Volume 1:80-85

In closing the Third Stanza, Brahman is "Hansa Vahana" and Brahma is "Kala-Hansa." Brahma is the vehicle (the central point) of divine consciousness on the ray from the immaculate white disk. "Narayan," who is Vishnu per G. de Purucker's Encyclopedic Theosophical Glossary, is therefore the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Logos interchangeably (and thus equated with "Swayambhuva" or the self-evolving principle of the Kosmos) who penetrates the Mundane Egg to emerge as "Brahma or Prajapti" in the "future Universe." In this future universe, Brahma is the "germ of unknown Darkness," and he becomes through self-expansion the "Universe woven out of his own substance."

In G. de Purucker's Studies on page 310, he outlined the upper triad in Brahmanism. For the primary universe, it is as follows: 1) Parabrahman or Brahman 2) Mulaprakriti or Pradhana 3) Mahat. This Brahmanical structuring of the upper three logoi is followed in this commentary. The Mahat of the primary universe (above Alaya) is Brahma. Of course, there is a secondary universe where Mahat is below Alaya. So, we see that the upper three logoi of Parabrahman (the immaculate white disk), Mulaprakriti (the dull black ground), and Mahat (the central point) reflect themselves into the middle three logoi of Paramatman, Ad-Buddhi, and Mahat, per G. de Purucker's diagram in Fountain-Source on page 437.

With the universe expanding, Svabhavat fulfills the role of Mulaprakriti where the 6th cosmical principle in the Mundane Egg mirrors the 2nd Logos of the primary universe. Mulaprakriti serves as the Space for the vibrating potential point and Svabhavat serves as the Space for the "universal vibration of atoms." In the same way that Fohat hardens the central point into the triplicate layers of cosmic suns (Central, Polar, and Equatorial) starting with the 7th cosmical principle, Fohat also "hardens the atoms" starting in the 4th cosmical principle and passes down into the life-force of Cosmic Jiva, Astral Light, and Sthula-Sarira.
