Now cometh the glory of the Single One, as an imperfection and stain.


Tao Tao Yin



But by the Weak One the Mother was it equilibrated.


Tao Yang Tao



 Also the purity was divided by Strength, the force of the Demiurge.


Tao Yin Tao



And the Cross was formulated in the Universe that as yet was not.


Yang Tao Tao



But now the Imperfection became manifest, presiding over the fading of perfection.


Yin Tao Tao



Also the Woman arose, and veiled the Upper Heaven with her body of stars.


Tao Yang Yang



Now then a giant arose, of terrible strength; and asserted the Spirit in a secret rite.


Tao Yang Yin



And the Master of the Temple balancing all things arose; his stature was above the Heaven and below Earth and Hell.


Tao Yin Yang



Against him the Brothers of the Left-hand Path, confusing the symbols.

They concealed their horror [in this symbol]; for in truth they were Yin Yang Tao


Tao Yin Yin



The master flamed forth as a star and set a guard of Water in every Abyss.


Yang Tao Yang



Also certain secret ones concealed the Light of Purity in themselves, protecting it from the Persecutions.


Yang Tao Yin

Yin Tao Yang



But the Enemy confused them. They pretended to conceal that Light, that they might betray it, and profane it.


Yin Tao Yin

Yang Yang Tao

Yang Yin Tao



 Yea, and there arose sensualists upon the firmament, as a foul stain of storm upon the sky.


Yin Yang Tao



 And the Black Brothers raised their heads; yea, they unveiled themselves without shame or fear.


Yin Yin Tao



 Also there rose up a soul of filth and of weakness, and it corrupted all the rule of the Tao.


Yang Yang Yang



 Then only was Heaven established to bear sway; for only in the lowest corruption is form manifest.


Yang Yang Yin



 Also did Heaven manifest in violent light,


Yang Yin Yang



And in soft light.


Yin Yang Yang



 Then were the waters gathered together from the heaven,


Yang Yin Yin



 And a crust of earth concealed the core of flame.


Yin Yang Yin



 Around the globe gathered the wide air,


Yin Yin Yang



 And men began to light fires upon the earth.


Yin Yin Yin


 Therefore was the end of it sorrow; yet in that sorrow a sixfold star of glory whereby

they might see to return unto the stainless Abode; yea, unto the Stainless Abode.
