Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
At the time of creation Brahma, the creator accepts Prakrti but he remains liberated from it as he has no attachment to it. Except Brahma all the other beings having affinity of 'I'ness and 'mineness' for Prakrti (nature) and its evolute body etc., are bound and take birth and then die again and again i.e., their branches spread downward. The three kinds of birth because of the three modes of goodness, of passion and of ignorance are included in the expression 'Adhahlakham (Gita 14/18).
According to the first interpretation the universe does not remain fixed even for a 'Ksana' (moment), it is kaleidoscopic, the seen is changing into the unseen. It seems to exist like a mirage. The mere change appears as creation, existence or dissolution. It is because of its kaleidoscopic nature, that it is called 'Alvattham'.
- The tens 'Svah' stands for tomorrow. That which continues by tomorrow is '$vattha' and that which does not last even by tomorrow is 'Asvattha'.
- The philosophers have explained the term 'Ksana' (moment) in the following way—a needle pricks the lotus leaf in three moments—touch in the first moment, making the hole in the second moment, and palling the other side of the leaf in the third moment.
