UNIVERSE CONCEALED IN SAT
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
In the mantra OM TAT SAT OM is embedded the Sat. Sat appertains to the totality of reality, of Absolute Being, and has no direct translation or is untranslatable. The human mind however tends to put things in mental brackets, such as to equate Sat to “universe blanketed by intelligence” which makes no sense to the spiritual Hierarchy.
Brahma, deity of the physical universe, is male-female. Yet to the fanatical blind faith followers, Brahma is presumed male. This note, focused on the theme of ‘divine thought’ in Sloka 6 of Stanza 2, Book of Dzyan, aids in understanding the subject of Sat, Brahma, and related divine truths.
The spiritually Perfected Ones thus declared, in Sloka 6, the contention: “THESE TWO ARE THE GERM, AND THE GERM IS—ONE. THE UNIVERSE WAS STILL CONCEALED IN THE DIVINE THOUGHT AND THE DIVINE BOSOM.”
HPB, with the close guidance of the Mahatmas of the spiritual Brotherhood, substantiated the theme with the following articulation, as contained in Volume I, Secret Doctrine:
The “Divine Thought” does not imply the idea of a Divine thinker. The Universe, not only past, present, and future—which is a human and finite idea expressed by finite thought—but in its totality, the Sat (an untranslateable term), the absolute being, with the Past and Future crystallized in an eternal Present, is that Thought itself reflected in a secondary or manifest cause. Brahma (neuter) as the Mysterium Magnum of Paracelsus is an absolute mystery to the human mind. Brahmâ, the male-female, its aspect and anthropomorphic reflection, is conceivable to the perceptions of blind faith, though rejected by human intellect when it attains its majority. (See Part II., “Primordial Substance and Divine Thought.”)
Hence the statement that during the prologue, so to say, of the drama of Creation, or the beginning of cosmic evolution, the Universe or the “Son” lies still concealed “in the Divine Thought,” which had not yet penetrated “into the Divine Bosom.” This idea, note well, is at the root, and forms the origin of all the allegories about the “Sons of God” born of immaculate virgins.
