The mantra-yoga consisting of repeating the name of God, or even the AUM; thousands of times yield nothing*****



The Brihadaranyaka Upanishadd~eclares: "He who worships the deities as entities entirely separate from him does not know the truth. For the Gods, he is like a pasu (beast)". (1. 4. 10)

Religion can never make you know God. Only an intense urge to know what God supposed to be in truth can make you realize God.  The Soul, the ‘Self is the Infinite God. 


The Soul, the ‘Self is the Infinite God. 
The Soul is the innermost Self. The God is the Soul, which is present in the form of the consciousness. The God is the fullness of the consciousness without the illusory division of form, time and space.  Therefore, there is nothing apart from it. 
The God is Self-evident. God is not established by extraneous proofs. It is not possible to deny the God because God is the very essence of the one who denies it. The God is the basis of all kinds of knowledge, presuppositions, and proofs. God is within the universe in which you exist, the God is without the universe in which you exist.

The Vedas confirms God is Atman (spirit), the innermost Self.

In Yajurveda – chapter- 32:~ It has been said that God Supreme or Supreme Spirit has no ‘Pratima’ (idol) or material shape. God cannot be seen directly by anyone. God pervades all beings and all directions. Thus, Idolatry does not find any support from the Vedas.
Brihadaranyaka Upanishad: ~ Brahman (God) is the form of the Athma, and it is indeed Athma itself.
People, who worship the belief of God, are hallucinating that they become one with such God.
It is impossible to know that God is everywhere. What is God?  God of belief cannot exist without duality. In nondual reality, there is no man, no world, and no belief in God.

God with forms and names has no meaning in the realm of truth. It is a mere imagination or assumption.  It is high time to realize all the belief based Gods are not God in truth according to your own scriptures.

People who stuck to their religious belief and think scriptural authorities as the ultimate truth will not be able to assimilate Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana.   Soul, which is the true Self, is nothing to do with religion and its code of conducts. Observing and following the religious code of conducts are accepting the false Self as true Self. 

Accepting so-called spiritual laws is accepting the illusion as reality. The laws are a reality within the duality.  The one who thinks of existence spiritual laws is accepted himself as a person perceiving the world that is accepting himself as the doer. When the man is not the doer, how the actions done on the base of false identity can yield fruits.

How can you worship the Absolute? That implies two ~ the worshipper and the worshipped, whereas the Absolute is nondual. One can worship his idea of the Absolute only or realize his unity with it when he can’t worship it as apart.

The Upanishads say in effect that: ~ If you believe that the ‘the Soul, the innermost Self’ is one and God (Brahman) is another you cannot understand Truth.

Sage Sri, Sankara: ~"That which permeates all, which nothing transcends and which, like the universal space around us, fills everything completely from within and without, that Supreme non-dual Brahman  (God)."

Thus, truth realization is Self-realization. The Self-realization is God realization.  God -realization is real worship.  

Some Gurus recommended repeating the God’s name as a spiritual practice but what is the use of such practice without knowing ‘what God is in actuality.  Such practices based on the religious God. Religious Gods are not God in truth.

The God does not have a name because the God is not an individual,  but God is the  Spirit. The Spirit is the root element of the universe. The Spirit is present in the form of the Soul, the innermost Self. The Soul is present in the form of the consciousness. 

From the Spirit, the universe comes into existence. In the Spirit, the universe resides. And into the Spirit, the universe is dissolved. The Spirit is the parent of all that is there is. 

Belief in religion and religious God makes the Soul permanently remain in ignorance.  Ignorance makes the Soul experience the duality as reality. Belief implies duality. The duality is not reality.  Thus the path of bhakti, the path of karma and path of yoga are based on dualistic perspective, therefore, they are the path of ignorance. Therefore, the seekers who are searching for ultimate truth or Brahman have to discard all the egocentric paths in order to acquire Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana.  


The Bible says: ~ “God is a Spirit, and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24)”, 

In Yajurveda – chapter- 32:~   It has been said that God Supreme or Supreme Spirit.

Vedas and Upanishad confirm the Soul, the innermost Self, is the present in the form of the Spirit or the consciousness.

Rig Veda~ The Atman (Soul or Spirit) is the cause; Atman is the support of all that exists in this universe. May ye never turn away from the Atman the innermost self. May ye never accept another God in place of the Atman nor worship other than the Atman?" (10:48, 5)

Even Bhagavad Gita says: ~ Brahmano hi pratisthaham Brahman (God) is considered the all-pervading consciousness which is the basis of all the animate and inanimate entities and material (Gita 14.27)

When Bhagavad Gita says, God is considered the all-pervading consciousness which is the basis of all the animate and inanimate entities and material then nothing has to be accepted as God other than consciousness. 

Lord Krishna Says Ch ~V: ~ “Those who know me in truth.". The last two words (tattvataha) are usually ignored by pundits, but they make all the difference between the ordinary concept of God and the truth about God.

The dualistic worship of "God” is only for the ignorant populace. The God in truth is only Atman, the innermost Self.   In reality,  there is no duality, no differentiation. Only Atman exists.

If God is formless Spirit, then how does the man know God created the world? There is no proof. If the man had seen God creating the world, he could admit it, but how could he have seen God before he came into existence? (i.e. were created).

The Spirit is the root element of the universe. The Spirit is present in the form of the Soul, the innermost Self. The Soul is present in the form of consciousness. From the Spirit, the universe comes into existence. In the Spirit, the universe resides. And into the Spirit, the universe is dissolved. The Spirit is the parent of all that is there is. 

The religion preaches that God is one and the ways to God are many. It simply tries to lead them to darkness with its dogma and idea of many Gods, which is apart from the Self. 

People all over the world in the past and present accepted the idea of the existence of God.  The fear of the God injected by the religion was the root cause of worship, superstitions,  and dogmas.  The religious belief is passed on to the populace from one generation to the next generation

GOD, we do not see is real. God is hidden by the world in which we exist because the world in which we exist is created out of God.  On the standpoint of the God, the world, in which we exist, is false.

In reality, the world in which we exist does not really exist and what does not exist for us, really exists.

By worshipping God in human form, repeating mantras is like watering a barren soil.  The seeker of truth should not waste life in empty formalities. Without realizing the world in which he exists,  is an illusion it is impossible to acquire Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana.

The mantra-yoga consisting of repeating the name of God, or even the AUM; thousands of times yield nothing. It can appeal only to the ignorant, to those whose cannot think deeper. It is a mere religious fable. The real exercise is to think of the meaning of the name or the AUM and then only do you get something.

Mantras can do nothing. If they really had any power why did not Krishna use one to stop the Mahabharata war? All the magical power of mantras are a religious fable because religion is based on the false Self(waking or ego) and false experience(waking or the world)  Visions and Samadhi are illusions from the standpoint of the Soul, the innermost Self.

That is why Sage Sri, Sankara: ~ VC- 63. Without causing the objective universe to vanish and without knowing the truth of the ‘Self’ how is one to achieve Liberation by the mere utterance of the word Brahman(God)? — It would result merely in an effort of speech.
People of small intelligence follow religion and believe that the world was created by God. But how do they know that He did so? When a pot is created, one can see both pot and its maker, but not in the case of the world.


The people believe in the belief of God. They are unaware of the fact that what God supposed to be in actuality.  They merely fear God mighty Being, who rewards the good and worthy and punishes the wicked.

Sin and karma injected by the religious founders the fear punishment of hell created by God that they fear.
The belief in religious God is not God in truth. Holding religious belief as God is holding illusion as a reality because the belief is possible only within the realm of duality. Duality is merely an illusion from the ultimate standpoint.  Without the belief of God, the belief system holds no water. 

Belief is not God. Belief needs the believer.  The believer needs to be born in this world. If the believer is born than he is part of the illusion.   Without the believer, there is no belief.  The believer and his world and his belief in religious GOD are part of the illusion because the Self is birth-less because the Self is formless. The one, which is born, lives and dies, is not the Self.    The innermost Self is formless substance and witness of the falsehood (universe or waking or illusion), which is Soul or consciousness, consciousness is ultimate truth or Brahman.  
By believing and worshiping what is not truth (God), one is in the prison of the dualistic illusion.  Truth realization or Self-realization is God realization. Self-realization is real worship
