Aham Brahmasmi … I Am That

अहम् ब्रह्मास्मि is a Mahavakya of Yajurveda, which in English language can be written as Aham Brahmasmi and Ahum Brahmasmi, which means as “I Am That” or in other words, “I Am Brahman” and “My Atman is Brahman” …

 

अहम् ब्रह्मास्मि

Aham Brahmasmi … Or … Ahum Brahmasmi 

I Am That

I Am Brahman 

 

In English language, this can also be written as Ahum Brahmasmi, Aham Brahmasmi and also as Aham BrahmAsmi …

This is the essence of Yajurveda, whose seat in this world (i.e. Aamnaya Peetha which in simple words, is also addressed as Vyasa Peetha) is southern Vedic monastery of Sringeri Sarada Math …

 

CC-1 … Meaning of Mahavakya of Ahum Brahmasmi … अहम् ब्रह्मास्मि …

Aham Brahmasmi (or Ahum Brahmasmi or Ahum Brahm Asmi) means …

  • I Am That …
  • I Am IT …
  • I Am Brahman …
  • I Am Supreme …
  • Innermost essence (Atman) is Absolute (Brahman) …
  • Atman is Brahman … which in other words, can also be written as Atman is Brahm
  • Microcosm is Macrocosm …

 

In above statements …

  • I does not mean “I’ness … It means that which is free of I’ness, i.e. the Atman
  • That which is told as “IT”, is the Atman, which itself is Brahman
  • That which is told as “That”, is also the Atman, which itself is Brahman …
  • That which is told as “Supreme”, is the Atman, which itself is Brahman …
  • That which is told as “Absolute”, is the Atman, which itself is Brahman …
  • That which is told as “Brahma, Parabrahman and Brahman” is the perfectly detached creator of allness, as IT keeps ITself concealed (or veiled) in the background … Thus in reality everything is created by IT, but IT by ITself stays hidden within all that IT creates … This is as IT only is as the finally detached pervader and enveloper of allness and her each part and due to being detached, IT ITself is the supreme witness (Sakshi) and supreme hermit (Param Sanyasi) who is addressed as Brahman in Vedas and who itself is the common innermost essence or self of all (Atman) …

And the same statement is also applicable to the fact which is of an eternal partless-unity of macrocosm and each microcosm and where vice-versa of this statement is also true …

This is due to the fact that “allness and her each part (i.e. Brahmand or macrocosm and microcosm or Pinda)” is none other than a self expression, self manifestation and self presence of the same attributeless infinite Absolute being (Nirgun Nirakaar Brahm, who itself is Swa Prakash or Swayam Prakash), who itself is “That” from which every originally originates, everything is proceeding to IT and IT is also where everything finally dissolves so as to be as IT ITself is, just like a drop of water becomes the ocean after dissolving into (or non-dually uniting to) the ocean …

The word Parambrahma (as is stated in below discussions) is one of the alternate names that are utilized since timeless times, to address “That or IT or Brahman”, who ITself is as the Sarva-Atman (i.e. innermost essence of all) …

That which has ever been silently resting within you, and as the real You In You,

And IT patiently awaits your return back to IT, from where you had started out,

Thus IT is the reason for your final emancipation, but after you have known IT,

Know IT as the Atman which is as Brahmanpath … The path of Aham Brahmasmi …

(“Started out” means from where each microcosm has started or commenced within the supreme genius of Maker’s Makings, uncountable mega-eons and further mega-eons earlier to now)

 

One who has already known IT, has nowhere to go … Except go to IT,

One who has already united to IT, has nothing to do … Except rest within IT,

One who has already become IT, has nobody else to be … Except be IT,

Know IT as your Atman … The finality of all paths, including of Aham Brahmasmi …
