A current issued forth from the feet of SOAMI. It is the Prime Current and the Creator of the entire creation.
The Name of that ADI DHARA. (Prime Current) is RADHA. THAT alone is the doer and dispenser of every activity.
The Source or Origin or Fountain-head from whom the Prime Current emanated, is ADI SOAMl (Absolute Lord) of all.
Where that current halted in its descent, the creation of Agam Lok was brought into being.
Agam Lok is a vast sphere. It encompasses all the creation.
The entire creation below is being cradled just in a small nook of Agam Lok.
On completion of the creation of Agam Lok, a current issued forth from there.
It descended and halted, and evolved the creation of Alakh Lok.
When the sphere of Alakh Lok was formed in the above manner, the current descended, and created Sat Lok.
Sat Lok is the Dham (Abode) of Sat Purush, and is inhabited by Hansas.
Each of the Hansas has a dweep (island) to himself. They are absorbed in the Darshan of Sat Purush.
Up to here is the creation of Sat (Truth) or pure spirit. Neither Maya nor cruel Kal exists here.
There is neither any desire nor any work. All are absorbed in the Darshan of Sat Purush and feed on Ami (ambrosia).
All live in perfect harmony and enjoy rapturous bliss. There is no trace of pain and anguish due to Kal and there is no burden of Karam.
For a considerable period of time the creation remained like this - a region of Truth and pure bliss.
Then, from the lower portion of Sat Pur (Sat Lok) emanated a Shyam (blue) current. It came down and underwent considerable expansion and ramification.
It remained constantly engaged in the Sewa (service) of Purush but, inwardly, it was cherishing some other desire.
It disclosed its mind thus, "0 Sat Purush! 0 Merciful One and Giver of all things! Grant me the sovereignty of a separate region, and furnish me with the seed of Surat. Life here is not suited to me. Your region is not agreeable to me."
Hearing this, Purush replied, "Get out from this place. You are a nuisance here. Go and evolve a creation for yourself in the lower part of the pre-creational neutral zone. Take your seat there and rule over that dominion."
The name of that current is Niranjan. It has all the characteristics of Kal.
Purush evolved another current with a yellow hue. Its name is Adya.
By the order of Purush, this other current was sent down. It associated with Niranjan.
In Sunn, they came to be known as Purush and Prakriti, and in Trikuti, as Maya and Brahm.
They halted in Sahas-dal- kanwal, from where the three Gunas (qualities) came into being.
Here, Adya assumed the form of Jyoti, and Niranjan assumed a dark blue complexion.
They first brought into being Brahm-srishti. Then, the creation of Triloki (three worlds) was evolved.
Niranjan then engaged himself in Dhyan (contemplation) of Purush (Sat Purush). Jyoti took upon herself the burden of looking after the creation.
The three Gunas or gods became her assistants. They evolved the rest of the creation. ///
