No Delusion For One Who Has Understood Oneness – Swami Vivekananda

There is no delusion for one who has understood the concept of oneness – Swami Vivekananda explains this basic teaching of Hinduism (Complete Works 2:153)

If you go deep enough, all will be seen as only variations of the One, and he who has attained to this conception of Oneness has no more delusion.


What can delude him? He knows the reality of everything, the secret of everything. Where is there any more misery for him? What does he desire? He has traced the reality of everything to the Lord, the Centre, the Unity of everything, and that is Eternal Existence, Eternal Knowledge, Eternal Bliss. Neither death nor disease, nor sorrow, nor misery, nor discontent is there. All is Perfect Union and Perfect Bliss. For whom should he mourn then?

In the Reality, there is no death, there is no misery; in the Reality, there is no one to mourn for, no one to be sorry for. He has penetrated everything, the Pure One, the Formless, the Bodiless, the Stainless. He is the Knower, He the Great Poet, the Self-existent, He who is giving to everyone what he deserves.

They grope in darkness who worship this ignorant world, the world that is produced out of ignorance, thinking of it as Existence, and those who live their whole lives in this world, and never find anything better or higher, are groping in still greater darkness.

But he who knows the secret of nature, seeing That which is beyond nature through the help of nature, he crosses death, and through the help of That which is beyond nature, he enjoys Eternal Bliss.
