01/16/2001: Being-Consciousness-Bliss

Initial spiritual instruction is about the undifferentiated nature of the Self, Being-Consciousness-Bliss. Dialogues on the light by which all is known and the unreality of the known, freedom from the idea of being the performer of action, Self-inquiry and spiritual experience, the truth about Brahman and the world, the nature of the individual, the Reality without an alternative, transcendence of the body and mind in Self-Knowledge, and other spiritual topics. Concludes with a recitation in Sanskrit and English of verses from the Ashtavakra Samhita.

****** Quote from Satsang ******



Nome: This is because Existence is not known through the senses and what you are describing is an intuition of it. Appearances seem multiple but Existence itself is not so. The multiplicity of appearances has for its foundation the idea of a distinct Existence separate from that Existence and styled as "I". Now by what light do you know you're supposed mundane perspective? The known may be of different kinds, as long as it is imagined to be such, but the knower is not so. For example, thoughts may seem to have variety, without which they will not be cognized as thoughts, but is the Consciousness which knows all thoughts, but is not known by the thoughts, possibly multiple?
