This audio tells you- 1. How it all started 2. How it is not possible to understand Parabrahma.
Who is Parabrahma?
Parabrahma is the one and only truth. It is beginningless and unless. It is unmanifest and undivided. When Parabrama only manifests itself into the universe. Parabrahma can not be perceived by the sensory organs. Parabrahma can not be understood with the mind. Parabrahma is not confined by space and time.
What is Kalpa?
Kalpa is the lifespan of the universe. One kalpa is 4.32 billion years.
What is the current Kalpa?
The name of the current Kalpa is Shweta Varaha.
A brief description of how it all started is given in Mahabharata. How it all started means how the universe as we see it today started. This is specific to the beginning of the present Kalpa. There is beginning of Kalpa means, there was something even before that. That means on the time scale we are going to fix a certain point at the beginning of Kalpa and start describing from there. There could be happenings, incidents, states even before this. This should be clear. At this point in ti....
A brief description of how it all started is given in Mahabharata.
How it all started means how the universe as we see it today started.
This is specific to the beginning of the present Kalpa.
There is beginning of Kalpa means, there was something even before that.
That means on the time scale we are going to fix a certain point at the beginning of Kalpa and start describing from there.
There could be happenings, incidents, states even before this.
This should be clear.
At this point in time where it all started, there was nothing, there was only darkness.
There were no objects or beings,
There was absolutely nothing. Only darkness everywhere.
Suddenly a huge egg appeared out of nowhere, it didn’t come from somewhere else.
It just got produced out of that darkness only.
Like how butter comes out of the curd.
The Parabrahma is in this egg.
He is not inside the egg as another entity, he is this egg.
He is inside every minute part of this egg.
He controls this egg.
This Parabrahma is a wonder.
Can we envisage his form?
How big he can be?
How small he can be?
What is his colour?
What is his state; solid, liquid, gas?
This egg doesn't have a structure, like the white and yellow in an egg.
This egg is uniform, all around.
Because the Parabrahma is also uniform, all around.
Don’t confuse parabrahma with Brahmadeva, the creator with four heads, whose consort is Saraswati Devi.
Don’t confuse between these two.
Is it possible to define this parabrahma?
You can’t define this as what Parabrahma is.
We can define every object or being in this world in terms of its characteristics and features.
You can describe every object and being.
But Parabrahma you can never sufficiently describe or define to get a fair idea of what Parabrahma is.
That’s why shastra says- neti, neti.
The moment you think that you have understood, be sure that you have not understood.
You can never conclude what Parabrahma is- na iti.
Iti is the conclusion, when you have known something you can say iti,this is what it is, after writing down what it is you say- iti.
Iti Vishnu Sahasranama Stotram sampoornam.
This is what Vishnu Sahasra nama stotra is.
That is your last line.
Your concluding line.
But in the case of Parabrahma, you can never write this concluding line.
Because you can never understand or define parabrahma fully.
This is what these thousands of scriptures, Upanishads, Prasathana-trayi, they all teach.
They only teach that, sorry you can’t learn fully about Parabrahma.
To teach this all these scriptures are there.
Books that tell you in crores of words that, sorry we don’t know this subject.
We can’t teach you.
You go to them for the answer and they tell you, after reading all that, sorry we don’t know the answer.
But in the process, they will take you through a whole lot of things which will make you join their gang at the end.
You will realize that this ignorance is not inefficiency.
This ignorance doesn’t make you any smaller.
This ignorance is not incompetence.
That is how it is.
With your limited mental faculties, you can not fully capture or understand the Parabrahma.
This is what the scriptures tell us.
