Truth about Creation

Bobbie Carlyle’s “Self-Made Man” Sculpture

Creation is only the projection into form of that which already exists.

The atoms of the universe may be counted, but not so my manifestations; for eternally I create innumerable worlds.

Srimad Bhagwatam 111.2, x1.10

“In use it can never be exhausted”

Tao Te Ching

As milk is spontaneously changed into curd and water into ice, So Brahma modifies Itself in diverse ways, without the aid of instruments or external means of any kind whatever. Thus spider spins its web out of its substance, subtle beings take diverse forms, and the lotus grows from marsh to marsh without organs of locomotion.

Brahma Sutra 11.1

The yon is fulness; fulness, this. From fulness, fulness doth proceed. With drawing fulness’s fulness off, e’en fulness then itself remains.

Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

There is no existence for the unreal and the real can never be non-existent. The seers of Truth know the nature and final ends of both. Know That to be indestructible by which all this pervaded. No one is ever able to destroy that Immutable, These bodies are perishable; but the dwellers in these bodies are eternal, indestructible and impenetrable, Therefore fight O descendant of Bharata.

He who considers this Self as a slayer or he who thinks that this Self is slain neither of these knows the Truth. For it does not slay, nor is It Slain. This self is not born, nor does It die, nor after once having seen, does It go into non-being. This self is unborn, eternal, changeless, ancient. It is never destroyed even when the body is destroyed.

Srimad Bhagawad Geeta 11.16-20
