Chapter – 24

Sri Shuka Paramarshi says, “Child, as I have said earlier that all of creation lies within the dynamic and complex structure of an atom, it is therefore necessary to perceive its interwoven complex structure, formation and composition to understand how to experience it and transcend it. As I have said earlier, the vast expanse of creation and universe is subtle in its nature and it is both these aspects that need to be perceived and understood as they are interlinked and interwoven.

The complex structure of the atom is both relative and absolute and dynamic and static. This is indeed ambiguous but so is the nature of creation. The outer layers and spaces within the atom of creation spreads in different directions and are considered to be denser and vast in its expanse and as it moves into the inner circles of the “body” or the manifest or Vyakta state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet with the creation differentials becomes more subtle than the outer layers and moves further inwards into the more subtle planes and spaces of the unmanifest or Avyakta state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet to finally reach the subtlest centre of the atom.

This will indeed be difficult to perceive and hence has to be experienced and transcended as I have said. This is the reason why so much value and importance has been given to every ritual, sadhana, anustana, practice, yāga, yagna, dhāna, dharma, japa, mantra japa, dhyāna, jnāna, yoga, Vedaopasana, Nadopasana, mantra sadhana, thapas and every other methodology prescribed in the scriptures and by the myriad forms of the Supreme Self which needs to be practised along with act of showing gratitude or Kritagyata and offering thanks to the Supreme Self, practising acceptance or Anumodhana and most importantly Self-Surrender.

Child, it is imperative to follow the instructions and surrender to the Self or self-luminous akshara or alphabet to experience and transcend the dense and subtle layers of creation to become immersed and absorbed into the Supreme Self. This is the surest path.”
