The Creation of Duality

The Svetsara says, creation is the magic of a great magician. The Aitareya says, atman said, let me be many.

The Taittiriya says, satcitananda wills space into being. The Chandogya says, earth, wind, and fire are the vast vibrations of absolute existence.

The Mundaka says, it’s all like the dazzling sparks from an awesome fire. Vidyaranya's Pancadasi says, there are two creations.

The one is brahman appearing as a manifest universe in all the various ways in which the Upanishads are telling it.

Second is that brahman, a subtle body, and the reflection of consciousness on this subtle body, creates the person, jiva, psychological duality.
