From the pistes Sophia, it says people who have their mecurial (solar) bodies can be buddha pratyekas, what kind of powers exactly do we get when we our kundalini reaches our ethereal body and then the power we get from astral, mental, causal? I don't get it, Samael Aun Weor, said that when we attain the mental body then we are endowed with mental powers? A christic mind, what mental powers exactly?

And another question, what exactly is the difference in initiation between the bodhisattva or a Sravaka or Buddha Pratyeka? Are there examples?

Thank you

Powers are unique to the initiate. Some initiates develop different qualities during different initiations. It is never uniform for all beings, in the same way that a student in high school does not possess the same qualities, qualifications, and skills as others, even at the same grade.

Initiations are personal. How they unfold for the individual is unique, intuitive, profound, and experiential. Only once you enter and achieve initiation will you know.

Pratyeka Buddhas entered Nirvana in the same manner as initiates who take the bodhisattva path. The difference is that Pratyekas stay in Nirvana and bodhisattvas renounce it.
