Stanza VI, Sloka 5
5. At the fourth, the sons are told to create their images. One third refuses – to obey.
The curse is pronounced; they will be born on the fourth suffer and cause suffering; this is the first war.
“Mr. Kingsland: Take the first class of Lunar Pitris. They have to go through the first round on our planetary chain, in one of the elemental kingdoms.
Mr. B. Keightley: No, they go through the three elemental kingdoms – mineral, animal, vegetable kingdoms – up to the human stage, and just enter it on globe A. Then they repeat the same process on globe B, on globe C, D and all round through the first round.
The second class of monads arriving from the Lunar chain are a stage behind. They don’t reach the human stage, they stop one stage short of that all through the first round; the third class of monads, a stage still later, and so on. So that if you take the Second Round, the first class have reached the human stage already, but the remaining classes each have one or more stages to complete in that round or subsequent rounds.
Mr. Kingsland: It is rather difficult to follow.
Mr. B. Keightley: That is the way it seems to be stated here.
Mr. Mead: But if all these seven classes of Lunar Pitris had reached a man stage on the Lunar chain, had they – all the seven classes – reached a human stage, so to speak?
Mme. Blavatsky: The human stage on the Moon is far inferior to that of the Earth, because every time that the principles of a plane go to form another plane, it is always on a higher scale.
Mr. Ingram: But they had, all of them, reached that stage, but they differed from themselves in order of merit.
Mme. Blavatsky: You don’t think that the principles shot from the Moon in one day created the whole chain? It certainly required millions and millions of years to do such a thing as that.
Once that globe A was ready, then the Lunar Pitris of the globe A passed into it. Then the others remained yet there during the time that the second, B, was produced; then the principles began shooting out from globe B of the Lunar chain, on to our earthly chain, and then the second ones came in.
During the first round, when it comes to the last globe, then only it is that you can say the whole lunar chain is at an end, you understand, that it is dead, as it is now. But to the last moment they come.”
H. P. Blavatsky
