Edition of 350. Image size: 21 5/8" X 28".

The esoteric (Ageless Wisdom) tradition holds that behind all manifestation, eternal and changeless, stands the One, the Source of all. In the course of manifestation, the One becomes Three and the Three become Seven. Thus the emergence of the Trinities: in Christianity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; in Hinduism, Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma; the threefold constitution of Man: Spirit (or Atma), Soul (Buddhi) and Intelligence or Mind (Manas); the Seven Rays of manifestation — three of Aspect, four of Quality; the seven colours, three being Primary, four Secondary; The Seven Spirits before the Throne of God.
