Bharatheeya Samskruthi  »  Sama Vedic Upanishads -XIII
AvyaktaUpanishad
The Upanishad deals with the creation of clearly defined things from the unclear past. Tells how Parajapati came from Avayaktha and went on to create the world. It also gives a mantra to worship Lord Vishnu.The three states of evolution in the beginning were Avyakta( indeterminate), Mahattatwa(determined indeterminate) and Ahamkara(determinate). For each of these is a sukta.

Avyakta - NaasadeeyaSukta
Mahattatwa - HiranyagarbhaSukta
Ahamkara -- PurushaSukta


NAASADEEYA SUKTA
Then there was neither Aught nor Naught, no air nor sky beyond.What covered all? What rested all? Nor death was then, nor deathlessness, nor change of night and day.That one breathed calmly, self-sustained; naught else beyond it lay.Gloom hid in gloom existed first-one sea eluding view.The one a void in chaos wrapped, by inward forever grew.Within it first arose desire, the primal germ of mind,which nothing with existence links, as ages searching find.

The kindling ray that shot across the dark and dreariness-was it beneath or high aloft? What bard can answer this?There fecundating powers were found and mighty forces strove -A self-supporting mass beneath, and energy above.Who knows and whoever told, from whence this vast creation rose?No gods had been born. Who then can ever the truth disclosewhence sprang this world, whether framed by hand divine or no-Its lord in heaven alone can tell, if he can show.
