"If you study Discipleship in the New Age, by Alice Bailey, the Master DK is working with a group which, from the point of view of the individuals, has been a fantastic success. His work must have speeded the evolution of these individuals immeasurably. It must be one of the great Hierarchical achievements. But as a group experiment, it failed. Certain individuals actually failed to go forward in the group. By their own fault, their own decision, their own lack of ability to work in that way, they dropped out of the group. It seems extraordinary that any one would drop out, when they had a Master actually sending them letters, commenting on their meditational processes. However, some failed to respond to that opportunity. People have that right. This affects the group, but you cannot impose rules and regulations." (Benjamin Creme, Maitreya's Mission, Vol.II, p.605.)

In his article 'Roberto Assagioli: Psychosynthesis, and the Esoteric Roots of Transpersonal Psychology,' (see link below) Al Mankoff gives a list of names of the disciples in the five groups that the Master DK had formed, along with the initials by which they were referred to in this volume (and Vol.II). According to Mr Mankoff in a personal e-mail to the librarian, he compiled his information from essays written by Dr Assagioli as well as from sources close to Assagioli, and a variety of groups that he (Mr Mankoff) had been involved with.

Discipleship in the New Age, Vol.II was published in 1955.

Referenced in Benjamin Creme, Maitreya's Mission, Vol.I, (p.397, 1996ed).
