“3. SAID THE “LORD OF THE SHINING FACE”:
“I SHALL SEND THEE A FIRE WHEN THY WORK IS COMMENCED.
RAISE THY VOICE TO OTHER LOKAS; APPLY TO THY FATHER THE LORD OF THE LOTUS (KUMUDA-PATI) FOR HIS SONS….THY PEOPLE SHALL BE UNDER THE RULE OF THE FATHERS (PITRI-PATI).
THY MEN SHALL BE MORTALS.
THE MEN OF THE LORD OF WISDOM (BUDHA, MERCURY), NOT THE SONS OF SOMA (THE MOON), ARE IMMORTAL.
CEASE THY COMPLAINTS. THY SEVEN SKINS ARE YET ON THEE….THOU ART NOT READY.
THY MEN ARE NOT READY.”
Kumuda-pati is the Moon, the Earth’s parent.
Though the Pitris (Pitar or “Fathers”) are sons of the Gods, elsewhere sons of Brahma and even Rishis, they are generally known as the “lunar” ancestors.
Pitri-pati is the lord or king of the Pitris, Yama, the god of Death and the judge of mortals.
The men of Budha (Mercury) are metaphorically immortal through their Wisdom.
Man’s organism was adapted in every race to its surroundings. The First Root-Race was as ethereal as ours is material.
The progeny of the seven Creators, who evolved the seven primordial Adams, surely required no purified gases to breathe and live upon.
Archaic Scripture teaches that at the commencement of every local Kalpa, or Round, the earth is reborn; “as the human Jiva (monad), when passing into a new womb, gets recovered with a new body, so does the Jiva of the Earth;
it gets a more perfect and solid covering with each Round after re-emerging once more from the matrix of space into objectivity.”
This process is attended, of course, by the throes of the new birth or geological convulsions.”
