stanza 2, slokas 1-2

1. . . . Where were the builders, the luminous sons of Manvantaric dawn? . . . In the unknown darkness in their Ah-hi Paranishpanna. The producers of form from no-form—the root of the world—the Devamatri and Svâbhâvat, rested in the bliss of non-being.
2. . . . Where was silence? Where the ears to sense it? No, there was neither silence nor sound; naught save ceaseless eternal breath, which knows itself not.


“Mr. Kingsland:  If you have no knowledge of universals, how are you to proceed from universal to particulars? What knowledge of universals has this century, we will say? They have got no knowledge of the law of God, that is the highest ideal of the universe.

Mme. Blavatsky:  A very high one, yes. 

Mr. B. Keightley:  But they have not carried out the canon which was laid down, that their ideas should be tried by strict logic.

Mr. Kingsland:  Excuse me, Herbert Spencer does not.

Mme. Blavatsky:  Herbert Spencer call it the First Cause, and he calls it the Absolute and I will show it {to} you in his First Principles. He calls the Absolute “the First Cause” in three lines. Well, the First Cause cannot be the Absolute because the First Cause is the first effect.

Mr. Kingsland:  That only prove to me that a man who may be considered to be one who has the highest intellect has no knowledge of universals.

Mme. Blavatsky:  Because he has been made to study on your methods.

Mr. Kingsland:  How can the poor fellow help that?

Mme. Blavatsky:  You take Solomom Ben Judah , the great philosopher, who was a Jew, one of the greatest men living, he whose works have been refused by the French Academy – I don’t know what you call it, the French University. They proclaim them heretical, because they say he was an Aristotelian, and Aristotle was not then in odor of sanctity. This Aristotelian has more spirituality in him than any of the great men of science that I ever read about.

Because he explains Kabalah just in the way that The Secret Doctrine would explain it. [The “Secret Doctrine” of the East]. In the most spiritual way he explains it, and yet he is call an Aristotelian, and why? Because he had an intuition. He is one of the greatest of the poets.”


H. P. Blavatsky
