Story of Genesis (Creation/Evolution) in Sant Mat – In the Beginning the Timeless (Akal), Soundless (Anadi), Nameless (Anami) State Gave Birth to Sound ……
This is part of a hymn or bani of Huzur Maharaj from Prem Bani Radhasoami, Volume Four, published in Agra, India.
A Current issued forth from the feet of SOAMI [Lord]. It
is the Prime Current and the Creator
of the entire creation.
The Name of that ADI DHARA. (Prime Current) is RADHA [Soul].
THAT alone is the doer and dispenser of every activity.
The Source or Origin or Fountain-head from
whom the Prime Current emanated, is ADI
SOAMl (Absolute Lord) of all.
Where that Current halted in its descent, the creation
of Agam Lok [Inaccessible Realm] was brought into being.
Agam Lok is a vast sphere. It encompasses all
The entire creation below is being cradled just in
a small nook of Agam Lok.
On completion of the creation of Agam Lok, a
Current issued forth from there.
It descended and halted, and evolved the creation
of Alakh Lok [Invisible Realm].
When the sphere of Alakh Lok was formed in the
above manner, the Current descended, and
created Sat Lok [True Eternal Realm].
Sat Lok is the Dham (Abode) of Sat Purush, and
is inhabited by Hansas [Heavenly Souls].
Each of the Hansas has a dweep (island) to himself.
They are absorbed in the Darshan [vision] of Sat Purush.
Up to here is the creation of Sat (Truth) or Pure Spirit.
Neither Maya [illusion] nor cruel Kal [time, death] exists here.
There is neither any desire nor any work.
All are absorbed in the Darshan [Vision] of Sat Purush and
feed on Ami (ambrosia).
All live in perfect harmony and enjoy rapturous bliss.
There is no trace of pain and anguish due to Kal
and there is no burden of Karam.
For a considerable period of time the creation
remained like this – a region of Truth
and pure bliss.
Then, from the lower portion of Sat Pur (Sat Lok)
emanated a Shyam (blue) current. It came
down and underwent considerable expansion
It remained constantly engaged in the Sewa
(service) of Purush but, inwardly, it was
cherishing some other desire.
It disclosed its mind thus, “0 Sat Purush!
0 Merciful One and Giver of all things! Grant
me the sovereignty of a separate region, and
furnish me with the seed of Surat. Life here is
not suited to me. Your region is not agreeable to me.”
Hearing this, Purush replied, “Get out from this
place. You are a nuisance here. Go and
evolve a creation for yourself in the lower part
of the pre-creational neutral zone. Take your
seat there and rule over that dominion.”
The name of that current is Niranjan. It has all
the characteristics of Kal.
Purush evolved another current with a yellow hue.
Its name is Adya.
By the order of Purush, this other current was
sent down. It associated with Niranjan.
In Sunn, they came to be known as Purush and
Prakriti, and in Trikuti, as Maya and Brahm.
They halted in Sahas-dal-kanwal [Thousand-Petaled Lotus], from where the
three Gunas (qualities) came into being.
Here, Adya assumed the form of Jyoti, and
Niranjan assumed a dark blue complexion.
They first brought into being Brahm-srishti.
Then, the creation of Triloki (three worlds)
Niranjan then engaged himself in Dhyan (contemplation)
of Purush (Sat Purush). Jyoti took
upon herself the burden of looking after the
The three Gunas or gods became her assistants. They evolved the rest
of the creation. ////////
