also goes on to explain this in the
I am posting the relevant part here:
Since we are within the context of ShAkta upaniShads, let me make use
of the same. In the SarasvatI-rahasya-upaniShad, it is stated that
five factors are observed here in the illusory world. These are
1) asti, interpreted by UpaniShad Brahma Yogin as Existence, Sat,
2) bhAti, interpreted as Consciousness, Chit,
3) priyaM, interpreted as Bliss, Ananda,
4) nAma, name, and
5) rUpa, form
Of these five factors, the upaniShad states, the first three, ie.
Sat-Chit-Ananda pertain to Brahman. The last two, nAma-rUpa, pertain
to the world.
Om Namo Narayanaya,
