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. Kingsland:  You don’t use the term “causeless” in the sense of cause-that-is-not-a-cause for anything else, but you use it in the sense of a cause that has not a cause behind it.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is a universal potentiality of that which will become potency. That is to say, if there is a difference in the English language between potentiality and potency. Is there?

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Certainly there is, distinctly.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  That overcomes your objection, then.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Yes, I only put it as a paradox of expression.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They call it the rootless root; that is to say, it has no root because it is causality itself – causation.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  It has no root, but it is the root of everything.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is the spiritual basis of all cause, which Mulaprakriti certainly is not. They say Akasa has only one attribute, and it, is sound, in the Vishnu Purana.

 
What is sound? It is Logos, that is to say, the sensuous representation of something.

 
You see, it is very difficult for me to tell you. I speak English like a Spanish cow, and I am very sorry for it, but I cannot speak better, though I try to explain it as well as I can.”

 

H. P. Blavatsky
