Jnana Saraswati – Parabrahma Sutras


128. Unimaginable awareness is the work of God alone

कारकजडशक्तेरभावः प्राक्।१२८।
kārakajaḍaśakterabhāvaḥ prāk|128|

In the beginning of creation, there was no space or inert primordial energy, which might be treated as an entity to do the special work or awareness.


The awareness is only a work and not an entity. In the human body the awareness is the work of inert energy in the functioning nervous system. Similarly, the awareness in the beginning of creation must be the work of some entity only. Such entity must be God and cannot be the inert energy, since neither inert energy nor nervous system existed before the beginning of creation of space.


But as soon as a man is born he will have awareness continuously if he is healthy, then it can be called as an entity?
