GEMS ON THE WAY TO THE ABSOLUTE : 108 Sentences Selected and Compiled from The Realisation of The Absolute by Swami Krishnananda
One becomes non-existent , who knows that Brahman is non-existent . Who knows that Brahman Exists , is said to Exist Truly .
Long ago , the Rigveda has proclaimed : " The One Being the wise diversely speak of " . All philosophy proceeds from this , all religion is based on this .
The world , as it appears , is found to be lacking in reality , and so , is unreal . Hence the need for the higher Light . " What is That by knowing which this everything becomes known ? " ( Mund . Up . 1 . 1 . 3 ) .
The world is a presentation of outward variety and seeming contradiction in existence . It is a disintegrated appearance of the Absolute , a limited expression of Infinitude , a degeneration of the majesty of immortal Consciousness
The Attainment of Perfection is the Conscious Integration of Being . This is the central theme of the Upanishads . The Upanishads are intuitional revelations , and intuition is integral experience .
