Humble salutations to all.

Vedanta affirms that "I", "You", "Everything" is nothing but the ultimate reality of Brahman of the nature of Existence, Consciousness and Bliss absolute. It is but a pity that very few realize their own very nature -- the rest get deluded into the various superimpositions in the form of "I am this body, I am so and so" etc. All these are definitions of the body-mind-intellect complex whereas "I" am beyond all these as the substratum of all these illusory entities.

Realization of this real nature of "I" as ultimate reality of Brahman, the one and only entity present, is the main aim of human life. Until this realization dawns, there will be births and deaths which is full of sorrows-sufferings.

It is ignorance of one's own very nature of Brahman which causes a person to think that he is suffering and will be having birth-death. Once realization dawns through knowledge about the reality of Brahman, then there will be no ignorance at all but bliss, bliss and bliss alone. Realization is possible only through knowledge of the reality of Brahman. Knowledge of Brahman which is the Subject of all objects is possible only through study of scriptures and knowledge taught by the Guru.

Study of scriptures and getting a Guru, surrendering to the Guru should be the prime task of each individual. This alone can give him eternal bliss - that which is being sought by each and every person irrespective of caste, creed etc.

Let us all try to realize our own very nature of Brahman through study of scriptures in this particular blog. Come, let us analyze and understand the subtle concepts of Vedanta in the various postings in the blog.

Salutations to all.
