 CHAPTER-2.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-1.{  Pointers  to  the  nature  of  Brahmam  and  advice  how  to  know  it. }

 Discussion-5. "Great  and  the  support  of  all"....

Great  and  the  Support  of  all : -

The  Eternal,  we  have  already  found,  must  be  formless  and  the  formless  must  be  all-pervading.

Elsewhere,  in  the  'Sruti,'  we  have  the  statement,  that  Truth  'pervades  all,  and  nothing  pervades  it'.

Naturally,  the  extent  and  dimentions  of  Truth  must  be  greater  than  the  greatest,  since  it  is  "Infinite."

It  is  the  support  of  all,  in  the  sense  that,  if  Consciousness  is  removed  nothing  exists;  if  existence  is  removed  from  the  table,  the  table  should  become  npn-existence.

The  Self  being  the  very  source  of  all,  it  becomes  the  cause  for  everything  perceived  or  felt.

The  "cause  is  the  support  of  all  the  effects" ---

Clay  is  support  of  clay-pots;

Gold  is  the  support  of  all  gold  ornaments;

Ocean  is  the  support  of  all  waves,  ripples,  foam,  and  bubbles  in  the  Ocean.

In  this  sense  the  "ATMA  or  the  SELF" is  here  descibed  as  support  of  all.

Next : Discussion- 6. "Moves,  breathes  and  winks"......
