And it is the manas of this sort, — that is, the nianas which ia really identical with Atman, — that [iresents itself in tlie form of all this dual world. Now tht’ amitabindu question may arise: The known is the non-Self.

May we live fully the whole span of Life Granted to us by the Divines! But the fact that Sri-Sankara- nanda, who for many years occupied the aposto- lic seat of Sringeri Mutt monastery in the fourteenth century as the head of the most orthodox school of Aupanishadas the followers of the Upanishadshas commented and other- wise discoursed upon many of those Upani- shads which his great predecessor had left un- noticed, is enough to show that they form a valuable block of the sacred Scriptures, at least in so far as they have been made by religious teachers channels for conveying to their dis- ciples spiritual instruction of no mean order.

Manas, is then in its own state, quite independent, having attained to Brahman’s own state of being. This aspect of manas is cU’scribed by GaudapAdachatj-a, the moutlipiece of aju-ieiit tradi- tion, in his karikas on Mandukyopanishad, Aldta- sdnti-Prakarann verses 47 — 52j. Realization of Truth leads to liberation.


Amritabindu Upanishad – Wikipedia

The aspiiant whose mind is not equal to the contemplation of theNirguna-Brahnian, the Absolute, should resort to Yoga and contemplate the Para- raesvara as described above ; as Dark-necked, as the Lord of the universe, as the destroyer of all sins, as seated in the heart-loti;s, or in the sun, or in the fire, or in the moon, or in the Kailasa or some other mountain.

By birth thou art tittibho, the meanest of the oviparous race. Of all beings the abode; He who, as gracious to all, dwells in all beings ; He am I, Vasudeva. Time brings in past, present and future.

This peculiar beliaviour of mauas is familiar only to the yogins ; it is vidvatpratyaktiha, it is intuitively known only to the wise sages, only to the Illuminate. What are the four Vedas?

NATURE OF BRAHMAN (adapted from Amrita Bindu Upanishad)

For the same reason, Brahman is All and is Himself the Knower The wise man whose manas has attained to nii’odha, and who therefore has attained to the state of Brahman, has nothing more to do. One reaches the summit of consciousness when the mind is detached from the senses. Without hands and feet I am of un- thinkable activity ; without eyes, I see ; with- out ears, I hear; distinct from BuddhiI under- stand ; and there is none who knows Me ; I am ever conscious.

Having known the Knower-of-All, ignorance disappears. It is only restraint of manas that is taught here. The notes accompanying the text of the Upanishads have been compiled from the well- known comments on Upanishads by S’ankaia- nanda and Narayanattrtha.


Of these one hundred and odd Upanishads, only ten have been fully commented upon by S’ri- S’ankaracharya, whose commentaries on Upa- nishads are the earliest extant. He has given refuge to the mighty mountains such as Mauiflka when they were afraid of Indra. Thus knowing the essence of the Para- matman, the Supreme Self lying in the cave, partless and secondless, the Witness of all, having neither the existent nor non-existent one reaches the pure essence of Paramatman.

In reply the sruti says: He was beside him- self with anger and resolved to dry up the Ocean. With- out it no human end that is good can be attained.

NATURE OF BRAHMAN (adapted from Amrita Bindu Upanishad)

That which manifests itself in manas when all its particular forms are neutralized is none else than Brahman.

It does not change when the jar it contains is moved around.

By maya the Self becomes variously deluded and is merged in samsara. Possessed of a high. He, the Grandsire, said: It is ever-eifulgent as the self- conscious A’tman.

Inferior Yogins should practise mental restraint. This Upanishad in Mantra 7 says: Taavadeva niroedhvayam yaavadvriddhi gatam kshayam. Thus no birth or any otber change ever bef.: Xow the question arises: It is a mistake to armitabindu that there are many souls with various limitations.
