stanza 1, slokas 5-8

STANZA I.
5. DARKNESS ALONE FILLED THE BOUNDLESS ALL, FOR FATHER, MOTHER AND SON WERE ONCE MORE ONE, AND THE SON HAD NOT AWAKENED YET FOR THE NEW WHEEL, AND HIS PILGRIMAGE THEREON.
6. THE SEVEN SUBLIME LORDS AND THE SEVEN TRUTHS HAD CEASED TO BE, AND THE UNIVERSE, THE SON OF NECESSITY, WAS IMMERSED IN PARANISHPANNA, TO BE OUTBREATHED BY THAT WHICH IS AND YET IS NOT. NAUGHT WAS.
7. THE CAUSES OF EXISTENCE HAD BEEN DONE AWAY WITH; THE VISIBLE THAT WAS, AND THE INVISIBLE THAT IS, RESTED IN ETERNAL NON-BEING — THE ONE BEING.
8. ALONE THE ONE FORM OF EXISTENCE STRETCHED BOUNDLESS, INFINITE, CAUSELESS, IN DREAMLESS SLEEP; AND LIFE PULSATED UNCONSCIOUS IN UNIVERSAL SPACE, THROUGHOUT THAT ALL-PRESENCE WHICH IS SENSED BY THE OPENED EYE OF THE DANGMA.

 

“Mr. Gardner:  What portion of the machine is Parabrahm?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  What! Put him to bed! Please give him a pillow! Mr. Gardner, my dear man! Shame him, if you please, let him blush – Parabrahm, why, it is all. If there is one mathematical point in the universe where Parabrahm is not, then you had better go to bed, because it does not exist.

 
It is not the present it is eternal. Oh! Do explain, somebody else, will you, please? Tell him some verses from the Veda to refresh him – anything you like.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Supposing you take your conception of a machine. If ultimately you work out your conception of the universe, you bring yourself back to plain, simple, centrifugal and centripetal forces.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  With intelligence, plus intelligence; that will be another kind of “machine”.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Very well, call that the primary differentiation, and get that back to Parabrahm.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Why should it get back to Parabrahm? It will get back to Parabrahm when the universe has finished its Age of Brahma, its cycle.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Very well, then, you get your primary differentiation, and you postulate then that you must have a cause, the great first cause, the Absolute.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  No, I beg your pardon. The great First Cause is not the Absolute, never call it that; the great First Cause is the first unconscious radiation or emanation. Call it what you like, you know English better than I do. That which periodically manifests itself as light.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  The unmanifested Logos, in fact.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Yes, the unmanifested Logos, if you like, but never Parabrahm. It is the causeless cause of all, and Absoluteness cannot, be a cause. That is the great difficulty.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
