the theogony of the creative gods

“The best metaphysical definition of primeval theogony in the spirit of the Vedantins may be found in the “Notes on the Bhagavad Gita” by T. Subba Row.

Parabrahman, the unknown and the incognizable, as the lecturer tells his audience:  “is not Ego, it is not non-ego, nor is it consciousness…it is not even Atman…(but) though not itself an object of knowledge, it is yet capable of supporting and giving rise to every kind of object and every kind of existence which becomes an object of knowledge. …(It) is the one essence from which starts into existence a center of energy”, which he calls Logos.

The Hebrew Kabbalists give it in a shape which esoterically is identical with the Vedantic.

AIN-SOPH, they taught, could not be comprehended, could not be located, nor named, though the causeless cause of all.

Hence its name – AIN-SOPH – is a term of negation, “the inscrutable, the incognizable, and the unnameable.”

They made of it, therefore, a boundless circle, a sphere, of which human intellect, with the utmost stretch, could only perceive the vault.”


H. P. Blavatsky
