Manifestation and the Unmanifest (Shiva – Shakti and Atman)


“I is/as Beingness” (sat) – prakriti: substance-energy-movement FEMALE  (Shakti)

“I is/as”aware of Itself” (chit) – purusha: essence-witness-stillness MALE  (Shiva)

Their union – (ananda): JOY/LOVE/LIFE/FULFILLMENT – in Manifestaton

NOT-TWO  (I AM beyond both of them, changeless, eternal) – Unmanifested

(aparent separation in phenomenal life, so there can be a show, a play, or a dance – it is not only Shiva who dances)
