The One and the many!

Updated on February 14, 2013

I am I

How creation came about from the One?

The world is about the One and many. Actually, the One became many and hence they are all part of the One. For instance imagine a balloon before air is pumped in. It is small and flexible. Fill it up with air by your mouth. It is enlarged! The original material has changed its form and shape due to the air. Can you say that the filled up balloon is different from the original? Yes, there is only one difference. Prior to filling up, it was just a flexible elastic material. After that, it became large in size and shape and the only difference is the air inside. The material has not undergone any substantive change. It was blown to a considerable size! There is no material change. Likewise from a single point the world has expanded into a huge phenomenon baffling all the scientists and astronomers together! To state clearly, there was nothing before the creation. The ‘point’ example is only for easy understanding of the fact that the One has become many. Even now, the scientists assert that the world is expanding.

There is ‘Big bang theory”. OK, but none is aware of the reason for the big bang! The scriptures proclaim that God has created the world with one Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God! It is difficult to comprehend the statements of scriptures by the scientific and rational minds. But they can start experimenting only after the conclusion of an event and not before. Newton found that there is ‘gravity’ by noticing the attraction exerted by the earth on everything. Even before his great invention, the power of gravity existed. Hence Scientists can postulate their theories with the available tools on earth. They can not create any new thing. They used the existing elements and tried to combine different elements available on earth to study their properties etc. Thus the power of the scientific inquiry is limited to what is available on earth. Even in spite of meticulous research, they could not get answers to certain fundamental questions like “What force has enabled the big bang? How all things evolve and how there is perfect synchrony in the orbiting of planets in space and who controls their motion and path? Scientists can never find answers to the fundamental questions on creation, sustenance and destruction!

But several scriptures contain answers to these baffling questions. A formless power controls the activities of the entire universe. The power is not created by any and it is self- existing, full of wisdom and bliss! Creation is a sports or play of the supreme power. There are cycles of different yugas happening in a fixed pattern. After a period of many lakhs of years, the created universe is drawn in or absorbed by the power like a spider which weave a web ultimately absorbs it by its mouth! There are fixed laws governing different species and baring mankind all species follow their inborn instincts for billions of years without change. Man has the power of choice and discrimination and either he can evolve further or imprisoned in the web of life forever until some great being point out the way to escape from this cycle of birth and death!

      Sairam! The fig and the seed of banyan tree is really a more relevant example to clarify the point. Thank you for the nice comment!

      Well summarized uncle! The moment I saw the topic I could only think of the wisdom shared by a great sage about the fig,seed of banyan tree. The tiny seed which can give rise to a big banyan tree when broken has nothing inside! I am amazed by your interest to share Swami's teachings to the world. Great work uncle!
