A Heap Of Sacred Geometry
Ever scope out the sacred geometry of a Tibetan stūpa?
Stūpa is derived from a Sanskrit word for “heap.”
The first floor of a stūpa is a CUBE.
The second floor is a GLOBE.
The third is a PYRAMID.
The fourth is a sideways CRESCENT MOON.
The fifth is a DIAMOND.
Each floor represents a CHAKRA.
The cube is filled with EARTH.
The globe is filled with WATER.
The pyramid is filled with FIRE.
The crescent moon is filled with WOOD.
The diamond is filled with METAL.
It’s the Five Element Law revised.
Either the I Ching: The Chinese Book of Changes is wrong or the Five Element Law reverses Wood and Metal.
The smart money is on the I Ching.
Also, read the introduction to Five Elements and Ten Stems: Nan Ching Theory, Diagnostics and Practice.
Kirpal Singh (The Crown of Life: A Study in Yoga, 1961) wrote …
“The first downward projection of the spiritual current, as it emanated from God, brought into manifestation ether (akash), which is the most subtle of the elements and spreads everywhere in space. This has two aspects. One is that of the spirit or soul remaining unmanifest in the ether, and the other that of the manifest ether, wherein the two forces, positive and negative, which are inherent in it, further combined and brought into manifestation air (vayu), and exactly in the same way the manifest air gave birth to fire (agni), and the manifest fire produced water (jal), and the manifest water led to the formation of earth (prithvi), while the spirit of each element which is essentially the same remained unmanifest throughout.”
