Mind & Happiness 143

In Verse 18 of Uḷḷadu Nāpadu Sri Ramana says that for Sages the Reality is the formless Substratum, Foundation, or Base that supports the World, thereby implying once again that in their experience the Reality is the One Essence or True Substance that underlies Everything, including all the manifold forms of this World.

That is, since our True Self or Real "I" is the Infinite Reality, nothing can be separate from or other than our True Self. Therefore our True Self alone truly exists, & whatever else appears to exist is not anything other than our True Self, but is just an imaginary form that it appears to be.

Since neither our Body nor this World can have any reality other than our own Consciousness, in which they appear as thoughts or mental images, they are in essence nothing but our own

Since Sages experience only the Absolute Reality, which is Infinite, In-divisible, & therefore perfectly Non-Dual Self-Conscious Existence, Sages do not experience any forms or any limitations.  Sages know only the formless & limitless reality, which is their own True Self.

Since Sages know that the one real "I" alone is, they know that there is nothing that is not "I" or not Real.  Hence from their Absolute Non-Dual perspective, they say that everything is "I" & is therefore Real.  That is, since they do not experience this Body or World as limited forms but only as their own formless & therefore Un-limited Reality, they say that this Body is "I" & this World is "Real".

Therefore, when Sri Ramana says that for Sages this Body is "I" & this World is "Real", he does not mean that our Body as such is "I" or this World as such is Real, but only that as our own formless & Limit-less Real Self, which is their True Essence & sole Reality, they are both "I" & Real.

"There is no Creation, no Destruction, no Bondage, no longing to be freed from Bondage, no striving for Liberation, nor anyone who has attained Liberation. Know that this to be Ultimate Truth."

  the "no creation" school of Gaudapada, Shankara, Ramana, Nome  Ajata Vada

 for very succinct summary of the teaching & practice, see:

[A brief note of explanation  the other Blog noted below is entitled "Non-Duality & Science", & so the more Science oriented pages (from what I like to think of as a "comic book") have been posted there, while other chapters have been posted here. Science is a mental discipline that attracts some worthy admirers & participators.  Some of these, too few, are good prospects for the ancient teaching introduced here in many ways.  Otherwise certain Science topics like the Anthropic Principle, reinforce the general Theism which is a good idea in this materialistic age. A few other topics in Science, such as the Copenhagen II  Max Born  Von Neumann  Wigner model of Quantum Mechanics, are worthy entries to the extent that they introduce Consciousness into the physical Sciences. All that aside, the real topic here is the pinnacle as Advaita Vedanta, Non-Duality  that pinnacle being Ajata Vada, NoCreation. The great Teachers of the same include Sri Shankara & Sri Ramana Maharshi.  Both would support Theism in general & adaptations of Vedanta, such as Vishishtadvaita Vedanta  Qualified Non-Duality, for those not making headway in Ajata Vada, their present course of growth might be better served with a temporary involvement in Qualified Non-Duality. The scientist who perhaps best expresses the influence of Qualified Non-Duality in Science, for instance, would be the quintessential "NewAge" Quantum Physicist, Amit Goswami. And so to that source, & the Quantum Activism he currently advocates [with a 1course  degree program], along with more than a half-dozen good books & former participation in the controversial What the Bleep movie, to him I extend enthusiastic endorsement, for that Qualified Non-Duality described in the context of Science.  I do not stand so much "with him", as much as nearby saluting his good work. Again, as here, the goal is inserting Consciousness into Science & "saving the World."]
