There is neither teaching, nor teacher, nor student in the realm of ultimate truth or Brahman****






The real Moksha or freedom is to realize the fact that ‘I’ consciousness is mere physical awareness. Physical awareness is not self-awareness. The self –awareness is when the formless soul or consciousness, the innermost self remains aware of its own awareness.

Dualist sages could not distinguish between ‘I’ and ‘formless witness.’ The 'I' was the witness. Their highest was the Jiva. One is so much attached to the 'I' that he does not want to think that 'I' does not exist. Again one is unable to detach the ‘I’ from the Real witness. ~Santthosh Kumaar

 There is no practice as such,  but perfect understanding is needed to acquire Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atman Gnana. A deeper self search   reveals the fact that, the self is not physical, but the self is formless soul,which is present in the form of the consciousness. Therefore, all the accumulated knowledge, experiences and understanding based on physical self (ego or the waking entity ) are falsehood based on the false self, within the false experience (waking or world).  

Most of the modern Gurus are also stuck with ‘I’ awareness as self-awareness. The ‘I’ awareness is present only when the mind is present. Mind is present only when the universe is present. Universe is present only when the waking or dream is present. The ‘I’ awareness is absent when the mind is absent. Mind is absent then the universe or waking or dream is absent. Thus, the ‘I’ awareness is mere illusion. The self-awareness is ‘I- LESS AWARENESS. ~Santthosh Kumaar

 When he recognizes that the soul or the consciousness is everywhere and in everything in all the three states than that very recognition leads to a total dissolution of the ignorance and leads to nondual self-awareness. 

 The look of an object will depend upon the medium through which the observer views it. In fact, our mental and intellectual conditions determine the three states, observed and experienced.  The commoner viewing the universe will see differently from a Gnani viewing the same universe. Each one interprets the three states that they see in terms of their existing knowledge. The commoner sees everything based on the ego therefore experiences the birth, life, death and the world as reality whereas a Gnani sees everything as consciousness and he is fully aware of the fact that,  there is no second thing exists other than consciousness. And the whole universe is nothing but consciousness. Thus, consciousness is ultimate truth or Brahman. 
 
Thus, all the egocentric (religious) adulteration has to be bifurcated and dropped to realize the ultimate truth or Brahman to know the truth propagated by the ancient sages of the truth. The sages of truth are not religious gurus or saints.   ~Santthosh Kumaar 

The mind is nothing but objective existence.   The seeker has to eliminate such all the objective knowledge through wisdom and then objectless knowledge will alone remain. This is the nature of the soul, the innermost Self.

 As for the well-known example of the hallucination of a snake in a coil of rope, the rope is real and the snake is unreal. There is neither the snake nor the rope in self-awareness.  Even after the truth of the snake is realized and   the hallucination of a snake dismissed, there is still the reality of the rope persists.  Until the rope is recognised to be the self, the Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana is impossibility. The universe is like the snake because it mere an illusion.  Deeper self-search reveals the fact that, the universe is neither the snake nor the rope, but is the soul, which is present in the form of consciousness. The true nature of the soul is objectless awareness.

 Whatever is based on the waking entity (ego or you)  is bound to be falsehood, because  the waking experience itself is falsehood.   Since many teachers and their  teachings are based on the false self (ego or the waking entity) and they consider the false experience (three states) as reality. Therefore,   they are incapable of grasping the existence of the formless  witness, which is within the three states, but it is without the three states.

The formless witness of the three states has to be grasped mentally, to  realize the fact that, all the three states, which comes and goes, are mental.  They are impermanent. The formless witness  of the three states is permanent and eternal.  Therefore, there is a need to understand “What is Mind?” and “What is the substance of the Mind?” and "What is the source of the mind?" in order to understand and assimilate the non-dual truth.

For this one has to  drop all his accumulate knowledge.  People are  using their accumulate knowledge  as a yardstick and land themselves  in pursuit of an argument without reaching anywhere.  One has to think deeper and analyze and verify everything,  and accept only the  uncontradictable truth.  Nothing has to be accepted as truth, because some great thinker says it or it said in some holy book. 

Those who lack the intelligence to discriminate between formless witness (subject) and three states (object) will not be able to grasp what is real and what is unreal. Both the  subject and the object are the  consciousness, not the subject alone.

The truth can never change. The nature of truth is, it can never be changed under any circumstances. It may be misrepresented. It must apply to the whole of existence, to the whole of the universe. deeper analysis points out:~ It is in the object (three states) alone that one has all changes.

 The subject (formless witness) remains unchanged. The subject (formless witness), as such remains immortal. It can never die for it never changes. The body and the world are an object, and goes, but the subject or the witness  of the body and the universe, can never go. The seeker has to take this principle as his guiding thread and non-dualistic or Advaitic  truth, then  becomes easy to grasp. The formless witness can never be subject to the changes of the object; it is unchanged. The mistake usually made is that the subject becomes an object, or that  the object is the  subject.

If one wants to have an absence of contradictions, absence of duality, there must be one entity, one being. If one has experience which is an object (mind), there is a contradiction between subject and object, for "mind” is an object.

The duality is reality on the standpoint of the false self (ego or the waking entity).  The duality is a mere mirage on the base of the soul, the innermost self. the soul is present in the form of the  consciousness. This understanding comes only to the serious seeker, who has an intense  urge to know the ultimate truth. the ultimate truth   is beyond the all the teachings and teachers. There is neither teaching, nor teacher, nor student in the realm of ultimate  truth or Brahman.
