Life And Teaching Of The Masters Of The Far East – VOL 5




The following chapters are taken from lectures delivered by Mr. Spalding in Southern California during the last two years of his life.





From the shadow of the Himalayas to the great vastness of the Gobi Desert; from New York to Central and South America; from San Francisco to the Philippines, Alaska, and Canada, come these experiences, findings and revelations of our research work.

We have been carrying on this work for over forty years, first translating the records which we found in the Gobi, in Tibet, and in India, and this work has developed into an organization of about twenty-six men who are interested in a doing the work.

The scientists are beginning to give us a great deal of credit; in fact, two years ago they believed that, with our new camera and what we call taking pictures of past events, we are going to be able to go back at least one million years, showing the civilization that did exist at that time.

Now that may seem rather remarkable, that we can go back and take absolute pictures of what happened thousands and thousands of years ago. There is a great deal being done along that line. We have the distinction of starting it because of Dr. Steinmetz’ assistance. I worked with Dr.

Steinmetz myself and , during that whole time that I was with him, he put forth the expression, “We’ll build a camera that will go into the past and pick up every past event, if you wish it.” He went on and delineated. Not only that, he drew the plans for that camera and we followed through and today we can say definitely that we can go into the past and pick up every past event. Of course, that becomes too cumbersome, but we select past events and , as I said, the scientists are admitting today and fully believing that we will go into the past events to the extent of a million years.

Our initial experience with the first camera was motivated by Dr. Steinmetz. I worked with Dr. Steinmetz for about nine years, and he always maintained that we would eventually go back into past events and could get everything that happened, in fact, show what civilizations did, how they operated, and so on, and that has come to pass.

Our first experience was with George Washington’s inaugural address. That was in New York City at what is now known as Federal Hall. In that picture you can readily discern every one of the dignitaries who were on the platform with him and George Washington is walking back and forth before the group giving his inaugural address. At that time there wasn’t even a still picture taken of the address or that group. Paintings were made bet no actual photographs.  Now we have the actual picture, with George Washington’s voice on the sound track. Everyone said for a time that it was a fake because they claimed that we made it up in moving picture form. But it  can now be shown with a regular moving picture mechanism.

Then we went from that to the Sermon on the Mount. Now we know that Jesus, the man, was no different than we are. We have a complete history of that family’s life for over 20,000 years, and know that it was a well established family, that He was a man of great influence, a very definite character. He was a man six feet two and, standing in a crowd, you yourself would select Him and say, “There is a man who will accomplish,” and He did accomplish. History is bearing those things out today and we are going back to this drama and getting the absolute words.

We are very much interested in His whole life and we followed it through at great length. Not only that but we have known the man for a number of years and we know today that He never passed though death.

Now Jesus of Nazareth never claimed for himself any more than what the ordinary person was capable of doing. That we know for certain. Not only that, He told us that death was overcome.

The Sermon on the Mount as lived on and on as a spiritual masterpiece. People regard it as such today, more than ever before, and they are beginning to understand it and take it into their lives.

We can show you in photography today that no one brought anything except the little boy with the five loaves and fishes. This isn’t an allegory. If it were, we wouldn’t find the boy there in that picture. Neither would we find the people there. All Jesus said was, “Sit down and prepare for the feast,” and there was an abundance for all.

Then again we have the instance where the disciple said to Jesus: “Master, there is need for bread, yet it is four months to the harvest.” His answer was: “Look upon the fields, they are already white to harvest,” and they are, right in the picture.

With those pictures we have been able to correct many mistakes that have been made. We worked for eight years on the picture, the Sermon on the Mount, before we got the identity of the man, Jesus. We were always looking for man of the description that daVinci had painted.

We had an interesting experience in this connection. Three of us were in the Vatican and we were talking with a very elderly cardinal who asked us how we were getting along with the picture “The Sermon on the Mount.” He was quite interested in what we were doing and told us that we would get a lot of information if we would take his card and go to the Louvre in Paris and ask for a certain man and ask to see daVinci’s letters. This was a new lead for us and we were on our way to Paris immediately. We went directly to the Louvre upon arrival, where every courtesy was shown us. Leonardo daVinci’s letters are all there today and this can be proved.

We have always felt that daVinci’s painting was a portrayal of Jesus as he saw Him. It has been proved today, and we have daVinci’s letters proving this, that he saw the Christ in the face of the model he chose to sit for the portrait. He said the man was young, engaged to be married, and there was a beautiful light in his eyes. DaVinci interpreted it as the Christ and painted the portrait as such. This was during the renaissance period when long hair and the beard were the custom. We have never known Jesus to wear long hair and a beard, and in the robes. Maybe other people have but there it is written out in daVinci’s own hand.

Two years later the artist decided to paint a picture of Judas, the betrayer. He searched for nearly two years, looking for one he felt was despicable enough to portray the betrayer. Finally, one morning he was walking through the apache quarter in Paris and here, in a little niche, all disheveled and in rags and down and out, was the man! He walked up to him and said: “I have painted the portrait of the Christ, now I am looking for a man who will pose for me for the portrait of Judas, the betrayer.” The man looked up and said: “Sir, I posed for the Christ for you.”  It was exactly the same man!  DaVinci goes right on to describe in his letters how, had that man never betrayed the Christ, he never would have found him in the niche in the apache quarter in Paris. He even goes so far as to say that when we use the word “can’t” we deny the Christ within.

Today we can prove that every negative word that you use, you betray the Christ within yourself. Now daVinci went right on to say that he never thought of portraying the countenance of Jesus, the Christ, but he did see the Christ in that face.

Leonardo daVinci was a most remarkable man. He wrote many scientific articles that are very fine, yet they have never been published.  You can only read them by going into a glass cage with three men watching you while you read them. They are very valuable. He was a very exceptional man and he spoke of the Christ within all the time. He explains how wonderful it is to represent the Christ, to see the Christ in every face. When he was painting the Vatican and the cardinals found him asleep on the scaffold and they called his attention to it, he said, “While I am asleep I am doing more work than while I am awake.” While sleeping he saw everything right before him that he would paint and in the exact colors he would bring out, and he would get up and put them down. He said, “Everything that I see is an exact resemblance and the vibrations of that which I put on the walls are the vibrations that I pick up, and I can manifest those and bring them forth with perfect ease after I see them in my sleep.”


Q. How do you select the events of the past?

A. They are all in a certain band of frequency. Everything that you say, your voice and words, goes right into a band of vibratory frequency and it goes on and on.

Q. What is the best path to pursue to obtain Illumination?

A. The path is right within. Search ever deeper within yourself. Know that this great Light belongs to you. That is all that is necessary.

Q. Were you born in India?

A. Yes, I was born in India and my father was born there too. I attended preparatory school and later Calcutta University. Dr. Vose and his wife at that time had been there for 68 years.

Q. Did Jesus and the disciples and other Bible characters really live in the flesh as we know it?

A. Oh, yes. We have a number of their lives through the camera of past events.

Q. What did Jesus look like when you saw him?

A. He is a man six feet two. If He were in this group tonight you would recognize Him for what He is, a man of the greatest attainment, just as He looked upon everybody, with the power to attain everything, and He did, and He always has. He is living today just the same as He always did. We photographed Him exactly the same as we might photograph you. We have pictures of Him walking arm-in-arm with Luther Burbank, with Dr. Norwood, and a number of others.

Q, Are all of these great problems that afflict the minds of men completely overcome when we live the life of the Masters?

A. Yes. Jesus’ firm statement was that the Truth makes you free.

Q. How does man get rid of the idea of man not being God?

A. By refusing to accept the negative statement. The statement: “I Am God, “ frees you from the negative statement that you are not God. It is better to state the Truth than the untruth.

Q. If you make the statement, “I Am God,” and are unable to accept your unity, is it not a matter of blind faith?

A. If you make it wholly on blind faith you have made a separation and will fall short of the goal. It is far better to say, “I can,” and then go right on to “I Am.” If you accept the “I can’t” attitude you have accepted a separation from God.

Q. If man is God and God is Spirit, where did the material body originate?

A. As a hypnotic influence in the mind of man. It has no basis in fact. Man brought the material into existence. The mortal body is an hypnotic body and when man wakes from that state it will be to him as a nightmare. He wakes to dream no more.
