A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section Two - Division D - Thought Elementals and Fire Elementals
(f.) Activity of the Pitris

The joint activity of the solar and the lunar Pitris 53 in the process pursued by the reincarnating Ego is our next subject of consideration. The Ego, driven by desire for physical experience, has made the initial move and a vibration, emanating from the center of the lotus bud, has reached the lotus petals, and has consequently vibrated in deva substance, or in [774] matter vitalized by the Agnishvattas. As they are galvanized into activity (according to the group affected) the vibration is increased, and a dual sound is emitted. This dual sound is the basis of the mantram upon which the Ego's cycle of incarnation is founded. The vibration, pulsating through the outer circle of petals (for the two inner circles and the three central petals are not as yet responsive) arrives at the triangle formed by the three permanent atoms, and vivifies the three lower spirillae, causing a slight response in the fourth, and leaving the higher three yet dormant. In each round one of the spirillae has been 'created,' and in this fourth round (through the creation of the fourth spirilla) the fourth or human kingdom can come into being. The word 'creation' must be occultly understood, and means the appearance in active manifestation of some form of energy. Only in the next round will the fifth spirilla be an active functioning unit in a sense incomprehensible now.

Students should bear in mind that this applies primarily to the humanity individualized on this globe, and was also equally true in the earlier chain; units, however, which come into this fourth or Earth Chain from the earlier one, are much ahead of earth's humanity, and their fifth spirilla is awakening into organized activity in this round. All in Nature overlaps.

When therefore this vibration from the central Will has arrived at the atomic triangle it is an indication that the entire lotus is turning its force downwards, and for the period of manifestation the flow of egoic energy is towards the lower, and consequently away from the higher. There is at this stage very little turning of egoic energy in the direction of the Monad, for it has not yet generated enough force, and is not as yet radioactive towards the Spirit aspect. Its activities are primarily internal and self-centered for the greater part of the time, or are directed towards arousing the permanent atoms, [775] and not towards the unfolding of the petals. This should be carefully borne in mind.

53 The joint activity of solar and lunar Pitris. - S. D., II, 258.

  1. "The spark hangs from the flame by the finest thread of Fohat.
    1. The three-tongued flame that never dies - Triad.
    2. The four wicks - Quaternary.
    3. The thread of Fohat - Thread of Life.
  2. It journeys through the seven worlds of maya.
    • Macrocosmically - the seven planetary schemes.
    • Planetary - the seven chains of a scheme.
    • Microcosmically - the seven globes of a chain.

    Note and meditate upon:

    "...the divine Septenary hanging from the triad, thus forming the Decad and its permutations. Seven, five and three."

  3. It stops in the first, and is a metal and a stone; it passes into the second and behold - a plant; the plant whirls through seven forms and becomes a sacred animal." - Compare S. D., I, 266.

    Note the kabalistic aphorism: "A stone becomes a plant; a plant, a beast; a beast, a man; a man, a spirit; and the spirit, God." - S. D., I, 267.

  4. From the combined attributes of these, Manu, the Thinker, is formed.
    - See S. D., II, 179, 187.
  5. Who forms him? The seven lives and the One Life. - See S. D., II, 268.
    The seven groups of lives who form the three lower bodies. The lunar Pitris or fathers of the material forms.
  6. Who completes him? The fivefold Lha.
    Who unites the higher Spiritual Triad and the lower self?
    1. The fivefold Gods of the intelligence.
    2. The fifth principle of mind.
  7. Who perfects the last body? Fish, sin, and soma.
    1. Fish, sin and soma collectively compose the three symbols of the immortal being.
    2. Fish - symbol of the buddhic principle, the manifested life on earth. Note the avatara of Vishnu. The sign of Pisces, the fish. Jesus the fisher of men.
    3. Sin - The fall of man, involution of Spirit.
    4. Soma - Moon. The work of lunar Pitris, providing bodies.
      Read stanza VII, 6, S. D., I, 285.
