stanza 4, sloka 5

Stanza IV
5. “Darkness” The Boundless, or the No-Number, Adi-Nidana Svabhavat: –
I. The Adi-Sanat, the number, for He is One.
II. The voice of the Lord Svabhavat, the numbers, for he is one and nine.
III. The “Formless Square.”
And these three enclosed with the O are the Sacred Four; and the ten are the Arupa Universe. Then come the “sons”, the seven fighters, the one, the eighth left out, and His breath which is the light-maker.


“Mr. A. Keightley:  On page 101, line 18, it is stated that the Sun is merely the elder brother of the planets – but on page 103 it is stated that the planets were all comets and suns in their origin, and would therefore appear to be older than the Sun. What is therefore the real meaning of these statements?

Mme. Blavatsky:  So far as our planetary system is concerned, the Sun is the oldest member in it. His place was fixed – as is seen by the language of the stanzas – at a very early period of the Manvantara, but the planets reached their places at a much later period.

These planets {were?} dethroned suns, comets, etc. Each of them was at some time the central star, the sun in its own system, but of a lower order than this one, and in a previous Manvantara. In the same way so will our Sun become a planet in another Manvantara, only and also in another and higher system than ours.

First he will be broken into innumerable fragments, which will form comets and meteors; these will be scattered through space to be ultimately drawn together by the Fohatic affinity. Well, any questions?

Mr. Kingsland:  Then what becomes of the planets in this planetary chain? Are they absorbed in the Sun?

Mme. Blavatsky:  No, they are not.

Mr. A. Keightley:  Then what will become of the physical basis of these planets?

Mme. Blavatsky:  What do you mean by “They will be absorbed in the Sun”? They are not thrown out of the Sun. Occultism teaches there is no such thing as that.

Why, it is the modern theory of science that the planets are thrown off from the Sun. They were never thrown off – and then they will be absorbed again in the Sun. They will be disintegrated in the Manvantara. They will scatter into fragments and go into some higher life, into a higher system.

Mr. A. Keightley:  Will the solid bodies of the planets in our system disintegrate into small fragments?

Mme. Blavatsky:   Just the same as the earth – of course they will.”

H. P. Blavatsky
