stanza 6, slokas 1; 3-4

Stanza VI
1. By the power of the Mother of Mercy and Knowledge – Kwan-Yin – the “triple” of Kwan-shai-Yin, residing in Kwan-yin-Tien, Fohat, the Breath of their Progeny, the Son of the Sons, having called forth, from the lower abyss, the illusive form of Sien-Tchang and the Seven Elements:
3. Of the Seven – first one manifested, six concealed, two manifested, five concealed; three manifested, four concealed; four produced, three hidden; four and one tsan revealed, two and one half concealed; six to be manifested, one laid aside. Lastly, seven small wheel revolving; one giving birth to the other.
4. He builds them in the likeness of older wheels, placing them on the Imperishable Centres.
How does Fohat build them? He collects the fiery dust. He makes balls of fire, runs through them, and round them, infusing life thereinto, then sets them into motion; some one way, some the other way. They are cold, he makes them hot. They are dry, he makes them moist. They shine, he fans and cools them. Thus acts Fohat from one twilight to the other, during Seven Eternities.”

 
“Mr. _____:  Were the occultists aware that there were eight planets?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They knew a great deal more. They simply speak about seven planets. They took the Earth and the Sun as substitutes, because they had planets of which our science now has vaguely and dimly an idea. There is one of the most sacred planets, the second one, which corresponded {to} that body which they take Mercury for. And it is the one between Mercury and the Sun.

 
Mr. _____:  Is there one there?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Most assuredly there is, and they searched for it, and they suspected it, and they cannot find it.

 
Mr. _____:   That is to say, it is not visible to the physical sight.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It is visible, but it is in its last obscuration. It will be seen from Mercury. It will be a moon, when there will be some other planet produced. There are figures for it.

 
Mr. Gardner:  By what name was it known?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Oh, you would like to know it! Ask your instructor. I don’t know it, so I cannot tell you. They wanted to call it Vulcan; they say that they suspected. I don’t know what some of them said; others deny it.

 
Mr. Gardner:  When the eclipse came?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They thought there was something. I don’t think it is anything.

 
Mr. _____:  Does that make it invisible, being in obscuration?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  It may come up again, you understand, but it is in its last brightness. It is as the Moon was before, because the Moon was far less visible than it is now. Now it vampirizes the Earth, but before it didn’t have to vampirize anything; and it was in the last degree of consumption.

 
Mr. Holt:  I don’t think its luminosity would have anything to do with its visibility to this Earth. The darker it were the better for us, because we should see it against the Sun’s disc.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  But they do fancy they caught a glimpse of it during the eclipse.

 
Mr. Gardner:  Do you say the Moon vampirizes on us?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Certainly, it does. All the moons and all the parents vampirize on their children in this space.

 
Mr. Gardner:  Saturn’s moon and Jupiter too?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They are all the same; no altruism among them; It is the survival of the fittest in nature. It is only men who ought not to have this.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
