Hinduism Doctrine And Way Of Living

KARMA

IF ALL SOULS are united jointly and severally with the Supreme Being, why should an ethic be necessary to realize this? The reason is that, as already explained, attaining freedom from error in this matter is not a. process of study or a gathering of information, but something like waking from sleep, a change of state. A man has a dream. He is distressed by what he goes through in the dream.

How can he escape from that distress? Relief can come only through waking from sleep and realizing that he was dreaming. Similarly, we must wake up from the separation that deludes the soul and liberate ourselves from our sorrow. Therefore do the, Upanishads proclaim Arise, Awake! Jnaana, the realization that the Supreme Soul is within us, is a waking from sleep.

It is not like learning from another that has seen it that some one is in the next room or village. It is not a mere bit of knowledge obtained by enquiry; it is a change of mind, of feelings and of everything inside one, a change not less but more than the change from sleep to waking, very like to a change from night to day or death to life.
