REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 172
[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.]
That which is ever existent is alone regarded as Real. The very ideal of “all else” vanishes due to Self-Inquiry to know Reality, the Self. The Self alone is Real, always. There are no parts to Reality. Reality is indivisible or Non-Dual. The World is only That (Reality), the Self is only That, & the Absolute is of course always That. There are not 3, but only That which never becomes other than its own nature. This known as the Unborn & as the Truth of No-Creation (ajata vata).
If you make your outlook that of wisdom, you will find the World to be God. Without knowing the Supreme Spirit (Brahman), how will you find His all-pervasiveness ?
Whatever state one is in, the perceptions partake of that State (Waking, Dream, & Deep Dreamless Sleep). The explanation is that in the Waking State (jagrat) the gross Body perceives gross names & forms.
In the Dream State (swapna) the mental body perceives the mental creations in their manifold forms & names.
In Deep Dreamless Sleep (sushupti), the identification with the Body being lost, there are no Perceptions
Similarly in the Transcendental State (turiya), identity with Brahman places the man in harmony with everything, & there is nothing apart from his Self.
