Om, That (Brahman) is infinite, This(Universe too) is infinite. The infinite (Universe) emanates from the infinite(Brahman).  Assimilating the infinitude of the infinite(Universe), the infinite(Brahman) alone is left.


OM, Purnamata purnamitam purnat purnamutachyate, purnasya purnamataye purnamevavasishyate – Bri.Up V.i.1

THE KNOWER BEHIND THE KNOWN

                                                                      THE KNOWER BEHIND THE KNOWN

 

Whenever in front of a mirror

No matter how I looked

I thought I am that

Whenever I felt hunger and thirst

No matter where it was

I thought I am that

Whenever I had imaginations

No matter good or bad

I thought I am that

Whatever I learned with pride

No matter how deep it was

I thought I am that

Whenever I felt enough for the day

I slipped to sleep

I felt nothing –

Absolute ignorance

Really?

If I am ignorant,

How do I know that?

Then,

Who is that silent knower?

The knower of my personality

The knower of my needs

The knower of my thoughts

The knower of my determination

The knower of my ignorance

Is that the real ‘ I ‘ ?

When I thought thus,

Silence engulfed me.
