Everything has originated from the ‘Word’

Almost all the religions in the world accept that everything in the universe has originated from the ‘word’. According to Hindu philosophy, the universe has been created from the word ‘Om’. In this relation, Bhagawan Shri Krishna in the Bhagwad Geeta says-

  • oṁ ityekākṣharaṁ brahma vyāharan mām anusmaran
    yaḥ prayāti tyajan dehaṁ sa yāti paramāṁ gatim (8:13)

    One who departs from the body while remembering Me, the Supreme Personality, and chanting the syllable Om, will attain the supreme goal.

  • oṁ tat sad iti nirdeśho brahmaṇas tri-vidhaḥ smṛitaḥ
    brāhmaṇās tena vedāśh cha yajñāśh cha vihitāḥ purā (17:23)

    The words “Om Tat Sat” have been declared as symbolic representations of the Supreme Absolute Truth, from the beginning of creation. From them came the priests, scriptures, and sacrifice.

  • tasmād oṁ ity udāhṛitya yajña-dāna-tapaḥ-kriyāḥ
    pravartante vidhānoktāḥ satataṁ brahma-vādinām (17:24)

    Therefore, when performing acts of sacrifice, offering charity, or undertaking penance, expounders of the Vedas always begin by uttering “Om” according to the prescriptions of Vedic injunctions.

  • Christianity also believes that the universe has originated from the ‘word’. The Holy Bible clearly says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” Similarly, Jews also believe that the world has originated from the ‘word’.

  • In this relation, while clarifying the mysteries of Vedas, Maharishi Aurobindo says,

  • “This universal belief was experienced by the sages. They saw two universes instead of one. One was lifeless and the other was divine. Instead of two, they saw three oceans in front of their eyes. Whatever they saw, was something that mankind will see sometime later in the future when his physical eyes that see the world and nature would have changed into divine eyes. Below that, they saw an endless night, waves of ‘Tamas’, and darkness hidden behind the darkness and a lifeless ocean in which HIS power had originated through HIS powerful ‘Tamas’. Above that, they saw light and a pleasing far-off ocean which is a higher sky; it is the ‘Parampad’ of Vishnu who is the form of bliss. Among the powers that have to be ascended, one was a dark sky, formless, lifeless ‘Asat’ (Untruth) and the second was like a luminescent sky- the omnipresent and lifeless ‘Sat’ (Truth). Both these were the extension of the one and only Universal Power. One was dark and the other was full of light. In between these two infinities- an infinite emptiness and an infinite perfect fullness, they saw an ever growing third ocean before their eyes. This is the ocean that we have to cross.”

  • Those who are in constant association with me, are able to perceive the above, they are having self realization. It seems that very soon we will be able to prove the truth written in the Vedas.
