I’ll continue on the 8th verse of the Isavasya Upanishad:
Saparyaka Chukram Akayam Avranam Asnabeeram Suthamabhabaveedam Kavir Manishi Paribhuh Swayambhur Yatha Tatha YaTho Than Vyadadas Chashwateebya Samabhyaha
Pure Consciousness is all pervasive. Today I just wanted to give a literal meaning, an implicated meaning of this verse.
Pure Consciousness is all pervasive, like space, beyond the coming and going, absolute radiant and self-effulgent, absolute radiant and self-effulgent, unembodied, boundaryless, whole, understand Consciousness is not embodied.
Please listen. Consciousness is not inside your body or outside your body. It is everything that you understand. See if consciousness is inside your body and your body and mind is there, then you can say embodied but here Upanishads are very clearly declaring everything is consciousness. Now how can you say you are embodied consciousness? No, embodied means something other than consciousness should exist but here it is not. Unembodied, boundaryless, whole. It is just boundaryless. How will you imagine? Try, try your best. Boundaryless, like space. Boundaryless Whole. Woundless, muscleless. Means if there is a muscle there is a possibility for wound. It is not restricted to your body. It’s beyond any possibility of wounds, muscles having no incompletion with the body. Means you being consciousness will not destroy the body, no, no incompletions with the body. Beyond the gross body. Consciousness is the ever pure space devoid of the dirt of ignorance beyond the causal body and is untouched by the delusion of incompletion. Consciousness is the all-knowing seer of all, past, present, future. The lord of all minds, Maneeshi, consciousness transcends all beings.
Each line I have to spend at least one year to explain. Consciousness transcends all beings. Please understand anything that is can become not. Anything is, can become not. Here no is and not. Consciousness is isness which is beyond is and not. It is like Nithya is beyond Nithya, Anithya beyond Nithya, Anithya is Nithya. So beyond is and not, is isness. The isness is consciousness. Consciousness is existent by itself swayambhu, swayambhu.
Kavir manishi paribhu swayambhu .
With its independent will and intelligence understand it is not some dead light kind of thing. No, it has independent will and intelligence. Having no cause for its happening, means it is not caused by something. It’s Pure Consciousness from time eternal has enriched the ages and each being by ordaining desirable responsibilities onto them as per their nature and space, and their actions and results there-of.
Understand it is consciousness that is centre of the karma chakra. It is consciousness that is centre of everything of that which is everything.
