Perhaps it may faintly be cognised if we take it that Parabrahman is not
action as such. Parabrahman is cause of action [motion]. Without such
there would be no action and therefore no Karma, which is action or that
which is the result of the first cause.
Karma is the law of Harmony [Love] in the manifested Universe. If
dis-harmony results it has to be adjusted. But it is the adjustment of
spiritually infused matter which is made, back in line with harmony or
original motion, not the universal cause or first motion on the first plane
of trinity. As we are told it is an immutable Law or first principle and
Parabrahman - the Absolute All and One, cannot be conceived as standing in
any relation to things finite and conditioned. SDIII. HPB.
The Boundless, the infinite and One Unity, secondless and causeless as
Parabrahman. SDIII. HPB.
Absolute eternal motion, Parabrahman, which is nothing and everything,
motion inconceivably rapid, in this motion throws off a film which is
Energy, Eros. It thus transforms itself to M laprakrity, primordial
Substance which is still Energy. This Energy, still transforming itself in
its ceaseless and inconceivable motion, becomes the Atom, or rather the germ
of the Atom, and then it is on the Third Plane. SDIII. HPB.
Parabrahman. Undifferentiated substance. Literal translation: "The root of
Nature or Matter." (LHR I, p 448)
Parabrahm is not a God but absolute immutable law. (Mahatma Letters, p 52)
I seek to emphasize here the fact that in this threefold manifestation there
is a ninefold unfoldment. It should ever be borne in mind that seven is the
number which governs the evolution of substance and of form building in the
solar system, but that nine is the number governing the development of the
consciousness within that form of the psyche. This is seen in the sevenfold
display of logoic life through the planetary scheme, and the ninefold nature
of egoic unfoldment.If the student here substitutes for the words, Monad,
Ego and personality, the three aspects of the Logos, and will bear in mind
that as yet all that he can ascertain or cognize is the lowest of the logoic
manifestations - the personality - it will be apparent why so much must
remain mysterious to even the higher grades of initiates, and why even the
perfected Dhyan Chohan cannot penetrate the secrets of the Logos outside His
system. 89 They  can cognize much concerning Agni, the Lord of Fire,
but until They can contact that of which He is an emanation, a reflection or
a ray, there is a limit to what may be known. 89 H.P.B. in the Secret
Doctrine refers to "...the solution of the riddle... before which even the
highest Dhyan Chohan must bow in silence and ignorance - the Unspeakable
Mystery of that which is called by the Vedantins, Parabrahman." TCF. AAB.
