Nasadiya Suktam - Before the Big Bang..

Nasadiya Suktam - Executive Summary At first existed invisible waters. None knows what it hid, how dense or deep it was. The invisible waters were beyond all the matter/energy, space and time. In that is brought in that 'One', who is the 'Oblation' (svadha). This svadha is matter/energy less and timeless.   kAma appears and exists as the first seed manas of all. Wise people know that unlike truth that binds, untruth does not bind. Hence with kAma, the 'One' is no longer bound, it starts expanding. The rays that expand crookedly in all directions, makes the seed glorious, as seed becomes the oblation below, action marks the external expansion. Thus matter/energy/space/time manifest. All devas come out in this process. Hence who directly knows, who can say what birth is, what creation is..? In fact the overseer (witness, sAksi, the One) of all the spaces/realms may know its limbs or may be not..? Nasadiya Suktam - Detailed Summary Neither truth, nor lie existed

Including the silence, Aum is made of four quarters, as Mandukya Upanishad calls it. When we say 'A', (the start of O)our lips part and the sound is produced from the vocal chord, coming out, without disturbed by our lips. It is a raw sound emanating from our vocal chords. It is a gross sound. When we say 'U',
