Absolute Truth from Mandukya Upanishad

There is no dissolution, No birth, None in bondage, None aspiring for wisdom, No seeker of liberation, None liberated. This the absolute truth. (Mandukya Upanishad 2.32) There is no name for the Supreme Truth or Supreme Power or Brahman. It alone exists. The world we see simply rise and fall likes waves in the ocean in the Supreme Truth. There is no existence outside That. The same energy that is found in the still unfound universe is found in us. It is ignorance that makes us cling to name and form. All names and forms of God are human made. They have limitation. Anything created by human beings is far removed from truth.
