stanza 3, slokas 2-4

STANZA III.
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.
4. Then the three fall into the four. The radiant essence becomes seven inside, seven outside. The luminous egg, which in itself is three, curdles and spreads in milk-white curds throughout the depths of mother, the root that grows in the depths of the ocean of life.

 
“Mr. Gardner:  There is a question I should like to ask you. You referred to it in the second volume of The Secret Doctrine, on the Pyramids.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  The Pyramid again has something to do with the Son.

 
Mr. Gardner:  You say man is represented by 113, numerical value. Do you mean that is the Hebrew of the word man?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Yes, in the Kabalah, it is. It is Kabalistically the value of the Hebrew characters.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  According to Mr. Ralston Skinner.

 
The President:  But 113 adds up to 5; and the five-pointed star represents man always.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It represents man by the letters, because the Hebrew word means man; if you take every letter and if you take the corresponding number and if you put these numbers together, it gives you 113.

 
Mr. Gardner:  The numerical value of the Hebrew letters.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Certainly, of the Hebrew letters. It does not mean at all the Sanskrit letters. I never said it did. Every system has got its own calculations. In Hebrew it is quite a different thing. If you take all the signs of the Zodiac and if you put them together and sum up the numbers, every sign of the Zodiac will give you a name of the 12 sons of Jacob.

 
Mr. Gardner:  It is man in Hebrew. It is not man in English.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  No, but the English language has not invented the language of the Kabalah. It takes the property of other persons and then sets itself up as very high.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
