Seventh Initiation – The Bodhisattva, Avatar or Christhood
"The seventh initiation is known as the initiation of the Bodhisattva (Buddhism) or the Avatar (Hinduism)."
The Maitreya or World Teacher (known as Krishna by Hindus, the Christ by Christians, Maitreya by Buddhists, Messiah by the Jews, the Iman Mahdi by Muslims, and the Peshotan by the Zoroastrians) is at this level. At this level also are said to be the Chakshusha Manu, the Vaivasvatu Manu and the Maha Chohan, thus making a total of four beings at this level.
In the Ascended Master Teachings, the Chakshusha Manu is referred to as Lord Himalaya.
It is said that a being at this level has the ability to teleport to anyplace in the solar system. however, that unless one is in a hurry, it's simpler, easier, and uses less energy to just take a flying saucer. Also stated that beings at this level have a level of invulnerability such that they would not be affected by a bullet fired at them, nor even by the detonation of a nuclear bomb. In the Ascended Master Teachings, it is believed that on January 1, 1956, Maitreya advanced from the 7th level to the 8th level. According to a "new" Theosophy copyrighted by Eric L Lundgaard who is a fourth level initiate himself, Maitreya took His eighth level of initiation. This was likely given by Sanat Kumara at Wesak, 2010.
