A discovery of India
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An insight into the nation of India and it's past. The title song is hypnotic "Srishti ke pehle Sat nahin tha".., The tilte song theme was the Nasadiya Sukta from the Rig Veda (ancient Indian text). The translation from Sanskrit as done by Prof. Raimundo Panikkar:

"At first was neither Being nor Nonbeing. There was not air nor yet sky beyond. What was wrapping? Where? In whose protection? Was Water there, unfathomable deep?

There was no death then, nor yet deathlessness; of night or day there was not any sign. The One breathed without breath by its own impulse Other than that was nothing at all.

Darkness was there, all wrapped around by darkness, and all was Water indiscriminate, Then that which was hidden by Void, that One, emerging, stirring, through power of Ardor, came to be.

In the beginning Love arose, which was primal germ cell of mind. The Seers, searching in their hearts with wisdom, discovered the connection of Being in Nonbeing.

A crosswise line cut Being from Nonbeing. What was described above it, what below? Bearers of seed there were and mighty forces, thrust from below and forward move above.

Who really knows? Who can presume to tell it? Whence was it born? Whence issued this creation? Even the Gods came after its emergence. Then who can tell from whence it came to be?

That out of which creation has arisen, whether it held it firm or it did not, He who surveys it in the highest heaven, He surely knows - or maybe He does not!"
