THE DAWN HORSE TESTAMENT (1991)
Introduction to “The Plight of the Heart-Husband”
The Titles of the Prologue, the Forty-Five Chapters, and
the Epilogue of His Testament of Secrets are Heart-Master Da
Avabhasas briefest Epitome of the entire Testament.
Together, these Titles form what Heart-Master Da calls “The
Plight Of The Heart-Husband”.
“The Plight Of The Heart-Husband” is formally and
regularly read aloud, in their daily occasions of
sacramental worship, by all formally acknowledged
practitioners of the Way of the Heart. And every event of
such recitation provides a sacred occasion for Contemplating
the bodily Form, the Spiritual Presence, and the Very State
of Hridaya-Samartha Sat-Guru Da.
The phrase “Heart-Husband” refers to the True
Heart-Master, Da Avabhasa, Who is the Living Manifestation
of the inherently Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine
Self, and Who is the Free Transmitter of the Great Power, or
Husbanding Influence, that Awakens every being to the Divine
Person and Self-Condition.
The “Plight” that Heart-Master Da Avabhasa had to endure
was an Ordeal of Submission to mankind, whereby He
Demonstrated and Established the Way of the Heart. The word
“plight” itself also denotes a binding promise or pledge.
Thus, by means of “The Plight Of The Heart-Husband”, and His
Testament of Secrets as a whole, Heart-Master Da Confesses
and Promises His Eternal Commitment to the Awakening and
Liberation of all beings.
“Plight” also connotes a weaving. “The Plight Of The
Heart-Husband” is a kind of “weavers pathway”, braided into
the fabric of Heart-Master Da Avabhasas Testament of
Secrets, such that, by its means, Heart-Master Da Avabhasa
Himself may pass from the Empowered text and into the heart
of His every devotee.
