Metaphysical meaning of Ladan (mbd)
Ladan (A. V., Laadan), la'-dan (Heb.)--set in order; festive; harmonious; pleasurable; delightful; adorned; for a witness.

a An Ephraimite, from whom Joshua was descended (I Chron. 7:26). b Son of Gershon, of the Levites (I Chron. 23:7). In I Chronicles 6:17 this latter Ladan is called Libni.

Meta. The individual will working constructively, with love and with the innate religious tendencies. (One Ladan was an Ephraimite, and Ephraim represents the will faculty in man. The other Ladan was a descendant of Levi, who signifies the love faculty; the Levites in their office of ministering spiritually to the people stand for the innate religious tendencies and activities of individual consciousness.) The Ladan attitude of mind always tends to bring about great joy and gladness (festive, pleasurable, delightful) by means of establishing harmony and order in the consciousness (set in order, harmonious). Festive also suggests feasting, an inner realization of substance. In thus entering a consciousness of Truth one becomes a witness to Truth (for a witness).
