My Philosophical Journey
A journey of understanding the Brahma within me
My understanding of philosophic writings being very scanty, I may be false when I indicate that this is just a philosophic conversation about the Upanishads in English, but, at any pace, the absence of kindness and honor showed in it for these some of the broadly spiritual and sacred words that have ever originated from the human mind, is incredible.
However multiple symbolical representations utilized in the Upanishads can barely be comprehended today, or are certain to be inaccurately comprehended, still, the information as incorporated in these, like some infinite source of light, illuminating and vitalize the spiritual mind of India.
They are not correlated with any specific faith, but they have the extent of a common soil that can replenish with living sap all faiths which have any sacred purpose hidden at their foundation, or evident in their fruit and foliage. Faiths, which have their various perspectives, each assert them for their support.
This has been credible because the Upanishads are based not upon theological wisdom, but on an understanding of spiritual life. And life is not opinionated; in its restraining forces are harmonized ideas of non-dualism and dualism, the infinite and the finite, do not prohibit each other.
Moreover, the Upaniṣads do not exemplify the spiritual understanding of anyone's extraordinary soul, but of an incredible age of enlightenment which has a complicated and combined representation, like that of the starry world.
Several creeds may discover their sustenance from them, but can never establish sectarian barriers around them; generations of men in our nation, no very students of philosophy, but seekers of life’s fulfillment, may make abiding use of the texts, but can never deplete them of their freshness of meaning.
For such men, the Upanishad concepts are not completely conceptual, like those belonging to the region of pure logic and reasoning. They are substantial, like all truths realized through life. The impression of Brahma, when evaluated from the viewpoint of intellect, is a conception, but it is concretely true for those who have the precise vision to see it.
Therefore the consciousness of the existence of Brahma has boldly been interpreted to be as genuine as the consciousness of a Gooseberry fruit held in one’s hand, And the Upanishad says :
Yato vaco nivartante aprspya manasa saha Anandam brahmago vidvan na bibheti kadacana.
From Him come back both words and mind. But he who understands the joy of Brahma is free from fear.
