तत् त्वम् असि
TAT TVAM ASI – THOU ART THAT.
- That Eternal Truth, The Absolute –Existence (SAT),
- Consciousness (CHIT),
- Aanandam (BLISS), is your Absolute Identity.
Due to the restlessness of the mind, the individual self is covered by the relativity or Maayaa, the executive wing of Mother nature. This is perpetuated by the Laws of Karma, i.e. the Gunas – Sattwa, Rajah, Tamah. This creates the illusion of Creation, Maintenance and Dissolution. This is nourished and maintained by Actions influenced by concepts of reward and punishment. This in total is known as destiny, which itself is an expression of relativity or Maya.
Only by daily sincere practice of Kriya Yoga, one can subdue the seemingly invincible restless mind. Once the mind is calm, it can unite with the pure consciousness in meditation. In due time, the Samadhi is attained. Jeevan Mukta or Super Cosmic State is attained.
