YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 1 | BOOK III | CHAP I
|| SEC III | VERSE 17-18 | PHASES OF THE SPIRIT ||
As the word < : phrase : > golden bracelet signifies no other thing than a bracelet made of gold , so the meaning of the word world is not different from its source — the Divine Will .
Again , as the word gold bears the idea of the substance of which the bracelet is made , so the word Brahman conveys the meaning of immensity which contains the world in it ; but the word world contains no idea of Brahman , nor bracelet that of gold .
