Daleth is the path
of the fertile relationship between the ultimate male principle,
the perfectly manifestated energy of Chokmah,
and the ultimate female principle, the great womb of Binah.
It is the path of love
and fertility as such,
the process giving rise to the entire manifested universe.
Daleth means "door",
the door between the state of unity in the Supernal triangle
and the manifested states below, the gate into Spirit's harmonious Garden
of Eden that seperates
it from the realms of division, polarity and self-consciousness,
a door between known and unknown. The Goddess of Love shown on
the tarot trump can be interpreted as Eve after the Fall.
Love at this level
of the Tree does not mean projection and desire as can be experienced
at the level of Netzach. The love
of the Empress which is flowing through Daleth is the most exalted
creative imagination and inspiration
(wisdom-folly) that nurtures, combines and gives birth to the
archetypical ideas of Chesed.

|Chakra symbols (Sir John Woodroffe)
||"The Anja Chakra has two petals and is white.
The letters Ha and Ksa, which are white (Karbura, also means
variegated), are on the two petals.
The presiding Shakti of the Chakra, Hakini, is on the pericarp.
She is white, has six red-coloured faces ech with three eyes,
and six arms, and is seated on a white lotus. With her hands
She displays Vara-mudra and Abhaya-mudra (the mudras granting
boons and dispelling fear), and holds a Rudraksa rosary, a human
skull, a small drum, and a book.
Above her, within a Trikona, is Itara-Linga, which is lightning-like,
and above this again, within another Trikona, is the inner Atma
(Antar-atma), lustrous like a flame.
On its four sides, floating in air, are sparks surrounding a
light which by its own lustre makes visible all between Mula
and the Brahmarandhra.
Above this, again, is Manas, and above Manas, in the region of
the Moon, is Hamsah, wihtin whom is Parama-Shiva with His Shakti."
