……Now this energy on the right hand side which started creating universes, as I showed you how it created universes, it first produced the physical part of it, and that is what is the electromagnetic force. But then out of all this the Mother Earth created carbon. As soon as she created the carbon through the effect of the electricity that is Vishnumaya, the carbon got attached to the hydrogen and the oxygen. These are, left side is the hydrogen, right side is the oxygen. And that’s how amino acids were formed. First the amino acids were formed. That’s how the prana started. So first it was just the electromagnetic force which became prana. So in the electromagnetic field you will find there are vibrations clearly shown asymmetric, symmetric vibrations are there. Say if you take a sulfur dioxide as one of the molecules, you’ll find sulfur has got two oxygens vibrating it. But it is just the electromagnetic force. It’s just one force, out of the one energy which is out of the three energies. Now the second force started called as prana on the right hand side which ultimately created the mind, the brain. So when you get realized then it becomes pranava. So from electromagnetic to prana, from prana to pranava. Pra means enlightened. The left side is the power of the emotions. Because, you see, English is a very funny language, it doesn’t discriminate. I don’t know how to say, because mind is the same as the Spirit, and Spirit as the mind is a big confusion.
What it means that the manasa, which is the mind according to Sanskrit language, manasa is the left hand side. Is the manasa which we call the superego. And the ego is ahamkara. So they have two things, ahamkara. So with the right side you produce ahamkara; with the left side you produce manasa. So the left is the power of the manasa, the emotional power on the left hand side. Now when you get realized then these two powers join together. So pranava starts. First is like this I would say, to give you a very, very gross example is this way. That I come from, say, India and I go to England. So I carry a tape recorder, we could say. I go on taping everything, accumulating all the knowledge, understanding everything what has happened and all that. Then again I go back, carrying all the knowledge; is like that. So the energy first was innocent energy, [became/become] nascent, it became active, it carried the whole thing, the knowledge with it. And then it’s relieved.
Like I can come to America, take a tape recorder, tape everything, whatever has happened, go back and reveal it. So the revelation then comes to you. And now you can trace it back again. This is the play, this is the Maya; that’s all. Did you follow this point? No? This is Maya again. It’s like this, you see. All the energy was, first of all was Maha Maya, all right? We can say, the Maha Maya, or we can say the Adi Shakti….
