A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on seed, diversity, potential, flowers, fruits, cosmic consciousness, universe, real, and unreal
In the seed there is nothing but the seed - no diversity. At the same time there is the notion of potential diversity [of flowers, fruits] supposedly present in the seed. Even so, cosmic consciousness is one, devoid of diversity; yet the universe of diversity is said to exist only in notion.
