Creation is apparently composed of many entities, but fundamentally, there is one Supreme Entity that pervades all created objects of this universe. The cosmic will of Parama Purusha was materialised by Prakriti, resulting in the creation of multidimensional and quinquelemental – five fundamental – universe.
The manifested world of inferences is composed of five fundamental factors – ether, air, fire, liquid and solid.
Not only inanimate matter, even human beings are made of the same fundamental factors that are themselves created due to the influence of Prakriti, the immanent principle of Purusha. Ultimately, we discover the One Entity which is beginningless, endless, omnipresent, colourful, placid and tranquil. All the innumerable finite entities, with their individual names and forms, have originated from that one Supreme source.
The elements, birds and animals, the worms and insects, body and mind, sense organs; knowledge and intellect – in fact, all visible and invisible, crude and subtle, manifested and unmanifested objects emanate from Parama Purusha alone.
Why are there so many differences amongst animals, or amongst human beings, and why are there so many struggles? The answer is that these differences and struggles are all due to the influence of Maya, causing the undifferentiated Purusha to be metamorphosed into many.
Maya is the cause for the differences between one and another, one age and another, and one person and another. The moment the veil of Maya is removed, truth manifests itself in all its radiance, and all external differences merge into internal unity. The same samskaras cannot live in two separate entities – they want to be fused into one. So if one’s individual samskaras could be withdrawn and then infused into two separate structures, they will become one.
Rama and Shyama are two different entities because each has a different set of samskaras. Shyama doesn’t act or think like Rama, and Rama doesn’t look like Shyama. If their separate samskaras are removed, there will ultimately exist one soul and one mind. Suppose there is pot of water in the pond. If the pot is broken, there remains only one entity – water. Likewise, if individual samskaras are removed, internal entities will be fused into one.
While two sadhakas were meditating their individual samskaras were removed and the same set of spiritual samskaras were infused in them. Immediately they rushed to each other and embraced so tightly that it was impossible to separate them. They lay unconscious, locked in one another’s grasp. They felt a deep bond of love for each other – they had no sense of discrimination – and their bodies began to shiver. As they have the same samskaras they wanted to become one. Since both of them had the same feeling, same life, mind and soul, why should they remain in separate bodies?
