Brahman-GOLD , its Highest Qualities and Jewellery Store
This Brahman is GOLD, and the Jagat is a jewellery store (bhandaar) .
Ishvara is the Cosmic Person who shapes this malleable gold using His Maya shakti. (He is otherwise too busy with His madhur pastimes in VrndAvan as well as in meditation on Kailash and telling sweet stories of His own 'other' forms to Ishvari).
So Ishvara is the owner of this jewellery shop, and MAyA shakti (the Avyakta PRakrti, unmanifest Nature) is His artisan.
But wait ... Ishvara is this collective GOLD itself , Who manifests as its Supreme-most set of designer jewellery of the Highest Quality.
The entire store is His Vishwa Roop (Universal Form) , since there can be nothing that is not in Him and outside of Him.
The walls , tables, chairs, showcases of this store are all made of the same GOLD. The air in the shop is also golden!
VasanAs (desires) are the creative designs that are the reason why the jewellery takes shape, each time a better and finer design than the earlier one.
This girl called MAyA flips thru' the designer magazines and finds the correct designs for the week.
This girl (BAlA) , is actually an aspect and energy of the Brahman-GOLD, in unmanifest form.
As time passes , more jewellery is bought , sold, shaped, molten, re-shaped, as the customers called Sanchit, Agami and PrArabdha keep visiting.
Some of the jewellery has evolved to such an extent that there are no more designs (vAsanA) , the magazine is exhausted, MAyA is at a creative loss. She gives up and hands the pure GOLD back to Ishvara.
- dedicated to my Lord , Shri KRshna , ParamAtmA, ParaBrahman, who alone IS, who enables all thought, and who as HRshikesha drives this miniscule, insignificant piece of jewellery [crazy ]
Jai Shri Krshna
BG 10.10: To those who are constantly devoted to serving Me with love, I give the understanding by which they can come to Me.
BG 10.11: To show them special mercy, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance.
