WHO AM ‘I’ AND ‘I AM THAT’ is only for a lower stage where one gives up externally in order expose the false nature of the ego, which is not the full truth. To get ultimate truth one has to inquire into the nature of the mind, which is in the form of the universe. Inquiring into the nature the mind or the universe is higher. Thus ‘WHO AM ‘I’? or ‘I AM THAT’ is not complete and the journey is incomplete.
First one has to mentally detach the three states from the formless witness, as unaffected by coming and going of the three states. And then – the formless witness and the three states are one in essence. That essence is consciousness. Thus everything is consciousness and nothing exist other than consciousness.
People stop their pursuit of truth at the ‘WHO AM ‘I’? or ‘I AM THAT’ , which is incomplete and keeps them in the grip of individuality and individuality leads them to intellectuality.
Seeker will complete his pursuit of the truth only when realize the truth of the whole that is inquiring in to the nature of the mind or the universe.
Others Blessings are not the means for realizing the truth; blessings are religious fable nothing to with the ultimate truth. A Gnani neither blesses nor curses.
That the ancient sages had miraculous occult power and books relate stories of their feats, are fairy tales were meant for children, women and those whose minds had not developed. Mythological contains stories of people with 10 with seven heads etc., which are fables, yet are taken seriously by pundits. All these stories are reality within the waking experience and waking experience itself falsehood from ultimate standpoint.
The yogi in Samadhi fails to see non-duality? Because he believes there is happiness to come to him from Samadhi. That shows he does not know the truth, but still seeks bliss as something apart from his-self.
The common people draw a wrong inference in thinking a Gnani must ascetically reject the world; this is only for those religious or yogic minds in the lower rungs of the ladder.
Yoga is to be practiced only until one attains equilibrium of mind; when this is established, the continuance of yoga is foolish. The indifference practiced by a seeker is external to the self, is formless; the indifference practiced by a Gnani is purely internal, is mental.
The greatest mistake is to think that a Gnani sees nothing. This blind reverence for Samadhi is as valuable as revering a man who has taken a dose of chloroform.
The Gnani sees the essential universal unity and the multiplicity of objects simultaneously. The person in deep sleep or Samadhi leaves out the objects and sees the essence; hence he has not full Gnana.
One must be soul centric to give all knowledge based on egocentric, which is cause of the ignorance.
One knows of dream that the dream-figures are also created out of consciousness, not different from it; similarly when he knows that everything that exists in waking experience is consciousness and consciousness is ultimate truth or Brahman, there is no need for yogic control of the mind; control presupposes a second thing, duality. Hence yoga is in sphere of duality and is unnecessary to one who knows non-duality.
It is erroneous to believe the general impression is that the universe disappears to a Gnani, that he sees nothing in Samadhi. Only by deluded persons will have such impression? Nothing is destroyed. Only ignorance disappears and the unreal nature of the universe is exposed. A Gnani is fully aware of the fact with firm conviction that everything is consciousness in the midst of duality. Being aware of the reality in the midst of duality is called wisdom.
The universe or waking experience will not disappear. It is there always but its unreal nature is exposed in the midst of duality or waking experience through wisdom?
If one thinks its mere disappearance in yogic Samadhi is ultimate truth or Brahman then he would get it in deep sleep. Thus yogic Samadhi is not wisdom.
