In our previous note about Vedanta and Us, we discussed what is Reality or Truth. It can be understood more easily. The understanding becomes more clearer when the truth is in its higher form.
We always have a tendency to forget that Vedanta is not only an intellectual exercise for people who want to attain a higher state of mind, but it is also an energetic experience of oneself. To have this experience or to experience this, one don’t have to be in a particular place, e.g. people set their specific place to do certain practices (I do my practice only here or I can connect myself more only when I am practicing in this area/place).
However, this can be experienced by anybody, anywhere and anytime (this knowledge doesn’t come with the boundaries of race, gender, age, religion or color) and this should be our ultimate goal of life. While telling that we are neither Raj nor Juan etc but we are confirming that we are the reality itself. Studying Vedanta gives us an understanding of the reality (which explained as the Truth), not only about human beings but the Reality about the Sansara (universe). We are part of the Sansara and Sansara is not part of us (the existence of the universe is still there even if we are here or not). This truth we need to know well in order to live a stress free and healthy life.What we see today around us will go away one day e.g. the taste, the smell, what we hear or body even what we perceive and transmit. All will perish one day, all will disappear even the mind and our ego. So bring harmony in oneself, keep smiling always, keep oneself together and with the good thoughts. With this, one can attain a higher state of oneself.
Vedanta teaches us about one thing for sure and that is reality. By studying Vedanta we learn about all phases of life, we learn “who we are”, “what is Sansara”, and “who is the creator”. The whole study of Vedanta is a serious, practical and real discussion about relationship, manifestations and realities.
Love and Peace to all
