The duality of Universal consciousness, paired Universe

Number Two (dvi)----the duality of Universal consciousness


(The Sanskrit words in italic can be found in the Sanskrit-English Dictionary by Sir. Monier Williams

The Sanskrit words are ITRANS version as in the above mentioned dictionary.
This is written following the teaching of Rishi (seer) Shri Bijoy Krrishna Chattopdhyay of Howrah (also
was called Howrahs Thakur---The God in Howrah) and his principal disciple Shri. Tridibnath
Bandyopadhaya, the seers who preached the Vedas.)

Number Two (dvi).
Two is that aspect of Consciousness which represents the state of duality of Consciousness. It is a
matter of normal observation that the organs of perception by which we perceive the world is dual in
most of the creatures, like two eyes or two ears. The physical science also shows the duality like positive
and negative charges, centripetal and centrifugal forces, actions and reactions.
The entire universe is digitized in numerous ways. Any continuity is interspersed by break. The beginning
and end, the day and night, life and death, crest and trough, the space or void everywhere between
two physical objects (like inter atomic space) and so on. The word digit seems have its root in the
Sanskrit word dvija meaning twice born thus signifying the duality.
Pole or meru
Our Guru has explained the word meru (meaning pole in Sanskrit) as mae rupae or my two forms.
Thus Consciousness in the process of defining or creating the universe, reveals the bi-polarity or duality.
The basic duality of Consciousness, (and so of all of us), is to speak & to listen. In Consciousness, to
speak means to make or to create. In Consciousness, to listen means to feel what is created. In
Universal Consciousness, feeling what is created also includes all the states of the creature or the
creature itself in all its entirety. We never speak a single word without listening to what we speak.
Jaatavedas-the name of agni (fire, revealing Universal Consciousness)
Thus the Vedas have addressed Consciousness as jaatavedas meaning jaata (generating or creating) +
vedas (knowing or feeling).It is for this reason, Vedas are called shruti which means the act of listening.
The alphabets making the duality.
Two is dvi in Sanskrit. dvi is related to dyU or div (divinity) which means revealing.

The alphabet da in Sanskrit is a dental consonant. It signifies all the aspects of Consciousness
regarding dent, detonate and donate. The corresponding words in Sanskrit are : danta (tooth), dyut(to
break, illuminate, irradiate), da (to donate, to give).
The word danta (tooth>dental) is related to word or speech. The articulated words are processed
through the teeth. The articulated, formed, defined or processed words are called vaakya. In
Consciousness the words have materialized as the universe or creation. In us, our words are ideas or
definitions in the mind. Our words remains within the bound of our individual mind or inner space (also
called antaraakaasha---inner sky). We cannot create an object in the external. The physical world is held
in the mind of the Universal Consciousness which we feel as the space outside. The external world is
made of the words of Universal Consciousness. The faculty of Consciousness by which Consciousness
splits or radiates as a separate or dual entity is called vaak. vaak is the root of all vaakya or
processed words or defined entity. vaak is also described as vidyut or electricity. vidyut means,
vi(bidual)+ dyut(denotes)the one which splits or detonates and creates dual from Oneness. It
donates duality.
These two alphabets, da and va are the constituents of the word dvi (two). The alphabet i
represents motion or movement or action. The act of speaking is called vada and is also made of the
two alphabets va & da.
The tongue of the goddess.
The tongue is the tool of articulation of the words in the air or in the career medium. The tongue
articulates and gives birth to the formed word or formation. It also tastes or feels. The tongue with
the series of teeth are the artifacts of the Consciousness, Her aids in the creation.
Thus, there is a Vedic hymn on goddess vaak:
oShThaapidhanam asi (covered by the lips) nakulI(without roots, cast & creed)
dantaih parivRitaa (surrounded by the teeth) pavi (flowing and cleansing)
jihvae (on my tongue) maa(never) vihavlah(falter)
chaaru (charming) vaacham (words) videhah maM(bestow on me)
Covered by the lips
Surrounded by the teeth
You, flowing and cleansing
Never falter on my tongue
Bestow on me the charming words.
The two tongues and Algebra.

The inner tongue is called alijihvaa (the uvula or soft palate). The academicians say that Algebra is
from Arabic word al-jabr as the subject mathematics was called by that name; however we have learnt
from our Guru that the word is from the root word alijihvaa meaning the inner tongue where lie the
roots of the words. The subject Algebra deals with the roots and in Indian language (like in Bengali) it is
called vIja (seed) gaNita(mathematics) or the mathematics of the seeds or roots.
The Universal Pairvaak and praaNa (earth and the fire; the shell and the spirit)
vaak is the shakti or faculty of Consciousness. Faculty of Consciousness is Consciousness. As vaak
makes Consciousness active, the active personality of Consciousness is called praaNa. Thus vaak is the
consort or shakti of praaNa. The whole universe is created from the conjugal pair, vaak and
praaNa. vaak splits, cuts, fragments Universal One or Consciousness into many and each such
fragment is a vaakya or a word. Thus all our feelings, senses are accompanied by words or sound. We
feel means we listen. We do not talk without listening. Thus in you, inside you or in your consciousness,
in every moment you are splitting as a word or in a form. This is as you speak. And every form or shape
you take, you feel it; i.e. it becomes an entity of yours and this is your listening.
These are the two basic actions by which we all live : speaking and listening. Speaking is associated with
vaak and listening is associated with praaNa or senses.
This universal pair, praaNa and vaak, is the mithuna or the copulation behind any creation. This is
also known as div / dyu (heaven) and bhU (earth), saama and Rik, agni (fire) and pRithivI(earth)
in the Vedas.
Dual manifestation of vaak, praaNa and manas (mind).
In the process of creation, trinity, or three major steps of Universal Consciousness are observed. These
are vaak, praaNa and manas. Each step is a personality and these three are also known as the three
major deities.
Now, each step or each step of revelation happens in two forms. One form is called, jyotI rUpa and the
other as sharIr.
jyotI ruPa means the shining (jyoti) or revealing form(rUpa). jyoti is related to the root word /alphabet
ja which is connected to the words related to generation like jan (to cause to be born), jaata (born).
Thus the word actually means the revealing origin.
Thus the Vedas (Upanishads) have said:
(i)

tasyoi (that) bachah(Vaaks) pRithivI(earth) sharIram(is the body),


jyotirUpam(illuminated form is) ayam(this) agni(fire)

The body of vaak is the earth (pRithivIwho sustains segregated existence in defined forms) and the
revealing form is fire (agniwho is cast or made in a form). Thus every expression, every identity is the
body made by vaak and is called pRithivI. In Vedas, the word pRithivI or earth has been used

synonymously with the word sharIra or body. Every word is a definition of Consciousness; every word is
a shape of Consciousness or praaNa and shaped by the faculty of Consciousness called vaak. Thus
vaak is the mother of all the words. This entire universe is made of the union of praaNa with vaak. (You
may refer to Chandogya Upanishad.)
Thus fire is there inside the earth, spirit is there inside the body, emotions are there inside a word. vaak
always defines Herself as vakya or the formed /defined word. This is pRithivI, the defined and isolated
existence; the lonely earth.
In nature this is revealed as earth and electricity. Electricity, thunder ignites and produces fire when it
is earthed. This is also exhibited by the behavior of the earth as the enormous ground or sink of
electrical charges.
(ii)

atha(and) aetasya(this) praaNasya(Praanas) aapah(ap/water) sharIram (is the body)


jyotIrUpam(the illuminated form is) asou(that) chandramaa(moon).

The body of praaNa is water and the revealing form is this moon.
praaNa holds the entire creation to rear them up and controls them to get them back in the origin.
praaNa is the revealing moon or lunar plane which controls all our cycles of birth and rebirth and our
evolution. The body of praaNa is ap or water(acquirement of Consciousness and the state of
satisfaction where no thirst or desire is existing) where we as praaNas acquirement remain.
(iii)

atha(and) aetasya(this) manasah(minds) dyouh(the divinity or heaven) sharIram (is the


body), jyotiRupam(the illuminated form is) asou (that) adityah (aditya/sun).

The body of the mind is the divinity and the revealing form is the sun.
In the mind all the dimensional world is held in the form of seed. In our Consciousness, where we see
the dimensional world is called 'mind'. They are all in One, in singularity or in aditya. aditya is the one
who is the son of aditi (aditi= a/without + diti/duality). The sun is aditya as the sun is same to all of us,
as the sun looks at every one , illuminates every one. It is the revealing, self-illuminated sphere in our
external sky and is the plane of revelation or divinity. Thus, sun is aditya, the son of aditi who is the
mother of the deities. The sun is dominating on the entire physicality, the vision, the shape, the
dimensional world and is controlling our time. Controlling time means, assimilating us, bringing us back
to Oneness. So is the name aditya. (Refer first Chapter of Brihadaranyaka Upanishad.) This control of
time is distributed in us through the lunar plane and implemented in us through the terrestrial plane.
Whatever could be a revelation, it is from the mind. When mind is known like this, it is called divine
mind. So, mind is also called the third eye. (See Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, First chapter).

svaahaa and svadhaa

agni (fire), the self-revealing Consciousness has two wives named svaahaa and svadhaa. They are the
faculty (Shakti) of agni. svaahaa means: sva(soul/self) + ah (call). The name by which the Consciousness
calls Consciousness, Consciousness becomes the same, i.e. Consciousness creates the entity defined by
that name . Thus Consciousness is called svyaam (soul/self) prakaasha(revealing). Thus this universe is
the call of Consciousness. (This also explains why the English word call is phonetically similar to the
Sanskrit word kaala and that in ancient time this knowledge was not limited to a certain geographical
area.)
Another aspect is svadhaa. svadhaa=sva (soul/ self) + dhaa (to hold)it is that faculty of Universal
Consciousness by which Consciousness holds every bit of creation in HERSELF (in Consciousness).
Vision creating the duality, di-vision
Thus as the duality is created out of Oneness; the revealing plane (div/dyu, divinity/heaven) is set for
subsequent creation. This revealing plane or revelation is the vision or eye. This is video or vid. vid
in Sanskrit means to know. To know means to become. To become means creation or formation.
Our eyes receive or see forms. In Universal consciousness, vision is both creative and receptive. Our
vision is a part of Universal Consciousness.
The Sanskrit word di means division or it implies duality. Thus it is division or di +vision or the
vision that creates duality. The physical seat of this vision or eye is the sun in our planetary system and
is the source of vision or light as well as the source of time or kaala. This has also been addressed in
the Vedas as the heaven like eye of viShNu------divi(div or heaven/ divine plane) iva (like) chakShu(eye)
aatatam(spread all over) the eye(vision) spread all over like the divinity (or revealing everything).(Rik
Veda).
As explained below, Vedic word IkshaNa means to see and also action of time.
indra and Virochana ---the two observers and the number thousand.
indra is the king of the deities and the son of aditi (a + diti = without duality). The word indra means
idam (it) + dra (seeing)----who is the observer and who is always seeing like, it is grass, it is flower, it
is universe..and so on. indra sees everything in One. It has been mentioned in the Vedas that indra has
thousands of eyes. indra has been called sahasra (thousand) lochana(eyed). sahasra etymologically
means saha(along with + sravati (flowing----root word is sru). So, sahasra or thousand means atmana
saha ((along with immutable soul or ONE) sravati (flowing)----flowing along with the immutable soul .
Thus is indra, who sees everything in immutable soul or Oneness. Another name of 'indra' is 'indha'.
'indha' means ' one who is flagrant', i.e. one who reveals or makes the 'vision'.
The king of asura is known as virochana. He is the son of diti. diti is the personality or the aspect of
Consciousness who is the mother of duality.
virochana etymologically means = vi (bidifferent) + rochna (shine, shine of the eye) = who has
different view or who is shining to reveal difference.

He is asura. asura means asu (praaNa) + ra (ra~njana--- dyeing/colouring). Thus asura means those who
are obsessed by the shine or colour of praaNa and they dont see the source of the shine. Thus duality
prevails on them.
Meaning of differentanya and second
The word anya means different, different person or entity. Etymologically, anya means,
anya=an+ya= controlled by an/animation or praaNa. Thus whatever is second or different is anya
and under the control of praaNa. It is noteworthy that second means a different entity or a different
person and it is also a term for the unit of time or a measure of the action of praaNa.
Creation of Chromosomes / mithuna (copulation) in the beginning.(The paired universe).
(Below is briefly what the Seer in Brihadarnyaka Upanishad has described about the creation of duality in
the beginning as seen in the Universal Consciousness. These are not some 'simplistic' theory. These are
the descriptions, in simple words, of the beginning of creation as experienced in Universal
Consciousness. We don't need as pre-requisite, any knowledge of a complicated theory or science. We
can know it by our natural association with the Universal Consciousness as we are part and parcel of
Universal Consciousness.)
In the beginning only Soul or One (aatman) was there but in a state of 'about to become many'. (This
about to become many is described by a term called 'puruShavidha'. The word can be broken in two
parts:
puruShavidha = puruSha +vidha.
puruSha= pur(shell or abode, dimension or body) + Sha (dissected or fragmented).
vidha= kind or form. It also means 'pierced or perforated'.
So, here 'puruShavidha' means who is about to become 'many in different dimensions'.)
He desired to be in micros (aNu--atom). (The words used in Upanishad is sah anuvIkShya. This means (i)
He looked minutely; (ii) He longed / thought to become minute or split. The language of Sanskrit is also
known as the language of gods. Every word is surprisingly potential and scientific. The word, vIkShya is
originating from the root, vi+ IkSh. The root word IkSh means: to see, to activate time, to desire, to
think. The noun form IkShaNa means I {action, shakti, faculty} + kShaNa{dimension of time} and also
it means look , thought. These all are same in Consciousness; to see means to reveal; Consciousness
desires to reveal; revelation means action of time or flow of time.)
( Creation of 'I am').
HE (the soul or Universal One) looked around minutely and could not see any One else but HIM
(ONENESS). HE first emerged (from absolute Oneness) as 'I am' ('aham asmi').

This is why even now, if anyone is invited (or called), the one first says 'I am so and so' and then the one
'mentions other names (things)as applicable'. As HE burnt (ouShat) the sins before (pUrva), so HE is
called 'puruSha'. (Duality is the root of 'sin' or sense of 'sin'. If there is only 'ONENESS' who will commit
sin to whom; if there is ONENESS, there is neither sin nor virtue. As HE was ONE before all duality is
created, so it is said that 'HE burnt all the sins beforehand'.)
(Creation of fear and loneliness)
HE was afraid. This is why anyone who is alone gets the fear. Then HE thought "since there can be none
other than me then from whom I will have the fear". This is why HIS fear disappeared. Fear is created
from the sense of duality.
(Since in the beginning HE could not see any one else but 'ONENESS', so already the 'sense of else or
sense of duality' was created along with ONENESS. The above describes how the sense of 'fear' and
'loneliness' was created in the Universal Consciousness.)
But HE could not rejoice.
(In Upanishad, the word 'ram' is used for rejoice. 'ram' is a verb and means 'to enjoy, to stay with, to
cohabit sexually' etc. The root word is from the alphabet 'r' which signifies revealing consciousness or
agni/ praaNa or fire. The alphabet 'm' represents the earth, mortality or shell.) Thus the word 'ram'
signifies the coupling of praaNa (fire) with vaak (earth). This is why, everywhere in creation, the life or
praaNa or a creature is found with 'spirit' (fire) and 'dimension or body'{earth}).
This is why none alone can rejoice. So HE wanted to become 'second/different'. HE became only that
much as is defined by a 'female and male perfectly embraced by each other'. HE, thus divided HIM in
two. Thus was created the husband and the wife.
{After this, Upanishad has used the term strI which means s(sRishTi/creation)+tra(three)+I (energy,
faculty, shakti) -----the three fundamental faculties of Consciousness corresponding to three primary
manifestation or trinity. Upanishad has mentioned that any void is full of strI. So, void is not really void,
it is full of Consciousness, it is full of Mothers who are in the background of creation!
It is also like the loneliness or vacuum is removed by the 'wife'.
There is a name called bahula in Chandogya Upanishad. This name has been ascribed to a form of agni
or 'praaNa'. bahula means, who is characterized for producing many or existing in numerous forms
bahula is associated with void or sky in Vedic texts. The space or void that we see between any two
entities is actually the faculty of Universal Consciousness who have created many and keeping them
segregated or maintaining their individual existence. There is void between two physical objects; there is
void between two minds. So, this sky is full of the Mother or Mothers energy creating and supporting
the numerous forms of existence or HER numerous children}.
HE copulated and human beings were created.

(My understanding of this sentence is: HE copulated and beings of higher orders and up to human
beings were created'; because after this, creation of animals or creation of first copulation of animal
plane has been described. Two very significant words have been used (i) to represent copulation in the
higher plane descending to human being and (ii) to represent the copulation in the lower plane. For the
higher plane, the word is sam abhavat. The word sam stands for sameness, parallel etc.
sam abhavat could mean union happened with the feeling of sameness {or same is in union with
same}. This also provides cues to why in Mythology and in Bible, incest has been mentioned. For the
animal plane the word tir{tiras} has been used. tiras has two meaning. It means skewed or oblique. It
also means secretly away. It is stated in the text that after the creation up to human beings {which
has been described as 'with sameness}, the female form' thought "how HE could come into me when I
am created from HIM!". So, SHE decided to hide. Here the word tir or tiras has been used. The actual
word in the text is tiroasani---tirah asani, which means SHE disappeared. It is told that, after human
beings(or seeds of human beings) are created, SHE disappeared when the next series of copulation to
start. SHE became a cow and then HE became an ox to copulate and similarly other male and female
animal pairs were described for first copulations which created the species. The significance is, that the
word tiras also means skewed and is contrast to the word sam(meaning straight or same) used for
describing the word copulation of the species who are mentally superior to animals'. Also, it is
noteworthy that animals are called titya~nch and the word tiryak meaning bent is also used to
describe animal kingdom. Thus as the creation or the revelation or the light (of aditya) descends, it
becomes skewed and skewed, bent and bent, as happens when the light is refracted from a rarer
medium (divinity) to the denser and denser medium toward stark physicality. Thus it is said in
Upanishad (Chandogya), ... doureva(divinity) tirashchIn(bent) vansha(stem, genealogy, spine)--divinity reveals as the bent stem of genealogy.
