From Old English heofon "home of God," earlier "the visible sky, firmament."

1. Heaven of the Moon, the astral world

5. Heaven of Mars, the Atmic World, region of Atman

6. Heaven of Jupiter, or Nirvana

7. Heaven of Saturn, the Paranirvanic World

8. Heaven of Uranus, the Mahaparanirvanic World

9. Heaven of Neptune, the Empyrean World

"It is evident that these nine heavens are also within us, here and now. They interpenetrate each other without being confused. Obviously, these nine heavens are found located in nine superior dimensions. Clearly, they are nine parallel universes." - Samael Aun Weor, The Three Mountains

"These nine heavens are represented by the nine planets. For example, when we refer to the Moon, we must not think about the Moon as the physical satellite... Let us consider now the lunar heaven. These heavens do not mean precisely that they are related to the physical Moon, but to the superior regions, those molecular regions which are lunar. They are governed by the Moon. It is a molecular lunar world which is found here in our world."  - Samael Aun Weor, Tarot and Kabbalah


"Let us think for a moment of the humanoid multitudes that populate the face of the earth. They suffer the unspeakable. They are victims of their own errors. If they did not have ego they would not have those errors, nor would they suffer the consequences of such errors. The unique thing required in order to have the right to true happiness is, before all, to not have this ego. Certainly, when psychic aggregates, the inhuman elements that make us so horrible and evil, do not exist within us, then the payment of Karma is non-existent. Thus, the result is happiness."

Samael Aun Weor, Tarot and Kabbalah
