STANZA 2, BOOK OF DZYAN: DEIFIC BUILDERS IN GERMINATION
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
“There was neither silence nor sound,” it is declared in Line 4 of Stanza 2, Book of Dzyan. Stanza 2 continues with subtle attributions of the state-of-things in the rest phase of the great cycle prior to the forthcoming out-breath in another ‘day of Brahma’. Such a state of One is incomprehensible to those raised in the binary mindset, so it takes a painstaking paradigm change and high wisdom to comprehend divine wisdom as taught by the rishis and sages of the East.
Below is Stanza II, as contained in the opening chapters of Volume I of the the Secret Doctrine.
1 . . . . WHERE WERE THE BUILDERS, THE LUMINOUS SONS OF MANVANTARIC DAWN? . . . IN THE UNKNOWN DARKNESS IN THEIR AH-HI PARANISHPANNA. THE PRODUCERS OF FORM FROM NO-FORM—THE ROOT OF THE WORLD—THE DEVAMATRI AND SVÂBHÂVAT, RESTED IN THE BLISS OF NON-BEING.
2. . . . WHERE WAS SILENCE? WHERE THE EARS TO SENSE IT? NO, THERE WAS NEITHER SILENCE NOR SOUND; NAUGHT SAVE CEASELESS ETERNAL BREATH, WHICH KNOWS ITSELF NOT.
3. THE HOUR HAD NOT YET STRUCK; THE RAY HAD NOT YET FLASHED INTO THE GERM; THE MATRIPADMA HAD NOT YET SWOLLEN.
4. HER HEART HAD NOT YET OPENED FOR THE ONE RAY TO ENTER, THENCE TO FALL, AS THREE INTO FOUR, INTO THE LAP OF MAYA.
5. THE SEVEN SONS WERE NOT YET BORN FROM THE WEB OF LIGHT. DARKNESS ALONE WAS FATHER-MOTHER, SVÂBHÂVAT; AND SVÂBHÂVAT WAS IN DARKNESS.
6. THESE TWO ARE THE GERM, AND THE GERM IS ONE. THE UNIVERSE WAS STILL CONCEALED IN THE DIVINE THOUGHT AND THE DIVINE BOSOM . . . .
“Where were the builders,” is a guide question that signifies the chief hierarchs altogether, the “luminous sons of the manvantaric dawn.” The possibility of producing form from no-form is declared in the Stanza. Adepts are taught that the architects of form are the devic beings, while the builders of form the elemental beings.
At the higher realms in the generation of forms, we are aware of the deity Brahma as assisted by the hierarchs called the Elohim. The latter is subtly revealed as “the seven sons” in Line 5. The “seven sons” is also an esoteric referent for the 7 Mighty Archangels or Dhyani-Buddha who are regarded as deity in level of evolution by many mystical circles.
Let us reflect on the note of HPB concerning Stanza 2, in the pages preceding the Stanzas in Volume I of the same opus:
The stage described in Stanza II. is, to a western mind, so nearly identical with that mentioned in the first Stanza, that to express the idea of its difference would require a treatise in itself. Hence it must be left to the intuition and the higher faculties of the reader to grasp, as far as he can, the meaning of the allegorical phrases used. Indeed it must be remembered that all these Stanzas appeal to the inner faculties rather than to the ordinary comprehension of the physical brain.
