Pranams! The entire essence of Vedanta is contained in half a verse: Brahma satyam, jagan mithya, jivo brahmaiva na aparah – Brahman alone is absolutely real, this world is an illusory appearance. The individual soul in essence is none other than Brahman’. (Brahma Jnanavalih, Verse 18) Vedanta says this world is nothing but Brahman plus name and form which are not substantial additions. A mithya addition does not truly count. One plus any number of zeroes is still only one. Gold is one, in the world of all gold-forms. So too Brahman plus a myriad forms is still non-dual and preserves Advaita intact. Sages have gone further and said this world is indeed a valueless addition to Brahman. They gently whisper a secret counsel to ripe seekers blessed with detachment to treat this mithya world as a mere dream without substance. Such a paradigm shift in our world view helps the mind to turn within and dwell on the Self, the sole Reality! Our Mandir is the ideal home where we can hope to return back to the Source and realize the eternal truth. Yours,
Ramesh Viswanathan, ITA President
