Brahma Sutra 1.1.2

Brahma Sutra

 – Sutra 1.1.2



Janmadyasya Yatah – I.1.2

Literal Meaning : Janmadi: origin etc.; Asya: of this (world); Yatah: from which.
(Brahman is that) from which the origin etc., (i.e. the origin, sustenance and dissolution) of this (world proceeds).

Alternates : a) Janmaadi, Asya – This, It’s, yatah – because, since, from… where
b) Janma * Adhya * Asya – Yatah
Adhya – today, present, now (occult meaning: knowledge)…
c) Janma * Aadhya * Asya – Yatah
Aadhya – first, foremost, most important…
d) Janma * Aadi – Asya * Yatah

Alternate Meanings According To Me :

1) Because of Brahman only, the origin & the dimensional evolving of universes leading to dissolution happens & without Brahman, the natural evolution of cosmogony is never bound to happen…

2) Origin & maintenance of THIS (our present visible) universe is because of this… Now if you take my 1-3 of the alternate meaning of first sutra, it may be implied here that the brahmajijnaasu are the people who make and rule their own universes, because they get aligned with the creator realizing, atman is not separate from the whole…
Most of the time, brahmins (those who understand Brahman) when they group together, link alternate meaning of previous sutras and meaning of whole scenario is interpreted exponentially differently… It is the best fun in the world for several days & the real BrahmaYajna… Too bad that there are only a handful of real brahmins in this world now… And they seldom interact with animalistic people of this world…

3) Extending the alternate meaning 10th of first sutra, you can see that the universal consciousness in it’s inherent ability to think and desire about itself, thought about it & duality became… the second sutra in turn explains that this thought was the primary reason for the origin, evolution & extension of the present visible universe… Kabbalistic principle & Egyptian cosmogony, though with hidden symbols; expounds the same meaning for those who have eyes to see & ears to listen…

4) From section b; The first principle was & always is present in the three states of time; refuting the conventional mortal low science discovery of “The Arrow Of Time”. The practical meaning of this would be that, the origin & sustenance of this visible universe is not in a linear; but sphere form in which the origin can be touched by your mind anytime you are willing to forego your past, present & future to live in them all at the same moment… It is the basic principle of Vasishta yoga – “The Confluence Of Opposites”

5) Second occult meaning from section b; “Janmaa+adhya” (as knowledge) “asya yata” – From this…
The Secret Knowledge Of Occult, Tantra, Entities, Lesser Gods, Guardians, Alternate Universes, The Ancient Ones etc. ALL ORIGINATE (Janmaa taken as it’s bhava of action or kriya) from Brahmajijñasa – according to previous verse; or taken literally within the second sutra – From Brahman itself… Both of these concepts can be thought upon for days…

6) Section c; The first & foremost principle of the origin of duality was indeed that; & because of that first principle which originated; all other dependent elements could be readily discerned from the Avýaktha… (Maya in it’s compound form or female principle before it became power)

7) Retro meaning (this is really fun!!!) that implies taking “yatah”as since; joining with the first sutra; you get : Brahmajijñasa is the only way to escape the excruciating recurring pain & agony of the circle of the dream of birth & dying; BECAUSE Origin & everything depending on it is the direct result of THAT… (Again we have split meaning here for Brahman & Desire of Brahman as Sada?iva)
I am only mentioning the most direct meanings of sutras here; but there are literally hundred’s of cross referenced meanings of each sutraas… You could hear them in Brahmayajna Satras by Brahmajnanís in some of the temples in india… But it is becoming less & less popular nowadays… No wonder, people are more interested in developing their animal instincts; then, where is the time for scriptures ???
