stanza 3, slokas 5-9

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.


“Dr. Williams:  What would you say was the relationship of fire on the different planes?  Could you say anything of the relationship which fire on the lowest plane bears to fire on the highest?

Mme. Blavatsky:   It is beyond our fine perceptive faculties. There is an unbroken relation, because one proceeds from the other. It is a falling into matter and a forming into destiny.

Dr. Williams:  That is precisely the point I was after, if the one was the inner essential life of the other. If fire on the fourth plane was the inner essential life of fire on the third plane, and so on downwards.

Mme. Blavatsky:  If you speak on the planetary chain, then it will be the seventh on our plane, that is to say, it will become the Atma. It corresponds to Atma on our plane, and we cannot see Atma, but if you can imagine yourself living on the A and B planets, so it is on the spheres A and Z, then it will become Pho {four}.

Dr. Williams:  I was thinking more especially of the seven planes into which human life was divided.

The President:  Speaking with reference to what was said about electricity being the fourth principle; the kama-rupa of the amber.

Dr. Williams:  Yes.

The President:  There one would say the change from planet to planet was a molecular change, probably.

Mme. Blavatsky:  Then the molecules of the change also on the other planes.

Mr. B. Keightley:  There is a great deal of that in Keely’s inter-etheric ideas. (John Worrell Keely)

Mme. Blavatsky:  He cannot bring it out altogether, because he is neither an occultist nor an orthodox scientist, and he will keep to his own prejudices, but otherwise he is a very grand man and discoverer. What do they say of him, Mr. Fullerton (Alexander Fullerton), in America?

Mr. Fullerton:  There have been difficulties growing out of the constitution of his company, and various things of that kind which led to a suspicion of dishonesty. That is the popular impression.

Mme. Blavatsky:  He was too sanguine in his expectations. He thought he could just take Parabrahm by the coat-tails and show him to the public. It is a perfect impossibility. I said it from the first, it could not be. I said it always, it was perfectly useless.

Mr. Gardner:  He won’t stick to one thing.

Mme. Blavatsky:  He wants to go on too much and too high, and therefore he will have failures always, because if he were to hold only to those few things he has found out, really he would have the greatest success, and he could bring to himself and on his side all the men of science, but he won’t do it.

He wants to go so much into the metaphysical that although the physicists don’t want to confess it, they cannot follow him on to the plane of science. It is impossible, because then they will become Roger Bacons (Franciscan Friar), not Crookeses.”

H. P. Blavatsky
