SEVEN RAYS OF DEVELOPMENT
The seven rays of development are the seven major streams of the formative cosmic forces of the universe. In this series of lessons, Vitvan provides students with an understanding of these rays and how they relate to the Self-development process.
These first three rays are called Will, Love, Activity; those three generate the other four called Science, Harmony, Ceremony and Devotion. In this course of lessons, Vitvan describes each of these rays and the characteristics of individuals functioning on them. Using this information, not only can we cooperate with our own development, but we can also better understand how to deal with one another.

We all stand on the threshold of putting forth and sound our scales,... and we will incarnate in an environment, even to the genealogy, and in the country, that will afford the best opportunity to experience expression and development on the weakest point."
