In the beginning.. Rig Veda (10.21.1)

In the beginning there was neither nought nor aught.
Then there was neither sky nor atmosphere above,
What then enshrouded all this universe ?
In the receptacle of what was it contained ?
Then was there neither death nor immortality,
Then was neither day nor night, nor light, nor darkness,
Only the Existent one breathed calmly self contained.
-Rig (10.21.1)
