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.
9. BUT WHERE WAS THE DANGMA WHEN THE ALAYA OF THE UNIVERSE WAS IN PARAMARTHA AND THE GREAT WHEEL WAS ANUPADAKA?
“Mr. A. Keightley: Are there minor chains belonging to these sacred planets? You say the earth has never been one of the sacred planets, and it has a chain.
Mme. Blavatsky: It has a chain and many others have chains, which have not been discovered just as much as the earth’s. That is one of the smallest planets, as you know yourselves.
Mr. Kingsland: What makes the others sacred or secret?
Mme. Blavatsky: I suppose because they have occult influences.
The Chairman: But then the seven are on a different hierarchy, as it were, to the planetary spirit of the earth?
Mme. Blavatsky: Oh, yes. The planetary spirit of the earth is what they call the terrestrial spirit and is not very high. The planetary spirit has nothing to do with the spiritual man.
It has to do with the things of matter with the cosmic beings – they are cosmic rulers, so to say, and they form into shape and fashion things. They have everything to do with matter, but not with spirit. With spirit it is the Dhyani-Buddhas who have to do. It is another hierarchy that has to do with that, and I am explaining it to you here.
The Chairman: These seven planetary spirits, as we should use the phrase, have really nothing to do with the earth, except incidentally.
Mme. Blavatsky: They have everything to do with the earth materially.
Mr. Kingsland: They have to do, in fact, with man in his higher part.
Mme. Blavatsky: They have nothing whatever to do with the spiritual man.
Mr. Kingsland: Have they anything to do with the fifth principle?
Mme. Blavatsky: They have something to do with the fourth principle but with the three higher principles they have nothing to do whatever. I have not finished yet. You asked me what were the things, and I tell you.
First , Dhyan-Chohans was a generic name for all the celestial beings. Second, the Builders are a class called by the ancients Cosmocratores, the builders. They are builders simply like the celestial masons who shape under the orders of the architect, so to speak. They are but the masons to the grand architect of the universe.”
H. P. Blavatsky
