6-2-1 - Creation
Uddaalak said to his son Shwetaketu - "In the beginning, my dear, there was
the Being alone - the One without a second. he thought let me become many,
let me grow forth (so He created the Universe)."
"Fetch me a fruit of the Nyagrodh tree."
"Here it is, Sir."
"It is broken, Sir."
"What do you see?"
"Some seeds, extremely small."
"Break ,loose one of them."
"Here is one, Sir."
"What do you see?"
"I can hardly see anything."
The father said - "My dear, The tiny seed, you can hardly see is the
subtle essence of the great Nyagrodh tree. You should have trust in this
fact. In the same way the Supreme Being is the essence of all things in

But the salt could not be found in the water because it has disappeared in
The father said - "Taste different portions of water, the top, the middle,
and the bottom and let me know.

the same way the Supreme being is around although you cannot see Him.
The father continued - "In the same way, son, you cannot see the soul in
your body, but truly it is there. The soul is He (God) and we say "Tat
Twam Asi", He You Are."
"Imagine my dear, someone, whose home is in Gaandhaar, and he is led away
to a deserted place, blindfolded, and is left there. This person could go
east, west, north or south and would be helplessly wander around
exclaiming he is lost, because he was left there blindfolded."

blindfold and point him in the right direction to Gaandhaar, he would then
be reach to Gaandhaar by conferring his path from village to village. Just
so does a person who meets a true spiritual teacher, who directs him to
the true Destination - realization of his own soul. The Lord lives in
every person's body, your soul is He. This is the truth. Wherefore "Tat
Twam Asi" - He You Are."
