Philosophy

Forum is a place to exchange ideas, at Forum aDvaita, the exchange of ideas happens with an objective to follow Vivekananda’s philosophy of Advaita. 

 

Advaita has a two state interpretations, one as an experience , the other as philosophy:

  • As an experience – the objective is to reach a non-dual connection with the ultimate reality, but the process or the philosophy is by going through an unreal world.

  • As a philosophy – it is an attempt to create a mysterious atmosphere, and a world ever changing and evolving. The unreal ,something that is known, but in a mutant form and is always trying to become something.

 

When we actually see an illusion, such as mistaking a rope for a snake, it takes only a little while for us to realise that it is an illusion, the water seen in a mirage does not slake our thirst.
