Teachings on Creation from Chandogya Upanishad

The Existent was here in the beginning alone and without a second.
It willed, ‘I may be much, let me multiply.’ It brought forth Fire.
The Fire willed, ‘I may be much, let me multiply.’ It brought forth water. Hence wherever a person is hot or sweats, water springs in that spot from fire.
The Water willed, ‘I may be much, let me multiply.’ It brought forth Food. Hence wherever it rains, food becomes plentiful: from water indeed spring food and eatables in that spot.
If something was not quite known, then know it for a combination of these three.
Chandogya Upanishad
