The world – mere appearance – El mundo – mera apariencia

The supreme Spirit, unlimited by time and space, of His own will and by the power of His omnipotence, takes upon Himself the limited forms of time and space. Know that the world, although appearing as substantial, has nothing substantial in it: it is a void, being merely an appearance created by the images and vagaries of the mind. Know the world to be an enchanted scene, presented by the magic of Maya.




El Espíritu Supremo, no limitado por el espacio y el tiempo, toma para sí las formas limitadas del espacio y el tiempo por su propia voluntad y el poder de su omnipotencia. Sabe que el mundo, pese a aparecer como substancial carece de toda substancia: es un vacío, una mera apariencia creada por las imágenes y los caprichos de la mente. Conoce al mundo como una escena encantada presentada por la magia del Maya.

– Yoga Vasishta
