3. The hour had not yet struck; the ray had not yet flashed into the Germ; the Matripadma had not yet swollen.
4. Her heart had not yet opened for the one ray to enter, thence to fall, as three into four, into the lap of Maya.
“Mr. B. Keightley: We apologize to you, but the explanation of the whole thing is the pyramid.
The President: It explains it all, because we get in that four what we could not see at all, the third dimension of space, and consequently Maya. One is apt to look on the Tetragrammaton as above Maya.
Mme. Blavatsky: Did you read my article in The Theosophist on the Tetragrammaton? The Kabbalists say something else, but in my sight the Tetragrammaton is not very high. I have been just answering Mr. Subba Row. He said:
“How can it be seven principles? I said: “I am not going to worship the Tetragrammaton. I do not see why I should. I do not worship differentiated things.” “I know only of the Absolute and perfectly homogeneous. I can invent for myself any kind of conceptions and flapdoodles.”
The tetraktys by which the Pythagoreans swore was quite a different kind of tobacco, if you please, quite another thing. You just take the third chapter of Genesis and the beginning of the fourth and you find there the Tetragrammaton. You find Eve and Adam and Jehovah, who becomes Cain. That is what you find.
There is the Tetragrammaton. That is the first one that is symbolized. Then comes at the end of the fourth chapter already the human conception, and there is Enoch and there is Seth, and to him was born a son, Enos.
And it is written in the real Jewish scrolls, “From that time man began to be male and female”, and they have translated it in the authorized – James’s version – “From that time man began to call upon the Lord.” I ask you if you can translate it like that, when in the real Hebrew you see men began to be called “Jod-he-vah”.
That is always so, you know. They say one thing in the Hebrew scriptures and they translate it as another. They do not take into consideration the fact that people had all symbolical and figurative language.
Then they will never come and see this difference: it is always “Lord God” or “God”, or “Jehovah” and all that, nothing else, and even “Jehovah” says to Moses that he never was called by the name Jehovah.
Centuries and thousands of years before that there is Abraham, who builds an alter to “Jehovah”. Is it so, or not? “
