The Realisation of the Absolute :4-1-3.


Kedarnath Temple

Chapter 4: The Nature of Reality : 1

1. BRAHMAN AS EXISTENCE OR BEING : 3.

Existence is secondless and has no external relations or internal differentiations.

It is unlimited by space, time and individuality.

It is related to nothing, for there is nothing second to it.

It has nothing similar to it, nothing dissimilar, for That alone is.

The whole universe is a spiritual unity and is one with the essential Brahman.

It has no difference within or without.

Brahman is alike throughout its structure, and hence the knowledge of the essence of any part of it is the knowledge of the Whole.

The knowledge of the Self is the knowledge of Brahman.

Everything that is, is the one Brahman, the Real of real, satyasya satyam.

By knowing it, everything becomes known.
