cosmogenesis: fohat…the child of the septenary hierarchies (stanza v)

“2.    THEY MAKE OF HIM THE MESSENGER OF THEIR WILL.

 
THE DZYU BECOMES FOHAT; THE SWIFT SON OF THE DIVINE SONS, WHOSE SONS ARE THE LIPIKA, RUNS CIRCULAR ERRANDS.

 
HE IS THE STEED, AND THE THOUGHT IS THE RIDER (I.E., HE IS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THEIR GUIDING THOUGHT).

 
HE PASSES LIKE LIGHTNING THROUGH THE FIERY CLOUDS (COSMIC MISTS); TAKES THREE, AND FIVE, AND SEVEN STRIDES THROUGH THE SEVEN REGIONS ABOVE AND THE SEVEN REGIONS BELOW (THE WORLD TO BE).

 
HE LIFTS HIS VOICE, AND CALLS THE INNUMERABLE SPARKS (ATOMS) AND JOINS THEM TOGETHER.

 
This shows the “Primordial Seven” using for their Vahan (vehicle, or the manifested subject which becomes the symbol of the Power directing it), Fohat, called in consequence, the “Messenger of their will” – the fiery whirlwind.

 
Dzyu is the one real (magical) knowledge, or Occult Wisdom; which dealing with eternal truths and primal causes, becomes almost omnipotence when applied in the right direction.

 
In this case, Dzyu is the expression of the collective Wisdom of the Dhyani-Buddhas.

 
According to Orientalists, there are five Dhyanis who are the “celestial” Buddhas, of whom the human Buddhas are manifestations in the world of form and matter.

 
Esoterically, however, the Dhyani-Buddhas are seven, of whom five only have hitherto manifested, and two are to come.

 
They are, so to speak, the eternal prototypes of the Buddhas who appear on this earth, each of whom has his particular divine prototype.

 
Fohat, being one of the most, if not the most important character in esoteric Cosmogony, should be minutely described.

 
Fohat is the one thing in the yet unmanifested Universe and another in the phenomenal and Cosmic World.

 
In the latter, he is that occult, electric, vital power, which, under the Will of the Creative Logos, unites and brings together all forms, giving them the first impulse which becomes in time law.

 
But in the unmanifested Universe, he is simply that potential creative power in virtue of whose action the NOUMENON of all future phenomena divides, so to speak, but to reunite in a mystic supersensuous act, and emit the creative ray.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
