MANTRAM-5. { Description  of  attaining  Brahmam.}

Discussion-4. "Supreme  awareness...."

Naturally,  in  that sense  of  complete  fulfilment  there  cannot  be  any  desire;  and  when  desires  have  subsided,  there  in  that  bosom,  peace  must  necessarily  come  to  reign!!

Supreme  Awareness,  when  it  gets  identified  with  a  particular  body,  mind  and  intellect,  becomes  in  its  new  born  vanity  a  finite  and  suffering  mortal-soul  called  the  Ego.

When  the  ego  renounces  all  its  identifications  with  its  enveloping  wrappers  of  matter,  it  regains  its  native  glory  of  the  all-pervading  Life-Force.


This  is  best  explained  in  the  science  of  Vedantam   by  the  analogy  of  the  eternal  space  ( Akasam  / sky )  and  the  pot-space.

Space  conditioned  by  the  pot  assumes  for  itself  a  separate  ego-sense  and  comes  to  be  known  as  "the  pot-space."


But   the  moment  that  conditioning  is  destroyed,  as  for  example,  when  the  pot  is  broken,  the  'pot-space'  becomes  at  once  one  with  all-pervading  space!

In  fact,  even  inside  the  pot  the  space  was  never limited  but  was  ever  the  all-pervading  space.

Only  it  played  the  game  of  samsara   ...the  pains  of  limitations  ...  even  the  life  of  attachment  and  hatred!

Next :Discussion-5. "Seeker  rediscovers  himself  as  PURE  AWARENESS"...
