The Realisation of the Absolute : 4.5.11.



Chapter 4: The Nature of Reality : 5.11.
5. Brahman as God or Ishvara-11.

A declaration is made in this, which strikes terror into the man of the world; the individual and the cosmos, the soul and God are one!

“That thou art, O Svetaketu!”

This may not be easy to accept, but only this can be the truth. This alone removes all contradictions in life, this truth alone stands unsublated.

“The Purusha is what is and what is not.”

“He who dwells in all beings, and is other than all beings, whom all beings do not know, whose body are all beings, who controls all beings from within—This is thy Self, the Inner Ruler, the Immortal” (Brih. Up., III. 7. 15).

“In the space within the heart lies the Ruler of all, the Lord of all, the King Of all... He is the Overlord of all beings, the King of all beings, the Protector of all beings” (Brih. Up., IV. 4. 22).

“Etad vai tat—This, verily, is That.”
