Advaita Vedanta’s Pillar of Axioms #93
There is immense beauty and poetry abiding in the oth erwise presumed sterility, or the presupposed emptiness, of that great Principle seers and seekers call Nonduality. A step by step figuring of the process of the dissolving of human ignorance under the powerful press of advaitic rea soning is one of those beauties, and is pure poetry, philo sophically speaking. Striving souls seldom see this trans formation happening to them. That marvel is reserved for the teachers, gurus, and acharyas of these adamant seekers. About as clear as this process can be explained is to be seen on this dharmic wisdom chart that outlines fourteen pillars of ultimate progress in the world’s finest living phi losophy. To quote Vivekananda, whose image graces this revealing chart, “On planes physical, ethical, and spiritual, an ever-broadening generalization — leading up to a con cept of Unity Eternal — is in the air; and this being so, all the movements of the time may be taken to represent, knowingly or unknowingly, the noblest philosophy of the unity of man ever had — the Advaita Vedanta.”

Asparsha Yoga — The “Nontouch” Yoga #97
Does Nonduality have a practice? The seers who abide in this singular state tell us that as long as the soul inhabits the body, just so long will it need to exert effort towards maintaining its awareness of Formless Reality. This subtle most practice has been termed Advaita Vedanta Sadhana, which can be defined as the spiritual self-effort performed effortlessly by the luminary for the purpose of keeping the mind’s impurities from rising. Gaudapada’s rendering of Asparsha Yoga has all the characteristics of such a sublime inner practice, which show up as a distilled list of observances and divine expressions in the one adhering to it.

Daivi Vak — India’s Great Spiritual Statements #122
Missing throughout the ages in religion, and abiding undetected in the deeper reaches of the human mind, the truth of “This Self is Brahman,” or “I and my Father are One,” is rendered unable to transmit its transforming and revivify ing effects on the consciousness of embodied beings. Only a few rare souls — those who dive deep into the ocean of conscious awareness to uncover this supreme secret — reap the benefits of Its power, coming forth to declare to all who would open their ears, that the apparently individualized soul is really the Supreme Soul. Certain powerful utterances have emerged over time that bring this incomparable realization of the “Self in All” into the realm of aural expression, albeit with an necessary economy of words. The Mahavakyas accomplish this, along with a host of other pithy declarations that lead the soul to a long-awaited understanding of its own Divine Essence.

From Atomic Particles to Atmic Particles #61
The final conclusion of the luminaries and the revealed scriptures is that “All Is Brahman.” But how can this ultimatum be believed when Brahman cannot be an object, an energy, or a thought? As Sri Ramakrishna explained, Brahman, Divine Reality, infuses everything like sweetness permeates sugar cane juice. The same sunlight appears in multiple dew drops that have collected on garden flowers in the early morning. The Light of Consciousness shines in all individuals, and all things — though apparently separated. Similarly, in keeping with the trends of modern science and contemporary human understanding, a way to understand the all-pervasive nature of Consciousness is through examining particles. Western Science has done so on the physical level, but the ancient contemplatives of India saw past the atomic particle and perceived Consciousness vibrating at subtler and subtler levels. This inner vision also revealed to them the presence of inner realms and the secrets of where the eternal Soul goes to and comes from before birth and after death. Whether put in terms of bodies, worlds, deities, or vibration, in-depth teachings on particles clarify our comprehension.

India’s Sanatana Dharma #11

Not just one religious tradition, but many; not just one holy authoritive scripture, but dozens; not just one savior, but hundreds; not just one illumined soul, but thousands — this is Mother India’s Sanatana Dharma, the Eternal Way to God. … Continued

Inscrutable Epithets of Brahman #56
The different religious traditions of the world agree, more or less, that Ultimate Reality – whether titled Brahman, Almighty Father, Prajna Param, Allah, the Great Spirit, and more – is nonetheless indescribable. For Mother India, this fact did not end up as a taboo, but rather as a challenge, as the ancient rishis of that God-centered land came up with fitting epithets for the Formless Reality that, though conundrums in their own way, nevertheless fulfill the task adequately and satisfy the soul’s thirst for understanding along the way.

Mahamudra — The Great Seal #75
Thee is a definite “seal “over all of Awareness, one that declares an apt conclusion around everything divine, every thing spiritual. It is a incomparable “mudra,” a position assumed by Divinity Itself that confers upon Its highly quali fied votaries the three precious gems of Enlightenment; The View, The Practice, and True Action. All devotees of the Lord and Mother of the Universe, and all adherents to every religious tradition, should acquaint themselves with this precious teaching of the dharma, which is Tibet’s own unique contribution to the philosophy of Nonduality in this age.

Mahavakyas of the World’s Avatars #19
The religious traditions of the world always fall victim to the “My watch keeps the only right time” syndrome, as Sri Ramakrishna has stated. But a close examination of the actual words of the Great Souls who founded these religions always reveals the universal mind shared by these luminaries, as well as their adherence to an Ultimate Reality declared by all — whether called Brahman, Prajna Param, Yaweh, Almighty Father, Allah, or others.

Tathagatagarbha/Atman — The Transparency of the Self #92
In all Indian Darshanas, which are clear pathways to spiritual sight, the presence of The Presence is both key and undeniable. That It exists is Truth; that It is to be attained or reached is the Goal. And how to bring it forward out of hiding is the Way. All this is expressed in unique ways in Vedanta, Yoga, Buddhism, Tantra, and other superlative avenues to Self-Realization. The ardent seeker only has to sincerely set foot on the spiritual path and proceed forward — which is inwards — preferably under the guidance of an illumined preceptor. For, after the body passes, the soul has nowhere else to move other than inwards, into the Great Mind, or Great Self. Those exceptional beings who have become intrepid spiritual wayfarers, even when they were embodied on earth, are the true Guides who shed Light upon the Way. From the small self, to selflessness, to the true individual self, then to The Great Self, the inward-mov ing pilgrim finds Divine Reality — ironically enough — wait ing and abiding in his or her own self.

The 3 States, 7 Limbs, & 14 Mouths of the Individual #114
The most advanced spiritual luminaries declare unani mously that “All is Brahman.” When they state this great Truth they mean it transcendentally, but they also intend that it be taken literally and immanently. This chart explains how the apparently individualized soul, the jivat man, is really the Supreme Soul, Paramatman; jiva is Siva! It may shift its locale in awareness when it visits dream and deep sleep, and it also consumes and exudes the natural world while in the waking state — all with its 19 mouths. Considering the individual, or oneself, in this unique and more enlightened way, the chasm between God and mankind can be breached, and the unity if “I and my Father are one,” or “Tat Tvam Asi,” can be realized. This is the best of informed cosmology and all-pervasive nonduality.

The Four Stages of Absorption & Formlessness #99
If there is only one true religion, that would have to be Nonduality, for only this highest Principle holds the capacity to both contain all other religions, and merge them into one another as well. And the secret of the rare Religion of Nonduality is Formlessness; that is the one distinct element that all the religions of the world do not profess, and if it is present there, it is not emphasized. There are many sweet drinks available for the palate, but only honey embodies the essence of sweetness. There are many great rivers on earth, but they all have the Ocean as their final destination. It was in this way that great souls like Buddha projected a body on earth and spoke to and of this most elevated spiritual station as Truth, giving It just enough form so as to attract the freedom-loving soul to engage with It. Like a mountain that loses all traces of pathways toward its summit, the Religion of Formlessness transcends name and form, time and space, and ushers the enlightened soul towards the peak of perfection called Brahman, Prajnaparam, Allah, the All-mighty Father, and other sublime appelations.
