How to do Transmission Meditation

As people make contact with that higher aspect of themselves ― the Soul ― they begin to feel the need to be of service to others. This inclination to serve brings them into contact with people and circumstances where this Soul purpose can be put to practical use.


Service is most potent when performed in group formation. As this relates to meditation, it is known that far greater energy can be handled by groups than by individuals meditating alone. Thus, Transmission Meditation offers a unique opportunity to serve humanity, working with others, right where you are.

Forming a group

Transmission groupThere are hundreds of Transmission groups around the world meeting on a regular basis. You may join an existing group in your local area or form your own group. You can start simply by inviting a few friends of like interest to meet with you regularly.

The group should choose a day and a time and stick to it. This enables the Masters to know that a group can be depended upon to be available at a set time, and allows the Transmission group’s energy to be easily integrated into the Masters’ greater work.

Some groups prefer to begin by playing a tape of one of the messages from Maitreya given through Benjamin Creme, which releases Maitreya's energies ― or by reading a message aloud. Other groups limit their activity to the actual Transmission.

How to conduct the Transmission

To link the group with the Masters of Wisdom, say The Great Invocation aloud together. The invocation is a non-denominational prayer used by millions throughout the world to 'call forth' the spiritual energies of Light, Love and Will.

No special expertise in meditation is required in order to transmit energy. All that is needed is alignment between the physical brain and the Soul, or Higher Self. This is achieved by focusing the attention on the ajna center, the energy center between the eyebrows, and simultaneously sounding the mantram (word/s that evoke energy) 'OM' silently, mentally. As the attention wanders, gently sound the OM again and re-focus on that center. Do not meditate on the OM ― just use it to bring your attention back. All we are asked to do is maintain this alignment; the Masters do the work of transmitting the energies. Simplicity is the keynote.

In the beginning you may wish to establish a specific length of time for the Transmission, e.g. one hour. But once the group is established, it is recommended that the transmission continue until the energy flow ceases. Participants should feel free to leave whenever they wish, trying not to disturb those who are staying on. Meeting on the physical plane adds an 'X' factor of potency to the work which is greater than can be achieved by individuals linking up mentally.

What happens during Transmission?

The Masters direct energies from the spiritual planes through the energy centers (chakras) of the group members ― down to the mental levels where they become more accessible to humanity. The group literally serves as a 'point of entry' for the energies to reach humanity and stimulate human progress. These energies are conditioned by the focused minds of the Masters who are sending them, and who know where they are most needed, and in what precise balance and potency to bring about the desired effects. The group should not attempt to direct the energies to any person, group or country they think could benefit. It is enough that we act as positive, poised mental channels, through which the energies can be sent in a highly scientific manner.

Unlike other forms of meditation, Transmission is totally under the control of the Masters. They are experts and will not send through your centers more energy than you can safely take. However, it is recommended that children under the age of 12 not take part in a Transmission group, as their energy centers are not yet sufficiently developed and could be harmed. In addition, people with a history of heart problems or mental/emotional illness may find these energies are too stimulating.


Where participation in a group is not possible, forming a meditation triangle with two other people enables one to still engage in the service of energy transmission, although not at the same level of potency. A triangle is a group of three people who link up each day in thought for a few minutes of creative meditation. They need not live in the same locality, and it is not necessary to synchronize the time at which the work is done; for once the triangle links are built in mental substance, they can be brought alive when any one member does the work.

Triangles work is easy. Mentally link up with the other two members, visualize a triangle of white light circulating above your heads, then say The Great Invocation inwardly (mentally). See your triangle linked with all other triangles, Transmission and meditation groups on the planet. See the white light circulating among this network of focal points and pouring out to envelop the world, thus helping to form a channel for the downpouring of Light and Love into the body of humanity.

The triangles work, introduced by the Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul during his collaboration with Alice A. Bailey, is a valuable service to humanity and can be done along with Transmission Meditation.

Referral to groups

For information about the group closest to you, send your name, complete mailing address, and telephone number through our feedback page. This information is collected only for this purpose and will not be given out or used in any other way.

Note: If there is no existing group in an area, new inquirers are referred to previous inquirers from that area in the hope that, eventually, someone will take the initiative and a new group will be formed. For such referrals, only your telephone number is given.

If you form a new Transmission Meditation group, please send the details, including your telephone number via our feedback page and indicate whether you wish to receive referrals from us.

For more information read the book

With the brief information provided on this web site your group will be able to do Transmission Meditation. However, to better understand this scientific process and how to become more proficient meditators, we recommend that you read Transmission: A Meditation for the New Age, by Benjamin Creme.
