Thefollowing Sruti mantras declare ;
SatyaM jnAnaM anantam brahma || TaittarIya 2-1
sarvagM hyEtadbrahma ayamAtmA brahma ||
brahmaivEdagM viSvaM variShTham || muMDaka
ahamEvEdagam sarvam || Chandogya 7-25-1
AtmaivEdagaM sarvam || Chandogya 7-25-2
Atmata EvEdagM sarvam || Chandogya 7-26-1
prapaMcOpaSamam Sivam advaitam caturtham manyantE
sa AtmA sa VijnEyaH || Mandukya mantra 7
>From the above quoted mantras it follows that
Aham which is myself and which is HERE and NOW
is Atman, Brahman. And also I am anantam and advaitam.
But my present understanding about myself is that
I am a limited being who has a beginning and end.
What Sruti is pointing out and my presentunderstanding
are diametrically opposite.
Which is the correct understanding?
Answer for the above question based on sArvatrikapUrNAnuBava and which may be verified within oneself by oneself may please be provided by the membersif they wish to respond.
With respectful namaskars,Sreenivasa Murthy
