Discussion-6. "Omniscient" .....'manisi' .....
If the 'Self ' be thus the knowing Principle in the individual, then it, being the same 'Life-Principle' in all living beings, is also the one Knowing Principle in all beings.
Thus, the 'Self ' is considered as "Omniscient," "Manisi" ( All-Knowing ).
Every little bit of knowledge that is gained in the world and every one of its transactions are but "Known" by the same "Self ," and hence the "Self, or Atma, or Jivatma, or Life-Principle, or Life-Spark" in us as the one "Consciousness" is "Eternal-Knower" in all living entities.
"Manisi also means 'one who has perfect control over his mind.' "
The Atma is certainly transcendent.
Atma is a state of unexperienceable experience that lies beyond the realm of the 'finite'.
Transcending the finite, lies the domain of that transcendent Self.
