And they Ignorant people consider Him inexistent; in- tell the light of Nature that oh jyotisvarupa28, existency does not reach Him, and He is ever- that is oh you the nature who are in the form existent. Thank you very All of the angles told Parjapat "Atma who much Namaskar. And whatever higher than these three times is Aum. And all of these are Brahm, and Jivatma is also Brahm.
Aum, which is Brahm, becomes unified with Jivatma, and then that becomes unified with Brahm, which is Aum, and this one has no oldness and is immortal and eternal. As there is a saying in Rigveda which stipulates that various dei- ties are manifestations of a single truth; Tat Tvam Asi Thou art thou , the natural identity, the firm base and foundation of all metaphysical issues of Upanishads.
Despite diversity of goals and differ- ences in the resource, in all Upanishads there is a tendency toward originality of unity monism. All various forms of Indian monism since the Vedic period to the present believe in various mani- festations of God and their unity in the single unique God. Therefore, Indian monism has a unique feature which differentiates it from that of Christianity or Islam. Philosophy of Upanishad answers all of the questions that intellectuals and scholars used to have in mind in ancient periods.
These questions include: What is the truth? What does the universe symbolize? Does the existence have any truth by itself, or is it just a mental manifestation or fantasy? Are human's behaviors and deeds based on truth or fantasy? What is the meaning of human's life? Generally speaking, Upanishads are persistent in one main premise: all things either material or spiritual including human, animal and plant, spatial things, intangible spirits and gods, are all float- ing in the sea of the truth of unity.
That world is beyond tangibility; it is end of the material and the natural world; it is unlimited and self-existent; it is God and God only. Endnotes 1.
Max Muller be- lieves that this school has elevated human thought to its pinnacle. Vedanta: End of Veda. Vedanta, in fact, is the only representative of Wahdat al-wujud religion in India at the present time.
The founder of this school of thought is Vyasa, also called Badarayana. The great teacher of this philosophy was Shankar Acharya from Malabar Naeeni, Veda: These books are the first source of Hindi philosophy. The word Veda in Sanskrit comes from the root of knowing and its expression meaning is the divine knowledge or wisdom. The latter refers to the knowledge which has been transferred from generation to generation, and in fact it is the legacy of an- cient teachers and leaders.
For most of the Hindus, Vedas are divine revelations, eternal books, and the most sacred religious texts with comprehensive and understandable teachings. They are the reference for all individual and social regulations. All judicial and social rules must be based on Vedas. Religious ceremonies and rituals, prayers and sacrifices must follow Vedic instructions.
And finally, they are the base of all schools of philosophical and ideological principles. Vedas consists of four books each containing lots of philosophic texts and theses or interpretations, which are divided into four groups: 1. Samhita, 2. Brahmana, 3. Aranyaka, 4. The four Vedic books are: 27 jocO quarterly, Vol.
Autumn a. Rig-Veda: It is composed of poetic pieces of worship. These pieces are songs for praising and wor- shiping gods.
In fact, Rigveda is the poetic Veda. Sama-Veda: It is mostly the repetition of the same poems of Rigveda, but consists of 75 more principal pieces which are specific for sacrificial ceremonies. Sama-Veda is the Veda of rhythms. Yajur-Veda: composed of poems and prose for various sacrificial ceremonies. It is the Veda of sacrifice. Atharva-Veda: It is historically older than the other three books, and aims at satisfaction of demons and vi- cious ghosts.
Aranyaka: related to jungle, dwelling in jungle. It is the name of some of the religious and philosophic texts that expressed the meaning of religious ceremonies, and discuss the nature and characteristics of God.
These writings are attachments to Brahmana, and refer to the fact that Brahmas retired to jungles. Some of Aranya- kas were gradually destroyed, but there are still four Aranyakas: - Brihad Aranyaka - Taittiriya Aranyaka - Aitareya Aranyaka - Kaushitaki Aranyaka Aranyakas are closely related to Upanishads, and sometimes the names Upanishad and Aranyaka are used interchangeably.
Aranyaka texts were compiled for those classes of people who have devoted themselves to thinking and reflecting about philosophic and spiritual aspects. Historically, Aranyakas are the dawn of think- ing Naeeni, , V. Caviya Satiya Sarvata Upanishads: Referring to the poems memorized through hearing. Muktika-Upanishads: One of the names of Upanishads which consists of Upanishads itself.
The date of compilation or writing of Muktika Upanishad is not exactly known Ibid: Karam: Also referred to as Karman, means performance, behavior, deeds. Moksha: Freedom, release. According to the beliefs of some people, life and death do not equal existence and mortality, but changing clothes or frame. Brahman or Brahma: God of creation, the first of the three Hindu gods, and the elevated spirit who has ap- peared in the form of the creator of the Universe.
He was created by the seed of universe which was the reason for all reasons. He is the same Parjapat, who is the father and creator of all creatures, especially the father other parjapats. Governed by whom, O you who know Brahman, do we live in pleasure and in pain, each in our respective situation?
One can only find out its true purpose when one becomes the Brahman as the 'Brahman' is all the knowledge one can know itself. Hence, complete answers for anything in life can only be determined or obtained when the Brahman is realized as the Brahman is all the complete knowledge itself.
This is said in the Aitareya Upanishad 3. Knowledge is the eye of all that, and on knowledge it is founded. Knowledge is the eye of the world, and knowledge, the foundation. Brahman is knowing.
This is because the person has the ability and knowledge to discriminate between the unchanging Atman and Brahman and the ever-changing Prakrit and so the person is not attached to the transient. Hence, the person is only content with the self and not his body or anything other than the self. In Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 3. Therefore, the apparent purpose of Brahman is in discussion in the Upanishads but the Brahman itself is the only self-contained purpose and true goal according to the Upanishads , so posing the question is redundant.
Even if one were able to overcome the philosophical objections listed above, one would still have to face the even more difficult task of demonstrating the false status of the Physicalist-Materialist metaphysics underlying modern Science which purports to being an universal system, capable of explaining all phenomena in the universe whilst denying the existence of mystical and paranormal phenomena which do not fit into its metaphysical picture.
All the above Western objections to Mysticism and Perennial Philosophy and many more false Western presuppositions including Physicalism have been undermined and dismissed on rigorous, scientifically- and epistemologically-valid grounds by an Indian-born philosopher not an academic — but one who has received remarkable, unique plaudits from Western science professors who actually understand Mysticism. My work marks the transition of Vedantic-Tantric metaphysics from being merely Philosophy to becoming the basis of the New Universal Science based on the Primacy of Consciousness.
The word Rita, which most Westerners have mistranslated as 'order', actually refers to the Truth that shines forth. Though vastly different in content from the ancient Vedas, BBAB represents the supreme fruition of this five millennium long Indian quest for the Divine Light of Truth within us. The earliest myths were refined into philosophies, but now vague philosophical speculations are rendered redundant as I have established the scientific basis of this supreme knowledge.
If I recall correctly, Paper taught English. Guy Sorman himself a Jew asserts that the Christian emphasis on Love and Charity was a complete break from earlier Hebraic tradition. These Buddhist missions were still present hundreds of years after Asoka in the 4th Century c. The Jewish Mysticism known as Kabbala which does focus on the Light in its Zohar arose, as Charles Seife has pointed out in his book Zero , in the medieval era linked to the influence of Indian mathematics with its mystically-derived notions of Zero and Infinity.
When it comes to self-aggrandizing 'nationalistic' false propaganda, Judaism has no equal. Certain sects of Hassidic Judaism such as Habbad view the world as created only for the sake of the Jews and views all non-Jews as Satanic. The Zionists in Palestine teach such Habbad hate ideology in their schools and to the militia-like army in which all citizens are supposed to serve.
These historical myths were probably revised and added to with Persian and Greek political influences right up to the 3rd Century b. The Biblical Israel was not Jewish but a polytheist and non-exclusivist state which, unlike outsider-hating Judaea, mixed with neighbouring cultures. Exclusive worship of Yahweh was forced upon neighbouring Canaanite peoples by the Hasmonean or 'Maccabee' totalitarian regime destroying temples such as that of the Israelite Samaritans.
Nehemiah and his fellow Persian agents were the handful of the Jerusalem elite who chose to return from exile in Babylon after Persian Cyrus conquered Babylon. Most of the descendants of the exiled elite chose to stay in Babylon until the s when the Zionists and the USA pressured Iraq to deport the highly-assimilated non-Zionist Iraqi Jews to Palestine after their 2.
Most Sephardic Jews are descendants of Phoenician-Carthaginian converts given common Canaanite roots. Christian and Islamic mystics report Mystical Union even though this is heretical for Theism. Jordan Paper compared my book to the well-known work of orthodox Catholic apologist Zaehner and stated that I, like Zaehner, was saying 'my mysticism is better than yours'.
I presume that non-scientist Jordan Paper could not understand that this barrage of scientific evidence was corroborating the basic Indian Vedantic-Tantric metaphysics! They, like myself, agree with Joseph Campbell on the Jesus story as mystical allegories copied largely from older traditions. This book provides what I would consider the most likely explanation for the origin of Christianity. When you take away all the elements copied from older traditions, including all the supposed teachings of Jesus and the forged and fraudulent Church histories, all that is really left is the absurd claim that Jesus was a real man and the one and only Son of God and also a Messiah for the Jews.
Along with this is the absurd Materialistic belief in bodily resurrection of the true believers from the grave after the destruction of the Cosmos in the coming Apocalypse. Hellenized Jewish Gnostics, most probably in Alexandria, wanted to create a Jewish version of the Mystery Religions, as existed in other Eastern Mediterranean cultures, in order to steer their Zealot brethren away from war national salvation to seeking spiritual salvation instead. This is the Perennial Philosophy in which, through enlightened gnosis and mystical union, we can realize our True Self and True Identity with the Ineffable Divine Oneness which is the true 'God' in the sense of Creator of the Cosmos.
As I have stated in BBAB, Paul the earliest available source of the Jesus myth makes it clear that the story is not history but mystical allegory. Some early Christians referred to Yahweh as 'The Fool' who deluded himself that he was God and that there was no Higher power than him.
However, in order to make the alien Mystery Cults acceptable to the insular Jews, they also merged the Dying and Resurrected Godman myth with the Jewish myth of the Messiah the Jewish version of the Redeemer myth Hence the story had to be set in historical time rather than mythical time and included references to actual historical figures such as Herod and Pontius Pilate.
The name Iesous is simply Greek for the common Jewish name Yesoshua Joshua: [the name means 'Salvation'] the mythical character leading the fictional conquest of Canaan - the 'Promised Land' is itself a mystical allegory for spiritual fulfilment as Gnostics recognized. Iesous was chosen as the Greek form of the name of the Godman as the Greek letters add up to the numerologically significant number The Christians' use of the Fish symbol was copied from Pythagorean sacred geometry.
Freke and Gandy mention the Crucifixion image from c.
It is the name of some of the religious and philosophic texts that expressed the meaning of religious ceremonies, and discuss the nature and characteristics of God. Out of prakrti comes mahat or buddhi; out of buddhi comes ahankara; out of ahankara comes manas and 10 organs of sense and action.
In spite of the much-hyped 'Quantum Mind' speculative babble spouted by many New Age physicists, Quantum Theory does not involve Consciousness. These texts include Vedic religious rituals and According to Upanishad, piety is the criterion ceremonies and a caste system.
The external organs are instruments of either action or perception. Aum, which is Brahm, becomes unified with Jivatma, and then that becomes unified with Brahm, which is Aum, and this one has no oldness and is immortal and eternal. Indian J Psychiatry. Such myths are also undermined by my work.
Autumn Namaskar. As a general norm, Hindus start the reading with the four Vedas. By what do we live?
The earliest myths were refined into philosophies, but now vague philosophical speculations are rendered redundant as I have established the scientific basis of this supreme knowledge. Zizek's film also ends with a pro-Christian slant based on his totally superficial 'Psychoanalytic' misunderstanding of the true mystical meanings of terms such as 'Son of God' and 'Resurrection' etc. An introduction to Hinduism, Cambridge: university press. It is the holy name that is used at the beginning and end of prayers.
