Friends, the creation has been specifically described in the Puranas. Somewhere the egg explodes in the sky, somewhere the lotus appears in the baseless water body and the sudden appearance of a deity on it, etc. Somewhere it comes that the direct appearance of intellect from nature, ego from intellect, the subtle experience of natural elements from ego, the senses from it and all the gross creation was born from senses afterwards. When I was younger, I used to ask my grandfather (who was a famous Hindu priest and a household Purana reader) how all of these things suddenly appeared in the open sky without any basic infrastructure. He used to say in the manner of a traditionalist and mystic philosopher, “This is how it is done. It is done.” They did not go too deeply. But now with the help of Kundalini Yoga, I understand this classical dictum as the root of all mysteries, “Yatpinde Tatbramhande”. This philosophical saying has been scientifically proven in the book “Shareervigyan darshan” in Hindi. This means that whatever is there in this body, that everything is also in the universe, nothing else. Actually, a man can never know anything other than his mind or brain, because whatever he describes that’s there inside his brain, not outside. That is why the ancient sages have explained the universe by describing the body. They were amazing body scientists and psychologists.
The creation of universe is explained in the Puranas with help of human body creation
At many places, a lotus was born from the navel of Vishnu that was lying on a great serpent swimming in the endless ocean, on which Brahma originated. His mind created the world. You can consider mother as Vishnu. His body is like a Sheshnag or mythical serpent as the central nervous system, which is located in the spinal cord-brain axis. The serpent is always immersed in the cerebrospinal fluid that’s metaphorically related to the ocean water. The sensations of the Kundalini or mother’s mind in that serpent are the form of Lord Vishnu that are dispersed throughout the body of serpent, because there is essentially no difference between Shakti and the powerful God. During pregnancy, the belly of the mother emerges outside in the navel area, the same is the appearance of the lotus from the navel of Lord Vishnu. The gravid uterus is also connected with the mother’s body through blood vessels and nerves arising nearby the mother’s navel area. These are as stem of lotus. Like the lotus petals blooming, in the womb, the placentomes and cotyledons of placenta are formed on the uterus. These button like structures are then again attached to the navel of the infant with a chord called umbilical chord that’s again like stem of the lotus flower. These structures provide nutrition to the infant. This infant is Brahma, who develops on that blooming lotus. The pure and unblemished form of the infant is the basic nature, in which there is no waves in gunas (3 basic constituents of nature). In a way, it has all the three basic gunas in equilibrium or equal quantity. Earlier I used to think that samyastastha or equilibrium means that all gunas are equal to each other. Even today many people think so. But it is not so. If this happens, then basically all living beings would be the same, but they maintain their separate identity even after the Holocaust or death. This happens because the amount of tamoguna that covers the soul’s light is different. Due to it, the quantity of other gunas also differs by itself. If Tamoguna is more then Satoguna is reduced in the same proportion and vice versa, because they are opposed to each other. In fact, all the gunas are in the unchanging state in samyavastha. All gunas in equilibrium with no waves means that satoguna (showing light and knowledge) remains same without rise or fall, rajoguna (showing motion, energy and change) also remains same, and the tamoguna (showing darkness and ignorance) too. With this, the baby does not crave for any particular guna, as he has no habit of fluctuating gunas. That is why the child remains a bit indifferent even after experiencing everything. Actually, it can’t be said as absence of gunas but it’s gunas in equilibrium. Waves in gunas can only be produced if these gunas are already there, not in zero. Only God is nirguna or without guna. That’s why God never experiences waves in gunas as observed by all the creatures that bind the soul. This makes God perfectly changeless. God has zero gunas because God has not dark envelope of ignorance on it’s soul that makes tamoguna. Tamoguna is the base source of all gunas. That’s why panchmakarik leftist tantric appears well developed both in worldly as well as spiritual matters. Then when the baby is a little older, there is an increase in the sensations of the mind or brain. He is attracted towards light. With this, wave is produced in gunas mainly satoguna, and as a result the sattoguna form mahattatva is formed, that is, intelligence. He begins to realize how important it is for his existence to cry and drink milk. This makes the baby feel special and different, which is called ego. Tanmatras originate from it. Tanmatra is the subtle form of the Panchamahabhootas or 5 basic natural elements, which we experience in the brain. It’s the smell of the earth, the juiciness of water, the touch feel of air, the form feel of fire and the sound feel of the sky. He recognizes the taste of milk juice, recognizes the smell of toys, touches the warmth of his urine, begins to understand the difference between beautiful and ugly through form, is attracted to the sound of ghungroo or bell or toys. Then the infant looks outside to see where these sensations came from. The senses originate from it, because all of it feels outside with the help of senses such as eye, ear, skin, tongue, nose etc. Along with this, the internal sense of mind also develops, because that is what he thinks of all this. The above five elements originate from the senses, because he seeks or knows them only with help of his senses. He learns that physical substances like milk, toys, ghungroos or bells etc. are also there in the world, which he feels through his senses. Then as the child continues to learn, the origin of such creation continues to move forward. In this way, the entire creation is expanded inside a man.
Kundalini awakening is the limit of the development of creation
Man extends the creation of the universe only for Kundalini awakening. This fact is proved by the observation that after awakening of the Kundalini, man becomes a bit like a detached from the universe. His inclination starts to move away from the worldly trend but towards retirement. His tendency also becomes like a retirement, because then there is no craving arising out of attachment. It’s to be kept in mind that it’s only mental tendency as physically he may remain fully indulged and growing in the world. After awakening of the Kundalini, the man feels that he has attained everything worth attaining, and has done everything worth doing.
According to Shiva Purana, the creation was made from Shiva’s semen
In Shivpurana, it comes that an egg originated from Shiva’s semen deposited in the vagina of nature. The egg lay in water for 1000 years. Then it broke through the middle. Its upper part became the scalp of the universe. From that originated the upper heavenly abodes. From the lower part, the lower abodes were formed.
Actually Shiva is the father here, and Prakriti or Parvati is the mother. The egg is formed in the uterus by the union of semen and ovum fluid. It remains in the nutritious water of the uterus for a long time and continues to develop. Then it explodes, that is, it begins to differentiate into shape of a human being. The top part of it was clearly visible like a head or a scalp or kapola. In it, the upper worlds originated in the form of Sahasrara Chakra, ajna Chakra and Vishuddhi Chakra. In the lower part, lower abodes developed as lower chakras.
