Basics always help:

"Here you have our doctrine, which shows man a SEPTENARY during life; a quintile just after death, in Kamaloka; and a threefold Ego, Spirit-Soul, and consciousness in DEVACHAN.  This separation, first in "the Meadows of Hades," as Plutarch calls the Kama-loka, then in Devachan, was part and parcel of the performances during the sacred Mysteries, when the candidates for initiation enacted the whole drama of death, and the resurrection as a glorified SPIRIT, by which name we mean CONSCIOUSNESS."
