True seeker understands the oneness of Yogah (unmanifest) and Vibhuthi (manifest) form of lord
Object to the Subject.
Just as clay has the potential to become a pot
The Lord has the potential or śakti to become the universe.
The visible form is called vibhūti.
The non-manifest form of this power is yoga
Such a seeker will graduate from viewing the world as illusory. ( Maya )

22. I am Samavēda among the Vēdas, I am Indra among the Gods; I am the mind among the senses and I am the intelligence in all beings.
For moksha, we need to realise God
What is our idea of God?
-Creator-Saguna, with form
-Conscious & all-powerful
Details are vague, inferred
Creation and its Causes
•Intelligent cause seems obvious (God as Creator) –Aparoksha jnanam
•Material cause - not clear, incomplete knowledge
Question: What is the material God uses?
Answer: God himself
A few are named to meditate upon
Krishna names 72 important ones
We can choose to meditate on any particular one based on our inclination
Take home message
“I am the intelligence in all beings”
God is both the Intelligent and Material Cause
Material Cause can never be away from the effect
Ishwara is always in everything and everything is in Ishwara
We should revere everything around us as they are the glories of God
