The Realisation of the Absolute :2.(b).6.





The Realisation of the Absolute :


Chapter-2.The Nature of the World


(b) .The Critique of Duality - 6.


There is no reasonable evidence for the existence of an eternal plan and purpose underlying the evolutionary scheme of the world-process, except the fact that it serves as the required objective field of training and self-transcendence for individuals whose constitution is in consonance with the constitution of the world in which they find themselves.


Truth being one, it cannot be classed as absolute and relative, except for the sake of human convenience and with reference to subjective changes.

It is a sanction of the inability to apprehend Truth, and is not valid with stricter and saner perception.

If the one is true, the other must be false.

If we cannot experience the Absolute, we have to admit our defeat and ignorance, but we cannot thereby take advantage of our limited consciousness and try to prove that what we experience at present also is real independently.

If Brahman has expressed itself as the world, then, the world cannot exist outside Brahman.

How can it express itself when there is no space for it to express or expand?

Even space is Brahman.

Expression or change becomes impossible.
