Abstract:

How did the world come into existence? Who created it? These questions always preoccupy human minds. What answers are given by the religious literature of the Vaishnava tradition? We find some description already in Vedic literature, then in the epics (for example, in the Bhagavadgītā, belonging to the 6th parvan of the Mahābhārata, the text translated into Polish by Professor Joanna Sachse also) and later, in the richly developing religious literature of the numerous Hindu traditions. In the article I concentrate on a version from the one of the most authoritative texts of the Vaiṣṇava Pāñcarātra tradition, which is an early Tantric stream within Vaishnavism, developing mostly in South India. Some considerations concerning the scheme of creation proposed by the text will be exemplified in the Polish translation of chapter 26, entitled Loka – The World.
