Major Chadwick's Day - 17.04.2010 (8)
« on: April 15, 2010, 11:12:53 AM »
Swami Madhavatirtha writes:

The second devotee then asked his question:-

Q:  In the third mantra of the Isvasyopanishad, it says:
"Brahman moves and Brahman moves not." How can these
two contradictory truths both be within Brahman?

Bhagavan:  The truth of not doing anything is the truth of
one's real nature.  Action or doing can only be seen from a
relative point of view.

Then, at the end of a brief discussion between Chadwick and
myself on this subject, Bhagavan intervened and said:  "When
one gives up the thoughts of the one who sees, nothing can
be proved.  Everything that is seen is encompassed in the thought
of the one who sees, who is himself a thought.(soham3, kindly
note).  If anything is seen except Brahman, the reason is the
wrong condition of the one who sees."
