"The purpose of gaining this self-knowledge,
as pointed out by the scriptures, is that
self-knowledge gives us freedom or Moksha
Purushārthaha – the highest goal called Moksha."
Vedanta is the end portion of the Vedas that teaches Brahma Vidya, the knowledge of the limitless being, which is, according to the Upanishads, the Self.
Vedanta reveals that the nature of I is free from any limitation, it is one, non-dual being. The general understanding of the I is ‘I am limited’ time-wise, space-wise and knowledge-wise. It is because of this conclusion that I am struggling to become happy. This is what is referred to as ‘Samsara’.
In order to get out of that endless cycle of birth and death, I need to know my essential nature as free from death, free from change, free from any limitation whatsoever.
You are the whole, you are full and complete as you are.
You are everything you want to be already.
You are the gold in and through all the ornaments.
All you need is to know, to remove the darkness of ignorance, to know yourself as such.
That is Freedom, that is Moksha. That is what ultimately every being is searching for in life, freedom from pain and suffering, freedom from the sense of smallness and inadequacy.
We all want to be happy, at all times and in all places.
We cannot find that in the world, the world is changing, that is the wonder of this creation, of this life.
Therefore I have to look somewhere else. Somewhere I have not yet thought of so far, somewhere closer than the closest.
Myself. That is Vedanta.
Like any other undertaking in life we prepare ourselves accordingly, we get clear on where we want to go or where we want to be, we get the road map, we ask someone who has done the journey already & we prepare ourselves with the necessary tools and skills.
When it comes to the studies of Vedanta it is very similar:
1. We get clarity on the goal & the fundamental problem - Sādhya & Purushārtha Viveka
2. We get clarity on what is serving & what is not - Dharma & Adharma Viveka
3. We get clarity on what is I and what is not I - Ātma & Anātma Viveka
4. We get clarity on the means - Sādhana
5. We get clarity on how I prepare myself - Sādhaka
6. We get guidance from teacher, teachings & Īshvara
