Full meaning:

The letter of brahma is supreme (om). The ownself showing emotion that is the atma it is said. The living entity, the dwelling for the purpose of emotion inorder to perform from grief/dejection for adoration/respect. The science of action equal to that which is known. 

 

There you have it again, the scripture of mankind. Want was once, is now that which is known to you through karma.

 

What does it say in Gita? 

Yes! There is nothing higher than Brahman (GOD). Brahman’s power manifested in everybody as the Jiva. It does not say that. So then, what about the words vasudevaya sarvam iti. What is the difference is understanding this to brahman as supposed to vasudevaya. The creative act which brings all being into existence is karma, yes we live and die performing karma. What exactly is this creative act? The science of which brings all beings into existence? The brahma? The vishnu? The mystery of prakriti, the manner in which we are born here? Why is the creative act identified with sacrificial offering? So then Surya, agni is making the creative act possible, but I want to say the understanding here is brahman is the creative act. How does one understand creative act… and after this?
