		RE: Origin of Evil

May we also consider these ideas:



“God did not fall, - the spirit; nor did man as the human man; but the soul,
being a free agent, did so, causing the spirit to be limited, and entailing
pain and anguish upon the human man. 

Man with the Divine manifest in him was to know only the good, or wisdom;
but, not content, he must eat of the tree of the KNOWLEDGE of good and evil,
or the misapplication of the good, and fell into ignorance. There can be no
greater evil than losing the wisdom of a God for the ignorance of a man.
Herein consists the only evil of the fall after the descent into matter.”
W Q  J Art  II  p. 451

 	Extracts from:	ORIGIN OF EVIL  --  HPB	

P. 124	 The problem of the origin of evil can be philosophically
approached… [by] ancient wisdom… It attributes the birth of Kosmos and the
evolution of life to the breaking asunder of primordial, manifested UNITY,
into plurality, or the great illusion of form. HOMOGENEITY having
transformed itself into Heterogeneity, contrasts have naturally been
created; hence sprang what we call EVIL  [P. 134   …the Indian formula,
which is a Secret Doctrine teaching.] [ P. 130   This explanation of the
problem and origin of evil being…of an entirely metaphysical character, has
nothing to do with physical laws…] 

P. 125	The Eastern pantheist, whose philosophy teaches him to discriminate
between Being or ESSE …He knows he can put an end to form alone, not to
being--and that only on this plane of terrestrial illusion. 

P. 125	…by killing out in himself Tanha (the unsatisfied desire for
existence, or the "will to live")--he will thus gradually escape the curse
of rebirth and conditioned existence. 

P. 125	…believing but in One Reality, which is eternal Be-ness, the
"causeless CAUSE" from which he has exiled himself into a world of forms, he
regards the temporary and progressing manifestations of it in the state of
Maya (change or illusion), as the greatest evil…but…as a process in nature,
as unavoidable… It is the only means by which he can pass from limited and
conditioned lives of sorrow into eternal life, or into that absolute
"Be-ness," which is so graphically expressed in the Sanskrit word SAT. 

P. 125	   The idea that matter and its Protean manifestations are the
source and origin of universal evil and sorrow is a very old one, 

P. 125	   Gautama Buddha …the Sage and Philosopher, who sacrificed himself
for Humanity by living for it, in order to save it, [in living, not in
running away from life]  by teaching men to see in the sensuous existence of
matter misery alone…his efforts were to release mankind from too strong an
attachment to life, which is the chief cause of Selfishness--hence the
creator of mutual pain and suffering. 

P. 126	   His doctrine shows evil immanent, not in matter, which is
eternal, but in the illusions created by it: through the changes and
transformations of matter generating life--because these changes are
conditioned and such life is ephemeral.  	[ WHY ?]

P. 126	…if we would discern good from evil, light from darkness, and
appreciate the former, we can do so only through the contrasts between the

P. 126	   Buddha's philosophy points [to]…its esotericism, the hidden soul
of it, draws the veil aside and reveals to the Arhat all the glories of LIFE
ETERNAL in all the Homogeneousness of Consciousness and Being…a fact to the
Sage and esoteric Pantheist. 

P. 126	…the root idea that evil is born and generated by the ever
increasing complications of the homogeneous material, which enters into form
and differentiates more and more as that form becomes physically more
perfect, has an esoteric side to it …

P. 126	   Its dead-letter aspect, however, became the subject of
speculation with every ancient thinking nation…in India the primitive
thought…has been disfigured by Sectarianism, and has led to the ritualistic,
purely dogmatic observances of the Hatha Yogis, in contradistinction to the
philosophical Vedantic Raja Yoga. 

P. 127	  It thus follows that the deeply religious Pantheism of the Hindu
and Buddhist philosopher…[lead him to consider that]…pain as well as sorrow
are illusions, due to attachment to this life, and ignorance. Therefore he
strives after eternal, changeless life, and absolute consciousness in the
state of Nirvana

P. 127	   For the [Hindu]… philosopher there is but one real life, Nirvanic
bliss, which is a state differing in kind, not in degree only, from that of
any of the planes of consciousness in the manifested universe. [He]…in his
spiritual aspirations [ignores]…even the integral homogeneous unit…He knows
of, and believes in only the direct cause of that unit, eternal and ever
living, because the ONE uncreated, or rather not evoluted. 

P. 127	   Hence all his efforts are directed toward the speediest reunion
possible with, and return to his pre-primordial condition, after his
pilgrimage through this illusive series of visionary lives, with their
unreal phantasmagoria of sensuous perceptions. 

P. 128	…the Eastern Pantheist…submits to the inevitable, and tries to blot
out from his path in life as many "descents into rebirth" as he can, by
avoiding the creation of new Karmic causes. [JAINS] The Buddhist philosopher
knows that the duration of the series of lives of every human being--unless
he reaches Nirvana "artificially" ("takes the kingdom of God by violence
")…is given, allegorically in the forty-nine days passed by Gautama the
Buddha under the Bo-tree…And the Hindu sage is aware, in his turn, that he
has to light the first, and extinguish the forty-ninth fire before he
reaches his final deliverance. Knowing this, both sage and philosopher wait
patiently for the natural hour of deliverance

P. 128 Fn	This is an esoteric tenet…the Theosophist…may compute the 7
by 7 of the forty-nine "days" and the forty-nine "fires," and understand
that the allegory refers esoterically to the seven human consecutive
root-races with their seven subdivisions. Every monad is born in the first
and obtains deliverance in the last seventh race. Only a "Buddha" is shown
reaching it during the course of one life. 

P. 128	   The seeds of evil and sorrow were indeed the earliest result and
consequence of the heterogeneity of the manifested universe. Still they are
but an illusion produced by the law of contrasts, which, as described, is a
fundamental law in nature. Neither good nor evil would exist were it not for
the light they mutually throw on each other. 

P. 129	   Being, under whatever form, having been observed from the World's
creation to offer these contrasts, and evil predominating in the universe
owing to Ego-ship or selfishness, the rich Oriental metaphor has pointed to
existence as expiating the mistake of nature; and the human soul (psuche),
was henceforth regarded as the scapegoat and victim of unconscious


P. 129	   Ignorance alone is the willing martyr, but knowledge is the
master, of natural Pessimism. 

 P. 129	   If, instead of that, man proceeding on his life-journey
looked…but within himself and centered his point of observation on the inner
man, he would soon escape from the coils of the great serpent of illusion.
>From the cradle to the grave, his life would then become supportable and
worth living, even in its worst phases. 

P. 129	   Pessimism--that chronic suspicion of lurking evil everywhere…is a
boon to the spiritual, inasmuch as it makes the latter turn into the right
path, and brings him to the discovery of another as fundamental a truth;
namely, that all in this world is only preparatory because transitory. 

P. 129	   It is like a chink…through which breaks in a ray of light from
the eternal…illuminating the inner senses, whispers to the prisoner…of the
origin and the dual mystery of our being…it is a…proof of the presence in
man of THAT which knows, --that there is another and a better life, once
that the curse of earth-lives is lived through. 

P. 130	  Eastern wisdom teaches that SPIRIT HAS TO PASS THROUGH THE ORDEAL
OF INCARNATION AND LIFE, and be baptised with matter before it can reach
experience and knowledge. After which only it receives the [second] baptism
of soul, or self-consciousness, and may return to its original condition of
a god, plus experience, ending with omniscience. 

P 130	   In other words, it can return to the original state of the
homogeneity of primordial essence only through the addition of the fruitage
of Karma, which alone is able to create an absolute conscious deity, removed
but one degree from the absolute ALL. 

P. 130	…evil must have existed before Adam and Eve, who, therefore, are
innocent of the slander of the original sin. For, had there been no evil or
sin before them, there could exist neither tempting Serpent nor a Tree of
Knowledge of good and evil in Eden. 

P. 130	   Too much knowledge about things of matter is thus rightly shown
an evil. 

P. 134	…we read in the "Scientific Letters" by an anonymous Russian author
and critic: 

“In the evolution of isolated individuals, in the evolution of the organic
world, in that of the Universe, as in the growth and development of our
planet--in short wherever any of the processes of progressive complexity
take place, there we find, apart from the transition from unity to
plurality, and homogeneity to heterogeneity, a converse transformation--the
transition front plurality to unity, from the heterogeneous to the
homogeneous. . . . “

P. 134	   In this case material nature repeats the law that acts in the
evolution of the psychic and the spiritual: both descend but to reascend and
merge at the starting-point. The homogeneous formative mass or element
differentiated in its parts, is gradually transformed into the
heterogeneous; then, merging those parts into a harmonious whole, it
recommences a converse process, or reinvolution, and returns as gradually
into its primitive or primordial state. 

P. 135-6    Modern Society is permeated with an increasing cynicism and
honeycombed with disgust of life. This is the result of an utter ignorance
of the operations of Karma and the nature of Soul evolution...Once the basis
of the Great Law is grasped--and what philosophy can furnish better means
for such a grasp and final solution, than the esoteric doctrine of the great
Indian Sages-- 

P.136	   The reasonableness of Conscious Existence can be proved only by
the study of the primeval--now esoteric--philosophy. And it says "there is
neither death nor life, for both are illusions; being (or BENESS) is the
only reality." … "Life is Death," said Claude Bernard. The organism lives
because its parts are ever dying. The Survival Of The Fittest is surely
based on this truism. The life of the superior whole requires the death of
the inferior, the death of the parts depending on and being subservient to
it. And, as life is death, so death is life, and the whole great cycle of
lives form but ONE EXISTENCE--the worst day of which is on our planet. 

He who KNOWS will make the best of it. For there is a dawn for every being,
when once freed from illusion and ignorance by Knowledge; and he will at
last proclaim in truth and all Consciousness to Mahamaya:

Q	(2) I met an F.T.S. the other day who believes he has arrived at
"Saintship" and cannot therefore err. He cannot bear the slightest
contradiction , believing that he has arrived at such a state of
"enlightenment" that he is infallible, whereas we less gifted mortals feel
that he often makes grave mistakes. Of course this assumption is untenable
in this case, but are sainthood and consequent infallibility likely to
result from the humdrum every-day life of an ordinary nineteenth century

ANSWER – 	For the Deity there is no fall. He can not fall. In the
so-called descent into matter, He must manifest through something. Never
does the Ineffable stand unveiled before mortal man. When the All Wise
deemed it good to manifest Himself as individualities, He did so through the

After creating the human man with the soul that all things possess, "He
breathed into his nostrils and man became a living soul," or the Deity
manifested Himself through the soul in the man. 

Nothing below man is immortal. 

Man is not immortal; his soul is not immortal; but the breath of God, which
is God's life or God himself, is forever. 

Man was to have lived as the angels, "for they also were made"; but,
although by the grosser elements of matter or nature, by its lusts and
desires, its seductive beauties and deceptive pleasures, realized most fully
through the senses of the human body, the soul was drawn down instead of
upward, into ignorance of the true instead of toward the wisdom of God,
holding and binding thus the spirit in the meshes of the grossest part of
nature, and so fell.”


		"IT'S THE CAT!"		by H. P. B

(Dedicated to those Members of the T.S. whom the cap may fit.)

     Let ignominy brand
	thy hated name;
     Let modest matrons at thy mention start;
     And blushing virgins when they read our annals
     Skip o'er the guilty page that holds thy legend,
     And blots the noble work . . .

     An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie;
        for an excuse is a lie guarded.

		TRUTH  and  LIES

THE woman gave me of the tree, and I did eat," said the first man, the first
sneak and coward, thus throwing his own share of the blame upon his helpless
mate. This may have been "worse than a lie" according to Pope, yet, in
truth--it was not one. LIE was not born with the first man or woman either.
The Lie is the product of later civilization, the legitimate child of
SELFISHNESS--ready to sacrifice to itself the whole of mankind--and of
HYPOCRISY, often born of fear. 

The original sin for which, agreeably to the orthodox Sunday School
teaching, the whole world was cursed, drowned, and went unforgiven till the
year 1 A.D.--is not the greatest sin. The descendants of Adam improving upon
their grandsire's transgression, invented lie and added to it excuse and

"It's the cat" is a saying that may have originated with the antediluvians,
whenever an actual sin had been committed and a scapegoat was needed. But it
required the post-diluvians to father on the "cat" even that which had never
been committed at all; that which was an invention of the fertile brain of
the slanderers, who never hesitate to lie most outrageously whenever they
feel inclined to ventilate a grudge against a brother or neighbour. Fruits
of atonement, Children of redemption, we lie and sin the more readily for
that. No "shame on us," but: 

     Hail to the
	policy that first began
     To temper with the heart to hide its

is the world's motto. Is not the World one gigantic lie? Is there anything
under the sun that offers such rich variety and almost countless degrees and
shades as lying does? Lying is the policy of our century, from Society
lying, as a necessity imposed upon us by culture and good breeding, up to
individual lying, i.e., uttering a good, square unmitigated lie, in the
shape of false witness, or as the Russian proverb has it:--"shifting off a
sin from a diseased on to a healthy head." 

Oh lie--legion is thy name! Fibs and lies are now the cryptogamic
excrescences on the soil of our moral and daily lives as toadstools are
those of forest swamps, and their respective orders are as large. Both are
fungi; plants which delight in shadowy nooks, and form mildew, mold and smut
on both the soil of moral life and that of physical nature. Oh, for that
righteous tongue: 

That will not sell its honesty, or tell a lie!

As said, there are fibs and fibs, conscious and unconscious, hoaxes and
impostures, deceptions and calumnies--the latter often followed by moral and
physical ruin--mild perversions of truth or evasion, and deliberate
duplicity. But there are also catch-penny lies, in the shape of newspaper
chaff, and innocent misrepresentations, due simply to ignorance. To the
latter order belong most of the newspaper statements regarding the
Theosophical Society, and its official scapegoat--H. P. Blavatsky. 

It has become a matter of frequent occurrence of late, to find in serious
articles upon scientific subjects the name of "ESOTERIC BUDDHISM" mentioned,
and oftener still that of "Mme. Blavatsky" taken in vain. The latter
circumstance is really very, very considerate, and--in one sense at any
rate--overwhelmingly flattering! 

To find one's humble name collated with those of Sir Monier-Williams  and
Professor Bastian is an honour, indeed. When, for instance, the great Oxford
lecturer chooses to make a few big and bold slashes into fact and truth--no
doubt to please his pious audience--and says that Buddhism has never had any
occult or esoteric system of doctrine which it withheld from the
multitudes,--what happens? 

Forthwith, "Esoteric Buddhism" receives, metaphorically speaking, a black
eye; the Theosophical Society, a kick or two; and finally, the gates of the
journalistic poultry-yard being flung wide open, a vehement sortie against
"Blavatsky" & Co. is effected by a flock of irritated geese sallying
therefrom to hiss and peck at the theosophical heels. ...

Very well. And yet Professor Bastian, all the "correspondents" to the
contrary notwithstanding, lays himself widely open to a most damaging
criticism from the standpoint of fact and truth. Furthermore, we doubt
whether Professor Bastian, a learned ethnologist, would ever refer to Hindu
Yogis as Fakirs--the latter appellation being strictly limited and belonging
only to Mussulman devotees. We doubt, still more, whether Professor Bastian,
an accurate German, would deny the frequent occurrence of the phenomenon
that Yogis and these same "Fakirs," remain in deep, death-like trance for
days, and sometimes for weeks; or even that the former have been
occasionally buried for forty consecutive days, and recalled to life again
at the end of that period, as witnessed by Sir Claude Wade and others. 

But all this is too ancient and too well authenticated history, to need
substantiation. When "correspondents" will have learned the meaning, as well
as the spelling of the term dhyana--which the said "correspondent" writes
diana--we may talk with them of Yogis and Fakirs, pointing out to them the
great difference between the two. Meanwhile, we may kindly leave them to
their own hazy ideas: they are the "Innocents Abroad" in the realm of the
far Orient, the blind led by the blind, and theosophical charity extends
even to critics and hereditary foes. 

But there are certain other things which we cannot leave uncontradicted.
While week after week, and day after day, the "Innocents" lost in the
theosophical labyrinths, publish their own harmless fibs--"slight expansions
of truth" somebody called them--they also often supplement them by the
wicked and malicious falsehoods of casual correspondents--ex-members of the
T.S. and their friends generally. These falsehoods generated in, and evolved
the depths of the inner consciousness of our relentless enemies, cannot be
so easily disregarded. Although, since they hang like Mahommed's coffin in
the emptiness of rootless space, and so are a denial in themselves, yet they
are so maliciously interspersed with hideous lies built on popular and
already strongly-rooted prejudices that, if left uncontradicted, they would
work the most terrible mischief. 


Lies are ever more readily accepted than truth, and are given up with more
difficulty. They darken the horizons of theosophical centres, and prevent
unprejudiced people from learning the exact truth about theosophy and its
herald, the Theosophical Society. How terribly malicious and revengeful some
of these enemies are, is evidenced by the fact that certain of them do not
hesitate to perform a moral hari-kari upon themselves; to slay their own
reputations for truthfulness for the pleasure of hitting hard--or trying, at
all events, to hit--those whom they hate. 

Why this hatred? Simply because a calumny, a wicked, groundless slander is
often forgiven, and even forgotten; a truth told--never! Prevented from
disproving that truth, for good reasons, their hatred is kindled--for we
hate only what we fear. Thus they will invent a lie, cunningly grafting it
on some utterly false, but nevertheless popular accusation, and raise anew
the cry, "It's the cat, the ca-a-t, the ca-a-t!" 
Success in such a policy depends, you see, on temperament and--impudence. We
have a friend, who will never go to the trouble of persuading anyone to
believe him on his "aye" or his "nay." But, whenever he remarks that his
words are doubted, he will say, in the quietest and most innocent way
possible, "You know well I am too impudent to lie!" 

There is a great psychological truth hidden under this seeming paradox.
Impudence often originates from two entirely opposite feelings: fearlessness
and cowardice. A brave man will never lie; a coward lies to cover the fact
of his being one, and a liar into the bargain. Such a character will never
confess himself at fault no more than a vain man will; hence, whatever
mischance happens to either, they will always try to lay it at the door of
somebody else. 

	It requires a great nobility of character, or a firm sense of one's
duty, to confess one's mistakes and faults. Therefore, a scapegoat is
generally chosen, upon whose head the sins of the guilty are placed by the
transgressors. This scapegoat becomes gradually "the cat." 

Now the Theosophical Society has its own special, so to speak, its "family
cat," on which are heaped all the past, present and future iniquities of its
Fellows. Whether an F.T.S. quarrels with his mother-in-law, lets his hair
grow, forgets to pay his debts, or falls off from grace and theosophical
association, owing to personal or family reasons, wounded vanity, or what
not: presto comes the cry--whether in Europe, Asia, America or
elsewhere--It's the cat! Look at this F.T.S.; he is writhing in the pangs of
balked ambition. His desire to reign supreme over his fellow members is
frustrated; and finding himself disappointed--it is on the "cat" that he is
now venting his wrath. "The grapes are sour," he declares, because "the cat"
would not cut them for him, nor would she mew in tune to his fiddle. Hence,
the Vine has "worn itself too thin.


" Behold that other "star" of Theosophy, smarting under another kind of
grievance--unnamed, because unnamable. Hatred--"till one be lost for
ever"--rages in this brotherly heart. Pouncing like a bird of prey upon its
chosen victim--which it would carry far, far up into the clouds to kill it
with the more certainty when it lets it drop--the would-be avenger of his
own imaginary wrongs remains utterly blind to the fact, that by raising his
chosen victim so high he only elevates it the more above all men. You cannot
kill that which you hate, O blind hater, whatever the height you dash it
down from; the "cat" has nine lives, good friend, and will ever fall on to
its feet. 


There are a few articles of belief among the best theosophists, the bare
mention of which produces upon certain persons and classes of society the
effect of a red rag on an infuriated bull. One of these is our belief--very
harmless and innocent per se--in the existence of very wise and holy
personages, whom some call their MASTERS, while others refer to them as

Now, these may or may not actually exist--(we say they do); they may or may
not be as wise, or possess altogether the wonderful powers ascribed to, and
claimed for them. All this is a question of personal knowledge--or, in some
cases, faith. Yet, there are the 350,000,000 of India alone who believe
since time immemorial in their great Yogis and Mahatmas, and who feel as
certain of their existence in every age, from countless centuries back down
to the present day, as they feel sure of their own lives. Are they to be
treated for this as superstitious, self-deceived fools? Are they more
entitled to this epithet than the Christians of every church who believe
respectively in past and present Apostles, in Saints, Sages, Patriarchs and

Let that be as it will; the reader must realize that the present writer
entertains no desire to force such a belief on any one unwilling to accept
it, let him be a layman or a theosophist. The attempt was foolishly made a
few years back in all truth and sincerity, and--it has failed. 

More than this, the revered names were, from the first, so desecrated by
friend and foe, that the once almost irresistible desire to bring the actual
truth home to some who needed living ideals the most, has gradually weakened
since then. It is now replaced by a passionate regret for having ever
exhumed them from the twilight of legendary lore, into that of broad

 The wise warning:

     Give not that which is holy to the dogs,
     Neither cast ye your pearls before swine—

is now impressed in letters of fire on the heart of those guilty of having
made of the "Masters" public property. Thus the wisdom of the Hindo-Buddhist
allegorical teaching which says, "There can be no Mahatmas, no Arhats,
during the Kali yuga," is vindicated. That which is not believed in, does
not exist. Arhats and Mahatmas having been declared by the majority of
Western people as non-existent, as a fabrication--do not exist for the


"The Great Pan is dead!" wailed the mysterious voice over the Ionian Sea,
and forthwith plunged Tiberius and the pagan world into despair. The nascent
Nazarenes rejoiced and attributed that death to the new "God." Fools, both,
who little suspected that Pan--the "All Nature"--could not die. That that
which had died was only their fiction, the horned monster with the legs of a
goat, the "god" of shepherds and of priests who lived upon the popular
superstition, and made profit of the PAN of their own making. TRUTH can
never die. 

We greatly rejoice in thinking that the "Mahatmas" of those who sought to
build their own ephemeral reputation upon them and tried to stick them as a
peacock's feather in their hats--are also dead. The "adepts" of wild
hallucinations, and too wide-awake, ambitious purposes; the Hindu sages
1,000 years old; the "mysterious strangers," and the tutti quanti
transformed into convenient pegs whereon to hang--one, "orders" inspired by
his own nauseous vices; another, his own selfish purposes; a third, a
mocking image from the astral light--are now as dead as the "god Pan," or
the proverbial door-nail. They have vanished into thin air as all unclean
"hoaxes" must. 

Those who invented the "Mahatmas" 1,000 years old, seeing the hoax will not
pay, may well say they "have recovered from the fascination and taken their
proper stand." And these are welcome and sure "to come out and turn upon all
their dupes the vials of their sarcasm," though it will never be the last
act of their "life's drama." For the true, the genuine "Masters," whose real
names have, fortunately, never been given out, cannot be created and killed
at the beck and call of the sweet will of any "opportunist," whether inside
or outside of the T.S. It is only the Pans of the modern nymphs and the
Luperci, the greedy priests of the Arcadian god, who are, let us hope--dead
and buried. 

This cry, "it is the cat!" will end by making the Theosophical Society's
"scapegoat" quite proud. It has already ceased to worry the victim, and now
it is even becoming welcome and is certainly a very hopeful sign for the
cause. Censure is hard when deserved; whenever unmerited it only shows that
there is in the persecuted party something more than in the persecutors. It
is the number of enemies and the degree of their fierceness, that generally
decide on the merits and value of those they would brush off the face of the
earth if they could. And, therefore, we close with this quotation from old
Censure, says an ingenious author, is the tax a man pays to the public for
being eminent. It is a folly for an eminent man to think of escaping it, and
a weakness to be affected by it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity,
and, indeed, of every age in the world, have passed through this fiery
persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a
kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an
essential part of a Roman triumph.
Dear, kind enemies of the "Tartarian termagant" [HPB] how hard you do work

Every person has to do this renounce voluntarily. We can only spread the

If we enforce any ideas it will became another religion or dogma.
