The Supreme Bliss
The First Teacher ISHVARA

|| COMMENTARY | SWAMI VIMUKTANANDA ||
The Ego , the Jiva in bondage , that identifies itself with the gross , subtle and causal bodies , undergoes various sufferings and strives for " liberation " .
The Cause — the efficient as well as the material cause .
Just as a spider weaves its net from the materials of its own body , so does ISHVARA create this Universe out of ITSELF .
