HP Blavatsky on The Audible Life Stream

There's a new 2010 book out titled:

"The Audible Life Stream: Ancient Secret of Dying While Living"
by Alistair Conwell

For more info on book, see: http://tinyurl.com/2vxl6mk

The information in this book may help Theosophical students to
appreciate what is found in H.P.B.'s THE VOICE OF THE SILENCE,
especially Fragment I. Below I append selected extracts from this
Theosophical classic which deal with the subject matter of this book:

-----------------------

Before thou set'st thy foot upon the ladder's upper rung, the ladder of the
mystic sounds, thou hast to hear the voice of thy inner GOD in seven manners.

The first is like the nightingale's sweet voice chanting a song of parting to
its mate.

The second comes as the sound of a silver cymbal of the Dhyanis, awakening the
twinkling stars.

The next is as the plaint melodious of the ocean-sprite imprisoned in its shell.

And this is followed by the chant of Vina.

The fifth like sound of bamboo-flute shrills in thine ear.

It changes next into a trumpet-blast.

The last vibrates like the dull rumbling of a thunder-cloud.

The seventh swallows all the other sounds. They die, and then are heard no more.

When the six are slain and at the Master's feet are laid, then is the pupil
merged into the ONE, becomes that ONE and lives therein.

----------------------------------------------------------------

He who would hear the voice of Nada, "the Soundless Sound," and comprehend it,
he has to learn the nature of Dharana.

Unless thou hearest, thou canst not see.

Unless thou seest thou canst not hear. To hear and see this is the second stage.

. . . . . .

When the disciple sees and hears, and when he smells and tastes, eyes closed,
ears shut, with mouth and nostrils stopped; when the four senses blend and ready
are to pass into the fifth, that of the inner touch -- then into stage the
fourth he hath passed on.

And in the fifth, O slayer of thy thoughts, all these again have to be killed
beyond reanimation.

Withhold thy mind from all external objects, all external sights. Withhold
internal images, lest on thy Soul-light a dark shadow they should cast.

Thou art now in DHARANA, the sixth stage.

Fix thy Soul's gaze upon the star whose ray thou art, the flaming star that
shines within the lightless depths of ever-being, the boundless fields of the
Unknown.

Thy Soul-gaze centre on the One Pure Light.

When thou hast passed into the seventh, O happy one, thou shalt perceive no more
the sacred three, for thou shalt have become that three thyself. Thyself and
mind, like twins upon a line, the star which is thy goal, burns overhead. The
three that dwell in glory and in bliss ineffable, now in the world of Maya have
lost their names. They have become one star, the fire that burns but scorches
not, that fire which is the Upadhi of the Flame.

And this, O Yogi of success, is what men call Dhyana, the right precursor of
Samadhi.

And now thy Self is lost in SELF, thyself unto THYSELF, merged in THAT SELF from
which thou first didst radiate.

Where is thy individuality, Lanoo, where the Lanoo himself? It is the spark lost
in the fire, the drop within the ocean, the ever-present Ray become the all and
the eternal radiance.

And now, Lanoo, thou art the doer and the witness, the radiator and the
radiation, Light in the Sound, and the Sound in the Light.

And now, rest 'neath the Bodhi tree, which is perfection of all knowledge, for,
know, thou art the Master of SAMADHI -- the state of faultless vision.

Behold! thou hast become the light, thou hast become the Sound, thou art thy
Master and thy God. Thou art THYSELF the object of thy search: the VOICE
unbroken, that resounds throughout eternities, exempt from change, from sin
exempt, the seven sounds in one, the

VOICE OF THE SILENCE.
