stanza 5, slokas 1-5

Stanza V
1. The Primordial Seven, the First Seven Breaths of the Dragon of Wisdom, produce in their turn from their Holy Circumgyrating Breaths the Fiery Whirlwind.
2. They make of Him the Messenger of their will. The Dzyu becomes Fohat, the swift son of the Divine sons whose sons are the Lipika, runs circular errands. Fohat is the steed and the thought is the rider. He passes like lightning through the fiery clouds; takes three, and five, and seven strides through the seven regions above, and the seven below. He lifts his voice, and calls the innumerable sparks, and joins them.
3. He is their guiding spirit and leader. When he commences work, he separate the sparks of the Lower Kingdom that float and thrill with joy in their radiant dwellings, and form therewith the germs of wheels. He places them in the six directions of space, and one in the middle – the central wheel.
4. Fohat traces spiral lines to unite the sixth to the seventh – the crown; an army of the Sons of Light stands at each angle, and the Lipika in the middle wheel. They say: This is good , the first Divine world is ready, the first is now the second. Then the “Divine Arupa” reflects Itself in Chhaya Loka, the first garment of the Anupadaka.
5. Fohat takes five strides and builds a winged wheel at each corner of the square, for the four holy ones and their armies.

 

“Mr. A. Keightley:  Take the solar system. What is the meaning of it?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I don’t know.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Then what are the four corners?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is flapdoodle, because there are no corners in that which is spherical.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  I am afraid, Arch, your cross-examination won’t bring you much.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I am not afraid of cross-examination, to tell you the truth.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  What is the meaning of the evil influence coming from the East {West}?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Because evil influences are illnesses, and it appears they thought the Devil lived there.

 
Mr. A. Keightley:  Why should it be the West and the South which are bad?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  From the South Pole come all the evils of the world; that is why you are not allowed to go to the South Pole, it is evil. To the North Pole you are not allowed to go because it is the land of the Gods. And if you went there you would be desecrated.

 
Seriously speaking, there is some magnetism, something magnetic coming from the South and the West, that is a very bad magnetism, the magnetism of the emanations of the earth. It depends on the earth.

 
Now, let us speak of the earth. Why is it that the Hindus tell you to sleep in a certain way, with your heads so and so, that the magnetism should pass through you in a certain direction?

 
I have read several men {of} science who say that it is not at all a foolish idea. There is such a thing as terrestrial magnetism. When you have calculated where it comes from, then you will see there is some philosophy in the way the evil influences come from the West and the good ones from the East.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
