Abhâmsi (Sk.अभाम्सि). A mystic name of the “four orders of beings” which are, Gods, Demons, Pitris(पितृ) and Men. Orientalists somehow connect the name with “waters”, but esoteric philosophy connects its symbolism with Akâsa(आकाश)—the ethereal “waters of space”, since it is on the bosom and on the seven planes of “space” that the “four orders of (lower) beings” and the three higher Orders of Spiritual Beings are born. (See Secret Doctrine I. p. 458, and “Ambhâmsi”(अभाम्सि).)
