Creation according Shrimad Bhagavata Purana August 3, 2008


Description of 10 Ways of Creation by Maitrey

1. By the inspiration of God and because of imbalance in pious virtues, creation of Mahattatva (the soul) was the first (Mahattatva the soul).

2. From Mahattatva (the soul) originates Ahankaar (the ego) which generates five primitive elements (the earth, the fire, the air, the water and the ether), sense organs and motor organs.

3. Group of Tanmatras (the subtle forms of matter) that generate the five major elements, is the third creation.

4. Creation of organs that have the power of sensing and moving is the fourth creation.

5. Creation of the mind that governs the senses and was appeared from ego, is the fifth creation.

6. Appearance of mind and the illusions that misguide it, is the sixth creation.

7. The above mentioned six creations are known as natural creations also. Creatures other than these six have no power of knowledge, they can experience the touch only. These creatures like trees and other vegetables are known as the seventh creation.

8. Eighth creation is of the birds and animals.

9. Ninth creation is of those human beings who seek pleasure in action and luxuries which are infact the cause of sorrow.

10.Tenth creation is of the great sages like Sanatkumar etc. Thus at the beginning of the Kalp, God the creator used Rajogunas (royal virtues) to create himself in the form of the universe.

Maitreyaji says, ” This whole creation is a manifestation of the plays of God. That omnipotent God created the universe just by His wish and for the sake of His play.
