Section-1.

Mantram-9. { "Mountains, rivers, plants,  rtc. are also  born  of  Brahmam" }.

Discussion-1. "Recap of  previous  mantram  and  how  Sruti  takes  you  further  about  the  details  of  creation"...

In  the  previous  mantra-s,  we  have  been  told  that  from  the  Supreme  Reality  came  all  the  dynamic  aspects  of  nature  and  the  entire  kingdom  of  living  organisms.

This  enumeration  might  leave  in  the  minds  of  the  readers  a  doubt  a  doubt  that  the  inert  'matter'  may  have  a  different  source  of  existence  altogether.

In  order  to  remove  any  such  fallacious  conclusions,  'Sruti' is  here  indicating  that  even  the  mountains,  oceans,  rivers,  are  all  manifestations  of  the  Same  Eternal  Truth.

Earth,  when  watered  by  the  rivers  becomes  a  favourable  field  for  plants  life,  and  then  plants  grow.

In  the  plant  is  the  sap  and  by  digesting  the  sap,  the  beings  preserve  and  maintain  themselves;  they  grow  and  cultivate  their  bodies,

Food  in  its  subtlest  potency,  nourishes  the  mind  and  intellect  which  constitute  the  subtle  body.
