Creation is an unfathomable secret. Nature has this tendency, at night it conceals the whole world in its darkness and then in the day it brings it out.

A seed sprouts in a very secret manner, underneath the ground. Once it sprouts, it comes out of the ground and shows itself up. The roots go deep into the soil. The taller the tree, the deeper it's roots. So every expression has the opposite of it which is non-expression - the secret.

There are five secrets which are sacred and guarded by the subtle beings and angels in this creation: Janana Rahasya (the secret of birth): Birth is a secret. How a soul takes a body, the criteria for selecting the place of birth, time of birth, type of body, parents, are all a secret.

Marana Rahasya (the secret of death): Death is a highly guarded secret and remains a mystery. The process of separation of spirit from matter and its journey then on is a secret.

Raja Rahasya (the secret of ruling): The principles of governing and of maintaining orderliness in creation are a secret.

Prakriti Rahasya (the secret of nature): The more you know about nature, the mystery deepens. Science, knowledge of particles, wave functions, black holes, the vacuum state, though appearing to resolve the mystery in creation, has deepened it. The more a scientist knows, the more he feels there is much more to know.

Mantra Rahasya (the secret of mantras): The mantras and their effect, influence, method and mode of working are all a mystery. Mantras are the impulses or rhythms of consciousness which, itself, is a mystery.

Spirituality is the technology of consciousness, and the whole world is the play and display of consciousness. One who is not amazed by the magnificence of this creation, his eyes are not yet opened. And, life itself is the biggest mystery. Being completely immersed in the mystery of life and this creation is samadhi. Getting steeped in mystery is devotion.

Honouring and accepting it, the secret is revealed.
