Poorva Khanda
When Svayambhu (who originates on his own) Brahman happened to be filled with desires, he became the creator. Then Kamesvara and Vaisravana came into being. Vaisravana belonged to the class of Rishis called Valakhilya who were of the size of the thumb.
Vaisravana asked Brahman seven questions.
What is the Vidya (philosophy and practice) of the Worlds?
Who is the deity? Who is the deity of the Jagrat (waking state) and Turya [the fourth state beyond Jagrat, Swapna (dream) and Susupti

Tejo Bindu Upanishad – Sarvam Chinmatra mevahi

Lord Shiva

The second chapter of the Upanishad is the conversation between Lord Siva and Lord Kumara who asked Lord Siva to explain about Chinmatra or the partless one essence which is indivisible.

Lord Siva replies.

The Chinmatra is the visible, the world, the existence, Atman or Self, the mantra and its action, knowledge, water, Earth, Akasa, the books and the three Vedas, the Brahman or Supreme Being, the vow of austerity, the Jivatman, one that has no origin (unborn), Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, Lord Rudra, I , Atman, Guru, inference, radiance, body, Manas, Chitta, Pleasure, Vidya, imperishable, transcendent, supreme, the gross, the subtle, that ought to be preferred, everything and there is nothing other than Chinmatra. Nothing. It is ought to be known. It is I. It is you. It is mysterious. It is the knower. It is the knowledge. Mother, Father, Brother, Husband, Sutra, Viraj. It is the head, the body. It is within and it is without. It is complete. It is the nectar. Clan. Home. Sun. Moon and stellar region. It is the corn-field. Tranquil. Patience. Quality. Witness. King. City. Kingdom. Om. Chanting. Meditation. Radiance. Wealth. Oblation. Victory. Heaven. Atman.

Absolute consciousness is Chinmatra. Conceiving all things as Chinmatra is absolute consciousness. All the world is absolute consciousness. Matter and time are absolute consciousness. Everything is absolute consciousness. Self is embodied-consciousness. Apart from consciousness, there is no desire, no knowledge, no mantra, no God, No truth, No treasure or like. Everything, whatsoever it is or wheresoever it is, to the extent it goes, is absolute consciousness. Distance makes no barrier. You are that Chinmatra. You are that.

He who knows, even once, that he is in the form of Brahman, becomes liberated.

The main teaching of this Upanishad in this chapter is Sarvam Chinmatra mevahi. Everything is Chinmatra only. Meditate upon that Chinmatra, the absolute consciousness, the indivisible one essence.

Our sages declare, Gods are not out of Chinmatra. Call it by any name. Eswar, Allah or Christ. All are Chinmatra only. Meditate upon that Chinmatra.
