will never get an answer that will satisfy the question:
did God create the world?"
God know His real reason. Just like only you know why
you are reading these words. People can only
speculate. However each religion has tried to explain
Creation, according to the way It has perceived it.
like Guru Nanak's statement:
gat-mit tumahi jaane
Nanak das sadaa kurbaani
roughly translated means, that only the Lord knows His ways,
And that we should surrender (with love and in awe)
of my Readers have shown great interest in the Shrimad
Bhaagvad. One of them actually asked for my notes, since
I am putting it into prose for the first time, as I write to
you. Those of you who find it 'heavy' do please read it
through, at least once and appreciate the depth of 'The
Information' even if you do not understand it. The
reality is, that NO ONE can really comprehend 'Creation'
because our intellect, cannot possibly grasp its magnitude.
me to narrate to you the story of Creation according to the
let me tell you, a very simple description of the 3 qualities
that pervade all Creation.
or the Satvic quality: Is that which is Good and True,
equanimous, distinguishes between what qualities/actions
should be embraced and which ones should be dicarded.
or the Rajasic quality: Is the passionate activity/energy
with which a certain karma is performed.
or the Tamasic quality is that which is lazy, inert, not
yet been initiated into the Spiritual quality.
human being should progress from the Tamas to the Rajas to the
combinations of these qualities account for the various
varieties of humans that inhabit the world.
a human goes through all these qualities throughout the
day...thus in the Morning men/women are generally Sattwic...during
the day...Rajasic and come evening Tamasic...
Lord felt the desire to become 'Anek' (Many) from 'Ek'
(one). He also wished to become an integral part of 'Anek'
(Creation). So the Lord assumed Appearance in the Form
of Creation, though He has no attributes in His Pure
the Lord is Nirvikaar (Without any form) He accepted the
services of Sat Raj and Tam qualities. It is under the
veil of Sat Raj and Tam that the Lord hides. The Lord
now accepted the Form of :

Primordial attribute. The quality of Raj (Rajogun) gave
it strength. Gyaan (knowledge) and Dravya (the essence

Ego or Ahankaar is of 3 kinds.
Shakti Ahankaar (Ego energy due to Knowledge and/or
Shakti Ahankaar (Ego due to the Energy of Karma, Action)
Shakti Ahankaar (Ego due to the Energy of Affluence)
(Reason for happening), and Taamas Ego gave birth to 'Aakaash'
the Sky, Ether, Space. The quality of 'Aakaash' is 'Shabd'
Primordial Sound or 'Word' (The Bible states that first
was the 'Word' and the 'Word was with God..)
Aakaash gave birth to the 'Vaayu' Wind. Its quality is 'Sparsh'
Touch. The Wind is the cause of all senses, as it provides 'Jeevan
Shakti' in the form of the 'Breath'
(Time/Death), Karma (Action) and Svabhaav (Nature) gave rise
to 'Effulgence' (Tej).
the origin of 'Tej' is Aakaash (Ether) and Vaayu (Wind), it
enjoys the attributes of 'Shabd' (Word) and 'Sparsh'
(Touch). 'Tej' gave rise to 'Jal'
gave birth to 'Earth' Its attributes are fragrance (Gandh),
Shabd (Word), Sparsh (Touch), Roop (Form) and Ras (Beauty).
imbalance of Ether, Wind, Water, Fire and Earth would result
in the end of the world 'Pralay' ie. The end of the
world would come about by the waters crossing their
boundaries, fires erupting etc.
humans are also made of these 5 elements: An imbalance
in the 5 elements in the body, e.g. too much 'fire' is fever,
too much water is phlegm. would result in 'Death'..
Aatman or Soul is imperishable, but that is another story.

Holy book explains the creation of the universe by the use of
the word fataq or fission and rataq or fusion. Fataq
means the breaking and separation of a body and Rataq is
the process of fusing and binding together of the bodies into
a homogenous mass. So the heavens and the earth, in the
beginning, must have been one entity and subsequently they
were separated. The 'Big Bang' theory of creation of the
universe corroborates the revelation of the Quran.

smoke" (Fusilat 41: 11). This verse indicates that the
heavens in the beginning were just a "smoky mass"
before being transformed into various galactic systems of
stars and the planets. A modified Big Bang theory the
"inflationary theory" describes the original
condensed matter as rising from empty space. It reveals the
picture of other galaxies being formed by condensation of
spiralling celestial cosmic 'mist'.

Srimad Bhaagvad states: Truth has many aspects. Infinite
Truth has infinite expressions. Though the sages speak in
diverse ways, they express one and the same Truth.
Hallaj states: I have meditated on the different
