VEDANTA, UNITY AND UNIVERSALITY,
THE UNITY OF TRUTH
If we affirm
that God or Truth is One and then proclaim that we or others are apart from it, have we
not contradicted ourselves? To affirm that Truth exists is to acknowledge that it is part
of our own being. Once the mind is cleared of its conditioning this unity of Reality
shines forth like the sun divested of the clouds.
those who have purified their minds through the practice of deep meditation realize this
Oneness of the universe. To discover it we must value the life and teachings of those who
have realized it, and shape our action and behavior accordingly. It cannot be arrived at
through the mind alone but only through the totality of our life and our every action.
