Consciousness is ultimate truth. Without consciousness the mind, which is in the form of universe ceases to exist. It is impossible to obtain self- knowledge without knowing the universe that confronts one. only after deeper self-search it is possible to realize, the illusory nature of the mind which appears as universe.
Mind or universe is non-different from the soul, which is in the form consciousness. One should get wisdom to realize the fact that, the self is free from experience of the birth, life, death and world. and they are mere illusion created out of consciousness, which is the innermost self, which is God. Man alone cannot be god, because the whole universe is god because it is created out of consciousness, which is god. Thus self-minus illusion is god. Therefore man and his experience of the world are mere illusion. Whatever exists without the illusion is ultimate truth or Brahman. Ultimate truth is God.
The release from illusion is possible only when seeker indulges in deeper self-search. The illusion appears in the form of the mind. And mind appears in the form of universe. And universe appears in the form of waking or dream. The absolute merging of the mind in consciousness mentally is possible only through wisdom not by any other means.
For seekers of truth, the soul, which is consciousness, is ultimate truth or God. When one becomes aware of the fact that the self is not the form but formless consciousness, then he becomes aware of the fact that , the universe creates veil of ignorance, and the consciousness is devoid of qualities, so it is impossible to get rid of ignorance through path of Karma or Bhakti
Dream is parallel Waking experience and waking is parallel dream. Both are parallel illusory Reality, the one who is in illusion is neither the waking entity nor the dream entity but the formless witness of the three states.
If ultimate truth is perceived then waking or dream would be like any insentient object like a rock”. from the ultimate stand point the subject and object are one in essence.
Since wisdom is already present but is obstructed due to the veil of ignorance. If ignorance vanishes then the veil also will vanish."
One which has the wisdom and which has the ignorance is not the waking entity but the formless witness of the three states.
Only through self-knowledge the veil ignorance vanishes. Consciousness is the ultimate truth and ignorance makes one experience the illusion as reality.
Universe is reality within the waking experience .But the waking is unreal from ultimate standpoint. Three states exist as reality only in ignorance of the true self. From the ultimate standpoint all the three states are mere mirage created out of consciousness.
They are mirage; it means they don’t even exist. Only in ignorance they are experienced as real but when the wisdom dawns they are unreal, because the substance and witness are one in essence. That is the substance and witness both are one [consciousness]. Thus no second thing exist other than consciousness.
