“7. BEHOLD, O LANOO (A STUDENT OR CHELA WHO STUDIES PRACTICAL ESOTERICISM)! THE RADIANT CHILD OF THE TWO, THE UNPARELLED REFULGENT GLORY, BRIGHT SPACE, SON OF DARK SPACE, WHO EMERGES FROM THE DEPTHS OF THE GREAT DARK WATERS. IT IS OEAOHOO, THE YOUNGER, THE *** (WHOM THOU KNOWEST NOW AS KUAN-SHIH-YIN).
HE SHINES FORTH AS THE SUN. HE IS THE BLAZING DIVINE DRAGON OF WISDOM.
THE EKA (ONE) IS CHATUR (FOUR), AND CHATUR TAKES TO ITSELF THREE, AND THE UNION PRODUCES THE SAPTA (SEVEN) IN WHOM ARE THE SEVEN, WHICH BECOME THE TRIDASA (THE THRICE TEN) OR THE HOSTS AND THE MULTITUDES.
BEHOLD HIM LIFTING THE VEIL, AND UNFURLING IT FROM EAST TO WEST. HE SHUTS OUT THE ABOVE AND LEAVES THE BELOW TO BE SEEN AS THE GREAT ILLUSION.
HE MARKS THE PLACES FOR THE SHINING ONES (STARS) AND TURNS THE UPPER (SPACE) INTO A SHORELESS SEA OF FIRE, AND THE ONE MANIFESTED (ELEMENT) INTO THE GREAT WATERS.
“Bright Space, son of dark Space”, corresponds to the Ray dropped at the first thrill of the new “Dawn” into the great Cosmic depths, from which it re-emerges differentiated as Oeaohoo the younger (the “new LIFE”), to become, to the end of the life-cycle, the germ of all things.
Before our globe became egg-shaped (and the Universe also) “a long trail of cosmic dust (or fire mist) moved and writhed like a serpent in Space”.
The “Spirit of God moving on Chaos” was symbolized by every nation in the shape of a fiery serpent breathing fire and light upon the promordial waters, until it has incubated cosmic matter and made it assume the anular shape of a serpent with its tail in its mouth – which symbolizes not only Eternity and Infinitude, but also the globular shape of all the bodies formed within the Universe from that fiery mist.
The Universe, as well as the Earth and Man, cast off periodically, serpent-like, their old skins, to assume new ones after a time of rest.”
H. P. Blavatsky
