1. THE ETERNAL PARENT WRAPPED IN HER EVER INVISIBLE ROBES HAD SLUMBERED ONCE AGAIN FOR SEVEN ETERNITIES.
2. TIME WAS NOT, FOR IT LAY ASLEEP IN THE INFINITE BOSOM OF DURATION.
“Mr. Keightley: Is the first differentiation from the absolute IT female always?
Mme. Blavatsky: It is sexless; but the female aspect is the first it assumes.
Take the Jewish Kabalah. You have “Ain-Soph” which is also the IT, the infinite, the endless, the boundless, the adjectives used in conjunction with IT being negatives of every kind of attributes.
From IT the negative, the zero, 0, proceeds number One, the positive which is Sephera or the Crown. The Talmudists say it is the “Torah”, the law, which they call the wife of “Ain-Soph”.
Now see the Hindu cosmogony. There you find that Parabrahm is not mentioned; but only Mulaprakriti: there is Parabrahm and there is Mulaprakriti, which latter is the lining so to say, or the aspect of Parabrahm in the invisible universe.
Mulaprakriti means the root of matter, but Parabrahm cannot be called the “root”, for it is the rootless root of all that is. Therefore, you must begin with Mulaprakriti, the veil of Brahma as they call it.
Take any cosmogony in the world: you will always find it begins thus; the first manifestation is the Mother Goddess, the reflection, the root of the first plane of substance.
From, or rather in that Mother Goddess is formed the unmanifested Logos her son and husband at once, as he is called the Concealed Father;
and from these two the manifested Logos which is the Son itself – the Architect of all the visible universe.”
H. P. Blavatsky
