Chapter 3 – The Monad

1. Video – HPB tells us, “The [word] monad is from Greek, [meaning] “One,” the unit, whatever it is…. Ātman in reality is not a unit, but the one universal Principle, and it is simply a ray … which uses buddhi as a vehicle…. Therefore, in reality it is buddhi which is the monad, the one unit.” (SD Commentaries, p. 566)
