The creation subsists by the energy of the Supreme Brahman and, after annihilation, merges into the Supreme Brahman. From this we can understand that the Absolute Truth can be categorized in three cases-ablative, instrumental and locative. According to these three cases, the Absolute Truth is positively personified. In this connection, Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī quotes the Aitareya Upaniṣad (1.1.1): #dl##dd##dl##dd#ātmā vā idam eka evāgra āsīn nānyat kiñcana mīṣat sa īkṣata lokān nu sṛjā iti.#/dd##/dl##/dd##/dl# Similarly, in the Śvetāśvatara Upaniṣad (4.9) it is stated: #dl##dd##dl##dd#chandāṁsi yajñāḥ kratavo vratāni#/dd# #dd#bhūtaṁ bhavyaṁ yac ca vedā vadanti#/dd# #dd#yasmān māyī sṛjate viśvam etat#/dd# #dd#tasmiṁś cānyo māyayā sanniruddhaḥ#/dd##/dl##/dd##/dl# And in the Taittirīya Upaniṣad (3.1): #dl##dd##dl##dd#yato vā imāni bhūtāni jāyante, yena jātāni jīvanti, yat prayanty abhisaṁviśanti, tad vijijñāsasva, tad brahma.#/dd##/dl##/dd##/dl# This was the answer given by father Varuṇa when questioned by his son Vāruṇī Bhṛgu about the Absolute Truth. In this mantra, the word yataḥ, the Absolute Truth from which the cosmic manifestation has emanated, is in the ablative case; that Brahman by which this universal creation is maintained is in the instrumental case (yena); and that Brahman into which the whole cosmic manifestation merges is in the locative case (yat or yasmin). It is stated in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (1.5.20): #dl##dd##dl##dd#idaṁ hi viśvaṁ bhagavān ivetaro#/dd# #dd#yato jagat-sthāna-nirodha-sambhavāḥ#/dd##/dl##/dd##/dl# "The entire universal creation is contained in the gigantic form of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
