Synopsis of the Book
Written in the year 1967, this Christmas Message is a complete book in which Samael Aun Weor expands on the fundamental subjects of the Gnostic Teaching which he began to deal with in previous years.
As its title implies, in the thirty-seven chapters of this book Samael Aun Weor gathers the entire doctrine for the manufacturing or creation of the Higher Existential Bodies of the Being or Solar Bodies.
By acquiring these bodies, the Initiate gets rid of the fatal lunar heredity (the lunar or natural bodies), to which all human beings are subjugated, thus attaining the true immortality of the Soul, the Second Birth, and becoming a Real or Solar Man, an Adept of the Conscious Circle of Solar Humanity.
When an Initiate reaches this stage, he or she just accomplishes the First Mountain of Initiation. In the last chapters of this book the author introduces the Second Mountain: the Path of John, or Path of the Logos, which leads to the perfection of Mastership and Initiatory Resurrection.
In the words of Samael Aun Weor himself:
‘Whoever wants to incarnate his total Soul, his Divine Immortal Triad, Atman-Buddhi-Manas, must first descend to the Ninth Sphere (Sex) in order to create his solar electronic bodies…’
‘To incarnate the Divine Immortal Triad in fact means to achieve the Second Birth… Those who attain the Second Birth enter the Temple of the Twice Born…’
‘No one could enter the Kingdom wearing beggar’s clothes, lunar rags…’
(From chapter 33, The Second Birth)
