The Realisation of the Absolute :4-4.7. & 5.1.



Chapter 4: The Nature of Reality : 4.7.

4. Space, Time and Causation-7.

The failure of all arguments in determining the exact nature of Reality and its relation to appearance points to the unknowable character of Reality.

Hence it is defined as “not this, not this.” But in the admission of our limited knowledge and our inability to know Reality is implied our claim to know it.

It is known through relative means, but it is realised in immediate experience which is above relative knowledge.


5. Brahman as God or Ishvara-1.


The indeterminable Brahman is only a subject of speculation for the individual which is bound by the limitations of the intellect caught up in the process of space, time and causation, which are the hard undeniable facts of life.

To the man who is confined to the world, the Essential Reality will appear to be outside the ken of knowledge.

His highest is only the highest of his thinking.
