The Letters of H. P. Blavatsky to A. P. Sinnett

Letter No. 117

The numbers of the groups of Dhyan Chohans around the Circle "Pass Not," is 1, 3, 5, 1, & 4, and also 3, 1, 4, 1, 5; or when left running without separation they read 13514, and 31415. In both cases it is twice seven, for read whatever way, it will be 14 (when individually additioned). Now, astronomically, I am told it is the numerical value of a circumference of a circle whose diameter is one, or the value of pi whatever it means! Please see what it means, when used in astronomical tables. Also what is the meaning of "constant co-efficient" when used by astronomers. I am given things of which I have no more idea than of the mathematical value of my "children." Funny that AL'HIM (Elohim) should also yield that very same number, without ciphers. Thus Hebrew A(a) is 1; Hebrew L(l) is 3; Hebrew H(h) is 5; ' (i or jodh) is 1 (o); and Hebrew M (m) is 4 (or 40). That yields exactly 13514, or anagrammatically, by the Themura method it may be written 31415 — the blessed pi of which I know nothing. Do you, being a pundit? Please answer clearly — or else I am stuck again.
