On the above comment, Sri Krishna asks:
"Is it more appropriate to say, "the unity of
the jIva with the
supreme Spirit is the ultimate fact/reality" ?
Yes, Sri Krishnaji. You are perfectly right. The word 'goal' is used for
popular understanding. Yours is precise. Thank you.
praNAms to all seekers of spirituality.
