Thread: The Seven Portals

    Default The Seven Portals

    As a disciple these are the keys I was taught when I first started studying with my teacher of Theosophy and before I was allowed in the Halls Of Learning. It is from Madame Blavatsky taken from the Voice of the Silence.


    1. DANA, the key of charity and love immortal.

    2. SHILA ,the key of Harmony in word and act, the key that counterbalances the cause and the effect , and leaves no further room for Karmic action.

    3.KSHANTI, patience sweet, that nought can ruffle.

    4.VIRAGA, indifference to pleasure and to pain.

    5.VIRYA, the dauntless energy that fights its way to the supernal TRUTH, out of the mire of lies terrestrial.

    6.DHYANA, whose golden gate once opened leads the Narjol toward the realm of Sat eternal and its ceaseless contemplations.

    7.PRAJNA, the key to which makes of man a God, creating him a Bodhisattva, son of the Dhyanis.

    Such to the portals are the golden keys.

    Before thou canst approach the last, O weaver of thy freedom, thou hast to master these Paramitas of perfection-the virtues transcendental six and ten in number-along the weary Path. H. P. Blavatsky.

    This is the first thing I taught my students. Can anyone tell me what they understand about these Seven Portals and their meanings?

    Thank You. The hardest for me was number four VIRAGA indifference to pleasure and pain. I know it sounds as if we must have no feeling and never merge the two, but in a way it is through my initiation that I had to not acknowledge pleasure or pain as if they did not exist. That was a tough one for me at first.

    Yes it is. Are these chakra names?
    When the listening is good, life is good
    He who listens is the master of what is beneficial
    Listening is beneficial to the listener
    Listening is better than anything else
    That is how perfect love is born.

    No they are not, they are the seven gate ways man must go through. Emma teaches this, and was a good friend of Lady Dunsany, so if anyone would know it would be Emma.

    I've only read The Secret Doctrine and Isis Unveiled. So Forgive me for my lack of understanding.

    Are these gateways into different states of consciousness or into different realms or both?

    Are these gateways metaphorical for humanity as a whole in order to reach an enlightened state of being?
    Those who Fall will find their Heaven
    and will always be adored.


    In Plaudo Atri Matris!
