List of Title Abbreviations (in alphabetical order)

TG D. -- Both in the English and Hebrew alphabets the fourth letter, whose numerical value is four. The symbolical signification in the Kabbala of the Daleth is "door". It is the Greek delta , through which the world (whose symbol is the tetrad or number four,) issued, producing the divine seven. The name of the Tetrad was Harmony with the Pythagoreans, "because it is a diatessaron in sesquitertia". With the Kabbalists, the divine name associated with Daleth was Daghoul.

TG Daath (Heb.). Knowledge; "the conjunction of Chokinah and Binah, Wisdom and Understanding: sometimes, in error, called a Sephira. [W.W.W.]

TG Dabar (Heb.). D (a) B (a) R (im), meaning the "Word", and the "Words" in the Chaldean Kabbala, Dabar and Logoi. (See Sec. Doct. I. p. 350, and "Logos" or "Word".)

TG Dache-Dachus (Chald.). The dual emanation of Moymis, the progeny of the dual or androgynous World-Principle, the male Apason and female Tauthe. Like all theocratic nations possessing Temple mysteries, the Babylonians never mentioned the "One" Principle of the Universe, nor did they give it a name. This made Damascius (Theogonies) remark that like the rest of "barbarians" the Babylonians passed it over in silence. Tauthe was the mother of the gods, while Apason was her self-generating male power, Moymis, the ideal universe, being her only-begotten son, and emanating in his turn Dache-Dachus, and at last Belus, the Demiurge of the objective Universe.

TG Dactyli (Gr.). From daktulos, "a finger". The name given to the Phrygian Hierophants of Kybele, who were regarded as the greatest magicians and exorcists. They were five or ten in number because of the five fingers on one hand that blessed, and the ten on both hands which evoke the gods. They also heated by manipulation or mesmerism.

IU Dactyls. (daktulos, a finger). -- A name given to the priests attached to the worship of Kybele (Cybele). Some archaeologists derive the name from GREEK, finger, because they were ten, the same in number as the fingers of the hand. But we do not believe the latter hypothesis is the correct one.

SD INDEX Daedalus (Gk), Zeus Triopos statue II 294n

TG Daemon (Gr.). In the original Hermetic works and ancient classics it has a meaning identical with that of "god", "angel" or "genius". The Daemon of Socrates is the incorruptible part of the man, or rather the real inner man which we call Nous or the rational divine Ego. At all events the Daemon (or Daimon) of the great Sage was surely not the demon of the Christian Hell or of Christian orthodox theology. The name was given by ancient peoples, and especially the philosophers of the Alexandrian school, to all kinds of spirits, whether good or bad, human or otherwise. The- appellation is often synonymous with that of gods or angels. But some philosophers tried, with good reason, to make a just distinction between the many classes.

TG Dagoba (Sk.), or Stupa. Lit: a sacred mound or tower for Buddhist holy relics. These are pyramidal-looking mounds scattered all over India and Buddhist countries, such as Ceylon, Burmah, Central Asia, etc. They are of various size, and generally contain some small relics of Saints or those claimed to have belonged to Gautama, the Buddha. As the human body is supposed to consist of 84,000 dhatus (organic cells with definite vital functions in them), Asoka is said for this reason to have built 84,000 dhatu-gopas or Dagobas in honour of every cell of the Buddha's body, each of which has now become a dharmadhaitu or holy relic. There is in Ceylon a Dhatu-gopa at Anuradhapura, said to date from 160 years B.C. They are now built pyramid-like, but the primitive Dagobas were all shaped like towers with a cupola and several tchhatya (umbrellas) over them. Eitel states that the Chinese Dagobas have all from 7 to 14 tchhatras over them, a number which is symbolical of the human body.

FY Daityas, demons, Titans.

WG Daityas, descendants of Diti, demons, giants who lived in the earliest ages.

GH Daityas literally Descendants of Diti -- by the Rishi Kasyapa. The daityas are the titans (popularly called demons), constantly warring with the gods; at times they are the victors, at others the vanquished. "The first war happened in the night of time, between the gods [and] the (A)-suras, and lasted for the period of one 'divine year.' On this occasion the deities were defeated by the Daityas, under the leadership of Hrada. After that, owing to a device of Vishnu, to whom the conquered gods applied for help, the latter defeated the Asuras. In the Vishnu Purana no interval is found between the two wars. In the Esoteric Doctrine, one war takes place before the building of the Solar system; another, on earth, at the 'creation' of man; " (Secret Doctrine, I, p. 419). The meaning of the wars is, therefore, that the Daityas represent the urgers of evolutionary progress in the cosmic scheme. (Bhagavad-Gita, W. Q. Judge, p. 75)

TG Daitya Guru (Sk.). The instructor of the giants, called Daityas (q.v.) Allegorically, it is the title given to the planet Venus-Lucifer, or rather to its Ruler, Sukra, a male deity (See Sec. Doct. ii. p. 30).

WG Daitya-yuga, an age of the demons, consisting of 12,000 divine years.

TG Daivi-prakriti (Sk.). Primordial, homogeneous light, called by some Indian Occultist, "the Light of the Logos" (see Notes on the Bhagavat Gita, by T. Subba Row, B. A., L.L.B.) when differentiated this light becomes FOHAT.

WG Daiva-prakriti, the synthesis of the six forces in the astral light; the "Light of the Logos."

OG Daiviprakriti -- (Sanskrit) A compound signifying "divine" or "original evolver," or "original source," of the universe or of any self-contained or hierarchical portion of such universe, such as a solar system. Briefly, therefore, daiviprakriti may be called "divine matter," matter here being used in its original sense of "divine mother-evolver" or "divine original substance."

Now, as original substance manifests itself in the kosmic spaces as primordial kosmic light -- light in occult esoteric theosophical philosophy being a form of original matter or substance -- many mystics have referred to daiviprakriti under the phrase "the Light of the Logos." Daiviprakriti is, in fact, the first veil or sheath or ethereal body surrounding the Logos, as pradhana or prakriti surrounds Purusha or Brahman in the Sankhya philosophy, and as, on a scale incomparably more vast, mulaprakriti surrounds parabrahman. As daiviprakriti, therefore, is elemental matter, or matter in its sixth and seventh stages counting from physical matter upwards or, what comes to the same thing, matter in its first and second stages of its evolution from above, we may accurately enough speak of those filmy ethereal wisps of light seen in the midnight skies as a physical manifestation of daiviprakriti, because when they are not actually resolvable nebulae, they are worlds, or rather systems of worlds, in the making.

When daiviprakriti has reached a certain state or condition of evolutionary manifestation, we may properly speak of it under the term fohat. Fohat, in H. P. Blavatsky's words, is

"The essence of cosmic electricity. An occult Tibetan term for Daivi-prakriti, primordial light: and in the universe of manifestation the ever-present electrical energy and ceaseless destructive and formative power. Esoterically, it is the same, Fohat being the universal propelling Vital Force, at once the propeller and the resultant." -- Theosophical Glossary, p. 121

All this is extremely well put, but it must be remembered that although fohat is the energizing power working in and upon manifested daiviprakriti, or primordial substance, as the rider rides the steed, it is the kosmic intelligence, or kosmic monad as Pythagoras would say, working through both daiviprakriti and its differentiated energy called fohat, which is the guiding and controlling principle, not only in the kosmos but in every one of the subordinate elements and beings of the hosts of multitudes of them infilling the kosmos. The heart or essence of the sun is daiviprakriti working as itself, and also in its manifestation called fohat, but through the daiviprakriti and the fohatic aspect of it runs the all-permeant and directive intelligence of the solar divinity. The student should never make the mistake, however, of divorcing this guiding solar intelligence from its veils or vehicles, one of the highest of which is daiviprakriti-fohat.

SKv Daiviprakriti 'Divine-Nature,' prima materia, the highest states of matter, the first luminous emanations of the Universal Mind which form the nuclei of Universes, solar systems, and planets; a compound of daivi, from the verb-root div -- to shine; and prakriti -- original substance or nature, elemental matter. When a world comes into being, its first appearances are fiery and luminous. Thus we read in G. de Purucker's Occult Glossary:

. . . we may accurately enough speak of those filmy ethereal wisps of light seen in the midnight skies as a physical manifestation of Daiviprakriti, because when they are not actually resolvable nebulae, they are worlds, or rather systems of worlds, in the making.

H. P. Blavatsky speaking of Daiviprakriti says in The Secret Doctrine:

It is the informing, ever-present moving-power and life-principle, the vital soul of the suns, moons, planets, and even of our Earth. -- I, 602

TG Daksha (Sk.). A form of Brahma, and his son in the Puranas. But the Rig Veda states that "Daksha sprang from Aditi, and Aditi from Daksha", which proves him to be a personified correlating Creative Force acting on all the planes. The Orientalists seem very much perplexed what to make of him; but Roth is nearer the truth than any, when saying that Daksha is the spiritual power, and at the same time the male energy that generates the gods in eternity, which is represented by Aditi. The Puranas, as a matter of course, anthropomorphize the idea, and show Daksha instituting "sexual intercourse on this earth", after trying every other means of procreation. The generative Force, spiritual at the commencement, becomes of course at the most material end of its evolution a procreative Force on the physical plane; and so far the Puranic allegory is correct, as the Secret Science teaches that our present mode of procreation began towards the end of the third Root-Race.

WG Daksha, ability, faculty, strength, power -- all with especial application to spiritual power and will; son of Marisha, Kandu's daughter, an allegorical personage introduced in the Puranas.

TG Dambulla (Sk.). The name of a huge rock in Ceylon. It is about 400 feet above the level of the sea. Its upper portion is excavated, and several large cave-temples, or Viharas, are cut out of the solid rock, all of these being of pre-Christian date. They are considered as the best preserved antiquities in the, island. The North side of the rock is vertical and quite inaccessible, but on the South side, about 150 feet from its summit, its huge overhanging granite mass has been fashioned into a platform with a row of large cave-temples excavated in the surrounding walls -- evidently at an enormous sacrifice of labour and money. Two Viharas may be mentioned out of the many: the Maha Raja Vihara, 172 ft. in length and 75 in breadth, in which there are upwards of fifty figures of Buddha, most of them larger than life and all formed from the solid rock. A well has been dug out at the foot of the central Dagoba, and from a fissure in the rock there constantly drips into it beautiful clear water which is kept for sacred purposes. In the other, the Maha Dewiyo Vihaya, there is to be seen a gigantic figure of the dead Gautama Buddha, 47 feet long, reclining on a couch and pillow cut out of solid rock like the rest. "This long, narrow and dark temple, the position and placid aspect of Buddha, together with the stillness of the place, tend to impress the beholder with the idea that he is in the chamber of death. The priest asserts . . . . that such was Buddha, and such were those (at his feet stands an attendant) who witnessed the last moments of his mortality" (Hardy's East. Monachism). The view from Dambulla is magnificent. On the large rock platform which seems to be now more visited by very intelligent tame white monkeys than by monks, there stands a huge Bo-Tree, one of the numerous scions from the original Bo-Tree under which the Lord Siddhartha reached Nirvana. "About 50 ft. from the summit there is a pond which, as the priests assert, is never without water." (The Ceylon Almanac, 1834.)
