The Cosmic Womb.

Creation is born out of the Cosmic womb of the Divine. The imagery of Kabir can be traced back to Tantric symbols which are concerned with the process of birthing. In the Vedas we are told that in the beginning all creatures emerged from a primordial egg, or golden germ. This egg was floating on the waters, and the gods observed it with wonder. They asked what it could be, and this question "what?" or "Ka?" was the name they gave to it. It is the zero, the nothingness, which is the basic unit from which all enumeration (samkhya) became possible.
