stanza 6, sloka 4

Stanza VI
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.”

“A Lady:   Are they great magicians?

Mme. Blavatsky:  They say they are good men, and that the [   ] {Mulakurumbas} are mortally afraid of them.

The Lady:  They have superior magic then?

Mme. Blavatsky:  They have the most extraordinary power. There was 30 years ago a terrible lawsuit there. There were [   ] {Mulakurumbas} who had done such awful things that the [   ] {Badagas} went and made a conspiracy to burn them, and they roasted them in their village. And it was said that they could not burn their houses unless there was a Toda present.

The legend goes that they brought a Toda with them, though they swore always that they never did that, because I don’t think in 70 years there was one Toda who was ever imprisoned, except on the testimony of one of these women. I have read all the things General Morgan gave me.

This Toda disappeared, and nobody knew where he was gone to, and that was the only Toda who was in prison. You may put millions of money, coins and everything in their way – they never were known to take a thing. You never saw such honesty as they have.

Mr. B. Keightley:  Are they intellectually intelligent?

Mme. Blavatsky:  General Morgan said to me:  “They are very intellectual.” Claud Vincent says they are amazingly intellectual, that they will talk on everything; but their dignity and manner and way is something extraordinary.

Mr. B. Keightley:  I think you hinted somewhere that they are really of Greek descent?

Mme. Blavatsky:  No, they are of Lanka descent, not Greek. They have got their own things. I have written all these legends that they gave me themselves, and what I heard of all these I have written in Russian (The Enigmatical Tribes of the Blue Hills of India -1884/85).

They say by the calculation of the Moon it comes to something like 22 thousand years that they came on the hills, the blue hills of the gods, and that their forefathers were in the service of Rama.

This is their story, and that they came from Lanka; but it was not what it is now. It was enormous. It was a part of the continent of the Atlanteans when it sunk, but they are the most mysterious race. I wish you had an opportunity to see them, what handsome men, all with long, beautiful wavy hair, even their old men.”

H. P. Blavatsky
