Pleroma (πλήρωμα, plḗrōma) is a Greek term that means fullness. It generally refers to the totality of divine powers, and is used in Christian theological contexts, mainly in Gnosticism.

H. P. Blavatsky wrote:

The Plêrôma or Plenum must be distinguished from Mûlaprakriti. The Plerôma is infinite manifestation in manifestation, the Jagad Yoni or Golden Egg: Mûlaprakriti is an abstraction, the Root of the Jagad Yoni, the Womb of the Universe, or the Egg of Brahmâ. The Plerôma is, therefore, Chaos.[1]
