Learn about the influence of the planets across the course of life and their importance in alchemy, or the science of transformation.
"We have to understand and comprehend that the fluid of the Logos is related with the seven main metals, because when we talk about the planets we always refer to the law of heptaparaparshinokh, which is the law of seven, the law that organizes. And that reminds me, or brings into my mind, the Book of Revelation; it is stated there that the lamb, which is a symbol of fire, or that fluidic energy, has seven eyes and seven horns. And it is because the Solar Christ or that fluidic energy organizes itself in this solar system, and in any solar system, through the law of seven, which are represented by the seven planets, related with the week. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which is of course a wrong organization, because the right organization of the planets is Moon the first, Mercury the second, Venus the third, Sun the fourth, Mars the fifth, Jupiter the sixth, and Saturn the seventh. So here we find the seven metals of the earth, silver for the Moon, quicksilver for Mercury, copper for Venus, gold for the Sun, iron for Mars, tin for Jupiter and lead for Saturn. So these seven metals are, we will say, in the kingdom of metals in any planet, the seven physical vehicles, in order for that fluidic force of the Logos, of that lamb of seven eyes and seven horns, to manifest in our world, in the earth. This is how we understand and comprehend that the Logos in its septuple activity helps the evolution of every single element in the earth."
The Pancatattva Ritual is an ancient ritual known in India whose goal is the transformation of substances into higher energies. Panca is a Sanskrit word that means five, and tattva is a Sanskrit word that means truth, suchness, true being; We understand that a tattva is a vibration of the Ether, which in its place is a transformation or vibration of Prana or Solar Light. Pancatattva refers to five vibrations or five types of energy, harnessed by those who want to merge into the highest forces of the universe.
From the point of view of Gnosis, in fact, in any real spiritual tradition, we understand that everything that exists has its origin in the womb of the Divine Mother. That womb is a vastness, an emptiness we call the Akash or Akasha. It is a primordial substance, but it is also not a substance. You could say it is “undifferentiated matter,” but it is before matter. It is called Mulaprakriti, which is the great womb of Divine Mother space, and from that womb arises everything that exists, everything that manifests. So, in synthesis, we are saying that all atoms, all matter, all energy in its root is derived from this womb.
The womb of the Divine Mother space is symbolized in the Book of Genesis as the primordial waters. Likewise, in many other traditions we have the Great Ocean or the Great Waters from which life emerges; and you have this tradition in Hinduism and in various traditions in central and South America.
Those waters are feminine and they are the raw material or the raw source of all manifestation.
This lecture is a powerful beginning to an amazing course of lectures, explaining how physical bodies in the four kingdoms of Nature transform energy for the benefit of the planet. Includes explanations of the Askokin, esoteric symbols from Richard Wagner's master opera "Der Ring des Nibelungen," and the past, present and future Root Races.
Hermes or Mercury is the most important symbol of the tradition of Alchemy. Yet, the Alchemists always kept its true identity veiled. In the modern era, the veil has been removed; now it is time to work with Mercury and transform oneself in a radical way.
"Hermes has an ancient tradition. He is the messenger of the sun. He is the closest companion to the sun. And of course we know the planet Mercury is the closest planet in our solar system to the sun, and has a very rapid orbit. In mythology he is said to be an intercessor, or a messenger who works on behalf of the sun, or with the Christ.
When we study Hermes or Mercury, we understand that he was always viewed as a God of fertility. And as a God of fertility, he was worshipped symbolically by piles of stones that were placed at crossroads. And this contains a very potent symbolism."
