JGD Ekthaji, Reference: YG page 25 para 3 – Vasishtha is talking to Rama on the vibrations and their impact. Is the vibration here means the event(s) that are occurring to this body-consciousness in order to experience the ignorance and later the Glory?
Do you remember the pool of consciousness process that we did during the Upanishads weekend? At the beginning of creation, we were all just a single pool of consciousness. Just like one calm, immobile, serene lake. No current, no ripples, no movement at all. Just a quiet immovable infinite nothingness existed! Then in that nothingness on account of Maaya, there was the first vibration of “I”. This first vibration is called Visnu. Visnu is the maintainer of all that exists therefore Visnu is born first. (Please refrain from imagining somebody clad in animal skin with a jata on the head etc). Visnu is just the first vibration/impulse in Brahman. Then Brahma was born, the creator impulse and the rest of the beings were born out of it.
We are nothing but vibrations, that’s it. Every plant, animal, rock, human, insect, fish, paper, table, computer, sun, planets, etc. Everything is but a vibration. Matter does not exist! Everything and everyone is just a vibration in that infinite consciousness!
