A letter is a combination of sound and silence. Same are all the names and forms we see. Parvathy wants to know if the eternal truth is in the form of letters, sounds and shapes. She asks if they are in the various major energy centres of the body, beginning from the tip of the spine to the top of the head, called by seven names as Muladhara, Swadhishtana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddhi, Agnya and Sahasrara.
Or is it through the form of pure energy that one realises your real form? Energy is a beautiful word to express that which cannot be seen, but simply experienced. We say a bubbly child is in a high state of energy. The energy of a big wave cannot be seen directly, but understood by observing the height, depth, volume and force with which it crashes on a rock. When you put on the switch, the light burns bright. You may be able to see the connecting wires, but not the electricity that causes the light to shine.
Devi asks if the truth can be realised by focussing on the sound and silence of the mantra, or by the sound that always exists in the heart beat or by focussing on the different energy centres of the body. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
