Furthermore: the Gospel of St John begins with the words-

"In the beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God
and the Word was God."

Now,is there any doubt that the "Word "referred to here was
PraNava from which the universe evolved?I think it is
reasonable to suppose that the greatest mystics of all
world religions saw the same Truth; but nowhere else
has it been so systematically analysed and so clearly
stated as in VEdAnta.
