VEDANTA, UNITY AND UNIVERSALITY, THE UNITY OF TRUTH
"Truth is only One:" thus have the sages declared since the time of the most ancient Rig Veda. If we did not have any sense of this one Truth why would we seek to know anything at all? The sense of an underlying order, harmony or law behind existence is the basis of all systems of knowledge. Even to speak of falsehood or unreality is only possible if one recognizes a lasting truth relative to which it can be compared.

If such a truth or rationale for existence can be found it cannot be a mere material or unconscious force. The very fact that the world is intelligible indicates that its basis is intelligence. An insentient force cannot produce order, nor can it organize itself, much less perceive itself. 

There must be a universal power of consciousness for there to be any order to the world and to the movement of the forces which constitutes it.  And if this One Truth is a power of consciousness, how can it be apart from our own awareness? How can any cosmic consciousness be separate from the consciousness of the individual? How could any form of life or mind be excluded from it? Therefore the one Truth must reside within us and within all beings.
