  1. The seven Spirits before the Throne find their originating incentive on the cosmic lower mental levels, the logoic Jewel in the Lotus and the cosmic Atmic plane.

  1. The seven Heavenly Men are in the line of force from the cosmic Astral plane, the Logoic nine-petalled lotus and the cosmic Buddhic plane, the seven Rishis of the Great Bear.

  1. The seven Sons of Fohat find their vital force emanating from the cosmic Physical plane, the Logoic permanent atom and the higher cosmic mental levels.

Yet these three are but the expressions of the One Existence, for behind the Logos in physical incarnation is to be found the Logoic Monad, expressing Itself through the Logoic Ego, and its reflection, the Logoic Personality.

Man must learn to construct thought-forms, which he builds of mental matter and vitalizes by desire, and which he holds within his aura, thus constructing a tiny system of his own.  Both man and the Heavenly Men, work in Deva substance, both cooperate with the Devas, both manifest will, psychic quality and intelligent activity as they pursue their work but a difference lies, not only in degree but in consciousness.

The subject of our consideration now is the fire Devas of the Physical plane, those great building Devas who are working out the purposes of the Logos in His dense physical body.  

Agnichaitans:  Ruled by the Raja-Lord Kshiti, these are the Devas who build in matter of the densest kind, functioning on the seventh subplane of the cosmic Physical plane.  

Agnisuryans:  Ruled by the Raja-Lord Varuna, these are the builders on the sixth subplane of the cosmic Physical plane, our systemic Astral plane.  They represent the sympathetic nervous system in the Logoic physical body, just as their brothers of the seventh vibration represent the sumtotal of the circulatory system.

Agnishvattas:  Ruled by Agni, they are the builders on the fifth or gaseous subplane of the cosmic physical, our systemic Mental plane.  They are the builders of the body of consciousness and have a close connection with the physical brain, the seat of the Thinker.  



The sumtotal of Physical plane substance, divided into two parts; the four Ethers and the concrete lower three.  These become the forty-nine through the subdivisions of the seven subplanes of the dense Physical plane.

The Agnichaitans are concerned with:  

  1. The force or energy of physical substance, that electrical aspect which produces activity.  

  1. The construction of forms, producing the union of negative and positive substance and thus bringing into being all that can be seen and touched.  

  1. The internal heat of substance which nourishes and causes reproduction, forming the purely Mother aspect.

These three groups are subdivided again into seven groups which form the matter of each subplane, viewing that matter as the body of manifestation of one of the seven Devas through whom the Raja-Lord of the plane is manifesting.  These seven groups are again divided into seven, making the forty-nine.  The three groups function as follows:

Group A:  On the first subplane, the first Etheric subplane, they are the sumtotal of atomic matter of the Physical plane.

Group B:  On the second, third and fourth Etheric subplanes.  They are the substance of those planes, the transmitters of prana and that through which prana flows to the most concrete aspects of the dense Physical plane.

Group C:  On the lowest three subplanes, they are the Devas who are the essences of all that is tangible, visible and objective.
