To give a greater understanding of events at Sais, that ancient Egyptian city in the Nile delta, The Secret Doctrine by H P Blavatsky relates: "...And how little Herodotus could tell is confessed by himself when speaking of a mysterious tomb of an Initiate at Sais, in the sacred precinct of Minerva. There, he says 'behind the chapel is the tomb of One, whose name I consider it impious to divulge... In the enclosure there are large obelisks and there is a lake near, surrounded with a stone wall in a circle. In this lake they perform, by night, that person's adventures, which they call mysteries. It is well to know that no secret was so well-preserved and so sacred with the ancients as that of their cycles and computations. From the Egyptians down to the Jews it was held as the highest sin to divulge anything pertaining to the correct measure of time. It was for divulging the secrets of the Gods, that Tantalus was plunged into the infernal regions; the keepers of the sacred Sybilline Books were threatened with the death penalty for revealing a word of them.' The Secret Doctrine, Vol II, page 396. While not directly related to the Seven Veils of Sais, the following quotation from The Secret Doctrine, Vol. III, p.132, may afford further insight into what was hidden behind them. "An impenetrable veil of secrecy was thrown over the Occult and Religious Mysteries, after the submersion of the last remnant of the Atlantean Race, some 12,000 years ago, lest they should be shared by the unworthy, and so desecrated. Of these Sciences several have now become exoteric — such as astronomy, for instance, in its purely mathematical and physical aspect." Ed.

(Q) Please explain why the Master in many cases forgave sins in healing individuals.
(A) Sins are of commission and omission. Sins of commission were forgiven, while sins of omission were called to mind - even by the Master. Cayce (281-02)
"Know first that the knowledge of God is a growing thing, for ye grow in grace, in knowledge, in understanding AS ye apply that ye KNOW. But remember, as has been given by Him, to know to do good and do it not is sin." Cayce (281-30)
"In the application and study, then, of all influences that go to make up the developments, - as the entity may find, as indicated to the entity in that just stated, the unfoldment of the mind as may be paralleled by the history of the communication of spirit, or God, with individual entities from Abraham to Christ, may be seen in thine own children. For, this is the manner to make same practical, - that knowledge ye have gained in not only watching but aiding in the unfoldment of their minds. Do not put off questions asked too long to be answered. And have an answer when the question is asked." [Cayce 281-63]
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
'There is no 'sin' as we understand it. We are born to behave as we do. We have to find a way to overcome our human thoughts and feelings for they separate us from the protection of the 'Father' and bring us our sickness and misery. When we have learnt how to overcome the 'self' we will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.' [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 2, page 6]
'YOU are the SOURCE of all BEING, both creator and also manifested within and through the created: there is nothing in the entire universe which is apart or separate from the limitless, eternal infinity of DIVINE LIFE, Creative Power Consciousness - that you are - how then is it possible that mankind is so sinful - and why do people suffer disease, misery and poverty? Tell me, o loving loving 'Father' Creative Power, because I have been heavily burdened with the pain of their miserable lives.' [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 1, page 16]
"Therefore, you should be able to accept that there is no 'sin' against a 'God' and there is no 'sin' against others. The 'ego' can only have total control and do reprehensible things because the 'soul' is still asleep within the heavy cobweb bondage of the magnetic personality." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 8, page 22]
"The instant the expression/mind of God could look back at itself (aware of self) it assumed the erroneous thought it had erred in separating itself from the Oneness. Of course this was a mistaken belief and is not true but the thought was enough to "seat" itself in consciousness sufficient to become a made-up belief or illusion/mirage. The misbelief became a fixation (thought form) even though it was not true. Therefore the act of judging this to be so was the original sin that wasn't. And the only thing required to heal that misbelief is a letting go of the importance attached to it since it does not really exist anyway. This letting go is the foregiveness of our own thought or guilt trip we falsely hold as having been created when it fact nothing was created but an illusory belief it was so.
We didn't do anything wrong and no "sin" was committed.
There is therefore nothing to forgive as nothing really took place. We only think it did. The instant one lets go of that mis-belief healing happens because it is the thought (judgement) that prevents the realization of Oneness (harmony/health/Peace/Love)." [Dale Pond 03/2000 see Separation]

"Man must overcome the seven planets and transmute them into soul powers. Their negative forces are the seven deadly sins, which are overcome by a symbolic struggle with demons and dragons and, in turn, are transmuted into the seven cardinal virtues. This is the key to alchemy, for from the seven base metals, first spiritualized and then brought together as a secret compound, is produced the Philosopher's Stone, the purified soul." [Manly Palmer Hall]
