cosmogenesis: our world, its growth and development (stanza vi)

“6.   THE OLDER WHEELS ROTATED DOWNWARD AND UPWARD…THE MOTHER’S SPAWN FILLED THE WHOLE (KOSMOS).
(Kosmos, in our stanzas means our own Solar System, not the Infinite Universe.)

 
THERE WERE BATTLES FOUGHT BETWEEN THE CREATORS AND THE DESTROYERS, AND BATTLES FOUGHT FOR SPACE; THE SEED APPEARING AND REAPPEARING CONTINUOUSLY.

 
The phrase “older Wheels” refers to the worlds or Globes of our chain as they were during the “previous Rounds”.

 
Here “Seed” stands for “the World-germ”, viewed by Science as material particles in a highly attenuated condition, but in Occult physics as “Spiritual particles”, i.e., supersensuous matter existing in a state of primeval differentiation.

 
In theogony, every Seed is an ethereal organism, from which evolves later on a celestial being, a God.”

 

 

7.    MAKE THY CALCULATIONS, O LANOO, IF THOU WOULDST LEARN THE CORRECT AGE OF THY SMALL WHEEL (CHAIN).

 
ITS FOURTH SPOKE IS OUR MOTHER (EARTH).

 
REACH THE FOURTH “FRUIT” OF THE FOURTH PATH OF KNOWLEDGE THAT LEADS TO NIRVANA, AND THOU SHALT COMPREHEND, FOR THOU SHALT SEE.

 
The “small Wheel” is our chain of spheres, and the fourth spoke is our Earth, the fourth in the chain.

 
There are four grades of initiation mentioned in exoteric works, which are known respectively in Sanskrit as “Srotapanna” (“stream winner), “Sakridagamin (“once returner”), “Anagamin” (“never returner”), and “Arhat” (“worthy one”) – the four paths to Nirvana, in this, our Fourth Round, bearing the same appellations.

 
(“‘He who has entered the stream’ – that leads to the Nirvanic ocean. This name indicates the first Path.

 
The name of the second is the Path of Sakridagamin – ‘he who will receive birth (only) once more’.

 
The third is called Anagamin – ‘he who will be reincarnated no more’, unless he so desires in order to help mankind.

 
The fourth Path is known as that of Rahat or Arhat. This is the highest. An Arhat sees Nirvana in his life, For him it is no post-mortem state, but Samadhi, during which he experiences all Nirvanic bliss.”)”
