WHO GET’S LIBERATED? by Swami Sarvapriyananda

“In the 13th chapter, 2nd verse of the Bhagavad Gita, the question is asked, Who get’s liberated?”

Questioner: “Brahman cannot have ignorance. I am Brahman so I also cannot have ignorance. So whose ignorance is removed by Vedanta?”
Shankarachya: “Why are you asking this question?”
Questioner: “Because I don’t know, I’m asking.”
Shankarachya: “Therefore you’ve got ignorance, you just said you don’t know.”
Questioner: “Well I’m Brahman.”
Shankaracharya: “Yes, but do you know that??”
Questioner: “No”
Shankaracharya: “In that case you’ve got ignorance.”

“The paradox is there because the individual, the jiva, is an illusory state. It’s not a real thing with real problems. The real thing only is Brahman; it has no problems at all. Therefore this state of uncertainty, this state of inconsistency will remain.

Only when you get liberated, what will happen is you will see, ‘I was never in bondage.’ So the question, ‘Who was in bondage, who gets liberated?’ finally is rendered moot. The problem will not be solved, it just will be dissolved.”

-Swami Sarvapriyananda

MICHAEL: The Real doesn’t need liberation and the false cannot be liberated because only the Real exists.

You, pure Awareness, are forever unattached, regardless of what a thought may claim… new MJ Awakening Blog
March 29, 2017

attachment-unavailable

MICHAEL: The belief that you must give up all your attachments crumbles in light of the realization that it is not possible for You to actually be attached to anything!! That’s right. The witnessing presence that You already are is pure and contains no parts, objects or impurities. Thus you are always and forever unattached, regardless of what a thought may claim. More from swamiji, who is commenting on the Astavakra Samhita:

I am not saying you SHOULD NOT be attached. Astavakra is telling us you are NOT attached. You are not attached to anything. It is the mind which develops attachments: ‘I want this to stay, I want that person to stay, I want this circumstance, this wealth, this health, this place, this environment, I want this to continue.’

This is the mind thinking. Yet beyond the mind, the Atman, the witness, You the being consciousness… you’re not attached to anything, not even to the mind itself. The mind itself disappears in deep sleep. You’re not attached to anything.

-Swami Sarvapriyananda
