What is a sanskara? Where did the sanskara comes from? What came before the beginning of the first sankara?

These sansakarame pages source from Ward Parks Tiffin Lecture, the notes, from C.P. Ranasinghe 1957 first edition Lord Buddha’s explanation of the universe, and from Meher Baba’s Lawrence ‘Hermes’ Reiter,s edited version Lord Buddha’s Explanation of the Universe, Meher Message, Meher Gazette, and Divya Vani magazines.

Much of what Meher Baba explained about the process and details of creation can be found in GOD SPEAKS: THE THEME OF CREATION AND ITS PURPOSE, by Meher Baba (1955). The second edition (1973) has much added material. You might want particularly to look at pages 80-88, 98-99 and 165 in the second edition.
The book BEAMS FROM MEHER BABA ON THE SPIRITUAL PANORAMA (1958) has more on the subject. This book contains Baba's answers to questions about GOD SPEAKS. See particularly pages 7-12, 20-43 and 77-88.
Another important source is SHRI MEHER BABA, HIS PHILOSOPHY AND TEACHINGS, COMPILED FROM HIS OWN DICTATIONS, by Ramjoo Abdulla (1933). This book was serialised in the Awakener Magazine, and later reprinted as a special edition of the Awakener, entitled SILENT TEACHINGS OF MEHER BABA by Ramjoo Abdulla (1974?). In this book, see pages 1-3 and 15-23.
A fourth important source is THE NOTHING AND THE EVERYTHING by Bhau Kalchuri (1981), which was written from notes given by Meher Baba. In this book, see pages 5-7, 195, and 210-215 (but there is more about creation scattered throughout the book).
Also see Di (7th ed.) p23-25, and EN p99.
Meher Baba's God Speaks -key word: Latency
In the infinitude of this Beyond-Beyond state of God only the infinity of Infinitude is manifest as the unbounded, absolute, infinite Divine Vacuum; and all other states, attributes and aspects of God, including infinite consciousness and infinite unconsciousness, are all latent as the Nothing in that Infinitude of the unbounded, absolute, infinite Divine Vacuum as the Everything (Everything also includes the Nothing). Thus, the most-original Beyond-Beyond state of God is that state where one can only say: God-Is eternally; and that in this most-original state, God is neither infinitely nor finitely conscious, nor unconscious, of Self or of His own state of Infinitude. In this state, God is also neither conscious nor unconscious of Illusion or Reality.
