We are able to see, hear, taste, smell and touch. What is that which makes this body, essentially inert, sentient? What makes our senses, mind and intellect function? Rarely we wonder and ask about this Cosmic Phenomenon that provides us with life and its many and varied gifts. Some rare individuals wonder and for them begins the journey towards the Self.
The Upaniṣads reveal to us that in truth we are beyond life and death, good and bad; that we are the supreme Brahman, the highest Reality. Inclusive of all, excluding nothing, this ultimate Reality of life when realized through the triple means of śravaṇa, manana and nididhyāsana (listening, reflection and meditation) reveals the Self as source of all Bliss and Knowledge within. This Realization when once owned by us, even for a moment (sakṛd api), then there is no turning back to our old ignorant state of living. The entire universe becomes one’s own abode, and comes to be experienced as a glorious expression of the Self. Come revel in the Upaniṣads, bask in its knowledge, discover yourself and become fulfilled. What are you waiting for?
