- Abhâmsi: (Sanskrit), A mystic name of the “four orders of beings”: gods, demons, pitris and men.
Orientalists somehow connect the name Abhâmsi, with “waters”. However, esoteric philosophy connects its symbolism with Akâsa—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.
