Unreality of Duality


Unreality of Duality

As dreams, illusions, and castles in the air are viewed, so is the tangible universe viewed by the wise, well-versed in Vedanta.

There is neither dissolution nor creation, none in bondage and none practising disciplines. There is none seeking Liberation and none liberated. This is the absolute truth.

Atman is imagined as the unreal objects [that are perceived to exist] and as Non-duality as well. The objects, too, are imagined in the non-dual Atman. Therefore Non-duality is Bliss.

The diversity in the universe does not exist as an entity identical with Atman, nor does it exist by itself. Neither is it separate from Brahman nor is it non-separate. This is the statement of the wise.
