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. Kingsland:  Are the seven sacred planets, the planets which correspond to our Earth, in the above-named seven chains?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  No, I don’t think so. Really, I do not know. There are very few things that I know, really.

 
Mr. Hall:  What is the meaning in the fable of Jason going to fetch the Golden Fleece, and his having to sow the Dragon’s teeth?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  What does he mean?

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  You know, the fable of Jason and the Argonauts. One of the labors he has to undertake is to sow Dragon’s teeth. First of all he as to plow the ground with fiery bulls; then, having plowed the ground, he sows the Dragon’s teeth from which grow a crop of armed men.

 
Mr. Mead:  Cadmus does the same.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  Hall wants to know what the interpretation is.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Exercise your own imagination. You know what a “Dragon” is; I told you just now.

 
Mr. Hall:  It was in connection with that, that I asked the question.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I don’t know. I could not tell you.

 
Mr. Hall:  Is it a symbol of initiation?

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I have plugged my fountain. It may be.

 
Mr. Mead:  The armed men that spring up from the teeth Cadmus sows all fall to fighting one another.

 
Mr. Hall:  That is only because he tricks them.

 
Mr. Mead:  They straight away fall to work to fight one another.

 
Mr. B. Keightley:  He throws an enchanted helmet among them.

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  I have been on that spot (Colchis, the modern Black Sea coast of Georgia), and if you want an interpretation of it, there are again seven legends, each relating to one of the keys.

 
Mr. Mead:  Simon gave one in the –

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  Take the alchemical, if you please, in connection with the expedition of the Argonauts. All alchemy is there, if you could only understand it; the philosopher’s stone and everything is in that expedition of the Argonauts, there in the Golden Fleece.

 
Mr. Hall:  I wish I could understand why Jason deserts the dear {Madea?}  (An example of the dangers inherent in the stenographer’s report. The person taking it down heard “the deer” but obviously “Medea” was meant.)

 
Mme. Blavatsky:  If we begin about these allegories, we will never end.

 
The proceedings here closed.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
