This verse highlights that “I”, Atman is Nithya, Suddha, Vimukta, Ekam, indicating One, unattached, Pure for life present.

Undestroyable peace is “I”. Because of ignorance of not recognizing it, we’re searching beyond us. Only implies to recognize atman is with the study of vedanta under the guidance of an able expert. Vedanta does not create Atman but simply removes lack of knowledge. Atman is Self illuminating!!

Just when we see the defects in life (dosam), vairagya perspective establishes, seeing that every little thing is enduring and also grief yet the applicant is not dejected however goes to reputed expert as well as guru factors it out as ‘tat tvam asi’. With constant idea of atman, his anatma gunas dissolve and he’s currently Brahman.

Vikshepam, is not viewing as is! When Brahman is understood deep space goes away. Jiva Brahman aikyam (Aham Brahmasmi) should be frequently in the thought for priyam, love, peace.
Just how can I experience that Self, atman? What’s the course? Gita ch 13 is very crucial … qualification of the hunter is stated for Self Understanding referred as Sadana Chatustaya sampathi. This verse offers 4 points to concentrate on.

Without likes and disapproval, add-ons with any person that you get, via the detects. eyes, ears and so on. sadana chathustaya sampathi describes the requirement to go into vedanta, unless have vasanas from prior births.
Allow the mind continuously think about THAT ekam, (a+ dvayam), unlimited Self, (akantanandam., a+ parichinnam). Consistent concentrated, solitary sharp reflection on Brahman alone assists in the realization of the Self. Then, the universe, bedham, differences dissolves and Brahman alone IS!
This raises the inquiry ‘Just how can I see One, when there are so many?’ bring about the next verse.
A ‘stuthihi’, implying who has a really clear buddhi, mind/intellect, suddha anthakarana, dissolves whatever in that Self.
Mundaka Upanishad begins with claiming, ‘Every little thing originated from the sound OM. Consequently Om is the name of everything.That’s the symbol of Brahman, the inexpressible … liquify all the kinds and names into Om’. They’re all mithya, Brahman alone is Reality. Just when your mind is dissolved you’re near samadhi, closer to jivanmukti.

Since we, human beings have samskarams, deposits from our previous actions (thoughts, words as well as activities), we have taken the birth to experience the repercussions.

Resemble a child!
This knowledgeable is precisely the same as the previous one for even more emphasis on ‘Tat tvam asi’, ‘You’re THAT’.
