67. Inert energy is the material cause of creation

आत्मा ब्रह्म सृष्टिमूलं मूलप्रकृतिः सर्वमिदम्।६७।
ātmā brahma sṛṣṭimūlaṁ mūlaprakṛtiḥ sarvamidam|67|

This inert energy remaining in deep sleep called as Atman, can also be called as Brahman because this inert energy is the material cause of creation. It is called as mula prakriti. Since matter is also its form alone, the body is also inert energy and thus basically continuous homogeneity is achieved as this inert energy forms this entire creation.


The inert energy limited to the body is called as Atman. Even the body or matter is basically inert energy and hence there is no discontinuity in the inert energy. Even space is inert energy. In this way the homogeneous Brahman is the result. This greatest inert energy can be called as Brahman or Mula Prakriti. Since, the body cannot limit the inert energy in the basic sense, Atman is simultaneously Brahman. This entire creation is generated from this mula prakriti, which is called as Brahman (Kaarya Brahman).
