There was neither non-existence nor existence then;
there was neither the realm of space nor the sky beyond.
There was no distinguishing sign of night nor of day.
That One breathed, windless, by its own impulse.
Other than that there was nothing beyond.
Darkness was hidden by darkness in the beginning;
with no distinguishing sign, all this was water.
The life force that was, was covered with emptiness,
that one arose through the power of heat.
Desire came upon that one in the beginning;
that was the first seed of mind.
Rig Veda (B.C. 1200-900?)
