Pauri 2(Creation)
First of all, when no breath and body was there nothing was visible in the pitch darkness.
The body was created through the blood(of mother) and semen (of father) and the five elements were joined judiciously.
Air, water, fire and earth was put together.
The fifth element sky (void) was kept in between and creator God, the sixth one, invisibly permeated among all.
To create the human body, five elements and twenty five qualities opposite to each other were joined and mixed.
Four life originating mines (egg foetus sweatborn , vegetation) and four speeches(para, pasyanti, madhyama, vaikhari) were assimiliated into each other andthe drama of transmigration was enacted.
