Mandukya Upanishad & Karika with Shankara Bhashya – Swami Nikhilananda

A cause is not born of an effect that is beginningless, nor does an effect take birth naturally [from a cause that is beginningless]. Their utility is opposed in a dream. Mandukya Upanishad, verse 5. The mind that is in deep sleep should be awakened and the mind that is distracted should be brought back to tranquillity again.

In verse 1, the Upanishad states that time is threefold: Absorbed in that idea, he realizes it as Atman. If a phenomenal world were to exist, it should, no doubt, cease to be.

On acquiring knowledge [of the threefold objects] and on knowing the objects in succession, there follows consequently, for the man of great intellect here, the state of omniscience for ever. If the cause emerges from the effect and if the effect emerges from the cause, which of the two has arisen first on which depends the emergence of the other?

This AUM is verily Atman. When the mind that has become still tends towards wandering, it should be unified with the Self with efforts. The same is the conclusion regarding the jivas. It both is and is not.


The Mandukya Upanishad (Gaudapa Karika and Shankara Bhashya)

Yet the wise speak oarika the jivas as capable of knowing Ultimate Reality. Whether they be superior to another or equal, there is no ground to prove their reality. It is beyond doubt that the quarters of the Self are the letters of OM. The century in which Gaudapada lived and his life details are uncertain.

When it is still, the appearances do not leave the motionless fire—brand and go elsewhere, nor do they enter into the fire—brand itself. Moksha Moksha Anubhava Turiya Sahaja. Inasmuch as the soul, according to the conclusions arrived at by other schools of thought, takes birth from a fancied empirical view point, it mandujya said in consistence with that empirical point of view that the soul is Unborn; but from the point of view of Supreme Reality, it is not even Unborn.

This duality is but an illusion; in reality it is non-dual. The souls that are thus born are not born in reality. Also, every dreamer, when awakened, does not exist in that place of a dream. This Self-Realization kariika through Yoga meditation of the Yoga Sutras, the contemplative insight of Advaita Vedanta, and the intense devotion of Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra, the three of which complement one another like fingers on a hand.

Those who know the enjoyer hold the enjoyer to be real, whereas those familiar with the enjoyable things think of them to be real. There is a mere fascination for unreal things, though there exists no duality. Under it is included all the past, the present and the future, as well as that which transcends time.


The Mandukya Upanishad (Gaudapa Karika and Shankara Bhashya)

This meditation is enjoined for their sake out of compassion. Again, the letter M leads to p rajna. Similarly, remembering that everything is the Unborn Reality, one does not certainly see the born [i.

It is in prose, consisting of twelve terse verses, and is associated with a Rig Vedic school of scholars. Those who think of creation hold it as the manifestation of God’s power; while others regard creation as nandukya same as dream and illusion.

That which already exists cannot be born and that which does not exist also cannot be born. Similarly, It is said to be existing as the aggregate of bodies, even as ether exists like jars, etc The Vishva and Taijasa state of Self — states Gaudapada — can be a source of cause and effect, the Prajna is only cause, while Turiya state is neither.

The mind in deep sleep is of a different character and is not like that when it is under restraint. The birth of that which is non-existent cannot occur either through maya or in reality, for a son of a barren woman cannot be born either through maya or in reality.
