Yogānandin: सोऽहम् so'ham im Kontext (Rohfassung)

बृहदारण्यक उपनिषद् bṛhadāraṇyaka upaniṣad 1.4.1

I-iv-1: In the beginning, this (universe) was but the self (Viraj) of a human form. He reflected and found nothing else but himself.
In the beginning, this universe was the self (Viraj) alone, in the shape of a person. He reflected and saw nothing else but His self.


c) सोऽहम् अस्मीत्यग्रे व्याहरत् so'ham asmīty agre vyāharat

[so aham asmi iti vyā aharat]

He first uttered, I am he (he I am)
He first said: I am He (he I am)
Er sagte zuerst: Er bin Ich
Il dit d’abord: je suis lui (lui je suis)
Él dijo primero : yo soy eso (eso soy yo)
Ele disse primeiro: Eu sou isso (isso sou eu)
Egli disse prima : Io sono lui (lui sono io)
Ell va dir primerament: Ell sóc jo.

Hence, to this day, when a person is addressed, he first says, ‘It is I,’ and then says the other name that he may have. Because he was first and before this whole (band of aspirants) burnt all evils, therefore he is called Purusha. He who knows thus indeed burns one who wants to be (Viraj) before him.
I-iv-2: He was afraid. Therefore people (still) are afraid to be alone. He thought, ‘If there is nothing else but me, what am I afraid of ?’ From that alone his fear was gone, for what was there to fear ? It is from a second entity that fear comes.
I-iv-3: He was not at all happy. Therefore people (still) are not happy when alone. He desired a mate. He became as big as man and wife embracing each other. He parted this very body into two. From that came husband and wife. Therefore, said Yajnavalkya, this (body) is one-half of oneself, like one of the two halves of a split pea. Therefore this space is indeed filled by the wife. He was united with her. From that men were born.
{1} In the beginning, this universe was the self (Viraj) alone, in the shape of a person. He reflected and saw nothing else but His self. He first said: "I am He." Therefore He came to be known by the name I (Aham). Hence, even now, when a person is addressed, he first says: "It is I," and then says whatever other name he may have. And because He, before (purva) the whole group of aspirants, burnt (aushat) all evils, therefore He is called Purusha. He who knows this verily burns up him who wishes to be Viraj in advance of him.

{2} He was afraid. Therefore people still are afraid when alone. He thought: "Since there is nothing else but Myself, what am I afraid of?" Thereupon His fears were gone; for what was there to fear? Assuredly, it is from a second entity that fear arises.

{3} He was not at all happy. Therefore a person even today is not happy when alone. He desired a mate. He became the size of a man and wife in close embrace. He divided this body into two. From that division arose husband (pati) and wife (patni). Therefore, as Yajnavalkya said, the body before one accepts a wife is one half of oneself, like the half of a split pea. Therefore this space is indeed filled by the wife. He was united with her. From that union human beings were born.
