The belief system is basis itself on the belief of an external God but such God can never exist in the realm of truth. One becomes aware of the fact that, the idea of an external God is mere assumption based on imagination.
As one goes in deeper self-search he drops all the ideas, which are not truth. Removed from all of us is growing day by day. There are powerful organized religions at play with vested interests to prevent ordinary mortals from realizing the simple fact that there is no such entity as God who is working full time to monitor our activities.
There is no God who can give us rewards and punishments. Those who are constantly driving this point into the subconscious of the poor and vulnerable are doing a great disservice to their own selves.
Efforts of those few who have realized and are convinced about the non-existence of any God that is external to anyone or anything need to be deepened and firm to overcome the delusion. Those who are in serious pursuit of the ultimate truth have to realize the ultimate truth itself is God. Thus it is necessary to realize ultimate truth rather than worshiping the belief, which is not God.
Deeper self-search exposes all the existing religious theories based on the beliefs about God and the organized religions stand completely exposed. Mythological Gods are meant for the ordinary mortals. But everyone in India have inherited and sentimentally and emotionally involved with their inherited belief system which they regard as sacred. They refuse to think beyond their inherited belief system because they feel it blasphemous.
Only deeper self-search can elevate those who can understand it to an entirely different plane by dropping all the accumulated dross. Ultimate truth is universal and it is for one and all. One has to go deeper in self-search because he has to drop the inborn conditioning to understand, assimilate and realize the ultimate truth.
The truth lies at the core of the mind, which is in the form of universe. Therefore one has to investigate’ What is mind?’ ‘What is the substance of the mind?’ And ‘what is the source of the mind’?, in order to unfold the mystery of our true existence. Our true existence is ultimate truth or God.
If the seeker of truth wants to grasp the non-dualistic truth he has to get rid of inborn samskara or conditioning, which is the cause of the ignorance. It is impossible to demolish the idea of conceptual God without Self-Knowledge.
Nondual wisdom is the only tool. Religious orthodox nonduality with adulteration add-ons cannot be considered successful because of his failure in building it up as a formidable ideological argument.
Everyone feels the Advaitic truth is ultimate truth, yet when it comes to the level of understanding of a common man, the force of argument and understanding weakens because it is spiced with puranic myths.
Bhagavad Gita is full of descriptions and symbols about the ‘Advaitic’ nature of God. But the mycological heroes are considered as God and worshiped, whereas the Advaitic truth is without the form, names and things. Until one drops all the forms names and thing the Advaitic truth is impossible to grasp.
All the characters and even animals and the inanimate ones in mythology stand out with the presence of reality. Presence of reality is absence of ignorance. A complete emancipation of ignorance will only through nondual wisdom. All doubts will vanish only after a complete realization sets in about the nature of God. Names and forms become unimportant in the realm of truth.
Pursuit of truth is all about accepting uncertainty and open questions and seeking for the things that are certainty. Believers and nonbelievers will not accept anything other than their inherited belief system or accepted truth. Atheists feel there is no proof for god’s existence. So atheist chooses to just believe there is no such thing called God. And religionists just believe in the existence of their conceptual god. A Gnani is one who is fully aware of the fact that, the existence or non-existence of God cannot be proven on the base of physical self. Therefore deeper understanding is necessary to understand and assimilate the truth about Gods existence to know what is supposed to be the God.
In Vedas the God has been described as:-
Nirguna (Without form and properties).
All these indicates the nature of Atman ,which is the innermost self. Consciousness is the cause of the universe and it itself is uncaused. The form,time and space[universe] are one in essence and that essence is consciousness. Thus there is no second thing exists other than consciousness. Therefore ,the consciousness is ultimate truth.
The ultimate truth is God. That is Atman is Brahman. That is the true self is Atman ,which is in the form of consciousness. Consciousness is ultimate truth or Brahman .
The Self or Atman is God and God is Self or Atman.
The Self or Atman is God and God is Self or Atman.
In Advaita Vedanta: - Brahman is without attributes and strictly impersonal. It can be best described as infinite Being, infinite Consciousness and infinite Bliss. It is pure knowledge itself, similar to a source of infinite radiance. Since the Advaitins regard Brahman to be the Ultimate Truth, so in comparison to Brahman, every other thing, including the material world, its distinctness, the individuality of the living creatures and even Ishvara (the Supreme Lord) itself are all untrue. Brahman is the effulgent cause of everything that exists and can possibly exist. Since it is beyond human comprehension, it is without any attributes, for assigning attributes to it would be distorting the true nature of Brahman. Advaitins believe in the existence of both Saguna Brahman and Nirguna Brahman; however they consider Nirguna Brahman to be the absolute supreme truth.
Atman is the true self. The true self or Atman is in the form of consciousness is ultimate truth and it is God.
Therefore, self-realization is necessary in order to realize the ultimate truth or god. Self-realization is real God realization. People are ignorant and they are unaware of the reality of their true existence. Man and his experience of universe is simply a mirage created out of the consciousness, Consciousness is the real Self, the real Atman, is the reality.
All the scriptures indicate that Atman is Brahman, and Brahman is ultimate truth. Therefore the soul, which is in the form of consciousness, is ultimate truth. Thus to realize the ultimate truth is the prime goal. A well-directed inquiry, analysis and reasoning will lead one to his nondual destination.
Self-Realization is direct realization of the ultimate truth or real god, in contrast with traditional paths, which are indirect. And the other paths cannot lead to the ultimate destination because they are based on the false self, which they hold as real self and false experience as reality.
Until and unless one overcomes physical shackle it is impossible to understand and assimilate the nondual truth, which is beyond the physical existence or the universe. Consciousness itself is lord of itself though not of the universe. And having nothing it has all.
A Gnani is fully aware of the facts about the worthlessness of names and forms. Religionists always get attracted to the easy ideas and quick-fix solutions like prayers, worships and rituals instead of full application of their innate rationality and reasoning powers to understand what is God in reality.
The entire humanity needs to be aware of the ultimate truth by effectively pulling down the idea of existence of external God; in order to eradicate the violence, wars and terrorism in the name of religion and God
The propaganda of organized religions about a God that makes, monitors, punishes and rewards are mere imagination based on the false self within the false experience because the self is neither the waking entity not self is dream entity but the self, pervades all the three states as their formless substance and witness. The formless substance and witness are one in essence. And that essence is consciousness. Thus consciousness is the ultimate truth because the consciousness is cause of the three states and it itself is uncaused. Only through deeper self-search one will be convinced because it exposes all the falsity of the religious theories.
An ardent orthodox and an atheist both are product of ignorance. Only by getting rid of ignorance the truth will be revealed. There is no difference between the orthodox religionist and an atheist because both are believers. The orthodox religionist believes in belief of god. And an atheist believes in the belief of no God.
Seeker of truth has to know somewhere he is going wrong, and it is for the seeker to go on his own and remove the obstacle. The greatest hindrance is mixing religion, god, scriptures, and yogic theories. Moreover, attachment to scriptures, personal god and religious code of conduct keeps one permanently in the grip of duality.
Seeker has to have courage to accept the truth and reject the untruth because most people will not be able to subscribe to path of truth because they sentimentally and emotionally involved with their inherited belief system and even if one does he has to overcome all his doubts confusion and despair. These are problem for the seekers who are from religious back ground because of their conditioning and they are made to accept their blind belief as truth and their interest or insight is not deep. Thus all my blogs are useful analyze these problems because they highlight the what is not truth according to their own religious scriptures and make them to accept the truth and reject all the false conditioning and move ahead in pursuit of truth.
It becomes difficult for the orthodox cult to accept anything else as truth other than their accepted belief, which they hold as truth. Although all religious followers are participants alike in the spiritual endeavour of the world, overzealous followers of each religion are not prepared to accord equal status to other faiths and assert the superiority of their own. Thus universal brother hood is total impossibility because it is difficult to accept anything other than their inherited belief system.
