Following up on 9/12/17 Srimad Bhagavad Gita session…
I am intrigued by the Contemplator-Contemplation-Contemplated upon, i.e., Dhatha-Dhayana-Dheya that was discussed in the session.
Here is my understanding, please correct and/or elaborate on this:
1. The contemplator, the ego is contemplating upon the “I” the Aham.
2. Without the Aham (the subject) there is no object (the ego) to contemplate upon.
3. It may be hard to contemplate upon the Brahman so contemplate upon the Aham which will lead you to Brahman (Aham Brahmasmi, i.e. I am Brahman).
4. Aham is an instance of Brahman that is dwelling in me. The space in the pot versus the space outside the pot (I am the pot), i.e. the awareness in me versus the all-pervading awareness. Reflecting upon statement #3, which is, having realized Aham the objective is to further realize that there is no pot, i.e. Aham Brahmasmi.
