The Bible speaks of The Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
In Genesis (1:3) “And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.”
The Vedas speak of the primordial sound Aum from which the universe arises.
Panini (6.1.84) said that one word properly understood gives both liberation and achievement in life. This points to the value of mantra and the power of sound to lead us to liberation via effortless meditation.
Everything is everywhere. Some describe the universe as holographic – everything is contained in every part. But it’s more than that – everything contains not just everything else but more importantly, the wholeness that is more than all of it. Everything contains source – it is born of and exists in source. Source is everywhere present.
“Know That by knowing which nothing remains to be known.” Bhagavad Gita 7.2
“The sovereign secret and the supreme purifier.” Bhagavad Gita 9.2
“Know Thyself” inscribed on the Temple of Apollo at Delphi was also attributed to Socrates and Pythagoras, some of the founders of western thought.
