Endless ‘creation’


The problem – and the ‘solution’ – lie in the word ‘creation’, since whatever is created will finally come to its dissolution. The final teaching of Advaita is that there is no creation (ajati): as with Maya, there is no origin and no end to manifestation. Mahapralaya (total dissolution) pertains to mithya. There is only one reality, which is beginningless and endless, and can be called by several names: brahman, atman, ‘God’, pure consciousness, the Tao (names are not so important). Paradoxically, it is the final cause, not being a cause in the conventional sense. It is unmovable, unchangeable  and unaffected by its own manifestation. It is transcendent and immanent with respect of manifestation.
