STANZAS FROM THE BOOK OF DZYAN
ANTHROPOGENESIS IN THE SECRET VOLUME.


						I.


1. THE LHA WHICH TURNS THE FOURTH IS SUBSERVIENT TO THE LHA OF THE SEVEN,
THEY WHO REVOLVE DRIVING THEIR CHARIOTS AROUND THEIR LORD, THE ONE EYE. HIS
BREATH GAVE LIFE TO THE SEVEN; IT GAVE LIFE TO THE FIRST. 

2. SAID THE EARTH:-"LORD OF THE SHINING FACE; MY HOUSE IS EMPTY . . . .
SEND THY SONS TO PEOPLE THIS WHEEL. THOU HAST SENT THY SEVEN SONS TO THE
LORD OF WISDOM. SEVEN TIMES DOTH HE SEE THEE NEARER TO HIMSELF, SEVEN TIMES
MORE DOTH HE FEEL THEE. THOU HAST FORBIDDEN THY SERVANTS, THE SMALL RINGS,
TO CATCH THY LIGHT AND HEAT, THY GREAT BOUNTY TO INTERCEPT ON ITS PASSAGE.
SEND NOW TO THY SERVANT THE SAME." 

3. SAID THE "LORD OF THE SHINING FACE":-"I SHALL SEND THEE A FIRE WHEN THE
WORK IS COMMENCED. RAISE THY VOICE TO OTHER LOKAS; APPLY TO THY FATHER, THE
LORD OF THE LOTUS, FOR HIS SONS . . . . THY PEOPLE SHALL BE UNDER THE RULE
OF THE FATHERS. THY MEN SHALL BE MORTALS. THE MEN OF THE LORD OF WISDOM, NOT
THE LUNAR SONS, ARE IMMORTAL. CEASE THY COMPLAINTS. THY SEVEN SKINS ARE YET
ON THEE . . . . THOU ART NOT READY. THY MEN ARE NOT READY." 

4. AFTER GREAT THROES SHE CAST OFF HER OLD THREE AND PUT ON HER NEW SEVEN
SKINS, AND STOOD IN HER FIRST ONE.

		     BEGINNINGS OF SENTIENT LIFE.

				-----

 (1) THE LHA, or Spirit of the Earth.       (2) Invocation of the Earth
		to the Sun.
(3) What the Sun answers.                             (4) Transformation of
							the Earth. 

-----

1. THE LHA (a) WHICH TURNS THE FOURTH (Globe, or our Earth) IS SERVANT TO
THE LHA(S) OF THE SEVEN (the planetary Spirits) (b), THEY WHO REVOLVE,
DRIVING THEIR CHARIOTS AROUND THEIR LORD, THE ONE EYE (Loka-Chakshub) OF OUR
WORLD. HIS BREATH GIVES LIFE TO THE SEVEN (gives light to the planets).
IT GAVE LIFE TO THE FIRST (c). "THEY ARE ALL DRAGONS OF WISDOM," adds the
Commentary (d). 

(a) Lha is the ancient word in trans-Himalayan regions for "Spirit," any
celestial or superhuman Being, and it covers the whole series of heavenly
hierarchies, from Archangel, or Dhyani, down to an angel of darkness, or
terrestrial Spirit. 


(b) This expression shows in plain language that the Spirit-Guardian of our
globe, which is the fourth in the chain, is subordinate to the chief Spirit
(or God) of the Seven Planetary Genii or Spirits. As already explained, the
ancients had, in their Kyriel of gods, seven chief Mystery-gods, whose
chief was, exoterically, the visible Sun, or the eighth, and, esoterically,
the second Logos, the Demiurge. The seven (who have now become the "Seven
Eyes of the Lord" in the Christian religion) were the regents of the seven
chief planets; but these were not -

* All the words and sentences placed in brackets in the Stanzas and
Commentaries are the writer's. In some places they may be incomplete and
even inadequate from the Hindu standpoint; but in the meaning attached to
them in Trans-Himalayan Esotericism they are correct. In every case the
writer takes any blame upon herself. Having never claimed personal
infallibility, that which is given on her own authority may leave much to
be desired, in the very abstruse cases where too deep metaphysics is
involved. The teaching is offered as it is understood; and as there are
seven keys of interpretation to every symbol and allegory, that which may
not fit a meaning, say from the psychological or astronomical aspect, will
be found quite correct from the physical or metaphysical.

		THE ACTION OF THE GREAT BREATH.

reckoned according to the enumeration devised later by people who had
forgotten, or who had an inadequate notion of, the real Mysteries, and
included neither the sun, the moon, nor the earth. The sun was the chief,
exoterically, of the twelve great gods, or zodiacal constellations; and,
esoterically, the Messiah, the Christos (the subject anointed by the Great
BREATH, or the ONE) surrounded by his twelve subordinate powers, also
subordinate, in turn, to each of the seven "Mystery-gods" of the planets. 

"The seven higher make the Seven Lhas create the world," states a
Commentary; which means that our Earth, leaving aside the rest, was created
or fashioned by terrestrial spirits, the "Regents" being simply the
supervisors. This is the first germ, the seed of that which grew later into
the Tree of Astrology and Astrolatry. The Higher ones were the
Kosmocratores, the fabricators of our solar system. This is borne out by
all the ancient Cosmogonies: that of Hermes, of the Chaldees, of the
Aryans, of the Egyptians, and even of the Jews. Heaven's belt, the signs of
the Zodiac (the Sacred animals), are as much the Bne' Alhim (Sons of the
Gods or the Elohim) as the Spirits of the Earth; but they are prior to
them. Soma and Sin, Isis and Diana, are all lunar gods or goddesses, called
the fathers and mothers of our Earth, which is subordinate to them. But
these, in their turn, are subordinate to their "Fathers" and "Mothers" -
the latter interchangeable and varying with each nation - the gods and
their planets, such as Jupiter, Saturn Bel, Brihaspati, etc. 

(c) "His breath gave life to the seven," refers as much to the sun, who
gives life to the Planets, as to the "High One," the Spiritual Sun, who
gives life to the whole Kosmos. The astronomical and astrological keys
opening the gate leading to the mysteries of Theogony can be found only in
the later glossaries, which accompany the Stanzas. 

In the apocalyptic Slokas of the Archaic Records, the language is as
symbolical, if less mythical, than in the Puranas. Without the help of the
later commentaries,compiled by generations of adepts, it would be
impossible to understand the meaning correctly. In the ancient Cosmogonies,
the visible and the invisible worlds are the double links of one and the
same chain. As the invisible Logos, with its seven hierarchies (represented
or personified each by its chief angel or rector), form one POWER, the
inner and the invisible; so, in the world of Forms, the Sun and the seven
chief Planets constitute the visible and active potency; the latter
"Hierarchy" being, so to speak, the visible and objective Logos of the
invisible and (except in the lowest grades) ever-subjective angels. 

Thus - to anticipate a little by way of illustration - every Race in its 

24

evolution is said to be born under the direct influence of one of the
Planets: Race the first receiving its breath of life from the Sun, as will
be seen later on; while the third humanity - those who fell into
generation, or from androgynes became separate entities, one male and the
other female - are said to be under the direct influence of Venus, "the
little sun in which the solar orb stores his light." 

The summation of the Stanzas in Book I. showed the genesis* of Gods and men
taking rise in, and from, one and the same Point, which is the One
Universal, Immutable, Eternal, and absolute UNITY. In its primary
manifested aspect we have seen it become: (1) in the sphere of objectivity
and Physics, Primordial Substance and Force (centripetal and centrifugal,
positive and negative, male and female, etc., etc.); (2) in the world of
Metaphysics, the SPIRIT OF THE UNIVERSE, or Cosmic Ideation, called by some
the LOGOS. 

This LOGOS is the apex of the Pythagorean triangle. When the triangle is
complete it becomes the Tetraktis, or the Triangle in the Square, and is
the dual symbol of the four-lettered Tetragrammaton in the manifested
Kosmos, and of its radical triple RAY in the unmanifested, or its noumenon. 

Put more metaphysically, the classification given here of Cosmic Ultimates,
is more one of convenience than of absolute philosophical accuracy. At the
commencement of a great Manvantara, Parabrahm manifests as Mulaprakriti and
then as the Logos. This Logos is equivalent to the "Unconscious Universal
Mind," etc., of Western Pantheists. It constitutes the Basis of the SUBJECT-
side of manifested Being, and is the source of all manifestations of
individual consciousness. Mulaprakriti or Primordial Cosmic Substance, is
the foundation of the OBJECT-side of things - the basis of all objective
evolution and Cosmogenesis. Force, then, does not emerge with Primordial
Substance from Parabrahmic Latency. It is the transformation into energy of
the supra-conscious thought of the Logos, infused, so to speak, into the
objectivation of the latter out of potential latency in the One Reality.
Hence spring the wondrous laws of matter: hence the "primal impress" so
vainly discussed by Bishop Temple. Force thus is not synchronous with the
first objectivation of Mulaprakriti. But as, apart from it, the latter is
absolutely and necessarily inert - a mere abstraction - it is unnecessary
to weave too fine a cobweb of subtleties as to the order of succession of 

 
------------------------------------------------

* According to Dr. A. Wilder's learned definition, Genesis, genesi" is not
generation, but "a coming out of the eternal into the Kosmos and Time": "a
coming from esse into exsistere," or "from BE-NESS into 'being' " - as a
Theosophist would say. 


25

 		MAN, THE THIRD LOGOS.

the Cosmic Ultimates. Force succeeds Mulaprakriti; but, minus Force,
Mulaprakriti is for all practical intents and purposes non-existent.* 

The "Heavenly Man" (Tetragrammaton) who is the Protogonos, Tikkoun, the
firstborn from the passive deity and the first manifestation of that
deity's shadow, is the universal form and idea, which engenders the
manifested Logos, Adam Kadmon, or the four-lettered symbol, in the Kabala,
of the Universe itself, also called the second Logos. The second springs
from the first and develops the third triangle (see the Sephirothal Tree);
from the last of which (the lower host of Angels) MEN are generated. It is
with this third aspect that we shall deal at present. 

The reader must bear in mind that there is a great difference between the
LOGOS and the Demiurgos, for one is Spirit and the other is Soul; or as Dr.
Wilder has it: "Dianoia and Logos are synonymous, Nous being superior and
closely in affinity with To a~gaqon, one being the superior apprehending,
the other the comprehending - one noetic and the other phrenic." 

Moreover, Man was regarded in several systems as the third Logos. The
esoteric meaning of the word Logos (speech or word, Verbum) is the
rendering in objective expression, as in a photograph, of the concealed
thought. The Logos is the mirror reflecting DIVINE MIND, and the Universe
is the mirror of the Logos, though the latter is the esse of that Universe.
As the Logos reflects all in the Universe of Pleroma, so man reflects in
himself all that he sees and finds in his Universe, the Earth. It is the
three Heads of the Kabala: "Unum intra alterum, et alterum super alterum"
(Zohar, Idra Suta, sec. VII). "Every Universe (world or planet) has its own
Logos," says the doctrine. The Sun was always called by the Egyptians "the
eye of Osiris," and was himself the Logos, the first-begotten, or light
made manifest to the world, "which is the Mind and divine intellect of the
Concealed." It is only by the sevenfold Ray of this light that we can
become cognizant of the Logos through the Demiurge, regarding the latter as
the creator of our planet and everything pertaining to it, and the former
as the guiding Force of that "Creator" - good and bad at the same time, the
origin of good and the origin of evil. This "Creator" is neither good nor
bad per se, but its differentiated aspects in nature make it assume one or
the other character. With the invisible and the unknown Universes
disseminated through space, none of the sun-gods had anything to do. The
idea is expressed very clearly in the "Books of Hermes," and in every
ancient folk lore. It is symbolised generally by the Dragon and the Serpent
- the Dragon of Good and the Serpent of Evil, represented on Earth by
