Ether exists in an igneous state (tejas).

Ether exists in a gaseous, fluidic state as the origin of air (vayu).

Ether exists in an aqueous state as the origin of water (apas).

Ether exists in a petreous state as the origin of minerals (prithvi).

These are the tattvas of the Hindustani.

When the tattvas tejas, vayu, apas, and prithvi materialize or condense, we have then the four physical elements, namely: fire, air, water, and earth.

Our ethereal [vital] body is formed by the tattvas.

The tattvas and the chakras are intimately related. The tattvas enter the chakras and then pass into the interior of the glands of internal secretion. When the tattvas are inside these minute endocrine laboratories (the glands), they intensify the glands’ work by transforming themselves into hormones. Thus, the tattvas enter the organism but do not leave it.

The tattvas also transform themselves into genes and chromosomes that later on transform themselves into spermatozoids.

Everything comes from ether. Everything returns into ether.

The ether is the condensation of a substance called akasha. This substance, akasha, is the first radiation of mulaprakriti, which is its root or insipid and undifferentiated primordial matter. This mulaprakriti is known among the alchemists as the ens seminis, the entity of semen.

Akasha is therefore the igneous radiation of the primordial matter. Akasha is contained within the semen. The alchemists state that water (semen) is the habitat of fire (akasha). Akasha is therefore the Kundalini of the Hindustani.

In the books of genesis (from all religious literature), the primordial matter (mulaprakriti) is represented by the waters. In the beginning, the protoplasm of any nebula is ethereal.

If we look further, we have to accept that behind each effect there is a cause. Therefore, the ether itself has to have a cause. We have learned from the yogis of Hindustan that the cause of ether is akasha.

The Asian sages state that akasha is a sea of fire. This super-astral fire is contained within the ens seminis (the mulaprakriti of the sages of India). The seed atoms of any known matter are the ens seminis.

Akasha is super-astral fire. Sounds condense through the mediation of akasha. The Kundalini serpent is fire and sound. Therefore, no one could incarnate the Word (Christ) without previously raising the sacred serpent, because it is impossible to concrete and materialize sound without akasha.

The prana vayus are sounding waves of akasha. These sounding waves condense themselves in the tattvas of the ether. The tattvas materialize themselves in the four elements of nature: fire, air, water, and earth. In conclusion, the chemical-physical world is the outcome of the materialization of sound. The chemical-physical world is condensed sound. We do not accept an anthropomorphic and dogmatic God, but scientifically, we accept sound as a causa causorum of the universe.

Furthermore, there has to be a cause for the precosmic sounds. The great Asian sages tell us of a Solar Logos. Dr. Krumm-Heller stated that “the Logos sounds.” Indeed, the Logos is the Word.

“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. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehend it not.” —John 1:1-5

The Logos is not an individual. The Logos is an army of ineffable beings.

About the Books

Glorian Publishing is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that was started in 1999 in order to bring the books of Samael Aun Weor to English language readers. At that time, the only books in English were made on copy machines, were terribly expensive, and most of the translations were filled with errors, omissions, and confusion. The only way to get the books was from a handful of schools who put up many obstacles and restrictions, requiring students to "earn" access to the books. Therefore, we were asked to ensure that anyone, anywhere, could access the books easily.

Read Your Way

Thanks to Samael Aun Weor and the support of students around the world, our translator and team have spent decades correcting, refining, and publishing all the books by Samael Aun Weor. Along the way, we have sought to raise the quality of the books, increase their availability, and reduce their cost. They are now available worldwide to anyone, without any restrictions. Even if you cannot afford to buy the books, you can read them here, online, for free.
