stanza 6, slokas 5-6

Stanza VI, Slokas 5-6
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.
6. The older wheels rotated downwards and upwards….The mother’s spawn filled the whole. There were battles fought between the Creators and the Destroyers, and battles fought for space; the seed appearing and re-appearing continuously.


“Mr. B. Keightley:  Question 15.  “As soon as a nucleus of primordial substance in the Laya state is informed by the freed principles of a just deceased sidereal body, it becomes a comet, then a sun, then a world.”  Is the term “sidereal body” used in a general sense, as applying to all bodies in cosmos, or technically, to distinguish it from a planetary body?

Mme. Blavatsky:  I use the term “sidereal body” in a general sense, as applying to bodies in cosmos in general. I do not give it any technical or special signification.

Mr. B. Keightley:  Then page 205 you have a very important note about the stages in the evolution of the cosmic bodies (Reads from The Secret Doctrine). Question 16, page 205, note. In the order of evolution of globes with respect to their material transformation, does the Laya state correspond to (1); the cometary to (4); the solar to (5)? If so, to what do (2) and (6) correspond?

Mme. Blavatsky:  Now, look here. You just answer me a question frankly and sincerely, as I would to a mother-in-law. Do you ask me these things because it is so obscurely put in The Secret Doctrine, or is it that you want to pump me out?

Mr. B. Keightley:  It is for this reason, to make quite certain that we get a right basis of correspondence and analogies to go upon. Because if we get that wrong, we shall go making mistakes all through.

Mme. Blavatsky:  You corroborate this statement, Mr. President?

Mr. Kingsland:  I think so.

Mr. B. Keightley:  If we once get a wrong idea, we continue to go wrong.

Mme. Blavatsky:  It seems to me you want to pump me out.

Mr. Old:  You don’t suspect us of wanting to know anything, do you?

Mme. Blavatsky:  Yes! I do. Well, the Laya state corresponds to the atomic or ethereal, and the solar to germinal and the fiery.

Mr. B. Keightley:  That being so, what do the second and the sixth and seventh, that is to say, the aeriform and the radiant or gaseous – well, that first.

Mme. Blavatsky:  The aeriform or gaseous transformation does not write a distinct stage in the cosmic evolution; but, rather, a link connecting the homogeneous with the nebulae or curd-like stage, a correlation of one into the other.

Mr. Mead:  That is what you call matter in a critical state.

Mme. Blavatsky:  Yes, sir. The fourfold vapor represents the stages through which the Earth has past {passed} to reach its present condition. The earth is materialized vapor, as ice is materialized steam.

The seventh or depending stage describes the stage the Earth will reach at the end of the Seventh Round. Then men will depend on no other sustenance than their own divine natures. There will be no need of food or drink; they will have no more clubs or lawn tennis, or anything.

The principles of the Earth will have almost entirely left her physical body, save the upper triad, just as this Moon had done at the close of the lunar Manvantara; and its principles will be ready to shoot, each in its turn, on to a new Laya centre to form a new globe, which will {be} the Earth’s Septenary Only Begotten Son.

Do you want to know anything more? You are the biggest pumpers I have seen in my life. My notes are at an end, and I open my brains to you, and you may ask what you like.”

H. P. Blavatsky
