Book of Fragapatti Chapter 15, Chapter 16
1. When the avalanza was made fast, and the hosts come forth, many of the
Zeredho’ans, fearing the brilliancy of the lights of Mouru, were permitted to go and
dwell a little way off; but the others, led by Fragapatti and Hoab, entered the capital
city, and came before the throne of Jehovih, greeted by Athrava and the Holy Council.
2. Athrava said: In the name of Jehovih, O Chief, greeting: And to thee, O Hoab. Come
ye, and honor the throne of Mouru.
3. Fragapatti said: Greeting to thee, Athrava; and to ye, most Holy Council, in the name
of our Father! Hoab said: Greeting, in Jehovih’s name!
4. And then Fragapatti and Hoab went forward and ascended the throne, and sat on
the left hand of Athrava. At once the Light from the etherean worlds began to fall
upon the throne, and even upon the whole Council, and the light was golden yellow, the
most sacred color, and brilliant. Hoab had never seen such before, and was overwhelmed
with fear and delight; but many of his hosts were obliged to hide their faces.
5. Presently the light condensed over the throne, even whilst three thousand
millions looked on, till like a very sun it stood above Fragapatti’s head. And then
came the Voice of the Almighty, Jehovih, out of the midst of the light. Jehovih said:
6. Hear the words of thy Creator, O man! I, Who created the corporeal and the es’ean
worlds! Behold the works of My hands! Who can find a place where I have not created!
7. Think not that I cannot also create a voice and words. For is this not easier than
to create a man who shall create words. Behold My corporeal suns amidst
My corporeal star-worlds! Behold My etherean suns amidst My es’sean worlds.
8. I made corporeal darkness, and I made corporeal light. I made spiritual darkness, and I
made spiritual light. But I am the Light of light. I am the Word of words.
9. As the wisdom of man inventeth words, so doth the light of My Light come in words to
them that can bear My Light.
10. Behold My wisdom, O man, in creating souls out of the substance of corporeal
darkness! Thus can their souls hear Me and not be afraid. But to them who become pure
souls, I come openly. Their throne becometh My throne! Their voice becometh My
voice. Their hosts look upon My throne, and My light shineth before My people.
11. Hear, then, thy Creator, O Zeredho. Thy people called to me in their darkness, but I
came not. Thy hand was upon them. Thou hadst said unto them: Behold my wide
countries; my mountains and valleys; my bright rivers and refreshing winds. Come ye;
they are yours to keep forever!
12. And because thy hand was upon them, they were beset with darkness; they could not
find their way out; neither beheld they more the glory of My kingdoms. Yea, thou
wert as a wanton going after My chosen, and thy voice luredest them away from Me!
13. But I spoke in Nirvana, high above, in My thrones of light. And My Sons and
Daughters heard My voice. I said unto them: Lo, the red star and her heavens are fallen in
darkness! Go ye to them and deliver them into a new resurrection.
14. Had I not spoken in the ancient days, saying: Inasmuch as ye raise up them that
are beneath you, so will I send them who are above down to you, to raise you up also.
15. But they forgot My words; neither strove they more to raise up them that were in
the hells below. And I said unto My Nirvanians: Go ye to Zeredho, for she hath enticed
My holy ones away from Me. And ye shall give them a parable of compensation
openly, and they shall come before My Light and hear My voice. For ye shall take them
to hell and cause them to deliver the drujas, through the light of My countenance;
and thereafter shall ye bring them to Mouru, that I may speak with them face to face.
16. Hear the commandments of your Creator, O ye Sons and Daughters of Zeredho, for
that which I give unto ye shall be inviolate. Which is, that ye shall have dominion over
the earth and her heavens for two hundred years, commencing at the close of this dawn of
17. And thou, O Hoab, shall be God over all the rest, and thou shalt be anointed with
power to raise up successors with power and wisdom. Be wise, O My children, and
profit ye in the wisdom of My etherean hosts whilst yet the dawn of dan remaineth.
18. The Voice ceased. Then spake Athrava, saying: In Thy name, O Jehovih, do I suspend
myself from Thy throne till it be the will of Fragapatti and Thy will also. And he
rose up and stood aside. Then Fragapatti went and sat in the midst of the throne.
19. Fragapatti said: I proclaim three days’recreation to the Holy Council, and to the city
of Mouru. Behold, my people shall mingle together as brothers and sisters, rejoicing in
the Light of the Father. Be ye joyful, singing and dancing. The ascent to Jehovih’s
kingdoms may be likened unto a ladder with steps, and not an even plain, and ye
shall call this the first step in the resurrection of the earth’s heavens in this dawn.
20. The hosts then mingled together, greeting and rejoicing, for the Zeredho’ans had long
desired to see the ethereans now dwelling in Mouru; and the ethereans were equally
desirous of seeing the atmosphereans. Consequently, there was great rejoicing and
1. When the time of recreation was ended, Fragapatti ascended the throne of Jehovih,
and signaled to the marshals to proclaim order and labor; and, at once, the vast multitude
took their places; and, in the same instant, the es’enaurs discoursed music, with anthems,
the which, when finished, was the signal for business, heavenly. Fragapatti said:
2. Again am I about to depart, and again to leave the God of Mouru, Athrava, with you.
And Hoab, and such of his hosts as I may choose, shall go with me. For, according to the
rank and glory of Gods, I must now deliver Hapacha and his kingdom of Ipseogee, raised
up from Guatama.
3. Thereupon, Fragapatti descended to the foot of the throne and sat down; and Athrava,
God of dawn of Mouru, came down and took him by the hand, in ancient manner, and
said: Behold, thou hast honored my throne, and the time of thy departure is upon thee.
Arise, then, O God, and go thy way.
4. And Fragapatti rose up and stood aside, and signaled for Hoab to go and be raised in
the same manner; the which he did, becoming wise in the behavior of Gods toward one
5. The marshals had filed fifty thousand attendants, besides ten thousand es’enaurs, and, at
a signal from Fragapatti, marched forth out of the capital, followed by the hosts of Hoab
and one hundred thousand ethereans.
6. And when they were once beyond the lights of Mouru, behold, some of the hosts of
Hoab rejoiced, because they were better pleased to be where there was less light. Yet
there were seven hundred millions of them who rejoiced not, but rather loved the light
7. Then Fragapatti said: It is well that not all are of one mind. The seven hundred millions
who love the light more, shall be my traveling companions to Ipseogee. Because they are
strong in light, I have work for them. But the others shall be taken back to Zeredho,
whither I will also come in due time.
8. And after they are settled in Zeredho, behold, I will send a God to them, and they shall
found a new kingdom, in Jehovih’s name. Let all hands, therefore, enter the avalanza,
9. At once the hosts entered the ship, and Fragapatti gave the word to be off, and they
sped forth direct for Zeredho, led by swift messengers who well knew the nearest route
and the lightest places. And the route taken was through the sea of Foo’witchah and the
Oram of Haiti.
10. Hardly had they gotten under way, when the light of the upper heavens began to
descend on Hoab, whose excitement, from the wondrous scenes, made him propitious
to the change; and, feeling the buoyancy of the light, he thus held forth, saying:
11. How could I forget Thee, O Jehovih? Or Thy purposes observe, and deny Thy
designs? How saw I not that at my quickening in my mother’s womb, I was the farthest
from Thee? And yet, even then, Thy breath was upon me!
12. And when Thou hadst fashioned me and badest me walk upright, Thou didst send Thy
angels to me, saying: Behold, Thy Creator liveth. Life of His Life thou art; flesh of His
Flesh created he thee. And He gave thee thyself in proof of Himself.
13. In the earth was I conceived; housed up in darkness; of Thyself built up; nor was I of
myself anything under the sun.
14. And Thou createdst the honey-bee, and bade him speak to me for mine own
benefit. He said: Behold me, O man! I am a worker. In a community I live with my
brothers and sisters. I shut my eyes to things sour and bitter, and I store my house
with sweet provender only. Soul of man, hear me! I am the voice of thy Creator.
Behold the harmony of mine house, and the provision I make for my newborn!
15. And Thou createdst the ant, and bade him speak to me for mine own benefit. He said:
Behold me, O man! I am a worker. In a community I live with my brothers and sisters.
Soul of man, hear me. I am the voice of thy Creator. Behold the industry of mine house,
and the burdens we bear jointly into our stores.
16. And Thou createdst the spider, and bade him speak to me. He said: Behold me,
O man! I am one with thy Creator. By the spirit of things I move; by the geometrical
figures of the unseen worlds I build mine house. Think not that I reason or take
lessons from other spiders; I take no lessons; I move by the spirit within me, and
it moveth in concert with the spirit of things without. Hear me, spirit of man! There
are two ways to knowledge before thee; one is by the soul of things, and one by reason.
17. And Thou heldest up before mine eyes continually that the unseen ruledest over the
seen. Then I became vain before Thee, O Jehovih! I said: When I am dead, and born a
spirit, then will I see the unseen, and cannot err more.
18. But lo, my folly in Thy sight! When I was risen in spirit, I saw the spirit of things; but,
alas, the soul laid still beyond. And to me the soul was now the unseen cause, and ruler
over the spirit.
19. Again Thy holy ones came from the etherean worlds, speaking to me, saying: And yet
beyond the soul cometh Nirvana.
20. Now have I beholden Thy crystal spheres, and Thy matchless glories. Yea, I look into
this sea of Foo’witchah, whither I had often gazed before, seeing nothing then; but now,
beholding ships laden with Gods and Goddesses from Thy Nirvanian fields, in higher
works and worlds moving.
21. And Thy Fire stirreth me to the soul, to expand to the mastery of these
atmospherean heavens. O that I could vent the hallowed glory Thou hast bestowed
upon me! O that I could thank Thee for the happiness I have because Thou createdest me!
22. O that I could open up the souls of men to behold Thy wondrous works, and the
majesty of becoming one with Thee, Thou Almighty, Jehovih! O that they would hear me
and believe! O that they would not turn away from Light! O that they could learn to
glorify Thee every day, for the little Light and little joy they receive! How like Gods and
Goddesses would they become in Thy kingdoms.
23. But they harbor discontent; they discourse on the little they have received from Thee.
Like the canker-worm, that groweth to devour, they feed their sorrows by recounting
them over and over. For pain they cry out; and for disappointment they weep. Yea,
they feed their own darkness with darkness, and in the end forget Thee, Thou All Light!
24. Hoab ceased, but gazed at the coursing ships in the atmospherean heavens;
whereupon Fragapatti said:
25. Behold Thy wisdom, O Jehovih! Whom Thou wouldst make strong, Thou hast made
to feel adversity’s sting. For the emergencies that lie ahead, Thou plannest Thy Gods to
run near the cliffs whereon millions perish.
26. Who can attain to know Thy wisdom, O Jehovih! Who can comprehend the millions
of millions of Thy Sons and Daughters! And yet Thou knowest every one, and carriest
them by a breath, so gently they feel Thee not, nor know Thee. To a very hair’s breadth
Thou takest them; and in the time of desperation, Thy hand cometh to the rescue of the
27. Man saith: Now will I fortify myself with riches and houses, and all manner of
possessions; adversity shall not come upon me; I have more faith in my possessions than
in Jehovih. Mine is a kingdom I can see; but Jehovih is afar off.
28. But Thou art suffering him, in his vanity, to go away from Thee for a season. Sooner
or later Thou bringest him in with a short turn; either on earth or in heaven. And he goeth
down as an example to hundreds and to thousands that envied him.
29. Thou hast set up the poor man in faith; he toileth day and night; he is weary and sore;
he crieth out with hunger; his rags are a shame to him; but he remembereth Thee, O
Jehovih! In Thy praise he singeth a song in his soul every day. To do good unto others is
his great delight.
30. And Thy hand reacheth down to him in time after; his soul is like a giant. Thou hast
planned him for a very God in heaven!
31. The spark of faith that was in him he nurtured, and it became as a mighty tree that fell
not down before the blast. The good he received he exalted, and it fructified and grew as a
harvest in rich soil; and he stood mighty in all places.
32. In Thy praise are his songs, and they endure forever; his psalms are the voice of
Thy loves; and the multitude of Thy people remember him, whilst all else are cut
down and destroyed. Thy work hath a sure foundation; Thy Wisdom standeth before
man’s wisdom; not one hath found a failure in Thy word, as it speaketh to his own soul.
33. Thy labor is from the subtle and unseen; Thy footstool the cause of causes. But the
vain man looketh to Thy object; he turneth Thy ways upside down; he maketh the cart to
push the horse. And Thou sufferest him to drink to the fill of his own vanity; and when he
runneth himself into torments, Thou findest a way to reach him and bring him home to
34. Great is his glory when he findeth Thee; his voice becometh the love of Thy loves
forever! For Thou hadst shaped him as an example, and given him scope to run his
extreme, for his own glory. Yea, Thou hadst planned him for one of Thy great workers,
that would not go down afterward.
