The Realisation of the Absolute :2.(b).11.

The Realisation of the Absolute :

Chapter-2.The Nature of the World

(b) .The Critique of Duality - 11.

It is argued that the artistic poet-souls of the Upanishads lived in the world of diversity and did not fly out of it.

This does not mean that the sages were tied to the plurality-consciousness of the temporal world.

They transcended earthly consciousness and realised that the earth is Brahman itself illumining.

But in such a realisation there is no concession given to the reality of diverse appearances in any case.

The conception that the world is God's revelation of Himself does not fare better.

Revelation again presupposes the operation of the play of space, time and causation, the final validity of which is already repudiated.
