Rigveda 10- 129 -3 It has been said that before the creation of the universe, there was neither a form nor anything in the form of a form. was not, Nor was there anything beyond that. There was darkness. free from that darkness, Seriously undetectable a floating substance was all over the place. It was full everywhere. According to the Vedas Prakriti i.e. Salil was the flowing substance, But he was Kandar Nischal i.e. Tamas (inert). When the power of God is combined with nature, Then the creation work begins, That is, motion arises in the still nature. When another conscious element is included in this moving nature, So a creature is created.
From what we see around us, we can gain knowledge of the world from which it is made, as it is made, and for the purpose for which it is made. Seeing and studying this visible world, one obtains the knowledge from which this world is made. It also shows that some substances have some properties, and some substances do not. We call substances possessing some qualities bodily, and others we call bodiless. Two types of matter are visible in this pastoral world – conscious and inert. Humans, animals, birds, aquatics, insects and moths, etc., come under the consciousness of many such animals. In inert objects, chairs, tables, houses, mountains, climates, etc. can be counted. Every particle of inert matter remains stationary, or moves at a constant speed in a straight line, unless it is subjected to the influence of some other force. In Brahmasutra 2-2-4 it is said-
Vyatirekanavastithescha inextricable tvat.
That is, inert substances do not change their state, unless there is any kind of effect on them.
Western scientist Newton has also accepted this theory. It is noteworthy that wherever the table, chair etc. are kept, they remain lying there, they do not change their place. Therefore these non-living things are inert, but human beings, horses, animals, birds etc. They are walking, moving, flying etc. of their own accord. Therefore this creature is conscious. Apart from man, horse, animal etc. and table, chair etc., another category of substances are also visible – this substance is vegetation etc. Due to the presence of trees and plants etc. standing in their place, they are considered to be a third type of matter, but they are also substances of the animal category.
This is because they are situated on land etc., because they can get their food only by being situated on land etc. Human beings get food from such places, which are not as stable as the land. Yet it is also a special category of beings. Expressing the characteristics of a creature in Rigveda 1- 264-1, it is said that the brother who does the work of the body of the creature who attains this beautiful old age, that is, the soul is sitting in the middle of it, and enjoys nature. Both of them have a third brother, who protects it with his seven sons, the soul of the body.
This is the Vedic definition of vital substance. It is also used for animals. Matter is said to be that which we know from any word or group of words. Therefore the word substance is used for any object, element, idea or principle. It is said in Rigveda 2- 164-20 –
Dva Suparna Sayuja Sakhaya Samanam tree pari saswajaate.
Tayoranya: pippalam svavatvattyanannnanyo abhi chakshiti..
That is, the two Atman elements are related together in the form of branches, equally situated on a tree of nature. One of them tastes the ripe fruits of the tree, that is, nature, and the other does not enjoy it. He only watches as a witness.
This animal depiction described in the Rigveda is for the whole animal world, but it is more applicable to humans. A body containing the soul is called a living entity. The body functions even without the soul. A well-known example of the functioning of the body without the soul is when the sperm unites with the ovum, but is not yet combined with the mother’s uterus. According to Vedic scholars, the soul does not enter the fetus for a few days even after the mother’s connection with the uterus. He enters the body only when a cavity is prepared in his habitable place i.e. heart. It takes 40 days after pregnancy. Whatever be the case, it is certain that the body continues to form for some time due to the impulse, and when it becomes fit for the living entity, then the soul starts living in it. Till then, the work continues in the body in the same way as the metabolic activities continue in a steady flame. But at that time, like a steady flame, the symptoms of the soul, that is, the conscious element, do not come in it. The characteristics of the conscious element have been described in Vedic science as follows-
Ichchadveshprayattansukh dukhgyanani atmano lingam iti.
– Philosophy of Justice 1-1-10
That is, the signs of the soul are – to desire, to resist adversity, to try to achieve favorable, to experience happiness and sorrow, and to keep consciousness in oneself.
In Nyaya Darshana 1-1-10, the word knowledge has come for the word consciousness, which has a special meaning. For this the word Ikshan has been used in the Brahmasutras, and the word Discrete in the modern science. The meaning of Iksha is discriminate, that is, one who discriminates and decides the direction and time. In Vedic philosophy, the substance combined with these qualities is called a living entity, and that body is accompanied by the soul. A substance that does not possess these qualities is apraani i.e. without the soul. In Vedic science, the substances of the world are divided into two categories – matter and conscious. They are called conscious beings, and the inert are non-animals.
Thus we see that in Vedic science the soul along with the body has been called conscious, and matter is the matter which, if it has ever stayed somewhere, remains stationary or if it moves in a straight line and keeps on moving in a constant motion. Huh. But we see that the objects of the universe are usually in motion. That is why he has been given the name of the world. The literal meaning of the world is that which is moving. It means that the matter of the universe is moving, but it is not moving in a straight line at a fixed speed. This means that the matter of the world is also something more than matter. Just as a living being is something more than a dead body, so the matter of the world is something more than the absolutely matter.
It is important to note that matter does not change its state without the influence of any external substance. On the other hand we see that all the matter in the universe is moving, and moving in an elliptical motion. Newton has attributed this motion to a universal force, which is called earth attraction. Due to the presence of this earth attraction, the planets revolve around the Sun on an elliptical path. Due to a force causing motion in an object, that object should move in a straight line. The earth is pulling the moon towards itself by the force of earth attraction. The velocity of motion in the straight line of the Moon is balanced by this and makes its motion around the Earth elliptical. But in Newton’s theory, from where this motion or power is coming in the moon or planets, it has not been described. But its source has been mentioned in Vedadi texts. It is said in Yajurveda 40-1 that whatever is going on in this moving world, everything is covered by that God. This world deserves to be abandoned. Don’t be tempted by it.
According to Vedic science, this attraction-repulsion power is present in the atoms, but in the original state it is merging with each other, it is called equilibrium. When this equilibrium is disturbed by God, then attraction-repulsion starts happening in the atom. Because the equilibrium of atoms is disturbed at the time when it is time for creation. For this reason it is believed that God has the power to worship. It decides the place and time of dissolution of that equilibrium, and at that time it breaks the equilibrium in innumerable atoms at that place. There are three energies in an atom – Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. They are exhausting each other like Trikti. In this, tamas is neutral, rajas is negative and sattva is positive. When these powers are released from the power of God, then they start attracting and repelling each other. Five types of powers are obtained from this attraction-repulsion. This is called the five tanmatras. It has a tantalizing earth attraction.
Thus it is clear that this power of atoms can only be the result of the actions of a very great being. No one else is visible in the world who can activate the energy of millions and Padma atoms by disturbing the equilibrium in them. According to the Vedic view, there is no energy in the power. In addition to this quality, it is possible only in a knowledgeable person to decide the time, place, direction etc. to release the power. Power is not the owner of knowledge. Like electricity is power, but where does it work? When to work and what to do? She certainly does not do this herself. Only the conscious decides this. For this reason, the person who uses power is considered separate from Shakti. The same thing is about releasing energy from atoms. Vedic science considers Shakti and Shaktimaan separately. Thus it is clear that there are two types of matter in the universe. One is called a creature, and the other a non-animal. There are also two types of matter in Aprani i.e. inert matter – dynamic and immovable matter.
Even in the present science, considering a substance as immovable and invisible, it has been named Nutris. Neutrige is an electron with an opposite charge and a proton with an opposite charge. This means that the normal electron has a negative electric charge. The oppositely charged electron has a positive electric charge. Similarly, the normal proton has a positive electric charge and the oppositely charged proton has a negative electric charge. These oppositely charged particles are called opposite materials. It is said that when the particles of the material and the opposite material collide, first a Meijon particle is formed and it soon disappears as a massless particle. This is Nutris. This motionless inertial particle is an atom. Regarding this, it has been said in Rigveda 10- 129 -3 that before the creation of the universe, there was neither a form nor anything in the form of a form. There was no space, nor was there anything beyond it. There was darkness. Silent from that darkness, a flowing substance unknowable from the grave was everywhere. It was full everywhere. According to the Vedas Prakriti i.e. Salil was a flowing substance, but it was Kandar Nischal i.e. Tamas (inert). According to Rigveda 10-129-2, at that time that immovable life was self-absorbed nature and there was nothing other than this-
Aanidvatam svadhya tadekam tasmaddhanyannah parah ki chanas.
It has been said while telling about the matter present before the creation that there was an immovable substance and there was an immovable power. Prakriti was present in salil (flowing) i.e. granular, very fine particles. She was motionless. So it was dead. Modern scientists have also observed that when matter collides with antimatter, gamma rays are emitted from it. This proves that the particle was accelerated by that gamma ray. According to Vedic science, that power is of God. It is worth mentioning that power cannot work without Shaktimaan. This power has been addressed in Rigveda 10-129-2 as Anidvatam svadhyaya tadekam. Regarding this power, it is further said in Rigveda 10-129-3 that that which was covered from all sides, but a tapas i.e. hot and great power arose. When the power of God is united with nature, then the work of creation starts, that is, motion is generated in the immovable nature. When another conscious element is included in this moving nature, then a creature is created. That is why in Rigveda 1-164-20 it has been talked about having two elements, conscious elements in a living being. According to Brahmasutra 1-2-11, this body functions due to the presence of two Atma elements in the cavity. This cavity is a small empty space in the heart (brain) of the creature, where the presence of the Supreme Soul and the soul is proved. Thus it is clear that in this moving age, creation work is done by the union of God and nature, that is, with active cooperation, and the body of the creature is inhabited by two soul elements – Paramatma and Atman.
