"That which really is, cannot go out of existence, though it may change the forms through which it appears, just as that which is non-existent cannot come into being. The soul is and cannot cease to be."
- Sri Aurobindo, Essays On The Gita (via trippy-taoist)
"With monotheism, the idea of one God, develops the idea that that God creates ex nihilo, out of nothing. There’s a transcendent divine reality, there’s a worldly physical reality, they’re two separate things. But India does something quite different. India says, ‘Perhaps that divinity creates from itself. It doesn’t make sense to create ex nihilo, we never see anything arising out of nothing.’ So here we have a God who emanates, who creates ex deo, from himself. And from that we get a world which maintains the divine as a pervasive part of its own reality."
