In the Upanishads, ancient scriptures, Consciousness is described as the innermost nature of every living being, pure and unchanged. Neither birth nor death, nor re-birth can alter this. It is the Real, the unchangeable. In contrast, body, mind, and personality are changeable and are therefore defined as unreal, or illusory. We are living in a world where most do not have a Guru to teach the purpose of life. Then, how do we define a life’s journey that consists of physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual needs? How does one understand Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha? “Realize consciousness inside and achieve infinite bliss” remains more conceptual than practical in real life. Mandukya Upanishad in just 12 verses, yet in a profound way, described how the entire cosmos came into existence through the vibration of “AUM” which covers all three states described as waking state, dreaming state and deep sleep state and three Gunas known as Sattva (purity, clarity and harmony), Rajas (passion, energy, and activity) and Tamas (inertia, resistance and darkness). There is silence at the end of “AUM” which is described as infinite consciousness which is called fourth or Turiya state. Parameshti (the Supreme Self) needs to be understood as it can solve any problem in a moment, when the Supreme Self is understood, the secret of creation (Srishti) can be understood, when the secret of creation is understood, the significance of the society (Sameshti) will be relevant, and when the society is understood, the individual (Vyakti) role can be understood. Matters relating to our thoughts (Prathibhasika) is like the foam, matters (Vyavaharika) relating to the world is like the waves and experiences (Paramarthika) relating to our mind is like the ocean. They are simply manifestations of the same entity. Our life is like building a house. We inquire about the best place to build the house which is self-inquiry. We build the self-confidence that we could mobilize the resources to build the house first which is the foundation. We achieve self-satisfaction which is like the wall of the house. We build the roof that would protect the house, which is self-sacrifice, and when we make that house into a home, it is self-realization. The knowledge we gain through the senses and body (bhoutika jnanam) is worldly knowledge, the knowledge we gain through our mind is rational (sujnanam) knowledge whereas the knowledge we gain through our heart is (Atma Jnanam) knowledge of the Consciousness. The knowledge about our consciousness can be gained through four methods namely Agama (Traditional), Upamana (Comparison), Anumana (Inference) and Pratyuksha (Direct perception). By reading the scriptures, we achieve mental union with consciousness (Bhava-samadhi), by comparing our individual qualities with that of consciousness, we achieve spending time with the consciousness (Salokya-samadhi), by inferring the qualities of consciousness at the third stage, we begin to see the total qualities of consciousness (Samajpya-samadhi) and finally when we get direct perception, we enjoy the union with consciousness (Sayujya-mukti). Sage Narada brought a mango fruit to Shiva and Shakthi. Shiva asked Shakthi to eat that fruit, but she decided to give it her children Ganesha and Karthikeya but Narada indicated that the whole fruit should be taken to enjoy the benefit of the fruit. Shiva arranged a competition for Ganesha and Karthikeya that whoever can travel the cosmos three times first will get the fruit. While Karthikeya left to do that in his vehicle Peacock, Ganesha circumambulated his parents and got the fruit. What is the purpose of this divine play? Divine power resides in every being in the form of Shiva (consciousness) and Shakthi (life force). This divine power manifests in various forms which are merely temporary but are needed to visualize the divine power. One who transcends three Gunas achieves the fruits of infinite bliss.
