Flaming Diamond" represents the Greater Rod of Initiation,
used at the third and higher Initiations by Sanat Kumara, the
Lord of the World, on Shamballa. Charged at each World Cycle
from the Central Spiritual Sun, it focuses Electrical Fire through
the centres of the Initiate. There is a "Lesser Rod"
used by the Christ at the first two Initiations. (Painted in 1973-74)
