Śuddhasṛṣṭi (शुद्धसृष्टि).—The first phase of the manifestation of the universe is called "Śuddha-sṛṣṭi" or "pure creation". The transition from absolute transcendence of the Godhead to physical manifestation begins with the Highest Brahman—Vāsudeva, whose nature consists of Existence (sat), Consciousness (cit) Bliss (ānanda), Eternality (ananta) and Impeccability (amalam). It is during this phase that the six attributes of the Supreme Being make their appearance (ṣaḍguṇa, or 'Six Incommunicable Attributes').
