REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 144
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sections appended below derive from Sri Ramana’s Teaching.]
The all-pervasive, formless Brahman is the innermost, formless Self. If misidentification with the body, mind, and ego ceases, this becomes self-evident. All forms, all objects of knowledge, all that appear to come into being, are as unreal as what is seen in a dream—the illusion of ignorance. Duality has no real existence. If this is realized, the Knowledge thus realized is objectless and eternal. The “I” is Brahman. The Self, of the nature of Being-Consciousness-Bliss, is always and can never actually be veiled.
There is really no Liberation, so where are the Liberated ? Liberation is synonymous with the Self.
The Self-Realized jnani is not conscious of Liberation or Bondage. Bondage, Liberation, etc. are terms for use by an ajnani in the course shaking off Ignorance. There is only Liberation & nothing else.

“There is no Creation, no Destruction, no Bondage, no longing to be freed from Bondage, no striving for Liberation, nor anyone who has attained Liberation. Know that this to be Ultimate Truth.”
