    What else except Brahman

    • This universe is an unbroken series of

    manifestations of the Brahman.

    • Hence, in all respects, it is nothing but the

    Brahman.

    • Look at this with the eye of illumination and

    a serene mind under all circumstances.

    • The one with open eyes sees only the

    different visible forms and nothing else!

    • Similarly, except Brahman what else is there

    to engage the intellect of man of realization!!

    Who wants the painted moon?

    • Which wise and illuminated man would

    discard that enjoyment of that Supreme

    Bliss and revel in things unsubstantial ?

    a painted moon on canvas ?

    Castles in the sky
