Śakti – The Creative Consciousness
tvam āpas tvam bhūmis tvayi pariṇatāyām na hi param |
tvam eva svātmānam pariṇamayītum viśva-vapuṣā
chidānand’ākāram Śiva-yuvati-bhāvena bibhṛṣe || 35 ||
Thou art Air(Mind), Thou art Ākāśa, Thou art Fire, Thou art Water and Earth too;
When thou hast transformed Thyself in this way into the form of the Universe, there is nothing beyond not included in Thee.
It is to transform Thyself into the Universe
that thou assumes this form of Consciousness-Bliss as Śiva’s Awareness
