Notes on Papers I, II, III
Page 436 (Page 530) Students in the west have little or no idea of the forces that lie latent in Sound, the Ãkashic vibrations that may be set up by those who understand how to pronounce certain words. The Om, or the “Om mani padme hum” are in spiritual affinity with cosmic forces, but without a knowledge of the natural arrangement, or of the order in which the syllables stand, very little can be achieved. “Om” is, of course, Aum, that may be pronounced as two, three or seven syllables, setting up different vibrations.
Now, letters, as vocal sounds, cannot fail to correspond with musical notes, and therefore with numbers and colours; hence also with forces and Tattvas. He who remembers the Universe is built up from the Tattvas will readily understand something of the power that may be exercised by vocal sounds. Every letter in the alphabet, whether divided into three, four, or seven septenaries, or forty-nine letters, has its own colour, or shade of colour. He who has learnt the colours of the alphabetical letters, and the corresponding numbers of the seven and the forty-nine colours and shades on the scale of planes and forces, and knows their respective order in the seven planes, will easily master the art of bringing them into affinity or interplay. But here a difficulty arises. The Senzar and Sanskrit alphabets, and other Occult tongues, besides other potencies, have a number, colour, and distinct syllable for every letter, and so had also the old Mosaic Hebrew. But how many students know any of these tongues? When the time comes, therefore, it must suffice to teach the students the numbers and colours attached to the Latin letters only (N.B. as pronounced in Latin, not in Anglo-Saxon, Scotch, or Irish). This, however, would be at present premature.
A Mantra Operative (Page 531) The colour and number of not only the planets but also the zodiacal constellations corresponding to every letter of the alphabet, are necessary to make any special syllable, and even letter, operative. [See The Voice of the Silence. p. viii.] therefore if a student would make Buddhi operative, for instance, he would have to intone the first words of the Mantra on the note mi. But he would have still further to accentuate the mi, and produce mentally the yellow colour corresponding to this sound and note, on every letter M in “Om mani padme hum”; this, not because the note bears the same name in the vernacular, Sanskrit, or even the Senzar, for it does not—but because the letter M follows the first letter, and is in this sacred formula also the seventh and the fourth. As Buddhi it is second; as Buddhi-Manas it is the second and third combined.
H.P. B. PAGE 439
[The following notes were contributed by students and approved by H.P.B]
The Pythagorean Four, or Tetraktys, was the symbol of the Kosmos, as containing within itself, the point, the line, the superficies, the solid; in other words, the essentials of all forms. Its mystical representation is the point within the triangle. The Decad or perfect number is contained in the Four; thus, 1+2+3+4=10.
The difficult passage: “Bear in mind . . . . a mystery below truly, ‡ [See Page 444] may become a little more clear to the student if slightly amplified.” (Page 532) The “primordial Triangle” is the Second Logos, which reflects itself as a Triangle in the Third Logos, or Heavenly Man, and then disappears. The Third Logos, containing the “potency of formative creation,” develops the Tetraktys from the Triangle, and so becomes the Seven the Creative Force, making a Decad with the primordial Triangle which originated it. When this heavenly Triangle and Tetraktys are reflected in the Universe of Matter, as the astral paradigmatic man, they are reversed, and the Triangle, or formative potency, is thrown below the Quaternary, with its apex pointing downwards: the Monad of this astral paradigmatic man is itself a Triangle, bearing to the Quaternary and Triangle the relation born by the primordial Triangle to the Heavenly Man. Hence the phrase, “the upper Triangle . . . is shifted in the man of clay below the seven.” Here again the point tracing the Triangle, the Monad becoming the Ternary, with the Quaternary and the lower creative triangle, make up the Decad, the perfect number. “As above, so below.”
The student will do well to relate the knowledge here acquired to that given on p.477. Here the upper Triangle is given as Violet, Indigo, Blue, associating Violet as the paradigm of all forms with Indigo asMahat, and blue as the Ãtmic Aura. In the Quaternary, Yellow, as substance, is associated with Yellow- Orange, Life, and Red-Orange, the creative potency. Green is the plane between.
The next stage is now explained. Green passes upward to Violet, Indigo, Blue, the Triangle opening out to receive it, and so forming the square, Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green. This leaves the Red-Orange, Yellow- Orange, and Yellow, and these, having thus lost their fourth member, can only form a triangle. This triangle revolves, to point downwards for the descent into matter, and “mirrored on the plane of gross nature, it is reversed,” and appears as in the diagram following these words.
[See supra, i. 89, 90, and 95.]
Colour and Spiritual Sound (Page 533) In the perfect man the Red will be absorbed by the Green; Yellow will become one with Indigo; Yellow-Orange will be absorbed in Blue; Violet will remain outside the True Man, though connected with him. Or, to translate the colours: Kâma will be absorbed in the Lower Manas; Buddhi will become one with Manas; Prâna will be absorbed in the Auric Egg; the physical body remains, connected but outside the real life.
To the five senses at present the property of mankind two more on this globe are to be added. The sixth sense is the psychic sense of colour. The seventh is that of spiritual sound. In the second instruction, the corrected rates of vibration for the seven primary colours and their modulations are given. Inspecting these, it appears that each colour differs from the preceding one by a step of 42, or 6x7.
462 Red + 42 = 504
of psychiccolour perceptions
504 Orange + 42 = 546
546 Yellow + 42 = 588
588 Green + 42 = 630
630 Blue + 42 = 672
672 Indigo + 42 = 714
714 Violet + 42 = 756
756 Red +
Carrying the process backward, and subtracting 42, we find that the first or ground colour is green, for
First semi-octave 42 Blue
The third and fourth octaves would be heat and actinic rays, and are invisible to our present perception.
The seventh sense is that of spiritual sound; and since the vibrations of the sixth progress by steps of 6x7 those of the seventh progress by steps of 7x7. This is their table:
The fifth sense is in our possession: it is possibly that of geometrical form, and its steps of progression would be 5x7, or 35.
The fourth sense is that of physical hearing, music, and its progressions are 28, or 4x7. The truth of this is demonstrated by the fact that it is in accord with the theories of Science..

[8/25/2012 5:30:20 PM] Van Atman: Seven Correspondential Contents - (Page 441) 5. Allantois, a protrusion from the Embryo in the form of a closed bag, which spreads itself between 3 and 7, in the midst of 6, and which, after being specialized into the Placenta, serves to conduct nourishment to the Embryo. 6. Interspace between 3 and 7 (the Amnion and Chorion), filled with an albuminous fluid. 7. Chorion, or outer layer.
Now, each of these seven contents severally corresponds with, and is formed after, an antetype, one on each of the seven planes of being with which in their turn correspond the seven states of Matter and all other forces, sensational or functional, in Nature.
The following is a bird’s-eye view of the seven correspondential contents of the wombs of Nature and of Woman. We may contrast them thus:
Cosmic Process (Upper Pole) Human Process (Lower Pole)
1 The mathematical Point, called the "Cosmic See", the Monad of Leibnix; which contians the whole Universe, as the acorn the oak. This is the first bubble on the surface of boundless homogeneous Substance, or Space, the buble of differentiation in its incipient stage. It is the beginning of the Orphic or Brahmâ's Egg. It corresponds in The terrestrial Embryo, which contains in it the future man with all his potentialities. In the series of principles of the human system it is the Atman, or the super-spiritual principle, just as in the physical Solar System it is the Sun Astrology and Astronomy to the Sun
2 The vis vitae of our solar system exudes from the Sun.
(angel) It is called, when referred to the higher planes, Akâsha (beer) It proceeds from the ten "divinities" the ten numbers of the Sun, which is itself the "Perfect Number". These are called Dis - in reality Space - the forces spread in Space, three of which are contained in the Sun's Atman, or seventh principle, and seven are the rays shot out by the Sun.
The Amniotic Fluid exudes from the Embryo. (angel) It is called, on the plane of matter, Prâna [ Prâna is in reality the universal Life Principle.] (beer) It proceeds, taking its source in the universal One Life, from the heart of man and Buddhi, over which the Seven Solar Rays (Gods) preside.
3 The Ether of Space, which, in its external aspect, is the plastic crust which is supposed to envelope the Sun. On the higher plane it is the whole Universe, as the third differentiation of evolving Substance, Mulaprakriti becoming Prakriti. (angel) It corresponds mystically to the manifested Mahat, or the Intellect or Soul of the World
The Amnion, the membrane containing the Amniotic Frluid and enveloping the Embryo.
After the birth of man it becomes the third layer, so to say, of his magneto-vital aura. (angel) Manas, the third principle (counting from above), or the Human Soul in Man.
4 The sidereal contents of Ether, the substantial parts of it, unknown to Modern Science, represented: (angel) In Occult and Kabalistic Mysteries, by Elementals.
(beer) In physical Astronomy, by meteors,comets, and all kinds of casual and phenomenal cosmic bodies Umbilical Vesicle, serving, as Science teaches, to nourish the Embryo originally, but, as Occult Science avers, to carry to the Foetus by osmosis the cosmic influences extraneous to the mother.
(angel) In the grown man these become the feeders of Kâma, over which they preside. (beer) In the physical man, his passions and emotions, the moral meteors and comets of human nature.
5 Life currents in Ether, having their origin in the Sun: the canals through which the vital principle of that Ether (the blood of the Cosmic Body) passes to nourish everything on the Earth and on the other Planets: from the minerals, which are thus made to grow and become specialized, from the plants, which are thus fed, to animal and man, to whom life is thus imparted.
The Allantois, a protrusion from the Embryo, which spreads itself between the Amnion and Chorion; it is supposed to conduct the nourishment from the mother to the Embryo. It corresponds to the life-principle, Prâna or Jîva.
The double radiation, psychic and physical, which radiates from the Cosmic Seed and expands around the whole Kosmos, as well as around the Solar System and every Planet. In Occultism it is called the upper divine, and the lower material, Astral Light.
The Allantois is divided into two layers. The inter space between the Amnion and the Chorion contains the Allantois and also an albuminous fluid. [All the uterine contents, having a direct spiritual connnection with their cosmic antetypes, are, on the physical plane, potent objects in Black Magic, and are therefore considered unclean.]
7 The outer crust of every sidereal body, the Shell of the Mundane Egg, or the sphere of The Chorion, or the Zona Pellucida, the globular object called Blastodermic Vesicle, the our Solar System, of our Earth, and of every man and animal. In sidereal space, Ether proper; on the terrestrial plane, Air, which again is built in seven layers.
(angel) The primordial potential world-stuff becomes (for the Manvantaric period) the permanent globe or globes.
outer and the inner layers of the membrane of which go to form the physical man. The outer, or ectoderm, forms his epidermis; the inner, or endoderm, his muscles, bones, etc.. Man's skin, again, is composed of seven layers.
(angel) The "primitive" becomes the "permanent" Chorion.
