Mamo-Chohan

(Lords) of Darkness. Helena P. BLAVATSKY states, in a letter to Alfred P. SINNETT (ML, p. 96), that they preside over the pralaya periods, i.e., periods when the universe is withdrawn from manifestation (manvāntara), hence they “will never belong to the ‘builders of the universe.’” She states that they are personifications of the destructive power of Śiva and that “their Law is darkness, ignorance, destruction etc.” in contrast to the DHYĀNI CHOHANS, whose Law “is Light, knowledge and creation.” The portion of her letter which includes that discussion was, she says, dictated to her by the Master MORYA.
