stanza 1, slokas 3-4

STANZA I.
3. UNIVERSAL MIND WAS NOT, FOR THERE WERE NO AH-HI TO CONTAIN IT.
4. THE SEVEN WAYS TO BLISS WERE NOT. THE GREAT CAUSES OF MISERY WERE NOT, FOR THERE WAS NO ONE TO PRODUCE AND GET ENSNARED BY THEM.

 

“Mr. B. Keightley:  Well, then, that settles the question.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  After this comes the question of the reflection of the triad in space and time, therefore, how can you apply anything mechanical.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  That is what I wanted you to say. I got what I wanted.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Question 4. “Have these Ah-hi been men in previous Manvantaras or will they become so?”

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They will become men in subsequent Manvantaras.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Then do they remain permanently on this very exalted plane during the whole period of the Manvantaras?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Of the 15 figures? (Manvantaric life cycle relating to the solar system, “a duration of time which extends over 15 figures.”)

 
No, they pass through all the planes until they become on the third plane Manasaputra, the sons of Manas or mind. They are Arupa. On the highest plane these Ah-hi are arupa, that is to say formless, bodiless, without any substance, without anything, they are breaths.

 
On the 2nd plane they first approach to rupa or to form. Then on the third they become Manasa-rupa, those who become incarnated in men.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Then is that stage taken in one Manvantara or are those various stages?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is. It is all the same thing, only a distinction is made. On every plane they reach they are called by other names.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Quite so.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  There is more and more differentiation because what we talk about is the homogeneous substance, which we call substance from our conceit, because it cannot be any substance which we cannot conceive of. Later they become substance, if you like.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Then the Ah-hi of this Manvantara –

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They do not exist any more, if you please. They have become long ago {“Planetary, Solar, Lunar, and lastly incarnating egos.”} Read the Secret Doctrine, you will see the thing there.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  I understood you to say they did not become men in this Manvantara.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  The 15 figures apply to the solar system. the first answers relate to the beginning of the whole objective universe, but after that, when you begin to speak about the Father-Mother, then it relates to our objective universe and to the solar system only because our teaching does not busy itself at all with things outside. At least those things that I have selected.

 
I could not go on and select the whole thing. I have only taken that which relates to our solar system. I have just taken two or three just to show the general idea, and then skipped over whole Stanzas and came to the point. I have said there are some 60 Stanzas passed over. I would have had compliments from the Daily News if I had translated the whole of it.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Then on the re-awakening, will the men of one Manvantara have to pass through a similar stage to the Ah-hi stage in the next Manvantara?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  In many, many Manvantaras at the end of the tail of the serpent; when the tail will be in the mouth of the serpent, I might say.

 
What have you got the ambition of becoming? An Ah-hi, or what? You will have time, my dear fellow, to do many things before you become an Ah-hi.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
