Mundaka Upanisad 1.1.9

यः सर्वज्ञः सर्वविद्यस्य ज्ञानमयं तापः ।
तस्मादेतद्ब्रह्म नाम रूपमन्नं च जायाते ॥ ९ ॥

Mundaka Upanishad 1.1.9

yaḥ sarvajñaḥ sarvavidyasya jñānamayaṃ tāpaḥ |
tasmādetadbrahma nāma rūpamannaṃ ca jāyāte || 9 ||

Mundaka Upanisad 1.1.9

9. From the Brahman who knows all and everything of all and whose tapas is in the nature of knowledge, this Brahma, name, form and food are produced.

9. Dari Brahman yang mengetahui segalanya dan segalanya dan yang tapasnya ada dalam sifat pengetahuan, Brahma, nama, bentuk, dan makanan ini dihasilkan.

Shankara’s Commentary:

Com.—By way of concluding what was already stated the mantra says as follows: ‘Yah,’ above described and named akshara; Sarvajna means he who knows all, who knows all things as a class. Sarvavid, i.e., who knows everything in particular; whose tapas is only a modification of knowledge, consists in omniscience and is not in the nature of modification. From him so described, omniscient, this, i.e., manifested Brahman by name Hiranyagarbha, is produced. Again name, such as ‘This is Devadatta and Yajnadatta, etc.’; and form such as this is white, blue, etc., and food such as corn, yava, etc., are produced in the order stated in the last text; thus there is no inconsistency.
