Gracious day from this Fellow of the Great White Lodge!
Still about Stanza VII of the Book of Dzyan, body of ancient discourse handed to mankind by the ascended masters of the Brotherhood, the reflection agenda will next move to the subject of ‘immortal root.’ As it was clarified in past articles of mine, the elements of atma, buddhi and manas comprise the three elements of man (from manu or thinking being) are those that bring us closer to understanding the ‘immortal’ in man.
Having gone through those reflections in my past notes, let us then move on to deepen our understanding of the subject of ‘immortal’. Sloka 4 of Stanza VII, Book of Dzyan, sums up the discourse as follows:
…IT IS THE ROOT THAT NEVER DIES, THE THREE-TONGUED FLAME OF THE FOUR WICKS* (a) . . . THE WICKS ARE THE SPARKS, THAT DRAW FROM THE THREE-TONGUED FLAME (their upper triad) SHOT OUT BY THE SEVEN, THEIR FLAME; THE BEAMS AND SPARKS OF ONE MOON REFLECTED IN THE RUNNING WAVES OF ALL THE RIVERS OF THE EARTH (“Bhumi,” or “Prithivi”)† (b).
In aid of our reflection, HP Blavatsky wrote the brief articulation in Volume I, Secret Doctrine, as follows:
(a) The “Three-tongued flame” that never dies is the immortal spiritual triad—the Atma-Buddhi and Manas—the fruition of the latter assimilated by the first two after every terrestrial life. The “four wicks” that go out and are extinguished, are the four lower principles, including the body.
“I am the three-wicked Flame and my wicks are immortal,” says the defunct. “I enter into the domain of Sekhem (the God whose arm sows the seed of action produced by the disembodied soul) and I enter the region of the Flames who have destroyed their adversaries,” i.e., got rid of the sin-creating “four wicks.” (See chap. i., vii., “Book of the Dead,” and the “Mysteries of Ro-stan.”)
(b) Just as milliards of bright sparks dance on the waters of an ocean above which one and the same moon is shining, so our evanescent personalities—the illusive envelopes of the immortal MONAD-EGO—twinkle and dance on the waves of Maya. They last and appear, as the thousands of sparks produced by the moon-beams, only so long as the Queen of the Night radiates her lustre on the running waters of life: the period of a Manvantara; and then they disappear, the beams—symbols of our eternal Spiritual Egos—alone surviving, re-merged in, and being, as they were before, one with the Mother-Source.
* The three-tongued flame of the four wicks corresponds to the four unities and the three Binaries of the Sephirothal tree (see Commentary on Stanza VI.).
† Useless to repeat again that the terms given here are Sanskrit translations; for the original terms, unknown and unheard of in Europe, would only puzzle the reader more, and serve no useful purpose.
As already explicated before, the soul alone does not constitute what is ‘immortal’ in man. If a person keeps on committing horrendous crimes across many lives, chances are that the personal soul will be cut off from its Oversoul and will, after prolonged drifting in the dark regions of 4-dimensional space, disintegrate.
Billions of souls among us today, in the 3-dimensional physical plane that is our habitat, won’t be able to evolve fast enough so that, at the end of the present Manvantara or Evolutionary Round, they will meet their corresponding destruction. Remember that souls were not created to automatically return to I Am That I Am but must strive to evolve and return to the Oversoul, which in turn must strive to evolve in order to be integrated into the Monad.
All monads for that matter will eventually be reintegrated back to the Godhead, the I Am That I Am.
