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.
