Brahman qualified by limiting conditions Saguna Brahman The ultimate Brahman is devoid of attributes. The description of Brahman: These things have ceased to have any meaning to that soul, because every place is the same, every place is the temple of the Lord upamishad, every place has become holy and the presence of the Lord is all that it sees in heaven, or hell, or anywhere else. That which cannot he heard by the ear, but by which the hearing is perceived—That alone know as Brahman and not that which people here worship.

Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

The fourth quarter is silence. When the soul has realised that everything is full of the Lord, of Brahman, it will not care whether it goes to heaven, or hell, or anywhere else; whether it be born again on this earth or in heaven. In describing Brahman as omnipresent, all-pervading, unlimited, infinitely great and infinitely small, the Upanishads only point out that It is absolutely spaceless.

Brahman is the only truth, malayapam world is unreal, and there is ultimately no difference between Brahman and Atman, individual self. Brahma satyam jagat mithya, jivo brahmaiva naparah.

This Vedic truth is not a product of the human mind and cannot be comprehended by the unaided human intellect.

Brahman is the essence of the eye ‘ the Eye of the eye’, ‘the Ear of the ear’ the mind etc. Neither good nor bad, neither life nor death — only the one infinite Brahman exists. There is no bliss in anything finite. Vedanta anta ‘the end’ or ‘last portion’ is the essence and culmination of all the knowledge within the Vedas.

But this mental state is impermanent; therefore the consciousness—which in reality is Brahman— associated with the mental state appears to be impermanent. In order to be free we have to pass through vice to virtue, and then get rid of both. The form of that person is like a cloth dyed with turmeric, or like grey sheep’s wool, or like the scarlet insect called Indragopa, or like a tongue of fire, or like a white lotus, or like a flash of lightning. One must desire to understand the Infinite.


Therefore one should not give up the effort for Self-realization as impossible; one should rather strive with faith and reverence.

The ultimate Brahman is devoid of attributes. He who knows this—his splendour is like a flash of lightning. The entire phenomenal universe is subject to the categories of space, time, and causation; but Brahman, the Supreme Reality, is beyond. In contrast with phenomenal objects, Brahman is not in space but is spaceless. Brahman is not grasped by the eye, nor by speech, nor by the other senses, nor by penance or good works.

The speech cannot define Brahman. Brahman does not possess any distinguishing marks which can be described by words.

Here is the greatest of altars, the living, conscious human body, and to worship at this altar is far higher than the worship of any dead symbols. That which cannot be apprehended by the mind, but by which, they say, the mind is apprehended—That alone know as Upanishae and not that which people here worship.

The core of Yajnavalkya’s teachings in upanisuad Brihadaranyaka Upanishad is that Brahman, or Atman, is the knowing subject within us.

The Upanishads describe Brahman as having two aspects: The image of an object is carried to the brain by a sense-organ, for instance the brihadarqnyaka. By the elimination of all differences due to limiting adjuncts, the words Not This, Not This refer to some thing which has no distinguishing mark such as name, or form, or actionor heterogeneity, or species, or qualities.

There is One who is the eternal Reality among non-eternal objects, the one [truly] conscious Entity among conscious objects, and who, though non-dual, fulfills the desires of many. Therefore if brihadaranyakq have enthusiasm for acquiring this knowledge of Atman, do not wait any more but come forward immediately.

Names and forms, which distinguish the phenomenal universe from the state before the creation, are superimposed upon Atman through maya. This is your Self, that is within all; everything else but This is perishable. The Vedas cannot show you Brahman, you are That already; they can only help to take away the veil that hides the truth from our eyes.
