The study of Kabbalah, according to Judaism, originates from Egypt, even though the science of Kabbalah is very ancient, as ancient as the universe. But the masters were teaching Kabbalah in the third sub race, in the Dvapara Yuga, Egypt, in order to deliver unto the fourth sub race, which developed among the Greeks and Romans in the beginning of the dark age or Kali Yuga; and, Through Kabbalah, in the dark age, the Western world was going to receive the special doctrine/ knowledge that is hidden, the roots of which are in the Asian religions from the Satya and Treta Yugas
As we will see in the myth of Genesis, we find many archetypes related with Hinduism, and if we keep studying the book of Genesis, we will find these archetypes also in other ancient religions, older than Judaism, and Christianity. Thus, we find that four letters Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה, are the symbols of Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति, Binah, which is named Iod-Havah Elohim יהוה אלהים in Atziluth (the world of archetypes). As well the symbol of Brahma as Abraham.
As we explained in the previous lecture, the first world that emanated from the absolute, according to Kabbalah, is the world of Atziluth, which as we have said many times is the world of the archetypes; the head of the world of Atziluth is Kether, the Ancient of Days, which is related with the first triangle of the Tree of Life, and which forms the Holy Trinity Kether-Chokmah-Binah. The world of Atziluth relates to 10 emanations, which are visible, and three which are invisible. The three which are invisible are the Ain אין, Ain Soph אין סוף and Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור, which you find above Kether in the Tree of Life. Thus, the 10 which are visible, are the 10 sephiroth in the world of Atziluth, plus the 3 invisible of the Absolute; together, these make 13 eons of light, 13 archetypes which relate to the 13 heavens of the Nahua pantheon and the Mayan Pantheon. Indeed, these 13 eons are very clearly described in the Nahua and Mayan pantheons of the ancient American religions which older than all religions in the Aryan root race. The Mayans were the Atlanteans that studied Kabbalah and who transmitted the Kabbalah to other religions, in different manners.
So, the 13 eons of the world of Atziluth are precisely the mystery that the great masters of the Zohar describe in the Shoshanna, which in English is translated as lily, the water lily, which in Sanskrit is called the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प. These petals of the lotus flower, lily or rosy cross are the symbols of these archetypes, that the Zohar call the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים, living souls of Israel ישראל.
In the second graphic, we find the gematria, which is the science of how in Kabbalah numbers are associated with letters. That's why we insist that when we walk on this path, which is the fourth path, the path of the equilibrated human being, we are obliged to study Kabbalah and alchemy, not only in order to decipher the ancient messages given by ancient masters, but also in order to decipher the messages that we receive from the internal planes.
So, in the second graphic, it is written that the 13 archetypes of light, or 13 attributes of the mercy of mercies, Kether, in the world of Atziluth are summarised in the letters of the name Israel ישראל written in full, which means that if you take the first letter of Israel ישראל, which is the letter Iod י, we find that it is spelled Iod י Vav ו Daleth ד. Thus, this is how we should likewise approach the rest of the letters of the name Israel ישראל. Each letter, as you know, has a number a numerical value. We're not going to explain the numerical value of all the letters because you can find that easily in the internet. So, the numbers of the letter Iod when added together equal 20; then, the letters of Shin, gives 360; Resh, 510; Aleph, 111; and Lamed, 74.
If we make the addition of 20+360+510+11+74 = 1075. So, the word Israel ישראל written in full, give us 1075 which added together gives us 13. Here you find why Israel is named the water lily or the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प, of the archetypes and of course if you make the addition of 13 in itself gives you the number 4 which is the famous tetragrammaton יהוה, that's why the holy name of God has four letters Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei, 4, because in it is hidden יהוה likewise in the name Israel ישראל.
Now, before continuing with this second graphic. Let us go into the third. This, in order for you to see very clear why the lily, the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प, is a symbol of all of these matters that we are talking about.
The word for lily in Hebrew is Shoshana שושנת. You see in the left red letters, the letters that describe the name Shoshana שושנת or lily in Hebrew and below you find the value of the letters. And making the addition you find the number 661. And, again, when making the addition of this number in itself we find the number 13, which is related again with the 13 archetypes that we are mentioning here in the world of Atziluth, the world of light. And of course, 13 is 4… here you find in synthesis, according to Kabbalah, why it is said that Israel ישראל and the lily is the same kabbalistically; of course, this is how we understand it. And why Israel ישראל is called the son, the firstborn of God in reference, of course, to all of these archetypes that we find, and that's why Solomon the king wrote:
“My Self (my Innermost) is” the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As a Shoshana שושנת among thorns (symbol of willpower), so is my love among the daughters (souls of alchemy).” - The Song of Songs 2: 1, 2
Ani אני is translated as “I am,” which is equal to Eheieh אהיה “I am,” both should be translated as ‘He is,” because both words represent the Monad, the Innermost.
And that's the way in which, when you know alchemy, you know that in order to exercise love, to develop this love, with 13 attributes of mercy, or compassion, if you want, you then need to know this mystery. This is how you discover the mystery of being born again, because with these letters is how the universe was created, with the 22 Arcana or the 22 mysteries, since 2+2 = 4.
Remember, letters and numbers are living entities for in the beginning was the Logos as stated in the gospel of John:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” – John 1: 1-3
“In the word was life. And the life is the light of men. And the light shineth in the darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.” – John 1: 4,5
So, all the former verses are embracing the lily, the light and the life. We are going to address the life we are going to address the light and the word, which is the synthesis of the Logos, Christ, which is not a person but a force.
So here you find why the Shoshanna שושנת the lily is equal to Israel ישראל. Returning to the second graphic, we Read that these 13 archetypes are also included and summarised in the letters of the name Abraham אברהם, written in full. Again, we made in the left the addition of all the letters, the spelling letters of the name, Abraham אברהם. And again, we find the number 13, which equals four. That's why when we talk about Abraham אברהם, we are talking about Israel because within Abraham was Israel, and we are going to explain how Genesis explains that in a very kabbalistic, cryptic manner, that only by knowing Kabbalah, we can discover.
Now, it is written that Abraham is Chesed (mercy חסד), the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים or monad, which also applies to Tiphereth which is Israel. For each of the names Abraham and Israel sum 13 which sum four, the Tetragrammaton containing the Divine Name, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה.
Now, the numerical value of Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה written in full again means that you take the spelling of the letters Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה and which together are 45, which is equal to nine. This is how you work with life, because nine is Yesod the sexual force.
Nine is also equal to the numerical value of Adam אדם; remember that Adam אדם is spelled Aleph-Daleth-Mem and the addition of all the letters make nine. The scripture states that Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei יהוה created Adam אדם in his image, signifying Israel, the 13 attributes of mercy of the world of Atziluth. 13 equals to four, who existed in the divine thought, or archetypical mind before creation in the world of Briah. When we said before creation means before the world of Briah it is because, firstly, the world of Atziluth, and then the world of creation which is the world of Briah.
Thereafter Adam אדם, Israel was created by Abraham, in Yesod in the likeness and image of Elohim. How will the offspring of life and the means of subsistence proceed from Tiphereth, the heart? The heart Tiphereth is Israel and Yesod-sex, both symbolised by the letter Vav ואו. The sixth letter Vav ואו of the Hebrew alphabet is spelled Vav-Aleph-Vav ואו, and once again, these letters equal to 13 which make the addition of four יהוה. The letter Vav ו represents the middle column, the medulla of the sephirothic Tree of Life, called in the inscription, my firstborn, even Israel, who nurtures all of the Sephiroth.
So, when we go into initiation, into this mystery of being born again, remember what the Master Jesus said:
“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” – John 3: 5
In Hebrew, the word water is written, Mem-Iod-Mem (Mayim מים). If you observe, Mem has the value of 40. 2 times Mem is 80 or eight if you want, as the letter Aleph א is 1 and Iod י is 10, thus, either are one.
So, Mayim מים is equal to nine. So, nine is related with the letter Mem, which is the 13 letter of the alphabet. Do you see that? It is not coincidence. Mem is the mysterious letter that hides the number 13. And we already explained the number 13. And Mem is Mayim מים, precisely the sexual fluid. Mayim מים in its spelling gives nine, the Sephira Yesod, sex.
We explain and we understand that all these archetypes of Israel are what we will say that 13 aeons of light, which all of us have in our superior monad, and are within the water, within the Mem, because Mem is thirteen and Mem relates to the number nine, which is Yesod that contains the sexual waters of Genesis, in every Tree of Life in the different worlds of kabbalah (Atziluth, Briah, Yetzirah, Assiah).
So, think about that and understand because based on that we understand the lily, the Shoshana, the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प, with the mysterious 13 and four in the middle, we find the number four in the cross. That's why it's called the rosy cross also because it, the cross symbolizes the four aspects of the Lilly and in its middle we find the five aspects of the pentagram that are related with it. And that were added in a time of Babylon to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet, in order not to alter the 22 Arcana, they added five more, these five more are called final letters, meaning that we find these final letters at the end of any word. For instance, here in the right, you find the letter Tzadi צ. And in the center is the final letter Tsadi ץ.
Final means that we will continue the stroke towards Yesod. Because Yesod is the life; when you continue the stroke of the final letters, they end in Yesod. Except the letter Mem מ which is here at the very bottom petal of this small flower in the center of the cross, which is called Mem final ם. So, Mem final ם is always related with Yesod, as we explained, because the word water Mayim מים relates to Yesod the sephirah number nine. We have final Kaph ך, final Peh ף and final Nun ן; so, these are the five letters which are final, which are related with Yesod. Alchemically, in our physical body, they go directly into Yesod this is what we have to understand.
Final in Hebrew is Soph סוף. That's why the letters are called in Hebrew Sophit סופית, and when we say Sophit סופית, we understand the Ain Soph אין סוף and the Ain Soph Aur אין סוף אור related with Ain אין, the Absolute. So, behold the mystery of the five final letters in the centre of the lily or the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प.
Each of these final letters are related with certain alchemical elements that we have to work with, in order to walk and to make light in the darkness. This is why the title of the lecture is, let there be light. And there was light was, as stated in Genesis. When you understand the meaning of these words, you understand that is not a light that was created in the past, neither in the future it is in the eternal now. let there be light means here now. Light and consciousness is the same thing. Let there be light, and there was light, when you are making light.
Light is Christ. He said, I am the light of the world. And is also the word that synthesizes all the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet with which all the books of the Old Testament in the Bible were written. Without knowing the numerical value of the letters, and the meaning of the words, we are lost. That's why Darwin invented his dogma of evolution based on the law of evolution, because he couldn't understand Genesis, and nobody understands it because in order to understand it, we need to know Kabbalah and alchemy, we need to be an alchemist. Everything is hidden. Now, that's why Master Jesus said in the next graphic:
“And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?” – Matthew 6: 28, 29
That means Solomon or the soli-man, the solar man is not arrayed like one of those lilies. But if we talk kabbalistically we understand that Jesus is talking about the water lily, the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प, the rosy cross that encompasses all of the 13 attributes of mercy from the ancient of days, which is Kether which is inside of us.
The Zohar explains this cryptically, because to know Kabbalah you have to be a practical kabbalist-alchemist, in order to understand what the Zohar is also stating in its pages. Let's look again into the book of Genesis, the beginning, like we explained in the previous lecture. Berasheeth Bara Elohim בראשית ברא אלהים are the first words written in the Bible, which is translated as, “In the beginning God created.” But we explained that Berasheeth בראשית means, Bat בת Roshi ראשי, “the daughter of my head (Bera ברא) created Elohim אלהים.”
In other lectures, we explained that the word Elohim אלהים is divided in three aspects. The first is represented by the two letters of El אל Aleph Lamed, represented in Kether. The second by the third letter Hei that forms the word Eleh אלה, which means “these” but also Elah אלה which means “goddess.” But Eleh אלה as “these” means the 13 attributes of mercy within Chokmah because, I repeat, Eleh אלה (Aleph-Lamed-Hei) means “these” in Hebrew, and when you read “these” Eleh אלה, it refers to all of these 13 attributes of mercy within the name Israel, which Chokmah is going to bring down into Tiphereth Israel.
Remember that when we talk about Chokmah, we say that he is the Son, because Kether is the Father and Chokmah is the Son, and the Son is the one who brings down all the 13 attributes from Kether. That's why in the Pistis Sophia, it is explained that the incarnated Christ that we named Jesus Christ, the individual particular in each one of us, has the power to come from the very bottom of the 13th Eon, from Malkuth to the first which is Ain אין, or if you want to count in reverse, you will say Malkuth is the first and Ain אין is the 13th. So, Chokmah has that ability, but we have to be anointed to incarnate it (the messiah משיח), in order to develop all the 13 eons, which the book of Pistis Sophia explains very clear and beautifully.
So, here we find how Mayim מים or Maya מאיה or Mary מרים is the mother of Elohim אלהים. In Gnosticism, we know that the names Mary, Maria, Isis, Isobertha, Rhea, Cybele, Gaea, etc. are just symbols, or the names of the abstract absolute space called Ain Soph אין סוף. In Jewish Kabbalah, she is not represented in images. But in Hinduism it is represented in images. And this is what we must understand.
“The feminine, receptive force through which creation occurs, symbolized in many religions by figures such as Isis, Mary, Maya, Tara, Isobertha, Rhea, Cybele, Gaea, etc. The formless-force-matter symbolizing Nature, whose conception and childbirth reveals the fertility of Nature. In Hebrew, Elah אלה means “goddess, the feminine counterpart of El אל, plus the union of Eleh אלה “these” 13 attributes of mercy produce Elohim.”
When we talk about creation, we talk about Elah אלה as the Ain Soph אין סוף, the unmanifested world of Briah and when we talk about the manifested world of Briah, we have to take into account the Lord Shiva, who is called the first begotten of creation (the first begotten of the Ain Soph אין סוף). And Shiva, the Theomertmalogos, is the Holy Spirit, which is here in the slide. Shiva’s wife is Parvati. Yet, Parvati as Prana-Akasha प्राणआकाश Astra-Mater or Ain Soph אין סוף is that aspect that gave birth to the Holy Trinity which is represented as Elohim אלהים, because if Kether is El אל and Chokmah is Eleh אלה, then Chaiah חיה (life)/ Binah בינה (understanding) is Elehim or Elohim אלהים represented by the letter Iod י and the final letter Mem ם.
This is explained in the Zohar as “who created this?” or we will say, “Who” put Eleh אלה “these” 13 attributes of mercy, which are the attributes of Kether and Chokmah into the manifested world of Briah, Who did it? It was done by “Who” which is written Mi מי Mem-Iod, which backward is Yam ים, meaning ocean, water, sea lake. Yam ים obviously, is addressing the waters of the space which in Sanskrit are called Akasha आकाश.
So, from the world of Atziluth, Shiva the Holy Spirit which is called Chaiah חיה (life)/ Binah בינה (understanding) in Kabbalah is the first begotten, the first that appears in the manifested world of Briah with his wife Parvati according to Hinduism. And where we place this Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति or Shiva and Parvati, we place them as the two Mems of Mayim מים in Daath which is a Sephirah as you can see at the very bottom of these graphics, where we find two Trees of Life, at the second precisely after the first triangle of the Tree of Life.
In Daath we find the first chaos. The first chaos, the space, and of course here is where we find the union of Chaiah חיה (life)/ Binah בינה (understanding) and the Divine Mother, Abba and Aima, Mayim מים, which are called heaven and earth in the chaotic manner according to Kabbalah.
So, we find that between Chaiah חיה (life)/ Binah בינה (understanding) the third sephirah and the fourth, there is an abyss, which is called Daath דעת where the manifested world of Briah בריאה begins, the world of creation.
And in that abyss is where we find Mayim מים, the connection of the Iod י, the world of Atziluth אצילות with the two Mems of the world of Briah בריאה. In other words, the connection of the archetypes of the world of Atziluth, the world of archetypes, into Mayim מים, the world of Briah. Daath connects Chaiah חיה (life)/ Binah בינה (understanding) and Chesed. Who is Chesed? Chesed is the Ruach Elohim. Many times, we said that the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים was hovering upon the waters of Genesis in the beginning of creation. So, when you talk about Chesed and the Holy Spirit (Chaiah חיה life, Binah בינה understanding) you have to understand that between Chaiah חיה (life)/ Binah בינה (understanding) and Chesed exist the 13 attributes of mercy. The Zohar explained very well this about Chaiah and Binah, or Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים and Chesed or Abraham אברהם as follows:
"These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים made the earth and the heavens.” – Genesis 2: 4
'These (Eleh אלה) are the generations of the heavens and the earth, ‘behibaram בהבראם' (when they were created by Abraham). The word ‘behibaram בהבראם' is an anagram of BeAbraham (by Abraham).
The creation (Briah בריאה) was brought about by the transposing of the letters of the concealing word, Bara ברא, into Abar אבר, the sacred principle on which the world (of Briah בריאה) was founded and continues to subsist.
Mi מי (who) was the first aspect of the mysterious unknown (waters of Mayim מים) who, when Bara ברא was transposed into Abar אבר, created Eleh אלה (these). Then, (from Briah בריאה) he took and joined the letter Hei ה to Abar אבר, forming Abrh אברה. And he took and joined the Iod י (of Briah בריאה) to Eleh אלה, forming Elhi אלהי, then of the two component letters of (Mayim מים), he took and added Mem (מם) to each of them and thus were formed Elohim אלהים and Abraham אברהם.
Thus, Chaiah and Binah are Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים or Iod-Havah Elohim or Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei Elohim. So, we find that Binah is the first Elohim and Chesed the second or the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים. If you observe the graphic where you find the Divine Mother or Shiva with Parvati, on the right side of that graphic, we wrote Jehovah Elohim in English and יהוה אלהים in Hebrew.
Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति, And to the left of that graphic is again, that graphic that we have in the first graphic of this pdf, which is called Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים. And beneath, we find the first letters or the first words in Hebrew, that is translated as:
“In the beginning Elohim created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the abyss. And the Spirit of Elohim (Chesed, the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים) hovered upon the face of the waters.” – Genesis 1: 1, 2
Behold, between the first Elohim אלהים (Binah) written in Genesis 1: 1, and the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים (Chesed) written in Genesis 1: 2, we find 13 Hebrew words exactly.
The Zohar explains that these 13 words written between the first Elohim אלהים (Binah) and the and the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים (Chesed) refers to the 13 attributes of mercy, to the 13 archetypes of Israel, which are transferred from the world of Atziluth, which is Elohim אלהים (Binah) into the world of Briah that is controlled by the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים (Chesed).
That's why we explained in the beginning, that the 13 attributes of mercy are in the name Israel, which is Adam created in the image of Elohim. Here we are explaining to you it is only in the image. Remember that when HaAdam was created, it is written:
“And Elohim (better said, the Sea Goddess, Elah-Yam אלה-ים in Malkuth) said (to the Sea God, El-HaYam אל-הים, the Holy Spirit in Binah), Let us make Adam in our image (tzalem צלמ), after our likeness (Damuth דמות).” – Genesis 1: 26
So, the first Adam that is created, which contains all of these 13 attributes that we name Israel, is made into the image (the tzalem צלמ) of the Elohim in the world of Atziluth. This image is called tzalem צלמ in Hebrew. The world of Briah is the one that has to create into the likeness (Damuth דמות). Likeness (Damuth דמות) is the Divine Mother, image (tzalem צלמ) is the Father. So that's why we explain all of us here, without any exception, have these 13 attributes of the image (tzalem צלמ) of Elohim in our particular individual monad.
In our depth, all of us, have these 13 attributes of Israel. But if not by the work of Abraham, which is the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים (Chesed), these 13 attributes will not be in activity; Chesed has to put them into activity. All of these 13 attributes are related not only with our own particular monad, but also with nature and the universe. The Zohar also states:
(From the waters, HaMayim המים) “The holy one took Mi מי (who) and joined it to Eleh אלה and these (13 attributes) formed Elohim אלהים. He also took Mah מה (what, the mother, Aima אימא), and joining it to Abr אבר, formed Abraham אברהם.” - Zohar
Tzalem צלמ is the image of God, when we see the image, we see the light of Atziluth, we see all of the wonders of the universe, which are related with the 13 heavens. Now, if we want to make the likeness of that in us, then the image of Chokmah (Christ) has to come down (from Atziluth) as the Son of Man (Son of Adam) and make that likeness in us in that is what is to be born again with the light and with the life. As it is written:
“In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God” – John 1: 4, 5, 12
That is what find in the gospel of John.
Now, regarding the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים it is stated:
“And the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים was hovering upon the face of the water.” – Genesis 1: 2
If you are reading the Hebrew there are only five words after Ruach Elohim. The Zohar explain this very clearly when you know Kabbalah. The five leaves of the water lily or the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प, which are in the center, relate to Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod and Yesod. Those are the five, because when you talk about HaAdam made into the likeness—listen carefully—not into the image, but into the likeness of Elah-Yam אלה-ים, we have to talk about the second triangle and the third triangle, which makes 6 sephiroth.
But since we are talking about the Ruach Elohim, which is Chesed, and since the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים is the one that works with one, two, three, four, five leaves of the lily, the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प, inside of us. In it, we have to create the astral body, mental body, the causal bodies and fortify the consciousness in Yesod.
We are approaching only the first day in order for us to understand what it is to be born again. To be born again, is first to make light. That is the first step; it is not by believing in Jesus that we are going to be born again or by belonging to this or that religion or this philosophy school or another philosophy school. It is by working with alchemy, with those 13 attributes of Israel, which are related as we explained with the heart and with the sex, that form the word Vav ואו. That is why when we talk about HaAdam, we talk about Yesod and Tiphereth as well. And that's why in Tiphereth we place Israel with all of those 13 attributes that we are talking about, which are the thirteen aeons of light, that each one of us has to develop.
It is stated and the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים was hovering above the face of the waters. Waters relate to Yesod the sexual Genesic creative waters above (the cerebrospinal fluid) and below (the genital fluid). These are the waters, HaMayim המים, of Genesis. We work with them in alchemy.
And remember that, if we count the 7 main sephiroth that represents the man, from Chesed to Malkuth, Yesod is the 6th. That's why the Book of Genesis stated: Let us now make the man into our image and into our likeness in the sixth day because (Chaiah חיה life, Binah בינה understanding) as the man here, works through Yesod. That's why the world of Yesod is represented by a man, a naked man.
And of course, that work that we are talking about here has to be done through Malkuth, because if Yesod is the man, Malkuth is the female, that we call in kabbalah the Shabbath or the seventh sephirah, counting from Chesed downwards. That's why the 7th sephirah, Malkuth asks Yesod, “Let us now make the man into our image into our likeness.” What man is she talking about? The man of Briah, of course.
The one that falls into sin is the man of Briah, Adam of Briah. The first man that we talked about, related to Atziluth and that contains all the 13 archetypes of light, never falls because he contains the pure lights (the 13 HaShemim השמים) of (HaShem השם) who dwells in (HaShemim השמים) the 13 heavens. The one that falls is the man of Briah which is made into the likeness. One thing is the man made into the likeness, another thing is the man into the image. All of us have the man into the image inside, which is our own monad with all the 13 attributes in potency. And if that monad wants to create that man into the likeness, he has to descend to float above the waters (HaMayim המים) of Yesod, and fulfill, or better said, settle his work on the seventh day. That’s why the morning of the seventh day and the evening of the sixth day are together.
Talking about creation, the water and the spirit, remember that Jesus said, we need to be borne by water and the spirit and the Ruach is a spirit. Ruach Elohim, the spirit of God is our own particular monad, which is the other aspect of Brahma in Hinduism.
So after understanding this, we find the next graphic after Bereshith Bara Elohim. We see “the heavens and the earth and the earth was formless and void.” We find a nebula because in the universe a formless matter is in heaven, when you read in Genesis.
In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth, and the Earth was formless and void this refers to the matter, which, as you find here, is chaotic. But Heaven and Earth are together is what in Greek mythology is called Chaos and Gaia, or Uranos in Roman terms. Uranos and Gaia.
Today is the fourth of February, the beginning of another year of the constellation of Uranus. The era of Aquarius, which relates to that because when you see Aquarius, the superior waters in the air, the Akasha आकाश we find:
“The heavens and the Earth, and the Earth was formless and void.” – Genesis 1: 1, 2
Formless and void is how we all have those 13 attributes of mercy in our earth or physicality.
Because in the heavens and in the earth of Aquarius, the Akasha आकाश, are the 13 attributes of mercy. Behold, those are the words between the first Elohim אלהים and the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים written in the book of Genesis. So, this is how we are, in other words with our attributes or archetypes formless and void. And the next graphic says:
“And darkness was upon the face of the abyss,” better said, upon the face of the water abyss." - Genesis 1: 2
Shiva as well as Krishna are always dark, because this is how we have them inside. In the same way that the charcoal contains the fire and the light that can illuminate us in the same way darkness is upon the face of our abyss, our own sexual waters and that's why Shiva is there. Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति represents the Holy Spirit, (Chaiah חיה life, Binah בינה understanding) or in other words, Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים, Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei Elohim in the first chaos called Daath.
In Kabbalah, in the Tree of Life, the first chaos is Daath and Daath is controlled by Shiva and Parvati. Where are Shiva and Parvati? Shiva and Parvati are in the waters, HaMayim המים, Mi מי represents Shiva, the male aspect, and Mah מה Parvati, the female aspect. Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति represent the masculine and feminine aspects of the waters HaMayim המים. Through these Holy Spirits which are called Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति, Chokmah will descend into Daath, the world of Briah and with him the 13 attributes of Mercy will descend into the world of Malkuth. And Jesus Christ with his 12 apostles, will be born from Mary מרים in Mitzarim מצרים Egypt, Malkuth, our physicality. This is how we see it kabbalistically and alchemically.
Now, the next graphic states what the master Samael explains in the three mountains:
The sacred fire makes the waters of Life fertile, in order for the master to be born within us.
Certainly, every Angel is a child of the Divine mother Kundalini. Really, She is virginal before during and after childbirth.
In The Name Of Truth we solemnly affirm the following. The third logos, the Holy Spirit. Shiva (Binah) is the first begotten of creation. Our inner individual Monad or more correctly, our superior individual monad. Who is the husband of Devi Kundalini, our particular Cosmic mother.” - Samael Aun Weor
The former quotation is what Samael Aun Weor stated in “The 3 Mountains.” Indeed, the master has to be born within us or to be born again. In other words, Let us make Adam into our image into our likeness. That is the birth of the master inside, which means to start putting into activity the 13 attributes of God, or the Shoshanna.
The Divine mother Kundalini is indeed virginal before during and after childbirth. Because it is through scientific chastity that we build the human being inside of us; remember our Divine Mother, Kundalini relates to Yesod. Tetis the Waters of Yesod, down.
He addressed the superior monad in Daath, meaning Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति, the Holy Spirit that contains the Holy Trinity within themselves, He and She represent our individual particular superior monad in each one of us.
This is because the child of that Holy Spirit of that Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति is Chesed, the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים that is called Abraham in the Bible. So, the child of Jehovah Elohim is Abraham. Or as we said in Hinduism, the child of the Holy Trinity is Brahma. The father of Brahma is represented by Vishnu.
Why is the father represented by Vishnu? Because Chokmah, the son and Kether the father, and Binah, the Holy Spirit are one. And Vishnu represents the universe. The multiplicity of the unity. Vishnu the Christ is universal. But from his navel emanates, as you see here, where we find Brahma. Brahma, in this case, coming out of the navel of Vishnu represents our own particular, Chesed, Abraham or Brahma. That's why the Genesis says:
“And the spirit of Elohim hovered upon the face of the waters.” – Genesis 1: 2
In this graphic we find Vishnu with his wife, which is called Lakshmi. Shiva has his wife whose name is Parvati. And the name of the wife of Brahma is Sarasvati.
Here is something very beautiful. You see how from Hinduism, the teachings go into the land of Keb, Egypt and then into the Hebrews, all these archetypes change their names in different manners according to the language. The way that you write Abraham, if you rearrange the letters, you will find the name Brahma.
The wife of Abraham was Sarah. In the beginning was called Sarah was written as Sarai שרי which means “my princess,” the divine princess kundalini. The wife of Brahma is called Sarasvati, Sarai, Sarah. Is that coincidence? No, it's the same archetype, symbolized different ways: one in Sanskrit, and the other is Hebrew. Brahma and Sarasvati; Abraham and Sarah.
Very easy to see.
And that's why in the graphic that we were explaining, we put the Ruach Elohim, who is a child of Jehovah Elohim. If you want to see who Jehovah Elohim is in us, it is the Holy Spirit that represents the Holy Trinity. And who is the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים in us? Our own particular monad, which is called, Brahma in Sanskrit, in Hinduism. But in Genesis, in Kabbalah, this archetype is named Abraham.
Because Abraham represents Chesed חסד (mercy) according to the Zohar.
And Elohim said, “let there be light and there was light.” In order to make the master inside of us, in order for the master to be born inside of us, the 13 attributes of Light, have to organize and to make light within us. In other words, It is through the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים that the light is made. Remember that it is written:
“And the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים was hovering upon the face of the waters. And Elohim said, let there be light. But when you say and Elohim said, let there be light.”
In this word Elohim, we are pointing to the Father Son and Holy Spirit in Binah, but also the Ruach Elohim, which is Chesed. In this way, you form the four faces of Brahma. The 4 faces of Brahma are Chesed, and the other 3 faces of Brahma are Kether, Chokmah and Binah; these form the Ruach Elohim that we are talking about here. That's why we stated when you name Chesed, Brahma, you have to unite the Holy Trinity above, with him, which together are the 4, the famous Tetragrammaton.
In between the first triangle and Chesed you find the 13 attributes of light, which are 4, the famous Tetragrammaton. This is the mystery. That's why, when it is said, “let there be light” it means to awaken Sarasvati within us.
Behold here Sarah (Sarasvati) and Abraham or Brahma with four heads. Abraham or Brahma represents our Innermost (Chesed, Atman) Kether-Chokmah-Binah or Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva are the other three faces of Brahma. So, in Hinduism Brahma represents our innermost Atman and likewise Kether. This is why Chesed means mercy but Kether is the mercy of mercies. Kether is the Brahma of Brahmas.
Remember it is written in the Bible: “Abraham descended to Egypt, Mitzraim מצרים, with his wife Sarah,” in order to be initiated in the minor and major mysteries. That descension of Abraham means the descension of the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים upon the face of the waters in Yesod, because Egypt is called Mitzraim מצרים, which has the 2 Mems of HaMayim המים, the waters
And Tzar צר the middle word means, the land between the waters, which is Malkuth, in order to work with Alchemy, in order to make light in the darkness and that implies the activity of male-female the two letters Iod י of Veyyetzirah וייצר (Genesis 2:7). That's why Adam needed Chavah חוה (Eve) in order to create light.
Because in order to make this work, you have to receive the knowledge or the science of the Tree of Good and Evil, which is sex.
But remember, we are talking about creating the human into the “Likeness.” The human made into the likeness has the option when they enter into sex: to transmute, or to fornicate; to be in good or to be in evil, it's up to us.
And that's why the serpent, that represents the sense of touch in our physical body, appears in Briah. Through the sense of touch is how Adam knew Eve. This is how the man knows the woman, because through the sense of touch is how we perform the sexual act and then we enter and see the fruits of the Tree of Good and Evil. If we transmute the energy of the Tree of Good and Evil, the Tree of Knowledge, then we develop knowledge, we receive knowledge. The master is born inside. The first initiation of the Major Mysteries is when we awaken the kundalini in Malkuth, when we start working with the generations of the heavens and the Earth in us.
Here we quoted in the next graphic. The second chapter of the Book of Genesis, where it is written:
'These (Eleh אלה) are the generations of the heavens and the earth, ‘behibaram בהבראם' (when they were created by Abraham). The word ‘behibaram בהבראם' is an anagram of BeAbraham (by Abraham). in the day that Jehovah Elohim יהוה אלהים made the earth and the heavens.” – Genesis 2: 4
A very cryptic message there. We explain that these refer to the 13 attributes of Mercy.
“These” (Eleh אלה) are all 13 elements of Israel. “These” (Eleh אלה, the 13 elements of Israel) are what the Zohar call the Neshamoth Chayim נשמת חיים, living souls of Israel ישראל, which are the generations of the heavens and the Earth when they were created by Brahma or Abraham. How do you say that in Hebrew? Behibaram בהבראם, “when they were created,” but if you switch the letters of Behibaram בהבראם, you find the name Abraham באברהם.
But if you modify this word Behibaram בהבראם further, you could say also by “Brahma ב-ברהמא were created.” Remember, Brahma is the creator according to Hinduism.
You see, if you read “these are the generations of the heavens and the Earth by Brahma (or by Abraham)” it is the same thing because Brahma is our own particular Monad and Abraham also represents Chesed. “And the heavens and the Earth,” represent the five aspects of the lily, the lotus flower पद्म पुष्प, in the center, heaven, and the earth, the seventh sephirah, which is Malkuth.
This is how we work, when we are working with alchemy, making light in the darkness. Remember that Jesus, who, in the cosmic drama represents Christ, said, in the holy land:
“I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.” – John 8: 12
The light of the world is Christ, the solar light, the 13 attributes of mercy or the 13 aeons that the Pistis Sophia talks about; this light that we have to develop. When we are in the sexual act, we transmute our life (Chaiah חיה life, Binah בינה understanding) then light is made from fire in us and we perform the first day of Genesis.
That is why when the kundalini awakens in the next graphic.
You find the graphic of Sarasvati, the Divine mother, the wife of Brahma or in other words, Sarah, the wife of Abraham.
Sarah, Sarasvati awakens within us, and then she gives birth to Isaac, which is that part of us that will start creating the human because Isaac represents Geburah in Kabbalah. If Abraham represent Chesed, Isaac represents Geburah. And that's precisely the first step of the path of being born again, creating that which we have to create inside of us. That's why it is written: “And Elohim saw the light that it was good.”
That light is the light of the kundalini, which in Sanskrit is Sarasvati. This is how from the Coccyx, the Church of Ephesus, the chakra Muladhara, the feminine light of Malkuth, which is called Sarah or in this case, Sarasvati goes up and is united or becomes united with Brahma, the monad.
When that happens, then Sarasvati is placed in Chokmah. On the next graphic, it is written:
“And Elohim divided the light from the darkness. And Elohim called the light day and the Darkness he called night. And there was evening and there was morning the first day.” - Genesis 1: 5
Who is the evening? The woman. Who is the day? The man. Night and day make the first day together, when they do not fornicate; because, if there is orgasm in the sexual act, and then the day is in one side and the night is in the other side. But, when we transmute the sexual force in Yesod, both day and night become one.
As Genesis explains, “and the evening and the morning united were the first day.” We have to unite the two forces in Yesod, or as we said in Kabbalah, the right pillar of the Tree of Life and the left pillar of the Tree of Life. The right pillar of the Tree of Life is good, light, and the left is good darkness, because from the darkness, we make light.
This is how we create the master within, because our chemical work has to be combined with the comprehension of our defects and vices that we have in the left in the darkness, the consciousness, which is light that is hidden within those elements and that we need to extract in order to make light. See the last graphic of the Tree of Life.
We always explain that Geburah is in the left side. When we talk about darkness, as we see in the graphic, we place Chaiah חיה (life)/ Binah בינה (understanding) in darkness. It says, “and darkness was upon the face of the abyss.” Darkness is Chaiah חיה (life)/ Binah בינה (understanding), the Holy Spirit. Because from him, we take the light. Chaiah חיה life, Binah בינה understanding, the Holy Spirit is the maker of light in us. That is why it is the very top of the left side of the Tree of Life. That is why Binah is ruled by Saturn and the color of Saturn is black, and also violet.
Violet, purple is a color of the Divine Mother in Binah. If you want to represent the Divine Mother in Binah, Aima-Elohim, Parvati the wife of Shiva is represented with purple. with violet. Shiva is represented with darkness, which is from where we take the light. And of course, beneath Binah is Geburah, which is the divine consciousness where the 13 attributes have to be placed when we put them into activity. Remember, in Chesed, Abraham has the 13 attributes likewise in Israel. When we work in this way with alchemy, with Malkuth, the first serpent of the physical body goes directly to Geburah, because Malkuth is just an extension of the fire of Geburah.
When we talk about Malkuth we say it is united with the left column, because the right column goes only into Yesod. In other words, Abraham and Chokmah go into Yesod, the sexual energy, the male. But the female goes down into Malkuth which is Binah-Geburah-Hod.
That's why when we raise the light, the fire in the physical body, which is called Kundalini, all of that light-fire develops in Geburah, the divine consciousness because only in Geburah do we can find the 13 individual particular attributes of any master that is born for the first time, the first initiation of the Major Mysteries. It would be absurd if when we make the light of the kundalini in the first initiation to leave the 13 aeons in Malkuth, in our physical body. Just imagine. That the light is being born and all those divine 13 attributes are developed with the first serpent, Kundalini and then remain in the physical body? What will be doing with 13 attributes of light with the ego as we have it, very fat? That will be the first appearance of fornicator gods.
The ego is a fornicator. Anger pride, vanity, and all those egos that we have within with the 13 attributes will make that light shine in your anger, shine in your pride, in your lust and your vanity, your gluttony and your laziness. But God knows that, which is why he separated that light from us, the darkness, and placed the 13 attributes in Geburah.
That is why master Samael explains very clearly in his books, that the first initiation of the Major Mysteries is absorbed by Geburah, because Malkuth is just an extension of Geburah, but Malkuth, is a fallen sephirah, which is us. When we start rising again then that light goes into our divine consciousness, Geburah in other words, which is also called Guinevere in Celtic mythology.
Helen, the divine consciousness is called Buddhi in Sanskrit. That is why, when you continue with the days of Genesis, the process of being born again, your goal is to unite the consciousness, which is trapped in the ego, to liberate it and to unite it with Geburah, with the divine consciousness, called Neshamah in Hebrew.
The divine soul, Neshamah is above. Master Samael explains in the book of Kabbalah that Neshamah, the divine soul is Geburah. We have just an embryo of soul, a part of Geburah, which is called Buddhadatu or the Buddhatā, the essence that we have within.
Now, we explain why when the Buddhatā here in this physical world rises the first serpent, since the Buddhatā is part of Geburah, Geburah absorbs that because up there Geburah is pure and retains those 13 attributes. Later on, we can share those 13 attributes in different levels because that is the birth of the master.
The birth of the master means that the 13 attributes of light of the world of Atziluth will shine in Geburah, and within Geburah is Chesed, Abraham. This is how Isaac becomes one with Abraham inside of us, in the biblical manner. This is how the creation of the master begins, the first initiation. This is just the first step in being born again by the water and the spirit.
So, this birth, as you can see encompasses God. That's why it is written: “And God said.”
Many beginners ask that, if they can reach initiations through alchemy by the clues that we are giving now freely in the internet and through the books of the master Samael Aun Weor, if they can be born as masters of the first day in the internal planes, and the answer is the one that is being born as a master in the internal planes is Chesed together with Geburah, it is not the person down here.
The person down here has all the elements that the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים needs in order to build the master. That is why it is written that the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים was “floating upon the face of the waters.”
Let us observe the graphic of the man and a woman making light which states, “Let there be light. And there was light.” Notice the first word to the right in Hebrew.
Veh-ee-Amar Elohim ויאמר אלהים, means “And said Elohim,” Look kabbalistically with your spiritual eyes, and you will see that the letter Vav ו in Hebrew in kabbalah makes the sound “Oh,” because there are no vowels in the Hebrew alphabet. Vav ו makes the sound Oh. Iod י makes the “Ih” sound, and Aleph א makes the sound “Ah.” Thus, together, these letters are IAO יאו. You see how it is hidden? The mantra, the main mantra IAO יאו is hidden there, and you can find it also in all of those letters of “let there be light יהיאור and there was light ויהיאור”; you find that Mantra IAO three times.
Now behold the mystery of the letter Aleph א, that is, the mantra Ah; it relates to Kether, the breath in the lungs. The letter Aleph א, Ah, also relates to the spirit, the Ruach Elohim, Chesed.
When you breathe, the letter Iod י that vibrates on the root of your nose goes into your lungs as Aleph א, “Ah,” and from the lungs it goes into the heart as “Oh.”
Here, in the root of your nose, between your eyebrows, is the sound of Iod י, “Ee,” when the air penetrates there. That “Ee,” Iod י is Kether, because the letter Iod י represents Kether because the letter Iod י is 10 that represents the 10th sephiroth.
So, when the letter Iod י enters into your lungs, it becomes the letter Aleph א, the shape of which unites three letters: one Vav ו and two Iods י together.
So, the letter Aleph א (symbol of the breath of life) holds the holy trinity or as the master Samael explains, the three breaths of Akasha आकाश, namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that descend through the root of your nose into your lungs.
And that Aleph א (symbol of the breath of life) is where we find the husband and wife, represented by the two letters Iod י, going to go into your heart (through the Vav ו) as purified blood from the genitalia of husband and wife, by making the sound “Oh” of IAO.
The “Oh” of IAO is the mantra, the vowel that vibrates in the heart, but also in your genitalia, Yesod; the “Oh” of IAO vibrates in the sex.
That is why, when husband and wife chant “Oooh,” the sexual force, the energy goes up through the Vav ו, their spinal column and descends into the husband and wife’s hearts. That is the traveling of the vowel “Oh” of IAO, which relates to the letter Vav ו. That's why the letter Vav ו in Aleph א, represents the staff of the patriarchs, because that staff of the patriarchs is the spinal column and this is how the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים transmutes the sexual force to the heart. IAO.
So, “Oh” is the Vav ו. Remember that Vav ו unites Yesod with Tiphereth, the heart. We told you that before. How does that Vav ו written in the middle of Aleph א unite Yesod, sex with Tiphereth, the heart? It does it through the letter Aleph א which is “Ah.”
Thanks to Aleph א (symbol of the breath of life) the 13 attributes of Mercy enter through your nose, go into your heart, and from the heart to your sex, and, when you transmute, from the sex to your head, to your heart. That is why the mantra IAO represents the Holy Trinity, and why it is the most powerful mantra that you can vocalize in the sexual act.
But, you have to understand that you are working with the 13 attributes of mercy, which are in Atziluth, and which are connected to the Aleph א of Abraham, the Ruach Elohim. If you are not concentrated in your Ruach Elohim, your own monad, your own Abraham, how are those 13 attributes going to work in you? It is not just being there in the sexual act and avoiding the spasm or the orgasm of the animals. You have to be connected to God. You have to remember God, you have to remember, Brahma. You have to remember the Lord. And that is why the other two letters which are here from Ve-ee-Amar Elohim ויא-מרא-להים which is Mem, Resh and Aleph א in Aramaic. Mare מרא means “lord, master, ruler” or simply “Lord of the sea להים.”
So, Mare מרא is the Lord IAO, and who is IAO? IAO is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. IAO is Kether, Chokmah and Binah, the Lord. In your monad that IAO is Brahma (Chesed Abraham), Geburah and Tiphereth the holy trimurti that makes our own monad. Remember that, individually speaking, the monad is the trimurti Atman-Buddhi-Manas or spirit, divine soul and human soul.
So, you and God have to be united there. You have to remember God in the sexual act. You have to make of the sexual act a ceremony, because there is where you face the Elohim אלהים. EL אל is God, Elah אלה is goddess and Yam ים is water. This is how EL אל and Elah אלה are one Elohim אלהים within HaMayim המים, the sexual waters. So, when man and woman are united in the sexual act, they are making an Elohim אלהים between the two.
And these two Elohim אלהים have to say: “IAO, Veh-ee-Amar Elohim ויאמר אלהים" which is: “And Elohim said.” Husband-and-wife represent the Elohim אלהים below, and Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति make the Elohim אלהים above. They are the ones who say: “Let there be light.”
So, you might ask how did Elohim אלהים make the light? Well, Elohim אלהים made the light by chanting IAO, 3 times. You will find those 3 times in the saying:
“And Elohim said, Let there be light and there was light. ויא-מר אלהים יה-יאו-ר ויה-יאו-ר.”
The Zohar explains.
Rabbi Isaac said: "The creative Logos, the male principle was in the light and the female principle in the darkness until the manifestation of (the Ruach) Elohim, thus, in the work of creation they (Abba and Aima Elohim, Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति) became unified, and formed the necessary complements of each other. If it be asked, why were they separated and disjoined? it was that there might be a distinction between them; and they became united in order that the true light might be found in its complement, the darkness, and the true darkness in its complement, the light. Though at present there are many different shades and degrees between them, yet, notwithstanding, they form but one whole, as it is written, 'Day, one.'"
Rabbi Simeon said: "It is on this union of light and darkness that the whole universe is based and formed. In Scripture it is referred to and spoken of as a covenant. Thus, it is written:
"If my covenant be not with day and night and if I had not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; then will I cast away the (sperm, zera זרע) of Jacob (Israel), and David my (עבד Obd) servant, so that I will not take any of his (sperm, zera זרע) to be rulers over the (sperm, zera זרע) of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their (את, their Schekinah שכינה, from) captivity to return (as fecundated mercury, within their Vav ו, their spine) and have mercy on them." (Jeremiah 33: 25, 26)." - Zohar
That is why it is written “And Elohim said, Let there be light and there was light.” The male and female in the sexual act. Because if you were to believe, to say “And Elohim said let there be light” just by yourself with your pranayama, well, you can then make a little bit of light like a little candle.
But if you say: “Let there be light And there was light” that is, if there are a man and a woman there sexually united, then willpower will develop the true light, because the woman gives to the man the other side “And there was light”, likewise, the man gives “Let there be light” to the woman.
So, behold the powerful Mantra IAO; but, I repeat, if you forget your Divine Mother, who is “And there was light” and your Divine Father who is, “Let there be light” how are you going to develop the true light within you?
“Let there be light (the man)” with “And there was light (the woman)” sexually united together awaken the kundalini, because the kundalini is the outcome of the two polarities. The kundalini does not awaken if we are not working with the famous and mysterious letter Vav ו, the spine that unites the heart and sex, sex and heart, and even the brain, which is the letter Iod י of IAO. This is how we begin to be born again by the water and the spirit, as master Jesus said.
What is it “To be born again?” We are already born in the physical plane as humanoids, but to be born in the fire and in the light is a matter of transmuting the sexual force, in order to be born as humans.
So that is the first day of Genesis. And that is the Mantra IAO written in Genesis, in the bible. This is how we are born again. We are taking care of our brain, our heart and our sex. That is why we have three brains, because we have IAO inside of us.
Do you have questions?
Audience: Can you talk about the different aspects of the Divine Mother in terms of function?
Instructor: In other words, the difference between the different aspects of the Divine Mother because the Divine Mother has five aspects? Well, we only named three related with the holy trinity. Parvati, who is the wife of Shiva, is the one that works in the darkness in order to make the light; but, when the light, when Parvati and Shiva which are the Holy Spirit, work through Brahma, Chesed, the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים, then Sarasvati awakens within us.
Sarasvati is the wife of Brahma and Brahma represents our own particular monad. That is Sarai שרי and Abram אברם. But Parvati is of course related with the superior part of the Monad, and Vishnu with Lakshmi are the aspect of the Divine Mother, with Christ. that is the aspect of the light.
Vishnu is not individual in us. In us, Shiva is individual in us, Kether is individual, but we go to Vishnu. Even when Binah and Kether are within this second aspect, it is universal and this is only possible to understand when you meditate in Vishnu or in Chokmah or in the central sun the Christ, the solar absolute, or whatever name you want to give it in any religion; I speak from my own direct experience.
When I meditated in my own particular Kether, I discovered that it is individually in me. When I meditated in Binah the Holy Spirit, I discovered it is individually in me. In Chesed as well, which is the monad.
But, when I concentrate in different aspects of Chokmah, which is called Vishnu in India, it is not individual, it is many. It depends in which incarnation you are concentrated in. If I concentrate in the master Samael Aun Weor in Vishnu, then I experienced the master Samael Aun Weor. One time I was concentrated in Jiddu Krishnamurti; Jiddu Krishnamurti is already a monad that is one with Vishnu, with the Glorian in his own development. So, when I was concentrating in him all of a sudden, when I enter into ecstasy, I myself was Jiddu Krishnamurti. And I was sitting there explaining and talking like him, but when I returned I said, but this is not possible because he died a few years ago and I was alive and so, how come I am Jiddu Krishnamurti? Then, I understood, what happened is that I entered into the world of Chokmah, where Vishnu is one. That is why, when Arjuna asked Krishna (who represents Vishnu), “Show us your universal form” and then Krishna, who is an incarnation of Vishnu, represented that universal form with many faces or as Avalokiteshvara with many hands and faces. So that is Vishnu and that is why Lakshmi the wife of Vishnu represents that universality. That is also why from the navel of Vishnu comes Brahma because we are connected through the ray that we belong to, to the universal Christ.
This why when you meditate on your Divine Mother only through meditation is how you understand what the Divine mother is in you, in the universe and in your monad.
Of course, there are other aspects of the Divine Mother in Hinduism, one of which is called Kali. Kali is the ruler of this Kali Yuga. Kali represents the Divine Mother Death; with her you annihilate the ego. But, She also represents the Divine Mother aspect of the black magicians. Durga is another aspect of divine mother.
In any aspect we have to work with her positively. But beginning with the wife of Brahma, which is Sarasvati, which means essence of being, the essence of your being is in the sexual force. That is Brahma’s wife, Sarasvati.
Audience: About the 13 attributes of mercy, are they in Yesod?
Instructor: “Let there be light,” is Yesod, the sexual force is Yesod, working through Chesed (mercy, the monad), and the monad working through Kether (the mercy of mercies). This is how you have to see it, you know, from the 13 attributes of mercy or aeons from Kether because Kether is represented by 13 curls of hair. So, he has all the 13 attributes. He is the perfect man made into the image.
But those certain attributes are connected to Abraham, which is Chesed, and Abraham is the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים that floats upon the face of the waters of Yesod. So, when the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים is hovering upon the face of the waters of Yesod, the waters of sexuality in the sexual act connect, and those 13 attributes that come from above to your physicality and enter into the divine soul through the first initiation. Then, the master of the first initiation of the Major Mysteries, of the mahamanvantara, is born.
Audience: The man of Briah is born?
Instructor: Yes, we are talking about the man of Briah, the man of creation, the man related with the Divine Mother Kundalini.
Audience: Does this duality of Briah, good and evil, also exist in the world of Atziluth as well?
Instructor: The duality exists in Atziluth, but not the good and evil duality. Good and evil, right and wrong, only exist from Briah downwards. But the duality of Atziluth is the Divine Mother and the Divine Father, who are light; they are not a duality in that they are opposites, but rather, they are united. This is what we call Elohim, better said, Jehovah-Elohim, which are pure light. Right?
'These (Eleh אלה) are the generations of the heavens and the earth (in Briah), ‘behibaram בהבראם' (when they were created by Abraham). In the day that (the 13 attributes of mercy were brough down through Binah) Jehovah Elohim (from Atziluth into Daath, to) make (as Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ति) the earth and the heavens.” – Genesis 2: 4
So then, from Briah downwards, the duality becomes good and evil, here is where the man of Briah can fall. The man of Atziluth never falls, he is pure. The man of Atziluth is made into the image. The man of Briah is made into the image and likeness, because in order to make the likeness, you need the image. So, behold that the man of Briah, creation, is the likeness and image, but the world of Atziluth is only in the image, which is pure light.
The goal is to return into Atziluth and to the absolute. But for that we have to go beyond good and evil; as long as we are in Briah, we are always submitted to the duality of good and evil. Demons are born in Briah. Do you have another question?
Audience: Does the devil allow creation?
Instructor: Well, when we talk about the devil, you mean Satan, you mean, Lucifer, that serpent? That relates to the sexual force, that is the devil or Satan in this sense. We're not talking about ego here, right? We're talking about this part of the logos who enters into activity in creation, because Satan is an indispensable archetype. Satan needs to be active in Briah in order for the man of creation of Briah to emerge, which is knowing good and evil.
This element called Lucifer or Satan, in the Bible is a tempter, is the mentor that has to show you your weakness in order for you to develop. Without Lucifer without the tempter, it is impossible for the man of Briah to become, right? Who will development knowledge of good and evil, like Elohim that knows good and evil, without that tempter? Obviously if the man or that element doesn't know good and evil, they get trapped and sink into evil. Our duty is to come out of evil in order to go beyond good and evil by the light or through the light, by working with the 13 aeons in different stages. This is just the first step that is written by Moses in the Zohar.
This is, of course, was a closed secret, but now it is open, why? Because this humanity will disappear sooner or later. And you know that.
Audience: Is it correct to say that the father is Kether and Tiphereth the son.
Instructor: Yes, it is correct because the Holy Trinity of the world of Atziluth take control of the three triangles of the Tree of Life. The first triangle, Kether-Chokmah-Binah is controlled by Kether. The second triangle Chesed-Geburah-Tiphereth is controlled by Chokmah, which is the Son and the third triangle, which is the triangle of priesthood, which is Netzach-Hod-Yesod is controlled by Binah, the Holy Spirit, in Yesod. So, in Yesod is the Holy Spirit and in Tiphereth is the Son, and Kether is the father in the head, related with the three brains or forces.
In this case. We will say the feminine aspect of this Trinity in our physicality is the physical body, Malkuth, which is feminine. Another question.
Audience: Through the breathing cycle can we build the image of God?
Instructor: Well, I need an explanation of what you refer to, when talking about the breathing cycle. If we are the image, give us an example in order to see where that image is, because the image is not in the physical body, it is not in the vital body, in the astral or in the mind either. It is in the spirit. That is the image. It is Chesed. That is the image, because these 13 aeons or 13 attributes of mercy of Kether are in Abraham, in Chesed, in Brahma, but in potentiality, not in activity. Abraham, Chesed or Brahma, is our own spirit.
That's why I insist in the sexual act we have to breathe. If you want to put those attributes into activity, you have to remember that the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים is the one that is floating above the waters of sexuality, Yesod. And if you forget that, then the one that is doing the work is your ego, the devil, not God. So, this is why you have to remember your Being, because who is the devil? Well, you are the devil. I am the devil with the ego very alive. So those attributes of light are within. When humanity in any religion praise God and want to be in contact with it or with him, with she, whatever you want to call that which is God, we do so through the 13 attributes of Mercy. Whether you practice Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, etc., whatever religion, those attributes are within. When you are remembering God, you are in contact with those 13 attributes.
Now, to put them into activity is a matter of alchemy; but, you can become in contact with them, into union with them, through meditation, through ecstasy, samadhi. Through meditation you can be in contact with this 13 attributes, because everybody has them inside and they are the 13 attributes connected to Christ, which is the Son, the superior aspect, what the master calls the superior monad. If those 13 attributes descend into us, then these will make of us an Elohim and that is the path of the cross written of the four Gospels.
Audience: How do we reach those inner states in meditation?
Instructor: By meditating, you have to sit down and follow the rules which are written in different lectures already given in the radio. We have to encounter through the 13 attributes of mercy. First you have to quiet your physical body, relax it. You have to relax your emotions, as well and your mind. When your mind is in silence, when the emotions are quiet and your physicality is completely relaxed, then the essence that belongs to Geburah and Geburah to Chesed, can experience those 13 attributes because within Chesed those 13 attributes are in potentiality and united with the rest of the monad above.
Audience: What is the difference between “image” and “likeness”?
Instructor: Image relates to the 13 attributes of mercy in Kether; these descend into Abraham, the monad. Every one of us has his own spirit, his own monad that is the man made into the image of God. That is why Chesed in Atziluth is called El אל. The Ruach Elohim, and El אל is God in Hebrew. Abraham is our particular El אל. This El אל inside of us has 13 attributes of mercy (Chesed חסד). He is the man made into the image of God. When that man is made, God then wants to finish his creation. Remember: God finished his creation in the seventh day, which means in Malkuth, and when that image or that light, which is above in the spirit, comes down to shine through you. When that light is shining through you, then you are the man made into the likeness. For instance, Moses is a man made into the likeness. Jesus a man made into the likeness. But the one that made that man into the likeness was Chesed, the Ruach Elohim רוח אלהים that took the image in order to do it.
For instance, a painter, when he places the canvas in front of him, is nothing there? He uses imagination in order to make the likeness that he sees clairvoyantly, with his mind, appear on the canvas. When the canvas and the painting is done, then the painter says, behold here, the likeness of my image, imagination, which I had in my head. So, in this way, the canvas will show the likeness of the image, the imagination within the painter’s head. The man made into the likeness of God is when we work through alchemy and we take the image which are the 13 attributes of mercy, little by little in different levels, until finally you can say, “Behold, there is Jesus of Nazareth. A man made into the likeness and image of God.”
Likewise, Moses or Mohammad or Lao Tze or many great Masters made into the likeness and image. But if we point to us, well, sadly, we have the image inside but in potentiality. But is waiting there, because the likeness is not in activity. No, there is no likeness in us of God. We are as Jesus said:
“You are (the likeness) of your father the devil (your lust), and the lusts of your father you will do. He (the ego of lust) was a murderer (of Chaiah חיה, life) from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own (likeness): for he is a liar, and the father of it.” – John 8: 44
So, we are the likeness of the devil because we have lust, anger, pride, vanity, envy, gluttony and laziness. That is not the likeness of God, that is the likeness of the devil, the ego. So, we have to annihilate the likeness of the devil and to make the likeness of God. That is a process of alchemy, meditation, annihilation, a long process. That is to be born again. Another question.
Audience: Where is Pistis Sophia in the Tree of Life?
Instructor: Pistis Sophia is everywhere. Pistis Sophia relates to the 13 attributes of mercy. That's why it is written that Pistis Sophia is the one that utters the 13 repentances. Pistis Sophia is the union of Pistis, the human being with Sophia wisdom, Bodhi, Chokmah. The union of Sophia and Pistis make Pistis Sophia. The soul united with Christ is what the gospels call the son of man, or Jesus called the son of man. It is the son of man because if you transmute, that is, perform alchemy, transformation meditation, the son there, and will be born within you, made into the likeness. The son of man... the man is Chesed. That is the true man in us, the spirit, the monad; the son of man is the human consciousness, Pistis, united with Sophia, with the Lord, in different steps.
We are only talking about the first step here: the awakening of the kundalini. Do you have any other question? No more questions.
Thank you very much.
