The Realisation of the Absolute :4-1-10.

HARIDWAR


Chapter 4: The Nature of Reality : 1

1. BRAHMAN AS EXISTENCE OR BEING : 10.


These references depict the absolutely transcendent nature of Reality.

“It is not obtainable by many even to hear of, and even when heard of, it remains unknown to many.

Wonderful is the declarer of it! Blessed is the obtainer of it!”

The awe-inspiring Absolute is described as

“soundless, touchless, formless, imperishable, tasteless, constant, odourless, beginningless, endless, higher than the high, eternal, by knowing which one is liberated from the mouth of death.”

It exists in such a homogeneous and differenceless condition that

“whatever is here, is there also; whatever is there, is here,”

and hence the spatial nature of existence with its concomitant differentiations of time and individuality is overcome in the indivisible constitutive essence of Brahman.

It, therefore, is and is-not.
