Brahma Sutras – According to Shankara 2-3-5

Topic 5 - Water Created From Fire

Sutra 2,3.11

आपः ॥ ११ ॥

āpaḥ || 11 ||

tejaḥ—Fire; ataḥ—from this; tathā—so hi—verily; āha—says.

11. Water (is produced from fire).

From fire is produced water” (Taitt. 2. 1); “That created water” (Chh. 6. 2. 3). These two texts leave no doubt that water is created from fire.

Here also we must understand that from Brahman, conditioned as fire, water is produced.
