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.
