Mantram-1. { Birth  of  all  beings  from  "Brahmam" like  sparks  from  fire. }


Discussion-7. "an  effect  can  only  perish  to  become  the  cause" ........


It  is  a  theory  in  philosophy,  accepted  in  scientific  observations  also,  that  "an  effect  can  only  perish  to  become  the  cause;"  the  seed  dies  away  to  become  the  tree;  water,  when  decomposed,  becomes  but  hydrogen  and  oxygen,  a  physical  structure  made  up  of  the  five  elements;  all  ornaments  made  of  gold  can  change  only  to  become  a  mass  of  gold.


Similarly,  a  spark  of  fire  riding  on  a  little  matter,  seems  to  have  wandered  away  from  the  main  fire-place  and  exists  as  such  only  during  such  time  at  it  has  not  finished  away  with  its  eating  up  of  the  "matter."


It  is  only  a  conditional  fire  that  comes  out  as  a  spark  and  the  spark  exists  only  so  long  as  the  conditioning  existed.

When  the  consumable  'matter' has  been  reduced  to  a  speck  of  ash,  the  fire-essence  in  the  spark  rolls  back  into  the  total  fire  in  the  fire-place.
