Weaving and turning, shaping and gathering, even until there arose from out of the golden streams, seven women clothed in silver light; being themselves naked and unadorned by anything save virtue only; being themselves most beautiful and rare; and the names of the seven were: Wisdom, Benevolence, Faith, Justice, Fortitude, Beauty and Harmony.
Summary: “Beauty” is the name of one of the seven living reflections of Areta, the Supreme Mother of Heaven. The seven emanations of Areta are referred to as the Azurgai, which exist as sovereign and living personifications brought forth to reflect the purest essence of the Supreme Mother. The Azurgai are represented by seven women of virtue. Each of their names are associated with the virtue they reflect: Wisdom, Benevolence, Faith, Justice, Fortitude, Beauty and Harmony (5:3:19-27).
Each of the Azurgai served as surrogate mothers of the Ahgendai (5:3:52-63; 5:7:21-26). The seven virtues personified by the Azurgai are also designated as the pillars of holiness and exaltation (W:26:34-37), from which the seven dispensations of God are derived (4:6:13-56).
