The Realisation of the Absolute :2.(b).15.

The Realisation of the Absolute :

 Chapter-2.The Nature of the World

 (b) .The Critique of Duality - 15.

The Upanishads deny the reality of the form of the world of plurality and duality.

According to them, except the non-dual Brahmam, nothing is.

The universe is explained by them as the imagination of the Absolute-Individual.

We can only understand that this absolute-imagination is merely figurative and it can have meaning
only with reference to individuals in the world, and not in itself.

The infinite Bhuma alone hails supreme.

It is established on its own Greatness.

 It is not dependent on anything else, for anything else is not.

There cannot be imagination in the Absolute.

Imagination may differ in degree or intensity, but even these degrees are but imagination.

Even the acceptance of such a difference is ultimately invalid.
