Supernal Triad, Deity above all essence, . . . direct our path to the ultimate summit of Thy mystical Lore, most incomprehensible, most luminous and most exalted, where the pure, absolute and immutable mysteries of theology are veiled in the dazzling obscurity of the secret Silence, outshining all brilliance with the intensity of their Darkness, and surcharging our blinded intellects with the utterly impalpable and invisible fairness of glories surpassing all beauty.
— Dionysius the Areopagite 1
Stripped of personification and allegory, the Bhagavad-Gita, Narada Bhakti Sutra, Light on the Path, and Voice of the Silence, speak with ONE VOICE, the Voice of the originally feminine Logoi, for example, the Chinese Kuan-yin (Divine Voice), the Egyptian Isis, the Hebrew Bath Kol (“daughter” of the Divine Voice), the Hindu Vach (Goddess of speech or “the melodious cow who milked forth sustenance and water”). 2
Logos is light on the path. It speaks to the mind’s ear with a “still small voice,” the voice of the silence. The eponymous books may have been attributed to different sources, still, together with The Secret Doctrine they share a common ancestry: the Book of the Golden Precepts which is part of the Books of Kiu-Te. 3 Because of the powerful imagery and mysticism of these magnificent texts, the verity in the title of this section may not be fully grasped. Therefore, extracts from Light on the Path and The Voice of the Silence have been put side by side against eight imagined questions regarding the nature of The Voice, so that no doubt can remain about their lofty lineage.
Other aspects, epithets, and synonyms of the “still small voice” in Gnostic tradition, Light on the Path and Voice of the Silence and are shown at the foot of this page.4
