Angels

In the original Greek, the term denotes a messenger; one who announces or tells, as with the bards of augury. In theosophical terminology “angels” has a general meaning denoting a spiritual being that could be a nature spirit or a god, depending on context. According to Helena P. BLAVATSKY, “atom” was meant by the ancient initiates to denote a soul or angel (SD I:107). “Solar Angels” denotes MANAS, or the human soul (SD II:88). An angel is therefore a spirit that is, was or will be human (SD I:277).

See also DEVAS.
