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. _____:  Have you any theory as to the numerous minor planets?

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  178 or more of them. Planetoi {Planetoids?}, it is.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  There is not the smallest star that is not personified. You may believe how many when even exoterically they give 330 million of gods, and every one of these gods, is a star – a visible star or planet.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  And has a story.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Now the astronomers have not got more than 60,000 stars.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  They have got some millions.

 
Mr. Holt:  Taking the zodiac, 218,000,000.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  And the Hindus have 330,000,000, and every one of them has its history and its place and space.

 
Mr. Kingsland:  Has its life and adventures.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Yes; I bring it in, because every god is connected with a star, that is why. Oh, they knew all; I can assure they are a wonderful people.

 
Why is it that they knew perfectly, without any telescopes or instruments, the seven Pleaides – the seventh sister which now has disappeared, and you can hardly see it with the best telescope? And they knew it perfectly, and it had not disappeared in their day. Therefore calculate how many thousand years they must have had this astronomer’s knowledge.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Their tables for the Moon’s motion, which have been absolutely proved to have been obtained by independent data, and more accurate than the very best modern tables.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Surely, it is wonderful, and they have no telescopes. What had they? The most rudimentary things, yet see how they knew it, because in the temples and the hierophants, the twice-born, they had all the things a thousand times better than we have now; but they don’t speak of it; it is gone. It was sacred with them.

 
They did not make a speculation of it simply on the material plane, as they do here. It was their religion, their most sacred doctrine. Certainly they did not give it to the hoi polloi.

 
Mr. Holt:  They would not have needed telescopes to see these things. Could not they have seen them astrally?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  In the Pleiades, they disappeared. You cannot see them now without a telescope.

 
Mr. Holt:  It has its astral counterpart. It is double. Then they could see.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They can see not only that, they had their seers, but they had astronomers likewise.

 
Mr. Gardner:  They had their instruments, as well.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  They are what Proctor (R. A. Proctor, English astronomer) writes about of the knowledge of the Chaldeans and the Egyptians.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
