REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 186
[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.]
Of course, we know that the Dream World, just like the Dream Sensing, is only the Dreaming Mind, & not otherwise. It is the Mind that makes those Senses work. We could say that it is a mode of the Mind that appears as the Senses, & it is a mode of the Mind that appears as the sensed. The same is true of the Waking State. All that you have ever experienced as the Objective World is the Sensing, & the Sensing is only brought about by the Mind. Sensing is a mode of the Mind.
Concentration of the Mind is in a way common to both Knowledge (jnana) & Yoga (asthanga). Yoga aims at union of the individual with the Universal, the Reality. This Reality cannot be new. It must exist even now, & it does exist. Therefore the Path of Knowledge tries to find out how viyoga (separation) came about. The separation is from Reality only.
