ULLadu Narpadu - 98
« on: May 17, 2010, 10:59:41 AM »

T.R. Kanakammal says for the Verse 18:-

This verse highlights the magnitude and depth of differences, in
the awareness of the ignorant and the Sage, though both regard
the world as real. 

The Jnani who has experienced the substratum Brahman will not
perceive the superimposed world.  The Ajnani who perceives the
world superimposed on Brahman by mental projection, will not
perceive Brahman - the Substratum.  That when one is perceived,
the other will not perceived is the reason.  "That which is" the
Truth, is screened off by the world of names and forms, and names
and forms become he truth for him.

To the Jnani who is ever aware, the world is real because, he
perceives, "That which is" the Sat (Truth), the substratum of the
world of multiplicity with its manifold names and forms.  It is like
we seeing the tree and the Jnani seeing the tree as well as its
root beneath the earth!

An Ajnani, who has not realized the Self, perceives the world, for
Atman is veiled.  He may concede the unreality of anything
but not that of himself  or the world he perceives.  The world
perceived is the sole reality for him.

The knowledge of the ignorant is limited to the visible.  A
Jnani sees both the visible and the invisible.  That is called
Jnana Drishti.  Bhagavan Ramana says in Who am I?  The Jnana
Drishti, the Wisdom insight is only keeping the mind in Atma
Swarupam.  For him the truth of the world is truth of the Self.

Arunachala Siva.
