Question 1: Regarding Geoffrey Barborka’s quote in his book the Divine Plan (page 508),

“Darkness radiates “Light” [First Logos], and Light drops one solitary “Ray” [Second Logos]

.. is Barborka correct when he interprets the First Logos as “Light” and the Second Logos as the “Ray”. Question 2: In relation to this, is the Triangle referred to by Blavatsky [HPB] in her commentaries on this stanza, the Second or Third Logos?

———————————————————————————————

•    The Secret Doctrine

•    The Secret Doctrine Commentaries, The Unpublished 1889 Instructions

•    Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge
