(image text) Amen, you are the lord of the beginning. Amen, you are the star of the East. Amen, you are the flower that blooms over everything.
Amen, you are the deer that breaks out of the forest. Amen, you are the song that sounds far over the water. Amen, you are the beginning and the end.
(book footnote) In “Dreams”, Jung noted on January 3, 1917: “In Lib. Nov. snake image III incent” [stimulus to snake image III in ‘Liber Novus’]. This notation appears to refer to this image. Image legend: brahmanaspati.” Julius Eggling notes that “Brihaspati or Brahmanaspati, the lord of prayer or worship, takes the place of Agni, as the representative, of the priestly dignity … Brihaspati is said to have found (avindat) the dawn, the sky and the fire (agni), and to have chased away the darkness with his light (arka, sun), he seems rather to represent the element of light and fire generally.”
