Specialized and Mental Bodies


     One question was a request for explanation of the terms “final glorified physical vehicle” and “mental body.” Richard said that when an Adept of the Eleventh Degree chooses to work with one of the Seven Lesser Brotherhoods, he incarnates for the last time for the purpose of developing a perfect physical vehicle for his use should

in the course of his work need to deal people on the physical plane. When not in use, this vehicle is usually maintained in a well-protected place and sustained mentally by the Ego.

     The mental body is an identification shell not fully developed until an Ego becomes a Master functioning on the mental plane. Even Masters feel the need for a defined and recognizable form.
