Our Concept of Creation and Cosmic Mind is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in 1969. This discourse is the fifth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 33.[1]

Synopsis

With the increase in psychic power, fierce physical potentialities go on waning, and at the stage of human beings the power of protection lies more with the mind than with the body. Though the acquired tendencies of the animal play no mean role in the life of human beings, the developed ego-consciousness or intellectual faculty finds adequate expression in their behaviour. It is they alone who have the power to introspect within the real nature of their existence and find its final abode, or generative place. Animal consciousness identifies body-consciousness with the existential consciousness, but human consciousness tries to investigate on the synthetic plane.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that the cosmic mind is a composite of cosmic mahattattva (the feeling of I exist), ahaḿtattva (I do) and citta (done I). A description of the differences between the cosmic mind and the unit mind are given. Anandamurti then explains the differences between the theory of mechanism vs vitalism. Mechanism describes the origin of life as interactions of molecules constituting the body. He says that if we are to agree to such an approach, we will have to admit that life comes from that which is lifeless. Anandamurti goes on saying that life and creation is an evolution from simple unicellular organisms and plants to more developed animals and human beings. Only human beings have the capacity to reflect upon the real meaning of their existence. Only they can reach life's consummation, in which the unit mind merges in the supreme abode of eternal bliss.[1]
