THERE is one Infinite Eternal, Changeless Existence, the All. From That all comes forth ; to That all returns. "One only, without a second."* That includes within Itself all that ever has been, is, and can be. As a wave rises in the ocean, a universe rises in the All. As the wave sinks again into the ocean, a universe sinks again into the All, As the ocean is water, and the wave a form or manifestation of the water, so is there one Existence, and the universe is a form, or manifestation, of the Existence. " All this verily (is) Brahman."
