Disciple on the Thread is a recording of Lucille Cedercrans (b. 1921, d. 1984). She had several stages of expression in her spiritual life, two of which are conveyed on this CD.
The first track is Lucille projecting a portion of The Disciple and Economy (pp. 48-54). During this tie period (1951-1964), she wrote The Nature of the Soul and Creative Thinking among others (see description below for how this was accomplished).
The second and third track springs from Lucille’s work teaching Nyingma Buddhism after operating a Center in Denver, Colorado (1975-1982). The second track is an instruction on the Guru Mantra. The third track is the group chanting the mantra.
The Disciple on the Thread – “A senior disciple is one who is functioning in direct contact with the Master, on his own level, as a monadic focus. He is referred to as a disciple on the thread…” (Ashramic Projections, p 103); and from Applied Wisdom: “It might be of interest as a side note to those for whom this instruction is specifically projected to know that The Nature of the Soul series is a specific instance of a disciple on the thread having created a body and a form for an incarnation of the new Synthesis Energy.”
The Guru Mantra – Om Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum (homage with body, speech, and mind to the saintly diamond-like lotus born guru – very loose translation). The Guru Mantra is attributed to Padmasambhava who is said to have converted Tibet to Buddhism. He was a renowned scholar, meditator, and magician. In Lucille’s short discourse, we get an idea of the depth and meaning of this short but succinct mantra.
