It is one of the most clear and straight forward logical framework to present Advaita Vedanta I have come across so far. The language vviveka also very simple and easy to understand. It presents the philosophy and also presents some meditation exercises to internalize and realize the philosophy. Here are the free translation of a few verses. These are based on the translation by Swami Nikhilananda. There is a scanned version of a edition of the book at http: The form is perceived and the eye is its perceiver.
The eye is perceived and the mind is its perceiver. The mind is perceived and the Self is its perceiver. The Self is not perceived by any other. Ddrg forms objects of vision appear as various on account of distinctions like blue, yellow, gross, subtle, short, long, etc. The eye, which sees them, itself remains the same. The eye has characteristics like blindness, sharpness, dullness, etc. The mind is able to cognize these differences.
This logic applies to ear, skin, etc also.
Dṛg-Dṛśya-Viveka – Wikipedia
Mind goes through states like desire, determination, doubt, belief, non-belief, constancy, modesty, understanding, fear, sleep, dreaming, drf, etc. These can be perceived by the Consciousness. This Consciousness does neither rise nor set. It does not increase; nor does it suffer decay.
Being self-luminous, it illumines everything else without any other frsya. Next the real nature of the Jagat is discussed. The experience of the world is undeniable. Maya and Brahman are introduced.
Maya is defined as to have two powers — projecting and veiling. The projecting power creates everything from the subtle body to the gross universe.
The manifestating of all names and forms in the entity which is Existence-Consciousness-Bliss and which is the same as Brahman, like, the foams etc. The veiling power conceals the distinction between the perceiver and the perceived objects, which are cognized within ourselves, as well as the distinction between Brahman and the phenomenal universe which is perceived outside.
Every entity has five characteristics — existence, cognizability, attractiveness, form and name. The first three belong to Brahman. The next two belong to the world.
Thus, biveka the absence of Maya, which manifests as name and form, the Atman and Brahman are the same. After this intellectual presentation, the book starts presenting various mental exercises to go beyond name and form, and realize this Truth.
The summary of all the various techniques is this:. Having become indifferent to name and form, and being devoted to Satchidananda, one should always practise concentration either within drysa heart or outside. A total of six techniques are given.
The first three are on the inside as three steps to understand the true nature of the Jiva. The next three are on ddrsya outside as three steps to understand the true nature of the world. When these six steps are followed, the identity of the Atman and Brahman will become apparent. Limitation is illusory, but that which appears to be limited is real. The Jivahood of the Self is due to the superimposition of the illusory attributes.
But really it has the nature of Brahman. Thus in a short span of 45 verses, the text gives a very clear theoretical framework and meditations to realize the Truth. Your email address will not be published.
