115. బ్రహ్మపథము (Brahmapadamu)


After having known the limitation of the individual self, and crossing some hurdles of seeking and declaring ones' independence with the Guru even by cheating him, one who perseveres in the path of spirituality moves into the realm of Brahman. The self now not only moves but also grows in his consciousness very vast.

It is expansion in consciousness. We move in path of Master i.e. we are moving towards universalness, which is ever expanding. There is no end to the expansion of the brahmand, which for purposes of classification is called by some as parabrahmand.

Brahmapadam means we are moving in the brahmand, in the path of Brahman. Brahmalaya is where we get into brahmalaya. Atmalaya comes before. This atmalaya has been taken as brahmalaya. When we come to the parabrahmand, this atmalaya becomes brahmalaya and we move into the realms of para brahmand, a realm which is not discussed in the majority of the philosophy books. In vedanta, no one talks about parabrahmand, they talk about Brahman because direct reference of parabrahmand is not there either in the Vedas or Vedanta. It is available only in scriptures, in smrti. Brahman is the Ultimate in Veda, there is no concept of Parabrahman in Veda. The words Parabrahmane Namaha are available only in smrti, not elsewhere. We get words like 'aham brahmasmi', 'tatvamasi' but we do not get parabrahman in Vedas. The concept of parabrahman is required in religion.

The rings of different hues of light shown in the picture in the game of life are indicative of the expansion of consciousness which usually appear as yellow or orange or violet and certain times as simple white light. But in the vastness that is experienced many times, we are mostly in achromatic regions.
