stanza 3, slokas 5-9

STANZA III.
5. The root remains, the light remains, the curds remain, and still Oeaohoo is one.
6. The root of life was in every drop of the ocean of immortality, and the ocean was radiant light, which was fire, and heat, and motion. Darkness vanished and was no more ; it disappeared in its own essence, the body of fire and water, or father and mother.
7. Behold, oh Lanoo! The radiant child of the two, the unparalleled refulgent glory: Bright Space Son of Dark Space, which emerges from the depths of the great dark waters. It is Oeaohoo the younger, the * * * He shines forth as the son; he is the blazing Divine Dragon of Wisdom ; the One is Four, and Four takes to itself Three, and the Union produces the Sapta, in whom are the seven which become the Tridasa (or the hosts and the multitudes). Behold him lifting the veil and unfurling it from east to west. He shuts out the above, and leaves the below to be seen as the great illusion. He marks the places for the shining ones, and turns the upper into a shoreless sea of fire, and the one manifested into the great waters.
8. Where was the germ and where was now darkness? Where is the spirit of the flame that burns in thy lamp, oh Lanoo? The germ is that, and that is light, the white brilliant son of the dark hidden father.
9. Light is cold flame, and flame is fire, and fire produces heat, which yields water: the water of life in the great mother.

 

“Mr. Gardner:  I should like to ask about the question of weight with regard to that triangle. You told us –

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  This is out of the programme.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Number 3, you have practically answered. It is this, what are the meanings of “water’ in the same applications?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Well, water being composed of 1/9 of hydrogen (a very inflammable gas, as we are told, and without which no organic body is found), of 8/9 of oxygen (which we are told produces combustion when too rapidly combined with a body), what is water but one of the forms of primordial fire, in a cold or latent and fluidic form? It is nothing else. This is in reality what water is.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  It is the cold state.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  The cold and fluidic state of fire. It is the female aspect of fire, as matter is the female aspect of spirit.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  Is there any connection between the numbers?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Most assuredly. Numbers and colours, everything is connected. This, if you please, is esoteric.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Question 4. Are fire and water the same as Kwan-Shai-Yin and Kwan-Yin?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Reverse the question and ask are Kwan-Shai-Yin and Kwan-Yin the same as fire and water, or rather are the latter the symbols of these, and I will say yes: but what does it mean?

 
The two deities in their primordial manifestation are the Diadic or dual God, the sexual nature and Prakriti.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky.
