How to Read The Worlds of ECK Chart
This is a road map to the inner planes or heavens. You can use this chart to plan your spiritual travels or to better understand where you have been or what you have experienced.
There is a bold line dividing the top half and lower half of the chart; this separates the lower worlds from the higher God Worlds of ECK. Thus, the chart shows which worlds are predominantly negative and which are positive (this is noted on the left side of the chart). The right side of the chart shows that the lower worlds are the training ground for Self-Realization and the higher worlds are the training ground for God-Realization.
The first column gives the names of the plane. Next to the name, in the second column, is the word to sing or chant to go to that plane. In the third column is the sound you might hear or recall if you have traveled there. There are also brief descriptions of what each lower plane is about.
The chart also shows the color associated with each plane—the color you may see or recall as predominating there.
Each of these worlds, or planes, has one main Golden Wisdom Temple and many minor temples in which you can study. These temples and the ECK Masters who teach there can be found in ECK Wisdom Temples, Spiritual Cities, & Guides: A Brief History.
