Nasadiya-sukta

The Nasadiya-sukta is the Rig Vedic Hymn of Creation, one of the most sophisticated ideas of creation to arise out of the Upanishadic tradition of questioning. It is a description of Existence as it might have been even before time. Only He knows, or perhaps, even He knows not, says the hymn, and it is this uncertainty to be explored that makes this a riveting read.

More about the Course

The Nasadiya-sukta is the Rig Vedic Hymn of Creation, one of the most sophisticated ideas of creation to arise out of the Upanishadic tradition of questioning. It is a description of Existence as it might have been even before time. Only He knows, or perhaps, even He knows not, says the hymn, and it is this uncertainty to be explored that makes this a riveting read.

The Nasadiya-sukta is the 129th sukta of the 10th mandala of the Rigveda. In 7 short mantras it delves into the depths of creation arising out of pure Existence. It is a vision of what existed before creation, a time of no time, a place of no place, an intriguing something about which nothing definite can be said. Reality is neither existence nor non-existence; there was neither death nor immortality, for there was no duality whatsoever. There was only That One Presence, throbbing in all splendour; there was nothing second to It: It alone was.

A total of 5 video sessions by Swami Advayananda, divided into 4 lessons are made available to the registered students.
