Everybody say that God has created the universe but these views, though, are true but seem to be not based on the study of Vedas (Yajurveda Chapter 31 and Rigveda Mandal 10). So the words are being used like a traditional saying, which is wrong, being a cut-piece. Especially Atharvaved Kand 12, Sukta 5, Mantra 50 and the whole Kand 12 mostly, warn to study the Vedas in full and your statement must be based on Vedas’ knowledge as proof. Atharvaveda Mantra 7/2/1 speaks that he who has not studied the Vedas in full, has not practiced Ashtang Yoga and thus has not realized God and has not known about the creation and unisexual creation of human beings at the beginning of the earth, he is not an authentic person to deliver any preach to anybody. So the preach of such like mantras must be seriously adhered to. The secret of this mantra is that when a person will study Vedas in full, and do yoga practice, and will be able to understand the creation in accordance with the philosophy of the above said Yajurveda Chapter 31 and Mandal 10 of Riveda the only he will be able to understand the traitvad because in the said Mantras, Almighty God has clearly preached that universe is made of non-alive Prakriti, souls get bodies in accordance with their karmas and God is within souls, and prakriti made the universe.
The said Mandal 10 Sukta 129 of Rigveda speaks – “Na Sat Aseet Na Asat Aseet, Na Mrituyu Aseet Na Amritam.” This is the description after the final destruction of the universe and before the next creation, i.e. of the time gap where no creation existed. That is why the God preaches in this Mantra that there was no Sat, i.e. Almighty God was there but His power, which is called “Sat” here, was not in action to create universe. And therefore, Asat didn’t exist there. Asat means that the previous creation, that is, earth, moon, air, space, etc. because it was the time gap after the previous final destruction of the universe and before the next creation. “Na Mrityuhu Asset Na Amritam”. Amritam means final liberation of the soul. When there was no birth and death, therefore, there was no question of any salvation. Again the mantra says “Tat Ekam” i.e. one truth (God). “Swadhya” i.e. Swayambhu. “Avatum” i.e. without requiring air etc. to live upon. “Aaseet” i.e. was there. Its meaning is that between the gap stated above, there was only Almighty God present who requires nothing to live upon, neither requires any assistance of organs etc. To see, listen and walk etc. and especially because God is called swadhya (Swayambhu) which means that nobody has made the God and therefore God Himself is without reasoning.
For example, a child is a reason of parents to take birth but God has no reason being Swadhya (Swa=self, Dhya=firmness). Here I shall draw attention of all concerned to Rigveda Mantra 1/164/46 wherein it is stated that God is one but according to His unlimited qualities, His holy names are also unlimited. On this basis, we draw our attention to Rigveda Mantra 1/1/1 – “Agnim Ede Purohitam…”. Ag Agrini dhatu produces word Agni which means “Firstly” or “before”. Ede means “desire”. The meaning of the mantra will be – I must desire to realize the God Who was present before creation. So we must worship the God and must not worship His creation, the mantra says. Secondly, the God is self-firmness. So nobody has the power to make God or determine God at his own accord. In this connection, Yajurveda Mantra 32/3 also refers, saying, “Na Tasya Pratima Asti.” Pratima means (Pratimaap) i.e. beyond measurement and weight and therefore without shape. So we must hundred percent fix our deterimination about God that He is formless and self-firmness, needs no assistant being Almighty, independent, etc. etc.
So this is one (first) eternal truth. In the next mantra 3 of this Sukta 129, there was another eternal truth called (Aabhu Aseet) “AABHU” (Prakriti) which is the cause of creation of universe. That is called AABHU (Prakirti) a substance was also there, which is used for creation. “Tat Mahina” i.e. from this ABHU (Prakirti), a Mahat (mind) originated which was the first substance created at the time of beginning of the earth. Mandal 10 of Rigveda Mantra cited above further says, in Mantra 5, Sukta 129 – “Retodhana Aasan”.
“Ret” means the first seed of desire orinated in mind (Mann in Hindi) at the beginning of the earth, as stated in Mantra 4, Sukta 129. “Retodhaha” means orinally the desire are held by alive souls. So the mantra says that the second truth, before creation, was alive souls and souls were “Mahimaanaha Aasan” i.e. souls were countless, “Eshan Rashmihi” i.e. the souls were bound with previous karmas, therefore were waiting for the next birth in new creation. So this is the second eternal truth called souls. In next mantra 6, it is said – “Kah Addha Ved” i.e who knows the fact of above cited God, souls and ABHU (Prakriti) at this juncture. Juncture means systemaically we are studying Mandal 10 Mantra and we have reached only upto 6th Mantra. Uptil now the description of Almighty, the only God, Prakriti and the countless souls, we have learnt and not any other truth. Now we proceed and see that this Mantra 6th further says, “Because the learned persons have not yet taken birth and will take birth at the time of complete creation, so nobody was there and therefore nobody can thus, describe about the God, souls or about the creation as from which element the creation is made of. Next Mantra 7th of this Sukta throws knowledge that the Almighty God truly is the commander of the non-alive matter i.e, prakriti, further says because the Almighty God is the Commander of the matter (prakriti). “Sah Yadi Vaa Dadhe Yadi Vaa Naa” i.e. it is upto God whether He creates universe or not. Though the creation is automatic but the scret of these lines is that when the power of God starts functioning in the matter (prakriti) then only the creation starts and until the power of the God does not start functioning in that matter (prakriti), the creation will never take place. Based on the knowledge of Vedas, Muni Kapil says in his Sankhya Shastra Sutra 1/26 that from Prakriti the first substance originated in the form of ‘Mahat’ mind, then Ahankaar, 5 Tan Matras, 5 matters and 11 organs (Indriyan). Therefore, there remains no scope of Advaitvad because the conclusion of these Mantras comes that before creation, three eternal substances always remain i.e. Almighty God, souls (both alive) and non-alive prakriti. Creation from Prakriti and final destruction at the stipulated time is called “Sansar Chakra” and this Chakra according to Yajurveda Mantra 31/3 remains in one part (Padah Asya Vishwa Bhutani) power of Almighty God, as also said in Geeta Shloka 10/42. In this Sansaar Chakra, the eternal soul due to attachment with worldly affairs made of Prakriti, is wandering (birth and death) in sorrows, problem, etc. A spiritual master when preaches the aspirant, then only the soul recollect his eternal stage.
