Who are called the Seven Brothers of Fire?

Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.

But it’s written that Fohat, the Flame that emanates from Osiris-Isis, unfolds in its turn into the SEVEN RADICALS, into the SEVEN IGNEOUS BROTHERS WHO ARE WITHIN OURSELVES, here and now.

The first one is the Physical; another is the Vital; third, the Igneous Principles of the Astral; the fourth, those of the Mental; the fifth, those of the Causal; the sixth, Buddhi; and seventh, Atman, the Ineffable. But the Seven Brothers of Fire, in turn, split into a group Ineffable Beings. This group exists within each one of us, they are the Autonomous and Self-conscious parts of our own Being, here and now.

Samael Aun Weor. The Seven Radicals of the Fire


Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".

The Septenary Constitution of man is as follows:

1.- Physical Body, it is the only one we accept because we can see, touch, feel and smell it.
2.- Vital Body, is the aura of every human being, already photographed by the Kirlian camera, the Russians give it the name of bioplastic body.
3.- The astral body, is the one we use in dreams, it is called astral because it floats like the stars.
4.- The mental body or the thoughts, we all have thoughts.
5.- The body of the will or causal, the one that moves us to do things, (work, studies, sports, etc.)
6.- The body of consciousness or Buddhi, the one that activates remorse when we want to act badly.
7.- The body of the Intimate, of the Being, Atman, the one that impels us to do the will of the Father.

Well, these seven bodies, each one, have their seven igneous principles, symbolized by seven flaming serpents, which, as has been said, are inert, fallen, which we must raise through conscious work and voluntary suffering, making use of the wise use of our creative energies and the good use of the verb. These seven bodies, already with their serpents raised, in theosophy (the science of God), are given the name of the seven brothers of fire.
