Upon what shelter these clouds float? Upon what basis the sun, moon,planets and stars move on their orbit? Rama, as the world of dream is shelteredby your will, same way these planets and the Bramhand too are sheltered by mightywill arisen from Bramha. As desire vanishes so Bramhand dissolves. As sunraysseem to be carrying water, blueness seems to have painted the sky, pearls seem tohave scattered in the sky, likewise, worlds, universes and Bramhand appear in theatma in the Self. As there is no count of sand and rays of sun, same way there isno count of Bramhandas. But still in reality they have never happened. Onlyvasanas, your passions are playing upon one another. Therefore Rama, drop out....."Holy Sire, what did Mahasiva do? Was he alone?"He had a shadow -- huge, blue sparkling brilliantly as if made of lightening.And she was dancing. She had three eyes, large eighteen arms with divine weapons.She appeared at times as she had two hands, then one thousand, then millions, thenonly one. Then no hand at all. No head, no feet, just trunk dancing. In her gait ofdance she covered the entire sky. There was no boundary of her tip and toe. Patalwas her feet, past Bramhalok her head. Lokalok her lips, wearing garlands ofplanets and rivers, exhaling breath of hurricane in which great mountains wereflying all over, water was spilling, wearing anklets of universes. And she wasdancing. Her ears had two large earrings of dharma and adharma. Four ambitionswere her breasts. Milk of the Vedas and sastras were dripping through hernipples. Entire Bramhand, mountains, rivers and planets shook and danced with hergait. Her nails were like moons. As mosquitoes fly by wind innumerable worlds flewfrom her form.As ocean feels all waves as its own form, she feels all universes as her ownform. The hairs of Lord Shiva were like peacock feathers and hers were like darkblue shining silk. And they were dancing. In a moment she would become thumbsize, in a moment huge, cosmic. All actions that happen in the world reflect in theform of Divine Mother like mirror reflecting the panoramic view. They weredancing."Holy Sire, Mahasiva and Divine Mother and their dance is very strange. Infinal dissolution nothing at all remains. How did you see creation in their bodies?After dissolution how worlds reflected in their bodies? How she reduced andincreased?""Dear Rama,"
