stanza 3, slokas 1-3

STANZA III.
1. . . . The last vibration of the seventh eternity thrills through infinitude. The mother swells, expanding from within without, like the bud of the lotus.
2. The vibration sweeps along, touching with its swift wing the whole universe and the germ that dwelleth in darkness: the darkness that breathes over the slumbering waters of life. . .
3. Darkness radiates light, and light drops one solitary ray into the mother-deep. The ray shoots through the virgin egg the ray causes the eternal egg to thrill, and drop the non- eternal germ, which condenses into the world-egg.

 

 

“Mr. A. Keightley:  Then Manu is a unit of consciousness which differentiates into a multitude.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Then is Manu pre-Manvantaric? What I am wanting to get at is this.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  What becomes of Manu at the end of the Manvantara?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Manu is not individuality. It is not one. It is the whole {of} mankind.

 
Mr. Scott-Elliot:  The whole of mankind?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Certainly, it is not an individual. The Hindu will come and tell you man {Manu ?} is an individual, but I say it is perfect nonsense. Manu is that, the forefathers, the Pitris, the progenitors of mankind, as it is called.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  In other words, it is a name applying to the Monads which come from the Lunar Chain.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Why are they called the Lunar? Because the moon is said – of course, in defiance of all astronomy – to be the parent of the Earth; and these are the Monads.

 
They progressed and passed through the First Round, and then it is they who, having become the first men, the Manus give birth to others by evolving their astral selves.

 
They give birth to humanity, they give birth to the animals, and to all kinds of things. So in the Puranas they say for instance such and such a high yogi gave birth to all the serpents or all the birds – this, that, and the other – you see it there.

 
Mr. Scott-Elliot:  What I wanted to express was the perfected humanity of one Round becomes the Dhyan-Chohans, or the Dhyani-Buddhas of the next Manvantara, and are the guiding rulers of the universe.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  But what do you call Manvantara? We call Manvantara seven Rounds; and this is a small, little Manvantara, of our globe.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
