NATURE OF BRAHMAN (adapted from Amrita Bindu Upanishad)

Vijnana the plenitude of knowledge: Any attempt to contemplate Brahman at the initial stage as altogether un- conditioned will be tantamount to the contem- plation of the Chaotic Tamas — of Avyakta, of Prakriti— which, if pursued to the culminating point, would lead to Prakriti-laya or absorption in the universal nature, thus throwing back the.

He has given refuge to the mighty mountains such ammritabindu Mauiflka when they were afraid of Indra.

When meditation without the help of the sound reaches the culminating point in the form of the intuitive knowledge ‘ I am Brahman,’ then, in the absence of avidya and all its effects, is seen the essence of Brahman free from all limitations.

This objection is anticipated by the sage who says that ” by the unborn the Unborn knows. Even the most qualified soul can share only partial bliss of Brahman and cannot become similar to Brahman. Associated, with such a Divine Lady is He, the Divine spouse, even more perfect in all attri- bute? Not being related as the effects of any cause, as things produced out of something else, the phenomena are non-entities and are therefore undefinable.

We must leave the boat and walk to the other shore. There can be no change in Brahman because there is no second thing which can cause change ; and there can be no liability to change, because Brahman has no parts. There exists no other path to liberation. Inferior Yogins should practise mental restraint.

Yoga, too, is the same. The latter part of the verse is also explained thus: The Upanishad discusses the place of scriptural study and the relevance of meditation with inspiring illustrations and forceful expressions.

The A’charya describes the upanihad man who has attained samadhi in the following words: He then enjoys his own inherent bliss; but, being then overpowered by Tam is, he rather his manas, is not conscious of the fact. Amritabindu Upanishad Amritabindu mentions Padmasana above and other asanas. Intelligence is different from the intellect.

Moreover, he should restrain manas from getting into laya or mental inactivity — which is equivalent to the sushupti state, — though it be a state which is marked by the absence of all trouble. Brahman is not designated! His main object was, — as may be seen from his attitude towards the amritsbindu religious systems of his day which were too full of mischievous doc- trines and corrupt practices under the cloak of devotion to a personal God or Goddess, — to purify them all by placing them on a rational basis.

Sadhana chatushtaya is the fourfold discipline of self-control. It is impure with the resolve of personal desire. Who amrihabindu how many lives we need?

And in this widest acceptation of the term, amrotabindu title has been extended by later writers to such works as the Bhagavadgita, which treat of Brahman and upanshad means of attaining Divine Bliss. In jagrat, svapna and. Om Saanth Saantih Saantih. Atmau is of a different natui’e from the whole universe, as the s’ruti says: He has from time immemorial proclaimed the possibility of knowing the Thing in itself, and he has had distinguished representatives in the historical period, such as S’ri-Gauda- padacharya and his pupil’s pupil S’ri-S’ankara- charya, not to mention a host of others in the later periods of history.

Tlie result of such a nirodha or restraint of Mianas is stated as follows: It becomes impure driven by the senses; but when the senses are under control, the mind becomes pure.

Really the movement belongs to the clouds and not to the moon. Vairagya is the process of rational rejection; Samapat is the acquisition of six spiritual wealths-Sama, Dama, Uprati, Titiksha, Sraddha and Samaadhaana.

Amoug the many distinguishing features of the minor Upanishads two may be men- tioned here: Eka evaa-aatma mantavyoe jagrat-svapna-sushuptishu.
