wisdom ", these ways being made to correspond with the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet and the ten fundamental numbers. These ten are the primordial numbers whence proceeded the whole Universe, and these are followed by the twenty-two letters divided into Three Mothers, the seven double consonants and the twelve simple consonants. He who would well understand the system is advised to read the excellent little treatise upon Sepher Jetzirah, by Dr. W. Wynn Westcott. (See "Yetzirah".)

TG Jiva (Sk.). Life, as the Absolute; the Monad also or "Atma-Buddhi".

FY Jiva or Karana Sarira, the second principle of man; life.

WG Jiva, living; the principle of life; the vital principle in the material body; monad; individual soul; the name adopted in Esoteric Buddhism for one of the seven human principles. There are, it is taught, three classes of jivas, or souls: first, nityas, those who permanently enjoy supreme bliss, and are never subject to matter or karma; second, muktas, those who have attained supreme bliss, and are freed from all miseries and from the necessity for reincarnation; third, baddhas, who are subject to all karma and to the miseries arising from connection with matter.

OG Jiva -- (Sanskrit) This is a word meaning essentially a living being per se, apart from any attributes or qualities that such living being may have or possess. It therefore is the exactly proper equivalent of the theosophical term monad. In one sense, therefore, jiva could be also used for a life-atom, provided that the emphasis be laid on the word life, or rather life-entity -- not an "atom of life," but a being whose essence is pure living individuality. Monad in its divine-spiritual essence, and life-atom in its pranic-astral-physical being -- such is a jiva; and between these two extremes are the numerous planes or sheaths on and in which the individualized consciousness works.

SKo Jiva A living being per se; a monad; a life-atom; derived from the verbal root jiv -- to live. These Jivas or monadic life-centers range from the simple consciousnesses of the elemental worlds to the complex living beings that imbody universes. Jiva is also a term used for the Prana or life-principle of the Universe.

TG Jivanmukta (Sk.). An adept or yogi who has reached the ultimate state of holiness, and separated himself from matter; a Mahatma, or Nirvanee, a "dweller in bliss" and emancipation. Virtually one who has reached Nirvana during life.

WG Jivan-mukta, one who has during life attained freedom from conditioned existence; a soul in conscious union with the Supreme Spirit.

WG Jivan-mukti, emancipation, redemption. (See Jivan-mukta.)

OG Jivanmukta -- (Sanskrit) A highly mystical and philosophical word which means "a freed jiva," signifying a human being, or an entity equivalent in evolutionary development to a human being, who has attained freedom or release as an individualized monad from the enthralling chains and attractions of the material spheres.

A jivanmukta is not necessarily without body; and, as a matter of fact, the term is very frequently employed to signify the loftiest class of initiates or Adepts who through evolution have risen above the binding attractions or magnetism of the material spheres. The term is frequently used for a mahatma, whether imbodied or disimbodied, and also occasionally as a descriptive term for a nirvani -- one who has reached nirvana during life. Were the nirvani "without body," the mystical and technical meaning of jivanmukta would hardly apply. Consequently, jivanmukta may briefly be said to be a human being who lives in the highest portions of his constitution in full consciousness and power even during earth-life.

SP Jivanmukta -- literally "released while living," one who attains mukti (liberation) in the present life.

WG Jivatma, the human spirit; the intellectual life of the ego; the Logos; living soul; sometimes applied to the monad which passes through all incarnations. (jiva, life; atma, soul.)

OG Jivatman -- (Sanskrit) An expressive word having much the same significance as jiva, but with emphasis laid upon the last element of the compound, atman, "self." Jivatman is perhaps a better term for monad even than jiva is, because it carries the clear idea of the monad in which the individual self is predominant over all other monadic attributes. One may perhaps describe it by a paraphrase as "the essential self or individuality of the monad."

Jivatman is also a term sometimes used for the universal life; but this definition, while correct in a way, is rather confusing because suggesting similarity if not identity with paramatman. Paramatman is the Brahman or universal spirit of a solar system, for instance; and paramatman is therefore the converging point of a kosmic consciousness in which all the hosts of jivatmans unite as in their hierarchical head. The jivatmans of any hierarchy are like the rays from the paramatman, their divine-spiritual sun. The jivatman, therefore, in the case of the human being, or indeed of any other evolving entity, is the spiritual monad, or better perhaps the spiritual ego of that monad.

KT Josephus Flavius. A historian of the first century; a Hellenized Jew who lived in Alexandria and died at Rome. He was credited by Eusebius with having written the 16 famous lines relating to Christ, which were most probably interpolated by Eusebius himself, the greatest forger among the Church Fathers. This passage, in which Josephus, who was an ardent Jew and died in Judaism, is nevertheless made to acknowledge the Messiaship and divine origin of Jesus, is now declared spurious both by most of the Christian Bishops (Lardner among others) and even by Paley (see his Evidence of Christianity). It was for centuries one of the weightiest proofs of the real existence of Jesus, the Christ.
