The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

 The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad emphasizes that only experiential knowledge of Atman and Brahman (It is the Universal Self) can help to attain the state of Samadhi or Enlightenment.

It states that there was nothing before the Universe started. It was Prajapati who created the Universe from this nothingness as a sacrifice to himself. He imbued it with Prana Shakti (life force) in the form of “cosmic inert matter” and “individual psychic energy.”

It further clarifies that the world is more than just matter and energy alone. It also consists of Atman or Brahman as well as Knowledge. It states that the Soul is imperishable and invisible and is concealed pervading all reality.
