THE ROOT RACES OF MANKIND
By: Scott Ramsey
There are seven Root-Races or evolutionary cycles via which humanity evolves. Every root-race is split into seven minor cycles referred to as sub-races, that are once more subdivided into seven department or household races. These sub-divisions are associated to the fashionable idea of races and ethnicity.
It have to be confused that the sub-races discuss with cultural qualities and to not the extent of evolution of the soul, they’re totally different evolutionary levels humanity as an entire goes via successively. The identical people that compose the present humanity have been reborn in all of the earlier Root-Races.
The Root races are levels in human evolution within the esoteric cosmology of theosophist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, as described in her guide The Secret Doctrine (1888). These races existed primarily on now-lost continents.
In line with Blavatsky’s writings, there can be seven root races assembled for our Earth; every root race is split into seven sub-races. Solely 5 root races have appeared thus far; the sixth is predicted to emerge within the 28th century.
We’re presently on the fifth stage, known as the “Aryans”. Aryans (the phrase means “noble” in Sanskrit).
It’s unlucky that the time period “Aryan” was adopted and perverted by Hitler and his mental predecessor’s fantasies of an “Aryan Superman” and continues to be used immediately by right-wing white energy extremists. Hitler and his inside circle additionally perverted some real historic symbols, just like the swastika (an historic Sanskrit image).
There have been on Earth many civilizations of which we all know nothing. These Races evolve from ethereality to materiality. So each dwelling natural species of animals and vegetation modifications with each new Root-Race.
Each sub-race and nation have their cycles and levels of developmental evolution repeated on a smaller scale. Our race then has, as a Root-race, crossed the center line of the Root Races and is biking onward on the Religious aspect.
The durations of the good root races are divided from one another by nice convulsions of Nature, and by nice geological modifications.
Each root-race is separated by a disaster, a cataclysm—the idea and historic basis of the fables woven afterward into the spiritual material of each individuals, whether or not civilized or savage, underneath the names of “deluges,” “showers of fire”, and just like the ‘nice flood”.
Our current continents have been submerged and had the time to reappear once more and bear their new teams of mankind and civilization; and that, on the first nice geological upheaval, on the subsequent cataclysm, within the collection of periodical cataclysms, that happen from the start to the top of each Spherical, our recognized continents will go down, and the traditional continents will come up once more.
It have to be remembered that the Theosophical idea is that Souls develop by means of an evolutionary course of from:
1. Mineral, to;
2. Plant; to
three. Animal; to
There isn’t any transmigration backward so that a human can’t go backwards to an animal, or plant for instance.
Francis Bacon (whom theosophy considers to be the legendary Rely of St. Germain) in his work The New Atlantis within the yr (1627) describes a possible future civilisation which lives on a land referred to as Bensalem.
The primary root race (Polarian)
The primary root race was “ethereal”, they have been composed of etheric matter. They reproduced by dividing like an amoeba. Earth was nonetheless cooling at the moment. The primary mountain to come up out of the stormy primeval ocean was Mount Meru.
The earth on which the primary race lived was extra ethereal than it’s right now, however comparatively onerous and condensed as compared with these non-self-conscious ‘human’ protoplasts.
That they had big translucent or clear our bodies, ovoid although considerably fluid in type, with no bones or organs, and no hair or pores and skin. They slowly grew extra strong however remained ethereal till the top.
The race was sexless and propagated by fission: a big portion of the physique separated itself and grew into a replica of its dad or mum, a lot as occurs with dwelling cells in the present day. In distinction to the large and extremely ethereal cells of the primary race, our bodily our bodies right now start their existence as a microscopic cell or egg, a speck of gelatinous protoplasm, which slowly hardens and grows into the human type.
The second root race (Hyperborean)
The second root race lived in Hyperborea and their esoteric identify of their continent is Plaksha.
They have been semi-astral beings however grew denser and extra opaque with every passing age. In the direction of its finish, it turned extra gelatinous and filamentoid in construction, and developed the rudimentary beginnings of bones and organs, hair and pores and skin. Though nonetheless kind of ovoid in type, it started to point out the primary outlines of the later human type. Nevertheless, in the direction of its finish, its our bodies handed by means of many curious, part-animal types.
The local weather was tropical as a result of Earth had not but developed an axial tilt. The second root race has no present-day descendants.
The second race was asexual and reproduced by budding, a way of copy nonetheless present in sure unicellular organisms (e.g. sure micro organism, yeasts, and protozoans).
The primary two races weren’t absolutely human as that they had no self-conscious minds. Their consciousness was like that of somebody in a daze or deep daydream. They have been guided by religious intuition and have been mentally very similar to little youngsters.
The third root race (Lemurian)
The Lemurians lived in Lemuria. The esoteric identify of Lemuria is Shalmali.
In accordance with Theosophists, existed in a big half of what’s now the Indian Ocean together with Australia and increasing into the South Pacific Ocean; its final remnants are the Australian continent, the island of New Guinea, and the island of Madagascar.
Trendy theosophists typically determine Lemuria with the precise historic super-continent of Gondwana. Others might check with it as “Mu”.
Lemuria sank progressively and was ultimately destroyed by incessantly erupting volcanoes.
In accordance with conventional Theosophy, the Lemurian root race started 34½ million years in the past, in the midst of what was then believed to be the Jurassic; thus, the individuals of Lemuria coexisted with the dinosaurs.
The early third root-race was hermaphrodite or androgynous
and described as an enormous Human Cyclops Race.
The Lemurians have been the primary with bodily our bodies. They have been described as a race of three eyed giants and inhabited a “lost continent” of Lemuria.
The primary three sub-races of the Lemurians reproduced by laying eggs, however the fourth sub-race, starting 16½ million years in the past, started to breed like trendy people.
The Lemurians have been endowed with a 3rd eye on the prime of the top. It was in reality the primary eye. The 2 entrance eyes creating later. It’s also often known as the attention of Shiva, the knowledge eye, or the deva eye.
It was initially an organ of each bodily and religious imaginative and prescient. With the event of more and more materials our bodies and the separation of the sexes, the attention started to lose its energy. It regularly petrified and eventually disappeared from the outward anatomy of people in the midst of the third sub-race of the Atlanteans.
The third eye of the Cyclops has been absorbed over time into the mind.
Some describe the third cyclops eye to be the Pineal Gland of the mind or what immediately is called the “Third Eye” of recent people.
As Lemuria was slowly submerged as a result of volcanic eruptions, the Lemurians colonized the areas surrounding Lemuria, resembling Africa, Southern India and the East Indies.
The fourth root race (Atlantean)
This race inhabited Atlantis.
The fourth root race, the Atlanteans begins with a race of two eyed Big People, starting about 60 ft tall then reducing to 30-20 ft tall, which acquired progressively smaller till they reached trendy Human measurement.
In line with Theosophy, the Atlantean’s arose roughly four,500,000 years in the past in Africa from the fourth sub-race of the Lemurians in part of Africa that had been colonized by that sub-race within the space now inhabited by the Ashanti.
In response to Theosophists the primary Atlantean sub-race was the results of the final, or seventh Lemurian subrace Chankshusha Manu which migrated first to the south of the Atlantean continent and, from there, migrated additional north. The esoteric identify of Atlantis is Kusha.
The Atlantean root race had Mongolian options; they started with bronze pores and skin and progressively advanced into the purple American Indian, brown Malayan, and yellow Mongolian races, as a result of some Atlanteans ultimately migrated to the Americas and Asia.
The seven sub-races of the Atlantean root race have been:
- Tlavati (Cro-Magnons)
- Toltec(a time period which Theosophists use as a synonym for the Atlantean ancestors of the American Indians)
- unique Semites(i.e. Phoenicians)
- Mongolian, which migrated to and colonized Central AsiaEast Asia and Southeast Asia.
The descendants of the Atlanteans based on conventional Theosophy embrace these of the Mongolian race, the Malayan race, and the American Indian race in addition to some individuals of what within the late 19th and early 20th centuries was referred to as the “olive-skinned” Mediterranean race.
The civilization of Atlantis
Through the lengthy time period when Atlantis was dominated by the Toltecs (the ancestors of the Amerindians), the civilization of Atlantis was at its peak.
This was the interval between about 1,000,000 and 900,000 years in the past, referred to as the Golden Age of Atlantis. The Atlanteans had many luxuries and conveniences. Their capital metropolis was referred to as The Metropolis of the Golden Gates. At its peak, it had two million inhabitants.
There have been in depth aqueducts resulting in the town from a mountain lake. The Atlanteans had airships powered by the vril that would seat two to eight individuals.
The downfall of Atlantis began when a few of the Toltecs started to apply black magic about 850,000 BC, corrupted by the dragon “Thevetat”, remembered as Devadatta, the opponent of Buddha.
The individuals started to grow to be egocentric and materialistic. Quickly thereafter, the Turanians (the ancestors of the individuals we now know because the Turkic peoples) turned dominant in a lot of Atlantis.
The Turanians continued the apply of black magic which reached its peak about 250,000 BC and continued till the ultimate sinking of Atlantis, though they have been opposed by white magicians.
The Grasp Morya incarnated because the Emperor of Atlantis in 220,000 BC to oppose the black magicians. The black magicians used magical spells to breed human-animal chimeras to make use of as intercourse slaves.
Additionally they had a military composed of chimeras that have been composites composed of a human physique with the heads of fierce predators similar to lions, tigers and bears, that ate enemy corpses on the battlefield.
The struggle between the white magicians and the black magicians continued till the top of Atlantis. The Masters of the Historic Knowledge telepathically warned their disciples (the white magicians) to flee Atlantis in ships whereas there was nonetheless time to get out earlier than the ultimate cataclysm.
The Atlantean continent was steadily sinking “while the new America was forming”. Ultimately, it left behind a number of islands, the larger of which was Poseidonis, talked about by Plato in his writings.
The fifth root race (Aryan)
Blavatsky asserted humanity was within the fifth root race, or Indo-European humanity turned a definite root-race about a million years in the past in Central Asia, and like all main new races, acquired steerage from divine instructors. Since then, a collection of migrations have taken place, and lots of civilizations have come and gone.
We at the moment are approaching the center of the fifth race. The European inventory of races, with their extremely developed bodily intellectuality, is presently in its Kali-Yuga or Darkish Age. This age of speedy materials progress will final for an additional 427,000 years.
The current-day ethnic group most intently associated to the brand new race is the Kabyle. The small band of solely 9,000 individuals constituting the then small Aryan root race migrated out of Atlantis in 79,797 BC.
The bards of the brand new white root-race poetically referred to the brand new race as being moon-colored. A small group of those Aryan migrants from Atlantis cut up from the primary physique of migrants and went south to the shore of an inland sea in what was then a verdant and plush Sahara the place they based the “City of the Sun”.
The primary physique of migrants continued on wards to an island referred to as the “white island” in the midst of what was then an inland sea in what’s now the Gobi Desert, the place they established the “City of the Bridge”.
(The “City of the Bridge” was constructed immediately under the etheric metropolis referred to as Shamballa the place Theosophists consider the governing deity of Earth, Sanat Kumara, dwells; thus, the continued evolution of the Aryan root race has been divinely guided by the being Theosophists name “The Lord of the World”.)
The esoteric identify of the entire of the current land floor of Earth, i.e. the World Island, the Americas, the Australian continent and Antarctica taken as an entire is Krauncha.
The seeds of the sixth root-race are already being sown, largely within the Americas, and can develop into pretty quite a few in the direction of the top of our Kali-Yuga.
Sub-races of the Aryan root race
The constituent “sub-races” of the Aryan (fifth or current) Root Race embrace the next:
1) Hindus – Hindu
2) Sumerians – Arabian
three) Egyptians – Persian
four) Hellenes (Greeks & Romans) Celts
5) Europeans – Teutonic
6) Nova males – Australo-American sub-race
7) Indigo Youngsters & Star Youngsters – seventh sub
Blavatsky described the fifth root race with the next phrases: “The Aryan races, as an example, now various from darkish brown, virtually black, red-brown-yellow, right down to the whitest creamy color, are but all of 1 and the identical inventory – the Fifth Root-Race – and spring from one single progenitor, which Hindus name Manu. Theosophists consider that every root race has a separate and distinct progenitor.
The fifth spherical will see the complete improvement of manas (thoughts), the sixth of buddhi (intuitive knowledge), and the seventh of atman (the inside divinity). If we make the grade efficiently, we will turn into Buddhas on the finish of the sixth spherical, and dhyani-chohans on the finish of the seventh. We will then have an ovoid type, of refined religious substance, like a garment of dazzling mild.
The Sixth Root Race – SEAL
In line with Blavatsky the sixth sub-race of the Aryan root race will start to evolve within the space of america within the early 21st century.
This sixth sub-race of the Aryan root race will probably be referred to as the Australo-American sub-race and is believed by Theosophists to be now arising from the Teutonic sub-race of the Aryan root race in Australia and within the Western United States.
Many people of the brand new sub-race might be born in California) and its surrounding close by areas (i.e., the Australo-American sub-race is in arising from the Anglo-American, Anglo-Canadian, Anglo-Australian and presumably additionally the Anglo-New Zealander ethnic teams).
The sixth or Australo-American sub-race will “possess sure psychic powers, and for this the pituitary physique can be developed, thus giving a further sense, that of cognising astral feelings within the odd waking consciousness.
We might say that typically the sixth sub-race will usher in knowledge and instinct, mixing all that’s greatest within the intelligence of the fifth sub-race and the emotion of the fourth.”
The Seventh Root Race – TRUMPET
The final seventh Race could have its religious deity, or Buddha for instance, as each considered one of its predecessors had; however, its adepts shall be far larger than any of the current race, for amongst them will abide the longer term Planetary, the Dhyan Chohan whose obligation it is going to be to instruct or “refresh the memory” of the primary race of the fifth-Spherical males after this planet’s future obscuration.
By the center of the Seventh Race, says an occult prophecy, the wrestle of the 2 conflicting Powers (Buddhi and Kama-Manas) may have virtually died out. Every little thing that’s irredeemably sinful and depraved, merciless and damaging, may have been eradicated, and that which is discovered to outlive might be swept away from being.
Within the seventh Root Race, humanity will fuse thoughts and instinct with Atma, the inside Religious Self, and can then be capable of perform consciously because the Greater Self, the Religious Triad of Atma-Buddhi-Manas.
This improvement and development will, within the far distant future, ultimately come about naturally for humanity.
All sexual distinction will then have ceased to exist, and conception and start will happen in a completely religious approach.
We’re at present solely midway by means of the progress of our planetary scheme and that the majestic climax and supreme apotheosis of humanity is just not destined to happen till the top of the seventh Root Race of the seventh spherical of the seventh Globe of the seventh chain billions of years from now.
We will simply see that the top is not any the place in sight for the human race and the world won’t be destroyed, regardless of the multitude of doomsayers who insist that it’ll.
Any obvious finish is merely a brand new starting and the Divine Plan and Function shall keep it up unabated, because the infinite ages roll on.
On the finish of the Seventh Root Race (Trumpet) the Human interval of exercise on Earth will stop, the decrease rules of the earth chain will die and disintegrate. An extended planetary interval of relaxation will start. The Human Life-Wave will then switch to Mars (Globe E).
After this era of nirvana, we will grow to be the guides of the humanity and decrease entities on the subsequent embodiment of the earth chain.
Just like trendy literature, the grasp’s have additionally typically used the Yuga measured as hundreds of years and different occasions as hundreds of thousands of years. There isn’t any rationalization that I’ve discovered to elucidate the distinction.
Clearly, and certainly, Man “evolved”, each in soul and bodily physique, over a particularly lengthy size of time, many hundreds of thousands of years.
If one makes use of the size of time within the tens of millions of years as size of time of the Yugas, then the reason of HPB appears very affordable and matches, intently, trendy anthropology, and geology.
The “SECRET DOCTRINE” is an unimaginable work. It’s virtually unimaginable that a single individual might have researched and written it. HPB claims that it was telepathically given to her by the grasp’s and that appears a transparent rationalization as to how she wrote such an extended and sophisticated e-book it in so brief a time period. She has my respect.
The primary purpose of the Theosophical Society Blavatsky based is “To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color”, and her writings additionally embrace references emphasizing the unity of humanity: “all men have spiritually and physically the same origin” and that “mankind is essentially of one and the same essence”.
One factor that has not been made clear is that as a star, any star, ages it goes via totally different levels of being hotter or colder, smaller or bigger. As that happens the “Goldilocks Zone” strikes from planet to planet and evolution repeats itself on every planet.
Older civilizations know this and subsequently wait till a given race has advanced to the fifth, sixth or seventh stage of improvement earlier than they’re allowed to hitch the group of varied civilizations from numerous photo voltaic methods inside any given galaxy.
We people have merely not but reached that stage of improvement. However we’re getting shut.
