Isis Unveiled: chapter III (The mirror of the soul)

“While the miracles recorded in the Bible have become accepted facts with the Christians, to disbelieve which is regarded as infidelity, the narratives of wonders and prodigies found in the Atharva-Veda, either provoke their contempt or are viewed as evidences of diabolism.

And yet, in more than one respect, and notwithstanding the unwillingness of certain Sanskrit scholars, we can show the identity between the two.

Moreover, as the Vedas have now been proved by scholars to antedate the Jewish Bible by many ages, the inference is an easy one that if one of them has borrowed from the the other, the Hindu sacred books are not to be charged with plagiarism.

First of all, their cosmogony shows how erroneous has been the opinion prevalent among the civilized nations that Brahma was ever considered by the Hindus their chief or Supreme God.

Brahma is a secondary deity, and like Jehovah is “a mover of the waters.” He is the creating god, and has in his allegorical representations four heads, answering to the four cardinal points.

He is the demiurgos, the architect of the world.”

H. P. Blavatsky
