Brahman is Universalized Atman, January 28, 2010

David: Yes.

Participant: When Brahman shows up, as you put it, is it self-authenticating? Is it obvious?

David: Oh my god. It’s beyond that. It’s too big to know. Brahman is too big to know. You should know that you know. There can be no way around that. You can’t not know. The only things you can half know are things in the relative. You can’t half know This. Go ahead.

Participant: The difference between Atman and Brahman.

David: Yes. You want to talk about that?

Participant: Well, I don’t know the difference between them.

David: Then we must talk about it!

Participant: I only know Atman.

David: Yes?

Participant: I think I have some experiences of Atman. I don’t think I have ever experienced anything close to Brahman.

David: Then you’re going to have to keep coming back, aren’t you?

Participant: Perhaps.

David: Unless you rather go a slower route. That’s right, Atman is the opening up of your mind to it’s source. It’s what most teachings can give if they’re authentic teachings. They will give you that glimpse where the mind is absorbed into it’s prior condition, which is void, transcendent, empty, absolute. Now Brahman is the universalized aspect of Atman. In other words, it’s that voidness in everything, everywhere and to enter into Brahman is to see as Brahman, to see in that way. It’s just a question of maturity beyond the Atman. You can only be where you are. You can’t wish to be in Brahman if you are on the level of Atman realization. So be happy, grateful, unceasingly grateful that that has been opened up to you. And then just keep on following that taste. Keep tasting That. Keep dissolving in That. And watch what is forthcoming.

Participant: Thank you.

David: You’re welcome. I’m happy to be here. I’m happy you are here… I’m just happy.
