stanza 6, sloka 5

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:  If you can divide each principle into seven you get 49, which is confusing.

 
Mr. _____:  And then divide each of those 49 into seven.

 
Mr. Mead:  One understands that everything is subdivisible into sevens like that, but that Prana principle having two vehicles is difficult to follow.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Prana in man has two vehicles because there is a spiritual life and there is a material, physical life.

 
Now, that which is the Kama-rupa is the grossest sub-principle, so to say, and all that, but that which is in the astral body is the pure spiritual life.

 
Now, if you do not understand this, how will you understand the 49 fires of occultism? If you don’t understand them, you are simply a flapdoodle, and he who wants to be a flapdoodle, let him neglect the 49 fires. That is all I can tell you.

 
The astral body being the shadow or the image of man is in direct communication with the higher principles, whereas Kama-rupa is the animal. It is the seat of everything animal.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  If you look at the diagram of the planet in the human principles which is given a few pages back, you will find you get exactly the explanation of the two vehicles.HPB diagram of the human principles
Mme. Blavatsky:  You can not expect me to give everything; something must be left to the intuition and to human intelligence. If I had written everything I would have had to make 25 volumes and it would not have been enough. I told you hundreds of times, stick to analogy here.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  If you look at page 153 {of volume 1 of The Secret Doctrine}, you get it. The diagram gives the key if you make that substitution, if you put it in its proper order.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I have remarked you must not number them. The number “one” is that principle which is predominant in man. Now, if you happen to have your fourth principle predominant, it will be the first.

 
They want to have everything put straight for them. They won’t shake their own brains.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
