**The
Occult Significance of pi**

**Posted

**This
analysis begins with a look at Stanza 4 of the first part of the Stanzas of
Dzyan**

**The
Stanzas of Dzyan appear in two parts given as follows:-**

**PART -1-
COSMOGENESIS has seven Stanzas which appear in Book 1 of The Secret Doctrine **

**PART -2-
ANTHROPOGENESIS had twelve Stanzas which appear in Book 2 of The Secret
Doctrine**

**So lets
look at the Cosmogenesis Stanza 4**

**Synopsis
of Stanza 4**

**Stanza -4-
shows the differentiation of the "Germ" of the Universe into the
Septenary Hierarchy of conscious Divine Powers,which are the active **

**manifestations
of the One Supreme Energy. They are the framers, shapers, and ultimately the
creators of all the manifested Universe, in the only sense in which the name
"creator" is intelligible; they inform and guide it; they are the
intelligent Beings who adjust and control evolution, embodying in themselves
those manifestations of the One Law, which we know as the "Laws of
Nature". Generally, they are known as the Dhyan Chohans, through each of
the various groups has its own designation in the Secret Doctrine.**

**This stage
of evolution is spoken of in Hindu mythology as the "Creation of the
Gods".**

**STANZA -4-**

**1. . . .
Listen, ye Sons of the Earth, to your Instructors - the Sons of the Fire.
Learn, there is neither first nor last; for all is One Number, issued from
No-Number.**

**2. Learn
what we, who descend from the Primordial Seven, we, who are born from the
Primordial Flame, have learnt from our Fathers...**

**3. From
the Effulgency of Light - the Ray of the Ever-Darkness - sprang in Space the
reawakened Energies; the One from the Egg, the Six, and the Five. Then the
Three, the One, the Four, the One, the Five- the Twice Seven, the Sum Total.
And these are the Essences, the Flames, the Elements, the Builders, the
Numbers, the Arūpa , the Rūpa , and the Force or Divine Man, the Sum Total. And
from the Divine Man emanated the Forms, the ****Sparks****, the Sacred Animals, and the Messengers of
the Sacred Fathers within the Holy Four.**

**4. This
was the Army of the Voice, the Divine Mother of the Seven. The ****Sparks**** of the Seven are subject to,and the servants
of, the First, the Second, the Third,the Fourth,the Fifth, the Sixth, and the
Seventh of the Seven. These are called Spheres, Triangles, Cubes,Lines and
Modellers; for thus stands the Eternal Nidāna - the Oi-Ha-Hou.**

**5. The
Oi-Ha-Hou, which is Darkness, the Boundless, or the No-Number, Adi-Nidāna **

**Svabhāvat,the
O;**

** **

**-1-The
Adi-Sanat, the Number, for he is One.**

** **

** -2-The Voice of the Word, Svabhāvat, the **

**Numbers,for
he is One and Nine.**

**3- The
"Formless Square".**

**And these
Three, enclosed within the O, are the Sacred Four; and the Ten are the Arūpa
Universe. Then come the Sons, the Seven Fighters, the One, the Eight left out,
and his Breath which is the Light-Maker **

**6.
....Then the Second Seven, who are the Lipika, produced by the Three. The **

**Rejected
Son is One. The "Son-Suns" are countless.**

**Of
particular interest is the second occult number given in Sloka 3 as follows:-**

**Then the
Three, the One, the Four, the One, the Five- the Twice Seven, the Sum Total.**

**This gives
us the numbers 3, 1, 4, 1, 5. which are the same numbers found in pi 3.1415,
which as we all remember from school geometry, is the magical number used for
working out the area of circles, i.e. the ratio of the circumference of a
circle to its diameter.**

**This
significance of this number is outlined:- **

**And these
are the Essences, the Flames, the Elements, the Builders, the Numbers, the
Arūpa , the Rūpa , and the Force or Divine Man, the Sum Total.**

**H P
Blavatsky elaborates on the significance of 3.1415**

**From The
Secret Doctrine:-**

**"The
Three, the One, the Four, the One, the Five" (in their totality -- twice
seven) represent 31415 -- the numerical hierarchy of the Dhyan-Chohans of
various orders, and of the inner or circumscribed world.** When placed on the
boundary of the great circle of "Pass not" (see Stanza V.), called
also the Dhyanipasa, the "rope of the Angels," the "rope"
that hedges off the phenomenal from the noumenal Kosmos, (not falling within
the range of our present objective consciousness); this number, when not
enlarged by permutation and expansion, is ever 31415 anagrammatically and
Kabalistically, being both the number of the circle and the mystic Svastica,
the twice seven once more; for whatever way the two sets of figures are
counted, when added separately, one figure after another, whether crossways,
from right or from left, they will always yield fourteen. Mathematically they
represent the well-known calculation, namely, that the ratio of the diameter to
the circumference of a circle is as 1 to 3.1415, or the value of the (pi), as
this ratio is called -- the symbol being always used in mathematical formulae
to express it. This set of figures must have the same meaning, since the 1 :
314,159, and then again 1 : 3 : 1,415,927 are worked out in the secret
calculations to express the various cycles and ages of the "first born,"
or 311,040,000,000,000 with fractions, and yield the same 13,415**

**H P
Blavatsky also points out that Hebrew tradition comes up with the same numbers
in a different order. Please note all letters in the Hebrew alphabet have a
numerical value.**

**From The
Secret Doctrine:-**

**Mr.
Ralston Skinner, author of The Source of Measures, reads the Hebrew word Alhim
in the same number values, by omitting, as said, the ciphers and by permutation
-- 13,514: since [[hebrew]] (a) is 1 : [[hebrew]] (l) is 3 (or 30); [[hebrew]]
(h) is 5; [[hebrew]] (i) 1 for 10; and [[hebrew]] (m) is 4 (40), and
anagrammatically -- 31,415 as explained by him.**
