Mantram-8. ( "Sequence of Creation of the Universe" )
Discussion-3. "Creative urge in Reality ...."
The creative urge in Reality, in its own potency, swells an impatience of self-expression, and then from that the whole world of objects constituting the plane of 'matter' emerges out.
From matter, life as known to us manifests.
'Prana,' here means life; prana is the centre of all activities.
That there is a close relationship between the prana and the mind is quite well-known.
When a mind is agitated, the rhythm of prana is quick; when the mind is at rest and at peace, the prana is smooth and quiet.
Where there is no 'Prana', there the mind cannot be.
Thus Upanishd-s rightly conclude that from the 'Prana-s, the mind springs forth.
