Om May no harm be done Here, May the vessels of the great Seers continue in Salvation, May these movements be in accord with Divine Will, May this desire be motivated by Love, May what is not beneficent wither to obscurity. I prostrate.
25. By means of this, one attains the knowledge that destroys the ocean of samsara or repeated transmigration. Therefore, knowing thus one attains the fruit of Kaivalya or liberation, verily one attains liberation.
“By means of this, one attains the knowledge that destroys the ocean of samsara or repeated transmigration”.
By means of the Truth all untruth is destroyed. To Realise the Truth or Knowledge of the Non-Dual Unity of Existence is to invalidate past experience and understanding of untruth. The consciousness limited by desire and duality that would have lead one back into the cycle of rebirth is expanded through the Consciousness of The Absolute which leads back home to unity with Absolute Consciousness.
“Therefore, knowing thus one attains the fruit of Kaivalya or liberation, verily one attains liberation”
The fruits of Kaivalya are the fruits of the acceptance of the responsibilities of “I Alone Exist”.
That heat and pain of struggle is different now. As in nature a sick body will raise its temperature to kill of microbes.
So here, this struggle towards awakening assaulting the bonds of delusion with the ammunition of knowledge, the weapons of will and the desire for truth at any cost, has caused the resultant heat to burn away all impediments, thus clarifying the truth.
By means of this truth, the seed of Kaivalya is carried to maturation. This divine gift is honoured. Finally free from any former sins, debts or charges the sufferer of the ignorance of desire, creation and birth, is free to return to Absolute Consciousness Alone, “verily one attains liberation”.
Here The Kaivalya Upanishad Ends
Kaivalya is less to do with being Alone than it is to do with Realising ones Solitary responsibility for Realising ones identity as Absolute Consciousness Alone. Being Truth Alone is the reality, not even a goal. Truth Alone sets you free.
After Kaivalya, in the light of Absolute knowledge, all else is seen as illusion.
What remains is Solitary undifferentiated completeness.
“That light is within us.
There is no other help.
That light illumines the direct path,
the straight path.
There is no need to carry anything.
But this is subtle knowledge,
from “The Map of The Journey To God” p38.
Sufi shaikh M.R.Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, may Allah be pleased with him.
The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation.
Neither will they say, “Look, here”! or, “Look, there”!
“for behold, the Kingdom of God is within you”.
Ohm peace, peace, peace.
