The various things starting with earth for sure should have had an origin.
That origin also cannot have come into existence without a base or originator.
That origin cannot be an inanimate/unintelligent being; nor can it be one without lordship.
Hence, Oh Lord! I realize that You are the one earlier to and creator of the world!
1. kShit - earth; kartRu - maker; adhiShTana - base;
jaDa - inanimate; vidhAtA - creator
2. The Hindu philosophies in general analyze the
relationship between three things:
i) Lifeless things - earth ....
ii) souls who live - plants to human to super-intelligent beings
and iii) God.
Lifeless things cannot "create" others. So the first of the three
cannot be the creator.
Even if it has life/intelligence unless that intelligent being
also has lordship over the system It cannot create.
So given that the souls only evolve in the system, but
have not created the system itself, nor can they be the creator.
Hence it is God, Who is neither lifeless thing nor a soul,
but an intelligent super being that does not go through
evolution is the creator.
