अनाद्यन्तं जगद्बीजं यद्ब्रह्मास्ति निरामयम् ।
भारूपं शुद्धचिन्मात्रं कलाकलनवर्जितम् ॥ १४ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
anādyantaṃ jagadbījaṃ yadbrahmāsti nirāmayam |
bhārūpaṃ śuddhacinmātraṃ kalākalanavarjitam || 14 ||

Vasishtha replied:—This elementary body which is the seed of the world, is the undecaying Brahma, who is without beginning and end, and of the form of pure light and intellect, and devoid of parts and attributes.
