Mr Ashish Kumar

(It is difficult to comment about young author Mr Ashish Kumar and his mythological/spiritual writing.  He has well researched Hindu Philosophy, Science and quest of success beyond the material realms. I am really mesmerized.  I am sure you will be also amazed.  We are pleased to begin a series on excerpts from his well acclaimed book  “Samudramanthanam” .  According to Mr Ashish  “Samudramanthanam is less explained and explored till date. I have tried to give broad way of this one of the most important chapter of Hindu mythology. I have read many scriptures and take references from many temples and folk stories, to present the all possible aspects of portrait of Samudramanthanam.”  Now our distinguished readers will be able to read this series on every Saturday.)

 ☆ Weekly Column – Samudramanthanam -1 ☆ 


The flux of consciousness, energy, and matter in which nothing is inseparable is Shakti, “Maa Amavarunai”, from her ever-changing Rajas means Vishnu tattva make manifestation possible. When Sattva is about to reach on their threshold the interplay of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas generate first sound, the un-struck sound of ॐ ‘Om’. Then in fast vibrations, first there generate a source of light from center of vibrating Rajas of the Nabhi, Navel of Lord Vishnu. Same time the Tamas fall out separately, study without motion means Lord Shiva and that source of light is actually Lord Brahma, the father of all creature.

When one cycle is completed then again, all three Sattva, Rajas and Tamas merge in to one and complete darkness again. This is the process of manifestation and un-manifestation or creation and obliteration. This is ongoing from immortal time. No one can identify space and time separately in the phase of obliteration.

So, when that light source or Brahma is generated from the Nabhi, Navel of vibrating ‘Rajas’ or Vishnu. He saw that my source of generation is coming from center of vibrating energy. This thinking separated consciousness and matter in that light and a body is appear who is in panic because he was all alone. He bends his head towards that vibrating energy which was also taken the form of beautiful nature creation. So as consciousness of Brahma passes through energy and matter of hid body all his senesce generated then he asked from Lord Vishnu, “O! my creature, who I am and who are you? Why we are alone why I am emerging from your body part from where a beautiful amalgamation of matter (Lotus flower) is going outside, over which I am setting. Please say something because I am feeling very lonely and I am very fearful. I don’t know why my structure upper part has one hole (mouth) which is vibrating and a different sensation is going outside in this vast space? I just feel that something from my middle part of body (heart) is going towards my most upper part (brain) then some sensation is coming out from this hole (mouth)”
