stanza 1, slokas 1-2

STANZA I.
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:  It is the first manifestation, then?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is the 3rd but it overlaps the 4th.

 
The President:  Then the first Logos is the first point within the circle.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  The first point, because there is the circle, the circle which has neither limit nor boundaries, nor can it have a name nor attributes, nor anything, and this point which is put there, is the unmanifested Logos. Which is simultaneous with that line you draw across the diameter.

 
The first line is the Father-Mother and then comes from that Father-Mother the second Logos, that is to say, the manifested word.

 
For instance in the Hindu Puranas, it is said (and the Orientalists have said a good deal about that also) that the first production of Akasa is sound.

 
Now Akasa is just what is called there the Mother or the Father-Mother (call it whichever you like), and sound means there simply speech or expression of the unuttered thought;

 

and it is the Logos, that which the Greeks and Platonists called the Logos, and is just that which is sound and which made Dr. Wilson and many other Orientalists say “What fools these Hindus are!”

 
They speak of Akasa, which is, according to our showing, Chaos, and from this Chaos they make sound proceed.

 
It means just that which was adopted subsequently by St. John, the Evangelist, who speaks about the Logos, saying just the same thing in other words.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
