Who was the great King of the dazzling Face?
Who were the Lords of the Dark Face?
What “sin” did the Lords of the Dark Face commit?
What is the artificially made beast of the black magician?
What is meant by weakness of physical and mental organizations?
“And the ‘great King of the dazzling Face,’ the chief of all the Yellow-faced, was sad, seeing the sins of the Black-faced.
“He sent his air-vehicles (Viwan) to all his brother-chiefs (chiefs of other nations and tribes) with pious men within, saying: “Prepare. Arise ye men of the good law, and cross the land while (yet) dry.
“The Lords of the storm are now approaching. Their chariots are nearing the land. One night and two days only shall the Lords of the Dark Face (the Sorcerers) live on this patient land. She is doomed, and they have to descend with her. The nether Lords of the Fires (the Gnomes and fire elementals) are preparing their magic Agneyastra (fire-weapons worked by magic). But the Lords of the Dark Eye (“Evil Eye”) are stronger than they (the Elementals) and they are the slaves of the mighty ones. They are versed in Ashtar (Vidya, the highest magical knowledge). Come and use yours (i.e. your magic powers, in order to counteract those of the Sorcerers). Let every lord of the Dazzling Face (an adept of the White Magic) cause the Viwan of every lord of the Dark Face to come into hands (or possession), lest any (of the Sorcerers) should by its means escape from the waters, avoid the rod of the Four, (Karmic deities) and save his wicked” (followers or people).
“May every yellow face send sleep from himself (mesmerize?) to every black face. May even they (the Sorcerers) avoid paid and suffering. May every man true to the Solar Gods bind (paralyze) every man under the lunar gods, lest he should suffer or escape his destiny.
“And may every yellow face offer of his life-water (blood) to the speaking animal of a black face, lest he awaken his master (Some wonderful, artificially-made beast, similar in some way to Frankenstein’s creation, which spoke and warned his master of every approaching danger. The master was a “black magician,” the mechanical animal was informed by a djin, an Elemental, according to the accounts. The blood of a pure man alone could destroy him. Vide Part II.,xxvii, “Seven in Astronomy, Science and Magic.”)
‘The hour has struck, the black night is ready, etc……’Let their destiny be accomplished. We are the servants of the great Four (The four Karmic gods, called the Four Maharajahs in the Stanzas.) May the Kings of light return.’”
“The great King fell upon his dazzling Face and wept….
“When the Kings assembled the waters had already moved…..
“But) the nations had now crossed the dry lands. They were beyond the water mark. Their Kings reached them in their Viwans, and led them on to the lands of Fire and Metal (East and North).”
Still, in another passage, it is said
“…..Stars (meteors) showered on the lands of the black Faces; but they slept.
“The speaking beasts (the magic watchers) kept quiet.
“The nether lords waited for orders, but they came not, for their masters slept.
“The waters arose, and covered the valleys from one end of the Earth to the other. High lands remained, the bottom of the Earth (the land of the antipodes) remained dry. There dwelt those who escaped; the men of the yellow-faces and of the straight eye (the frank and sincere people).
“When the Lords of the Dark Faces awoke and bethought themselves of their Viwans in order to escape from the rising waters, they found them gone.
Then a passage shows some of the more powerful magicians of the “Dark Face” – who awoke earlier than the others – pursuing those who had “spoilt them” and who were in the rear-guard, for “the nations that were led away, were as thick as the stars of the milky way,” says a more modern Commentary, written in Sanskrit only.
“Like as a dragon-snake uncoils slowly its body, so the Sons of men, led on by the Sons of Wisdom, opened their folds, and spreading out, expanded like a running stream of sweet waters….many of the faint hearted among them perished on their way. But most were saved.”
Yet, the pursuers, “whose heads and chests soared high above the water,” chased them “for three lunar terms” until finally reached by the rising waves, they perished to the last man, the soil sinking under their feet and the earth engulfing whose who had desecrated her.
Secret Doctrine, Book 2, page 427-428
And From Isis Unveiled Volume 1, Page 593
those who were instructed by the “Sons of God,” of the island, and who were initiated in the divine doctrine of pure revelation, and others who inhabited the lost Atlantis — if such must be its name — and who, being of another race, were born with a sight which embraced all hidden things, and was independent of both distance and material obstacle. In short, they were the fourth race of men mentioned in the Popol-Vuh, whose sight was unlimited and who knew all things at once. They were, perhaps, what we would now term “natural-born mediums,” who neither struggled nor suffered to obtain their knowledge, nor did they acquire it at the price of any sacrifice. Therefore, while the former walked in the path of their divine instructors, and acquiring their knowledge by degrees, learned at the same time to discern the evil from the good, the born adepts of the Atlantis blindly followed the insinuations of the great and invisible “Dragon,” the King Thevetat (the
Serpent of Genesis?). Thevetat had neither learned nor acquired knowledge, but, to borrow an expression of Dr. Wilder in relation to the tempting Serpent, he was “a sort of Socrates who knew without being initiated.” Thus, under the evil insinuations of their demon, Thevetat, the Atlantis-race became a nation of wicked magicians. In consequence of this, war was declared, the story of which would be too long to narrate; its substance may be found in the disfigured allegories of the race of Cain, the giants, and that of Noah and his righteous family. The conflict came to an end by the submersion of the Atlantis; which finds its imitation in the stories of the Babylonian and Mosaic flood: The giants and magicians “. . . and all flesh died . . . and every man.” All except Xisuthrus and Noah, who are substantially identical with the great Father of the Thlinkithians in the Popol-Vuh, or the sacred book of the Guatemaleans, which also tells of his escaping in a large
boat, like the Hindu Noah — Vaiswasvata.
If we believe the tradition at all, we have to credit the further story that from the intermarrying of the progeny of the hierophants of the island and the descendants of the Atlantian Noah, sprang up a mixed race of righteous and wicked. On the one side the world had its Enochs, Moseses, Gautama-Buddhas, its numerous “Saviours,” and great hierophants; on the other hand, its “natural magicians” who, through lack of the restraining power of proper spiritual enlightenment, and because of weakness of physical and mental organizations, unintentionally perverted their gifts to evil purposes. Moses had no word of rebuke for those adepts in prophecy and other powers who had been instructed in the colleges of esoteric wisdom* mentioned in the Bible. His denunciations were reserved for such as either wittingly or otherwise debased the powers inherited from their Atlantian ancestors to the service of evil spirits, to the injury of humanity. His wrath was kindled against
the spirit of Ob, not that of OD.
* 2 Kings, xxii. 14; 2 Chronicles, xxxiv. 22.
“Whatever there may be in these traditions, and whatever may have been the place where a civilization more ancient than that of Rome, of Greece, of Egypt, and of India was developed, it is certain that this civilization did exist, and that it is highly important for science to recover its traces, however feeble and fugitive they may be” (pp. 13-15).
This last tradition, translated by Louis Jacolliot from the Sanscrit manuscripts, corroborates the one we have given from the “Records of the Secret Doctrine.” The war mentioned between the yellow and the black men, relates to a struggle between the “sons of God” and the “sons of giants,” or the inhabitants and magicians of the Atlantis.

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

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
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.
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
