Many Gurus describes to perfection is the awakening to Reality ~the realization that pure Consciousness alone is, that the perpetually fluctuating and evanescent contents of the mind derive from it. This awakening effectively happens in an instant. But in order for the lightning flash to take place, resulting in a firm and unshakable certitude, a long labour is necessary, which they seem to underestimate. “Truth is a formless is their answer.
Many Gurus teaching seems essentially negative, a potent but bitter medicine for those imprisoned by institutional cults. They break the disciples bonds but then lead him to a vast desert where he abandons him.
The ultimate state of consciousness they e describes is that of the traditional sage or fully enlightened being, but they do not show us the process leading to the realization of this state. They describe marvellously the goal but does not indicate the steps to be taken: their recurring phrases "unified consciousness" and "let go" and "'love alone" are not a road-map.
Most of the Gurus and Yogis s approach was more practical, and they stuck with the reality of the 'I', they take it as real. All their teachings of Advaita, is based on the dualistic perspective. Such teaching will not yield the truth of the whole
All the Gurus of the east and the west are based on dualistic perspective. The dualistic knowledge is egocentric knowledge. All egocentric Advaita or nonduality is based on the imagination. All imagined Advaita is will not help to cross the domain of the form, time, and space.
The egocentric knowledge keeps the Soul in the intoxication of the ‘I’. The ‘I’ hides the whole truth. The Gurus and the teachers of nonduality of the east and west are stuck up with their own accepted truth gathered from here and there and Their egoic attitude blocks then by realizing the Advaita hidden by the dvaita, which is present in the form of the ‘I’.
Mundaka Upanishads: ~ So-called spiritual pundits and learned are called children because a child takes whatever it thinks as truth. The question never occurs to children “Is what I have seen or thought really the truth?" (P.334 line 9)
Scriptures are not needed in pursuit truth. Even the Upanishads and the sages of truth declare the same.
The ultimate truth has to be ascertained without the scriptures by realizing the Self is neither the waking entity not the dream entity but the Self is formless Soul which is present in the form of consciousness. In the realm of the truth, the form, time, and space are created out of single stuff. That single stuff is consciousness. Realizing the single stuff as ultimate truth is Self-realization or truth realization. To realize this truth, there is no need of the scriptures.
The ultimate truth has to be realized first then only it is possible to know what the scriptures are saying.
That is why Sage Sri, Sankara declare: ~ VC 56. Neither by Yoga, nor by Sankhya, nor by good work, nor by learning, but by the realization of one's identity with Brahman is Liberation possible, and by no other means.
59. The study of the Scriptures is useless so long as the highest Truth is unknown, and it is equally useless when the highest Truth has already been known.
60. The Scriptures consisting of many words are a dense forest which merely causes the mind to ramble. Hence, men of wisdom should earnestly set about knowing the true nature of the Self.
The real Advaitic wisdom of Sage Sri, Sankara is the soulcentric knowledge. The Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana is soulcentric knowledge destroys the ignorance.
Advaita is universal. Advaita is not for Sale. Do not buy Advaita from the spiritual supermarket. Advaita is the nature of the Soul, the innermost Self. The world in which you exist is created out of single stuff. That single stuff is consciousness. Knowledge of the single stuff is Advaitic wisdom.
Advaitic truth is very simple, but it is very difficult to realize because you have accumulated mental garbage from different sources in the name of Advaita. Until you discard all the accumulated knowledge you will never be able to realize the Advaitic truth, which is beyond the form, time, and space.
The Advaita is the nature of the Soul, the innermost Self shines in its own its awareness when wisdom dawns.
The Advaita is the Soul is the cause and the support of all that exists as the world in which we exist. Advaita is the nature of the God, the innermost Self.
The Advaita is present in the form of the consciousness. Advaita is the root element of the universe. From the Advaita, the universe comes into existence. In the Advaita the universe resides. And into the Advaita the universe is dissolved. The Advaita is the parent of all that is there is.
